LISTERINE® Bloggers Dare: Week 5

with 16 comments

Do you guys remember the show Art Attack?

For those too young to remember, the host Neil Buchanan would teach kids all these cool art projects they could do with just everyday household items. I used to love the show and would try to make some of the art myself, though I was no Picasso.

The beauty of Art Attack is he would always say “It doesn’t have to be perfect!” which resonated with me even as a kid. The fact that the objective was in the experimentation, in the trying and failing and just having fun, I think I never stopped believing in those things.

I thought that it’d be a great idea to revisit a childhood favourite with a project of my own, INVISIBLE LETTERS.

Psst: Our challenge this week was to make someone smile, and I hope my little tutorial managed to get you smiling! Thank you for all the positive comments about my videos and posts, I’ve been using the LISTERINE Bloggers Dare to take little steps towards a new, more creative direction for my blog and my life which I hope to be able to sustain – so all the support is greatly appreciated!

If you would like an INVISIBLE LETTER from me, just leave a comment with your email address and I’d be happy to make you one! (:

Hi  everyone!

Remember the chai&biskut giveaway I did two weeks back? Well, here are some photos of the packages I put together. I’m a rather bad present wrapper so I’m actually proud of these babies, hehe.

chai&biskut giveaway 1!

with 42 comments

Thank you to all for being super supportive of me for this whole LISTERINE Bloggers Dare thing!

For regular readers of my blog, you might have noticed that I’ve been pushing myself a little more in terms of doing creative posts. Every week I try to do something different, something creative, that’s still in keeping with the chai&biskut spirit, and I hope I have not let you down in this regard.

As a symbol of thanks, I would like to send a little something sweet your way! It’s chai&biskut’s very first giveaway! I have to keep it a surprise for now, but I promise that you’ll like it! I love getting something in the mail, don’t you?

Unfortunately I can only pick 5 people (due to limited resources), so if you would like to enter this giveaway this is what you have to do:

1) Leave a comment with your name and email address

2) Bonus points if you write it in haiku form! (5-7-5 form)

Eg. “Shakespeare I am not/Nor Keats, Shelley, Plath or Donne/Green eggs and ham, Sam?”

The haiku can be about anything at all, be as creative as you can!

3) Vote for me!

(ok ok, so this isn’t really a requirement, I just added it in for good measure! Hehe!)

I will choose the 5 most creative comments as the winners. Contest will close on Tuesday, 11am.

Note: This giveaway is sponsored by me and is not part of the Listerine challenge, however, I will feature the giveaway during my Week 4 post!
