i just placed my first order from Society6 and i am really looking forward to having that very first ever laptop sleeve!! yes you heard it right, the very first one. somehow i’ve never had one before (usually i just threw my macbook into the tote bag) and never felt the need to have one until recent. it’s about time!

so can you guess which one i actually placed the order?

something new in the house : prints from hammade


we recently bought two prints from hammade and finally we got them framed and up on the wall in a beautiful spring weekend afternoon! don’t you agree the design is just simply awesome? even there are stacks of diaper next to the poster, the skip jumping rabbit totally pulls it off and remains cool.

if you’re looking for a minimal, stylish, and playful poster that is hand-made (screen printed) and unique, with high design quality and reasonable price, london-based hammade would be your go-to. plus, the shipping is reliable & fast, and each poster came in a super stylish package: black cardboard tube with brown paper sticker (wait to see the wrapping paper inside!).

to a sucker for packaging like me it was almost too nice to open.

after the successful poster purchase, now i am waiting to have these two mugs back in stock:



oh, some side notes for the first image:

✚ frame is from IKEA. nothing fancy, but it works just fine and fits the 50x70cm poster perfect.

✚ changing pad cover from mod fox : okay, chaining pad cover is not something that everyone would need, but if at some point you’re looking for nice quality (hand-made) modern design changing pad cover (or baby bedding)… check out mod fox on etsy!

for these who live in united states… happy thanksgiving! j and i are not traveling this year, which means no crazy highway traffic  and no starbucks stop…yay! and we don’t have any plan for friendsgiving as well, just relaxing time for two of us with yummy food marathon from brunch to dinner to late night dessert, plus some netflix binge =)

gold foil just makes everything seem more cheerful and it makes a ordinary world map glamorous. recently i’ve been kind of obsessed about posters & stationary with gold foil… don’t be too surprised if you receive greeting card from me and there is gold foil on it.
