A new customer whom I have "met" over the phone offered me and Bryant a place to stay in Singapore when we will be going there for treatment. Now that is what I call RAK. No questions asked...I am indeed touched and although the day started badly, after that it didnt matter anymore. Why worry about office politics or material possessions? It is meaningless...
And today I received another email from another customer offering to help spread the word...it is indeed instances like this that keeps me going...SCRAPBOOKING helped me get through the worst of times, and I hope by making it affordable we can in turn help others. We would also like to help in terms of employment and we are looking for a new forum moderator. So if anyone knows of anyone who can "contribute" to our site and has lost a job because of a special need child, we welcome them with open arms!

was this week's challenge for us.
Scrap-n-Crop.com joined Datin Catherine Lai to bring awareness about craft, charity and the environment.
Working around the theme RE-STORE, we demonstrated how old stuff, recycle-able items and scraps can be used to make beautiful projects and gifts that will last a lifetime.
More importantly, we highlighted how something as simple as craft can bridge the gap between women and assist those in need; both in terms of employment for stay @ home moms with kids with cerebral palsy as well as the women in the Ti Ratana home - Outreach Programmes which Scrap-n-Crop.com and Datin Catherine Lai passionately champions.
Datin Catherine Lai explaining to the participants how to conserve and restore projects with scraps and recycle-able items.
Demonstrating how used red packets can be turned into beautiful greeting cards.

Fiona Carter, DT for Maya Road is our Guest DT of the month! What perfect timing as everyone is goo-goo-gaa-gaa over Maya Road right now! FIONA CARTER lives on Sydney's north shore with her husband,Paul, daughters Emily and Phoebe and bunnies Bubbles and Butterscotch...
Here's what she says (taken from http://www.scrap-n-crop.com/);
"My interest in crafts goes way back to my childhood. The crafts I dabbled with were many and varied, but a constant interest in "cutting and pasting" was evident - anything that included papers, pens, pencils and creative lettering always grabbed my attention. As a little girl, I would beg my mum to buy me new pencils, pens and sketchbooks so I could draw and sketch. I am still in possession of some of those sketchbooks and I treasure them.
In 2000, I was introduced to scrapbooking through a friend. I was hooked! I loved he concept of scrapbooking, recording the story of my family's lives in such a creative way. My interest in scrapbooking grew quickly and my first scrapbooking layouts were published within a year of starting this wonderful craft.
I love telling a story of my layouts. I use a combination of alot of photos of our everyday life with journalling to tell the tales of our family. The majority of my layouts are event driven. I feel I am able to add multiple photos and elements on a layout without it appearing cluttered. My scrapbooking is elegant and stylish with clean lines, lots of color with a bit of fun and humor thrown in! We know how to have a laugh in our family, and that is extended into my layouts. I hope in many years that my family can look through our albums and laugh as we remember the fun things we did.
My work has been published in Scrapbooking Memories, the Australian edition of Creating Keepsakes, My Reflections magazine, Paper Crafting with Photos (a Paper Crafts publication), Stamping and Papercraft magazine, Australian Papercrafts as well as several ideas books and special interest magazines in Australia. I have had my projects displayed at several CHA trade shows (in the Maya Road, Paper Salon, Piggy Tales and Urban Lily booths) and a recent National Stationery Show in the USA."
