Handmade mother’s day cards and gift tags {Fund-raiser for MINDS}

Some of you know I’m involved in a handmade for charity project.

We are raising funds for MINDS by selling handmade cards and tags.

Here is my latest batch of cards for mother’s day (coming up next month)!

These 6×6 cards come with white envelopes. I also have some gift / encouragement tags too. These are made using coasters and pretty paper, windmills and lotsa love. 😉

All these are going for $2.50 each (not inclusive of postage), which is a steal if you ask me. LOL.

Just leave me a comment or email me at mamawearpapashirt@gmail.com for orders.

Thanks for supporting our cause! 😀

A time to craft, a time to give

I had a lovely time crafting with some other crafty mamas last week.

It. Was. Therapeutic.

We were all so focused on learning new tricks from mama J, and one another, and checking out all her cool crafty toys!

Like a little craft party. Chatting and crafting.

I sometimes wonder why I carve out time to do this, like, don’t I have something else better to do (like run last-minute baby-related errands)?

But seriously, I can’t think of a more meaningful way to spend the days leading up to Christmas (or till the day I pop). And I thought Vera will also have fun chipping in in small ways, and she’s at a good age to be learning about giving and putting other people’s needs ahead of our own. 😉

Plus like I said…It. Is. Very. Therapeutic. And so it must be good for my body, soul and even baby.

Here is the first set of cards I have. They are priced at a set of 4 for $10. If you see something you like and want to place an order, you can leave a comment or email me at mamawearpapashirt @ gmail.com!

We’re also calling out for donation of scrap materials so if you wish to contribute to this project, please get in touch too.

All proceeds will go to a local charitable organisation to help children with special educational needs. (The name is under wraps at the moment, as we are still applying for the relevant permits.)

In the coming days/weeks, I will be uploading more card designs onto the Facebook page, so stay tuned.

Here are the other mamas involved in this project. Do look out for updates on their blogs too in the coming weeks.


Do we need a reason to give? Is it only during Christmas that we start to share our blessings around? Not really…The only reason is love. Love without boundaries.

Thank you for supporting this cause! And please spread the word and love around. 🙂

UPDATED: Check out new designs for mother’s day here!

PS. Special thanks goes to Claudia from The Loving Mum who contributed the craft materials.

A shoot to remember

It was a lovely Sunday morning at the Botanic Gardens.

We had an appointment with Steph Tan and friends for a family shoot, as part of her annual Pass It On charity photoshoot project.

All of us were in pretty good spirits, except for little JJ who’d just had a major meltdown before leaving the house.

Here’s Vera looking all gung-ho and JJ looking all grumps.

So we had lovely shots of Vera.

Try as hard as we (and Steph) could, we could barely squeeze out a smile from our sour-as-a-lemon boy.

So he ended up looking cool and aloof. Well, when he wasn’t whining that is…


But that’s life.

Whenever we’re planning something fun and exciting, something unexpected could always fall from the sky.

And we just have to make the best out of it.

Thankfully, Vera was all smiles.

As for JJ…glum despite holding his favourite fruit.

Still, it was a day to remember.

The shoot only took 30-40 minutes.

But kudos to Steph and team who managed to capture such precious beautiful memories for us.

My hubby said we should probably do it again next year…

After all, it’s for a good cause.

It’s good fun.

Plus it’ll be our first photoshoot as a family of five.

And who knows, maybe JJ will be the one playing little Mr Sunshine. 😉


Have a good weekend, friends.
