Usher the Chinese New Year

In fact we have started to do the spring cleaning during the Christmas and New Year weekends.
My husband and me reorganized the children wardrobe, the children toy cabinet, the children book cabinet, the store room and our own wardrobe. We packed some old clothes, old toys and old books to giveaway to the environmental recycling department.
Last weekend, I also spared some time to DIY the CNY decor which was shared by Merryn over here.
I also got new clothes and new bags for my two princesses. The pink colour sling bag which May was carrying is the new bag to the keep Ang Bao.
None of the thing that I needed to buy to make this Hello Kitty Ang Bao Wheel of Fortune. All the things were found in the house.

11 days to go, what have you done so far to usher the year of Dragon. I have yet to go for a hair cut, I have yet to achieve my ideal weight, I have yet to bake buy any cookies, I have yet to buy CNY gifts for the elderly, I have yet to wrap the Ang Bao, I have yet to buy enough makeup and clothes, I have yet to buy a pair of shoes, I have yet to DIY enough CNY decor and I have yet to............

    I am partially done... but I think minimalist is the theme for me this year. :) Don't want to waste so much on the clothes or decor stuffs. Since we always go shopping whole year long..
