I am really honoured that ZIBBET used one of my flower creation on their banners!

Since I opened up my shop on ZIBBET in March this year, I felt really welcomed as a seller! They asked me to be a Featured ZIBBETER after a couple of weeks. They found me on Twitter and this is how I found out about this great Australian based Handmade site. I love their site concept, artists can list artworks without the upfront cost. And it's really compelling to me, as I am always creating something, and I already have over 240 items on my Etsy store since July last year. When I create something, it's usually not sold in the next few of days/weeks/months. And sometimes when I am experimenting with my new ideas, it's hard to know people will like it or not.

I really believe great artists need a freedom to create things without thinking that item would sell or not. Sometimes I am unsure if I should list my new piece. And I find when I am not pressured to make saleable items, this is when I create the best things ever, what people will love enough and purchase them.
And ZIBBET gives me this freedom of listing without the extra cost.

From the buyers point of view, it's a great Handmade site, because they will find undiscovered artist around the world, who was worried to open up a shop, because the upfront cost. As everyone knows, artist are spending most of their money on new supplies. I know, I am always looking for new supplies. Driving my husband mad about it, he always asking why I buy more organza, when I have 40-50 colours shades already :)
Not talking about glass beads, findings, canvas, paint, Swarovski crystals...etc.

I know ZIBBET is still a new site, as only launched beginning of this year. But I am sure ZIBBET will grow and it's nice to be there with them and being involved.
That's why I am feeling so honoured when they asked me if they can use one of my Flower Creation on their promotional Banners!

Family day out to the Swan Lake...'s not really called Swan Lake. Only I like to call it like that, because every time we go there we see swans.
The real name is Lake Velence.

I love this close up photo, so beautiful!

I was wearing my newly designed hair pin. You can find it in my shops.
Don't worry I am not selling this one in my hair, as it's mine.
I will make you a new one :)

My husband and my kids enjoyed the day so much!

My little daughter and me. She still need to learn about feminine posing :)

We like to go there again over the weekend.

Meet Giselle, the gorgeous Bridal or for Special Occasion Head piece

I was inspired by the Disney film called Enchanted, Giselle wore a beautiful head piece with lots of long ribbon on it. I love watching that film with my little daughter, as it's so romantic!!! I just love the romantic and feminine feel to this On Of A Kind head piece.
Everything handsewn, no glue been used when I created this pretty haircomb.
You can find this on my Etsy Store for $54.00
