A child’s world is so colorful and full of imagination. That two factor was perfectly captured in this children book by Clara Ng. The funny story inside meets a lovable illustration by eMTe, makes it superfun to read by a toddler or even an adult! Besides that, we think that almost every kid dreamt about being able to fly, right? What about you? What was your colorful dream when you were a kid?
Why go plain when you can go colorful? Instead of those boring plain tacks, you can have a pretty colorful push pin just in minutes! All you need is a plain push pin (flat one works best), some nail polish, and a small bottle of nail top coat.
Pin the tacks on cork board or styrofoam to make it easier for you to color it. You can also stick it into an eraser if you don’t have any cork board. And then you can apply any color on its flat surface with nail polish brush. Pattern-free, stripes, polkadots, or whatever you please. Let the first color dry for a couple of minutes, before adding another colors. You can add small details like heart, star, or anchor with a toothpick or a nail art pen. After the whole design is finished, let it dry then give a thin layer of top coat to seal it and make it shines.
Here are some examples of the push pin we’ve made in candy colors and nautical theme.
You can even apply some nail art stickers onto the push pin if you want. Simple, quick, and lovely, with endless possibility of design. Go try it!
And as a bonus, we also made a short tutorial video. Thank you so much Hamam, Nady, Yudha and Aditya for helping us with the video. Enjoy :)

No wonder people called Bandung, “The Creative City”. It seems to me that there’s always something new and unique produced by those talented artists in this city. From food to clothing line, craft to home decor! Just take a look at these furniture and home accessories from 14 Bandung young designer at Homesession.001 last April. This event was created by Normal-Form and curated by U&KL, the furniture division of UNKL347.
Different from the lifeless mass product, these furniture and home decor items has its own unique character and was made with lots of love. Lovely goods that could make your home feels warm and lively. Can’t wait for another creative product on Homesession next year!

Wooden pin is a classic choice to display your favorite photos. Some people like it plain and natural, so it’ll match any kind of colors. But playful is fun, so let’s put some colors on, with MASKING TAPE!
The good thing about this fun little project is if someday you want to go with classic natural pins again, you’ll just need to remove the masking tape. :)

One of the best things having an Instagram account is to be able to look through the everyday life of many creative people around the world. Ayang Cempaka (Dubai based Indonesian Illustrator) is one of our favorite people on Instagram. We’ve been a fan of her beautiful watercolor artworks these past few years, and now through her Instagram account we got to see how lovely her place is.
White painted walls and wooden furnitures. You can feel a bit of modern scandinavian style. :)
So, whose Instagram account you’ve been stalking on lately? Tell us!
