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:

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!

A special commission

 I was working on a special watercolor commission lately. 
Four cute pets of Lauren's family are having a tea party.
These prints are for a newly born baby girl's room!
I would love to know which animal is your favorite in this illustration!?

Here you can see their super cute photos and my initial sketch.

Which animal is your favorite in this painting?

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!

Heezome . My parents Etsy shop

Hello everyone! Today I'm gonna introduce a fresh Etsy shop to you, but it's not my shop this time;
 It's actually my parents shop! The whole story started from the time that I asked my dad if he can
 make some tiny shadow boxes for me. Because I couldn't find them anywhere else.
 And voilĂ ! Heezome shop was born at that time. 
 Hope you enjoy!

I used these small shadow boxes for my kokeshi dolls.
A dream come true for me!

And I think painted stones look great displayed in them.
I will blog about my new painted stones very soon.

The prettiest way to display little treasures, travel souvenirs, miniatures,..Don't you think so?

DIY How to make bow shoes

I always have a challenge finding comfortable shoes and when I find them they are not
as cute as I want them to be. So I thought why not spice up the boring shoes myself?
I used some cool lace ribbon and beads for these comfy flats,
and I love how they turned out! 

Ribbon from Mokuba.

Haruko . Fourth kokeshi doll

Haruko (Spring) is the fourth doll of my kokeshi series.
 She loves to eat fresh fruits right before bedtime,
especially peaches and nectarines. 
She adores her 2 year old cat and always grows cat grass for her.

You can buy Haruko from my Etsy shop but remember to always have some nice fruits in the fridge.

The Gypsy Peacock

 "The Gypsy Peacock" is a necklace that I designed a few years ago and sold a few in my shop.
 Recently I made the same necklace with different green gemstones like Chrysoprase,
Green Onyx, Green Amethyst and Peridot.
  The chain is longer than before and I love how it turned out.
 In the last photo you can see all the available stones. 
They are all added to the shop.
