How to make fake embroidered patches

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear? My childhood trauma of never being able to buy shoes back home- I had huge feet that they didn’t stock sizes for (and had to shop overseas)- is making me overcompensate by being a total shoe fiend now.

Top Tuesday: 10 best statement jewelry

To post or not to post. That is the question. I once read that Pete Cashmore posted up to 6 times a day when he first started Mashable. So obviously I had to 1 up him and post SEVEN times when I rebooted Hapiness, Wherever. Of course, that didn’t last 😛 It dwindled, but posting… Read more »

Top Tuesday: Best Spray Paint DIYs

I think spray paint is an amazing addition to the cupboard of any DIY-er/ crafter. It really gives a piece more oomph and makes it look more upmarket. And it’s so versatile! Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to get it if you only have 1 project to make so I thought a list of 3… Read more »

  • 3 ingredient, 3 minute spicy, creamy pasta

    I recently had an epiphany. Even though I don’t think of myself as a foodie- unlike fellow Singaporeans, I would never queue up for more than 15 minutes for food, for example- and don’t particularly think of myself as an avid baker or cook, I spend hours every day looking at food recipes!! So I guess, maybe… Read more »

  • Meet Ruth, Blogger of the Year at the Herald Fashion Awards

    You know how bloggers always say the best thing about being a blogger is the community? To be honest, I was always a little sceptical when I read comments like that – it sounded just like the PC  and “right” thing to say. I mean I’d met nice people blogging, but nothing out of the… Read more »

  • Meet Stacie Madden, who started independent community sewing festival in Brighton

    Working as a freelancer can be pretty isolating- you don’t have colleagues to hang out with, after work drinks… but the best part of being a crafter is the amazing and supportive creative community.
