I am sooo excited to share this news with you. Remember last year i sent over some amis and flowers to The Craft Club for their yarnbombing event at Little Havens hospice? (Here’s last year’s blog post to refresh your memory) Well… they made an announcement some time last week to say that we made it into the Guinness Book of World Records!!! Woohoo! Isn’t that just exciting?
Another exciting news is that 10 of my drawings will be part of the Pameran Poskad SG50, happening this weekend! I signed up rather late for it and i wasn’t even sure what to submit when i sent in my application. ^_^; I’m glad everything worked out fine. Here are the 10 postcard sized drawings that i submitted:
My Little Tudung’s Travel series postcards. Hand drawn and coloured, personally packed and tagged by yours truly. =D But wait…
… as Little Tudung mentioned here, there’s something at the back.
Mini boats, planes and cars! Kawaii, ne? 😉 I do hope people like them enough to bring them home (at a small fee).
For those of you in Singapore, the exhibition will be held at Gillman Barracks Blk 7 #01-13 Lock Road on 20th to 22nd Nov 2015 (opening night is on 19th Nov 2015, 6 – 9pm), 12noon to 7pm. Admission is free! Do pop by and see the various artwork by 502 artists from 29 countries.
As you already know, i have also sent some amis to Resobox, NY, as part of the World Amigurumi Exhibit happening from 11th Dec 2015 to 28th Feb 2016 (opening reception is on 11th Dec 2015, 7 – 9pm). Admission is also free. So if you are in the Big Apple, maybe you could pop down to Resobox and check out the amis from various countries.
I haven’t shown you the whole gang that’s going to be part of the exhibit. So here they are:
I’ll do a run through of each group. First up, we have the merimals and Beary the bear in merlion costume:
The merlion is a legendary/mythical creature that is said to have protected Singapore. So this is my special piece for the exhibit.
Here we have the Wawa dolls. Eco-conscious dolls that were part of This is Our Home exhibition earlier this year at the National Library of Singapore. Unlike the usual amis that are stuffed with polyester stuffings (aka Hobbyfill), these dolls are stuffed with strips of plastic bags in an effort to reduce waste and save the Earth. One of them is even made from plarn!
Next up, are the mini planes. Cute little airplanes ready to sore the sky (held by little hands)!
Last but not least, we have Lalula and Oranji Monster.
They managed to fit into a medium postage box. According to the post tracker, they have been shipped to the US. I do hope that they reach Resobox at the end of this week (latest by next week).
That’s it for now. It’s quite a lengthy post and i thank you for reading it. Till next time, take care everyone!
