Roll Up Your Sleeves and Get to Work

I have never been more motivated to work. It is so exciting to sit down and focus on my own business. And it helps to think that I only have two solid days a week when my baby is in daycare to work. It makes all this time more valuable. One of the main difficulties…

The Business of Mother’s Day

It is strange to think I will soon be celebrating my first Mother’s Day. I used to think it was more of a Asian-mom-guilt-tripping Day because it was always one of those days that my Mom reminded me and my brother that we didn’t express our love enough to her on that particular day. I…

Behind the Craft: DIY Helix Dino Doll

I would never presume to be an expert at sewing, stitching or dollmaking. But I pick up on crafts skills pretty quickly. I can easily analyze an item and think of a million ways to do something similar with the skills I’ve collected throughout the years. I know there are tons of patterns available for…

The Art of Giving Up and Starting Over

Hello my baby, For the past week, I’ve been trying to wake up earlier to blog daily. So far, so good. One of the reasons I’m trying to be more productive is because I don’t want to pass on my bad traits onto you. I tend to be inconsistent in my efforts and I tend…

Shop Updates: One Month Later

We opened our etsy shop RawrAcademy on March 5. After a month, we still haven’t gotten any sales. However, we have managed to list over 35 items. So we’re getting there, I can feel it. Greg has been working hard at the SEO aspect of things, as well as the social media connectivity. After asking…

Do What You Love When You’re Ready, Sort of

When my boyfriend and I decided to have a baby, it was easy. We definitely knew we wanted kids together and we just decided to start a family sooner than later. That’s a bit unconventional for most people, but waiting a few months or a few years would not have changed our decision to have…

Work That Makes You Proud

Hello my little baby, I felt you move the other day. It was beautiful. We created you! You’re moving! You can hear me! You even went to your first concert (RAC is amazing!) Nothing about your development fails to delight me. You keep growing, my little orange, okay? I’m so proud of you. I carry…

Our Etsy Shop is Open!

Hello my large plum, Great news! Your parents have been working hard, and we’ve finally opened up our Etsy shop! There’s still a lot more to play around with, but at least we got the ball rolling. Sometimes in business, you can’t wait for everything to be perfect, you just have to do it, and…

Dear Baby…

Hello My Baby. I know your name is not baby, and it’s Daddy’s personal pet peeve when people say things like: “Oh! That’ll be perfect for Baby!” instead of “for THE baby”. Silly Daddy. You’re about the size of a green olive right now,  and we don’t know yet whether you’re a boy or a…
