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!

IS HAPPENING TOMORROW NIGHT!
Sorry about the caps, I’m too excited! :D
It’s happening in less than 24 hours – I guess the reason why I’m so excited even though this is not the first time I’m participating is because it’s at a new venue – which is massive, and hence a lot more designers who are amazingly talented. I feel so awed by all the talents that will be surrounding me at the market tomorrow night and Saturday. If only I did not have to man my stall every single second, I would love to visit every stall and say Hi and make friends with the other designers – I always felt like doing that, but I’m a bit shy. ;) But this time, I’ll try my best to make more friends! <3
Here are some sneak peeks of what to expect at my stall at the Sydney’s FindersKeepers Market tomorrow (6-10pm) and Saturday (10-5pm). It’s a pity it’s only for 1.5 days – time always seems to fly by so fast!
Good Morning! :D
I am so so so ecstatic today because Whimsy Milieu is the featured designer on The Finders Keepers‘ lovely website today! Head on over and read the interview! Thanks so much to the wonderful people behind The Finders Keepers for the interview+feature! :)
I’m very excited to announce that Whimsy Milieu will be holding its first ever stall at the Finders Keepers Market. The Finders Keepers Market is an art and design market, dedicated to support indie and emerging designers and artists. It is a biannual event which started in Sydney and is now also happening in both Melbourne and Brisbane. The upcoming one in Sydney is on the 1st and 2nd June (Friday night and whole day on Saturday)…so for those of you who are in Sydney (or visiting Sydney that weekend), do come visit and drop by my stall to say ‘Hi’! :D
Right now, I’m pushing myself to produce stock to sell at the market – it is not very easy when you are the only person in your business – handling both the business and creative sides, and also millions of other things in between – but, I love what I do and I hope my products will bring happiness, fun, and a smile to the end-users.
During the market, I will be selling the whole Outré Forest Treasures collection, a new range of wooden rings (various shapes & colours!), a limited batch of hand-painted tea towels, and prints of my illustrations (including some new ones!).
Below is the market flyer from the Finders Keepers website.
People in Sydney – do not forget, keep either 1st or 2nd June free – visit the Finders Keepers Market – you won’t regret it!
