2012 has been great, and I want to thank everyone who has supported Supahcute. I’m so grateful to my friends, both old and new, and to my community of fans/followers. In 2012, I had the opportunity to curate my first art show. I attended some cool shows; the ones that stick out in my mind are Giant Robot’s Biennale 3 and Susie Ghahremani’s recent solo show. I added a bunch of cute toys to my growing collection, including Potato Baby, Crabby Bear, and Bearycalm. And, now I have amazing stickers designed by kawaii artist Jerrod Maruyama.
Instead of the usual year-end wrap up, I want to look ahead to 2013 and share a few things I’m excited about. I’ll be curating another group art show at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. Save the date for May 11, 2013! I’ll be collaborating with Leanna on some fun surprises for the opening reception, so stay tuned!
Everyone loves the new Supahcute stickers, and I want to create other products like buttons/badges. Once a while, someone will ask me if/when there will be a Supahcute booth at a certain event. Well, I read that Designer Con 2013 will be a 2 day event (November 9-10, 2013). So you may see the first ever Supahcute booth next year!

I also plan to blog less and write more in 2013. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and I think I was most prolific during my 20s. Then, I hit a creative rut and just stopped writing. About four years ago, I started a new job and since then, I’m always “too tired” when I get home. I still find the energy to blog, tweet/facebook, etc., but there is never enough time to sit down and write something new.
So I’ve decided that 2013 is the year that I return to my true love – writing. That doesn’t mean that Supahcute.com is going on hiatus! Blogging is my other love, and I genuinely enjoy sharing my cute obsessions with everyone. You may not see me online as often as before, but hey, I’ll still be here! Best wishes to everyone for a healthy and prosperous 2013!!
