Being excited for this market since the Japan trip, I would have been shopping for my pop-up booth decors from Japan which was conveniently selling all things Summer-themed! (See more about my Japan trip  and this craft market in the previous post!)

Three options of cards for the workshop, for only RM5 each!

I even bought my table-setting cloth from Japan’s Daiso which has a pretty good quality cloth that I still use today for my flatlays photography and my pop-up booth. <3


For the market, I made some Summer-themed pre-made ‘Thank You’ and ‘Happy Birthday’ cards. I also prepared cardstocks and pre-embossed white base card for a Mini Watercolor Cardmaking Workshop. As I was also interning at the hospital full time, I didn’t have much spare time (or discipline perhaps haha) to prepare for the last minute decision to have a workshop on the day of the craft market. I had my mum pulled an all-nighter to help me with the last minute prep for the workshop (We targetted to make 40 participants, which wasn’t enough :)).

But the response I had at the booth the next day was truly encouraging and worth every second of my sacrificed-sleep hours! Seeing the children making their own style of watercoloured-cards, and the satisfactory joy on their face was all that was needed to make me realised I truly enjoy what I do for my hobby. 😀 Overall, this market went pretty well, thanks for great advertising and professional vendor handling by the Miri Artisan Market team!
