bunnies bring us joy! (these are not my bunnies, came across the video on youtube and they are irresistible!!)

Today, the NYT told me that I should blog to grow my business. Other Etsy sellers tell me this all the time, but I’m so lazy!! I always start off being very enthusiastic about blogging, and then my enthusiasm tapers off when I realise how much work it is. But, it would be really nice to have a log of how pequitobun evolves, and hopefully get some feedback too from friends and customers too. Etsy apparently may develop some holistic tools for sellers (portfolio, blog, comments section, etc), but these ideas were raised more than a year ago, and I’m not sure when they’ll have time to get to it).

Hence, my New Years resolutions:

1) stop biting my nails

2) blog everyday if possible

3) it’s not New Years’ yet, i’m sure i’ll come up with more!

Ok, as always, I’m always eager to share my buys =). (uh oh, you’re going to see what a shopaholic I am!!) Here is what I bought today! (hmm maybe this is all a disguise to show off my exciting new purchase)
super duper cute tank from imyourpresent!

i love her profile, she says she loves “sewing and crafting, collecting porcelain figurines, petting kittens and dressing up like a present”. lol!

my boyfriend sent me this postsecret:

are you an asian girl with a white boyfriend?

(actually i think my boy is latino.

he’s not sure either)

erm, sorry sweetie, i think three asian girlfriends is a fetish. although i’m sure i’m the best one.

hahahahah

xx,

diligent blogger s.

p.s. I just realised that that top is in the same colours as a new pair of earrings I made for next season!

here i present, a completely random post:
(Disclaimer: I have been thinking of nothing but vertebrate genetic disorders for a week)

YAY!!! I just finished the draft for the book chapter I have been writing… I just sent it to my advisor, so, fingers crossed that it is up to par, but meanwhile, I’m definitely getting a glass of wine =). Wow, it feels good to feel this relieved!

The book is due out next Spring (I think), which, incidentally, is also when a jewelry design book that my designs will appear in is set to be published! It was a wonderful surprise to be contacted by the book’s designer, a super awesome and talented lady (with great taste ;)…), to contribute my designs. She picked 16 pieces, and I think I finally sent her pictures of 13 or so to include. How funny, I’ll be published in my first medical textbook and jewelry design book at the same time! well, shan’t speak too soon. *knock on wood*.

in other news (hey, i’m stuck at home with a glass of muscato and my bunny and my boyfriend are ignoring me, and I’m too brain dead to hang out with people whom I expect myself to be entertaining around– long convoluted sentence but I’ve been writing non-stop of 7 days forgive me…ahahhahahaha *maniacal laughter* why do i think I will regret this entry??),

anyways, in other news, everyone is getting engaged/married/having babies. it’s crazy!! i think i’m just at that age. while me, i’m still in school. my little sis is working for a big investment bank and just got a promotion YAY!. at least she’s be able to buy my kids toys (i’ve been dropping hints to my boyfriend, believe me– makes everyone else uncomfortable i wonder why)…..ahahhaha *maniacal laughter*

ahhh life is nice. boston is hot. i don’t know how pequito deals with that much fur.

pics of his sexy pose and adorable furry big feet!!

my mailman hates me for buying so many supplies. he gave me a very upset look when i ran into him the other day, and he told me “i am alot of work”. my boyfriend says the same thing!!! now, i wait for him to leave and then creep downstairs to retrieve my mail. sometimes i pace in the corridor for quite a while waiting for him to be done with the mailboxes. it’s kind of awkward, really. but i love him, he brings me tons of goodies from around the world.

i got my driving license!!!!!! YAY!! yes, I am 25 but it’s a long story…. stolen car, living in two countries, makes getting a license an extremely boring and arduous task. or so i thought… had i known that they allow you to almost run over people during the test, i would have taken it earlier (no, i didn’t really, I just got caught between two open doors, not my fault!!)

friends visiting in august. bringing nice food from singapore. YAY!

new Japanese wholesaler. YAY and ~~~stress~~~

scholarship progress report ~~~don’t think about it~~~

how about that woman who ripped off her boyfriend’s testicles with her bare hands? a fellow half of a jew-sian couple (an asian girl who dates a jewish boy– now i’ve said too much) showed us this story. it happened in 2005 and i’m so amused that it still occasionally resurfaces as the top emailed story on BBCnews!! Like today!!

ok, i’ll publish this now, if i think of anything else appropriately random i’ll add to it. time to fill some orders…

probably no one cares, but the reason i’ve been so low key with (i.e. not making any) new designs is that

1) I’ve been writing a paper

2) I’ve been co-writing a book chapter

3) I’ve been packing stuff for my move.

Plus, (1) and (2) mean I’m mostly brain dead and visibly ill, whilst (3) means I really don’t want to wait till the last minute to pack my mountain of supplies.

My boyfriend promises to build me a stellar workspace in our new place, and I am bursting with ideas for new designs with my wonderful stash of gemstones and pretty vintage pins! If I survive all this writing, I promise lots of updates (time for the fall collection!) in about a month.

my precious *yes, say it in a gollum voice*: aquamarine, tourmaline, sapphire, garnet, copper rutilated quartz, more aquamarine (my fave!), blue topaz…

I’m so proud of myself!! I just finished updating and spring cleaning my website and my MySpace sites in preparation for the launching of my Summer ’07 collection. I figured I would host the pictures of the collection on my website because they have a very nifty Gallery tool.

If you’re interested, take a look!! Click on the Summer ’07 Gallery tab to see the collection. The designs will slowly become available in my Etsy shop through May.

My website: pequitobun.moonfruit.com

MySpace: myspace.com/pequitobun

Now, off to write descriptions, price and photograph (more!)
