The Butterfly Effect – Brighten Your Mood

Butterfly brooch pin

Butterfly effect, an interesting theory, in some way signifies hope and mindfulness that a minute change can have a large effect somewhere else.

In my opinion, it supports the ‘random act of kindness’ gesture. A small act of kindness may have a great effect elsewhere that we may not be aware of, but if we continue to believe so, and continue to be kinder, perhaps we are inculcating a more compassionate society, bit by bit.

There are so much beauty in butterflies. They are such gorgeous creatives that flutter their wings, almost as though producing a graceful piece of dance with the wind.

Happy Birthday from BelLeeBeadz

Bel_LisBirthday

Growing up, birthdays had been disasters, I dreaded to celebrate my birthday. Age helped me come to terms with plan gone awry, and to see the ‘cracks’ of imperfection as an opportunity to experience things beyond my constricted frame of mind.

This is my first birthday present this year. A very lovely bracelet from a very good friend, Belinda (belleebeadz.com). Belinda is a very special and nurturing friend, she is my go-to friend when someone broke my heart, or when I was stranded in a foreign land (oh right, did I not mention that I am a natural magnet to dramas, where do you think my bizarre imagination comes from!?!), or when I needed directions to places.

Belinda makes beautiful jewellery, and she always picked the most suitable pieces for me. I am a hard-core fashion criminal, and I will be thrown into the fashion prison if I attempted complex style, so I go for simplicity and basics. The bracelet she chose for me this year is exactly that.

Relocating Beginning of 2015! Special Discount!

Relocating

We are relocating! The little excited kangaroo has already bagged our label (pun intended!) in his little pouch, but we are not leaving just yet. In fact, we won’t be leaving until beginning of 2015. Although we are not leaving just yet, this announcement is not at all premature.

With our relocation, there will be drastic changes made to the products that we will continue and discontinue selling. We are uncertain if we would resume supply of craft supplies (yarns, hooks, eyes etc) after we have settled down, as shipping costs and importation tax may result in high selling prices which in turn may affect cost-effectiveness to sell these items; but we are certain that we will not be supplying the supplies for at least 6-8 months into 2015.

With that foresight, we are offering Special Discount for bulk orders before we leave.

Butterfly Brooch Pins for Autism Awareness

ASD_butterfly_Bag-copy-2

Butterfly, commonly used as an autism representative within the Autism community. I am not certain of the original significance, but my depiction of the relation extends to a multitude of significance.

A common saying, ‘When you meet one person on the (autism) spectrum, you meet ONE person on the spectrum.’. Each person on the spectrum is unique, the traits may be shared, but the gravity of each trait varies. There is no rushing and hurrying a person with autism to progress and grow like the neurotypical counterparts; like a butterfly, there is no rushing of the caterpillar to turn into the butterfly you want. It takes as long as it needs, and if you allowed it, it will turn into a beautiful butterfly. It may not be the ‘standard’ butterfly that you expected, but if you take a step back, you will come to appreciate the beauty of it, despite the difference.

Single Amigurumi Wedding Patterns

singlepatterns

Our previous wedding designs (most of them), are now available as single pattern. It’s a bit of saving if you buy them in the set as they were designed in though, so do your own math.

Other designs that come in themes, such as Bella & Wally, the beach couple, or Charles & Ling, the modern Chinese wedding couple, they will remain as paired patterns.

Upgraded and Revamped Website!

moving

I am taking a term break from studies, so I am catching up with work and everything else!

First thing first, the website was due for system upgrade, and so I thought I might as well give it a major facelift! What was I thinking, of course, I was thinking of responsive theme for mobile users (but, I still need to refine a few tweaks to the mobile site, it’s usable and functional, but a little lacking in the aesthetic department, so please bear with me for a bit) – I mean, honestly, we (I mean me) shop on desktop, tablet, and phone! Hence, the revamped website!

Amigurumi Pattern – High School Lovers

PT-AnnaAlex_01

Featuring the budding love – high school sweethearts amigurumi pattern.

Anna and Alex were high school sweethearts. Life happened, and they went separate ways. Today, more than a decade later, their paths cross again and pick up where they left off. Some people call that fate or destiny; we call it second chance.
