Working on the 2012 calendars

It’s already the end of October, and I started thinking about some designs of the 2012 calendars 🙂  Well, there are so many other things which have to be done, but I reeeeally wanted to make calendars today!  I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved calendars 🙂  When I was in Japan I used to go to the nearby LOFT  and got so excited to look around super cute and colourful calendars for the next year!!

Anyway, I finally finished designing this evening and prepared all the materials I needed like calendar tabs, glossy paper, lamination pouches…etc.  I was all excited at the beginning, but!  It wasn’t as easy as I thought and took ages!  I hope I can finish them tomorrow so I can take photos and put them up in my shops.

But before that, I’m gonna have to run to the craft store once again tomorrow morning to buy a tool for the metal eyelets I’ve already bought.   I didn’t know that I needed a special tool to apply them onto paper!

I will announce it here once I put these calendars up in my shops 🙂

I created these characters called Sushi Boy & Sushi Girl a while back, and I decided to make a notebook & stickers set using those characters 🙂  I’ve been quite busy these days, but I managed to put it up in my online shop just now.  Phew!

New geisha girls painting on A4 size paper

Gosh, my hotmail account suddenly got blocked yesterday morning and it’s still blocked!!  I’m in big trouble now as I use that account for a lot of my online business.  I’ve tried everything to unblock the account but none of them worked 😦  Now I’m waiting to hear from msn (I asked a question in their forum), but are they really going to reply to my question??  (I hope they will!!)  It’s been super frustrating, but the only thing I can do now is to stay

P A T I E N T…!!  Agrrr!!!

Anyway, even though I’ve been feeling really stressed out because of that, I completed one painting yesterday for the upcoming exhibition 🙂























I’ve done some similar ones in the past, but this one is done on A4 size paper.  I usually use A5 size paper (it’s quite small), so compared to my other paintings this one is really big.  I  mounted it on gold card first (slightly bigger than A4 size) and then mounted it on A3 size black card, so it looks like it’s got a gold border around it.












It looks pretty nice in a new frame I bought today, and I wish you could see it too!
