Hello 2018!

January 20, 2018

Hello friends! wishing you all a very happy new year. Hope you guys had a nice holiday with your friends and family. I had a great time with my family and get to visit lots of my cousin's home. Last year really good for me and i was able to try and do things that wouldn't have done otherwise.

I want to create more Amigurumis and maybe publish some patterns this year. Let's see if i'm able to accomplish it. The little bee girl below is one of my first finished project of the year. Do you guys like it?


This doll is now available in my Etsy shop if you like to have one :)
Also i got some cute little boxes to pack my orders and i love that these boxes fit my dolls very nicely.




So what have you been up to? May this year brings and all the prosperity and success. Have a fantastic year ahead!

Hello december!

December 19, 2017

Hello people! a very happy December to you all. I really love this time of the year. Have you guys started decorating the houses for the holiday season. I'm yet to start with the decorations and looking forward to set up the tree with my family. Before that, i'm trying to finish up my shop orders.
I'm happy that i decided to open a Etsy shop this year. I'm learning with each orders and hopefully i'll be able to improve in the coming year.


Anything related to unicorns seems to be selling well this year. I'm happy to know that people liked these Caticorns as much as Unicorns. The only drawback of setting up an etsy shop is that i don't get much time to blog and interact with my fellow blogging friends. Hopefully i'll soon learn trying to juggle between blogging and Etsy


Have a joyful December everyone :)
