Prepare for the Cold!

LiPeony @ Brooklyn Flea
Brr! Tomorrow is suppose to dip into the 20's in the coldest temperatures of the season so far. With my luck I happen to be vending at Brooklyn Flea. Its one of my favorite places to not only sell but buy. It's only though the wonderful people of the NewNewTeam that I was able to really get myself out in my local neighborhood. If you're out braving the cold tomorrow stop on by to warm up with some delicious food and browse around.

Until next time... keep warm and be safe!

Do You Write Love Letters?

Love Letter to a Mermaid @ LiPeony
In this age of technology with the Facetime, Skype, cell phones, email, im, virtual chats and what not it's seems rare that people send each other handwritten letters. I happen to think of this when I notice Valentine's day is quickly approaching. I also use the above technology to communicate with my long distance boyfriend but once in a while I would write a little love letter filled with my sloppy handwriting and grammatical errors filled with little hand drawn smileys and hearts all over the darn place. It's these messy tokens that he cherishes the most. I know life is hectic and there never seems to be enough hours in the day... but drop a little handwritten note/post-it once in a while...

On another note... I'll be vending at Brooklyn Flea January 23 2011. Not sure if I would have some of my prints as cards... check it out if you're in the neighborhood =)

Until next time... pick up a pen or pencil and write your heart out!

Creativity vs Fear

Barn Owl and Mouse Cupcake @ LiPeony

I was on the verge of not posting the little print above because I thought to myself owls have been so overdone and they're everywhere on etsy and also in stores. That changed when I read this article on etsy called Fearless Creativity... it really spoke to me. There are always so many ideas bouncing in my head but few make it on paper because of the reasons mentioned such as "this will never be as good as xxx" or "it's been done" etc. This can be applied in life as we're always besieged by fear and it creates this glass ceiling. Not letting this fear get you down is an ongoing struggle but I hope reading this little article would give you encouragement to combat those little voices in your head.

Until next time... don't let fear bind your creativity!

Happy Holidays!

Sir Octopus and His Afternoon Tea @ LiPeony

Happy holidays to all! I hope everyone had a relaxing and awesome holidays. I spent mine relaxing in South Jersey and Philadelphia where with my boyfriend and his cousins and friends attempted to make sushi. It wasn't so bad but next time we'll be more prepared! Which reminds me a lot of the drawing above. I must have made several versions of it but never seem to get it right until now. I think it's like most things... when at first you don't succeed try try and try again. Though it can get frustrating but in the end you have this sense of "ahh" when it all works out. I'll try to keep that in mind for 2011... to try try try.

Until next time... happy holidays and always keep on trying =D
