Gingerbread man and his Christmas Tree

While preparing for a local Christmas Boutique, I still constantly think about what to make for my shop.  A gingerbread man and a Christmas tree seem to be a good combination to me!

Busy Autumn Season

I love autumn.  Our warm California weather, however, makes me forget that Christmas is just around the corner.

My recently projects have been quite different from one another.  It’s a norm for my day for filled with doing multiple project at the same time.  For example, I would stitch up fabric pieces while waiting for some paint to dry.  Or, my mind would drift away to a brand new idea for future product lines that I just have to stop whatever I was doing and jot down all the inspirations.

Miniature teddy bears, felt donuts, new backpack product line development, and a local Christimas Boutique show preparation, etc., are all part of my current focus.  If you check out my Instagram, you will see a lot of my ongoing projects.

Cutie Bats!

I have always believed that bats are much cuter and should have more positive image over the traditional dark impression. Because of this reason, I made these little Cutie Bats before the fall season.  It was certainly a fun project and nice prop for my dolls!IMG_6098 copy

Miniature Teddy Twins in Black and Grey

This is a new project that I just finished and sent off to their new moms. It’s part of a fun art collaboration with another artist, Denise Farinsky from Farinsky Art Studio.  I would say that our styles in art are quite different, but I appreciate the fact that she loves the kawaii side of my miniatures, and I love her creativity that just seems endless.

The Twins

Our assignment was for her to send me her custom petite Blythe doll inspired by the Kiki character in the Japanese anime called Kiki Delivery, and I would send her a 3-inch custom miniature bear in the color of her choosing plus a pink narwhal.

The color theme of black and pink somehow meshed pretty well with Kiki’s dark color clothing, and I am very pleased with the outcome.  This was my first time collaborating with another artist (after graduating from college, that is!), and it was just fantastic!

Our little art meet by these cute girls. They definitely have lots of fun together!

Besides the black teddy, I also made a grey one in the same style (a Gingermelon design, used with permission).  They are two teddy bears born together but now separate to different new moms.  I am happy that they both found new homes, and I believe that their new moms will treat them very well!
