Belated 1 year blog anniversary post



Hello♥

2/22/10 was my 1 year blog anniversary! Which I am late blogging about due to being sick for the past week :( so I finally put together a collage of my past posts to just glance over at my 1 year of blogging :D

I cannot express this gratitude that I have to all my readers and the amazing ladies I have become friends with, I am truly thankful for all the LOVE I have gotten over the year of me starting this blog.
I originally started blogging to fill the loneliness I had from moving from FL to MN away from all that I knew of and the friends/loved ones that I have left behind to start this new journey of my life with my BF Zach *which this is his home state*

As I stated in my first post "I have decided to write a blog to share portion of my life with friends and family. I have just made a big move to a new state,city so its a new chapter of my life. I donno if I'll be a good blogger but Im just gonna be me here" I start blogging to write about my everyday things and hoped to make new friends in the process and that is what exactly happened and more, I never expected my blog to be interesting to others nor that I would have so many followers. ^__^
I cannot tell you how much this blog have brought joy to my lonely soul, it really do mean alot to me to know that you see me as I am, here to meet lovely ladies and share common interest and most of all I am happy to know that we can share the same love for another!♥

with the 1 year of blogging I have gotten nothing but LOVE from all of you! I never had one single hate comment nor hate mail and I am really grateful for that because my blog/me are here to LOVE and not to spread hate or negativity, so THANK YOU SO MUCH for keeping my blog a place of LOVE and a place for us to all connect :) Really I am so thankful for everything, I just wish I could find more time to do more like posting, repaying love packages and get to know more lovely ladies but time have been the main issue :(

as I was putting together this collage it made me reflect on all that happened this past year and I think having a blog is a plus to remind you of what happened and makes you appreciate things that happened even more. I really cannot believe that I got to meet so many amazingly sweet ladies here on blogger when we are all complete strangers but with the common interest we have become friends and can share the love for one and another, that is the one magical thing about blogger is that we can connect with people that you can share a connection with whether its your love for beauty, art, craft, photography or anything else that we can all feel a connection with :D

Thank you so much for the amazing 1 year, Im not sure if I am a good blogger since I talk about whatever I feel like and I dont have set criteria theme for my blog but I am just being me here and that is why it makes me more thankful is that you guys find it interesting XD
Thank you♥

well enough of my nonsense, back to my topic of this post :D
I have this photo of my cork board that I started putting all the letter I have received from all the sweet ladies I have met through blogger to remind myself of how much love there are in this place, and how we can share the love for one another even if we all started out as strangers. Keep me positive and happy when I see this board♥




You might get tired of me saying LOVE and LOVE and more LOVE but LOVE is really important in my life. when I was growing up, I grew up with little to no love. All I knew of was sadness, disappointments, being robbed of my childhood and innocence. I dont really talk about my past but I went through alot of hardship and bad events growing up which left me with heavy depression but what made me continue with life is to stay positive at all time and follow your dream no matter what. SO spread love and not hate at all times ♥


In the beginning I started entering other bloggers contest which I was new to blogging community I had no idea how things worked at first but I was desperate of meeting people so I thought it was such a amazing idea how people hosted contest, see other girls creativeness and meeting new people at the same time. Now blogging community have kinda changed I feel like people have made their blogs more commercialized and is there to get big with sponsorships or something....with no heart in their blogs. I miss seeing more personal blogs and where we can host contest just to see other girls creativeness and talk about whatever we please.

here are some look I have done in the past for contests not much since we kinda all stopped having fun with contests which I am planning to host another contest sometime in the near future :D

LOVE for makeup & beauty

I get lost in what to write about sometimes but I just end up making a post about what interests me and the stuff that I wanna share with other girls that I think that is amazing*beauty related stuff usually* :P I do have alot I wanna post about but been either too tired or drained to put any effort which I am trying to fix at the moment by finding more time and managing my time better :3
keep your passion alive!! wow that came out of nowhere LOL but its true dont let your passion die that is one of the things in life that will keep you happy is your passion for things you love.

my passion as you know if you look over my posts are*not in any special order*
1.art/photography
2.crafting/creating anything with my hands/designing
3.anything beauty related stuff :3



In march before my birthday last year Zach have surprised me with Dslr Nikon D90 since he knew one of my passion was photography since I work alot with photographers he thought it would be nice if I start my own as well it was really thoughtful gift which I have been neglecting lately =_=;; I need to start taking up photography again!

here are some items I took last year

LOVE for photography


eki photos


Thanks to my blog I started up drawing again after years of not drawing, I truly feel a sense of joy when I draw but my hands are so rusty it hurts after a while :/ I wish I was young again when imagination just came freely and your hands just worked with you as one :P

so I really want to start drawing more often but sometime I feel like my mind is just too blah and not inspired and stressed from life...I really want to follow my true dream of becoming an artist of some kind either in digital art or traditional,, just dont know yet but if the time is right I would like to go back to art school again :)

just a round up of doodles XP

LOVE for art

eki draw copy


since March of 2009 with the love of kawaii and crafting ekiLove was born♥ now over 400+ orders served and is fully registered business thanks to all your support :D
It all just started with things I thought was kawaii and wanted to share my kawaii to others since I was consistently asked where I got my hair piece or other items I created so I decided to open a mini shop to share some of my creations. Just started with small hair pieces and bows and then grew into sewing items with now features jewels. :D

I am very proud of my creations and the design that I put my heart into all that I create, its alot of hard work too since I create, take photos of all the items, maintain web store, taking orders and making sure everything gets shipped accordingly since I am the only one running ekilove but its all worth it when I know that the item I have created is loved and have put a smile on someones face♥ thats what keeps me creating and sharing my love for kawaii and Hime style items!

