Kawaii Crafts Feature: danadamki

This morning I found a new favorite Etsy shop called “danadamki”, created by German illustrator Dana Zimmerling. She designs everything, from adorable wrapping paper patterns to brooches and everything inbetween. I love her simplistic style and bold color palettes, and each design and creature she makes is so cute and full of character!

Here are a few of my favorites. Click through to go to her Etsy listing:

Spring Craft Show & A New Online Shop

Over the weekend, I shared a booth at the Fred Heutte Sensational Spring Arts & Craft Show with Jess and Michelle. There were over 90 vendors and a couple food trucks present. This was definitely the largest show I have ever participated in. I didn’t have very much time to make things for the show since the month before I vended at the Greenbrier Public Library’s Shobou Con. Even though I didn’t have very many items and I didn’t sell much at all, I had a great time hanging with my booth mates, meeting some amazing other artists and crafters, and listening to two local musicians who set up right outside our tent. I also debuted some new items, including Yeticorns, Ninja Cats, Ninja Bunnies, and Half Moon clutches. Here are a few photos from the show:

New Shop + New Items

I recently reopened my shop on Storenvy. I still have my Etsy shop, and I doubt I will ever shut it down. But on Etsy, there are fees for everything. I already keep my prices low compared to the amount of work that goes into making my toys, so those Etsy fees are painful. Storenvy doesn’t take any fees and you can fully customize your storefront.


For most of my new items and for custom items, I’ll be posting on my Storenvy shop, or simply shlii.com. Here are some of my new items that are currently available or will be available soon:

Lavender Yeticorn, $25

Ninja Critters, $12.50 each

Super Kawaii Etsy Treasury

I’ve been on Etsy for a couple years now, but I never put together a treasury until recently. I have NO idea why I waited so long, because it was really fun to work on. I really can’t wait to have some free time to make more treasuries. Not only was it fun, but it also gave me a happiness boost, because it felt good so pay it forward and do something nice for other crafters. I posted the treasury seven days ago and it already has 92 views! Super Excited!
