Nothing beats our architecturally inspired and fistful big Parisian soaps designed @seemsoap based on vegetable ingredients. No, as pretty as they are, they are not too bad for the use, because each soap takes daily new interesting forms. Just try.

Pulling handles, I don't pull off the mug as my mugs are too thin and I suck at it 😂 I drape the handles over a rounded bit of timber till dry enough to move into a wet box or sealed container waiting for the mugs to be trimmed.

Ihr Lieben, zunächst einmal: Fühlt euch alle ganz lieb geherzelt und gedrückt <3 Ich hatte noch nie, wirklich noch nie einen solch erfolgreichen "Kleidungsbeitrag" wie den vom Sonntag, in welchem ich euch meine Lady Shiva gezeigt habe - so lieb danke dafür! Ich meine, ich nähe nicht für Likes, sondern für euch und uns, aber es ist schon schön, wenn alle "Arbeit"- vom Nähen übers Fotografieren, bis hin zum Verfassen eines Beitrags (das war die Kurzfassung) Anklang findet und damit auch Wertschätzung für all das, was Kleines Tragbares ausmacht <3 
Und nun zum heutigen Thema: Dass mir kleine Wegbegleiter so sehr am Herzen liegen, das wisst ihr ja. Hier nun darf ich euch eine ganz zarte und zugleich super praktische Wickeltasche Lulu von @zierstoff_einfach_naehen zeigen. Die liebe Ilka hatte mich angeschrieben und gefragt, ob ich nicht Lust hätte, etwas "zierstöffliches" in Szene zu setzen - und dieser wunderbare Flamingo-Baumwollstoff von Hilco war mir sofort aufgefallen. Die entstandene Wickeltasche mit Feuchttuchfach (es passen auch die Boxen für kleine Waschlappen rein) und einem geräumigen Fach für Stoff- oder Wegwerfwindeln hab ich ergänzt um ein Nuckiband. Und da ich momentan absolut auf Knöpfe stehe, hab ich für den Verschluss ein Knopfloch genäht. Druckknöpfe oder Klett sind auch möglich. So ist ein hübsch anzusehender Wegbegleiter durch die Wickelzeit entstanden. Schade, dass ich durch bin mit diesem Thema nach drei Kindern ;-) #taschenliebe #taschenähen #sewingbags #sewinglove #sewingproject #sewingpattern #sewbags #bagmaker #bagmaking #handmadewithlove #handmadebags #creativhappylife #bagslover #bagineer #windeltasche #wickeltasche #nähenistwiezaubernkönnen #designmaker #flamingos #projectbag #handcrafting #fabriclover #nähenistmeinyoga #sewingblogger

A very large giant Bluefin tail print from a 109” fish done in sumi ink on kozo paper for Jon @bigeyehunter who caught this fish completely alone. Luckily he had the coast guard spot him and they came over and helped him get it in the boat because his hauler quit working! I can’t wait to wet mount and frame this one up! Thanks for the support @admiraltymarineproducts 👍🏽

Ok for those who asked to see more of my home ( careful what you wish for 😴😴) My opinion on open shelves in a kitchen has totally turned on it's head. Dust collectors, kitchen grease, your wine glass, needing washing before use etc etc. I think the key is to have the things you use often 🍷😬 on open shelves and the other stuff, spiralizer, bread machine, to name only two, before their exit to the charity shop, in cupboards.  I have a lot of those sort of cupboards. I inherited the  love of gadgets from my father 🤔

Marcus whipped this up one weekend. He gets a lot of those weekend requests, mostly ignored from me.

Credits @valsparpaintuk. I love their paints, great coverage and not ridiculously priced

Milo wants everyone to know that I will be at the Arvada Arts and Ales festival this Saturday. If you’re local, get your tickets now, and come by and say “Hello” at booth #9, indoors for me, that way I’m not a sweaty mess when you see me! And of course, lots of my recent work will be available! *

What do you know about tidal energy? It’s a renewable electric energy source, actually one of the oldest used by humankind. The movement of tides runs through Earth’s magnetic field, generating electromagnetic signals that can be used for monitoring ocean climate changes 🌊🌊🌊

I’ve been building frames like a little elf over here. Trying to get as many pieces finished up for my first public sale at the Jammin’ Jensen Art Festival near Hutchinson Island, Florida. I’ll have two booths side by side for the last two Thursday evenings right before Christmas. Great little exhibit to get my feet wet. If you’re in the area please plan on dropping by and saying hello. It takes place in beautiful little spot downtown by the marinas, shops and restaurants from 6-9. 🙏🏽

