I’ve been obsessed…

It’s March (almost April, actually), and I’ve been listening to nothing but B1A4 and Eddy Kim on repeat for the longest time, lol.

If you’re not aware, B1A4 is a Korean pop group and Eddy Kim is a Korean singer! Both of their music styles really help to soothe me when I’m feeling bad or sick or something, but also help me to work efficiently. It’s so hard for me to work in silence, honestly. I have to blast my favorite songs/groups and really get into the groove if I want to have a productive day, haha.

I know a lot of people just see the words “Korean pop” and roll their eyes (and probably immediately leave), but I promise you that it can be a very wonderful (and addictive) music genre! I personally think the group I mentioned before, B1A4, has a lot of great songs that I actually think many non-Kpop lovers might like! This song actually caught my mom’s attention a while back, and she’s still in love with it today. If you’d like a few more to get a better feel, some more of my favorites include this, this, this, and this. ♥ Please please please check them out, they’re all great songs!!!

As for Eddy Kim, I don’t actually think he’s really in the “kpop” category. He has a smoother sound and I absolutely love it. I’ve only just downloaded his most recent mini album, but I’ve already picked out a few that I’m deeming as favorites: Apologize (the video up top) and Sing Sing Sing! They’re both really great songs, oh my goodness. I’m addicted, lol.

Okay, so!!! If you check any of these songs out, please let me know what you think!!! I’d be glad to hear your opinion, and maybe even recommend more if you’d like~ (-:

This was my first post in a while (since December, I think , oops), but I’m trying to pick everything back up now that there’s less chaos happening, lol. I’m still busy, but in a much better way. (-:

Have a great day, everyone!

Happy December!

Hi there, everyone!

Can you believe it’s already December 1st? That means there are only 24 more days until Christmas~ Are you excited? I know I am!

The beginning of December also marks the official end of our Holiday Giveaway that was held for the month of November. I’ll be randomly picking a winner soon, and I’ll be announcing the lucky person in this month’s newsletter! (So keep your eyes peeled, hehe~)

I’m in the process of adding four new pillows to the shop as well, and they should be added just in time for the winner to make their choice~ ♥

December always ends up being a very busy month, what with holiday shopping, filling orders, decorating, spending time with family… It’s quite chaotic!

I just want to wish all of the participants from the contest one last “good luck”, and I hope whoever wins will enjoy their prize~

Are you guys as excited as I am?! ♥

Fall-tastic

Hey, guys!

Did I ever mention how much I love the Fall season? Well, let’s just say it’s a lot.

Cool air, leaves changing, camp fires and s’mores… I love it all!

Something about this wonderful weather just inspires me to work harder. (Maybe it’s the looming presence of Christmas being just around the corner? Lol.) I always start knitting again around this time of year, too. Summer isn’t always a fun season to knit in, unless you’ve got plenty of A/C. 🙂

A lot of people I know like Fall because of the overabundance of “pumpkin spice” items that pop up everywhere around this time. Eh, I guess I’ve never really been a fan of pumpkins…

Most of my family can’t stand cooler/colder weather, so it makes me wonder where I got my love for the cold from. It’s a mystery, I guess!

What is your favorite season, and why? I’m curious~

Cotton Ginning Days 2014

It’s October, and you know what that means: it’s time for the Cotton Ginning Days Festival in Dallas, NC! 🙂 The festival features lots of demonstrations from “back in the day”, as well as a plethora of tractors, crafts, music, and food.

I have a craft booth here, of course, and it’s loaded down with (you guessed it) lots of cute pillows!!! Video games, social media, cartoons, movies/books… I’ve got pillows from just about every “geeky” category you could think of!

If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello! (and if you already have, well, good for you!)
