Happy Chinese New Year everyone! So today it’s Chinese New Year or otherwise known as the Lunar New Year. What we usually do when it comes to celebrate this rather important date in the Chinese calendar is that we eat traditional Chinese food with friends and families, exchange and open lei sees (otherwise known as red envelopes) and there are dancing Chinese dragons/lions too. I remember when I was younger we’d used to eat Chinese sweets which came in a rather beautiful containers with divided segments for the individual sweets. We used to spend Chinese New Year in Hong Kong when were we younger, which was all the more a special occasion as we’d only see our families maybe once a year. I remember we would open up or lei sees and light up paper lanterns in the evening, followed by loads of delicious food of course! There’s really no getting away with food.

This year it’s the Year of the Rat so to celebrate this rather special little creature I have made a print which is now available in my Etsy, Folksy and Urban Makers shop.

Well, I’m going to end it here. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and take care.

Hello folks… can you see where I’m going with this?! I’m super pleased to announce that I’ve finally opened a Folksy shop! I’ve been meaning to do this for over a year now, but I never got round to it. Anyway, I thought I would give it a bash and see how it goes. Obviously I’m having to navigate my way round it as I’m going and it’s hard not to compare it with Etsy as the two user interfaces are completely different. I’m always up for trying out new things- it’s the best way to learn too.


I’ll be updating more products as I’m going, hopefully within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned and support handmade local businesses!

Are you on Folksy? Are there any advice you could give to a newbie who’s just joined Folksy? What do you think of it? I look forward to reading your comments below. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
