Coming soon.

Just a super quick post, but coming soon to my shop will be my pandas in a wooly version ^_^ I love the quality of this yarn and I think it made my mini assembly line of pandas look really cute (: Will write more about it later, but it's almost 5am and so I need to sleep. Lots of work to do in the morning. Please look out for these pandas in my shop soon!

Order status has been updated. New orders have been listed. Some were shipped. And I'm still working on others. The next few days will be busy with me finishing up my wholesale order which needs to ship out asap so there will be a slight delay in shipping out individual orders, but I'll try my best to get them out to you asap. Thanks for being super patient (:

Also, I've been updating and organizing my other blog. Make sure you check it out if you've got the time. It's my personal blog (whereas this one is dedicated strictly to y0omii stuff), and contains stuff that I've been up to, as well as photography stuff, and of course some etsy stuff as well (:

I hope you're all doing well. I still have to fix up this blog to make it look less cluttered haha.

Featured in an Etsy Treasury: Toki

So it hasn't been that long since I've added Toki to my list of oddly cute characters over on Etsy, but I'm happy to announce that Toki has been featured in a treasury full of super cute hedgehogs! It's almost like he's made a new family! Horray!! So, I thought I'd share this treasury with you. Thank you to HanaLetters for including my little hedgehog in your wonderful treasury :D

If you haven't checked out this treasury yet, please do so before it expires (yes treasuries expire), but my screencap will last forever! hehe~

This treasury expires Friday, April 23, 2010

New addition: Toki the hedgehog

I've been wanting to make a hedgehog for a long time. I think they're super adorable, although I've never seen one in person (only in photos), but they're too cute! So here is my first version of a small hedgehog. I plan to make different versions sporting different colours. It'll also be available as a cellphone charm/key chain/ornament, so if you are wanting it in any of those options do let me know. There is an additional fee of $1 to convert it into a cellphone charm/keychain/ornament. I'll have photos up a bit later to show you what it would look like.

Toki is the cutest tiny hedgehog that I've ever laid eyes on. He's quite small and compact, which makes it super easy for him to travel around with his friends wherever they go. He often likes to rest beside ones laptop, and usually makes the top of ones desk or bed his home. When travelling, he likes to huddle up in his friend's pocket, where it's dark, quiet, and very comfortable for him to take a nap during a long car ride. He's been known to be quite a cute little helper as well, finding small objects that his friends thought they had lost.

Special Feature: Custom embroidered patch on the bottom. Max 2 lines (8 characters per line). If no message is left upon checkout detailing what you'd like embroidered, then the name "Toki" will be embroidered instead

The hedgehog photographed was originally made for my friend's project. He plans to send a gift package to a girl group in Korea, known as 2NE1, along with a boy group known as BigBang. This hedgehog was one of many other presents that we are planning on giving to them (since they have a pet hedgehog named 또치 (Ddochii) ^^). That being said, the hedgehog you order may slightly differ from the one photographed, but they'll still be extremely cute and adorable!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me either through the contact me page, or by leaving me a message in the message box over to the right. You can also contact me via Twitter, me2day, or Etsy.

Cherry Blossoms

My friends and I went out today to see the cherry blossoms in HP. It was my first time going there, but it was beautiful. There were so many people there too, so I didn't really take any sort of landscape shots. Most of my photos were of the cherry blossoms, and some other flowers (: It was a fun experience, but I still have a lot to learn about how to use my own camera. Hopefully we'll have more outings like today (: The weather was gorgeous by the way (although a little bit on the chilly side).

Featured in a lovely treasury.

A big thank you to Gwen for taking the time to make this wonderful treasury and for including Daisy among her choices ^___^ yay!

New Favourites on Etsy.

So today I was wandering about the shops on Etsy and stumbled upon two very adorable shops that I've fallen in love with (: Both shop owners agreed to let me write a blog post about them so here I go with my NFOEs (new favourites on Etsy).

First up we have rlfreshwater's shop called "MISO GIRLS".

The first thing that caught my attention about Rhonda's shop was that she makes kokeshi dolls!. I absolutely adore kokeshi dolls, although I do not own any myself (but I would love to!). Ever since discovering the wonderful world of kokeshi dolls, I've wanted to collect some, or at least try to make some (one day I will try!). I really love the way that Rhonda makes these dolls. They're very cute, and wonderfully detailed. Nice and simple designs, with flattering colours, and a smart play on words! Some of the names of her dolls include: "Miso Shy (pictured above), Miso Sassy, Miso Sweet, and Miso Lucky." I think my favourite out of the bunch would be Miso Lucky and Miso Sassy (photos below).

