Wee Memories & Sisterly Love

Hi peeps, it's time for the very first Wee Memories challenge for 2011! This week we are sponsored by The Twinery and the challenge is to create anything using twine.



I simply love the quality of their twine and the colors are gorgeous. So, without further delay here's my  card using twine. I sew the twine to create the grid panels.



I am very happy with the way this card turned out. It looks clean & simple, without being too simple. What do you think? Join us for this fun challenge for a chance to win The Twinery sampler pack. And checkout the DT creations HERE.

Continue with snippets of my trip to Jakarta. You know, what got me tickled pink when I was there? To see this! check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzSfmPqNlBc

(BTW, I never try to post video on a blog. Any tip, instead of just posting a link?)                       

My baby brother's very first TV ads. :) He's a very hard worker and he had made a name as graphic designer and photographer in Indonesia. And, I couldn't be more proud of him. He's such a fun, loving person and goofy as well. But, behind the goofiness, he's very much a deep thinker, a trait that he got from my mom. He also has a photography blog that you can check out here at JERRY AURUM.

I adore both of my brothers. I always know my brothers are amazing people. Yet, I feel like everytime I get together with them, I learned something new about them that just made me adore them even more. My older brother, Jeff, is a cardiologist who really believe in what he's doing, which is helping people. I mean, when he has patients who couldn't afford the medical bill, he'll donate his service for free.

Yes, I am gushing about my brothers. Can't help it. I truly admire them. Both of them are hard workers. They both started from the very bottom of the ladder and they are where they are right now because of their commitment & hard working attitude. Today, I just want to shout it to the blog land how much I love them!

Well, that's a bit about the people that means the world to me. I'll be back tomorrow for Denami Designs blog hop. See you then and enjoy your weekend. Cheers...
