31 Jul

photoWe started out from a small corner of the room. And the corner’s still there, just a lot messier and it has taken over the three other corners. But we are still thankful for the encouragement we have had from our customers, old stalwart friends and newfound ones.

From to our blog, and now our own shopping site . We have gone through piles of materials, discarded even more and had series succeed and failed.

We are small and quiet. But we like things big, funny and bold.

But most importantly, we are blessed to be able to do this in the first place. Every day, every minute in gratitude. Here’s to staying strong in thankfulness.

Thank you for traveling this journey with us. It has only just begun!

10 Jul


We have appeared at a couple of Public Garden markets, and hopefully more.

We are at Mondays Off in Haji Lane. And we so love it there!

But now it’s about time we have a place to call our own, even if it’s only in cyberspace. 

We’re slowing working on a simple webstore where you can purchase your shupg product straightaway. 

Come 31 July 2014, we’ll have our own space at And we would so love have you visit. 

Do come by and stay and walk around our new home, won’t you? 😀

We’re ecstatic to be spending this hot hot summer at the very cool Mondays Off at Haji Lane

They’ll be carrying our line of wooden block and triangular necklaces which we have come to love and we hope you will too. 

We are also planning something for 31 July 🙂 Keep your eyes peeled! 

| Imaginary Friends not so imaginary |

20 May

I’ve had the privilege to make a badge for a friend recently to promote her latest book, Imaginary Friends. And I finally got down to reading her book just a couple of days ago (though the e-book was out quite some time ago. Thanks for the signed copy, Mel!).

So happy to see her doing what she loves, and having fun and managing her family life with her profession at the same time. It probably took quite a bit of juggling, but like most creatives out there, it’s one step at a time.

Imaginary Friends

Love that it’s such a digestible book which are fables, not fairytales, so even though there isn’t always a happy ending, there’s a lesson to be learned. In fact, I found myself using all my self-control to NOT skip right to the end to see what the moral of the story was!

Having known Mel since our uni days, it’s not only refreshing to be able to hear her voice in every story, but also to get a glimpse of the journey she has taken through the years after, even though we were not always in constant contact. No doubt her quiet, keen observation of situations and people around her, coupled with her experiences and growth have helped her make each character so clear, and funny.

2 characters I particularly loved were:

  • Chucky the Calico Cat. This reminded me a little of a Roald Dahl short story.  Wise advice there. (Read the book if you want to the see the moral of the story!)
  • Nelly the Nice Necklace :p A good reminder that there’s always 2 side to a coin. Or maybe if you find a coin that doesn’t, don’t flip it ;p


So if you’d like a good rainy afternoon bus-ride read (I finished mine getting from Ang Mo Kio to Orchard on the bus with rain pouring down outside!), get a physical copy at Books Actually, Books Kinokuniya or MPH Bookstores.

Looking forward to her next book!