All of her dolls are beautifully handcrafted. She even offers a blank kokeshi doll for anyone (like me) who is interested in trying to create their own. I will definitely have to revisit her shop in the future to not only pick up a blank kokeshi, but to purchase one of her pieces as well since I think they are super lovely, and she is such a talented artist. I can't wait to see what she makes next (:

Another wonderfully talented artist that caught my eye is dancingintherains. I don't know what it is, but I'm drawn towards illustrators. They always seem to fascinate me. Maybe it's because it's something that I wished I had pursued myself (but didn't). So I secretly hope that one day I would be able to draw as well as these artists. Gwen's shop drew me in with the images of her plush kittys (I'm a big cat lover), but I was delightfully surprised to see some of her cellphone cases which feature her own hand-drawn illustrations (of kittys of course!).

Just take one look at her adorable illustration of this extremely cute kitty staring up at the fishies. Doesn't it make you want to say "awwww how cute!". You can't deny how adorable her illustrations are. Each cellphone case she makes has a unique drawing featured on the front, each of which displays a different kitty in various scenarios and poses. The one in the photo above is definitely one of my favourites! But I love all of her other ones just as much!

If you don't need another cellphone case, but love her drawings, she also offers mini kitty ornaments which feature more unique illustrations (all of which are hand drawn onto the fabric itself). I'm definitely tempted to grab one of these for myself (probably a lot sooner than I think) and will definitely be back at her shop in the near future!

I'm happy that Gwen, the shop owner, like's my owl named Gwen! hehehe.

All in all, if you haven't yet visited these two shops, then what are you waiting for? Please check them both out as both artists are super talented at what they do. All of their items bring a smile to my face when I see them, and I am sure they will capture your heart too (:

y0omii ♥'s littleoddforest

Today marks the arrival of my MBWC! It's here! It finally came :D I'm so super excited hehehe. My much anticipated Mushroombrella Wrist-Clutch of Forest Print's "littleoddforest" arrived today! I had been quite super impatient with our postal service because they had not made any updates about the current location of my bag, except that it was in my country. So I really had no idea when to expect its arrival (although I was going to be deeply sad if it had not come in by next week). Now all my worries have been washed away (well, pertaining to my order that is), since it finally arrived today! Horray! The day I celebrate my 4 year anniversary with the boyfriend is the same day that I received my lovely order :D So I was doubly happy than normal haha~

The clutch itself was way better than I thought it would be. Lynda was absolutely right that I would love this one! Thank you Lynda ♥. The quality is fantastic; colours are vibrant; it's a tad smaller than I expected, BUT I'm SO happy that it is because I was expecting it to be a lot bigger and was wishing for it to be a bit smaller (haha), SO for me it is the perfect size! The patterned fabric is very lovely and quite soft as well. I find that the hidden snap closure to be a lovely touch, and the inner pocket is quite useful too. I put in the little pack of tissues that she had given me as well (which fits in very nicely hahaha, and was something that I need since I'm working off a cold which is almost gone by the way ^^).

All in all, I'm extremely happy with this purchase, and I highly recommend that you visit her shop! Lynda still has a very similar clutch in stock (in the colour fawn), so if you're interested, do head on over here to check it out! If I ever get a chance to travel to Singapore, I'm definitely going to be visiting Lynda in her forest to say hello, and thank her for the wonderful forest inspired goodies that she makes, because each one of her pieces make me smile (: So like I promised her, I'm going to now spam the rest of this blog post, with some photos that I took of my mushroombrella wrist-clutch (which is in the colour mint). Enjoy!

It's a shop I really liked when I was in Korea, and I wish I had more time to shop there! Or at the very least, that they would bring that shop over to Toronto, Canada! They came up with something super interesting on Twitter so I thought I'd share it with everyone (:
Check it out my UTweet! tweet show down below! You'll need to click on the image for the thing to start playing (:

And another screencap... see if you can spot @y0omii in there among everyone else (:

I suggest that everyone try this out as it's very cool and has a very catchy tune... haha (:

More orders will be shipping out within this week! Stay Tuned (:

Kai and Hootsuite Mascot

Here's a quick photo of an order that I did for a friend. He had ordered Kai the owl as well as a custom owl based on the hootsuite owl mascot (since he works for them). So here is my toy version! I hope they like it ^____^

Kai the owl -- $14 USD
Custom owl -- send me a message if you'd like me to create your own custom owl

I hope everyone is doing well! As for me, I'm still sick... but I'm trying to get through it each day. I feel like I'm starting to get a little better as the week progresses, but it still really sucks to be sick. I can't stop coughing and keep having to run around to find tissues. Don't worry, I'm wearing a sick mask so I'm not coughing over everything! That's the LAST thing that I'd want to do (-___-);;

Hope you will all have a good friday! I'm going to grab something to eat because I skipped dinner tonight (I know... horrible! but I didn't feel hungry at the time).

FOTM: The mushroombrella wrist-clutch by LOF.

