Happy New Year!

Friday, December 31, 2010


Here's Tilda bringing in the New Year.

I just had to stop what I was doing and colour up this image. I thought it was very appropriate for the occasion. I am only half an hour away from midnight on this New Year's Eve. Yes, I am spending a quite evening at home...LOL.

I would like first to thank each and everyone of you who visited my blog--now and in the past...even if only once, hee hee. I've had so much fun sharing my work with you--it's been a blast. Hope to continue doing so--I'm planning on it...LOL.

Happy New Year to you all! Hope 2011 will be a fabulous one. Be happy! Be healthy!



I thought it would be fun to take a look through the sold items of the ACJ crew and see what we've sold over the last year. It really was fun to do and I hope you enjoy it, too!

Have a Super New Year!

Happy New Year 2011


Happy New year 2011 to everyone. Wish everyone will achieve what they target for 2010 and a prosperous year in 2011. How about your 2010 new year resolution? Do you achieve it? One of my last year resolution is try to collect Malaysia gold coin. At first, I thought it will be hard to find any of the old coins and add it in my collection. I still can find cheap Malaysia gold commemorative with idea from few friends who has been in gold collecting for a very long time. Another one of my last year resolution is to collect more Straits Settlements paper money. I think this year, almost half of my collection budget go to Straits Settlements paper money.

Last year, when I go to Amcorp Mall Flea Market, I already saw young kids buying notes and coins for a collections. Most of them buying a cheap notes but its a good start. At least 2010 I can see youngster involved in this hobby of kings. Nowadays, its not cheap for young kids to start this hobby. Many of them prefer stamp collecting as a hobby because it is cheaper. While most of kids these days prefer playing with their portable electronic games.

For 2010, I also saw many Malaysia coin and Banknotes blogger start their new blog. I will try to update my Malaysia coin blog list later. I also saw some Singaporean blogger start to commenting in my blog. Thanks for the visit and comment to all my reader. Here is some of the blogs who are frequent commentator in this blog:
  1. A Fistful of Ringgit
  2. coinandbanknotes.blogspot
  3. why collect
  4. umihoney
  5. Sumandak Kinabalu
  6. mgmsabrinumismatik
  7. akucintamimi.blogspot
Sorry If i don't comment back in everyone blog. Please comment in this post if you think I missed any of my frequent commentator. Some of bloggers asked me if I can teach you on how to blog. Maybe we can arrange a meeting one day and I will help you. If you're interested just email me your phone number, we will set the time and place later.

To anyone who are still new in my blog. This blog already had over 550 articles with over 200 of them written by me. Most of the other article come from News website. All of my article basely about Malaysia coin and currency or numismatic news in Malaysia. You need to type what you're searching for in this blog search button since browsing this blog by month views will take you more time to find what you're looking for. Like what I always tell everyone, I am not an expert, just a collector like you who like to share what I know.

What do I looking for in 2011? I think 2011 target will be more on my personal life rather then my collections. As you can see in the recent months, I don't have time to write my article because I am busy with my personal life and works. I also had many unfinished article for 2010, maybe will try to publish them in 2011. Don't worry, even if I am busy, I will still try to keep this blog keep on going for another year.

Happy New Year 2011!

Top Projects of 2010


What a year! I was bit hard this year by the decorating bug.  I found more uses for my hot glue gun than ever before.

And with that said... here is a look back at some of my favorite creative projects from 2010. I am linking up with Southern Hospitality and The Lettered Cottage for this post.

Repainting/Redecorating our Home!
I actually blogged about the next few projects on my family blog. But this was a huge project! We had the entire house repainted. We got rid of all our red and yellow for tan, white, black and pops of turquoise.





Wing Back Chairs
We found this gorgeous pair on Craigslist. A trip to the fabric store and a good upholsterer turned them into statement pieces.

Cooking: Cake Balls and the Best Peach Cobbler Ever!!!
These are recipes that I found online. Over the past year they have become my 'specialties' :)
Super Bowl Party
Last year's game was big for us. My hubby is a die-hard Saints fan. So since we couldn't actually go to the game, we threw a great party. I even made my girls some cute shirts.

My Craft Room
Turning our guest room into a work space for me is probably my favorite project. It is amazing to have a space of my own. I love having everything organized!

The Chair Re-Cover
I spent months looking for just the 'right chair' for my desk. Finally, one appeared at a local antique mall. She just needed a little love.

The Vintage Cowgirl Party
Our sweet Maisy Lou turned one year old! So we celebrated with a big party. Lots of blue, florals, bunting, and pink cowgirl boots.

Rosette Headbands 
I started making these posh hair accessories this year too. I love them! Kinda vintage shabby chic.

Tutu Dresses
Oh how I love tulle! And this costume that I made for my little girl turned into lots of orders for tutu dresses- tinker belle dresses, pumpkin dresses, and flower girl dresses too.

The Mermaid Party
I can't take credit for this one- except for the headband :) But a friend/customer of mine threw an amazing party for her little girl. The details of this party are worth visiting again.

A White and Burlap Christmas
So it is all still hanging, but my Christmas decor this year was so fun to make. Since we had redecorated this year, all of my Christmas goodies needed to be re-done too. I started working on this in November...

What's in store for 2011? Follow me and find out!
