Love is not complicated.

Its origin so pure and light and simple

Our wish for you, our dear friend, is for the seed of love to bloom afresh. Everyday.

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 etsy.com 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!

| 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!

Yesterday marked the last weekend for us at the Public Garden Christmas Market at TripleOne Somerset.

And a BIG Thank You to everyone who came down and helped us in ways big and small!


Every minute was exciting, be it seeing how customers interacted with our products or meeting like-minded and talented creatives who simply blew us away with their humility. And kudos to the Public Garden team for nurturing a market with such good vibes.

And it was such fun planning hijinks with a good friend pling. Truly appreciate all the love and feedback, we have learnt lots!


It’s a great start to our roadshow experience, and perhaps you’ll see more of us in the new year.

Quiet cosy alone-time curled up on the couch with an egg-nog and furry pals or full-on par-tehs with feather boas and well, egg-nog (of a different kind!), Happy holidays everyone!

Am having sudden attraction (or rather, a renewed one) to ethnic designs and drawings.
Had so much fun putting shapes together and forming new shapes – exhilarating!
