About My Mother

My mother is my partner in crime when it comes to crafts. She loves to knit and work with paper as well. I set up a store for her knits and my other craft products at Since her early retirement due to her weak health she didn't know what to do with her time. Then I told her about Etsy and how she can make things to sell to other people. So she started to knit some scarves, hats, and most recently, baby blankets. She loves to knit because she feels like a regular person again instead of just mulling around doing nothing at home. Her previous occupation was just too stressful for her but knitting soothes her soul. I hope to sell more of her work so she can continue to knit.

Here are some of her latest works:

Pastel Headband
Pastel Hats
Pastel Scarves

Last minute holiday sales

We had a potluck yesterday in the office at my day job. I decided to bring in some cards and jewelry and sold quite a few items to my surprise! I sold two pairs of earrings, four mini holiday shaped tags with handmade envelopes, and 9 holiday note cards with handmade envelopes. pretty good for one day! too bad it will not show up in my Etsy numbers but I'm happy none the less. Today's another day in the office. Hopefully I'll get some more sales.

Lock & Lock Lunch Box set

I went to Toronto, Canada for Thanksgiving with a few friends. We drove up there. It was a long 10 hr drive each way, including rest stops. I am glad we went through because I found this awesome lunch box set! It's actually way more food than I can eat for lunch but isn't it the cutest? I bought two other kinds of lunch boxes too. I'll take pictures when I use them.
