Spring & summer craft fairs are coming 🌸

Happy Sunday!

I took a week off during the week of 4/23 for my mini sabbatical (concept inspired by Seanwes).

I did do some work, but over all, it was super mellow and relaxing.

And I have a lot less stuff now because I purged the heck out of my belongings.

(I’ll tell you more about that next week!)

Meanwhile, I’ve added a bunch of new craft shows to my calendar in the last couple of weeks.

And I put together this handy (and pretty) list for you!

I’ll be a very busy lady this coming months 😀 but if you ever wondered “when would I see Yuko?” you know where I’ll be!

I hope to see you at one (or more!) of these events soon. It’s always nice to see familiar faces 😊

You can visit my events page for links to each event. I’m regularly adding new events to my calendar, so don’t forget to check back with me.

Have an awesome day, my friend!

p.s. reminder – last day to place your Mother’s Day card/gift order online is TODAY if you’re in the U.S.! Go visit my shop here.

Affordable Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 13th, which is only 2 weeks from today.

Haven’t gotten your mom a card/gift yet?

No worries, let me show you what thoughtful and affordable gifts I’ve got for you in my shop!

{ 1. Pink Bouquet Mother’s Day Card | 2. I know Mother’s Day is Hard for You Empathy Card | 3. Blue Lilac Mother’s Day Card | 4. Mom, you rock! Chicks & Hen Mother’s Day Card | 5. Vintage Flower Vases Mother’s Day Card }

First of all, even if you (or your mom) aren’t super into gifts, you gotta send her a card!

It’s just so much better than text or email. There is something very special about opening a physical envelope and seeing your handwriting on the card ❤ And, you can display it and enjoy it every day.

And, in case you missed it in the first picture, I want to highlight something new this year – Mother’s Day Empathy card.

I know Mother’s Day can be really hard for many people.

Maybe your mom has passed away. Maybe you don’t get to see your kids on Mother’s Day. Maybe you’ve chosen not to have a relationship with your mom.

If that’s you, please know I’m sending you lots of love!!

And if you know someone who could use a little support around this time of the year, send them an empathy card.

{ 1. You Are Enough Succulent Sticker | 2. Succulent To-Do List Notepad | 3. Rooster Friends Notepad | 4. Be Gentle With Yourself Art Print (8″x10″) | 5. Green Leaf Kraft Notebook }

For moms who are into colorful and practical paper goods, I have some adorable stationery gifts that will make her smile.

(Hint: it’s totally OK to forward this share this post with your loved ones if they need suggestions for what to get you for Mother’s Day 😉)

Do you like what you see? Browse my shop for more inspirations ✨

Oh, and if you’re a procrastinator like me, just know that the order cut-off date for Mother’s Day delivery in the U.S. is Sunday, May 6th.

Have a wonderful Sunday, my friend!

p.s. If you’re a local and would like to pick out your gifts in person, come visit me at Tacoma is for Lovers Artists Craft Fair on Saturday, May 5th.

Let’s celebrate spring birthdays🐣🌸

Are you a spring baby?

Or know someone who is?

I love using happy colors in my art, and these spring-y birthday cards are perfect for making someone smile on their special day!

[1. Sloth Birthday Card 2. Folk Flower Birthday Card 3. Spring Flowers Birthday Card 4. Happy Birthday Brush Lettering Card (Green, Blue, Grey) 5. Happy Birthday Brush Lettering Card (Pink, Green, Yellow) 6. Poppy Field Birthday Card 7. Party Snail Birthday Card]

It’s always nice to have a back stock of birthday cards so when a birthday sneaks up on ya, you don’t have to make an emergency trip to a drug store.

(And end up with generic, not so pretty/thoughtful cards. Nobody wants that 🙈)

Let’s face it, getting a physical notecard on your birthday is MUCH, much more special than getting a text or email.

You can hold them, smell them, see their unique handwriting, display them, and if you’re a packrat like me, store them in a shoebox for many, many years and feel all warm and fuzzy in the midst of your decluttering session 😆

So, pull up your birthday calendar and take an inventory of your greeting card drawer stat!

If you’re running low, now is a good time to stock up on them 😉

New art prints for spring 🌸

Some people argue that Seattle doesn’t have distinct four seasons, but I beg to differ!

Even though it’s still chilly out, the days are growing longer, and I can feel the spring is near! I can almost smell the cherry blossoms in the air 🌸

Just like changing your wardrobe, I like to update my gallery wall for the new season.

That’s why I wanted to remind you of my colorful new art prints that are perfect for welcoming in the spring in your home!

1) Self-care is not Selfish (8″x10″) 2) Welcome to the World, Little One (11″x14″) 3) Sail On (8″x10″) 4) Moonlit Mountains (8″x10″)

I can see these prints in your kids’ room, office, or bedroom. Really, any place you wanna add a little color and cheer would do 😉

They’re archival prints on a very nice fine art paper. Look at the velvety texture. Swoon!!

My customers often ask me if these are my originals. Well, not quite 😀 But I agree they look so good it’s hard to believe they’re not original.

You can browse all of my new prints in my shop here.

Enjoy!

Spring & Summer Collection is here! 💐

I turned 40 on Wednesday!! 🎈🎉🎊

I finished the Seattle Gift Show on Tuesday (which is a 4-day long gift trade show, very slow, long 4 days), so instead of having a big birthday bash, I had dinner with some of my friends at my favorite Japanese restaurant, Nishino. A perfectly delicious and low-key celebration.

