A flashback of an unforgettable event- Week 6 (actual day) Chapter 1

各位读者们新年快好!

终于整理好去年在圣诞前夕参与的The Christmas Pop-up Store organised by The 3rd Space(为圣诞节主办的创意市集)时展览的照片。我想代“小人物”成员所有为“小人物”留下美好回忆的摄影师们说声:“万分感谢!”

今天,我先分享在当天一小部分的照片,然后在让时光倒流6星期前发生的点点滴滴。想要知道更多有关“小人物”内情的朋友可以多多关注。

一个看似不可能的任务,也因背后有许多无名天使伸出援手而顺利完成。尤其想要感谢主办人Joanne Lim热情的邀请还有协助。在梦里也没想到像我这样没名没份的业余爱好者,也可以拥有一个属于自己的平台来分享自认为美的事物。也要谢谢那些无条件帮“小人物”完成任务导致三更半夜没回家的朋友-Lai-San,Su Fen, Chang Wen和Cindy,有你们真好!~

三年前,我有过一次摆摊的经验,当时我也观察到在喜欢手作和生活艺术的朋友寥寥无几,很多时候都是两个人负责一个摊位,画面显得有一点点冷清。由于,我非常喜欢"collaboration"的合作精神,所以借此机会我也硬邀其他三位拥有艺术热忱的朋友加入-把“事情搞大”。是的,我也想摆脱“艺术家”鹤立鸡群的刻板印象。要如何把有才能的人用在一个对的地方?考验着我观察人与事的敏锐度,三十二年的人生经验全都用上了,做的不好还请大家多多指点原谅。

非常感谢跟我一起疯的三位朋友。我们都来自马来西亚,在职场上和艺术圈子,像“点”一样小的让人无法察但骨子里却流着勇敢做梦的血,所以“小人物”就这么诞生了⋯⋯

“还记得小时候玩的数目点连接成一幅图案的游戏吗?大大的宇宙,我们四个小小的点连成一条线,用绚丽的色彩拼出童年那幅梦想图。”

我们是谁?

四个敢做梦但没名没份的小人物们聚集在一起搞搞生活艺术相信团结就是力量。 小人物们相互学习及互补成员不足的地方来圆梦。

买的是?
满满爱心完成适用(用得着,穿得着,吃得着)的艺术品

我们的共同点?
用艳丽的色彩把梦带到真实

Happy New Year to all my readers! Last month, it was my pleasure to be part of The Christmas Pop-up Store organised by The 3rd Space. Big thanks to the pretty and bubbly Joanne Lim who invited me to this fabulous event, her fellow friends Li-San,Su Fen, Chang Wen and Cindy who stayed up till midnight to help my friends and me to set up our store the day before. Wouldn't know how to manage without you guys. A million thanks! 

This is my second attempt in setting up a public store and through experience, I realised that there only exists a very tiny craft community in Singapore. Hence, I gathered my close like-minded kakis (friends) and formed 小人物 DOT TO DOT  for this event. 

"Two connected dots form a line; 
Connected lines form a rainbow; 
A hand painted rainbow leads us towards our dreams; 
Creating childhood nostalgia."

小人物 DOT TO DOT 
Who we are?
DOT TO DOT was born when 4 like-minded friends collaborated to maximize each other’s potential to realize a dream. What we do: We sell wear-able, edible, usable art, made with love to share the innocence of true happiness. 

Our common goal? 
Sharing happiness with our tiny packets of joy by making our dreams a reality

Let's start with a couple of the actual day photos shot by various talented photographers (thanks and grateful to all). And we'll take a trip back 6 weeks earlier to showcase the planning and preparation highlights towards the big event. 

And here we flashback......
