Crafting with a donut in hand.

How many of you can say you've eaten a donut, WHILE making a miniature one? Well, I know 6 ladies who can. :)

Last Saturday, there was a donut party happening at BFF Zakka. It was my first time holding a workshop at a store, and I loved it! The setting was lovely with the flowy white curtains, beautifully decorated walls and local handcrafted products all adorably displayed everywhere. During breaks, the participants got to check out the wide assortment of goodies in BFF Zakka. 

Oh, and did I mention there was soft, light music playing throughout the workshop. Coupled with the warm lighting and fruit tea brewed by the ladies of BFF Zakka, I felt like I should be enjoying a spa massage instead lol. Thankfully I was on a proper donut-making mission there and so my spa daydreams didn't go on for long. ;)

I prepared some miniature decorations (sprinkles and hearts and stars) beforehand, but I needn't have, as all the participants insisted on making their own donut decorations! I'm quite glad they are all taking so much pride in their donuts and wanting to make something they can say they've truly made from scratch. :)

P.S Those decorations in the bottles may not seem much but the little sprinkles took me at least a few hours for each colour! By the way, before you ask me why don't I just use metal beads instead, I found that some metal beads bleed colour into polymer clay. BUT I've heard that Martha Stewart's beads are compatible with polymer clay, so I'm going to give those a try once I can get my hands on them!

Thanks to all of you who came down, and shared in my first workshop experience at a store! :)

I know I've been really active on the workshops' front this few weeks, but after this weekend I'll finally have a short break from all the preparation and lugging suitcases up the stairs. (Somehow all of my workshop locations are on the second level with no lift access!)

And I have a small project in mind. Let me give you a clue. Beedobeedobeedo. ;) Come back to see if you guessed right!

But before that, here's another chance for us to craft together this Saturday! We'll be making miniature cupcakes on earrings, with your own designs. Details are in the poster below.
