The Year of 2010

Each year is passing by as quickly as it can be, leaving nothing much to reflect and trace back. When you look at it, 5 years time of my life doesn't consider as a short period of time. Yet when I looked back where I was 5 years ago, every incident, tears and joy, obstacle and discovery had just slipped through my fingers like a gentle mild breeze, leaving only the memories.

Ever since a small incident in 2008, I told myself let's do something different and remarkable each year so that my years can be memorable. I have done some crazy stuffs in 2008 which I had never considered when I was younger but they are one of the major turning points to how I became who I am right now. In 2009, I have decided to further my study in Australia and open my first (and second) Etsy shops in 2010. Things are going so far so good as every single decision you have made might or might not effect the path that you will be going in the future. Yet every possibility in front of me is as mysterious as morning fogs and I just let my intuition guides me to wherever I should be going. Nothing is set in stone yet.
I'm more than happy to look at my progress in 2010, having closer friends by my side and loving them, get to know more about myself and finding my dreams. It's kinda sad to see another great year slips through the fingers soon but I'm looking forward to the new 2011 and hoping all of you would feel the same too :) As they said, A new year, A new start. The end of one journey, start of another.

Will be working harder in 2011 to get closer to my dreams! Here are some lovely newly added bookmark clip and whimsical stickers in the shops, Here & Here. Happy 2010!
& Good bye 2010 *soon*

I'm back & Merry Christmas To You

Finally, most of my matters are settled last week so I'm getting back to my usual schedules of making more artworks and updating blogs :)

A very exciting news came to me last night to freshen up my Monday. My interview with Unicorn Dream Magazine is published and they have put up the online version to their website! They are one of my favourite magazines because of their dreamy and delicate style. You can view the issue 4 Here.

The unicorn girl listening the falling snow is the illustration I made for them. Here is the little poem that comes a long:

In my dreams,
I woke up in the wood
Listening to the whispering snow

I hope you all love her as much as I do!

On the other hand, here is the second artwork I have done for my Cumulus Whispers series :) Sometimes I can't help but wonder will I show up in someone's dream when they asleep at night, a quiet and dreamy night like in the painting.

Christmas is around the corner and wishing everyone is enjoying their wonderful week . Can't wait for Friday night!! :)

Shop Updates

My full time job is getting busier and busier hence I have to miss few blog updates for these two weeks. Not to mention the new illustration that I have to keep her aside for a while... aiks! I feel sorry for her! Hopefully this tight schedule will loosen up after 17 December when the college holiday starts. I really respect those who can balance their time in multiple tasks well because really, it is not easy O_o Perhaps you need some good talent on time management and a good mood switch to change your concentration from A task to B task.

I made few new notecards sets from my whimsical bookplates illustrations. This is the second set - whimsical rabbit which is available at the shop
Here now.

Another few updates for yeevon's illustration shop Here. I love bookplates. I love how different artists design their own bookplates. Also, I enjoy making them and love the way they look on my books :)

Currently I'm working on some new whimsical illustrations for coming Spring. I might put them into greeting cards and stickers and few sneak peak will be coming up next week :)

Have a good weekend and Happy Holidays!

New Art Lockets & Pendant Necklaces

These beautiful brass lockets and pendant necklaces are handmade by heartworksbylori. She creates beautiful wearable arts and the illustrations are secured with glass-like resin for protection and shine effect. The moment I received them in my mail box, I was so delighted (and nervous) that I almost tore the box with my bare hands... hahaha!

I love them so much! My photos are not sharp enough but they are really really beautiful in real. I have even kept some for myself as early Christmas gifts~ hehe. They are available Here.

Another 19 days before Christmas =) Woo~

Mini Love Tags

New mini love tags had added to my shop last night but I was too sleepy to post them in the blog =p

I'm getting tired easily nowadays so I'm looking forward to take some break soon in middle/end of December. My last recharge was around September when I came back to Malaysia. So, I guess it is time for another one so I will have more energy to welcome the new 2011~ *2010 is ending soon!*
The tags come in a set of 6 or 50 and available in two colors: red or black. They are available Here. Also, there will be some updates for my illustration shop this weekend :) woot~

p/s: 6 more to 100 items =)

Have a wonderful week!
