In the land of poms

November & December has been pretty work-heavy, pom pom work-heavy. I held a Totoro Pom workshop at the end of October, it was the most advanced class to date. If we had all the time in the world, the ladies would have been able to trim their Totoros to perfection.

Two Sundays back, I held another workshop, well more of a get-together and less of a workshop. The idea of the session was for everyone to make any type of pom pom they liked, at their own pace, after I’ve demonstrated the steps. One of the participant’s husband, Greg, took a video. So with that video, I turned it into a longer video. (Thanks Greg! It is precious footage to me!)

And some more photos because the venue was amazing! The Letter J Supply‘s space is a dream.

There is one upcoming workshop on 29th August and I’m posting the important details at the end of this post. So scroll all the way down if this interests you!

If you’re wondering what exactly goes on during one of my classes, here are some photos of my first two classes held at The Little Dröm Store.

San Francisco

It made me happy to hear (comments) from you old-timey blog friends! Want to say “hi!” back.

I’ve got some photos of our morning hike along the California Coastal Trail in SF. I still think about it every now and then, and miss it.

We Uber-ed to the Cliff House, the starting point. (We Uber-ed everywhere in SF. It’s the second best way to get around as a tourist. The best way, of course, is renting a car and driving yourself, which we did on our last half-a-day in SF. Surprisingly street parking wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be.) We missed out on the Camera Obscura as we were too early, it looked so cute though!

A friend told us about Muir Woods which looks like a dream. Wish we had more time. I defo feel like there is so much more to see and do. So I’m gonna find a way back soon. While we were there, I kept stumbling upon articles that mentioned the best things about Oakland too. Allison and Diane, *waves*!

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe was beautiful and slow and easy. We rented a car and drove from San Francisco. I’ve never seen trees so good looking before. The scenery was stunning, people were friendly, I was so happy. Having the anxiety of finding parking/crowds/what to do/what to eat/can’t miss out removed was nice, so so nice.

Food-wise, we thoroughly enjoyed Sprouts Cafe. Ate there twice! Ben still dreams of “the best buttermilk pancakes” he had at Bert’s Cafe. Forget about trying Basecamp Pizza Co., pizzas weren’t great.

Day one once more

.

.

Hey! I’m writing from my new desk in our new home. I am so tired from packing and unpacking. The house is still in half a mess. Ben’s making me feel terrible about owning too many things. And it’s not even too many shoes and bags situation, it’s too many tools and art materials and empty glass jars AND books.

The past week has been so tough, the both of us swear we never want to move again. And we hired movers… The house still smells of fresh paint. The cats are settling in, Fatboy has found his vantage point in the kitchen, Indie is comfortable sleeping right smack in the middle of the couch. I have to add that Fatboy yelled the entire car ride from Jurong West to Sengkang. It really felt like we wouldn’t make it. But we did. Happy face. I can’t believe it. I’m going in sleep in a new bed, wake up tomorrow morning with a slight scare from unfamiliar walls – does that happen to you? It always happens to me!

There’s so much left to do and it’s a brand new kind of excitement, to turn our house into a home.
