Christmas Owl and Laptop Skin

Holiday is near, I realized that I haven't worked much on holiday related topics. This Christmas Owl is a playful holiday gift for everyone as I hope.
My big laptop is still in the shop for repairing. I cannot access my store right now. If you like to buy laptop skin of this design. You can go to my Dawanda store.

I just got a feedback from one of my customers that bought a laptop skin from my store. Here is what she said:"
Thank you so much for the laptop skin! Very beautiful and fast shipping to boot. I would buy from you again without hesitation.

Take care,
Mary is one of the first few brave people that bought the laptop skins from my store directly. Not many people dare to buy things from a personal Internet shop. I am glad that she likes it.

It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.

This month's question that myself and 8 other women will answer is seasonal and related to it feeling so winterly - "How do the different seasons and weather affect you in your art and craft?"

Well, it is good or bad depending how you feel that in Singapore there is no season. It is summer all the time. There are only dry and rainy seasons. The dry season starts from May and last to November. Towards end of the year, it is cool rainy season.

Since there is not much difference in the weather here, I am not affected by the different seasons in my art. But I am do affected by lots of things, the holidays such as Christmas, new year and my vocation time and also just something that pops out from somewhere.

I am attracted to many things and sometime confused of what I really want. When I saw something that sells very well in the Internet such as fashion, I am so attracted to it and want to do the same thing. I forgot what made me to pursuit the art in the first place.

But it is ok. I try not to be tough to myself. I allow myself to be confused and to try something else. But I also remind myself that I must concentrate on something that I really want. I can adjust along the way and should not be too stubborn to change. But I must stick to the thing that I really like and want to do and perfect it.

The only thing is it is just too difficult to know what I do is right and wrong. You cannot be persistent on something that is not right.

I haven't worked much this week due to problems with my computer. It is a good time to think more and do a bit less.

Have a nice weekend and don't forget to visit others:

You may find the article is not on some of the blogs due to time differences, do come to visit in a later time.

Back to Normal, Almost

I mentioned my laptop problem to my my neighbor when you came to visit. She suggested to use the spare memory sticks in my small laptop. She helped me to change the memory. Wow, my small one now can work almost as the big laptop.

Everything back to normal and I am so happy.

It is so cumbersome nowadays without your laptop. Sigh....

Laptop is down

I got my laptop back and was very happy because I added more memory and it seems very fast. But after I made it sleep and opened it again, the same problem came back. Too bad, I need to send it again tomorrow for repair.

I am very sorry that I have to hold some of the orders.

Relaxing near Pond

The more powerful laptop of mime broke down yesterday. I guess I used it too much and it is too hot here in Singapore.

This illustration is done in my very small travel mate laptop. It is very slow to work on images. I just get this done and have no way to work in the laptop skin.

I hope I can get the big laptop back by tomorrow.

Singing Bird Laptop Skin Red

This red color laptop skin is the only one currently available with this color. I love it. It can match the black laptop or the one with the same red color.

These laptop skins are ordered recently. They look much more rich and dazzling than the images. The purple poppy one is very big and it is so beautiful when it is magnified.

If you would like to find out how my customers feel about the laptop skins, you can read the Customer Testimonials.

I am so happy that I just sold the above ACEO. This is the only ACEO I have ever made and sold. It is fun!

Fox and Bird Laptop Skins

I didn't find a good idea to continue last project, instead I have this fox and bird. I found fox cute, although in Chinese culture fox is considered slimy.

I bought a new vinyl pool. My baby is so happy with it. I remember when I was a child, it was such a great joy to jump into river and play with my friends. The whole afternoon was such a short time for me. My parent would get very angry that I wasted my time in the river.

My baby can play whole day in the pool if I let her do it.

Work in Progess and Singapore Food

Half finished today for this flower tree. I don't know what is the next at the moment. Just leave as it is and hope that I will have a nice thing in my mind to get it completed later.

It is weekend again. I am so happy and want to go out to eat and do window shopping or do some real shopping.

Talking about eating, Singapore is really a food paradise. You get so many variates such as Chinese, western, Malay and Indian food. Just name some common dishes such as chilly crab, beef randan and Shanghainese xio long bao. They are my favorites.
Isn't this Chilly Crab yummy. I know what I want to eat today.

Yellow Birds and Laptop Skins

This is my thrid illustration with Chinese painting style. I have learned Chinese bird and flower painting before when I was at collage time. In Chinese Painting, we don't paint the background. It is left to white so that the black ink is beautifully contrasted with the paper. It is very interesting to see the illustration result with the purple background. Order the Skins

Peony and Butterfly Laptop Skin

Holiday season is near. I am thinking of creating something that symbolizes prosperous and hope for the new year.

Peonies are always symbols of noble and prosperous in Chinese culture. The actual flowers are very big and colorful. The ancient poets liked to liking the beautiful and noble ladies with the flowers.

The first one is the Christmas color. I feel like to have some green and red strong colors to accumulate holiday mood.

You can buy the laptop skin either for yourself or as a gift here.Order the Skins
