March MAAD 2011 Post-Mortem

Hey folks!

How was your weekend? I had a rather quiet weekend. No, just kidding. As some of you may know, I was at red dot design museum hawking my bags. I had a rather nice time actually. Surprise? Yes, it's safe to read this post. It's whining-free.

My bag display
Check out the cool thingy I bought from Ikea to display my lunchtime pouches. My little pouches really clutter up the table - this is such a space saver.

Here's me on Saturday. I wore my threadless tee. p.s. i promise not to tilt my head the next time I have my pic taken.

Oooh, I had light. I discovered lights make my bags appear more attractive. p.s. i promise not to make the peace symbol the next time i have my pic taken.

Sales was better this month - a total of 9 bags and pouches. Not great, I know but remember February MAAD? So I'm grateful.

I have 1 pic of my cutomer. This is June with her new bag. I think you've met June before. Thank you June.

This was my little workshop. I spent my free time sewing sarubobos.

My girl kept me company on Sat afternoon. She soon grew bored so I let her take photos of my sarubobos.

She took lots but most were blurry. I like this one best. It shows a child's perspective.

I took lots of photos of my sarubobos too. I made a total of 7 sarubobos until I ran out of stuffing. Sarubobos are a great way to use up your fabric remnants. If you're the DIY kind of person, you might want to try out my tutorial to make a few sarubobos to call your own.

On Sunday - today, I learnt to make Crème brûlée from Chef Shun. It turned out to be rather fun.

Here's Chef Shun with his apparatus.

I whisked! Btw, this is my very first ever cooking lesson.

I torched!

I made Crème brûlée.

That's me about to dig in. It was gooood.

Hope your weekend was good too. See you all soon.

Nice pictures! Glad you had more sales than before, should be encouraging for the coming year. Good thing you had some hand sewing along, must have been relaxing to do that, too.

Nice display stand! I like your sarubobos, they are very cute! I tried to make some once and they dont look as cute as yours. I will try out your tutorial and give them another go.

I spent part of the weekend at a friends bbq and we spent the night flicking off locusts, crickets and moths. The worst part was when one tried to climb up the inside of my trouser leg. Since they are attracted to light, I guess the sun must shine out of my .....!
