Two hours away.

SMU workshop begins in 2 hours! 

Oh shucks my transportation is here, so I really have to run! 
But here are some photos I snapped of all that I've prepared, that's a lot of stuffs all packed in boxes! 

(I never knew I was a polkadot lover too)

No time for captions too, but you guys should be able to tell what these are! Wish me luck! ♥

The largest miniature workshop.

Okay I exaggerate (a lot) haha.

I meant, the largest workshop for me so far (more than 10 students), and it is happening this Friday! - butterflies in stomach.

Which explains why I've been so quiet on the blog front, I'm actually going quite crazy handling logistics and planning. But I am also looking forward to the sense of accomplishment I am sure to feel at the end of the workshop. But the first part about going crazy mostly. :/

For the local readers, this will be held in SMU, and if you're one of the students attending, HELLO and thank you for joining! ♥


Here is a strawberry cake I sculpted a while back, modelled after L's (in death note) favourite cake.

It is in 1/6th scale, suits Yo-SD sized dolls, and even has its own forkful of cake.

Back to the workshop, I'm so excited about sculpting with so many people, yet anxious about speaking in front of the crowd. No matter what, it will be a great opportunity and experience. -breathes deeply and calms nerves.
Now wish me luck for Friday please! I will definitely need lots of that. ♥

If you don't hear from me..

I'm always grateful for every email that I receive, and make it a point to reply all of them. However, there are a few who have let me know that their mails have gone unanswered. After a futile search in my inbox, it turns out I've never even received their mails.

This is pretty worrying, as it could only mean that Hotmail is slightly cranky. Who knows how many other mails I have unknowingly ignored and how many people I've unconsciously offended! o.O

While I try to figure out what is wrong with Hotmail, I would like anyone who has not received a reply to your mail within 2 days, to please contact me through other ways. (Facebook, Flickr, DoA, blog comments) Really sorry for the hassle, but this is the best solution I can think of now.


Now that the public service announcement is over, let's see some photos shall we?

While surfing around some craft blogs, I came across this which gave my brain a tiny explosion - blu-tack is really useful for tacking down small items which tend to roll around.

I've been sculpting for 2 years and never has that occurred to me! Oh my, all the needless cursing when yet another apple or cherry rolled out of my hands. 

Thus, I put the blu-tack (mine's grey haha) to great use afterwards as seen in the photo. Thank you, craft-blog-that-i-can't-remember-but-will-forever-be-thankful-to!

Usually I only accept food commissions, but lately I started to miss sculpting things with faces (aside from gingerbread men). And so I took on some animal commissions.

This little goat will be made into a handphone charm. ♥

Sunday's coming to a close here, it's 10PM already. Spent all Saturday at my grandparents' and left with a fat envelope of ancient treasured photos to scan and repair with Photoshop. I love spending time with my grandparents, but sadly I don't think I'm doing my best as a grand-daughter. I hope you're not guilty of that as well. :(

It is now 1 AM.

And I'm still decorating faceless gingerbread men

Just look at that little random feast at the back, can you recognise the food, as blurred as they might be?

And look, I got a needle tool with my website inscribed on the needle! :)

Okay no, I didn't. Though that would be nice, a whole set of inscripted tools. ♥ That was just me getting adventurous with my signature! For the first time, I'm not placing it at the corners! Hoho, brave me! Haha, yes I know cheap thrill.

I think I shouldn't blubber too much at night, I say all sorts of funny things when the sun's gone. :/ Please come back and read my posts still?

I forgot to post this, it was from weeks ago. I hope it motivates you, and I will be reminding myself of this while I sculpt crazily tomorrow!

Post-note: Shortly after painting this on my nails, I dropped the bottle of black polish and it got everywhere. On the floors, table, my lamp, my legs. Sigh. And I was supposed to paint 'focus' (there are only so many five-letter motivational words) on the other hand but I was so irritated after spilling that bottle I didn't bother. :/

Oh darn those fattening, unstoppable potato chips.

When they say you can't stop at one, turns out you really can't. One of the few advertising slogans that ring true.

How about some miniature potato chips, it's calorie-free!

 Sculpted in 1/6th scale, Gemma's (Customhouse Ange Ai Gaby) the one holding all the chips.

She doesn't really care about the nutritional information at the back though. But note the big red sticker which says that Ai potato chips have 0g trans-fat, hooray!

what's left after a good chomping session in front of the television.

You can get a bag in the store now - miniature bag of potato chips!
Comes with 15 chips in a bag!

So what do you love as a snack in front of the television or at the movies? 

My choice is Super Rings, and the way I devour them is pretty disgusting. I'll wear them individually on my fingers like a ring, and slowly nibble at them, especially all that lovely tasty orange powder.  ♥

Not the least bit cheery.

Slightly ironic that I'm posting about cherries.

But first let me get this off my chest (if you saw my now-deleted Facebook comment you might know what's going on).

So whatever happened, happened yesterday. Coincidentally it was about apples, but it wasn't about Steve Jobs passing. Since I have communicated with the crafter in question and she has promised me to make necessary changes, I would not comment further on the matter.

All I have to say for now, is for all resellers to please note, I will require you to state that the works are made by me from AiClay. I would also promote your store so it is beneficial for you to let me know you are reselling my items.

Right, moving on!

I have listed the miniature cherries in the store! They are in 1/6th scale, and comes with the little white bowl. ♥ They fit perfectly on little Bambi (pukifee). 

Here's wishing all of you a happy weekend! ♥

I finally shot those darn burgers.

There are some things that is always on my to-do list but also on the Highly Procrastinated list. The lists goes like.

#1287: Repaint walls of room
#1288: Retake photos of burgers

Finally, I can strike an item off the lists (both lists!). And nope, didn't do any painting these days so it's the latter!

#1288: Retake photos of burgers

 And they are also in the shop, together with the tiny burger box. ♥

The hamburger is in 1/6th scale - measuring at 1.7cm in diameter.

What is one thing that has been on your to-do list for a really long time but you've never got to doing?
