Miu~ continued...


It was Sha's birthday in the end of April, and I made her a card to remind her to keep her promise. I am not sure if she likes pink floral, she isn't too girlie, more womanly I should think, but one thing about folks who seem too "cool" sometimes behave (or restrain) to upkeep the reputation. We have yet to meet up, and I am highly skeptical if she remembers our bet. I bought so much paper, made a few feeble attempts to add new designs (but not very successful) and am even looking for a scoring machine to try keep this promise. She BETTER remembers. ^_^

Well, Miu~ is back. I have 6 more designs, all sofa-centric. Here's a sneak preview of 1 of them. The pink & black is Sha's. This design can be customized with a date.







I ought to find a way to sell them, or I won't have much motivation to make more... Okie, will think of ways! Maybe another shop on Etsy? Hmm, maybe. Oh, just a little side-track, I once rented a slot in a flea market at Tanglin (shopping area in Singapore) more than 10 years ago. We (technically I was the one who rented, but 3-5 other friends came at different times to help man/hang around the store) had a little floor space of about 1m by 1.5m to place our goodies. I probably only had 20-30 cards for sale, and I sold 1, the ONLY one I didn't hand make!! How more encouraging can this be for a teenager with budding aspirations to be an artist of some sort. Is this a bad omen for Miu~ cards? Oh noooooo....... noooooooooo!!! Somebody wipe this bad memory off me!!

P.S. After thought of flea market experience: Maybe over-zealous friends had overcrowded store and blocked the views of potential buyers. Yes, I think that MUST be the very reason.
