#14 Little Julie - A motivational quote from 'Maid in Manhattan', one of my favourite movies where I don't mind JLo's acting hehe, and it struck me strongly. It's not just about picking yourself up from the ground when life trips you over into unexpected tumbles, it's also about taking that first step moving forward and continue doing your best in life with what you still have and make something better out of it.
It makes me happy to think how I'm somewhat doing just that with my life right now, even if there are days where I just don't feel like myself and it's never ending, but I'm getting there. I'm happy with where I am now, with my love for painting and making people smile with my work. Believe you me! This is just the beginning :)
hehe I thought this was so cute, just had to have it on my blog :P (via tumblr)
A handful of exciting things have been happening lately! (^_^)
Firstly, I'm a busy bee in my room working on crafty projects at night, and pretty much just experimenting on how I can do things better, and playing with colours and pretty textiles <3 Even constructed a fabric index folder, a collection of all the fabric patterns I owned in the past :) whoop whoop!
Secondly, I got a call from a friend who requested me to paint a gift for her friend! MY FIRST REAL CUSTOMER! :D (Besides Anna, my sister haha) I was so excited and nervous noting down the order and discussing the idea for the painting with her! Super awesome! I'm still feeling all bubbly inside when I think about it! (^_^) Thanks youknowwhoyouare* for the opportunity!! <3 <3
& Thirdly, my family and I went to the new IKEA tonight in Springvale, or wherever, and I walked out with an AS-IS wardrobe and drawer set LOL! :D So cheap! It's about time I replace my collapsing wardrobe.. I swear one of the doors were going to fall on me if I didn't catch it in time (-_-) It's a much smaller space though, so I don't know how I'm going to hang all of my clothes! Wahh, dilemma, I guess I should start on my spring cleaning. Been meaning to do that anyway, just not so soooooooon! (T_T)
Okay, time for me to get busy again :) lalalala, hope everyone is having a lovely night! <3
Love, from Julie xox
