Holidayland Event

I've been so busy between my full-time job and creating my tags for the holiday sale event that just leave me completely exhausted! But I feel extremely lucky and elated to have this opportunity. Please check out the beautiful flyer from the Compound Gallery in Oakland about the event.

Wow! An Invite!

I have just been invited to sell my work at a holiday exhibit/sale event called "Holidayland" at the Compound Gallery and Blankspace Gallery in Oakland! I'm so extremely excited! It also means that I have to work extra hard to produce hundreds of my handmade tags by mid-November. The event will run from November 27-December 20. So for those of you who live in the Bay Area, I hope you'll have a chance to drop by and perhaps find something extraordinary by an amazing artist!

New Ideas

Since I was a kid, I've always loved to sew and made paper stuff, so I thought, hey! why not marry the two things? Thus, my newest tags were borned! I experimented with the first one a few days ago, and it turned out beautifully. Furthermore, thanks to daniellexo, an Etsy Admin, my photo of that tag was the cover picture of her article, "Seller How-To: Tag-o-rama With Descriptive Keywords": As you can imagine, I was very excited about it! It's a great way for people to learn the existence of my little shop, and get some exposure!

Anyway, I have since been working on my 'stitch on paper' tags. So far I have come up with 3 more designs that I love, of which I'll be posting on'm hoping to come up with several more, in time for the holiday seasons. In addition to these more complicated tags, I'm also including some more basic tags for those who like to decorate their own tags. So hopefully I have something for everybody!

After I opened my shop, foxes and robbers, on etsy in sept, I was really worried about how others would view my work. I have always done art and design things in little ways here and there my whole life, but to actually put it out there for the world to see, critique, and try to sell them on top of scary. Now that it has been 3 weeks, I'm happy to say that everything is going better than I expected. So far, I have received many positive comments, advice, and encouragements from other sellers in the forum, and I've made 2 sales! Gotta start somewhere, right?

If anybody happen to stumble across this blog today, I'll be posting more items in my shop,, the next couple of days...

Anyway, I would like to thank everybody who checked out my shop, hearted me or my items, and even bought from me! It is a great pleasure to be able to share my love and vision with people who finds my creations as special as I do.
