Very very last minutes..
Yes.. My baby 1st year celebration is totally a last minutes preparation. I been planning for his birthday earlier actually.. but after few incident especially the robbery incident.. I am out of focus. More focusing on monitoring people come and out fixing back all the damages done by the thieves.. *Sigh*
Still have lots of things need to be done.. but I have to shift my mind to the celebration. There was a time I planned to cancel the party… But when I think back.. why? Why shall I sacrifice our happiness with all this? Life is short and it is such a waste to not celebrating a good day with our loves one while we still alive.
Hence.. all the rush catering order.. cakes.. DECORATIONS!! ha..
I planned and sketched all my idea for my baby celebration earlier too.. when looking at the time constraint I almost cancel this too. But I think again about the fact that I am not gonna have any 1 year old birthday party in future anymore.. so I better do it now.. by hook or by crook! haha.. Not gonna waste my artistic talent for my kids..
Today was my very busy day.. busy preparing everything.. do the shopping for the party.. in between have to take care the kids.. sent to school.. fetched from school.. cooked.. cleaned.. and thousand of chores in between.. sent son to tuition.. and at finally has the time to start with the art project.. Phiewww!
I actually planned to draw mural of Mickey & friends on a big plywood. But it was not as easy as I thought. I need to create the stand to make my mural to sit up.. Ohh I have no time to cut wood and holding hammer at this time (I wished for handy Manny that moment.. haha).
So I finally decided to use polystyrene instead. I’ve done this before so it must be easy for me.. and yes.. it is!
Picture above showing I just finished the 1st coating on my tree’s ‘head’..
So far I’ve done the shading and it’s ready to be stick on the wall.. but I am thinking to have more leaves on the branch.. but see how if my time is enough.. ;p
I cannot wait to start doing the character.. My baby’s party theme will be Mickey & friends. Not that my baby loves Mickey so much. I don’t think he understand about that yet.. ;-p .It was me and my big boy who choose the theme..
I have to Google pictures of the characters.. and I have to draw free hand.. Ah! Easy peasy for me.. hihi.. (What can I say.. I am good in drawing.. ;-p)
I hope I can finished all tomorrow O.o
I need to sew my Minnie inspired dress for the party too.. (Aik?? siapa yang birthday ni?? haha).. Okay.. I know my boys will love me if I did that.. they loves us to participate with all this.. like that. Okay.. may be the youngest still don’t know anything yet. But my son is so thrill with all this..
Not sure if I can pull with the dress project.. but I will update the progress..
So recently I managed to purchased a new 1.. which cost me RM50.. the cheapest I can find from Low yatt KL. The highest price offered to me was RM90!! Yaiks.. Hubby FORCED me to at least checkout on 3 shops to compare prices before purchasing.. and true enough all prices are different.. (Usually I will ended my purchased with 1 shop only.. ;-p)
I thought RM50 was the cheapest I can get.. when I check on SHASHINKI Camera Online shop.. their price is only RM48.. (O.o)
I always found that their price is quite cheap compare to price in the shop.. anyway I might be wrong.. but you can compare the price your self here..
