Do you know that there is an artist called Sisley? Alfred Sisley. Me, I didn't until last week! All I know is that Sisley is a brand of bag which is always beside Benetton in most shops. Now, I need to search if Benetton is also a person (anyone here knows?)... whoa, too much for educating my daughter, 'think I also need it... darn!

This is Alfred Sisley's work titled "Spring, Aspens and Acacias".

This is part of the Dreams and Realities exhibition from Musee D'Orsay Paris collection. It's happening now at the National Museum of Singapore. Other than Mr. Sisley's work, there are also works from Renoir, Monet and Vincent van Gogh among others. The highlight is the Starry Night of van Gogh. Another new thing I learned is that "Starry Night" is different from "Starry, starry night" (my eldest daughter told me this info >.<).... too much information for one day... no wonder my (youngest) daughter opted to wait for us in a corner...

this is her (at the left) busying herself while we are inside the museum. the boy on her right might've been thinking the same thing.

Remember the laptop boxes that we got a few weeks ago? we acquired some more (happiness :)) here is the finished product...
I call this my dumpster collection :)

Come and see the new collection on Feb 4-5, 2012 at Vivocity. We will be joining Pop and Talent Hub (PaTH) on that weekend. Details here:
11am to 10pm
VivoCity Shopping Centre, Level 1, West Court & Southwest Boulevard

Hope to see you there!

the art of dumpster diving

Hi there! Another week has zoomed and I was only able to make one journal, hay :( anyway, tomorrow's a new week :) looking forward to the long weekend ahead.

We've got new trash! It's becoming a habit now but what can we do? It's just there, waiting for the recycling truck. It's still new... so to make the long story short, we took it. And it's safe in the trash err craft room waiting to be transformed. Watch out for it!

Have a great week ahead!

Happy new year!!! My first post for the year, yey :) Hope everyone is fine and feeling great. In 2 weeks' time, we will usher in the year of the dragon. World population will greatly rise this year due to this :)

First things first, I will skip MAAD this Friday (13th Jan). I am low on stocks and new designs. But definitely will be back on February. Like me on facebook will you? So you'll be updated. It's easy to put updates in FB than in blogger.

I'll leave you with this photo taken just this evening. It serves as an inspiration to me... hoping I can think of another way to use these... got these from the recycling bin ;)
