Wedding Contest!

The Wedding contest

The contest is open for upcoming weddings set next year from January 1, 2009 to December 31st 2009! You’ll be able to get up to 100 customizable wedding favors similar to my Meekiyu Love Knot dolls at $2 each instead of $6 that i usually charge (for example 100 = $200 Paypal). This includes shipping (LIMITED TO THE US =/ sorry) and individual packaging in either small wedding favor boxes or bags (you choose from a selection i will provide)! Keep in mind that everything is going to be handmade by me using my own time and poor fingers it can take from two weeks to a month for me to finish after i get the OK on the designs.

All you have to do write a short paragraph about why you want/need these favors and why you guys should win the contest! If you don’t mind just post it as a comment on my blog! You have from now to November 2nd!

I will randomly select a couple out of a hat and announce the winner.

If you have any questions just drop a comment off in my blog or conversation me on etsy!

Tender Toes

That's me tender toes! After much debating I've decided to move my blog to blogger instead of wordpress though that site is still up. Reasoning is there's virtually unlimited space for pictures, etsy mini and everyone else seems to have a blog so i might as well give it a try =D.

So what is Meekiyu and what is up with my etsy site? Where did i come up with the name Meekiyu?

Mee is the first name of my dear late grandma... kiyu is yuki mixed up which means snow.

Meekiyu was a spark as the last piece of art I would make in an anime art auction. After making a few they captured my imagination as I went on a frenzy making small Meekiyus of my friend and families. I strung them to make as key chains and decorations and soon this lead to their images on handmade canvas bags.

To me what makes Meekiyus different from my other art is that there is consistency but yet each Meekiyu was obviously different. I feel the origami paper and let my hand draw the face and a little personality is developed. Some are quiet, some are loud, some are mischievous and all the zillions facets of what each person is. Under the guidance of my mom and the old sewing machine, I craft each bag and draw each Meekiyu. As for their personal characters I’ll let you guys figure it out.
