Buzz Buzz Goes the Bee

I was so thrilled when a buyer told me that she found my shop from the awesome site / blog! The blog post was regarding a selection of bee related jewelry. I love all the pieces selected. One of which is my "I LOVE Goth-loli Kitty Necklace". Can you spot it?!

I didn't even know that bees were hot this year! :P

Have you ever had a sale that was "triggered" or "referred" by a blog feature?! For me, it's my 2nd time. Both times, the blog feature wasn't deliberate i.e. I didn't pay or ask the author to feature my work.

How about you?

Rabbits, Bunnies & Hares....

Sorry for not updating the blog world for quite a bit. I have been a bit tied up at work (day job). But I was really happy today. I listed something this morning and it was SOLD by lunch! :) *happy*.

It's my Peek-A-Boo Rabbit necklace. I think bunnies are going to be HOT this year. Probably due to the coming Alice in Wonderland movie (to be released early March). I can't wait for that movie to be out. Till then, big look out for more rabbits, bunnies & hares ... esp the white ones.. keke :)

What do you think of them?

What's in Your Shopping Bag?

It's Sunday and I went shopping with a fellow crafter & friend from Hong Kong! Charmaine was dropping by Singapore on her way back home. We had a great time checking out the supplies shop and stationary / packaging shops.

I got this cute mug. Ain't it sweet? I can't wait to use it. I love the cute red riding hood character. Reminds me of my Red Riding Hood necklace.

What do you think? Did you buy anything today?

Tagged!! - 10 of my Favorite Things

I was tagged by Nicole sometime ago to do a blog post about 10 of my Favorite things. So here goes, not in any order!

  1. Macaroons - I simply LOVE LOVE them. So light & tasty treats. The really good ones are quite expensive in Singapore. Nevertheless, I can never control myself to get some every time I walk pass a Macaroons / Pastry shop. My favorite flavor is Hazelnuts!

  2. Souffle - This is another French dessert that I simply must have if it is ever on the menu. I recall visiting a restaurant in Paris which specializes in Souffles. They have the savory ones which we do not get in Singapore.

  3. Sex & the City - Even though the TV series has stopped running and the movie is out. I still love the show and somehow you never get tired of watching them over and over again. Even if it is just to check out the fashion, bags & shoes. :)

  4. God - HE is my everything and without him, nothing around me would matter and anything is possible with Him by my side.

  5. My Hubby & Family - He is my life partner and best friend. He makes me laugh & giggle like a little girl. We share everything (almost) and I thank #4 for making him mine. Family (mum, dad, in laws, siblings) is always something close to my heart.

  6. Pigs - Love them since I was little. I think they are just adorable whether they are babies or adults. Thus my shop name I guess.

  7. Moscato or Ice Wine - My favorite drink. I can drink this all night long...

  8. Music - I am always humming a tune, whether I am walking along the street or having a shower. I love music of all genres but rock, alternative, punk, jazz, house & chill are some of my favorite.

  9. My bed - The place that I spend at least 7 hours in. Got a nice king size one that is simply divine.

  10. My Car - I don't owe a very fancy car (I drive a Toyota Altis) but I simply can't live without having one after driving for so many years. Even though Singapore is a small country. The convenience is something that I have gotten used to and taken for granted sometimes :P Although now I have to share it with my hubby.. kekek :)
Not sure how many of mine are also your favorites.. but do share yours.

Favorite Words

I was just reading the latest Quit Your Day Job Series on Etsy and I found something in common between Laura and I.

Our favorite words when checking emails first thing in the morning : "Etsy Transaction"

I couldn't agree more.

How about you? What are your favorite words? :)
