Happy Birthday Caydi Doll

I can’t believe it has been two years since I started Caydi Doll! Happy Birthday Caydi Doll! I am doing a small giveaway for this celebration on the Facebook page so if you are interested in winning a set of Hmong inspired pillows, check it out. Will end this February 1st 2014.

Happy Birthday CaydiDoll Giveaway 2014

As for my plans for 2014, I’m making some changes to My Hmongy Pillows once again. I had a sudden halt with some technical difficulties last year but am now back on track. The changes will be in the size, design and fabric. I’m wrapping up on some of them and will have them available for purchase again at my Etsy shop soon by end of February. Some pillows will also be available for purchase at a local shop in Sacramento, CA by late May. Will have details on that once that happens! This will definitely help save on shipping if you live in Sacramento area or know someone who can get a hold of them. J

As for my little dolls, they are constantly a work in progress. I don’t know why but I’m so meticulous about them. Any little thing can ruin the entire doll for me. I guess that is why I just can’t seem to get them done but it’s alright, just simple obstacles that I can learn from and overcome. 😉

This is really pushing it for me, but I was thinking about making a YouTube channel to show short videos of my pillows. Hmm? Maybe not. I don’t know if I would have any patience for it but I’ll see. I might feel ambitious one day and do it. Haha.

Have a wonderful day! By the way, it is snowing! ^_^

I met the one and only Kajua from iheartHmong.com. She was so sweet and fashionable!

This bubble tea was a bit too sweet and creative on the bottom but I still enjoyed it!
Got my sister in law to make me some pho! Her pho broth was very tasty!
