aidaville So folks, this is a working crafter's space .... I work, I don't have live in help to tidy, I still cook meals for the family, clean the home ..... it's real life, not staged. One word describes how I feel : grateful. For family, our pets and friends (you know who you are !), and creative work that fascinates me. #sgtoday #sglife #sgcraft #sgig #igsg #grateful #happy #thankful #real 2d
  •   aidaville @dwita_crafter ... thank you, it's small but it's my piece of crafting heaven 2d
  •   aidaville @scrappyscrappy_ ... heh this after an hour of tidying up .... the photo doesn't show what's UNDER the table !! 2d
  •   scrappyscrappy_ Hehhee .... Sssshhhh! All of us crafters hoard so much I have no space left for my things 2d
  •   bonariveratran They totally are first. I'm parked in a corner too. Lol! They definitely do have so much stuff and still buying. Heehee It sure is tough, I have to clean right away after I'm done. If I craft late at night, I just wait til the next morning. Lol! 2d
  •   bettytoh Aida, you hit the spot! It's the same insane life for me. But I love your beautiful mess. (: 2d
  •   aidaville @bettytoh ... Betty !! How are you, and Gwen ? I've packed a RAK for her with Ballet stickers, am hoping to see her after her exams ! 2d
  •   bettytoh We've been busy. And, Thank you! You have to see how thrilled she is! (: She's not going to wait till after exams. Hahaha... 1d

aidaville Thank you Nina @anintran and Sharisse @piecescalligraphy for such an inspiring calligraphy feed. Both your positive encouragement and generous tips have made it all so much easier for newbies to start. Sharing my #handletteredABCs_tools today : being fairly new, I'm not always confident and it's sometimes discouraging seeing very little progress. Good tools that fit my budget and needs helps tremendously because they are a pleasure to use. Being in Singapore and having access to these items makes me feel very lucky. These are my oblique holders by @artemscribendi that I swear by ! Nibs are Nikko G, Leonardt 66EF and vintage Blanzy 2500. Currently my fav inks are Ecoline Bronze Green, then Juniper Green Dr PH Martin Radiant Watercolor. #sglife #sgtoday #sgart #calligraphy #calligraphysg #pointedpen #thecalligraphymarket 2d

  •   nicnillasink Lol. Some nibs juts are bastards 5d
  •   amorepaperandink I can so relate 5d
  •   aidaville @nicnillasink .... yes !! 5d
  •   aidaville @amorepaperandink .... I kept thinking it was me being fairly new at this, till I decided that's it, not going to beat my head over it. Just go with what works right ? Thank you for dropping by, I totally drool at your work 5d
  •   artistelle Oh Aida! I'm so sorry, this is not right! Shame on Mr Gillot. He sounds abusive to have left you so frustrated and feeling defeated and I know you well enough to know you've given the relationship all you've got. Dump him now! Now I say! Now, before he takes you down any farther! You are far too good for this! Find another, don't let him control you! That perfect match is out there. ..just waiting for you! Waiting and wanting to make you smile, make perfect music with you! You're simply too good for this. And remember that you have lots of support...many friends and family, at the ready, to help you. We love you and want the best for you! #feelingsilly 5d
  •   aidaville @artistelle ...... happy to have made you laugh Elle and feeling silly ! 5d
  •   calligraphrinnn Agree! 4d
  •   anintran These are my sentiments exactly with Gilliot. One day... ONE day 🏻🏻🏻. 2d

aidaville Lizzie Mary Cullen's Magical City ... the paper quality is very good, it's white compared to others that are cream, good quality colour pencils are better suited to it. Clean Color Brushes tended to warp it a little, especially when I used a water brush. 1w
  •   scrappyscrappy_ So pretty !!! 1w
  •   jasbeanie Ooo bring bring! I brought mine today haha 1w
  •   wtttan This is very popular now? I see a lot in NYC too. 6d
  •   helentilbury Aida please could you give me some calligraphy advice. Here I can buy a book set with pens but people tell me it will take hours and hours of practice. 3d
  •   aidaville @helentilbury -- @helentilbury ... they are not kidding about practice ! It took me a year to get this far, and I am not even that good. You can get the book by Eleanor Winter which is the standard for Copperplate (Mastering Copperplate) and there are a lot of online blogs with tutorials and tips. Follow @anintran, her blog is tremendously helpful 😀 2d
  •   anintran @aidaville Aida, you are so kind. Thank you so much for your encouragement . I love your work 2d
  •   helentilbury Thank you Aida 2d

aidaville It's ok to be real, to be imperfect, we can try again tomorrow, our families and true friends will still love us .... second chances will always come around. #imperfect #good #sgtoday #sgig #igsg #sglife #sgliving #livewell #letgo 2w
  •   chefpinky Thank you @aidaville, I don't feel so bad about my lousy coloring/watercolor now! 2w
  •   aidaville @eddlisa ... Thank you 2w
  •   aidaville @chefpinky ... there are some things we do very well [I can't make beautiful meringues to save my life !] .... while other stuff a slower process, requiring detours in the journey. No need to be perfect all the time, very stressful just meandering, exploring, enjoying the surprises along the creative trip is more fun. 2w
  •   chefpinky Thanks @aidaville , agreed! That's why the meringues have taken a rest. busy with the distress markers, derwent, prisma and zigs! 2w
  •   silk_toy Signed with blood lol 2w
  •   shakenbliss Boy your calligraphy is so awesome. I'm just learning. 2w
  •   aidaville @silk_toy ... 2w
  •   aidaville @shakenbliss ... Shari, thank you, this took almost a year of practice. 2w

aidaville I use a lot of @sizzix dies in workshops @madewithlovesg. The classes are designed to teach you how to combine dies from various designers, to show you the possibilities beyond their shapes, and to use them effectively with papers and other supplies. This September in the whimsical Circus Carousel Workshop, see how die-cuts add magic to the project ! #mwlworkshop #madewithlovesg #sgart #sgig #sizzix #sgtoday 2w
