Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
We have a lot of work to finish in a short amount of time before Jia leaves for South Korea. And it doesn't help that the current state of our studio is starting to look like a war zone, with boxes of freshly printed art prints, Christmas cards and calendars everywhere.
All week long, Jia has been frantically clearing customised design orders while Min tries to pack every single new item at light speed - on top of juggling our usual routines of maintaining our blog, social media and web-store accounts, packing and sending out orders and consignment products, attending meetings and finalising corporate projects AND sorting out Min's wedding preparations.
Woah, it's quite amazing how we have managed to stay alive while keeping tons of happiness and peace in the midst of life's chaos.
Min: I don't know why but I have many cravings of late. I want to chomp and nom on so many different things that sometimes I get full just thinking of it. Almost every bride-to-be I know is going through some form of strict wedding diet and exercise regime. I am a wee bit ashamed to admit that I have none in place - no wedding diet or exercises planned to keep me looking fabulous at the altar. I have been trying to convince myself that I can absolutely rock a double chin and how flab is the new fab. Boooooo, give me my french fries soon!
Jia: This was the week of incredible food. Min and I found ourselves happily indulging in (mainly) awesome Japanese food throughout the week. We stuffed ourselves silly with fresh sashimi, sushi, and heartwarming hot pots, and we ate and we ate and we ate. You know what this means? We are stressed. We are stress-eaters and with the upcoming wedding approaching fast and swiftly, work piling up, Christmas season, and our individual vacations, we are unintentionally seeking out the yummy. I have just 5 days to my family trip and I have yet to pack, yet to check things off the wedding to-do list, and also yet to complete all the work I have on hand. It’s gonna be a crazy week ahead before I fly off on Friday night. Let’s pray for the best!
How was your week been?
With Love, Min+Jia.
