[i've been pubbed!]

Heh heh.. nothing like seeing my name in print! :) So happy to be pubbed in these books / mag:
The 1st is a much awaited one - Paper trends..... It's a minibook i completed some time ago:

The next is our page in the SUPERGARDEN book for the Venice Biennale 2008. We contributed an object in Singapore's Pavilion and this is our writeup in the accompanying book :) (portrait photo by superhyperreal)
I haven't done a product review before, but as soon as i started using this punch, i knew i just had to share my experience with it!
It's the Fiskars Circle Border punch.
The review - it's a GREAT versatile machine, comes in 2 circle sizes - 6" diameter and 4" diameter. The 1st diameter is good for punching out 6" circles out of cardstock, while the smaller one's just the right size for 4R pictures! I love the easy punching with the big handle - it's a bit stiff at first, but gets much easier with each use! And the effect is really great.... I'll definately get a few more of varying patterns to use!

Here's an LO completed with G - she's very into rubons, so i let her have the remnants of the last packet of BG wholy cow. Here you can see that she's been thinking abt what to rubon, and where to do them. When she was younger, i used to have to hold onto the rubon and also cut out specifically the shape to rubon (otherwise the whole rubon sheet will be transferred!). Now, she very dexterous with the rubon tool, she's able to isolate really small rubons - like the branches and flowers, and all by herself too!
o and i love that she's also started to contribute to the journalling spots! Here's her signing off portion.
Circle punched K's picture. I adhered pp onto the Kaiser chipboard album - i love love love this album! I've also bought the "ME" book, can't wait to get started on them!
Here are the rest of the unfinished pages - pps are scenic route and october afternoon.
Some pictures of the girls:
K just loves being in the action - here's her trying to reach for her jie jie's markers
she doesn't quite know what to do with them, but look at the way she's started to mimic G holding the pencil.
Here's her trying to scribble something onto the paper
And her favorite activity now - matching shapes - if you give her 2 pencils, 2 tubs or 2 of anything of a similar shape - she does this - try to match them up with each other!
Lastly, a little card i made to accompany a stack of pics of K to my parents. :)
