Besides of the weather that was extremely hot, all went smooth. I had mother and daughter (Sylvia & Pat), Shy, lecturer from JB, 2 students from UPM Safiyah & Adiba, 2 sisters; Hoi Yan & Rachel and Yvonne orang kuat from Kaka Market.

They are all doing fine for first timer...I always feel grateful for be able to held this workshop; venue where I be able to meet all the wonderful people. They had inspired me with their passion and the enthusiastic they shown was such an encouragement and each of their character added so much spices to my life. It was such a fulfilling moment.

What a Great Day

I had a wonderful time at LittleSyam Book Binding Workshop yesterday. I did not realized how time flies.

I am too busy, and we don't even have group photo taken....adoooiiii:(

The workshop quite pack yesterday, since I don't have experience held workshop at the Lollipop House, I might estimated wrongly on the number that can fit into the space:P...I prefer to have more space to breath but we did managed to squeeze everyone in...phewwww. Chris and me had turned down many applications. I am enjoying every second of it and I hope each student feel that too. Chris such a good host, and I had a fulfilling session spreading the skill to all the lovely people.

complimentary, pouch bag from Chris...:)

Eita had assisted me throughout the workshop, and I am so grateful to have her around..And I ordered a yummy vege and chicken pie from her for the book binding session too...

Till we meet again folks:) luv //syam

I am happy I had completed another "Our Adventure Book":) It was so overwhelming to pack the book and send it over to post office. I felt like a Santa Claus sending present with the hope Cheath will be happy to receive it. This book specially made to Joey & Cheath for their Walt Disney Concept Wedding.
I hope they will be happy with the final result as much as I am happy making it :) 

Sample for corporate gift, experimenting a silkscreen on suede.
I am happy with the outcome and will making more.
So stay tune:)
I had my first meeting with client yesterday, they sound please with the sample and wanted me to come out with a prototype and quotation within two weeks time. I am happy the fact my craft to be taken seriously and potential to carry my style for a serious business level. Will see how it goes...

Happy Monday

Life almost back to normal.. kind of feel it going to get busy as it used to be before but this time I raise by having a better perspective looking at things. I gained my strength even though not fully... I love the way how we could turn all the pain to become greater. How through difficult time can make us stronger..and how I appreciate life differently than I used to be before.

Small little up and down, that definitely will add spices to my life chapter...and now I move on to new chapter. Amin:)

Work in Progress:) To be sent to Colorado real soon..

Playing around with material..for corporate gift proposal.
Meeting with client tomorrow..Wish me luck:)
This week gonna be busy with meeting, commission jobs to be delivered and teaching. I will have a new batch of students for my applied design class this Thursday.. and going to have a few more classes from batch 02. Thought of taking a break from teaching but I need to fulfill what responsibility has been laid down to me and I am sure it going to be a nice ride, interesting journey sharing as much knowledge and inspiring, equip them to become a better designer, open up and make them look at thing differently. That what interesting about teaching this young people.

I will have LittleSyam book binding workshop this weekend. I am so looking forward to meet with new participant. Three familiar faces from my last workshop will join too for a different slot.  I apologize to have turned down many application. Chris and me try to accommodate as much, but we would like the space to be as comfortable as we could to everyone.

I wish all of you to have a great week....I am sure will do.

have a great week peeps//luv syam
