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. I have an entire cupboard of… Read more »

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 »

Round-up: Best jewellery dish DIYs

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Begging notice: I only have 2 followers at the moment, so any new ones would be loved to death! Recently, I re-discovered my cheese obsession. Not the best choice when trying to lose weight. However, I did read that eating cheese and butter actually HELPS weight loss because they’re so… 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 »

  • Where to buy craft supplies in Norwich

    I’ve lived in the UK 7 years, and visited over 10 times, but somehow never visited Norfolk. When I saw how charming it looked (on Instagram, where else?!), of course I had to visit and, as crafter, of course I had to check out what it has to offer in terms of Arts & Crafts!… Read more »

  • Balenciaga earrings DIY

    My first thought on seeing these Balenciaga earrings (on Pinterest, where else?) was: OMG so totally DIY-able!! They’ll just take a minute to make! Well, they ended up taking me 4 months 😛 Not because they’re difficult, but because I don’t usually work with fabric and didn’t have any in store!   What you need… Read more »

  • Make your own pineapple charm!

    When I first thought my cousin how to use Instagram, her words were “I can see how  this can be a huge time waster.” (ever practical, my cousin) Given that I spend 80% of my (waking) time on Pinterest & Instagram, I sort of see what she means 😛 (Hey it’s for work!) Anyway, with all… Read more »

  • Summer time rhinestone bracelet DIY

    Are you affected by the weather? Growing up in sunny Singapore, this wasn’t a question I thought much about – apart from being grumpy when it was hazy, it’s pretty much either hot and humid or hot and rainy all year round in the tropics. I wasn’t even sure I believed in SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder… Read more »

  • Urban Makers East Pop-up at Fount London

    How often is too often? That’s a question that often stumps bloggers. Personally I find that posting more = more views but I’ve also heard some other bloggers say they don’t like visiting blogs which post every day as it’s a signal to them that the blogger isn’t spending enough quality time on each post….

  • Stella McCartney Suspended Red Drop Earrings DIY

    What do you think of Stella McCartney? I’ll be totally honest and say I used to think her fame was more due to her background than her talent. However, lately I’ve seen quite a lot of her designs that I really like, so I guess I was wrong. Nonetheless, I still find her brand way… Read more »

  • Meet Becci who built an Instagram community of over 12,000 in less than a year!

    I’ve never been much of a kawaii fan (the “cute” phenomenon which is seen a lot in Japan, Korea and Taiwan) but I fell in love with Ellbie Co‘s Neon Light DIY kits on first sight! (Becci, the founder of Ellbie Co, came to 1 of my Maker & Friends pop-ups to do a workshop… Read more »

  • Turn your old electronics into earrings without tools

    What do you do with your old electronics? I have a TON lying around but taps, old washing machines and hard drives all have parts that can be turned into jewelry! (Or the parts are also very cheap and available at most hardware stores) Here’s an example of how I used rubber washers- used to… Read more »
