Ahhh! Home at last!!!

9 Oct

It feels so good to be home! Just came back from a three-day work weekend in Hong Kong, which was a load of fun combined with a load of work (on the Big Project) too! We brought the kids with us; while hubby went around taking care of the Toys R Us trips and the five mouths to feed, I was busy walking with my 4 friends (the Main Man, the layout artist, a co-publisher/friend, and his brother/soon-to-be-part-of-our-other-projects friend) all over Hong Kong. Well, actually we walked and took the metro and a cab to get from the Kowloon side of Hong Kong to the Hong Kong side, where we had to search for the specific place we needed to do our work in (not very easy to locate when the signs on the buildings are not always in characters we normally see in daily life :D).

I don’t think I ever walked so much in my life. And in such sweltering heat. I don’t know if this is accurate; after all, I live only an hour and a half away from this country, but it was just so freaking hot walking in the streets that the blast of the airconditioning systems of nearby stores with open doors truly felt like oases in a long and winding desert!

This is the last phase of the Big Project. Still doing some last minute work, back here at home (Murphy’s Law: Just when you think it’s all done, there’s more)… but the end is near in sight, with the launch of the Big Project scheduled for the end of November. Wow, can’t wait for that time! It is so exciting! This is something that’s been 19 years in the making, so to see it come to fruition finally is really a much-awaited event! More about this soon, when the coast is clear to remove the tape from my mouth! 😆

So anyway, since I was gone for 3 days (spent either imbibing more caffeine, or feverishly working on the Big Project, or yawning), I was not able to connect to my playground or to my regular haunts (sob!) So I know there’s a lot of catching up to do. That’s the one thing that I hate about traveling: it always steals so much of my regular routines that it takes me forever to play catch-up when I get back. But the trips are always fun, so that’s fine. 😀

I finally have the last piece/set of Pinky Promise up… so sorry for the delay (if you haven’t forgiven me yet, read the entire post above again and again till you feel the stress and rush and hectic pace of my 3-day-work-week last week… which by the way just ended late last night as our flight was delayed by a good 8 hours. Which may have been a good thing as it allowed me to go to Toys R Us with my kiddos and let them indulge in those coin-treat machines, which my kids and I are total suckers for. Hahaha). With luck on my side, you may start to feel empathetic or, even better 😉 sympathetic, and forgive me for being absent for a few days! 😀

So without further ado, here is the latest (and last set) of the Pinky Promise kit.

LivEdesigns PinkyPromise Set6 preview

There are 2 textured, striped papers with inked edges… plus an alpha (all lowercase letters only with a few basic punctuation marks)–if you’ll notice, it’s exactly the same as the first Pinky Promise alpha I released, except for the style. The first one was chipboard and grungy; this one is cleaner and has a metal-carved look. I hope you find some use for it. I also threw in a tag as well, because I wanted to experiment using a brush that I made with more than a few days’ worth of blood, sweat, and tears. Hahaha. Hope you like it. Download it here. Zip password is pinkdrawer

ETA: Sorry, download link is no longer available.

Please note: drop shadows and the safety pin were added only for preview purposes. The set doesn’t come with them. J Also, Pooja, if you’re reading this, your request is next on my to-do list of mini-kits! And Deb, I’ve already taken some photos of the kids’ teddy bears… now I just have to think of what to do with them. LOL!!!

Good day, everyone! I’m off to doing more work again! Till next! Stay happy!!! And thanks for dropping by!

    Hong Kong? Here I was thinking that you were sitting at home with your feet up, enjoying a cup of java. You are amazing and to finally see 19 years of dreaming almost complete makes it all worthwhle. Thank you for these beautiful, Pinky-Promise creations. I feel the “Liv” withdrawal finally leaving me too. Love you.

    WOW! I LOVE the striped paper. Thank you so very much from the bottom of heart! In my life, I’m not use to asking for things and actually getting them. You have made me VERY happy. Thanks GF!

    I agree with Joan (yawn) … I need a nap too! How do you do it all? I guess if it has been a 19 year dream then you must be seriously running on adrenaline!!!! I know when I am doing a major event (i.e. last days before Christmas or some kind of party or shower or a family wedding) I can work some pretty crazy hours for days on end but then I TOTALLY crash for days on end. Please take care of yourself. Even though I have been going through excruciating “Liv” withdrawal for the last few days, I want you to take as much time as you need to rest and catch up on some much needed sleep. Love you bunches and loads!!!!
