Custom Canvas Printing for a VIP Client today :)


Today's custom print order was really special as the artist was only 6 years old! I wish I had half the powers of imagination he has. You can't see it from here but there are bunny spiders in there!

NEW IN THE STORE: ARTSUNAMI PRINTS AND PAPER GOODS!



In August, we introduced Artsunami Prints and Paper Goods; giclee prints featuring our range of fun typography and illustrations suitable for any occasion. 


All our prints are designed and manufactured in-house and those that don't make the cut get put in our personal collection. They are available in the categories below and the Paper prints fit perfectly into Ikea Ribba frames.

  • 12x16inch Matte Prints are made on ultrasmooth, archival quality, ultrasmooth, matte paper that results in a luscious print with dense, rich colours. 
  • 5x7inch MiniPrints are made on beautifully thick, 300gm, cream coloured, textured paper. 

  • Canvas Prints, which come stretched and ready to hang, meaning they don't need further framing! Easy, thoughtful home decor gifts for under RM100 :)

The Little Red Market, 14th October 2012


It was another fun filled sold out day for a lot of us at the Little Red Market, last Sunday. The handmade event was chock full of activity from the time it started at 10am till the time it ended at 5pm. There were live performances, capoeira, ice cream potong...


We got there nice and early...and were setup in time to chat with some early shoppers who were bicycling around Publika for Wheelie Sunday. What do you think? Our Artsunami Prints look pretty comfy next to our decals, don't they?

Momage Art was out in full force with loads of new goodies...

Geboo and ZeroPumpkin made for the perfect neighbours of the day :)


Beautiful pottery ware just a few stalls down..people could even make their own pots and take them home after! How cute are they! Want to get in contact with them? Look for Clay Loo (016-3586966).


Creativity in every corner! I was all by myself that day, so i only managed a few quick snaps of a some really interesting stalls. By the end of the day, most of the stalls were looking pretty bare...a huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who stopped by to chat and support us and kudos to the organisers who did an amazing job! I had a wonderful time :)

Custom Installation at Kajang Hillpark Homes



We had the chance to go on a little road trip yesterday...for a custom installation in Kajang Hillpark homes. Lucky for us, it was a beautifully downcast day and it made for a really pleasant trip out of the city. 

One of the things I've learnt through the years of installing decals, is that no two installations are ever alike and each installation has its challenges. While the design for this particular home was a simple one, the challenge was to get all the stems straight and evenly spaced out. I personally enjoyed this installation because it was closer to the ground than to the ceiling....lol.. 

Three hours later and all the decals were up! Just in time for lunch...and yes, we had yummy Kajang satay :)

It's so important that it's unique and easily remembered since all of our updates get posted there first..So here goes..while it's a bit lengthy, it's not taken and it's original...lol...Follow us on facebook!

I am thankful for like-minded people and for kindred spirits...




When i first joined the Etsy Malaysia team 2 years ago, it was to increase our exposure and be included in as many craft markets as possible. However, being part of this team has not only allowed me to reach these goals, it has given me friends and comrades who go through the same day to day challenges as I do and aim for the same goals as I do....basically, the knowledge that I am not alone and I am thankful for that. 

My first contributor post on our team blog went live today, please check it out at http://etsymalaysia.com/2012/07/06/finds-so-being-a-wallflower-is-cool-after-all/. Also check out the rest of the posts by all the wonderful members of our team and you'll discover a lot of quirky creative stuff you may not have thought we little Malaysians had in us:) Enjoy!

BCD is in the Malaysian Women's Weekly July 2012!

How to get a picture that paints a thousand words?


I bet my bottom dollar everyone comes across this challenge in the evolution of their crafting journey...and that everyone includes me. Up till now, I've managed to take pretty decent pictures using my Lumix on automatic setup but that could do with more improvement. So, while doing some R&D on this subject, i was reminded of a post written by one of my favourite go-to sites for tips and advice pertaining to my little crafty business. It links up to 9 other really useful articles that i thought i'd share...so here's the link and happy click-a-clickin' for an essay worthy pic:)

Our 2nd Little Red Market coming this February!!

What a way to kick start our 2012...we've been invited again to take part in this little gem of a craft market and we are so excited!! The last time we took part in this market we sold out on a few of our designs, which is awesome. So, this round I plan to bring back more of our popular decals as well as a host of new designs that came about during the long, long holidays. Hopefully, being a Saturday and all, the crowd will be bigger and better:)

The market is being held in the same location as the first one ~ 32, Jalan Beka, Damansara Heights from 10am to 3pm. Can't wait to catch up with some of the vendors we had the pleasure of getting to know during the first one and really excited to see the new vendors Sally and Melissa have managed to find:) Better get a producing!
