Save elephants and Rhinos (part 2)

March Outfit Design

1. T-shirt
I like to design stuff with geometric shapes. Here are the two sketches I like: an elephant with a bandaid on his tusk and a boy hug an elephant. Since there won’t be tagline on the t-shirt, I think the bandaid one is more clear. Ryker loves the t- shirt I made for him, and he showed his daddy that the elephant’s tusk is ouch! The elephant needs help! I am so pleased that even two year old can explain the issue to another person with simple graphic.

2. Elephant necklace
It’s a great activity for toddler to learn the words and also to improve the fine motor skill. I wrote the word “elephant” on the paper and asked him to find each letter; then he put letters and other decorated elements through a string to make his own necklace. He had so much fun to make it, and also made one for me. 🙂 He even remembered how to spell the word “elephant!”

Save Elephants and Rhinos ( Part 1 )

coverpage

On September 24, 2016, people in cities throughout the world will march as one voice to save Elephants and Rhinos. There are 94 elephants killed everyday for their tusks, and a rhino is slaughtered once every 9-11 hours for its horn. I felt shamed after reading all the“ shocking stories and knew that I need to take some actions to support these giants. We will join the global march this Saturday in SF. For my boss, this is too difficult to understand, so first we spent the whole week to learn about the elephants (Rhinos next week ), and then slowly tell him about why we need to save them.

Celebration

Overwhelmed January

It has been a while since my last holiday post last year. January is kind of overwhelmed to me because my boss’s big one-year-old birthday is coming! ( Can’t believe he is almost one~ > <)

There will be more birthday celebrating details to share later; I am very excited about the ideas and hope they will all come to live ( crossed fingers.) In order to get more funding for his big one, I also took more freelance projects. Sleepless and pressure are going to continue till his birthday. I felt like I am working on my “new mom” thesis project.

Merry Xmas!

‘finalo

It’s the most busiest time of the year for most babies. They need to be taken photos, photos and more photos because they are just too cute with Santa, xmas tree, family, or any decoration. One of the bigger project is to be taken baby’s portrait for the xmas card. Since this is my boss’s first xmas, I wanted to shoot the classic portrait of him- be naked with xmas lights and hat. I setup the simple stage in his room, and he seemed to like being naked and playing with the lights. The shoot was successful. There were so many cute images; it’s hard to just pick one. I posted couple more image here in case you can’t get enough of him. 🙂

Flowers for his lady // Avery’s B-day

avery-birthday_5a

Avery turned big 1 on 11/20, and it’s also her mommy’s birthday. My boss and I decided to have a double date to celebrate their first birthday together. This time I wanted to make the flower gift that was romantic and classic- roses and chocolate.

Since she couldn’t eat chocolate yet, I replaced it with baby cookie. The Cookies were carefully wrapped with tissue paper and hidden inside the two pink roses. The color of light pink rose represents sweetness and innocence, and two roses means let’s be together. This is the perfect representation for their pure relationship.Continue reading
