Merry Christmas

Christmas is here!!! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from our home to yours.

I almost didn't make any Christmas cards this year; but here they are! Unfortunately, I sent the cards out a bit late so it might not reach its destination in time. Ah well...

My card is published

The card above was selected to be included in Laura McFadden & Deborah Baskin's 1000 Handmade Greetings: Creative Cards and Clever Correspondence! I haven't seen the book in person yet but will definitely make the trip to Barnes & Nobles when I have a chance.

Handmade Greetings rock!

A Musical & Fine Dining

Our Anniversary was spent dining at Jean Georges Perry St. followed by one of the hottest Broadway shows, In the Heights. The food was yummy and the show was spectacular! We really enjoyed it. Even though we live in NYC, we don't venture out much to all those things that all the tourist flock to NY to do. Yet when we travel, we do everything a tourist would and more! I guess we really do take it for granted; that everything is within reach so we often push it off. We really shouldn't think that way. We miss out on so much this great city has to offer. I hope we can indulge a bit more in the New Year and enjoy all the shows, art galleries and museums.

3:39 am

It's 3:39am and I ought to be asleep but I just spent the last 2 hours trying to figure out how to do something. I got my hubs to help me and finally got it to work; to learn immediately after that there was a much faster shortcut. At times like these, I feel like such a flake. Ugh!

Ah well whatever. Tomorrow will be a better day because the hubs and I will be celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary! That's a freakin' decade my friends! We're very excited. I'll update more after our Anniversary Date.

Etsy Shop Local in Asia

I just read this fantastic article about Etsy Sellers selling across the world, specifically Asia - Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Phillipines, South Korea and Malaysia. It's so great to learn that there are such creative folks all the way across the world from me. It also heightens my interest on travelling abroad to Asia. I've only been to Japan so far and would love to visit as many Asian countries as I can. I already have plans to visit Hong Kong (where I was born) and Thailand in 2010. I seriously can't wait!

A few of my favorites from the article:

Handmade Holiday Calvalcade Hosted by NewNew

The NewNew's first Holiday Show happened on Saturday. From what I heard and saw, it was highly successful. I kind of regret not selling with my teammates, but I knew I had too much going on. I am so proud of my teammates and am hyped up to join the fun next year!

I asked my husband to take the photos (gave him something important to do while I chatted with most of the sellers.) I tried to get to everyone but it was a bit overwhelming and we had to get back to our metered car. Sorry if I missed a few of you.

Packed with buyers!
