We had our first pop up shop in Singapore at The Little Dröm Store and it was such a lovely experience. We showcased our handcrafted ceramic pots, Tenugui, zines and new items such as our clutch bags and Polkaros Poms! Thank you Singapore for all your support♥︎ Here are some pictures of how it turned out!
Above you’ll see our new Polkaros Poms, carefully handcrafted by Singaporean PomPom maker Melly. I will do a proper blog post about them soon!
I had fun decorating the glass window with the help of two very talented girls – Melly and Joycelyn! Thank you so much for staying back to help!
Last but not least, a big THANK YOU to the lovely Dröm keepers Antoinette and Stanely for making this happen. They have so much love for their products and work so well together as a team. It was such a pleasure working with them! Looking forward to future collaborations!
The pop up shop will be on till the end of November 2014. Do check if out if you are in Singapore! The ceramic pots are sold out but other items are still available.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of giving a lecture to 160 freshmen at Joshibi University of Art and Design. It’s always nerve-racking speaking in front of an audience of this size, especially in a foreign language! But it’s all worthwhile when students come up to ask questions about the lecture. It really shows the level of interest they have for the subject and the path they are about to pursue. I am so excited for them!
Was greeted with a small poster promoting my lecture at the corridor when I arrived at the university.
Oh, just in case you are wondering, everyone called me ‘rossy’ when I was studying at Joshibi so that’s the name I use whenever I am back!

There is a new handmade magazine in Japan called ‘Tukutte‘ which means ‘make it!’ in Japanese. We are happy to be featured in their July issue with a 4 page mt masking tape spread. I’ve been a fan of mt masking tapes for many years so when the editor asked if I could do a mt tape spread for them, I was more than happy. This is how it turned out!
This issue is filled with lots of handmade projects complete with patterns and instructions! If you love making things with your hands and exploring different crafts, you would love this magazine! You can get a copy here. (Sorry, the site is currently in Japanese only!)
Here are some pictures taken during the photo shoot.
