Workspace Wednesday - decorated upcycled plastic container



So I've recently started taking some collagen powder supplement which comes in this rather large plastic container (just a 30 day supply). Since I will probably collect a few of these in the next few months, I decided that I would decorate them to store some of my art supples.

It was so much fun rotating the container and decorating each "section" with bits and bobs from my stash.


Since I can't do much about the colour of the cover (spray-painting it with a different colour seems like way too much work..*LOL*), I decided to just pick colours that went with it....


Added a cute bunny...


That went with the sentiment...


I really love how this turned out!

A page from the gratitude journal - Home Saigon


 


Last year I had to start trying out new restaurants whenever I travelled because some old faves did not survive the Covid lockdowns and travel bans. Among them was Home Saigon aptly named because it is actually a residential house that they turned into a restaurant...and the food was really great. Portions were huge though...so we brought back the leftovers for the hotel staff at the lounge to enjoy. :)

Papa Yam's birthday 2024


 


This year we had a simple celebration for Papa Yam's birthday. Home-cooked lunch and a store-bought cake.


He really likes this mango cake...can you tell from his face? *LOL*


Then we went out for Thai food for dinner. :)


Not quite sure about this layout. Had this patterned paper for a while and was never really inspired to use it. I tried repeating some elements like the sticker and the washi tape and the brads to provide a little cohesiveness across the photos. 


I love that it is quite different from my usual style but I still managed to incorporate fun elements. :)


Happy week ahead friends!

Eye drawings in a new sketchbook


 


So this girl started another eye drawing sketchbook...*winks*


What can I say? I just find eye drawing extremely therapeutic...*LOL*


I have gone for a whole new set of reference photos so that I can practise different eye angles and play with different colour combos.


Challenging myself to get a little more depth in my drawings on days that I have a little more time...





And maybe work on the eyebrow game..that needs major improvements.


And just have fun doing something I enjoy.

Happy weekend friends! :)

The one about dad's new bag


 


So dad got a new Coach bag....and was really excited about taking it out to town for a spin. *winks*


As always, I brought the folks out for dinner, shopping and a Sephora event.:)


Yes...I actually did some stamping! *LOL*



Pretty happy that I got to use up strips of scraps...


Hope you are having a great week so far!

The one about the salty tau sar piah


 


I really enjoy treats like this salty Loong Fatt tau sar piah (traditional Chinese pastry made with mung bean paste)...perfect with a hot cup of tea. The salt helps to temper down the sweetness and just makes it more yummy. There are many variations of this pastry but this is the only store that makes it the way I like it. Parking is a tad challenging so I only eat it like once a year. *LOL*

Thursday's trolley of blooms


 


Earlier this week, I went to Far East Flora - a local wholesaler of fresh blooms - and got this lovely bunch of mini roses...soooooo pretty!


Which were placed in 7 different vessels so that I could enjoy my blooms everywhere at home....meet my trolley of blooms! :)

Hope you are having a lovely Thursday!

Adventures in mixed media - my first painted dessert


 


I've been really getting back into mixed media the past two weeks...playing with watercolours, coloured pencils and white acrylic marker. Decided that I would attempt a variety of different things..girls, dog, bird and now my first painted dessert! :)

I really enjoy this coffee and cheese flan with fresh fruits that get to savour when I dine at Vietnam House in Ho Chi Minh City.:)

Happy weekend friends!
