Latte the sheep

Winter is coming. The Hong Kong Observatory predicts this winter in Hong Kong will be a long and cold one. It's bad news. We don't have heater at homes, in offices nor in public transportation. We wear thick layers of clothes even indoors. The scarf is an indispensable thing for me in winter, keeping my neck warm makes me feel so much better. This "warming the neck" thing inspired me to creat Latte the sheep. Latte is like a projection of me in winter - thick layers of fibers covering my body especially around the neck. Creating Latte or simply watching it makes me feel warm already.

Latte charms and pins are now available in my etsy shop

Vintage wood blocks

These small wooden blocks are my recent purchase from beautifulliving of etsy, they have an alphabet printed on 1 face of each block, leaving 5 faces blank so I can do whatever I want on them. By using Japanese patterned masking tapes and alphabet stickers I created name blocks for my Latte and Mocha (my new creations).

Porcelain ring and OPI nail color

My new OPI nail color matches sooooooo well with this porcelain ring!!! This ring was made from a porcelain flat back bought from etsy shop SEAURCHIN a few months ago. After applying my turquoise nail color, I searched inside my jewelry box for a matching ring, this one popped up at once. This combination is really eye catching. I received compliments from strangers on the streets.

My first FRONT PAGE on etsy

Today when I checked my etsy account, I'm surprised by a sudden increase in the number of people who added me to their circle. Then I opened a message who thanked me for including his/her item on front page treasury.... FRONT PAGE?? Did I read anything wrongly? Front page? When did I make a front page? I checked the treasury this seller refers to, then I saw lots of people leaving congratulation messages and mentioning FP!!! I was so excited!! My first FRONT PAGE!!!

My etsy shop stamp

Nozomi Crafts has its own stamp finally!!
My hand writing sucks, even teachers have openly criticized my handwriting during class. I don't know why I cannot control the pen nicely when writing, but can control the pen very well when drawing. Something must have gone wrong inside my brain. Writing a beautiful "Thank you" note to customers is not easy for me, I really don't want to show my aweful handwriting to my dear customers. Therefore I tried to find "someone" to write for me and I found MY RUBBER STAMP etsy shop . Their "thank you" stamp is beautiful!! The birdie stands elegantly on the "T". Moreover I can add my shop address beneath the "thank you", that is perfect for my customers!! I used my "thank you" stamp on vintage looking gift tags, and these lovely gift tags will accompany every parcel I send out to customers.
