First of all, I'd like to say a BIG thank you for your support at our MAAD event last Friday! It was our 4th time participating and the response was very encouraging.
As mentioned, we'll be donating 10% of the sale proceeds to a local dog shelter. In fact, this is an ongoing cause we support (no matter where you purchase our products/service; online, flea market etc). So, please continue to give us your support.
Secondly, I've listed our last few pieces of handmade cards and bookmarks on Etsy. Here are just some images of our lovely handmades. More designs can be found on our Etsy store, http://etsy.me/1cQ2FD3
I won't be creating these items anymore so it's your last chance to get them. Hurry over to our store now!
Lastly, I'd like to end my post with a lovely encounter I've had at the post office yesterday.
I was at the counter packing a customer's order when this lady who was also there to send out some parcels came up to me. She pointed at the Christmas postcards I was holding in my hands and asked if I drew them. I told her I did and she exclaimed 'Wow, they're beautiful. You're really great!'. As we were the last two customers to leave the place, we chatted abit outside the post office.
Apparently, she'd just sent her daughter to an art school and she couldn't help but feel concerned about her career path after she graduates. I shared with her what I do as an illustrator/designer besides freelancing; selling my works at flea markets, doing consignments and having my artworks licensed by art licensing companies. I told her that I'm very happy because I'm doing something I love. She seemed impressed. Finally she smiled at me and said, 'You are very brave. All the best to you.'
Yes, it may not be any easy path but it's definitely one of the greatest choices I've made. :)
❤ Xoxo, Rheea & Nono
