"Penguin Books is a publisher founded in 1935 by Sir Allen Lane. Penguin revolutionised publishing in the 1930s through its high quality, inexpensive paperbacks, sold through Woolworths and other high street stores for sixpence. Penguin's success demonstrated that large audiences existed for serious books. Penguin Books is now the flagship imprint of the worldwide Penguin Group and is owned by Pearson PLC."

I love Penguin Classics; book range, bag range, cup range, notebook range and any other range with that iconic orange and creme strip. The simplicitiy of the book design, once placed on something else gives that object such a calm, beautiful and serene quality. Also makes it quite desirable for myself. Ho hum, how I wish everything was Penguin covered!
The pictures above was taken when we borrowed this lovely, original penguin book from our friend Thu. Thu is so kind and caring (and probably doesn't know until now, we took pictures with her book!) If you ever need a book, go to Thu and she can recommend one in a second!

Hello friends, haven't managed to do a 'keep crafty' post for a while! So decided to share this one with you!Seems lately, we've been making ALOT of 18th birthday cards. The great thing about making personalised cards is the orginiality and sentimental-ness of it.
This card was made for our lovely friend Luke, he's such a kind and caring person who's made such an impression on our hearts. On his birthday he went around the group and said thankyou to each individual person, for being in his life! How gorgeous is that?
Well, I heard he liked Luffy, from the anime One Piece. Luffy, is such an energetic, fun character which I think embodies 18 birthday-ness! So I drew and water-coloured the cartoon and pasted that on a white card and surrounded it in quirky, fun, whimsical letter font!
thanks Luke for being a great friend and for giving me opportunity to make such a fun card!

A3 Paper: Charcoal
Hello lovely friends, so Vess does Life drawing in uni and she wanted to tell you about her work:
Hi guys, wanted to share with you all what I did in Lifedrawing class! One of my classes at uni, the four hour class has been a lot of fun and I think that my drawing has improved. Mind you, I spent like 2-3 hours on this drawing. Usually we do around 12 drawing per class, but that day we only did a maximum two!
So keep practicing all you amazing artists out there!
Really excited to share with you more pieces of work as time goes by. Is that okay? :)

Here, is another beautiful piece from our little thift shop endevours. This coffee colour high waisted skirt, is such a fantastic find. Just one of those pieces which; feels good, looks great and is in great condition! I just really love the classic look of high waisted skirts.This coffee colour especially is really coherent with the creams and baiges of this season.
Lately we've been exploring different places in our house for outfit posts, it's great fun! Our little sister said these pictures make our house look much prettier than it actually is. The illusion of photography! This funky object is a portable television. Which is beginning to look quite retro in the light of Smart phones and such!

This was a terribly fun project which we did a while back for our dear friends in Singapore. We wanted to make each of our friends something personal and unique yet also useable! So we made bookmarks! And also somewhat created a 'brand identity' for their epic cell.
Epic Cell, is the name of their church fellowship group which we were so blessed to visit and experience. We wanted to make gifts to send to them for Christmas and we came up with this idea!
Each book mark has a hand drawn personalized picture (which we drew!) with a corresponding Bible Verse to match the picture!
This was a really fun project and we hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed making them!
