News in the shop!!

I am going to update some of these for sell in my etsy shop (www.mykonos.etsy.com) later today.  These papers are really sweet and all are designed after motifs from 100 years ago and came from Germany.

Lovely package

February 26, 2008

Delicious or not?  All stuffs are lovely, especially the pair of wings, the wallpaper, flowers and laces.  I love the shapes of white!!

I am thinking how to improve the sell of my shop.  Do you have any ideas or suggestions?  I have been trying hard to promote my work on etsy and flickr but it seems not very efficient.

My shop name “Mykonos”

February 25, 2008

I have been asked by many people about where I come from lately.  It’s an interesting question and most of the people guess I am from Athens!!  I hope I am but actually come from Hong Kong. 

I choose “Mykonos” to be the name of my shop only for a simple reason, because I love GREECE!!  I love its ancient mythology, history, environment and buildings, I just love everything!!  I hope I could go there one day with my lover.

Gathering

February 21, 2008

Dinner with my best friend Lilac (of course with her baby little Grace) last night.

Short gathering but we are enjoying.  We talked about jewlery charms, supplies, other sellers on etsy….. and the jewlery line in my shop (www.mykonos.etsy.com).

Lilac gave me the red pockets (her first year) and she also bought me some pretty beads and pom pom supplies.  Thank you, Lilac you are so sweet!!  And I just sent her a package with a surprise!!

I know there are many awesome antique shop and flea markets overseas, but in Hong Kong, it is really hard to find antique stuffs (like those pretties I see on your blog!!)  My collection are all ordered from international (etsy, online or from you!!)

Oh, I want to fly to the antique shop/flea markets in the world!!

Glitter world

February 18, 2008

I am now working on glitter, mess in my room…..

I don’t have a studio like you (as my home is too small and I don’t have too much space to have a studio).  Actually I worked all things in my bedroom, and sometimes I really find the space is too small for me to work with. 

Hope I could have my own studio to paint and create my work in the future!!
