It's been more than a year!

OMG it's been more than a year since I posted an entry!

I think I had been really busy, since my very last helper left. The very last helper left last August, I think. I started to pick up the chores, the sh*t that the previous helpers left behind, and taking care of the house the way I want.

It was really tough in the beginning, as I took over all the chores so suddenly, and my crochet schedule then was really packed to the brim. Thank God for His strength that I managed to pull through that tough period. I remember I fell sick alot and also lost alot of weight. But apparently, things got easier over the year-end as I gained back 4 kg which I never lost LOL

But still, time was a luxury for me as I needed to do chores, fulfill my crochet orders and work - I am a Financial Consultant and also helping my husband with his recruitment, and also spend time with my kids who are my top priority. Because of all these commitments, I stopped my Amigurumi Workshops for a good 6 months. 

I'm happy to be back to teach Amigurumi again, it is such a great hobby and I hope more people will pick it up. 

So this year had been really fun, I had travelled to Huahin (we brought Jewel), Bangkok (a yearly thing), Sydney, Tokyo (with both the kids) and I'll be going to Moscow in July. I also started to create my own doll designs. They may not be as exciting as Tokidoki's designs (which I LOVE), but I am really happy and proud of my own achievment. At the end of the day, crochet is my hobby and passion and I am so glad that I am able to create new designs and also teach. It will not earn me alot of money, but it is something I love to do daily and can't live without. I also started employing a part time helper, who really relieved me alot on the heavy chores.

Moving forward, I hope that I can be more efficient in everything that I do, and also have more energy (which I really lack) to enjoy all the things I want to and need to do. I would like to come up with more doll and bag designs, and to finally publish my own crochet book within the next 2 years! 

Very thankful for the love and support of my friends, and followers of my creations. Hope more of you will begin to crochet and love it!
