The best things in life are free: InDesign workshop by IDUG.sg

Earlier this week, I stumbled upon this event on Peatix: InDesign Hacks and Variable Data. Since I had nothing else going on and it was free (!), I decided to sign up. A week later I find myself in a meeting room in Fuji Xerox Towers filled with Adobe enthusiasts of all ages and professions. It was about... Continue Reading →

So I attended a screen printing workshop

To my two readers who are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth, no, I’m still here. So I recently got married (yay!), which is another reason why I was on hiatus. I actually got my laptop fixed weeks after I announced my craft break (burnt a hole in my pocket in... Continue Reading →

Themed Gift Box

The Adorable Boyfriend and I recently celebrated our second anniversary. One of the things that I like about him is that we share a knack for making stuff. Any occasion that entails gift-giving e.g. Christmas/birthdays, almost always involves something handmade (see photo collage I made for his birthday). In the past, he has given me a jigsaw...

Stumbled upon this interesting sculpture outside Sungei Wang. Innovative use of Q-tips, plastic spoons and cups. Not exactly sure what it is though...

Big Ideas at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire

A little late to the party, but hey, better late than never. So last week I was at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire, the city-state's second year to host a Maker Faire. I didn't get to attend the first one as I only heard about it after the event finished (fail). From what I've read,... Continue Reading →

Keep Your Cassettes!

Can't part with your old cassette tapes? Keep the music alive and slap them on to a frame around a mirror or your favorite band poster!

High Five for Henna!

Adorable Boyfriend and I went to Little India for our first anniversary. And just for the heck of it, I had an elaborate henna tattoo done on my right hand. The young lady who drew it was really talented! Quick yet steady. Image on the lower left was taken right after she finished. It took... Continue Reading →

Adobe Creative Cloud Launch

Adding some "luck" factor to this blog, I received an invite to attend the Adobe Create Now Tour in Singapore. On 26th March, hundreds of designers, photographers, videographers, basically those in the creative industries / roles, gathered at the Ritz Carlton-Millenia Grand Ballroom for the launch of Adobe Creative Cloud. The half-day event kicked off... Continue Reading →
