Black Milk Project Raya Collection

Here's a confession.

I have been stalking a mother on Instagram.

A mother who happens to be a very talented illustrator and designer for Black Milk Project, her very own canvas.

I was thinking to myself, since I have this platform, why not showcase Black Milk Project to all my lovely readers! Everyone has got to see her work, yes yes!
(If you are wondering why do I keep saying yes yes a couple of times in my posts, it's simply because I've watched Lisa Nichols videos one too many times, haha!!) 

After a few weeks of figuring out what to say, writing, scrapping it off and then re-writting again, then saving it in my draft folder (you get the drift) I decided to go for it and sent her an email. I kept delaying because I was trying to maintain 'I'm really a big fan but I don't want to end up sounding like a stalker' tone in a professional manner.
She replied! Yes she did, tee hee. 

Ms Wei Tieng, the founder of Black Milk Project, is one upbeat mummy, as she puts it  "who loves all things whimsical and quirky". By looking at her designs, I totally agree!!

Her son, BabyCruz, fuels her artsy hands. How adorable is he? Babies are one of the most precious inspirations you'll ever get. I personally believe so. They make you as dreamy and imaginary as they are until you come to a point and say why not?
Why not I do what I love and be merry.

Wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone did what they love. I feel like I'm going to break into a song.

I'm pretty tone deaf. It's not even funny.

Black Milk Project's mama does just that. She loves designing and BabyCruz drives her passion further. She has been doodling his pictures since he was born. Black Milk Project's Instagram has loads of BabyCruz's doodles, do check it out. She even has videos of her art in progress, it's only a few seconds but I love watching it coming to live.

That face!!! BabyCruz

There're plenty of companies designing customized rompers and tees out there, what is it about Black Milk Project that I love?
Besides the fact that I fully support mums who are trying to break from the office working cycle aka Mummypreneurs, Wei Tieng's designs are from the heart and some are even hand drawn.

Wei Tieng aims to have her designs fully hand drawn in the future. Currently Black Milk Project offers both printed and hand drawn pieces. You are free to brainstorm with her if you'd like your own design or choose one of her existing prints. 

Now let's talk Raya!!! 
I'm not a Malay, but I am a Malaysian.
A true Malaysian who loves celebrating wonderful festivals that we are blessed with from the ALL the different cultures in our very rojak land, hee.

With ketupats and pelikats in abundance, I'd like to introduce Black Milk Project Hari Raya Collection, featuring Encik Kuching!
Too cute. I swear.

These Jawi printed tees are one of my favorites. Simplicity at its best.
