I can't believe 2008 is here tomorrow! Wow, what a year... I just want to thank you everyone who supports MAUstudio. It was definitely a fun and fullfilling year. I was able to do a few more craft shows, did a lot of promos and turn my shop into a consignment shop, which I'm really proud of.

keroppi and friends, originally uploaded by three green apples.

When I saw this pouch from Three Green Apples, it remind me of my childhood. Keroppi was one of my favorite character from sanrio. I used to collect Keroppi theme stationery such as notepad, pencil, eraser, etc. I think I'm getting old...jk : P


Fishy & Bunny

I can't help myself saying "awwwww!" when I saw this print from Elle Bee Photography.

DIY Trunk Show Chicago

Here are some pictures from the DIY Trunk Show Chicago. It was a cold and rainy day, but the crowd still kept coming. It was a great show and definitely had lots of fun. That's me with my table above.


Funky Finds

Thanks Jessica for this great feature! Check out Funky Finds



It was so sad today to find out that my parakeet will probably be dieing soon. She has a tumor growing on her chest for a while now. In the beginning, we thought she ate too much and was getting fat, lately, it was growing at a rapid pace that it's starting to prevent her from moving around. It is so sad to see, so I took her to the vet this morning. The doctor say that she won't be able to remove it because there aren't enough skin to close the wound afterward. All we can to is to let it live happily for as long as she can and when it gets to the point that she can't eat, we have to put her to sleep. Sniff...sniff...I've been crying all morning.

We watched her grow ever since she was still an egg, and we hand fed her. Her mom was a sweetie too and passed away a few years ago, and now "BABY" will be leaving soon, so sad. "BABY" is such a cutie, she is pure yellow color with red eyes. She has one brother and sister which we gave away to friends. She loves getting pet on the head and cheek and make this cute little chirping noise to show me how she is enjoy being pet. I need to go back to work to get my mind off it, otherwise I'll start crying again.

Tomorrow is the DIY Trunk Show in Chicago, I'm so excited. I'm hoping for a big crowd and do lots of business and meet lots of you who live in the area and to meet other awesome artists/crafters. Don't forget to stop by and say "HI". For more information, you can look at my earlier blog post or go directly to DIY Trunk Show Website.

Comedy and Craft Show

I had a nice weekend meeting with some friends on Saturday. We went to a nice cozy Korean restaurant name "COZY" and had a nice dinner. I ve never really had a lot of Korean food before, and it was good to try them. We then head over to downtown and saw a Comedy Show, which was excellent. So that's my day well spent with friends, which I haven't had lately because I was busy getting ready for shows.

Sunday, bright and early, I head out for the Handmade Crafted Market at Durty Neilles restaurant. The place was nice and in a good neighborhood. There were so many talented designers/artists there, and the show was very different from the ones that I've been doing locally. Almost everyone there has an ETSY shop, yah, they know what I'm talking about! I had a chance to meet and had a nice talk with a few artists there and share our experiences. Hey, networking is an important part of the business, and it was fun doing it! So there goes my weekend with lots of excitement... and then now, back to work.

Family Day

So a few weeks ago, a friend drove 2 hours here just to visit, I was really happy. Not many of my friends come visit me because I live a little out of the way. Anyway, we came up with this idea of going apple picking and I knew there was one not too far from where I live, so I decided to go with my parents and brother there to see if it's nice and I can later go apple picking with my friends again. It was a family day, haven't had one of those in a while ever since I started working, it was definitely fun. See all the yummy apple, and of course, can't forget those delcious apple donuts.


Let's Party!

It's always nice to hang out with a group of friends and just chat and play some pool, card games, etc. Who would have thought of using pool ball to make jewelry? The thought has never occured to me, but it's definitely an awesome idea. See for yourself! These awesome rings are from Pool Pall Ring, they are hand carved from a used pool ball, so each one is one of a kind.

I just love turtles, especial sea turtles, they are especially cute. When I see these turtles by namolio, I can't help myself but to mark them as my favorite. Cute! Cute!

Interesting find from ETSY

So I was browsing ETSY and saw these interesting brooches from Keri Rounding. They are unique in shapes, definitely difference from many wool brooches that I've seen. I love textures and these brooches remind me of plants and nature. Love the color as well!

bubble bag by Luii Accessories

bubble bag: red/aqua
Originally uploaded by luiiaccessories
Aqua is one of my favorite color, as you maybe able to tell from my jewelry that, many of them are aqua color. I don't usually think of aqua and red would go together, but this bag from Luii Accessories make the aqua color pops and the floral prints in the middle just enhance the design of this bag. Cute! This bag would go well with a casual outfit as well as a more sophisticate look.


Giveaway Goodies from Spadazzle, Family Rocks & Coming Abstractions

Here are some more giveaway goodies for you to see, if you haven't yet visted my website yet. Spadazzle sent us these notecard sets, they are so cute. Spadazzle's artworks are hand painted acrylic collages in bright and fun colors and then turn them into notecards, checkbook cover, bookmark, etc.

Family Rocks create these earrings for our giveaway. They are made with wire and crystals. They are simple in a way that it's unqique. I haven't seen earrings in in these shapes, most of the time I see earrings bend in spiral form or wirewrap. These are simple but cool!

Coming Abstractions sent us this fused glass ACEO, it's a piece of art. Do you know what an ACEO is? ACEO are mini artworks pieces that people collect, they are about baseball card size. They are usually original or printed artworks. I never thought of a glass ACEO, what a neat idea! In addition to that, A Key People Pendant was sent and it comes with a ball chain, so you can wear it as a necklace. It's definitely another amazing piece of artwork.
