And the wait continues.....as "Life.twinkles."

These days I have a lot of time at hand so hence the blog posts are becoming frequent. Since workwise things are taking shape its a mixture of feelings. AlhamduLillah! The wait is still on. Still waiting for my supplies to reach. It usually take 2 weeks to get hold of supplies coming into Pakistan from anywhere else so yeah its a crazy wait when you don't know what your product will turn out to be. However till now things have been going smooth. ALLAH Kareem has been specially kind and watching over me step by step. Cannot be thankful enough.

So as I wait I have been busy at home with a guest living at our place so AlhamduLillah to that as well. Guests are a blessing from ALLAH Kareem. As its said that when He is happy with someone He sends in guests. So its MashaALLAH great. Plus everyone who comes over to your place brings something with them (uuhhh no not materialistically) Every person brings something with him or her that teaches you something. At some point in your heart and mind they will change something. If the guest is a happy guest and a low maintenance one they will teach you something and if the guest is a not so much of a happy camper he or she will still teach you something. So its all good. We've been lucky though this way. *smiles*

So yeah tomorrow life returns to its old routine. The guest shall leave. However this does not mean work wise nothing has been happening. Take a peak.

Work in process for the newbie line WHICH you can see now has a name. A shout out to my star..... Tooba Arifeen! She coined the name. Thank you so much! Also a logo has come up too which you can see on your right hand side.  Tooba gets a freebie from the new line.

I have no idea if what I have ordered will work here as some times weather conditions can mess up results. However I am leaving it all to ALLAH Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. If He makes it work then He has written this in my fate. If He makes my try a flop then too AlhamduLillah for He knows what I do not know. I could be thinking of it as something fab but maybe its not good for me. So hence either way I hold still as I walk towards the roller coaster to jump in for phase two of handmade.fabulous.fancified....... "Life.twinkles."

So what comes next?

Blog post! Yes a blog post. Been ages since the last one because I had nothing to write. As I sit here writing up this post its post 1 pm and its the blessed day of Jummah. The day which feels like its filled with Noor. I seriously find it so much more calm as opposed to many other days. AlhamduLillah!

Its been a while since I have been away from creating anything new. A long hiatus. Been in hiding for some time work wise but not totally moved to being non existent. Those who do not know I was and still am the girl behind "Smiling.under.the.blue.sky." (
https://www.facebook.com/smilingunderthebluesky), my second home on Facebook. Initially started as a Tumblr page last Ramadan to help me out with a not so even phase in life and later on it moved on to becoming a page on Facebook. Its a part of me that stays with me irrespective of if I'm working or not because this page is dedicated to my Deen and that shall Insha'ALLAH always be my strength. Ameen!

So now what's coming next? What is all the hype about on my handmade.fabulous.fancified. page? Yeah been getting guesses from you guys but its something I can't announce right now. Why? No its not really an advertising stunt but in fact the only reason why I am not disclosing what the newbie line is cause I still do not know how the initial pieces will turn out to be.

Its a new technique that I want to work on and Insha'ALLAH if things go according to plan then I might really have something pretty to work on.

So basically right now the status of the newbie line is:

-Ordered supplies from abroad.
-Awaiting the supplies as they still haven't reached here.
-Stocking up on the basics that I need once the supplies reach.
-Working on designs that I shall need.

So once the supplies reach then it will take about a week or less to process the pretties and then Insha'ALLAH you guys will get to see what it has been all about. I just need major duas that once the supplies arrive they work the way I want them to work. Trying out new techniques has a 50 percent chance of creating something awesome AND a 50 percent chance of .....well........(let's not think of that).....

Nervousness, excitement, jitters and butterflies have all found a new home. Me!

P.S you guys can win a freebie! One lucky soul gets to grab a free customized something from my newbie line Insha'ALLAH by telling me what to name my new page which we can call home for the newbie line. Here is the link where you can give in your entries and you might just win. (https://www.facebook.com/handmade.fabulous.fancified/posts/343531442381390)

Lots of duas from me to all of you. Fee Amanillah!
