Happy Merdeka :)

Selamat Hari Merdeka to all Malaysians! 54 years since we obtained freedom, it's been a journey :) There's still so much to achieve for my beloved Malaysia. You are capable of so much more! Your people are capable of so much more!!!

Believe in Change :) Do not stay comfortable in our uncomfortable situations and whine... Do something! :)

Happy National Day! :)

Markets @ Jaya One

Angelicquirk will be participating at this Saturday's Markets @ Jaya One. What is Markets @ Jaya One?

Well, it's a combination of 3 awesome markets, namely Chic Pop, Crafty and Bettr Weekend! :) You'll be able to get your fashion and vintage, handmade items and organic produce fix all at one location. How cool is that?

All you have to do is head down to Jaya One THIS Saturday from 11am-6pm to soak in the atmosphere and bring back some goodies or two! It's going to be AWESOME!

Angelicquirk is going to be at Booth 14. You'll be able to see us near the water feature where Old Town and Nando's are. I am a little bit hidden at the corner but do come and say, 'HI'. I will really appreciate it!

Can you spot where No. 14 is? That's where I'll be at the G/B1 floor :)

And this is the entire layout for you to better see where the Crafty people are!

What better way to spend the weekend? See you there!!!

Making a mess

Do you like making a mess? haha.. maybe kids love it, but not adults, huh? Well, you guess wrong!

Cards-a-making : making a mess

Making a mess can be fun! Especially if you're creating art! Art is very subjective and I don't think anyone is 'not talented' or 'good enough' to do art. What you think is creative may not be so in another person's eyes and vice versa. Besides, art is a good outlet to relieve stress... well, to some of us, at least! :D

I would say I have loved art since a very young age. My mum tells me I draw and colour from very young... I think about 4-5 years old? I remember some of my drawings, actually.. but they have all since gone missing! Oh well, start again! :)

Kettle Stitching Workshop

For me, there's no better way to spend a Saturday morning than with a bunch of crafty souls who gathered together to learn the ancient art of bookbinding together :) 

I had the honour to coach a group of lovely ladies (& a guy *hugs*) on how to bind journals using the kettle-stitching technique. I also shared with them on the brief history of bookbinding, the origination of Kettle Stitching and Coptic Stitching and the differences.

It was a fun time spent with them and sharing with them my passion for bookbinding. I personally find bookbinding and crafting (be it scrapbooking, mini albums, card making, etc... ) very therapeutic. I guess there's a difference working with our hands and seeing something come to fruition after spending time on it. The feeling is indescribable. 

I love how the students were very keen to ask questions and I love sharing tips with them on how to do certain steps based on my experiences on what I've gone through :) 

I am very blessed to have had a mentor who has great passion in bookbinding and I aspire to be even more generous in sharing my knowledge and passion for bookbinding to my students. 

I will hold your hand in this bookbinding journey and share with you things I've learned from my own journey and hope your journey will always be smoother than mine :)

Workshop here!

I will be conducting my bookbinding workshop tomorrow and was buzzing around like a busy bee the past week gathering supplies and thinking of how to make the environment for cozy and pleasant for my participants :)

I really do hope the girls (& guy) participating tomorrow will have fun while learning bookbinding :) It is very therapeutic for me to sit down and sew journals and I hope they will love it too :) 

Will update more after class tomorrow :) Hugs & lotsa love... have a happy weekend!
