oh my oh my, Crafty Days are lovely days :)
Finally i had a chance to meet those talented crafters.
to my surprise, some of my old friends are people behind the brands i'm familiar with! (hmm.. i should get out from my house and hang out more often).
Met these wonderful people in person and shared our passion, experiences and secret info are huge points for me. it encouraged me to keep doing what i love. specially when they love my works and bought it :p. Ah, priceless.
here are some photos i took using my phone. blame my forgetful brain, i didnt bring my camera! so im sorry if these pics are a little bit blurry... :(.
MaeLady big family. say hi ^^
My left neighbour was Dessy. she made crochetted toys, packaged in cute plastic bottles. i'm not really into knit/crochet but her works amazed me with high standard of details and patience. you can see more of her amigurumi here. be ready to get wowed.
the other neighbour were arum and her funny mom from pyur handmade. what i admire from arum's painted wood is (again) in the details. they look like ordinary piece of pin/keychain at first. but if you look closely, they were each painted by hand, very very very neat, flawless and they came in very small pieces. it really needed steady hand and high doses of patience. one thing that i'm lack of :p.
and this is mia, me and arum with her ear pompom! hahaha she is so hillarious and full of energy! i think she gets that from her mom :p
there were 16 tables, full of amazing, marvellous, handmade products by selected crafters. it kind of remind me to rose sunday market in melbourne. but Crafty Day is better cos all items are sold in rupiahs instead of dollars, which is way more suitable for my pocket hahaha..
and look what i got from crafty day :
you know i cant resist whimsy pattern on a fabric, and this cute pouch from nesofojanto was calling me... so i bought one :D . i always have a dream to make my own fabric with my design printed on it. seems like ojanto did it first :p
and this is something you must try before you die. this organic orange jam with jasmine scent made by mei from oma anna. usually i dont like jam but this one is so fresh, not too sweet and chewy since it has many orange peels in it . you can feel the juice comes out when you bite it.
last but not least, thank you so much and happy birthday to tobucil who made all this happen. keep up the good work :)
