Grow your Blog Party & Giveaway

Hello friends and readers,

Thank you for stopping by either by chance or via Grow your blog. Firstly, I thank Vicki from 2 Bags full for organizing this and letting us have a chance to blog hop to all the crafty and beautiful blogs out there. (I’m at #235) Apparently there are 500+ blogs who has signed up and well there’s really lots of blog hopping to be done :D.

To all new friends, let me give a small introduction of this blog.
My name is Angela and I stay in the smallest country in the world, located at the South-East Asia~ Singapore. We are about 710km square in size.

Yup.. that’s me!

I love traveling, crafting and reading. I had the opportunity to visit some beautiful places in the world and I like the feeling of getting lost in some where out there. I love the 4 seasons especially Autumn and being in the Tropics, I love the sea, sun and sand too.

I started out this blog about 1 year ago (though I’ve back dated some posts to 2012). Initially, I wanted to joint down the time I spent in UK, like making a small dairy. Then I thought, I should leave that, cos it had been the most beautiful memories I had of living outside my comfort zone, in a foreign land all by myself.

So the crafty journey begins and I had fun sharing crafty ideas and doing crafty things. In this blog, you will find happiness in many crafty things like cross-stitching, knitting and crochet. Since this is a new blog, I’m still exploring what’s out there for me too. I must say, over time, I grew more confident about my writing style and I’ve learnt from other bloggers on how to categorized my blog post too.

This year, I’ve started out
Mailbox Monday , where you can follow me on my mail and craft exchanges. I love sending and
receiving mails so I have dedicated some time to this too. Is fun to spread love around the world don’t you agree?

I’m also embarking on a Granny Square a day Project.
You can read more about it here.

A short snippets on my other crafty projects includes embroidery and some crafty exchanges where you can find it more here and here.
