Sponsored Post: Kokoru Craft Party

We had a free craft party sponsored by Kokoru last Saturday at The Office in Chinatown. We partnered with Crafty Singapore and invited team members and people we’ve met online to join the event.
Camee represented Olgrin and Kokoru. She was there to help us with the event. It was nice to chat and catch up with old friends and finally meet some people we’ve met online in person.
Two hours seems like such a short time for crafting and having refreshments. I didn’t manage to make a papercraft since we we so busy going around and assisting the participants. We provided some templates for the designs I made a few months ago but I need to refine them more.

These are some of the Kokoru papercrafts made during the craft party.

We’d also like to thank Sally for bringing cupcakes.

Thanks to Photosaurus Studio for the pictures. If you would like to make your own creations, Kokoru products can be purchased at Evergreen outlets throughout Singapore.

MAAD November 2011

MAAD stands for Market for Artists and Designers and this event is usually held every first Friday of the month. With the revamped MAAD format, the event is held at night and there are performances held at the same time. If you haven’t been to MAAD before, it is definitely worth the visit.

Suitcase Display Case

Sellers at this event are friendly and they can event give you a lot of product information for a piece that you are interested in. We met some new folks are reconnected with old ones. We were fortunate enough to be at the same spot as our friends Yen from Yen Paintings and Joyce from Chic Noir. Other friends,  Sylvia from Bon Chat and Corine from Cloud9to5 got spots at the inside. I didn’t have time to take a photo of Joyce’s booth as there were always customer’s there when I wanted to take a shot.

Yen's Paintings and Photograph Prints

Yen made a cool sketch of our booth. She did it so quickly and I do love it. We were talking with her and Joyce the whole night long that I almost forgot about the humid weather outside. Great company made the experience so much fun.

Lovely bags, cards and shirts from Sylvia of Bon Chat

Corine's from Crochet Pouches made from high quality merino wool

Here are a few of our favorite shops at MAAD:

Illustrations from Wu Yanrong

Handmade Rubber Stamps from DROOL

Cute Notebooks with Smart Slogans from Epigram Books

Couldn’t resist and bought the pink one that says “I’m not sensitive. I’m in touch with my feelings.” I was told by one of the ladies from Epigram books that this notebook used to be a corporate gift for Clients and they were so popular that they decided to sell them. Cool idea. 

Handmade Books from Osanpo Craft

Guide to Singapore from alter:sg

We bought this book when we were at Public Garden. It was nice to see Christine and gang at MAAD.  Get this book if you’d like an independent guide about Singapore.
