Lanterns

Had a short getaway after our wedding in Hoi An, where the old town is lined with lanterns – we thought we’d make one to bring home!

Gold wedding rings

I’ve made rings before, and I knew right from then that I wanted to make my own wedding ring. I wasn’t sure if there were places in Singapore that offered such workshops, and was super thankful to come across Fat Anvil Studios!

Wooden table

I have been following Tombalek for a number of years, since I came across a wooden chair workshop they had. Now that I have my own place, and they came up with a table workshop, I thought it was a perfect time for me to sign up for the workshop.

Embroidery

I’ve unofficially tried to embroider stuff before, but only basic things like words (and doing it based on logic, without any instructions, so I didn’t know cool stitches). I was delighted to find a complete starter kit on Hoffelt & Hooper Co. while browsing Etsy for random DIY ideas. Even more amazing was that I could customize text on the design! I thought it would be a great project that could be used for my upcoming wedding 🙂 Continue reading “Embroidery”

Fallen Trees Resin + Wood Jewellery

I fell in love with Amado Gudek’s Fallen Trees jewellery collection when I first saw it in 2016, and I got a pair of earrings for myself back then. I remembered asking if there was a workshop where I could learn to make them, but Elaine, the founder of the brand said she didn’t have one at that moment. A few years on, she started Resin Play, and I joined a workshop to make Resin Seascape jewellery. To my excitement, she recently organized a class to make Fallen Trees jewellery ❤

Thank goodness my dexterity and eyesight were reasonably still in place, and we pulled through to finish this musical globe kit. Continue reading “Ferris wheel musical globe”

Butter and Ice Cream

During our roadtrip around Hokkaido, it was only fitting that we spend some time with the famous Hokkaido cows and related products – we found the Watanabetaiken Experience Farm where we got to try just that!

Shiroi Koibito Cookies

During my time in Sapporo, Japan, we visited the 白い恋人 / Shiroi Koibito Park (one of the most well-loved snacks from Japan), and my partner booked us a short cookie-making workshop as a surprise! We couldn’t make the actual famous Shiroi Koibito cookies, but well, any cookies are better than no cookies 😉
