Last Call for Giveaway!

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I'm doing a giveaway on Style Symmetry's blog...and the deadline is midnight tonight PST! So if you haven't already, click here to go to her blog and enter for a chance to win some of my tags! :)

Something to look forward to soon (for me, and hopefully for you too!), I'm in the process of creating tags that are slightly more detailed and intricate than what I have in the shop already. Tags that are more similar to mini art pieces than just...tags. Anyway, more on that later, now I gotta run to work!

Have a most wonderful Sunday afternoon!

P.S. I just scored a whole bunch of stuff at this amazing reuse shop near my house. It's called The East Bay Center for Creative Reuse. Their inventory changes often and sometimes you can find exactly what you're looking for (100s of mini clear glass vials?) for just a couple of bucks! If you live around this area, check it out!

As I was having breakfast this morning, I came across this very website that "translate" words into nightingale song. I love the colors and the style, I hope you enjoy it! Have a good night! :)

Cute Treasury!

Check out ViolentReaction's treasury:
Adorable items and they included one of my tags!

Anyway, I need to recover from my terrible cold and work! I was not able to take any time off work so I'm really looking forward to the next two days off.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Did you know that it's also Chinese New Year? Such an interesting weekend this year: Valentine's and Chinese NY on the same day, and falls on a long weekend this year because President's Day is tomorrow! If I had a regular job, I would probably go out of town and take a little vacation. I hope everybody's enjoying this little break!

Talking about Chinese New Year, I was presently surprised when I found that one of my tags are featured in a Storque article about the holiday on Etsy! Check it out here! :)

Anyway, I must go get ready for my 12-hr shift at the restaurant to make all the lovebirds happy...
Please be nice to your servers! We leave our loved ones everyday to serve and wait on hundreds of people and to make sure each and every one of them have an amazing dining experience. That said, have a wonderful Valentine's Day...

Valentine's weekend is finally here! What are your plans? I unfortunately have to work this entire weekend, so my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate on Tuesday instead.

Anyway, one of my valentines made an appearance at my friend's blog a week ago!

She also has a beautiful jewelry store on Etsy called Tapiseria. Have fun browsing! :)

Very Sad Day...

I just saw the news that the British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, has commited suicide and was found dead this morning. It's a very very sad day when someone so genius and innovative decides to leave this world. He has always been a great inspiration and influence for me ever since he emerged into the fashion scene in the 90s. May his legacy live on...

I'm about to have a very intense and busy work week at the restaurant, so I spent the last couple of days posting a few new items and doing a little update here and there. I came across another online handmade marketplace called Artfire. As a basic member, all the basic services are free, no listing fees..etc. Does anybody know anything about them? I want to know if it's worth it (time-wise) to also post items on it. Thanks!

Anyway, have a great rest of the week! :)

Yay! Two Treasuries!

I finally went to the gym today, for the first time in months! You would think that working at a restaurant is like a workout all the time, but no! When I got off the treadmill today, I was so dizzy and dehydrated! I felt like such a weakling! So when I sat down at my computer and found out that my tags are featured in two treasuries today, my energy level came right back up and I feel ecstatic!

I love looking at people's treasuries on Etsy. It's amazing when somebody can browse through thousands of items and come up with a cohesive collection to show! Every time one of my tags get featured, I feel so honored that they picked my items out of the thousands...

Anyway, enough about me, here are the links to the two very beautiful and adorable treasuries. They will expire on Saturday, so don't miss them! :)
This is cokiepopaper's kitchen-themed treasury: Click here.
and here is noabrumberg's (from Craftomania) sweet and adorable treasury: Click here.

Slightly Productive Day...

After much consideration and a little research, I finally heed Heather's (Blue Eyed Dragonfly Studio) advice and posted my bridesmaids cards in my Etsy shop. One of my biggest reluctance is that I'm currently not offering any other wedding-related products to make these cards a set. Since I'm not married, and never have been, I'm not sure if people customize these cards with their wedding invitations or it's a separate thing. I saw some bridesmaids cards on Etsy, and they seem to be their own thing, so I finally decided to give it a shot! Thanks Heather!

P.S. You can see some of these cards in the previous blog "Fun Project Ahead" or stop by my newly-arranged shop! :)

Trying a Little Beautification...

As I read other people's blogs, I often notice how many people customize their blogs and add many beautiful elements to match their styles. So, today I decided to give it a try and add a few things to this blog. Well, three hours later, I have concluded that either I'm really stupid, computer-illiterate, impatient, or all of the above, I only managed to add three little things to this thing! In fact, the whole experience drove me crazy!! So, I'm giving up this overly-ambitious endeavor as of right now!

On the bright side, as I was looking at other blogs to see where they got the templates and such, I'm very glad I found the, where there are many different beautiful backgrounds, tag sets, buttons and such. If only I knew more about these crazy computer stuff...
