Our guest for today is PC of MeiJo's Joy. PC is creating success from Penang, Malaysia.

[Janelle]: It's great to have you here PC! Please tell us something about yourself and your blog.
[PC]: I married Mr. Amazingly Understanding in year 2000.  He is my first love, we met each others on our final year in university.  We was just graduated, jobless and broke when we get married.  Anyway, we still insist to go to Sydney for Honeymoon…well, two newly wed backpackers we were.

I begin my SAHM life two years ago after resigned from my 10 years job as a QA Manager in a manufacturing plant in Penang, Malaysia.  I was a teacher before joining the corporate world. After being a SAHM…I am quite lonely…the only people I ever contact are some ex-colleagues through FB and the vege ladies in the wet market.  I don’t have soul mate anymore.  So, after join into the blogging team, I earn so many soul mates and friends who appreciate what I do, sharing the same interest…and I love to see comments from readers!

My blog is about my new life and direction to adjust myself in as SAHM.  I like to share about ways, things, tips for moms to enjoy life even though in low budget and busy routines. I started blogging in February 2011. My girls are the reason I stay at home. They are always in my mind and they are the inspiration for my blog so I named the blog after them.

Can you tell us a little about your part of the world?
Paradise of shopping (cheap), Food (So many variety), Weather - Summer all year long.... the only thing...some times it can get tooooo hooot.... ;(.  And the dust :P [Janelle: I can totally relate about the dust... it's like that here too!]

What do you create?
I create just about anything that can bring more joy and convenient to my home, my family and friends.  I love to create things that involved recycle, upcycle and repurposed.
Why do you create?
To give a new life to something which other may thought it is worthless or boring.  And hopefully the creation may inspired those who see it, able to see that their life can be just as fulfilling and fun if they inject in some creativity and judge things differently.

Do you sell your creations? If so, how? Where? And is it profitable?
No, not selling at the moment but already allow me to earn so many friends, laughter and joy.

What mistakes have you made or lessons you have learned in your crafting?
Perfection need patience...I always forget that and lost my patience...can't wait to share with friends in blog land.

What, to you is success? Have you achieved it yet, or are you on your way towards success?
After resigned from my previous job as a QA Manager, my current target is to be a calm and cool mom and an understanding wife...a simple goal but yet to achieve, still have a lot to learn especially from my kids. 

So what's next?
Let's craft and share more love.
Thank you for joining us here today PC! I had fun getting to know more about you. If you want to see more of PC's projects, head on over to her corner at Meijo's Joy.
