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 →

Decisions, Decisions: DIY Die

You know those times when you want to make something but you're not sure WHAT exactly? Or when you do your spring cleaning and you suddenly realize how much raw materials you have (card stock, beads, ribbons, etc.)? And you're like, "How the hell did I acquire so much stuff?" Yeah, you know what I'm... Continue Reading →

Captain Banana: From Postcard to Soft Toy

The Adorable Boyfriend got me a Monkey Design "cloth postcard" from his recent trip to Taiwan. For those of you who haven't heard of this before (like me), a cloth postcard looks like an ordinary postcard. You cut out the pieces and MAKE it. *craftgasm* (stuffing sold separately) Step 1: Peel off the piece of... Continue Reading →

4th of July Deconstructed Shirt

I took up pole dancing a few months ago as an alternative form of exercise. And this week is Performance Week, when we invite our friends and/or significant other (or others, depending on how you roll) and show them what we've learned the past seven weeks. Family members are invited too... but don't you think... 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!

Frame your own artwork / magazine clipping / ANYTHING!

Anything flat, that is. Let's change things up a bit and make something quick and easy. Materials: - A picture frame (obviously has to be bigger than your artwork) - A sheet of paper / card stock, the same size as the frame. You can use the one that goes with the frame, if it... Continue Reading →

90-Unit Sonobe Ball Assembly

Step 1: Make 90 sonobe modules.(Click here to learn how to make a sonobe module.) Use a thicker type of paper to get better results. No strict... Continue Reading →

Make a Soma Cube Out of Sonobe Modules

A soma cube is a puzzle made out of seven different shapes and must be assembled to form a 3 x 3 x 3 cube. To make a soma cube out of sonobe modules, you will need 122 units. Yes, 122. (Click here to learn how to make a sonobe module.)  The Seven Pieces (they don't... Continue Reading →

Singapore Cuisine-Themed 12-Unit Sonobe Ball

Oh wow. Talk about long overdue! It's been a crazy busy couple of weeks but I'll make up for it with some origami lovin'. As a kid, my parents would always try and engage my siblings and I to do something artsy. They would get us modeling compounds, drawing and coloring sets, but my most favorite... Continue Reading →

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 →

How to Preserve Roses

A little late to the party, but here goes. Like the adorable guy that he is, The Boyfriend gave me a bouquet of roses for Valentines Day. I know I will always remember the way he stood at the train station in his black shirt, waiting for me with the bouquet in hand. But a... Continue Reading →

Something Old to Something New

Too many old shirts and not enough dough to go on a shopping spree? Sounds familiar. Update your wardrobe without having to shell out. Transform old clothing by adding embellishments, cutting sleeves, sewing on beads and patches, or silkscreen your own designs!   To make cut-off tank tops, literally cut off the sleeves and the...
