Thank You from the Bottom of my Heart

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone ♥
New added notecard sets to my paper good shop. These two illustrations are very dearest to me because they are the very first whimsical animals that I have drawn and they are the one who had inspired me to continue my forest animals theme until today :) Initially, they were in the mini notecard size but it is slowly running out right now. So I re-draw and have them into a bigger size notecards.
Great to show your appreciation to the ones you love and thank you so so so much for their support!
Have a nice weekend! and Happy Black Friday Etsy Sale~~!!

Just For You Tags / Oh, Butterflies on My Stomach Tags

New added handmade tags, featuring my illustrations of 'Just For You' and 'Oh, Butterflies on My Stomach'. I love the soft tone hues they have turned out which are really sweet and whimsical :)
Mr Bear is soooo shy *hearts*

Yesterday, I had added two new ribbon colors into my collections: a thin black and a deep olive green which look very classical. Nowadays, I bought paper materials and ribbons more than my clothes...

Valentine Notecards

I know it is a bit early for Valentine but showing affection to your loves one or simply telling them how much you miss them can be all-year-round :) Inspired by the love stories from whimsical forest couples, here are some notecards set and greeting cards for you to spread the love~

Just For You Greeting Card which is inspired by the memorable day when Mr Rabbit confessed to Mrs Rabbit. Talk about hot air balloon, rose and the person you love! I love the sweet romance between those two~
Another sweet greeting card "Oh Butterflies on My Stomach" about the moment when Mr Bear thinking of his misses (or honey!), there are always butterflies on his stomach... Mr Bear is blushing~!
Another of my lovely two, Mr & Mrs Fox and Mr & Mrs Squirrel also shared their love stories through "I see Stars in Your Eyes'' &  "It Feels Like a Dream" notecards sets :)
They are available at my paper goods shop Here. Hope you enjoy their love stories and I will be adding more throughout the month!

Let the Wind Blows

I love stargazing during the night. My mind always wandering here and there there while looking into the constellations (I can only recognize a few) and how the subtle moonlight makes the clouds glow. Those quiet and personal moments :)

A new illustration series inspired by what I love, named "Cumulus Whispers". This is the first illustration for the series, "Let The Wind Blows" which available Here.
A short glimpse on what I had been working on during the weekend.
Gosh, so that's the end for my weekend O_o

Mr Bear Notecards

Launching few more whimsical notecards set about Mr Bear's favourite past time today.

Being the new member of whimsical family, as gentleman as he can be, Mr Bear still unable to resist the temptation of one of his favourites (beside the berries): the honey. Often we caught him invites himself over to the bee's house party and keep most of the honey (in fact, all) to himself. If you need some favor from him and berries are no where to find, use honey!
Apart from that, he always enjoys his afternoon tea under the tree, having some home baked cookies to go with the Earl Grey. Well, that's our Mr Bear!
They are available at my shop Here.

Inspirational Artist - Kei Acedera

I wish I could find more words to describe how fascinated I am towards the beautiful and whimsical artworks created by Kei Acedera but I think her artworks themselves speak much louder =p. Her imaginative characters created with delicate pencil strokes and soft pastel hues had lured me into her world of fantasy :) There is something very sweet exists within her artworks that makes me happy. More of her artwork Here and know more about her through the interview with Randall Sly Here.

Tags for Tuesday / New Schedule

Months ago when I just started my blog, I had set myself a schedule that I would have new illustration on every Tuesday, Inspirations on every Wednesday, Notecard for Thursday and some Sneak Peak on Sunday. Somehow along the way I was distracted by other projects and the schedules were all mixed up (some went missing) except for the Inspirations Wednesday.. XD

But then again, they are back! But just a little bit difference as I'm going to have new tags on Tuesday (something new in my shop, I think I really obsessed with the ribbons and papers!) and new illustration during the weekend. The new schedules are as follow:

Tuesday: New tags
Wednesday: Inspirations
Thursday: Notecards
Weekend: illustration

Hopefully I manage to stick to it until the end of 2010!

As for Tuesday, here comes the new tags.

You can write 'To' and 'From' on the tags as there are plenty of space. I think they kinda look good on children's presents~ They are available Here.
The other day, Vanilla (check out her blog Here) has tagged me to write 7 things about myself and then pass along to someone else:

1. I enjoy daydreaming and often find myself giggle when there's no one around.
2. If I could, I would like to spend my time watching the clouds during the day and stargazing during the night. Something that I can relax myself.
3. I have a dog named Max.
4. I like less complicated things.
5. I used to keep a small sketchbook about my dreams.
6. One of my favourite artists is Audrey Kawasaki.
7. I wish to be more successful!
Hence, I'm going to tag Amalia, Melody and Viana. I hope they don't mind O_o

Happy Tuesday!

Mr Bear - New whimsical family member

Welcome the new member  of the whimsical family - Mr Bear! I could have thought of a better name or perhaps I could call him Mr Grizzly Bear but he is nothing close to the magnificent and mighty Grizzly Bear. Instead, he is very gentle and often enjoy his quiet afternoon napping under the shades or brew himself a cup of Earl Grey tea!

There will be more of his stories along with other whimsical family members :) Currently the print and new notecard sets are available Here. Happy Weekend~!

Inspirations - Sweet Bestiary

I have been looking into badges lately as they are simple accessories that can give a new look to my existing clothing, which I have been wearing over and over again. My clothes are usually plain and simple so something unique and not too complicated would be better :) These little special brooches are made by Flor Panichelli from Sweet Bestiary. Each of the artworks is hand-sculpted and they are unique from each other :) They are really cute especially those little human wearing the animal mascots~

A glimpse into the making process through the artist's blog Here.

Aren't they lovely :D
