Splurge yourself without breaking the bank! and more...


First the good news: Remember my 'wings of iris' necklace at the Handmade Olympics? Well, proud to announce that it is a silver medalist now! Many thanks to Kristal from the Rikrak Studio for hosting such a big and fun event, also to all of my super nice supporters for voting for my necklace! The support was just incredible, I was speechless seeing my family, friends and lovely fellow Etsy artists helping me spread the word like it was their own event! THANK YOU thank you and thank you! :)

I went ahead and selected my favorite items from the amazing Etsy sellers' shops, who helped me on my little journey. These are very few of them, but I wish I could have them all here! I especially wanted to choose from their very cool but affordable items for you to 'splurge yourself without breaking the bank' (or a loved one, or me for example!)

-How adorable is that cupcake hairclip? I had to heart it for my niece to be born soon!
From chomelchomel $6

-I think that eco-friendly Kids Journal is a great gift option for the little ones to keep them busy while discovering their artistic skills! From Nicopapergoods $21

-I'm in love with everything in orlydesign shop! Look at these love birds,how adorable? She will even customize them for you with your initials! Perfect gift idea for many occasions! $45

-Boats of Vietnam from dmahlow . I found this artist's technique very unique, as he creates this mosaic look by cutting up the original photo piece by piece, and repositioning them!
The print is $15


- Skeptis shop has full of colorful and fun jewelry! These vintage beaded Strwaberry Shortcake Earrings are looking so sweet, makes my mouth water! $14
