Life gets in the way....

...and a death.

Since my wedding day, so much has happened. I've moved to my marital home, Ahma passed on barely a month in, I fell pregnant, dad got diagnosed with prostate cancer, I gave birth via emergency C-section, baby is of today, 12 weeks old.

So much squeezed into a year. Barely any room for miniatures, except for the one collaboration with my husband.

The anniversary of Ahma's passing has just passed, we took bubbles to her memorial site. And I still miss her terribly. Dad had his prostate removed, and there were several complications that led to a few lengthy hospital stays, but he is home and recuperating. My pregnancy wasn't exactly difficult, given my medical history I couldn't be too careful, so I did my best. I'm relieved the both of us survived it relatively unscathed. But I'll leave that for my baby blog :)

So does this mean this miniatures blog has seen its last days? I hope not! Come 20th October, we will collect keys to where i will be setting up my long anticipated workshop (cum play space for bubbles)! So much catching up to do.

I haven't quite been up-to-date with all the miniature blogs, but now that I'm beginning to get the hang of this mothering thing, I look forward to all the lovely creations that I've missed this past year.

See you soon :)

  3. Hey Cindy, I just want you to know that you're in my prayers. I will be conducting an NLB series of workshops and you're gonna be the star highlight of one of my most pioneer inspirations in Miniature Clay Sculpting. Do know that God works in wonders, Death is only a new Beginning of a better light to come. Everything will be OK. Trust me on this.

    With all my love, Angel.
