a moment of happiness

I'm very happy and excited to share that my linen goods are now available at casualpoet 隨意詩人 - an arts and cultural concept store. I was so thrilled when R gave me the link to her online shop. If you have not heard of casualpoet, you must check them out now. The products they're stocking are right up my alley - from home goods, stationery, records, books and zines and they are stocking a lot more! I went to place my goods in the store yesterday, coincidently it was also their official opening day. Casualpoet shop is located at 273B New Bridge Road, 3rd floor of an old shophouse. It is a small and cosy shop (and a mini-cafe) stocked with beautiful natural looking goods by designers, artists, publishers and record companies from all over the world. I was reading the Lines & Shapes book and I think it is really cool. I will be placing more new stuff at casualpoet shop over time, just love going back there, for more inspirations and hopefully less shopping!



love how they displayed the goods

looking more complete with the new labels. :)

Singapore Science Centre

Two weeks ago, we headed to the Science Centre together with a long time girlfriend and her son. Big Missy is going to be 4 officially and we have, in the last 5 months, entered the "Why?" phase. Lots of questions being asked when we were there.

There are lots of interesting interactive exhibits going on but most of the exhibits might be too difficult for young children to grasp. Instead, they will definitely love the outdoor exhibits Water Works!


'imagine yourself here' - cute wall illustrations on 'why water is important?' Big Missy was seated on the red chair.


Big Missy loves watching science fiction movies. It must be under the influence of the hubby. As an avid Science fiction fan, he often plays old DVD titles: Aliens Vs. Predator, Star Wars, Harry Potter & Jurassic Park for Big Missy. Can you imagine how excited she was when she saw the 'dinosaurs' at the exhibit?

Happy Fathers' Day!

Happy Fathers' Day to all you Dads out there! We had an absolutely crazy family time at Sentosa today but the weather was scorchingly hot there! The most enjoyable time we had was at the Luge and Skyride. Of course L and myself had much fun reminiscing old times, chatting about how we used to visit the island before the kids came along. The last time we visited the island was 7 years ago!

I'm off to sort out the hundreds of pictures taken today, will post them here soon.

A really quick post to share some of my WIP pictures!

I made lots and lots of pencil cases, I think I did about 25 (I broke my sewing record). These are all waiting to be stamped!

New designs for the pins that I'm loving right now - texts, birds, tree...

More pictures over here. I'm happy to share some great news coming end June! Now, back to scrapbooking!

simply sewing pleasure

I haven't been so productive for a long time. I have put aside my sewing and scrapbooking for quite a while to spend more quality time with my family, bringing the girls for some outdoor activities, plus other commitments. And now I am back on track. Let's do some maths. I have sewn 15 pencil cases, 10 passport covers. 6 photo album covers, still making lots & lots of linen pins and other WIP. Since I'm in a crafty mood right now, I will also be making more tote bags and quilts! Kind of miss quilting actually. I am going to work on smaller size quilts though - baby, doll quilts or stroller blankies? We'll see. I also hope to squeeze sometime to make baby gifts for a couple of girlfriends who are giving birth real soon!

I made this quilt last year and I'm still lovin' these prints


On a scrapbooking note, I like the new SEI - Poppy! Love how the colors are looking so bright, spring & summery

I have got some requests for customized linen photo album covers. So being crafty me at the moment, I made a few more for the shop.
