New Service Offering :: Gift of Happiness!

Hello friends!

I hope your 2015 is off to a good start.  I had very nice holidays and am feeling energized for another year full of adventures in creativity!

Many of you know that I’m pursuing my dream of making a living doing what I love, i.e. being an illustrator, while working at my non-profit day job.  This year, my goal is to “do more.”  I tend to be a “planning” person and prefer to know what to expect and the details before I act on something.  It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes keep me from “doing” it.  Doing nothing may feel “safe,” but it would not help me achieve my goal.

Last spring, I started my 365 day happiness drawing challenge to practice art and putting myself out there every day. I will continue the practice until I hit the 365 day mark! I also wanted to have a new project which will challenge me to grow in different ways.

As I mentioned in my blog post before the New Year, I’m launching a new subscription service this year!!  I’m calling it a “Gift of Happiness.”  It is available to purchase now on my Etsy store!

Here is FAQ on this new offering!

Q: What is Gift of Happiness subscription?
A: It is a year-long subscription to receive something from me every month from January through December 2015.

Q: What do I get?
A: All kinds of things! It could be my art prints, a pack of greeting cards, a pretty tea towel, a mug, an original drawing, etc. I would also love to send you a personalized postcard or a note when I’m traveling! I don’t have a specific plan yet because it also depends on what I’m inspired to create throughout the year.

↓Sneak peek for January – you will receive an 8×10 print of “Terrarium Dream”

Q: What benefits do I get by subscribing to this service?
A: There are many 🙂 For one, you will have something to look forward to every month – you will receive adorable, unique, and high-quality product you can use or give away as a gift (last minute birthday party invite anyone?). By getting an annual subscription, you’re also getting a discount on individual products – this is my way of saying thank you for supporting an independent artist 🙂

Q: Can I sign up after January?
A: Yes, as long as there is a spot open! If you subscribe later, you will receive past months’ items, or equivalent, grouped with your first month’s shipping.

Q: How many spots are available for 2015?
A: Because of the personalized nature of this service, I’m limiting this service to 20 spots this year.

Q: What if I really like what I get and want to order more?
A: Most of the items will be available to purchase individually on my Etsy shop!

Q: How much is the 12-month subscription?
A: $215 for a 12-month subscription including free US shipping! It is also available to ship overseas with additional shipping fee. You will receive a thank you gift if you purchase by Friday January 9, 2015!

*I’m also offering a limited number of bi-monthly subscription (Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sept, Nov) for $120. Please see the listing here.

Q. Can I purchase the subscription as a gift?
A: Absolutely! Please add a note when you purchase the subscription and let me know their name and shipping address.

Please feel free to contact me  if you have any questions!

Looking forward to connecting with you more in the coming year!

  1. Yuko, what a great idea! Good luck with it! I really enjoy your happiness posts and incorporating it into a gift/subscription seems perfect. I too sometimes overplan. I’ve been posting for weeks all my ideas for 2015, but I finally sat down and started a painting! – Eileen