So I have been planning on featuring items from other shops that I truly adore, but I didn't know how to go about it, or if it should be a weekly versus monthly thing, or just sporadic. I've finally decided to make it a monthly thing. My Favourite(s) of the Month will also be posted under my "Featured" section, and will display an item (or items) that are truly my favourite. These are all handmade items made by very awesome and talented people, and I just thought that I should share it with everyone ^^ So to begin, my first FOTM is the mushroombrella wrist-clutch by LittleOddForest!

Made by: LittleOddForest
Item: Mushroombrella Wrist-Clutch
Type: Waterblossoms (fawn)
Price: SGD$70 (~$43.75 USD)
Other types: CherryB Bunnys (blush, burgundy), VintageB.Posies, Purple Dreams (blush)

The Mushroombrella Wrist-Clutch by LittleOddForest has become one of my newest favourites (as I'm sure Lynda knows!). I am absolutely in love with this clutch! Lynda is super talented and very creative. I just love how she combines very simple colours, accenting with unique fabric patterns, to give her functional pieces a very unique style.

My very first purchase from LOF was a custom passport sleeve, which I really enjoyed using while on my trip to Korea. It kept everything very neat and organized! She was also super accommodating, and took the time to go through different fabric patterns and suggestions with me until we came up with a great combination.

My newest obsession from her shop is the mushroombrella wrist-clutch. It's very unique compared to the other bags that I own, and the fact that its handmade, makes it feel a little more special too ^^. I have actually purchased one for myself from Lynda's online shop, and it should be arriving very soon (sometime within this week I hope)! The version I bought is extremely similar to the one photographed, but mine is in the colour "mint" which has already sold out (I had bought the last one!). I'm so excited to get mine, and I promised her that I'd picture spam my blog once I do.

I love all of Lynda's creations in her very wonderfully fun shop. Since most of her items are limited edition pieces, and each one is handmade, a lot of her stuff sells out fast! So if you see something you like, I suggest grabbing it while you can, because if you hesitate, you may not be able to get it (which almost happened to me hahaha). If you don't believe me, I was eyeing her Summer Bird Bangle-Clutch (Busy Buzzy Bees -- orange) when she had first listed it, and within what seemed like 1 or 2 days, it has already SOLD OUT!

So as her critter fairy guardian that wants to live in her shop (as discussed through our silly Twitter conversation), you can tell that I definitely love all of the forest inspired goodies that are in her shop, and I will definitely be back for some more goodies in the future (: If you haven't checked out her shop yet, I highly suggest that you do, as I'm sure you'll be able to find something that you'll absolutely love!

Springtime allergies.

Dear allergies, please go away~
It's that time of year again! It's the time when the season changes and I get attacked by allergies. Allergies are one of the most annoying things that I have to face. I was feeling a little funny yesterday...eyes were a little itchy, noes was feeling a little stuffy and itchy as well, and my throat was feeling a little dry. I thought it would turn out to be like the other days, where after some rest, I'd be feeling back to my normal self. I thought it was just a temporary allergic reaction to some dust. But when I woke up today, my throat was extremely sore and my nose was super stuffed. Ahhh, then the realization hit that seasonal allergies have struck me again! It's definitely not something that I enjoy having each season, especially when regular allergy medicine doesn't seem to help much. I can only hope that they will disappear soon.

Afternoon lunch.

Here's something that I quickly made for lunch today. It's rolled up like an egg roll, but is much like a vegetable pancake ^_^ It's quite yummy, and you can probably make it with a bunch of different vegetables (but I only used lettuce and red bell pepper in mine). I've also made a version of this before like an onion pancake ^^ haha. Just thought that I'd quickly share some photos :)

Photowalk around Campus.

The other day I had a mini reunion with a few of my friends and we had decided to have a mini photowalk around campus. We ended up taking some photos outside of the Royal Ontario Museum (the ROM), as well as around the downtown campus of our university. I haven't gotten to see Anny since last year before she left for Taiwan, and the last time that I saw Janet was when I had visited her in Korea (: So it was really great seeing them again! Our friend Tina stopped by afterwards while we were out eating cake at a cafe type place, and it was really nice seeing her again as well, since we calculated that it's been around 3 years since we last saw each other, which is really quite long! I wish that I had taken more photos, but I think I got some neat shots. Hopefully there will be another day to go on a photowalk. The weather has been really great here lately, and so I do want to get outdoors more! Anyways, here are some of the photos I took. I really wish I had a macro lens for the flower photos haha. It's definitely on my 'shopping' list. Click on the thumbnails to view a larger image. I really wish I had my own domain so that I could get lightbox to work. It would make it a whole lot easier to post photos and display them on my blog...

Aside from the photowalk, this week has been super busy and flew by too quickly. I didn't get as much finished as I had hoped but hopefully this weekend will be super productive. I hope to have a bunch of orders shipped out in the coming week. Thanks for being so patient everyone! Sorry for the delay. I'm getting some knitting done before I head off to bed and will continue over the weekend holiday (: I hope you'll all have a great weekend!
