KBCC Nov 09

Matchbook Notes at KBCC
It was fun sharing with this crafting group KBCC how to make my version of a hand-stitched matchbook notebook. As always, the set of creations is impressively colourful and personalised.

And my modest samples were really rather plain.

Most importantly, we had a great Saturday afternoon together. (And the kueh pie tee for teabreak was yummy!)

No matter how many times he folded and refolded his sleeves, they just don't look balanced to him.

Southern Ridges Stroll

Nature Trail - Southern Ridges
We made an early start on a cloudy morning from Harbourfront MRT station for our walk on the Southern Ridges.

There were lovely flora and fauna as well as architectural beauty to take in along the way.

The two-hour walk ended with a hearty breakfast at nearby Alexnadra Village.

Awesome Dreams

Awesome Book Tour from Dallas Clayton on Vimeo.

Dallas Clayton is living his awesome dream having written an inspiring book and now making it possible for a child to get a book for every book he sells.

This reminds me of Toms Shoes' shoe for shoe.

What's your awesome dream?

A*Live Nov 09
We loved working with the textured base created with gesso and created quite a riot of colours and styles. This month, Peiling showed us how she works with gesso and very kindly prepared the base cards for us to work on.

There were some interesting ATCs and as always, we enjoy catching with each other and meeting new friends.

Simply Licensed

Feels great to be featured as a new member at Simply Licensed. Here's hoping that a licensee would find my artwork suitable. Now, wouldn't that be so exciting!
