Casually walking through the Seattle Uwajimaya and scanning the candy isles at the checkout stands as usual, I spotted some bright boxes brimming with cuteness. I could not resist buying two of the shiny packets ($3.99 each!)...
I waited to open them till I got home. Here they are on my desk. I was so excited to find out what treasure the packets are hiding inside...
I had twelve options:
I would have loved, loved to get the hedgehog (#12)...
but as it turned out I have received #1 (parakeet in a miso soup bowl) and #4 (bunny in a pot).
Which one is your favorite?
Here is the link to the Japanese manufacturer's (called: Reform Entertainment) website if you would like to fill up with some cute chi + inspiration for the day! ^,,^

All the yarns in Becoming Art 's Etsy shop are hand spun and dyed by the very talented proprietress Lisa. She is passionate about color and the creative process of making unique custom yarn.
"I really love to do what I do passionately and with the freedom to be random (yet focused), and to be myself. I want others to feel the same way about the fiber, yarn or other product they buy from me."
With her new logo she was looking to "generate a feel that is creative, beautiful, unique, strong and changing/growing (hence Becoming Art)." Just the kind of challenge that delights me the most! You can see what manifested in the end. Designing her logo was a magical/spiritual feeling process as if I had myself participated in the timeless, feminine, ancient craft of spinning and dyeing yarn.
See, buy Lisa's work here:

My Theo Chocolate logo/packaging work and its story was featured in a brand new graphic design book: LogoLounge 5: 2,000 International Identities by Leading Designers. Cathy Fishel from Gardner Design interviewed me last summer. I quite forgot about it and it was such a pleasant surprise to get a copy of the book the other day. Amazon link below (the book has a 4.5 star rating).
