its a new year! time to move onto new things! but id like to say a quick goodbye to 2012 first <3
at the end of 2011 during the holiday season, i released the first ‘collection’ for milkbbi. a small group of products including shirts, books, postcards etc. the response was great & several more mini collections were relesed throughout 2012~ each one more successful !!
2012 was definitely a year where i learned a lot and tried lots of new things~ ive shipped products all over the world and shared my work with so many people. i did something i never planned with the milkbbi backpacks and designed and created a real mass produced product, more than just a printed item~ which is something i would love to keep exploring!
when i look back on the things i created i feel very satisfied. the only problem is that i want to do more! i would love to see milkbbi continue to grow in the way it is now~ naturally & slowly ~ nothing too forced and planned
i dont know what will happen next. i dont know how long i will keep this going~ its great that people love it, because i love it too! but this is really just a project for me~ its really fun & i dont want it to get too serious~
ive said it before, but at the end of this month i will going to costa rica and staying for 3 months~ during that time the shop will be closed! i had a hard time deciding to do that~ and honestly am still worried if it is a good decision. but oh well!~ it will give everyone time to save up their money for the new collections! haha ^^ ~ but really, i have so many ideas of things i want to make this year, and a 3 month break from doing orders everyday will give me lots of time to create new things!
& my blog n all that internet presence stuff will still be very active :> so we wont miss each other <3
most importantly! T H A N K - Y O U !! to everYBODY who has supported milkbbi over the last year! there are so many of you & i appreciate you ALL sincerely!! i feel like we are almost friends! thank you for everything~ whether you have purchased from the shop or just follow me on tumblr or maybe you just stop by every month or so~ i really do appreciate it <3 and im glad i can create things that people appreciate so much U u U <3
this is so long!! congrats to you if you read it!! ^^
its a new year! 2013! i cant wait to see how it goes ~ :>
