A Fairy-Tale in our Crafting Land

Working full-time as a crafter can get rather lonely sometimes. Simply coz u don't have colleagues to gossips with, nor bosses whom we can b***h about?! hehe... so i should say I'm so lucky to have started my crafting journey @MAAD, where I met many like-minders who have become great friends :) SO I'm gonna take this opportunity to introduce these amazingly talented friends of mine here, one at a time, over the next few weeks, in celebration of Knotty Bicsie's 5th Birthday :)

Leatherprince - a hubby-wifey-team... Every couple's dream, or at least I'm speaking for Dar & myself la... We are so envious! :P When Beon & Candy 1st came to MAAD, I thought Beon looked real familiar, & I found out that he actually appeared on TV before as the few young cobblers left in Singapore! Isn't this guy simply brilliant??? To have successfully made a traditional craft/skill into such a trendy trade! Coupled with Candy's illustration background, nothing's gonna stop Leatherprince! What a perfect match! :)

I got this leather notebook for Edward a few years back, from another fellow MAADster, Colleen, which I later asked Beon to customize this Transformer Logo onto it. Look at the details! & Leatherprince actually apologized for the "bad finishings" due to the small size of the logo & nature of leather craft!? Dear Beon & Candy, are u kidding?? Itx looking FANTASTIC! Dar & I were so thrilled when we saw the finished work! Thanx a million, Leatherprince! ;)

Leatherprince has since shifted their focus onto their online shop @etsy.com & has made truly made Singaporean Crafters very proud in becoming one of the top sellers among strong international competition in a very short period of time. Our crafty Prince & Princess have also shifted to Taiwan (Princess' hometown) a few years ago. Still never stop making me smile with their amazing work of heart whenever I "stalk" them on facebook :P O, & I'm loving their studio too! hehe... Check out these cuties!!! :D Did they make u smile? They sure did make me day :)

To My Dear Friends, Beon & Candy, promise u'll keep playing with those leathers & never stop surprising us with your amazing creations, yah? ;) I'm sure The Leatherprince Story is gonna be just like in the fairy-tales... & they live happily ever after... :)
