That said, I won’t be posting on WordPress anymore, so please remember to replace our WordPress url with, www.mydollgift.com/blog on your bookmarks!

I’ll be in BALI this Thursday and back next Monday! Stay tuned for beautiful photos of Bali! Meanwhile, don’t miss me too much. :D

Time To Say Goodbye

Happy Sunday!

What have you been up to eh? Well, I’ve been working on a new website for my label, Dollgift.

I can’t help but feel sad to have to bid goodbye to my current one soon.. After all it was the very first website I learnt to build from scratch without a single clue about web building. Getting a new website has been on my mind for quite a while now. There are just too many restrictions to my existing site with some of the bigger problems like; not being smartphones friendly, no shopping cart, a pain to post any updates etc. Of course these problems can be easily solved by incorporating flash or css but  that would also mean extra time, energy and frustrations to figure how to do it (I’m a web building idiot remember?). Hence, I figured switching to a ready-made template website would be a wiser choice in the long run. And I’m actually looking forward to the new one. Heh!

Now will you visit my first love for the last time before it’s gone, www.mydollgift.com.

Join Us At MAAD (Market of Artists and Designers)!

Yes, it’s happening AGAIN!

We’re diving right into another flea market after an uninteresting one just a week ago (read all about it HERE). I’m very sure it’s going to be much more promising and exciting this time round. Why? Because it’s not simply any ordinary flea market, BUT a market of ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS (MAAD)! You just love the name don’t you?

”MAAD is a Market of Artists And Designers. An excuse to do something more exciting with your life. A space for exhibiting, performing, selling, shopping, chit-chatting, surprising and experimenting. MAAD is beyond the usual fashion-base, second-hand flea market. MAAD hawks only original, creative, and more often than not, handmade works by talented painters, jewellery makers, product designers, visual artists, wordsmiths and eco-friendly seamstresses.” –www.maad.sg

If you like the sound of it already, come join us this Friday (just 3 more days!), 1st March at Red Dot Museum (Singapore). We’ll be there from 5pm all the way till midnight! More information can be found on my Facebook page.

We’ll be selling some of our lovely gift cards, prints, limited edition handmade bookmarks/ postcards/ notebooks, tumblers etc.

Look out for our booth with this little signage and say hello! :)

Updates And Full Interview About ME! ^^

GONG XI FA CAI to everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year! ^^

I hope you’ve collected tons of ‘ang pows’ (red packets) and indulged on the endless supply of pineapple tarts.

cny(Pardon the image quality. This was my mom’s best shot after her 10th attempt. lol).

On a different note, I received this email two weeks ago from a sweet lady, Eileen:

”Hi Rheea, was recently at Cat Socrates and bought a tumbler designed by you :) love it for the simplicity of the design!”

She went on to say that she would like to share more about me on her blog, www.ourpaperbacks.wordpress.com. Ourpaperbacks is a little personal space of Eileen, where she shares handicrafts that she made, local artists’ works and stories of people who inspire her. I am so honored to be one of them.

So there you go, click here for the full write up.

Before I leave, there are two important things I would like to remind you again:

1) Promotion for our tumblers is only till end of the week. Translation: This is your LAST chance to personalize a tumbler for FREE. Don’t miss it!

2) DOLLGIFT flea market which is happening this Sunday, 17 February, between 2pm-8pm at Scape (scroll one post down for more information).

Alternative Anniversary/ Wedding Gift Idea

Do you know what’s the best thing I like about being a designer?

Yes, I can design whatever I like. BUT the most fun part is that I get to make people happy when I customize something which adds a personal touch for them.

I remember reading this quote somewhere,

”Business is about making people’s lives better in some ways.”

In my case, I find fulfillment in designing something that make people’s lives happier!

Few weeks ago, I came out with the tumbler series where customers get to personalize it with their name and messages (check HERE for more details about the tumblers! *Stock for the black ones are running out).

Today, I’m excited to launch my latest artwork! Tah-dahhhh!!~~~

balloon house_5

balloon house_2

You can personalize this lovely balloon house to a unique and beautiful wall decor for yourself or your loved ones! A great alternative choice to the usual guestbook.

I’m sure it would make a perfect gift for anniversary, wedding, house warming, birthday and any event you can possibly think of.~

This print measures 16’’ x 20’’, with up to 230 balloons (picture frame not included).

If you need a different dimension or number of balloons, let me know and I’ll make the change for you (price differs for a different dimension).

So, how can you personalize this lovely artwork?

You can include your:

1) Names/ Initials

2) A heading if you like (above the balloons) e.g. Our Wedding, Happy Anniversary.

3) Event date

4) Number of balloons (guests)

5) Color choice.

Can’t find the color combination you like? Then pick up to 3 colors of your choice from the color chart!
