new website!

Oct 29, 2014


I finally got around to redesigning my portfolio! It's still under construction, so you may run into some bugs... it's hard doing it all by myself! It can take a while to figure out even the simplest things! I am continuing to add more work and fun new projects, so please stay tuned! I am so excited because I also have a shop that will be opening on the website. There is currently one item available right now!    — Minna

stay curious

Oct 28, 2014

Here are some great words to keep in mind for the week! Curiosity can be an important part of life because it leads us to try new things. There are so many things you can learn, you just have to be open to new ideas. If you want it, go after it!   — Minna

trying to organize...

Oct 24, 2014

This is the current state of my messy desk space.. I am not sure what to do because I need a larger table, but my apartment is too small! I still don't have a chair yet, so i've been sitting on the floor doing work...haha oh well! Hopefully i'll be able to find the perfect one soon! Have a wonderful friday everyone!  — Minna

watercolor patterns

Sep 19, 2014


Lately, i've been designing a bunch of patterns using watercolor paint, and i'm really loving the result! I'm trying to think of what I could do with these prints...any ideas? I'd love to turn these into fabrics, or maybe even grift wrap!   — Minna 

i am back!

(all photos from my instagram)

Yes yes, I am still alive, do not worry everyone! I got back from Seattle a few weeks ago, but I took some time to get used to "normal" life, but it's gonna be crazy soon because I am actually planning to move back to Seattle in the next 1-2 months! Ahh! So it's been a bit stressful these days, but I am trying to stay on top on things and just stay calm...

Spending the summer in Seattle was so much fun, and I got to visit a lot of places and do a bunch of tourist-y things. I will share more soon!   — Minna

few weeks left in seattle

Aug 14, 2014


I've been pretty busy these past several weeks, visiting lots of places, and eating tons of food! I have so many photos to share with you all. I have about two weeks left here in Seattle which makes me so sad, but I will be visiting again very soon! Be sure to follow along on instagram for daily photos of my trip!   — Minna

lady yum macarons

Jul 21, 2014


Last week, I attended the pre-opening of Lady Yum in Kirkland, located right near the waterfront. I have never really tried macarons before, and I must say, they were delicious! They are like crispy pillows of goodness with sweet cream inside, mmm. Lady Yum offers a wide variety of unique flavors like mango habanero and maple bacon, and some classic ones as well which includes my favorite, salted caramel! The shop also features various wine selections and local artisan food products. The doors officially opened last friday, so if you are in the area, I highly recommend you stop by!   — Minna

homemade sauces

Jul 17, 2014


I really want to try these homemade recipes for basic sauces! I never knew some of them were so easy to make! I'm definitely going to try the barbecue sauce and the chimichurri sauce. Yummm!   — Minna
