my new header

What do u think of it? I was trying to put this one...

But find it hard to do that, I would always end up with the title written now over the header, I don't know how to remove that.
I did that using photo shop element and a few free scrap booking files from around the net.

Anyway, I still have nothing new to share except that I had a shopping spree in the weekend for some needed stuff and some very unnecessary ones. But what can I say? nothing lift the spirit more than shopping. especially when you have the money for it.. lol

And of course 7amdillah the kid is doing much better , but after all those sick days she is getting very aggressive and hyper mashallah, well I think no matter what she is better this way. I would never want to see her sick again, inshallah never.

Hope every one had a good weekend, I just want to start doing something with my rooms, I never neglected decorating for this long..

Babushka mania..

I loved my small babushka very much that yesterday I just had to make another one, this time I decided to make it into a toy like form..

Here is my lovely, still recovering daughter mashallah showing the size of it...

And since I've been sick , mom got me some pretty flowers..

So pretty, I was very happy with them because I just love Hydrangea and this is my first time to see one in real life. Besides, it's a plant so this way inshallah it might live longer.

Life can be so good 7amdillah..

My little Babushka doll..

Well 7amdillah my baby girl is feeling much better again , we can now hear her voice singing and laughing, what a sweet voice mashallah..

I'm feeling a bit better too since I started my anti biotic, turns out a throat infected is a throat in pain, too much pain, 7amdillah.

But as always pain leaves me depressed and anxious so after a lot of thought and time, I decided to go ahead and craft anything to try to get me out of that mood again. I got this idea of babushkas all over the net ( some call it matryoshka too , it's a Russian nesting doll as I understood from wikipedia)

So I saved a picture for inspiration from I can't remember now which blog, and I changed it a bit to make a needle book out of it...
Here is the babushka from the outside...

And from the inside , the needles happily have a place of their own...

I think that really made me feel human again, thanks to Allah for the gift of crafting.

A few bumps in the road of adjusting

My kid has been very sick for a while and it was hard seeing her just sleeping there not wanting to do her usual favorite things or eat anything at all. She is doing better now 7amdillah, but I think I caught something from her, now it's my turn..!

Well I haven't done anything yet in the new rooms concerning decorating, I just put everything in a place waiting for the right mood to start. But this is a picture of where I spend most of my days..

My computer desk

Have a good day.

From shrek soundtrack..

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the g&*#?
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?

Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero
I'm holding out for at hero 'till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero 'till the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me

Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear there is someone somewhere
Watching me

Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'till the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'till the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

(I'm holding out for a hero... nice song)

Shop till you drop

Is my recent favorite saying, and my best way to exercise these days...Not good though for my bank account..! (which I finally have now after years of begging)

Of course I don't go shopping looking like that! although I do wear black..( I found that shopping girl while googling shopping bags, since I can't find the wire to transfer pictures from my camera yet)

Have a nice shopping day

Still hanging on there, waiting for one door to close and the other to open, with our eyes on the future looking for the good things in the middle of a bad situation.

Not quite sad, yet not happy.. Just waiting to find the path..

Plus we are buried in boxes and dust..! I hate moving. Have a nice weekend.

When life gives you lemons..

Decorate them..!
Well at least that is my saying, I would prefer to think of every thing in my life as a thing that is waiting to be decorated, that's the only reason why when I have to change houses willingly or not, all I can think about is how will i decorate the rooms in that house, what colors will I pick, and what painting technique will i try..

You see it's a kind of a self defense mechanism against the negative thoughts that might associate bad moments.

And that's why these days all I can think about is how to change this...

Into something like this....

And that is only one of the schemes i thought about...!

About the friends post, I know that I haven't been making people able to show me how good a friend they are, I isolated myself somehow and just retreated inside my shell , refusing much help from others, but I think that we all cope in different ways, and my way is to not talk about my problem, and not listen to anything that might make me feel sad or bad , even if it was only meant for my own good.
But I still know how much You all care , and I still appreciate my friends and family in every way, I just need time to feel strong again, and I know that you will understand.
