Shop Update: Festive season pre-orders!

Kiara – a whimsical assymetrical piece

It seems like time really flies when one is busy and I feel like I am always behind! Each time I think I am able to get back to some kind of a regular routine, things happen that toss it all into the air again!

Some of our loyal customer-turned-friends have asked me what’s on offer in my shop this festive season and I feel so moved that my humble little label enjoys the love it does.

I have put together our first ever catalogue for pre-orders.

This is the link to our .pdf catalogue.

Our usual shop policies apply. If you are ordering several pieces please contact me so I may advise on availability, turnaround times as well as bulk discounts.

Please note that all Christmas orders close as follows:-

Singapore – 7 December 2018, to ship by 14 December 2018

International – 30 November 2018, to ship by 7 December 2018

Thank you!

Zentangles – Diva Challenge 236 and Cadenza

Diva Challenge 236 – Tangle Unexpected

I have been busy – a good sorta busy 🙂

Since I have not been having much down time this couple of weeks, I am featuring past postcards and ATCs that I have made with old book paper (one of my favourite mediums because it is SO good to advocate upcycling this way!), including a larger piece on good old scrapbooking paper.

Here goes 😉 Starting with a few ATCs… [ clicking on the images will take you to Flickr ]

Zenuari Challenge Day 11 - Zendala SundayNew tangle – Cadenza

I am pleased to unveil my latest tangle discovery, the Cadenza or CadenZa. The emphasized Z being Z for Zentangle 😛

Those familiar with me and my tangling style, would probably know that I am not a huge fan of grid-based tangles. Nevertheless, this one really started to grow on me. Something about it makes me think of oriental lanterns! I have been filling all my tiles with it since I came across it earlier this week.

It is thus named, because when I deconstructed this pattern, I found that it could be built upon an official Zentangle pattern called the Cadent

[ EDIT: This tangle was not originally intended as a filling for Cadent, but I am aware it does look that way from the step outs 🙂 The pattern that inspired this tangle did not resemble Cadent until I was deconstructing it. In other words, it was only as I was creating the step outs that it became apparent to me that using Cadent as a first step would greatly simplify the process, as well as help to even out the very curvy shapes. Here is the image of the original pattern as seen in real life: http://goo.gl/MdISbQ  ]

Without further ado… I give you, the CadenZa 😉 Have fun!  [ clicking on the images below will take you to Flickr ]

Cadenza - a new tangle

Since the Cadent is an official tangle that was created by Rick and Maria, I decided to include a statement in my stepouts as a mark of respect.

The trick to this tangle is to insert parallel lines in Step 4., rotate the tile and insert another parallel line in Step 5. Another tip is to add the inner strokes in a clockwise direction in Step 6, because it can get very confusing if added on a whim.

Here are more examples of Cadenza in action 🙂

Updates for March – June 2015

I hope this post finds each of you well after a week of feasting and merry making! 🙂 BLESSED LUNAR NEW YEAR!! Hope you stay ‘yang’ and healthy always!

Here are some updates from my corner of the world.

Hamster Reservations Closed

Thank you for all the love you have shown our little Hamstery over the last twenty years, in one way or another 🙂

A short while ago, we announced that reservations were open for our hamster family’s 8th generation. Since then, we have been blessed with the arrival of two healthy litters of Roborovskis from Hazelnut Frappe and Almond Roca.

We have enjoyed tremendous favour and support and are pleased to report that both our litters have been ‘over-subscribed’. With full hearts, we are closing reservations for the time being. If you have already been placed onto our waiting list, this announcement does not affect you.

Here are some photos of the first litter for your viewing pleasure 🙂

N.B: Fresh reservations (for our 9th generation) may be placed when we open the call for reservations again. The next call for reservations looks to take place sometime in the final quarter of 2015 (given how fast this year seems to be going!).

5hop Announcement

Hello!

Just a quick entry to say that I will not be uploading new listings to the 5tudio 5hop over the next few days.

I am in the process of creating and relocating my crafting space in a different part of my home. It is an epic ordeal (somewhat!) for me as space is quite limited.

Although I do have pieces waiting to be listed, new listings will only be created towards the end of September. Please bear with me, though otherwise, it’s business as usual.

For all purchases and related enquiries, please contact hesedetang[at]gmail.com or LINE/whatsapp +6597541224.

Thanks for understanding!
