Cheerful pink, sweet gift from best friend.


A sweet pretty gift from my best friend. Love how she made the package and how it turned into beautiful embroidered little bag when unfolded. Another gift inside is traditional Thai sweet snack, my favorite :) Don't you love receiving gifts? Especially when it comes in mailbox. Sometimes you know what you are going to get but the moment of opening it is always exciting :)

ของขวัญจากคุณเพื่อน สีชมพูสวยหวาน พอเดาออกว่าข้างในคืออะไร แต่ก็ยังตื่นเต้นเวลาเปิดอยู่ดี ยิ่งห่อมาอย่างน่ารักแบบนี้ด้วย ^-^ ชอบการได้รับของทางไปรษณีย์ บางทีรู้อยู่แล้วว่าจะได้อะไร ก็ยังตื่นเต้นเวลาเปิดนะ บางทีสั่งของออนไลน์ให้ตัวเอง เป็นคนจ่ายเงินแท้ๆ แต่ก็ยังรู้สึกมีความสุข :)


something along the way


I just join Instagram, actually I have just switched to smart phone after using ordinary cellphone for so long. I'm still lousy at taking pictures with iphone though. My hands are always shaky and I feel like I'm an aunty :( I try not to take photos of people and moving things, feeling more comfortable with still life or something with obvious structure of lines and shapes. It's a good record of color studies too. I hope I could take nice, clear and clean beautiful pictures without having to adjust them in photoshop someday.

ps. I'm going to make this blog bilingual, English-Thai from now on. I have separate blog written in Thai but decide to merge it to save time. Hope this will work out well.

พยายามกลับมาเขียนบล๊อกให้สม่ำเสมออีกครั้ง คราวนี้ขอรวมทั้งอังกฤษ-ไทยในที่เดียว จะได้ไม่เป็นการเสียเวลา...

เพิ่งหันมาใช้ไอโฟน ชาวบ้านเขาใช้สมาร์ทโฟนไปถึงไหนๆ แล้ว แต่เราเพิ่งมาใช้ ถ่ายรูปไม่ถนัดมือเลย รู้สึกป้ามาก -_- บางทีก็รู้สึกหงุดหงิดตัวเองเพราะการถ่ายรูปให้สว่าง สวย เป็นสิ่งสำคัญมากสำหรับงานเราในอนาคต แต่มันก็ต้องฝึกไปเรื่อยๆ สินะ ก็เหมือนวาดรูป กว่าจะได้สไตล์ของตัวเองก็ใช้เวลา ('-')...

ปล. กำลังจะกลับมาเปิดร้าน MerryDay อีกครั้ง หวังว่าคราวนี้เราจะอึดพอ...


my little studio


I just got two beautiful blue desk lamps for my little studio. I never called my workspace studio before. It's weird that now that I do, I feel energized and ready to create :D Sometimes little things or actions can effect you in a good way :)

Update for my shop improvement. I printed out 3 card designs the other night. There are another 3 in progress and many more in my head. I just got another fun idea this morning too and pretty excited about it. I decided not to show the design I'm working on until they are all ready for sale. There will be ton of things I need to do. Hope nothing gets in the way *fingers crossed*


make it happen


I know I have been talking about my time management problem like forever.  I pity myself sometimes but there's nothing I can do except to keep trying and trying.

Last year I took 2 courses that taught me one major thing. That is if you want to make your own business working, self-discipline is the key. This doesn't mean I'm a slacker. If I am, I won't be able to maintain my freelance job for years already. My problem is that I never considered my etsy shop as my job. This, I just realize.  I always thought I could manage my freelance job along with making things for my shop. It turned out that my shop fell into my secondary things. I stopped making art when my day job was too busy and never attempted to make it a habit to create constantly. I never devoted myself to my shop :(

One of my friends told me that I had a potential but lack of diligence and seriousness. It all comes from my attitude. So, this year I switch my priority. I cannot see myself as a freelancer in ten years to come but I can see myself as an owner of a shop. I have to make it happen!

This post seems like a pledge. I do hope I can make it happen :)


Have a merry year!


Happy New Year! :D

The first day of the year always gives me the feeling of a fresh start although I will still do what I have done last year.  But this year may be different. In fact, I have to make it different!

Making New Year's resolutions is a bit scary when make it publicly. I set my resolution every year and hardly accomplished it. It's a shame but I never stop setting it again. I think it's just the way of living. You have to have something to look forward to, to hold on so that you won't feel empty or lost... My resolution this year is just the same. To draw more, create more and to make it a business. The last thing is what I just added.  I have never been confident enough to believe that I could earn a living by my drawing. Let's see how far I can get with my goal :)

Have a merry year everyone! :D
