I met Amy Ta of Seventh Tree Soaps at the East Is East Markets early this year where we had our stalls. Amy is such a friendly & bubbly lady; her aura is as attractive as the beautiful soaps she creates. After following each other on Instagram and Facebook, we happened to collaborate on something very fun for her soaps. I’ve gotten into a print obsession these couple of months, and what’s better than creating some prints for Amy’s soaps! I’m a little behind in this news, but some of the prints are now on some of Seventh Tree Soaps’ cute owl packaging! My prints are also available as gift wrapping at her lovely Etsy shop. Do visit and treat your body to some natural goodness!
Here are some of my random favourites from Etsy today. Not totally random though – there happens to be two embroidery hoop art and two leather items in here, hah!

In my previous Pin Favs post, one of the images was of a beautiful embroidery – which led me to a whole body of amazing embroidery works by Yumiko Higuchi, an embroidery artist from Japan. I’ve always been a huge fan of Japanese craftsmanship, and especially their attention to detail and high quality of work. Yumiko Higuchi’s works is the epitome of that. Here are just a handful of her works (from her Pinterest). Enjoy!
There are some new brooches in my Etsy store today – they are paper overlay brooches (kind of like decoupage) with my illustrations (houses & mushrooms). Hope you like it! :D
Whilst going through my Pinterest pins for a roundup of my favourites for today, I discovered there were quite a few botanical-related pins. So here are my favourites. :)

These past few months, I have been hard at work creating new products. It was exciting to finally debut them at the recent Finders Keepers markets – and this week, I’ve also listed all the new items on my Etsy store. Here are a few selections – if you like what you see, head on to my store! :)
My goodness! How did May fly by so fast?! And now we’re into the second half of the year already! May was a really fun month for me – there was my Melbourne trip, my birthday (although it wasn’t very fun, haha), working hard in preparation for the Finders Keepers markets, and the first night of the market itself. I think it all triggered something inside me to work even more and to be even more productive – let’s hope I can continue on with this productive-ness and not fall into procrastination mode again! :D
Here are some snippets of my May instagrams…enjoy!
