Blog Features... Thank you!

"Hat Peeps" print

My pal Kelly emailed me and let me know that my "Hat Peeps" print has been featured on the beautiful Creature Comforts blog as one of their Valentine's Day picks. What a nice surprise! Also, yesterday my blog was featured on Print and Pattern, one of my favorite source for inspiration. I am very flattered... : )

Interview at Dirty Laundry

My buddy Jeanee from Dirty Laundry has written an interview about me and the blog. She recently starts to do weekly interview of crafty girls on her blog; I am sure she will continue bringing inspirations to all her readers. Thank you, Jeanee! Click here to read the interview.

You have to check out Jeanee's adorable website, not because of the interview, but because of what she does. This girl does a million things... She is a full-time designer. She teaches Zumba at a local gym. She makes the cutest cupcake-shaped "Bath Fizzies" by hand; they are so unique and looks so good that you would want to eat them (but don't)! She also sews beautiful reversible aprons by order. On top of that, she is one of the funnies girl! Here is a photo of her Bath Fizzies; isn't it just so yummy?!

Free Calendar Wallpaper Download - January 2010

Free Desktop Calendar Wallpaper 1600x1200

Sorry friends, this is 2 weeks late... I am going to do one calendar wallpaper each month for you to download! I didn't lie when I said I need my sunny yellow fix... so January is going to be yellow! There are two different sizes: 1600x1200 and 1920x1080. I use a new iMAC, and the 1920x1080 wallpaper fits the screen perfectly.

Swirly Hair

Ah... I spoke too fast yesterday, and we didn't have 40 degree weather today, instead it was really foggy and cold. It's still winter after all. I need sunshine; I need lots of sunny yellow to cheer me up!

Crazy Happy Doodles

What captures the true spirit of Happy Doodle Land? This one does! It's a page full of little doodles taken straight from my sketchbook awhile back and then colored in Photoshop. It just reminds me that I need to find time, sit down with my pen and sketchbook and just doodle for the sake of it... : )

It's in my shop now.

It's snowing, again...

Snow again...

I don't mind snow; it makes everything so pretty. But honestly, I am tired of it already! We've been having really cold snowy weather since Christmas and all the snow hasn't melted yet. It's a mess everywhere on the street; I was stuck at home from last Tuesday till this Monday morning (only because I had to go back to work and I ran out of grocery). I feel like I'm in the movie "The Shining"! I saw my neighbor boys built an igloo in their front yard; kids are all loving it. NOT ME! I am so ready for spring to come! But it's only the beginning of winter, and on top of that, our temperature will hit record low this weekend!!! Ok, I am not even going ask for too much... how about giving me some 40-degree weather? That sounds so warm to me right now... Please?!!!

Who doesn't like a deal? I'd like to try something here... Even though my Etsy shop is only 2 weeks old, but it's a brand new year, and I've decided to revise my shop policy. From now on, if you buy 2 prints, you will get $5 off for the second one. So for example, one print is $20, two prints will be $35, three prints are $55, but four prints will be $70! Does that make sense?

Here is how to check out when you buy more than one print:
1. When you order more than one print, add items from my shop to your cart and start the check out process as usual.

2. Complete the order with Etsy but DO NOT go to PayPal to pay yet. (However, if you only wish to order one print, you can go ahead and check out with PayPal.)

3. You will receive a revised invoice (in your email linking to your Etsy account, so make sure the email address is correct) and a Paypal link to complete the transaction. The new revised invoice will reflect the discount.

I'd like to try this. And since I am still an Etsy newbie, let me know what you think! : )

New Art and New Year's Resolutions

How are you enjoying your first day of 2010? Do you have any new year's resolution? Mine is to go to bed early at 11:00PM (yup, that's early for me); it will be really hard for me, but I'd like to try my best. Also I'd like to eat healthier, exercise more, and care less about what other people think but focus more on my own inner peace... all for the sake of my health. What about you? No matter what your resolution would be, I hope your 2010 is filled with love, laughter, blessings and good health.

Also, here are a pair of new artworks for my Etsy to kick off 2010! Happy New Year, my dear! : )
