Sabrina and Mr Graeme 2010-2011

Mr. Graeme, Sabrina's Homeroom Teacher in 1B. Mr Graeme is from Scotland and he is back for good to his hometown after the school ends. So, before the school term end, Sabrina told me that she wants to give something to her teacher as souvenir.

Just a simple gift and not an expensive but it was with a sincere heart from Sabrina. A simple gift makes Sabrina happy for the whole day that she had somethig to give to her teacher. I took 2 days to paint the small MDF board with all the distraction around me. The ideas came from one photo when I surfed the net looking for inspiration.

The apple I painted refers to the book I bought a long long time ago, Handpainted Gifts for All Occasions by Kerry Trout from North Lights Books publisher.

Tea set

My first painting on tea set, done for the Charity Bazaar. I'm very satisfied with the outcome eventhough the colors of the roses a little bit different from the original one before I put it in the oven.

The rose color before I put it in the oven .

The rose color become a little bit yellowish and became peach instead of white. You can see the difference between above picture n this picture. Overall I like it very much. Why must I heat it in the oven? The main reason is to make the painting permanent on the ceramic. And if you want to bake it, make sure you follow the paint manufacturer instruction. Some of the enamel acrylic paint can bake at range 150 degree n some paint at 180 degree. But for Enamel Acrylic Folkart, can bake at 180 degree, higher than Pebeo.

Do not afraid to bake your ceramic because the making of ceramic also involves baking in the oven.

8th Anniversary

Happy Anniversary

Yesterday was our 8th Anniversary. Thank You Allah for giving us opportunity to treasure the sweetness of our marriage. No celebration taken because hubby always busy with his work. He was not at home recently due to his overloaded work. I'm ok with that as long as he remember our anniversary.

As melayu quote, kasih hingga ke hujung nyawa....till death do us apart. Haila...why....I'm so sensitive/touching today. Is it because of weather ( here the weather so gloomy due to sandstorm) or is it just because of the gloomy of my heart. LOL. No matter what, i'm very happy n thankful to Allah for giving me 2 beautiful daughters. They are my sweethearts..buah hati pengarang jantung mama. Love u all very much.

Maliki... Sabrina's hamster. The name given by Sabrina. Last Wednesday was Maliki last day with us. Died after being sick for a few weeks. r. We bought her when Sara was born. Sabrina and hubby took care of her... clean her cage, play with her n bought some toys for her.

If you look at the above pictures how she squeeze her body to fit the hollow cylinder. When my hubby clean her cage, Sabrina will play with her...rolling the cylinder or enter the cylinder. Maliki sometimes will run all over the house meanwhile Sabrina will catch her. Now, everything is just a sweet memory. Good bye maliki. May you rest in peace.
