Happy Holidays!

We did a photo shoot for our holiday greeting card the other day. We really wanted the photo to have us all looking at the camera. Of course the challenge was with Haru. We didn't have a photographer so we used a self timer. It took forever to keep Haru's attention to the camera because the camera was about 5 feet away from us. It started raining and Haru started to shiver so we almost gave up to get the perfect shot, but a miracle happened. Haru kept looking at the camera!!!!! Of course we praised him soooo much after this;) Anyways, This year has been so wonderful to me and I really appreciate all of my family, friends and the new people I have met this year. Hope you have a great holiday and a happy new year:)

My annual project

Making mini calendars has been my personal annual project since 2009. I send calendars to my family and friends as a holiday greetings. Around summer time, I start conceptualizing and sketching when I have time. And in the middle of December,  I usually rush to finish it before new year. And I get lack of sleep lol... Everything is handmade, so it takes a lot of time. But I'm always very happy to see everyone using my calendar. I would like to continue this project as long as I can. My 2013 calendar which was designed with water color paint is almost ready to ship:)

Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco

I went to the Renegade Craft Fair over the weekend. It was packed with so many people!! I had so much fun and was inspired by many artists there. Hopefully I could join the fair as a vender sometime next year. Here is one of the things that I bought for my husband. This is called magic wallet created by Ryan Hansen from Magic Industrie. His wallets are made from vintage books, so they are all one of a kind. I was amazed when he explained how it works and I had to get it lol... My husband always carries loose cash in his pockets even if he has a wallet. So I thought it would be a perfect one for him:) He loved it!!!

Xmas tree

Almost X'mas! Beautiful decorations everywhere in the city. I'm now ready to decorate my house;)
