One Day Without Shoes!
As huge fans of TOMS, we are super excited to be part of One Day Without Shoes (ODWS) organised by Rockstar by Soon Lee. For those not familiar with the awesome concept behind TOMS - for every pair of TOMS footwear that you purchase, they give a pair to a child in need. One for one! With shoes, these children can protect their feet from cuts and infections, and go to school! Tomorrow, the both...
Marcus & Hsin are full of win!
We started 2013 with one of the most generous couple that we know. They’re none other than Marcus & Hsin, and they’re truly so full of win! It was an absolute breeze designing and working with them because they are so easy-going and they are very open to ideas. Their absolute trust & faith in us and our proposed design direction - we feel so undeserving and so unworthy but...
A Merry Mess!
We are usually neat organised but sometimes when crafting is in full swing, we sometimes let the mess and our mountains of tools / materials get the better of us. (Dear family, if you guys are reading this, we are deeply sorry! Thanks for being so understanding!) For the happy union of Marcus & Hsin, crafting was exceptionally enjoyable! The colours, the embellishments, the flowers - they...

Cones & Co.
And so, while spring cleaning in merry motion, we came across the cute waffle-print cones we made for Marcus & Hsin which we used to contain the bunches of handmade paper/fabric flowers to line the aisle. We decided to have a little fun with them. Here are the cuteys Weijie & Wei’an working the cones - Weijie the unicorn / uni-waffle-cone! :) Merry, merry,...

A Merry December I
Is it just us or is time flying by really quickly? It feels like only yesterday when we were bent over mixing bowls trying to whip up the perfect fortune cookie recipe. We’re no experts in the kitchen and it was our first major attempt at being crafty behind the stove. At this point, we would like to publicly declare our gratefulness to Ah Yee, Auntie Eunice, and Rams for being our mentors...

REALLY RAD RUSS & RUTH
This post is a whole month late but better late than never! :) Our last merriment of the year 2012 was the very blessed union of Russell & Ruth. THEY’RE SO LOVELY, and they had one of the sweetest exchange of vows, our lips were severely quivering by the end of it and our cheeks were wet with tears we couldn’t blink back. A God-centred union, a beautiful union. *waves flag* How...

In Merry Motion x 1 year!
Today’s the first day of our second year In Merry Motion - what a year the past 12 months have been! Late nights of crafting and brainstorming that carried on into the nights, the new friendships made with beautiful couples, cutest babies and amazing vendors, and lastly, knowing that God was in absolute control throughout this entire journey so far. At this point, we’d like to...
Baby Blessings for The Cheery Cheongs!
Our journey with The Cheery Cheongs started in December last year when Kim Seng & Weishan got married after almost 10 years of courtship. Earlier in September, we were so thrilled to be able to design and craft a baby shower for Weishan who was expecting a baby boy! We secretly think it was just an excuse for the merry momma-to-be to have all her favourite people in the same room, sharing her...

In an earlier post, we posted some instagram-ed pictures of Kelly & Kevin’s really kickass wedding and we are finally back with some long overdue pictures! *confetti* Our morning at Alkaff Mansion started with grey, indecisive clouds but our amazing heavenly Father held them back after a while for us to scuttle about to set up the ceremony space. It was quite a mad rush from start to...

We started our weekend bright and early at 630am as we gathered under indecisive skies at Alkaff Mansion. But the rain certainly did not get in the way of the kickass kouple Kelly & Kevin.

Let your light shine,
Pretty pouf pins & beautiful girls. Happy weekend!
In Merry Anticipation,
June has been a restfully productive month for us; we worked out the technicalities of how we function while reflecting on our work over the past few months, and we made some baby steps towards developing our take on what celebrations mean to us. Very merry & exciting times are coming right up! We are very thrilled and a little scared but we are learning how to surrender all to Him...
A day of laughter & love.
To celebrate 10 years of ministry and service, LIFE SCC (Student Care Centres) organised a very special day for their students and their families. We are very delighted to have been given the opportunity to help dress the place up for this blessed event. Every single paper fan that you see was made by the precious children from the LIFE SCC. It was a wonderfully, blessedly...

Our belated #monday-merriment features our current eye-candy which happens to be a work from the milan design fair 2012. Designer Craig Alun Smith had planned to splatter the city with bird poopy in every colour of the rainbow by planting dyed bird feeders around the Piazza del Duomo. How exciting!

April then & April now.
It’s going to be a crazy month for us here at In Merry Motion… which kind of brings us back to April / May in 2011 when we were still in school, rushing to deliver our final year project. For Joyce, it has become a suppressed memory and we both still shudder at the sheer memory of camping in school with greasy hair and a heavy heart. We kid you not. (Also, please note our friends...
current eye-candy: knitted stools
What fun stools by Claire-Anne O’Brien! This takes knitting to a whole new level! I would love to sit on them; they would make an exciting tactile experience, not to mention reallllly comfortable.
