simple delirious!

i am delirious! delirious doesn't even cut it. i feel overjoyed, appreciated, inspired, renewed uplifted and every other positive energy you can think of :)

last week i received an email for a lady named michelle ho. she told me she was browsing through etsy and saw my clay pendants on ithilien.etsy.com. she was interested in purchasing a couple from me and coincidence has it that we live so close to each other, we made a date to meet up at ikea (yea ... ikea is smack right in the middle of a shopping hub in my area) we met up and michelle finally bought 3 pendants from me. needless to say, i was totally delighted!!

from the namecard that i packed with the pendants, michelle found out i had another etsy shop pimpandpaint.etsy.com. and guess what? i received another email from her a couple of days later and she reserved 3 bookmarks and my polymer clay gecko CICAK!! holey moley!! i couldn't believe my eyes when i read the email :)) i have never had something like this happen to me! there was no words to express my joy and excitement! i was delirious :))

so today i delivered the bookmarks and gecko to her and we had lunch and chatted and laugh. more than anything else, my heart tells me that i've found a new friend, like-minded and just a joy to be with :)

michelle herself is a bath and body artist. she supplies one of a kind high quality handmade soaps on consignment to a friend's shop in bangsar and sells at various "happening" bazaar markets :) initially, she started making soaps becos her baby daughter's skin didn't take to commercial soaps too well. it is amazing how something that started out as a family thing can turn into a business venture. and now her handmade soaps are selling like hotcakes :) check out her website at ~ The Kinder Soap Company

these are some of her beautiful and kind-to-the-skin soaps ... (from left) 3-bar gift set, dreamtime soap, the breakfast bar.

  3. Hey Lady,
    What a wonderful story, and best of all, you found a new friend! I'm drooling for those pendants, but I KNOW there's no way they could reach me in time. Ah well, maybe for DD's birthday, she'll begin driving this year, she might need an angel's wing or two.....

  11. awwww.... ladies!! you are all so sweet! i'm kinda overwhelmed now actually ... to get such encouraging words for all of you :) and for putting up with my nonsense sometimes :)) i feel so loved ^.^

    and yes... it was so cool to find a local like-minded "arty" friend who appreciates handmade... i have a couple of local "arty" friends who i'll always treasure (and shop supplies with ... hihihi!!)

    i can tell you it is not so easy here to find people who appreciates handmade, becos of the way we have be socialized to believe that handmade is inferior ... that is soooo sad!! but i'm glad that the new generation is changing this perception, and looking at handmade in a totally different light, in an artistic light :) whoot!!

    HANDMADE RULEZ!!!
