I just purchased UNICEF inspired gifts, 100 notebooks & 100 pencils, for Children who live in developing country. I should done this before Christmas... I will continue to raise funds for UNICEF and hope I can purchase a lot of inspired gifts for Children in 2009!
Thank you so much for all your support over the year!
Hope you all have a safe trip and a happy holiday!
I have to get a holiday gift for my niece but I still don't know what to
buy for her. Olivelse sells great handmade items for children and also I found some cute stuff, little bunny and felted acorns in her etsy favorites! So many great stuff, so I can't make any decision....
These are the progress of my new project. I found some scraps of hemp fabric in my closet the other day and I thought these might be still useful. Well, I bought this fabric in the spring and was making bags... Now these scrap fabrics turned to be coasters! I created dots as seeds...Are these too abstract? Most of fabrics are made out of plants, so.. I am going to add these coasters to my etsy store in New Year. I am thinking about 10% of the profits will be donating to an organization which they plant trees or flowers!
I went to the greenmarket this early afternoon and bought a succulent plant!
I just love it!!
++ I think it might be too late... but my friend, Jessica sent me the invite for a day of free art events in Jersey City. They're open till midnight. I have been there before and really enjoyed it. If you are around this evening, please check it out!
I have been selling desk calendars and holiday cards since last month. As I mentioned to you before, 10% of the profits will be donating to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and total amount of donation is $53.30 so far. I will keep going... probably until end of this year.
I am interested in purchasing "Inspired Gifts" for donation in Unicef. I am able to purchase 100 notebooks and 100 pencils for the amount I have made so far... !! Can you image if you don't have any notebooks or pencils? Oh, no I won't be able to draw anymore...!! There are some other inspired gift options; jump ropes, protein biscuits and polio vaccine... Does anyone have a good suggestion?
I just want to say thank you so much to my customers, friends and family who purchased my stuff and also my blog readers who always leave me some comments which are very helpful and encouraging me!!

I made a few boxes to put a small gift in the each box instead of using wrapping paper. I thought using a box + wrapping paper are just wasting....
The boxes which I made are small (2.5" x 2.5" x 1.25") but you can make
bigger one. I used 80lb drawing papers and these were nice thickness to make boxes. Here is an instruction how to make a gift box.
If you want to use this pattern, please feel free to email me. I will send you a PDF file. (I just don't know how to attach the file to this blog, so..)

I love cooking! I usually cook when I am at home. Bon Appetit magazine is one of my favorite magazines. I used to work there before as a freelance designer and I liked looking through all the beautiful photos of food...Here are their Thanksgiving recipes...
