Christmas Printables

Hey all :)

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. And some of you may have noticed that I’ve been less active on social media. But all for good reason! Exciting stuff is happening next year…. I’ll be going on exchange to London next month! As part of an academic program at uni, I got accepted to study there for a semester; hence why I’ve been so MIA. I’ve been so busy organising everything, with form after form and payments after payments, it’s been a little crazy to say the least – especially when you have so many other things going on in life that add to the pile. Nonetheless, I’m beyond excited for this new journey to begin. I’ll be sharing lots with you through social media, so be sure to keep connected with us :) I’ll also be updating the blog more regularly so you can come along with me as I travel through Europe. Speaking of the blog… it has been needing some love lately – so I thought I would update it with a little Christmas gift to you guys. For those last minute present buyers (i.e. me), this one’s for you. I’ve created a set of Christmas cards with 3 designs for you to pass onto your loved ones this year :)  Just click on the ‘Download’ button below and print them out!

I hope you enjoy & Merry Christmas!

Two Thousand Sixteen Calendar

IMG_0656

Hello friends!

Boy, am I late for this post. Like REALLY LATE. I’ve had so much on my plate prior to the new year with end of year final assessments at uni, to working 2 jobs (now 3) and juggling other things in between. Firstly, I wasn’t even going to make a 2016 calendar because I thought – I’m never going to get it ready before the new year (and I didn’t haha). But last year I made a cute little customised 2015 calendar for my brother’s family which they loved (and I loved seeing it hang in their home whenever I visited). And I offered to make another calendar for them! So now that I’ve gotten into the routine of 2016, my productivity has been improving! Thus, my calendar is finally finished.  A few of you were interested in having this one for your homes too which is why I’ve decided to upload this to the blog for you to print :)

I hope it finds a nice place in your bedroom or living room or walls. Please tag us on Instagram if you do end up using my calendar! I would love to see pictures :)

So, I’m jetting off in 6 days to Hong Kong and Malaysia! It’ll be my first Christmas away from home in a long time, which is sad, but exciting all at the same time. I’ll be meeting Jenny’s daughter, Sienna for the first time which I’m really looking forward to :) I’ll also be documenting my travels and posting them on Instagram and here, on the blog, so be sure to watch this space in the duration of my overseas endeavours.

Thank you all for following our content and letting us express ourselves here on this space we created. We hope we continue to inspire you with our posts, our pictures and our passions (I did not plan that alliteration at all).

The Dress

IMG_9831 
-UPDATE-

First of all, I wanted to apologies for this massive hiatus from the blog! I have definitely missed posting on here and it feels great to be back! I have had the most intense first couple months back at uni, juggling a million different commitments and running on little to none sleep! For those who are still unaware, Jenny is pregnant! Which resulted in her feeling unwell during her first trimester, which is why she has been absent from Two Threaded Poppies these past couple of months. But we and our family are still super excited for the baby’s arrival towards the end of the year. When she feels ready, she will be back to post again, but in the mean time I will be taking over the blog (hope y’all don’t mind) :) So today, I have prepared a little book review, of a book I’ve finally had the chance to have a read…

For those who love admiring fashion illustrations and love pretty whimsy and sparkly dresses, this one’s for you. Megan Hess is probably one of my favourite fashion illustrators. Yes, she is super talented at what she does, let’s be honest. But I love her style of illustration… it’s very classic with her modulating brushstrokes and incorporation of interesting textures and prints – a mix of hand and digital rendering. ‘The Dress’ is all about those iconic moments in fashion and how it shaped and moved the fashion world. It’s really interesting to read about the history and background behind these amazing dresses she has illustrated and the intention behind them.

I love how this book is categorised into a few sections: Designers, Icons, Weddings, Music, Film and the Oscars. We get a glimpse of different realms of the fashion world which I find really interesting.

IMG_9833 IMG_9832 IMG_9835Definitely recommend getting this book, because firstly, it’s pretty. Secondly, her illustrations are beautiful to look at… (there’s 100 to look at, come on) and thirdly, these illustrated dresses were designed by the most famous fashion designers in the world, worn by some famous people too, both film and real life, it’s something you don’t want to miss :) You can grab your copy here.
