Today is Day 4 of the kids school holidays. So far they have made a trip to the trampoline park, played with friends at play dates, followed me around for deliveries to see how Mommy works hard, and today, practising their creativity with Decopatch. We first learnt of Decopatch whilst we were in Paris visiting our dear friend’s home. She had the loveliest piece of furniture and when we asked where she got such an attractive, vibrant piece, she introduced us to Decopatch!
She even brought us to the mall in Paris where they sold Decopatch. EXPENSIVE!!!!! But what the heck. We were on holiday and it is beautiful after all….
One of my lovely friends, Syn Nee, gave us her old photo screen to use when I mentioned I was looking for a screen to hide the kids MESS and because it had a chip on it, we decided to revive the entire screen to a colourful burst of fun!
Decopatch is essentially lovely colourful thin decorated paper that you glue onto furniture or anything that you wish. It comes with a special glue for different surfaces and really brings stuff to live. We are a colourful, happy family so it is only apt that our stuff reflect us.
They come in strips of colourful paper costing about 3 EUROS per sheet, the size if probably A3 and then you buy the special glue which is I cannot remember how much, maybe 15-20 EUROS. I remember it was quite expensive so I only bought ONE bottle as it was our first time trying it out. They wanted to buy the whole store but I said try first!!! And luckily I did, because you see, we are such a busy little family that it has taken us 10 months to finally open the damn thing up. LOL!
We also bought some paraphernalia made out of plaster of Paris for T2 to try her hand at Decopatching.
As T1 wanted to be completely in charge of the photo screen. Hahaha. Let’s see what she comes up with and what the final product turns out to be. I am really looking forward to this new piece of furniture in my living room space.
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
