Sample of An Organza Drawstring Pouch


At this point of time, I'm running low of some items like certain colors of Swarovski bicone crystals & 925 Sterling Silver findings .


So I'm hoping I can travel soon and pass Singapore to replenish my stocks. I had checked the internet for Sterling Silver caps, spacers , etc. but the prices are way too high exclusive of shipping charges as well. Oh dear ! I also do prefer to buy my stocks by handpicking them so I can see and feel the actual item before I purchase them just to make sure I'm getting good quality / value for my money.
For now, all I can do is for me to just really cross my fingers and pray that I hop into a plane to Singapore and  travel to buy my stuffs from my regular sellers.

Please , please, please let me go soon ........

An Affair To Remember ...

 



Wow it's been several months since I last posted here. I'd been again missing in action somehow. Well I was actually very occuppied by too many little things coming out here there and everywhere here in Perth. Eventhough my y life hadn't changed  much from being a busy mom in n out of the house I do reveal that I am having much harder time these days as there are more loads of work to take for having no helper at home to manage with housechores. Oh well , lucky I'm pretty much used to the work schedules  now and no one complains if ever I just ignored the mess and piles of laundry and clothes to iron in our home nowadays . Coz if ever they do . I 'll scream out loud in the end and tell them to do the work undone then. Huh ! But of course , they just kept quiet giving me more peaceful moments to give me more room to move around without pressure, knowing I'll be the one and the only one to manage with all the mess like as usual at the end of the day anyways. The normal way of life of a typical mom ... ohhhhh !

A new month ( September ) had begun yesterday and oh it was well started for a change . OMG ! I just hope it goes all the way for the whole month ( fingers crossed ! ) . I had created several pieces of jewelries by the the last week of August  in between fever & dizziness ( there's no way to stop me from making even I'm sick LOL ) just in time for the school event this week. After being sick with cold n flu for several days & still having got the cough , I'm ready to bring my stuffs and myself to the venue. My body pains and fever had been busted by few sips of PANADOL Lemzip luckily for me, huh  !




 I had my 12 y/o son advised the night before to wake me up early so I can load my jewelries and display racks into the car for the Parents Group Monthly Meeting 9am event on 1st Sept , Thursday in the ( ISWA ) International School of Western Australia here in Perth. It was the last night of August , I'm sure with the creating and pricing ,sorting and packing of jewelries to take to school , I will be very tired and as good as dead in bed . If without an alarm or someone to really shake me to wake me up in the next morning it would be absolutely pretty hard . With much delight,  dear son obediently did woke me up at 7:15am yesterday morning. Good boy and well done Tristan muaaahhhhh !

So off all my jewelries n stuffs in the trunk of the car, by the front seat, as well as in between the kids by the back passenger seats.I'm so glad my "WICKA" car is spaceous enough to accommodate all my stuffs . My daughter was quite excited to know I'm bringing my stuffs to sell in school. She's one proud avid fan of my designs and workmanship and always asking if I had sold much during events.
Anyway, I was by the school carpark by 8:20am and started to unload my stuffs into a newly bought trolley from Bunnings Warehouse to ease the transport of my goods into the Drama Studio hall where the venue is. I used to have a good trolley I always used to move my stuffs but my helper was not able to load it into the mover container in Singapore last year when we moved out of Singapore. How I miss that good sized trolley big time !

Some of the mothers where already there dropping their kids off to school  and some taking their early morning coffee bought from an invited Coffee van parked outside the school. Jill the new Leader of the Parent's Group was there waiting for me and she quickly helped me carry some of my things especially the 2 detachable plastic tables. Thanks so much for the great help Jill .

Parents Group Monthly Meeting 9am

Start Date: Thursday 1st September, 2011

End Date: Thursday 1st September, 2011

Location: Drama Studio





The parent's meeting is being conducted on a monthly basis . Focused on the 1st Thursday of each month highlighting the past and present activities of kids and the school . Also informing all parents of the funds available and what had been spent for where and what purposes. Some vendors are invited for the event inorder to raise funds for the group's activities as well as things much needed for the school . I was happy to be invited and do my share of charity for the month of September. 10% of all sales go to the charity fund . It's for me a great pleasure and a wonderful feeling to be of help too.

After a year of my move here in Perth from Singapore, I was finally able to display my works again. It's a good way of exposure and letting people know that if they need to buy gifts or have their precious beaded pieces repaired, I'm always here for them ., rain or shine ! I'm just a phone call away or they can just always approach me in the school. I'm there almost everyday taking the kids' lunches.

Here are some of my sold pieces to happy buyers :




Delica Beads Cleopatra Necklace


Spiral Rope Pearl Fringe Necklace


Swarovski Crystal Necklace


#GBER161 = Blue & Red



#GSE214 = Agate & Pearls




100% Pashmina Shawls . Wrap / Scarf

Not only I was able to sell jewelries during the event. My Pashmina shawls did made a good sale as well ! I still got a good pile of it in several colors although the red ones had sold out as well as the baby blue ones.

To everyone who came to the meeting and to those who supported me , thanks so much. I would be back in the event in November so watch out for the new collection of Jewelries perfectly designed for upcoming December Holidays. They are surely great as Christmas presents ...

So the ISWA Parent's group meeting on the 1st Thursday of each month is an Affair to Remember in your calendars !

 Please note it down & Thanks for all the support !