I enjoy getting older – I’ve grown to care less and less about what people think (or learn that people aren’t actually thinking about you 😀) as I get older. So freeing ✨

As if you need another reason to celebrate, my spring & summer 2018 collection is now available in my shop!

{Clockwise from top left: Bunny Mug Easter | Father’s Day Empathy | Cupcake Father’s Day | Welcome to the World Baby Shower | Vintage Flower Vases Mother’s Day | Mother’s Day Empathy | Self-Care is not Selfish | Sail On, Graduation | Thinking of You Pink Bouquet | Sloth Happy Birthday}

{1. Self-Care is not Selfish Print, 8″x10″ | 2. Welcome to the World, Little One Print 11″x14″ | 3. Sail On, 8″x10″ | 4. Moonlit Mountains, 8″x10″ }

I’ve also added new notepad and wrapping papers to the shop, which are not photographed here 👆

Please note that I’ll be in Hawaii with my mom this coming week (!), so any orders that come in after January 27th will be shipped during the week of February 5th.

Here is to a new decade with lots more to celebrate!

p.p.s. I’m taking a much needed vacation this coming week – no new post from me next Sunday 😉

Love is in the air ❤️

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

I don’t do anything extravagant but write Dave a little note to tell him how much I appreciate and love him ❤️

I’m in a more celebratory mood around this time of the year anyway because there is New Year’s holiday, and then Dave and my first date anniversary (11 years!), and my birthday (I’m turning 40 next week!!), and then Valentine’s Day tops it all off.

I know it’s a bit early for Valentine’s Day, but I’m so excited to share my new Valentine’s Day card and notepad with you!

Aren’t they so ADORABLE? 😍

You can order your Secret Garden Bird Notepad here and the Secret Garden Bird Valentine’s Day Card here.

And, don’t forget these classic love designs 😉

{ 1. Secret Bird Garden Card / 2. Sea Otters Holding Hands Card / 3. Croc & Birdie We Belong Together Card / 4. Cat Violin Card / 5. Pink Alpaca Heart Card / 6. Red Flowers Love Card / 7. Iguana Flowers For You Card / 8. I Love You More Than Card }

FYI – I’m going to Oahu with my mom during the last week of January, so orders that come in after January 27th won’t go out until February 6th.

Have a love-filled day​ ❤️​

Spring & summer collection preview!

As soon as I finished the last holiday craft show in December, I started working really hard to prepare for the Seattle Gift Show, which is a semi-annual gift trade show.

The show is this coming weekend (EEEEK! 😱), and my goal is to release my spring and summer collection there.

Here are some of the new designs I’ve been creating that are going to be part of the new line!

I’m working on a few more designs as we speak – birthday, congratulations, and Easter, for example.

And, new notepads and wrapping papers are in the works, too! Woo hoo!

I’ll keep you posted on the progress and let you know when they’re available in my shop 😘

Stay tuned!

2017 Holiday Fabric Collection & Notepads in Shop!

Hi Friend!

My new winter holiday fabric/wrapping paper collection is now available in my Spoonflower shop!

Check out all the designs and colors ❤

{Triangle Forest: black | black/white | smoky blue | red | light blue/white | light blue | honey yellow | red/white | green/blue/yellow | blue/red/yellow }

{Cross Stitch: smoky blue | black/white | honey yellow | red |light blue }

{Cozy Pups in Sweaters : white }

​I love these simple coordinating designs ❤ They’re so clean and versatile but have the warm handmade feeling to it.

I’m thinking about making myself a tote bag with the red Triangle Forest fabric on the outside and black/white Cross Stitch fabric on the inside. You can purchase them in fat quarters, too, which are perfect for making tea towels!

Oh, and I just recently found out they have a sweet Fill-a-Yard deal where you can buy multiple designs that fit a yard of fabric so you can buy just what you need for the project you’re working on! It’s BRILLIANT.

{I played with their 1-yard cheater quilt template. I’ve never quilted before, but this cheater design may just work!}

And don’t forget, all of my designs are also available as gift wrapping paper and wall paper.

Your creative possibilities are endless… 🙂

(*Be sure to check out Spoonflower’s holiday shipping deadlines – their standard turnaround time could take 2 weeks or more, and I’d hate for you to have to pay extra for rush order!)

I hope you can handle more cuteness today because my new notepads are in my Etsy shop now!

{ Eat a Rainbow Market List / Succulent To-Do List / Cozy Pups in Sweaters To-Do List }

How adorable are these? I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out.

I’ve been “test driving” them at home, and it makes me smile every time I use it 🙂

These will make perfect stocking stuffer gifts and/or a little pre-holiday gift for yourself so you’ll feel more organized during the holidays!

And they pair so well with some of the other goodies in my shop, don’t you think?

(Pssst, I’m working on putting together some fun holiday gift bundles, so keep that in mind as you plan your holiday shopping! More to come next week.)

Oh, and don’t forget – you’ll get FREE U.S shipping on orders of $35 or more in my Etsy shop. Just use the coupon code “HAPPY35” upon checkout!

Thank you always for supporting my work 🙂 You rock!

They’re not in the shop yet but coming in the next couple of weeks. I love paper products and use notepads all the time, so I’m extra excited to be able offer these for the holiday season. An excellent stocking stuffer!
