Chinese New Year Inspiration

Chinese New Year is early this year... It's will be on the 26 & 27 Jan.. Here in Singapore, we get 2 days of holiday *yippee!* Although, this year I will have to give out red packets to my single / unmarried relatives *sulk :( * Yes.. it is a tradition for the married folks to give out red packets (with money of cos!) to the single / unmarried relatives.. I think I will just limit to children only (as long as they are still studying).. haha :)

Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays.

In celebration of the coming Chinese New Year, I am inspired to gift wrap all the orders made in my Etsy shop in Red Packets! How fun is that! :) This is only valid for those orders made in the month of January!

I have also made this new pair of earrings. Hopefully it will bring out Chinese New Year festive mood in my Etsy shop. What do you think? :)
