I know you all love DIYs as much as I do (don’t even try to deny it!), so I thought it was high time I started showcasing some of the incredible DIYs (and DIY-ers) out there that have caught my attention recently. I’ll try and make it a regular segment, so we can all stay feeling inspired by all that creativity out there! :)
So first up is this UH-mazing Rope Bowl DIY. How cool is that?! Seriously, if you need me this weekend I’ll be at the craft store loading up on ridiculous amounts of rope.
This lovely DIY was created by Gemma Padford for A Pair & A Square. Gemma also makes and sells these baskets in her shop, so if you’re not too handy with a sewing machine, you can still have one for yourself! :)

I’ve been having fun with my new washi tapes ;)
Did you know that the fabulous washi tape company MT are holding an exhibition and shop here in Singapore right now?! I only found out about it late last week, so on Sunday Dave and I went to check it out. I had no idea what to expect going in, but figured they couldn’t go too wrong with all that amazing masking tape! And I wasn’t disappointed – I quickly found myself in complete awe of all the bright stripes covering the walls and floor, and the endless supply of cool ideas! I was especially taken with the new MT Casa tapes, which are wider than usual for use in your home (like wallpaper!).
They also had a workshop station where you could use their tapes to make postcards. Overall, it’s was a really fun experience!
I’d highly recommend :)
(Sorry the photos aren’t too great, I only had my phone and the light wasn’t amazing!)
You can check out the MT exhibition in Singapore until the 11th August, 2013 at ION Art Gallery (Level 4). It’s totally free, but good luck leaving without purchasing something!
Here were my spoils of the day ;)
I’m planning on putting them to good use in a little DIY or two in the coming weeks! :)
I just couldn’t go past these two cloud shaped lovelies! Aren’t they sweet?

Before I sign off for the weekend (again) I just wanted to have a quick chat about Instagram.. do you use it?
I’ve had an account for quite a while now, but never really got into it. Thing is, even though I love seeing what other people are up to through their photos, I struggle a little bit with the idea that anyone would really be interested in my day-to-day. It’s a bit like “who on earth really wants to see what I had for lunch” type thing, even though I like seeing what other people had for lunch. Ha.
BUT I’m slowly getting over myself and am trying really hard to post there more frequently. So, I just wanted to let you know in case you’re interested to follow along and see what I had for lunch.
Kidding! I’ll post that tomorrow.
So if you’re on Instagram and would like to follow me, you can find me HERE, or just search for fellowfellow! :)
