It's been a long time since I suck on a lollipop. I remembered that it was always a treat to buy a Chupa Chups from the lollipop stand near the cashiers. The lollipops were wrapped with brightly yellow & red colors.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found these charms! They are so brightly colored and adorably cute! They are Chupa Chups licensed merchandise charms (not some cheap fake goods). I only managed to grab 8 and I am keeping 1 (or maybe 2) for myself!

Available in yellow, orange, blue, purple, clear & pink colors. I will list them progressively.. Do check them out!

Treasury West - Little Red

I am honored to be including in another Treasury West collection again! It's great to be loved! This special collection is called "Little Red" by umemavi. It features a selection of all things relating to "Little Red Riding Hood". I am thrilled to be included.

Here are some of my favorites.
  1. Japanese sewing set - little red riding hood by Noei
    - I think this will make a great present to someone who LOVES to sew. I love the cute purse which can also be used as a coin pouch after the sewing materials have been used.

  2. Little Red Riding Hood Mary Jane Shoes - Size 5 by emandsprout
    - These shoes are just SUPER adorable. I love the ribbon detail, cute eyes & rosy cheeks.

  3. Little Red Riding Hood. Necklace by piggy
    - Last but not least my cute red riding hood necklace. I love those boots & the stunning cherry blossom bead is a nice touch.

Unclaimed Items

Overall my years of selling online, I sometimes come across "unclaimed" parcels that were returned back to me. Most of them were returned because they were left in the post office "unclaimed".

My next steps are usually to inform the buyers that their purchased item was returned back to me and if they require them to be resent, additional postage costs will be required. Most of the customers will reply and I will resend the item.

However, there are some that DO NOT reply, and I end up stuck with these items.
  • What should I do with them?
  • Should I resell them?
  • How long should I wait before I "resell" these items again?
  • Have you experienced this before? What would you do?

Apologies for the delayed blog, I just came back from my work trip to HK. I was so excited during the past weekend becos my cuff bracelet was featured on the Etsy mailer which caused a sudden surge in demand / sales for this bracelet. *happy*

I was even more thrilled to find out that my Tiffany inspired aqua chalcedony earrings are featured on the "Inspired by Tiffany Co" treasury by SeaPinks.

Is Your Marriage Fireproof?

7 Deadly Sins - Wrath

I wanted to blog something happy initially as I finally got over my Monday blues. But something happened to me today that compel me to blog and get some feedback from my blog friends.

Million Dollar Qn
Have you ever gotten to ANGRY with a customer that you REFUSE to do business with them?

For me... YES I have gotten angry with some customers but to the point of not ever doing business with me, NO. I think customer service is very important personally and no matter how angry we may be due to unreasonable or ridiculous customer, it still pays to be polite and objective. I tend to "play the ball not the man".

What do you think?

What happened you might ask?
I was asked by a friend to inquire about an item from this seller. My friend told me that this seller has not been responsive to her so things might be different if I was the one asking since I am a fellow crafter and I have not conversed with this seller before etc.

Anyway, things went on great and I was going to purchase 2 items, 1 for my friend and the other myself (yes I was tempted to get something for myself). As my friend wanted to pay via another mode of payment, I thought it may be more convenient if there were 2 listings and my friend can just purchase it herself. After that last convo, I got a reply asking me to tell my friend to refrain from contacting them any more whether it was via her directly or proxy.

My reaction : What the Fxxx?

Mellow Yellow

I have these lemonade chalcedony for quite some time now but never got the inspiration to work on them. Today, I made a necklace & earrings set. My very first set! What do you think? I must say, I hate taking photos of anything yellow, for some reason, the photos never turn out as great as I want to. *sulk*.

Hopefully you will be able to see the beauty in these jewels through these photos as I see them in real life.

I just came back from my primary school (from age 7 - 12) friend's wedding dinner. The dinner was delish. The menu was not the usual Chinese dinner (8 / 9 course of auspicious Chinese meals including shark fins, mushrooms, fish, noodles). Instead if was a variety of local (Singaporean) cuisines.

Here's what I had. Of cos, it is presented individually with a more classy setting.

  1. Bak Kut Teh
  2. Chilli Crab with Man Tou
  3. Steam Cod Fish
  4. Laksa
  5. Kebabs
  6. Cheong Fan
  7. Nonya Kueh

It's great to be included again in a Treasury. It's the 2nd time this week. God is good to me. *beam*. My Red tulips drops wAdd Imageere featured in Kugey's Red Tulips are so pretty treasury.

Here are some of my favorites.
  1. Beautiful Red Tulip Card by BedermannArt
    I love the red tulip against the gray/black background. It really makes the photo pop! Also, it's a great change from the expect-able rose to the beautiful but less featured tulips.

  2. Abstract Rembrandt Tulip Original Drawing by ellemardesigns
    This drawing did not capture my heart at first sight. However, as I look deeper into the picture, I noticed the intricate designs and patterns of the leaves & tulip flower. Gorgeous.

    Lastly my beautiful drop earrings that are available in 9 different colors. I love these Lucite flowers beads that are just fun and beautiful to work with.
