Hana . The 6th kokeshi



Here I am with kokeshi no. 6. Her name is Hana (Flower). She is a one of a kind doll.
 She will be listed in my miniature Etsy shop tomorrow 10AM Eastern Time.


She is made of polymer clay and is hand painted with lots of love and attention to details
 with acrylic colors and is sealed after that.
 The branch is gold plated brass and the flower is made of polymer clay and Swarovski crystal.
 The leaves are made of semi-transparent green paper.

Meet our cats


Meet our new cats, Felfeli and Boma!
 They are a pair of brother and sister and are one and a half years old!
 We adopted them 3 weeks ago. The sister (Felfeli) was very friendly and comfortable from day one,
 but Boma is a very shy guy.
He was hiding under the bed, in the tub, under the sofa,...you name it!
Now he is a bit better, he comes out and plays with his sister and we can pet him a little bit. 


 Boma in his hideout :D


Felfeli, she is the sweetest!

O is for Octopus



 "O is for Octopus"

I regularly receive e-mails from customers asking if I will add new watercolor animals to the shop.Aquatic animals for ocean themed nurseries are among the most requested.
 Next animal will be a seahorse.

Follow me on Instagram for sketches, work on progress photos and more.

Maemi . The fifth kokeshi


Hello friends! I was very quiet here on the web, but I was doing a lot of fun projects behind the scenes! I have finished making four more kokeshi dolls. This little orange baby is one of them. I just need to take photos of the rest. Sometimes I wish I had a photographer! I am not in the mood for taking photos these day...Am I too lazy?!!

Now let me introduce  this little happy girl properly:

Her name is Maemi (Smile of truth) and obviously she loves oranges. You can find her in my Etsy shop but don't ever get tempted to eat her tiny oranges: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JooJooTreasures

Those tiny leaves are hand painted. I use super small scissors to cut them out.
You can take a sneak peek at my other kokeshi dolls in the background.
I am so excited to show them all to you!

DIY How to color your own map tacks


I love map tacks. How about you?
Unfortunately I couldn't find that many lovely colors in the market.
Most of the ones I found were primary colors. Then one night I dreamt of 
a whole lot of map tacks in adorable pastel colors. Haha! That sounds silly but 
when I woke up I was still thinking about that dream...and then I decided
to color my own map tacks using nail polish! 


Aren't they adorable? 
All you need is two flat nose pliers, some white map tacks and some nail polish colors
(I have a big collection of nail polish. Some are from 15 years ago!!!)



Hope you enjoy and have fun trying this little DIY project!
