Matic Bazaar

Our area has been part of the water rationing exercise since March. How this works is - we only get water every two days which means we don't get water the following two days after that which means no silkscreen printing for a while :(

On the bright side it has been raining almost every evening for the past couple of weeks starting with the few days before the weekend me and my regular bazaar buddies, Lynn and Luukaleather, participated in the 360 Bazaar Kuala Lumpur at Lanai Matic. The weather was wonderful - cool with overcast sky. No hot sun beating down on us. In the evening it got a bit wet but luckily it wasn't a full on downpour!


My batik bags in new colours.


My pouches.

The Tween painted the pretty display labels. She has way better colour sense than me! 


And of course, adorable handmade sock pets, foldable clutches by Lynn and leather accessories by Luukaleather.

Thanks J, L and S for helping us immeasurably with the booth!
Terima kasih also to the wonderful 5 gadis next to us for babysitting the Toddler the whole day! 

And a Special Thank You to all who came by to support handmade. May we meet again!

I guess you could say I had a great time :)

The Water Diary


...a short by Jane Campion

Some days the sky gets dark and you hear the rumble of thunder in the distance. Tiny drops of  water begin to fall onto the windscreen as you rush home to bring in the clothes hanging outside. But then you reach the house and  it stops. Completely.

Our lawn has turned brown. The haze is so bad you can smell the smoke. The people have been cautioned against heat stroke. Water rationing has started in some parts of the Klang Valley.  Last Friday 207 mosques in Penang held the special Istisqa prayer simultaneously where thousands prayed for the much needed rain. 

This is our water diary.

I hope it rains at and in the end.

Ruang!


The Bearded Lady has invited Timitimitonga to join them at a bazaar to be held tomorrow at Ruang in Subang Jaya. Ruang means "space" in English and it's precisely just that - a space to hold events. I've not been there but judging from this blog entry on a bazaar held some time back in January, it sure looks like it will be another fun, happening event.

Luckily I made these mini pouches and wristlets before The Man went off on a job or I wouldn't have anything to sell! See ya!

Saturday & Sunday
8 - 9 March 2014
10 am onwards

A tag and repeats


The Man and The Tween helped me design a name card for TiMi sale at The Bearded Lady. I wanted it as simple as possible. so I'm really happy with how it turned out. Also stuck some onto Ikea gift tags for the bags I had for sale.


With The Man away on a job, I have not been able to do any printing with the silkscreens. Not to be deterred, I experimented with the stamps I made some months ago. Pretty me thinks :)

That's Cat waiting for some attention. He's a real sweetie when he's not out hunting down birds, frogs and lizards. Ish!

A bird...



I was about to step out with the Toddler to pick up the Tween from netball practice when Cat hurried in carrying something black in his mouth. I couldn't make out what it was at first and thought it might be something poisonous, aggressive and still very much alive! Instead it was this beautiful dead bird. So sad :(

Does anyone know what species this is?
