Alhamdulillah.....

It's been a while since I last blogged here......a lot has happened in the past few weeks....been about 5 weeks now I think....wow...that's a long time. A lot of good things and bad things that happened. There were times when I was so depressed that I just didn't want to talk to anyone. But I am blessed to have good friends who gave me a lot of support....and I also got a lot of support from family and everyone I know too. So it's been really great to get some words of encouragement.....as that is what I use to keep me going through tough times. Thank you all.....it means a lot to me.... :)

Alhamdulillah, I am slowly recovering....been following closely to the advice from my doctor and also been going on a strict healthy diet. So, slowly but surely I am positive about getting better. I just can't wait to get back to work again. I am also in the midst of preparing for the big move....I have decided on moving to Alor Setar to live with my Mom there. So far, everything has been going smoothly with the preparations. Am doing some final packing and then all will be moved back there by end of July :) .

I am also happy that today an article about me came out in Utusan Malaysia......Alhamdulillah....this is one of the best thing that happened to me since I got sick. It also has given me some hope and motivation to continue doing what I love in life. I know that I must never giving up hope, never feel negative about myself and to appreciate what God has given me all these years. You can view the article HERE at my personal blog.

I am hoping that I will be able to start resuming back to work in middle of August. I have a lot to do once I head back to Alor Setar....a lot of stuff to unpack and rearrange in the new place. Gosh I hope there is enough space for all of my stuff there......there are just so many things!!! arrgghhh! Whatever it is, I only have about less than 2 weeks to settle down there....and then start taking orders and start working again. I have to remember not to over work otherwise I'll get sick.....wouldn't want that to happen again right??? ......all work and no rest will make Lin a sick and dull person hehehehe......Wish me luck guys...wish me good health too....I sure do need both of them real bad hehehe.... ;)
Alhamdulillah.....SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

assalamualaikum...kak. i'm fadhilah..saya terbaca ttg aktiviti akak dlm paper. act, sya pun ula berjinak2 buat kad...tp kad biasa je la...hnya utk tanda ingatan hari lahir kawan2 rapat. bila terbaca ttg kerjaya akak, sya jadi teruja. Tambahan pula bila bc biodata kak, kak ternyta peminat ranc martha stewart n rachel ray. sya juga peminat kedua2 selebrti ini. kalo xsilap, minggu lepas, saya tnton martha stewart di ntv7, dlm slot kraftangan, mereka tunjukkan kad pop up yang klasik dan sudah berabad. it was so cool and awesome stuff...hope u can continue dis amazing job and.

Hi Lin,

I clicked on your blog today when it was returned as the 1st result in google for Handmade Cards. I make cards too and i must say this, you're really creative. Your work is wonderful. This post of yours is very sad...Whatever is that you're going through, I wish you all the best. May God always be by your side and hold you through this tough time. Hang in there....Embrace yourself...
