Well I just thought I'd get on the "Seven's' bandwagon since it's, you know, THE HK SEVENS this weekend and everyone is a bit Seven's crazy!
So I'm talking about 7 Little HK Businesses who have created something fun, creative, unique (and maybe a little bit crazy)... just like Seven's weekend!
Firstly, I want to thank all the businesses who have gotten in touch to give me words of thanks, praise and encouragement (and especially to those sending a little love back! xx). The response so far has been fabulous (just like the businesses that are filling the directory). We HK'ers are so spoilt! There is soooo much ingenuity, creativity and talent here, my expectations have been blown out of the harbour!
So the first little business (in no particular order) was born from a love affair between Design and Creativity...
Louise Hill Design creates fun, contemporary, unique artwork from a collaboration of your favourite photos, together with Louise's collection of Asian inspired images; Vintage photos, graphics & textiles; Typography and of course her creative genius! All the elements are layered with love (and lots and lots of time and detail) to create your own amazing piece of personalized artwork.
These unique canvasses can be for a creative memory of your time spent living in HK; A fun alternative to a family portrait; A gift for your family or friends (here or abroad); A cool art piece for your business... or of your weekend at the Sevens! (hmmm there's an idea!)
Check out these samples from Louise's portfolio and you'll be hooked...
(loads more on the facebook page and a new website is in the making)
Keep the creative juices flowing Louise... you are doing amazing things! Lots of LBL to you. xo
Cap East Flip Flops are all about being colourful, crazy & fun...
These funky flip flops (not to mention comfortable too!), come in a variety of crazy shapes including fish, geckos and even a fork and spoon! You can get custom designs for some birthday or wedding fun, beach or pool parties... or for your next corporate event. You can have a whole family of Cap Easts since they come in sizes to fit from 4years old and up.
Don't be shy... get some fun for your feet, after all, feet deserve to be happy too!
Sending Cap East some funky feet high fives! LBL xo
A Magnificent moment on a magnet!
And it's not just a photo either... MAGNIFICENT create frames, captions or messages with graphic design expertise at the venue, so you get the finished product right away! (Magnificent alright)
These guys can also create magnetic invitations, save the date, announcements, business cards... you name it, they can put a magnificent magnet on it!
It doesn't end there... they can also provide custom print balloons, venue decorating & more
So if you're going to have a party or event... it may as well be MAGNIFICENT!
Cheers to you for being MAGNIFICENT! (literally) ...love from LBL xo
Meet Lupo, Kino, Otto, Gina, Hari, Koo and Fin... the 7 crazy characters of the Kokoworld. These guys promote Global friendship, coming from 7 different parts of the world (do you sense a theme here?) and have their very own life story. Who know's, you might even bump into some of them this weekend, amongst the Supermans and Teletubbies!
You can also create your own organic eco-friendly printed t-shirt, with over 100 designs to choose from AND get your very own Kokonuzz character created for your little one or pet!
As the Kokonuzz say..."be happy, have fun, go nuts". Sending you a bunch of Kraziness, LBL xo
This very clever mum of 2 also creates Children's Name and Initial pillows and frames, all unique and handmade from a beautiful selection of textiles and fabrics. You can also reuse some of your sentimental clothing fabric to recreate these items for something extra special. (What a fab gift idea)
So whatever you do this weekend, don't lose a tooth! But if you do, you'll want somewhere pretty to put it!!!
Keep up the beautiful work Matt & Milly. Lots of LBL. xo
So if you know of anyone having a "little dumpling" or a birthday anytime soon, or just someone you need to thank (actually I do!)... then you know where to go for the perfect HK-centric card and paper. I reckon they'd make the cutest business cards too (new addition to the range perhaps? wink wink).
Put down that phone and pick up a pen already people!
Paper planes full of LBL coming your way Lion Rock Press! xo
Unless you like eating soap though... you probably shouldn't.
I can't even imagine how much love, time and detail goes into these pretty pre-bubble handmade creations but they are absolutely fabulous.
They would make the perfect little thank you gift, wedding favour, valentine or spectacular party feature... They speak for themselves!
Congratulations DYY! You say "Love your skin * Love the Earth"... Well we love You! LBL xo
Til next time... spread the love!
