You should all be familiar with one of the best gifts on the markets by now, Time Capsules (is it obvious we are big fans of it yet? ). Well, from the same wonderful Make History team, founder, idea creator and owner Anouk van der El, product designer Ivan Kasner and graphic designers Mae Engelgeer and Marloes Sijm are so proud to bring us the Little Quote Jar!
Another thing to celebrate is that this beauty is now available. Yes! You can get your hands on it in our very own Bloesem Creative Space! Being the very first retailer in Asia, you can find the Little Quote Jar at the Bloesem Creative Space in Tiong Bahru! It's fresh from the factory and already making itself comfortable beside the Timecapsule in the studio.
People say crazy, funny, not-be-forgotten things alot in our life, whether it's children saying the darndest things or your colleagues cracking you up with one-liners, the team has come up with yet another beautiful and sentimental product thats going to help us keep all the great memories, and great quotes.
Little Quote Jar is a glass jar with a cork top, and it comes with two little notepads and a pencil. The adorable jar looks great whether it's on your kitchen counter or on a book shelf. Always there full of the best times and the little treasures of things the people around you have said.
We would love to hear the funny quotes you have heard! Whether it's an innocent question from your 5 year old or something wise but hilarious gramps said, share it with us in the comments!
It was really great to have a chance to be part of the photography and styling of the Little Quote Jar, done right here in the Bloesem Studio! (Thank goodness for our light shaft which gives us access to great natural lighting.) - Zara

Whenever I walk into a craft store, I'm like a kid in a candy shop, I find most things too hard to resist. Somehow hama beads have never really caught my interest... till now!
It's perfect for pattern making and making little crafts especially with kids. It's simple enough to do, the key is just picking the right colors! They come in a wide range of colors so color variety or finding your favorite color is definitely not going to be a problem.
There are so many hama tutorials online showing you all kinds of crafts you can make with the hama beads. From simple bracelets to baskets. I've seen alot of DIY hama bead jewelry online as well. I really like the hama coasters though. You just have to arrange your favourite colored beads in a square or circle, apply heat with an iron and tah-dah! ~ Zara S.

All kids love to stamp ... and mine do too .. so I ordered one of the vacation stamps at Smallable and to be very honest I was a bit selfish when choosing this set ... some of the stamps are very usable to me personanlly .. either to mark on a little note card or gift tag!
The ultimate DIY kit in my book ... i love baby shoes... even wanted to start my own collection one day ... I love leather and I love making things ... add these three things together and voila a new product is born ... smart thinking and very nicely executed by First Baby Shoes!
A fun present for every new mom or dad!

This week Véronique from Pichouline shows how easy it is to make a lovely flower brooch. And the good thing is it is made out of clothing labels! You know the tags you keep in a box ... well at least I do, thinking they might come in handy one day :) ... and here you go ... make flowers! You can use them as a pin on napkins for table decoration too!

Marsha Golemac is a Melbourne based creative specialising in Paper Art and ever since I have shown some of her work on Bloesem (when writing about Love Mae wrapping paper ideas) I have been a loyal follower of her.
Marsha's Paper ideas are a great inspiration to me and I am planning on making a paper chandelier this weekend with my boys ... of course it won't be a big one like the one she made with all the children, but just a small one for our home probably with some nice messages on it ... [MORE IMAGES BELOW]
I wish you a lovely weekend too and love to hear what your plans are!
The Paper Chanderlier was een idea to celebrate The School's (great idea too) first Birthday.
