First drawing workshop

Today i accomplished one of the items on my to-do list: conduct a drawing workshop. Kawaii Manga Drawing Workshop For Kids was what i called it. I had 8 (+1) participants between the ages of 6 to 12 years old (+ a 4 year old who was assisted by his brother).

What is “kawaii manga”, you ask? They are super cute drawings with big head and a smaller body…just like these:

These are postcards i gaveaway to 3 lucky Instagram followers.

I am so glad the kids enjoyed themselves (see their drawings below) and they love their personalized folders (as seen in the pix above). One of them even asked, “Next week have some more, right?” Unfortunately, I can’t do another session next week. Maybe next year i will have a few sessions instead of just a one off workshop.

Crimson the Black Bat

There was a Mystery CAL in October but i wasn’t able to follow through due to a busy schedule. I am so happy to be able to finish it today.

Meet Crimson the Black Bat. He was part of Dr. Hookenstein’s plan to take over the world on Halloween. But look at how cute Crimson turned out! He loves flying around in the night (& sometimes in the day too).

Yen is home!!!

Remember Yen, my travelling owl? She’s finally reached home. Her adventures took about 8 months to complete.

image

I love the little butterfly that seemed to be stuck to her head. I also love the hand-dyed small silk pillow that she received at a wedding she attended.

I wonder if i’ll be sending her off to another adventure. Maybe not too soon. She must be tired from all that flying. ;)

October is here

It’s already the 4th of October here in sunny island Singapore (though i shouldn’t use sunny at the moment coz the sky is overcast and it was raining this morning). It’s also the 1st weekend in October. And i must say that it is a good start to the weekend.

I went to the post office just now (after the rain stopped) to collect two parcels. Wootz!!! I love getting mail (and i’m not talking about bills and flyers), don’t you?

image

One is a Freshstitches kit club package and another is the swap package from LaChapa on Ravelry.

The swap was called Super Ami Smash Bros and we were supposed to send any geeky/nerdy stuffs according to our partner’s inner nerd. I absolutely live the stuffs she sent over. Here’s a pix of everything:

image

Guess who the amis are…no. sorry…no prizes for getting the right answers. =p
They are Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall!!! I absolutely love Dumbledore. Especially since he is wearing his blue robe (which is my fav colour).

image

I also love the card that comes with it. Reminds me of the scene where Harry had to chase the Winged Keys to get to the philosopher’s stone.
Here’s another thing i absolutely love love love:

image

Thanks a million, LaChapa! I absolutely love my package. It great having you as a swap partner.

Now on to the next package…my kit club package comes with the yarn, eyes and pattern to make Gordon the flamingo. I don’t have this pattern yet and am eager to make him (especially since Stacey included a rattle insert in the package)!

It’s a long weekend with a public holiday (Eid ul Adha) on Monday. Yay!!! To all muslim readers out there, have a blessed Eid. If you are doing korban, may it be accepted. For everyone else, enjoy October & thank you for reading! ;)

The Craft Club yarnbombing final update

It’s a month since the yarnbombing event happened. I didn’t realize so much time has passed till i went to the Craft Club facebook page. I hardly surf facebook these days. Work has been crazy! But i digress.

The items i sent over arrived at their destination on time. Here are the photos taken by the Craft Club:

image

The pumpkin teddy got lotsa pix taken:

image

Look at all the teddy friends she’s seated with on that wooden swing. The rest of the items didn’t get prominent photoshoot but i kinda spotted them among all the items on display. Here are the hedgehog, one of the owls and pseudo-ami mushroom:

image

It’s really exciting to see photos of them with so many crochet items. And yes! They managed to break the Guiness World Records! Woohoo!

First upcycled dress

I know this is not a crochet or knit project. But i just have to share it with you. I finally got around to upcycling an old tee that i really love but has holes in it. I’ve been thinking about upcycling it (coz i can’t bear to throw it away) but haven’t found the time or inspiration.

I finally got it finished today. Took me about 4 days to finish this project. It’s not perfect but i like how it turned out. Ooops! Sorry! I haven’t shown you any pix.

image

What do you think? If you have suggestions on how i can improve the design, leave a comment ya!

Next upcycling project: a pair of shoes that’s peeling. ;)

Happy Teachers’ Day

It’s Teachers’ Day today in Singapore. Most teachers are given the day off. Enjoy the day, dear teachers, away from the students and other teacher related matters (yes! You should put away those markings…at least for today).

We (me n some of my colleagues) played a game of bowling in the morning. Then we had lunch at Streats hong kong cafe. Although we had more gutter balls than strikes (Well most of us anyway. There were 2 who were pretty good), it was fun cheering for each other.

After that i went for a circuit sticker maker workshop. It was an amazing experience! There were only 4 of us. The youngest was a 7 yr old boy. I’ll just let the photos do the talking.
