I've been a Soap/Lotion fanatic from as young as 10yrs old. It was sparked off by a room-mate when I was 10yrs old, who would diligently uses generous portion of lotion on her arms & legs after every shower. I'd look on, amazed at how her skin shone afterwards, and how nice she smelled ;)

I've been selling online for the past 1 year (almost)... and one of my earlier "struggle" in keeping afloat is: How to spread the word? I believe I have a great product, great price, and definitely... wonderful customer service *ahem* hehe...So, why arent my jewelries, & purse/pouch flying off the shelves?

I'm excited to finally receive our last batch of custom orders ;) Receiving the package from my mom yesterday, felt as though "I" am the one on a huge shopping spree..WOOHOO!!! haha...the fabrics are beautiful, and the finished products, simply AWESOME!
Well, that aside, time for more work now, as I need to get busy:
- taking their pictures
- editing, n adding to my FLICKR account
- contacting my buyers to let them know items are completed
- packing them up & sending them off to the PO, asap ;)
TLH's current Best-Selling item, the Organizer Clutch Wristlet, in Lily Espresso (One of my personal fabric choice from the last batch of fabric shopping spree)
This is a Mini Sling Purse (in Red Lily Manzanita), measuring 4x4" with a 44" strap. Perfect for a short trip out, and just enough to put some money, tissue, keys, lipstick, and your cell phone :)

My 5yr old son has been having mild to moderate Eczema for the past 1 year. To doctors and healthcare staff, its "Mild", but to us...its "Severe". We've seen how it flares up badly, n how he'll scratch himself till the rashes bleed, and some of his older "wounds" never healing properly, n getting infected all over again.

Hans (in red) playing with the plasticine that the teacher just distributed for everyone. The teacher (politely, short of complaining) told me everyday, that he has a very short concentration time span, n will start roaming around the classroom after a few minutes of being seated.

I was pretty much dreading the month long school holiday (for my son who's in kindergarten) partly cuz my mom who was here to help out the past 2 months just went back, & my 18mth old daughter and I were down with flu 2 weeks ago.
Well, it has been more than a week now (into the school holiday) and it has been much better than expected! lol...perhaps it was due to some mental preparation, planning, & (slight) adjustment to my daily routines.
1st of all, I enquired for some holiday art classes at a nearby community club, & was pleased to have found a class that'll run for 2 weeks (3days/wk, 3hrs each) and timing is perfect at 930am-1230pm. It'll almost be like his school hours, except that its only 3 days a week, and for 2 consecutive weeks :)
He was happy to join as well, cus it means he'll have plenty of chance to paint (and mess up) which I dont readily allow him at home sue to several reasons.
Another adjustment is, WINNIEL, my online jewelry shop. I alrd have a hard time catching up, or finding peaceful, uninterrupted & highly inspired hours to create new pieces. So, I'll just take this easy, and opt for a break for the time being ;) YAY!!!! hehe...:P
But, I've alrd put aside 3 new Pearl Necklace designs to work on, incorporating fine silver pieces into them. I'm excited abt them, & cant wait to see how the finished pieces will look like!
The Laughing House, on the other hand is "narrowing" down on its "specialty" & I think it has finally found its "niche" (if u can call it that!) CUSTOM ORDERS has been our secret success there of late, so...while the current is strong, I'll continue to tap on that for now, while putting WINNIEL on hold for this month.
On top of all these, its really high time for me to organize my work table, drawers, beads & everything else. So, when my husband is able to take leave nx week, I cant procrastinate any longer, & seriously tidy up! Table, #1...followed by wardrobe. Its the Great Singapore Sale (GSS) now after all....haha...:D
Come to think of it, school holiday is really not such a bad idea after all! I'm enjoying it as much as my son ;) almost!
