Happy Lunar New Year!!! Gongxi Gongxi... :D

I hope this is not too late... but here's wishing EVERYONE a Happy, Prosperous, & BLESSED Lunar New Year!!!

This picture was taken on the 1st day of CNY (23rd Jan 2012), but I only managed to sort through my pictures this morning, hehe...

Natalie was wearing a pretty traditional "princess" dress which I bought during my last trip to Taiwan. And Hans, was wearing (an almost) traditional Chinese costume which I bought 1 or 2 days before CNY. It was actually meant for him to wear to school, as he said his friends will be wearing traditional costumes, & he wants it as well.

Well, I couldnt find one his size, & eventually found this "acceptable" piece from Kiddy Palace. However, he actually refuses to wear this to school, as it's not a matching "set" with the pants... *sigh*...  This is not something I'd have naturally bought for him in the first place.

Anyways, he wore it during the 1st day of CNY, & that's good enough for me :)

Here, Hans was posing in front of his "calligraphy" written red papers done in school. It has the words "Fu: Blessing", "Chun: Spring", & "Ji: Luck".

He should have written them diagonally, so that they can be put up in a "diamond" shape facing up... but nevertheless, I pasted them up on the wall. And, he was really proud that his work is on display at a prominent place in our home :)

Hope this blog post finds you all well, fed, & all geared up to receive all the blessings 2012 has in store for you ^^

*Gongxi Gongxi!!!*

Souvenir in Ivory

 Laptop Sleeve custom made for a Toshiba Satellite measuring 15.1 x 10.2 x 1.40 inches in Amy Butler's Souvenir (Ivory) fabric.
 Usually, we dont make one with a front zippered pocket, but this was a request by the customer, who wanted it to store her power cords.
Once again, it was a satisfying piece of custom order. We were proud, & the customer was extremely pleased with her new Laptop Sleeve.

Need one custom made for yourself? Contact me at The Laughing House, or email me at pingsping@yahoo.com

Bringing in old designs back

 Cosmetic Pouch made with Japanese fabric: My Folklore
 The base (interior), was lined with another layer of contrasting interface for added support & "body".
 With its wide end-to-end zipper, it provides a spacious & easy storage of my basic cosmetics of compact powder, blusher, lipstick & a fold-in hair brush.

This was actually one of The Laughing House's "oldest" purse design. And, after the first batch sold, we never reproduced it again, nor did I think of selling it as a custom order, as we started getting caught up with the popular 3in1 Purse, & Organizer Wristlets.

Until recently a customer "dug" out my older pieces, & requested a custom order.

She picked one of my Japanese fabric (My Folklore) for this pouch.

It turned out so beautifully, that I think many women would simply love to have a piece of this simple, fuss-free, no-nonsense pouch for their cosmetics in their handbags.

Thus, here's a "re-born" Cosmetic Pouch to be made in YOUR choice of fabric :D

Check it out at The Laughing House for a custom made pouch for yourself ^^

It seems that I've been "missing in action" for the entire month of December, with all the "whirlwind" activities of school holidays, year end travels, getting "re-charged" all over again after the holidays.... catching up with all the orders that piled up.

Before I knew it, it's NEW YEAR! 

Our church believes that 2012 will be a year of RESTORATION, FRUITFULNESS, & FAVOUR!

I say "AMEN!" to that ^^

Embrace it, be rooted in the house of God, & I believe this is what 2012 has in store for me & my family :D

And, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Sibel of Sesideco, for including my Bedroom/House Slippers in this pretty & colourful treasury, Home Sweet Home.

Indeed, there's no better place than HOME ^^

I'm glad to be home, to be busy working again... & am so excited with all the projects & plans in the pipeline for The Laughing House, & Laughing House Fabric this year.

Stay tuned, & have a BLESSED 2012 to everyone!
