Happy Customer Photos

I haven’t done one of these for ages because my blog was down over Halloween when there were so many Ghost photos but they’re still adorable so let’s see!

It’s always great to see how my on-demand products look in real life. Caecilia picked up a couple of my spooky designs from Redbubble and they look so cute!

My Happy Apple brooch has been quite popular since I added him from a customer request. He fits right in with all Katie‘s apple themed accessories!

Seeing your photos of my Kawaii Japan surprise box – like this one by Marina – always makes me want to put together a new box. It will happen once I get some time to plan a fun new theme.