特別鳴謝WorldSkills 2019世界技能大賽珠寶業的香港代表選手 @wing___long 出手為我完成這漂亮簡潔的小品。

他今天就要出發俄羅斯參加決賽了。😢雖然很遺憾我不能親身在他旁輔助翻譯幫忙打點,只好默默在這邊做團隊的幕後支援。

真希望細佬能以最佳狀態發揮,也深知比賽很需要運氣,所以盡力了剩下的事情就由天安排吧。無論結果如何,我都以你為榮!💪 。

Way back in May 2018 I'd almost finished this rook piece but managed to burn a hole in the moon as I gave it a final iron before framing.  Today I resurrected him and cut away the old background. I've given his feathers a trim, tinted the fabric a bit more and added lots of shimmering dark blue metallic stitching to his plumage. Now I need to make a new background for him.
Swipe to see the original piece and also a view of the back of the bird, which is far more interesting than the front view!! Many stitches 😊

Qns: Worldwide, 30-year-old men have spent 10 years in school, on average. How many years have women of the same age spent in school?
A: 9 years
B: 6 years
C: 3 years
•
Answer: A! (I picked B, but now I know better. I’m so glad primary education is compulsory in Singapore and that this is NOT AN EXCEPTION worldwide ☺️) “When women are educated, all kinds of wonderful things happen in societies. The workforce becomes diversified and able to make better decisions and solve more problems. Educated mothers decide to have fewer children and more children survive. More energy and time is invested in each child’s education. It’s a virtuous cycle of change.” - Factfulness, Hans Rosling (highly recommended read!)
•
I have very strong feelings about the place of women in the workforce, especially in construction and building. I’ve been to worksites where I’ve had to work for full days without access to a toilet with a door. I don’t feel particularly safe when I work too late alone.

On a bigger scale projects, decision-makers are always males. No one calls me by my name at work - I’m referred to as “小妹” (little girl) or “美女” (a commonly used term to address a woman here) - those that address me that way have the kindest of intentions so I don’t correct them, but it’s really telling - that I’m always a little girl in their eyes.

Things are bad, but they are getting better. It is the best feeling in the world that I have the freedom of choice to work in this industry! And I can decide which way I’d like my business to grow.

My grandmother never went to school and was illiterate; my mother had to fight to go to school and my grandparents couldn’t afford to pay for her school fees. She decided against studying engineering  because she thought she’d be taking away a potential spot in school and in the workforce from my uncle 🤦🏻‍♀️. Meanwhile, I’m here able to sweep up woodshavings for an hour BY CHOICE and daydream about new designs. 
Things are still bad but they are getting better! My family’s story is not unique. It isn’t even unique to Singapore! Progress is happening all over the world and it’s crucial that we continue contributing to building a better world :)

Die Tage werden schon wieder etwas kürzer, merkt ihr das auch? Ich mag diesen natürlichen Rhythmus und auch die Jahreszeiten sehr - nur geht das im Vergleich zu meiner Kindheit gefühlt sehr viel schneller. Wir hatten damals 8 Wochen Sommerferien - was für eine lange entspannte Zeit, im Freibad, mit Freunden. Und nun sind hier aktuell die 6 Wochen Ferien für die Mädchen fast schon wieder um. Und auch der Kleine kommt bald im Kindergarten in die große Gruppe... Wir hatten doch gerade erst Eingewöhnung...
Man muss, glaub ich, wirklich jeden Moment, den man bewusst wahrnehmen kann, genießen, aufsaugen, miterleben. Genau wie die Familie der kleinen Finja, die nun auch bald in ihr Abenteuer startet <3 Alles Liebe, kleine Maus <3

It’s been a busy few weeks in the ‘She Cave’: I’ve enjoyed experimenting with the stone setting and forging silver. Slowly building my collection of new pieces for @ealingbeat Art Trail in September @gunnersburyparkmuseum. Having a day off today to enjoy the lovely British summertime!😎

Mit dieser zarten Ying-Yang-Tasche möchte ich euch allen ein schönes Wochenende wünschen <3 
Was ich nie so wirklich fotografieren kann, euch aber schon interessiert, ist die Gestaltung des Innenraums. Mein Standardprogramm ist es in aller Regel, dass ich eine Reißverschlusstasche ins Innenfutter einnähe sowie Einsteckfächer. In diese oben nur mit einem Druckknopf verschlossene Tasche habe ich zusätzlich ein Handyfach und einen Karabiner für den Schlüssel eingenäht, sodass das lästige Herumsuchen in der Tasche entfällt - und das ist gerade für eine junge Mama, die meist nur eine Hand so halbwegs frei hat, eine praktische Sache <3 
Habt eine schöne Zeit, ihr Lieben!
