A gift box

Added on by helene park.

My friend Sunny's bday was coming up. To gift her a sun-shaped mineral, I wanted to make a box with the word "duck," because her Korean name is "Sun-Duck." Get it? 

Scrounged up some materials lying around - duck tape, paper, wire to hold the mineral down, a dot sticker to leave a tiny message, yellow kraft paper and an old box - to make this duck-faced gift box.

Toasty Time pop-up shop

Added on by helene park.

Sometimes I put my business socks on and pop up a shop selling my hoodies. Had the pleasure of serving up some Toasties at the Facebook HQ pop-up shop space. Loved their simple wooden boxes in incremental sizes!

👁️ ❤️ U

Added on by helene park.

To celebrate my friend and Toasty Time business partner Cindy's bday, I looked for ideas on her son's Instagram page full of his amazing drawings. These Valentine cards with " 👁️ ❤️ U " was so awesome and simple I had a lot of fun embroidering the design onto a knitted sweater. Made a "Les Garçons des Cindy" label to honor her sons and in reference to "Comme des Garçons."

Living in a small Brooklyn apt

Added on by helene park.

I'm quite pleased with myself how cozy I got this little Brooklyn bedroom to feel. With bare boned floors, cage-like window gates, permanent ceiling light fixtures that I didn't want to use, I got a bunch of curtain rods, brackets and curtains from Ikea to cover it all up and got it what my friend Woody called, "Insane Asylum Chic."
