I am originally from a small province called Trang in southern Thailand. Like many people who are in search of their passions, I have spent years finding my passion by working for charities, fast-paced IT companies, a big telco company, tried other things including teaching, accounting and project management. During these years, craft and sewing are hobbies I have enjoyed regardless of what life threw at me.

The lampshade idea came up during our home renovations (Blaxland, Lower Blue mountains) – when I realised how a beautiful lampshade adds excitement, warmth and comfort to your living space at an affordable price.

Besides craft and sewing, I immensely enjoy gardening and cooking. Call in for a cup of tea or coffee if you would like to have a chat!
