What’s On The Cracked Counter-top?

We would love to thank a lovely soul

petrel41Dear Kitty. Some blog

for this lovely award nomination.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

If you are interested to know animals, peace and war, science, social justice, women’s issues, arts, and much more.

Do give this lovely blog a visit.


Also, we’ve received the same award nomination from another lovely soul

Samantha Han @ Bonding Tool


If you are a food lover, do give her lovely blog a visit and she does post non-food related articles too and they are fun to read as well!!


As a matter of fact, Sam‘s award nomination is meant for Clouds N Cups, Share With Us, but I hope she wouldn’t mind since this award post is dedicated to her and of course, Petrel41 as well because it is via reading their posts regularly that made me decided to do this post, which is about animal and food.

As you know, Friday is always a challenging day for me because I need to cook my own lunch. Since I am not good at cooking, I would normally take instant noodles or simply the leftover oatmeal from breakfast for my lunch.

Last Friday, it was another instant meal but it required a little more ‘skill’ than cooking instant noodles and this is also the first time I am juggling with a camera and spatula while cooking…LOL….

Here’s how the story goes:

My Friday Lunches 1

My Friday Lunches 2

My Friday Lunches 3

My Friday Lunches 4

My Friday Lunches 5

My Friday Lunches 6

My Friday Lunches 7

My Friday Lunches 8

Now, now…you may be asking,

“Okay, we’ve seen enough food, where’s the animal?” 

Here’s a picture about my red-neck turtle:

Once again, a big big thank you to the two lovely souls,  petrel41 and Sam Han for this lovely award nomination!

Have a great day ahead, always~ 😀

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

How Much Good? How Much Joy? (Part 2)

Do you lovely souls out there still remember the fairy bookmark in one of our previous post – How Much Good? How Much Joy?

Now, here’s another post about that poor little fairy and we now present you with, her little ‘sister’:

CNC-LN014 - A FAIRY TALE REBORNNo longer a bookmark, but the pendant of a double layer long necklace.

OverlookI have to agree with Picasso.

3 necklaces were being’dissected’ in order to create this new one. 

Now let us have a closer look at the modifications done:


Pendant was painted black in order to match the necklace and AB colour crystals were embedded to the wings


Are you able to see 2 fimo slices and 3 AB colour crystals inside the transparent blob?


I regretted almost immediately after I applied the silver glitter to the background because the glitters has stolen the attention away from the center-piece design of this pendant!


Joy is not in things; it is in us. ~ Richard Wagner

Fairy Tale RebornWithout all those kind encouragements from many sweet and lovely souls out there when we first posted the fairy bookmark, there won’t be this necklace.

In order to share the joy of our first creation(s), we are prepared to give away the necklace and bookmark in our next ‘Let’s Play’ contest in our Clouds N Cups, Share With Us blog, i.e. provided you lovely souls wouldn’t mind accepting these ‘reborn’ fairy items.

Hopefully, I am able have the contest up by today, so till then do have a great day ahead!

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It…

It has been quite a while since I last updated this blog and our last post was actually a re-blog (which is worth sharing) on 18th Feb 2013.

Well, just wanting to share with you lovely souls some events about our nail art decor, which is supposedly to be one of the intentions of this blog, but I guess we’ve been off the track a little…LOL…but never mind, I am still enjoying all these and I hope you do as well.

First thing first, if you’re interested in a give-away event, do cast a vote at our give-away indicator poll…83 more votes to go…. 😀

In January, we’ve received some orders from our online store which is listed in Qoo10.com.sg and we felt really excited when one lovely lady decided to try out our nail art decor instead of the Nail Patch.

It is always nice to know that some people out there are willing to give us a chance in the midst of this competitive business. 

We are glad that the lovely soul is happy with our product and service. The comment that she has left us really gave us the motivation to want to continue in moving towards this direction for our nail art fimo/decor even though it means more works are needed to be done in the future.

Like what Napoleon Hill  quoted: 

“Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.”

As we are in the midst of revamping all our jewelry accessories display photos (this would explain the drastically decrease in the products for our jewelry accessories section), we’ve decided to re-vamp our fimo/nail art decor display photo as well.

If you’re also following our other blog – Clouds N Cups, Share With Us – you should have already seen the new display format for our jewelry accessories.

As for our nail art decor/fimo, I’ve decided to go on another approach by emphasizing on our selling point — Our Individual Packing For Each Item and we would like to share with you our latest display format (a general one) for our nail art decor:

Other Nail Art Decor (E6D54A)

We do hope with a better look of what you are going to pay for;

you may feel assured of you will be getting.

Do pay us a visit at Clouds N Cups and let us have a chance to be at your service.

Till then,

Have a great week ahead!

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

I will take this opportunity to practice my patience, persistence and together with a little perspiration while blogging near the window during sunny afternoons…


The day will arrive…eventually.

See? Now, that’s a positive attitude…LOL…In the meantime, I would like to share with you lovely souls 3 duck songs and perhaps you can take this opportunity to test your patience while watching the following video.

Without further adieu, let’s see who can survive watching all these three videos then.

Hope you all enjoy the above videos!

Have a great weekend ahead!

Till then,

Nail Art Practising, Santa’s Style~ Part 1

CNC Nail Art 13 - More Santa

As I’ve mentioned before, I NEED MORE PRACTICE~ and so here I am trying to polish my nail art skill with  more nail polishes…lol…hmm…did you get the joke??

Uhmm…I hope you do…

Okay, as you can see from the above picture, after doing the chubby Santa on my thumb nail, I decided to continue with another 2 more nails using different colours.

Why not all 5 nails you may ask?

The answer is simple, I became lazy…waiting for the NAIL POLISH TO DRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY~ 😦

In order to have more practices, I’ve decided to use the nail wheel so that I can do other stuff while waiting for the polish to dry.

CNC Wheel Nail Art

Inspired by the Chubby Santa design, the basic idea is to have the inner shirt, the outer coat and the belt therefore I’ve painted the inner shirt and the outer coat for all the 18 nails using different colours.

I will then enhance the designs as accordingly using other polish colours or nail art decors. A belt (with different design) will be added in order to keep the style in this wheel uniform.

From the above picture, you can see that I’ve already done 2 nails with the white inner shirt and pink & blue glitter outer coats. The white polish surface is still very cakey but I decided to finish using it before buying new one.

Let’s have a closer look with the following two pictures:

CNC Wheel Nail Art - 1A

For the first design, I’ve used the pink glitter polish as the outer coat. I have used the golden micro bead as the gold buttons of the shirt and our clear colour 3D acrylic ribbon nail art decor as the big belt buckle.

CNC Wheel Nail Art - 1B

For the second design, you can see that the blue glitter outer coat is a longer one. I’ve outlined the side of the coat with another blue nail polish.

At the top part, we’ve used our rounded green rhinestones (dark green for the core and light green for the petals) as the flower pendant of a choker. The belt is a 2-colour belt slanting down to the side of the hip but I am not too satisfied with the belt because the buckle is not very visible (shall improve in this).

And so this conclude Part 1 of my Nail Art Practising, Santa Style.

Hope you all enjoy reading this post.

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~
