art for grabs in colourful assembly

This has nothing to do with AFG but it was Miss Badges' birthday! Weeee! We wanted to surprise her with a cake and dinner post-bazaar but she ended up surprising us by running off to have dinner with her family. We're such awful strategist. 'Happy' didn't have an A candle as I used it prior... oops! 

*bisou* bonbon's been blessed with custom orders lately. This was something we whipped up for a blushing bride. It has a 'something old something new' theme  :)

This was my favourite *bisou* bonbon project. It was frantic running around the city looking for a suitable picnic basket and most of all to collect everything together but in the end everything turned out good. It was a custom order by the lady's colleagues. I called this the Zen Basket. I imagined her (the corporate lady that she was), taking an evening off to give herself a spa treatment by soaking in a lavender infused bath and inhaling the essential oil, letting it work its magic (cue body scrub followed by lip scrub, face loofah soap, hair spritzer and lip balm). After that she curls herself in her favourite nook in the house, sips on stout marshie hot cocoa and proceeds to read her favourite book (hopefully a bonkbuster!). Shall we all *sighhhh* together?

Art For Grabs is now one of my favourite indie bazaars. Being there makes me feel so proud of my craft. The creative comes alive and you see the artsy-fartsies come out to play, unashamed to profess their love for culture and most of all steadfastly supportive of fellow artists. Turns out, Malaysia does have a thriving art scene! Thank goodness for that!

Love thy neighbours. Never felt so strongly... it was a row of familiar faces. We all had such a ball!

My favourite Michelle's Artisan Fruit Jam flavour is Mango with Passion Fruit. What's yours?

Uncle Prawn of Moo Creative makes tres cute animal clay figurines. 

Fancy a personalized hand-stamped accessory from EmoEgo?

Miss Bubbles of The Bubble Lab makes aromatic glycerine soaps. Aren't her oil burners lovely?

Miss Notbook of Notbook-Notbuk makes fantastic notebooks and journals! The googly-eye pocket notebooks are just too cute!

It's an eclectic collection of handmade accessories and jewellery over at Bliss Wonderland.

This was my favourite stall that day! Karung Guni's a brainchild of this wonderful young mad Alex who lives to promote planting for the busy urban dweller. Sounds like moi, non? I've always wanted to grow something but I just don't know what or how to. Karung Guni makes planting easy.. Sunflowers? Passion fruit tree? Wheatgrass? You say nay.. he says hey!


Guerilla gardening.

Miss Pupur of Pupurin recently underwent a rebranding makeover and they now stock fabric for crafts along with DIY Pupumon plushies. Uber cute and I admire their heartfelt effort to encourage crafting in the community. 

Soon I can have homegrown wheatgrass shots!

I bought truckloadsa terrariums from Karung Guni. These 'real' terrariums put my faux Wonderrariums to shame. Tee hee!

*bisou* bonbon had an honour to make a custom order for a bridal shower party. The theme was floral. I had a vision for the table to be a garden of English roses and hydrangeas. Needless to say, they loved it!
