Everyday Life

Been at Claire's for awhile, and it has been a whirlwind of an experience...Taking a breather day and leaving before the sun sets.. Even a ghetto building like this one can look quite decent with the sun accenting it's back...courtesy of my new iphone and a fun app to take pictures old school.

April Fool's!

I didn't pull any fun april fool's joke on anyone...I hope others were able to today...
Can you believe it's already been one year since this:

Happy Anniversary to my one-year old husband!

Has it already been that long?

I can't believe I haven't posted since the 1st of March. My bad...this month is flying.  Keeping busy with work, and work, and more work.  I drew this sketch for a project (for work), but since it's not being used, I thought I'd turn it into a papercut piece.  Still working on that, but i thought I'd post the sketch.  Can you tell what it is? 

Alice in Wonderland inspired...

Some stuff on the Claire's website

Finally! Some of the stuff I've been working on @ Claire's hit stores.  And they're looking pretty good~ If you go to the Claire's website and follow the link to "Alice in Fashionland" (I know, I know...) you'll see some of the prints I worked on for this group. Here's a shot of one of them.  I worked on the "black and red Alice" series.  (the bag and the girl's t-shirt to the right) I had to go buy a tote bag for myself, because I am a dork. haha.

there new favorite spot

Now kuro and shiro fight for this one basket.  Shiro (the white one) is slightly too big for it...we're going to have to get another one...we USED to use the basket for popcorn for those movie nights..but oh well.

A little angel under the Christmas tree.

our very own tea ceremony

I got a few belated wedding gifts from friends this past month, and I thought I'd share since they are such wonderful gifts....First up this delicious tea set and of course, awesome tea.  I've always wanted a blossom tea set!  And those cute round cups with the flowers are insulated, so it doesn't get hot to the touch at all.  Form and function; it's a beautiful thing.

papercutting: Round 3

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I made a few different new year's cards...including these precious 10 pieces below. I wish I had the time and patience to make more of them, but alas, life gets in the way. I could however, share pictures with you! I do believe these cards came out rather nice this year...a good start to 2010.

I rearranged the background paper slightly on each card, and I gotta say, I had much fun making these :D

A belated happy new year! papercutting: Round 2

I am still in shock that it's 2010. Where does the time go? I finally uploaded some of my photos from last year (sorry for the laziness).  It's been a small tradition of mine to make 'new year's cards' (kinda like Christmas cards, but for the new year), and  I decided to make a few different cards to give myself variety and to try out my new gocco machine.  A little handcutting and some beautiful washi paper, and voila! Happy Year of the Tiger!

My favorite are the white ones on the red back.  The metallic silver paint came out sharp on the white background,
and I found some nice paper to go with it.  :D Which one's your favorite?
