怎么觉得好轻松。。。

sunset-3359032_960_720

说出来了,整个人觉得很轻松。。。
也已发现社交媒体,FB没有以前活跃了。 Too much security issue,I guess.
也没什么人关注了,在这儿也徘徊了10年多了,该是时候放下了(虽然很不舍得我的小小手作坊,可是。。。 social media makes me very depressed sometimes, 所以。。。) ,也该把身上的网扫一扫,清理一下身心出去走走了。
突然想到这首歌 “走出去就有路。。。” 😄😄
是时候了。。。
坚持住未必好,放弃了未必不好。。。
现在卖场这么多,也太多了吧,不像以前才那几个比较famous的。
我还是喜欢手作的,会偶尔不定时做些新的作品,放上卖场(现在该想想保留我的网站还是转回卖场 Qoo10 )
有空时,就来走走看看吧 🙂
很感谢大家这几年来的支持与鼓励 ^_^
我要回学校上课了,希望课程会如期开课。加油!^_^Y

Thoughts…

It’s quite some time that I am doing this handmade thingy.
Was thinking, should I move on to other interests with more opportunities, a regular monthly income  & more connection with the outside world? Or should I stay in my handmade business (my comfort zone also) without a regular monthly income & am always working alone & talking to myself with distraction from my children and the house chores every now & then?

Isn’t’ sewing & selling your crafts your passion and dreams?
Err… no lei, dreams are only in the dream right? Sewing & selling my handmade craft is one of my interests. 🙂 This interest developed when I am staying in France, besides raising and caring my children in France, I am pretty free then. I did not have to cook 2 meals per day as my elder child will be in school until 4.30pm and my littlest one was born in 2010 Dec, 4 years apart from her elder sister. And so, she was just a few months old she only drinks milk, “goo goo ga ga” and take naps most of the time. And also, the house chores were not that much then, as we don’t sweat as much as in Singapore (a really hot country most of the times, prefer very much the 4 seasons in France ) and the floor, in my house, in France, will always feel cooling and not sticky and insects and pests would appear only during summer!

Here, in Singapore, the floor, in my house, always makes me feel sticky, food crumbs on the floor or anywhere, have to clean it away FAST! Else the little black ants will come or the big black flying cockroaches will fly in, in the middle of the night. If there’re ants or any insects, there will be house lizards, and these lizards like to poop everywhere they past by. **SIGH ** ok enough of these chores thingy -_-

And that’s why since I’m quite free over there in France, besides selling pre-loved on ebay.fr, I crochet too to past time and sometimes I need to sew lining for the crochet pouch thus I bought a sewing machine too. And slowly, I venture into sewing. 🙂

Go bazaar and you will have connection to the outside world?
I’m unable to produce so many products all by myself. I still need products on my online store. And most of my products I only produce 1 piece. How to go bazaar lei? I did try flea market in France for pre-loved. Was very excited initially, but after that day, I told myself, no more flea markets. It’s not about I made any sales or not, its the hassle of setting up for a day and for a few hours,  and then you have to keep everything again. But it was a good experience though and fun, especially with your friends 🙂

Anyway, my children are growing up, they don’t need much attention from me now. I let my P6 handle her studies herself. I not going to KPO on her studies, (so difficult lei all those Science and Maths questions!) she should know when to play and when to study by now. My P2, still young, but she is better, as in, not as blur as her elder sister at her age. She had a better understanding too. When “jie jie” study she study too so … 🙂

Come to think of it, I am back to Singapore for about 6 years. Officially sewing crafts for about 5 years. Selling all kinds of stuff online in France & in Singapore, for about 10 years, from 2008 till now at different platforms. WOW! I have 10 years of online selling experience sia … power lei .. ha as if …

And also, I have a career break of… if a business doesn’t count as a career, then a total of 14 years. Wow.. that really long. Guess how old am I now? hahaha …

Anyway, these are all my thoughts … and am thinking should I move on or stay in my comfort zone?  Anyone willing to give me any advise? TIA 🙂

 

Quilt phone pouch

说要做就赶快做! Since I’m having diarrhoea can’t travel anywhere so might as well do it.
Else once my mood die down this will be put on hold for? maybe weeks…
My quilted zip phone pouch.
With short handles 
Added 2 pockets in it.  
1 side for my cards, the other side for my notes, coins, keys, earbud etc.
Can see my “rubbish” ya 
It is very useful to me whenever I go for my morning walk while enjoying the music from my phone or just a short trip for groceries.
Love this so much!! 
Thank you so much for looking 
Have a great Sunday!

Quilt tablet sleeve

Made a quilt tablet sleeve for my tablet. 
A bit big but it’s for myself, so ok 的 …
Trying out how to sew the zip all around with bias binding.
It is easy, but, of course, more time is needed for a “beginner” like me 
I love the padded feel, so soft and “tight’. Now I know why when they put batting in between fabrics they will sew lines on it -> To make it feel ‘tight’.
Will make another 1 for my phone 
Thank you for looking and have a good night!
