Therefore, If I had a robot friend, this is how he would look:
DELIGHTFUL STATIONERY & BEAUTIFUL WEDDING SUITES
Olive Hue is a boutique stationery studio started by Jane Jeon and formed out of love for the arts. In an age of emails, texts, and all things digital, we are on a mission to revive the lost art of written communication. Inspired by the outdoors, organic materials, illustrative linework, patterns, calligraphy, and fresh colors, Olive Hue provides delightful bespoke stationery to fit all occasions!
I've known Youmee for about 15 years!! Crazy how time flies. When I sat down with her and her fiance, Scott, we discussed different ideas. I had suggested going with a school theme because Youmee and Scott are both teachers. But this idea was a no-go because they thought that it would become too childlike. (I'm still looking for a couple who are teachers that want to go with a sophisticated and fun school house theme!) So I designed a suite that would reflect the both of them and their wedding day. Youmee is feminine and soft. Scott, on the outside seems rough, but is very nice and gentile also. I thought that it would be nice to bring the summertime, mountainy, greenery, flowery design together and make it elegant. This whole suite was really fun for me to design. It was by far the LARGEST order that I've had to date. This girl is having close to 600 people at her wedding and 2 separate receptions on the same day!! That's a Korean wedding for you! Making 400 invitations was definitely a sight to see! I should've taken pictures of the behemoth of invitations sitting in my house.
Colors: Amber, Olive green
Theme: Gardens & Flowers

I visited the Renegade craft fair for a very brief hour and half this past sunday...I fell in love with this:
although I want this one in gold, not much of a silver jewelry person...found here
I wasn't prepared for all the goodies that I loved and lacked the abundance in my wallet so since they're on etsy, I will definitely keep them on my wishlist!

I searched high and low for local shops that would sell these and found a reliable store in....North Carolina. Waited patiently for 3 weeks and finally got the entire package! inks + books!! right now, I'm the happiest girl in the world!
Ziller inks were recommended from a calligrapher that I happened to meet through facebook. He's my friend's dad and he's an amazing illustrator and calligrapher. I took his recommendation up about the inks and I absolutely LOVE them! The black is carbon based so it's intense and oh so loverly to calligraphy with!
I was also so excited to get this book too! It gives the main instructional material from a book that is no longer available. Goal: master Spencerian script. It's gorgeous to look at and so smooth and elegant! Got another book that's letterpressed and to die for.
I feel geeky with this post, but I'm very HAPPY right now.

A few years ago I used to work for an art gallery in Alhambra. At that time, we had a show featuring 4 Pixar artists. They had put a book together called, "Ancient book of Myth and War"... Since then I've been following their blogs, Lou Romano, Nate Wragg, Don Shank, Scott Morse...all incredibly talented, uber creative guys! Just wanted to share how talented they are...Lou Romano's always sell out at the gallery show!

Lately, I just cut my hair super short, like above my chin short...but I've been obsessed with hair accessories and hats! Don't know why! I guess it's my girly side exposing her true colors!
I think these are worth a gander...they're so cute!
all from.....drum roll please.....TARGET! and they're all $7.99....so worth it!
all these are from Anthropologie...They're definitely not Target prices, but so darn cute too! I love each one of these. I imagine myself in different scenarios wearing the different hats. teehee...