My creations/designs have been imitated/copied by many other craftier and claimed as their own creation/designs which every time it is disappointing to me since if you create something you should really put your heart into it and not take other persons hard work since all of my creations have alittle of me in them, everyone should put their heart/soul into what they make with their own 2 hands and be proud of what they have just created.... be original and respectful of ones works please.


to all my ekiLovers thank you for all the undying support and love, it means so MUCH! ^0^
I will continue to create items that you will love and will continue improving my skills and craft!

here is alittle timeline of ekilove ;)

LOVE for kawaii, crafting and designing

well that is it for the recap of 1 year of blogging, it has a been really a pleasure to be here and I want to thank you again for your support, I wish I had more time to personally say thank you to everyone. Another thing I would like to address, Im so sorry if I never get back to all your questions, it have been really hard trying to answer questions when its everywhere from emails,comment box to cbox,, I dont want to open formspring since I am already having hard time finding time to answer all my emails but if its going to make it easy for everyone if it in one place please let me know. Please know that I am not trying to neglect anyone and questions, life just gets too overwhelming sometimes.

I hope to keep posting more interesting post to come Im not sure if it will be but I will try :)
sorry for the LONG post but thank you for reading them hope you got to know me more if you are new readers♥

take care everyone! Im still recovering from being sick but Im glad I finally made this post~ hope everyone is have a happy blogging time also♥

XOXO

  2. Hi Eki - Congrats on your 1-year blog anniversary!

    I just wanted to say that I really do love this post - you were one of the very first blogs that I have found truly inspirational. You are so one of a kind, but very much like me in your interests :) I could tell from the beginning that you are genuine in everything that you say or do - your blog has a feeling of innocence, wonder, fun, and of course, beauty, which I think resonates with many of your readers, myself included!!!

    You have so many talents and so much creativity, and instead of drawing readers into a vortex of negativity, whining, and complaining, you draw them in with POSITIVITY which is such a refreshing thing for a blog!

    I will continue to support your blog, your craft (lol, so hard to get ahold of your special jewelry, all sold out already!), and YOU as a friend in this crazy blogworld!

    ♥ Irene

  4. This post made me cry. Seriously. You've been through so many hardships in your life and still you can be such a positive person! You get so much love and you share it as well. You have hobbies that you enjoy. Now I'm sure that I can fight my depression whenever it comes back and probably be the winner at the end.

    I just got a part-time job and a DSLR camera will probably be the thing I'm going to buy with my first paycheck :3 I'm going to get a Pentax one.

  5. You are creative and inspiring AND beautiful!
    I am glad even though you have your own personal hardships (like we ALL do!) you still persevere. :)

    I love the photographs with the bright green/yellow/aqua blue make-up combo and the cupcake photograph. They look so delish!

    When Jen mentions you she has nothing but kind words for you! And says you are the sweetest person and I definitely get that from your blog. So that's why you have so many supporters for you and your blog. I think they realize you are genuinely kind and can relate to you since you do share things about your life. :)

  6. Omg the pictures are so cool I enjoy looking at them you are SO pretty your makeup is FANTASTIC everything is so cute...Happy Anniversary <3

  7. えきちゃんの絵は素敵!And nice pictures from a fellow photographer. :) I love your jewelry pics, I've always wanted to take pretty pics like that with some of the jewelry I've collected, but I need a macro lens. I am also a huge fan of Nikon. My first film camera that I was introduced to was my dad's old Nikon F. And when I decided to go to photo school in Santa Barbara I decided on a Nikon D700. Your modeling pics are also super cute! Do you take those all yourself? I'm glad to have found you through blogger, and I am not as active as I would like to be, but I enjoy reading the things you post. :) Keep up the great work and can't wait to read more! 一周年記念日おめでとう!ヽ(´▽`)/

  8. Nice, huge post!

    You're very talented and creative Eki! I love the letters bulletin board idea! All the cards look nice too :]

    Your drawings are also amazing. I used to draw but I sort of stopped once I graduated high school >_< Now.. I usually draw one picture every 6 months or so :/ My last drawing, good one not a doodle lol, was Rydia from FFIV...I love how it turned out. But I drew that like...a year ago? LOL Wow now I think I should draw againnnn

    I love the last picture of you, in the pig tails, it's very kawaii =]

  15. eki! Thank you so much for this wonderful blog post! :D I'm so glad you've decided to turn to blogger to making friends because I personally feel that it's so wonderful to have met you. <3

    I really admire how you have put your childhood behind you but at the same time, not ignore the difficulties you've been through because that's a part of who you are. The fact that you don't deny you had a bad childhood and face it straight on now is definitely not something everyone can do--and I admire your courage. :3 Because honestly, if you did not tell me, I wouldn't have guessed your childhood was not the most ideal considering your positive outlook in love.

    Don't worry, we're here to give you the love you've been missing in your childhood and make it up 10 folds!! :D I've read each and every single one of your blog posts after I've stumbled upon your blog somewhere in the middle and I just adore each and every one of them. I think it's really sweet that you share so many "personal" things with us, I really feel as if we're friends. :D (There are some bloggers who I've never even seen their faces so it feels a little distant...)

    I know you've been really busy, a little sickly, and probably troubled by the whole crystal scamming business...I hope that they'll get what they justly deserved and that you'll get what's rightfully yours returned with an apology. I'm behind you every step of the way! <3

    Stay healthy, take care, and please continue to be as sweet as always! It always cheers me up when I see your sweet blog posts. <3

  16. Congrats on your 1 year blog anniversary Eki.

    Your blog was one of the first blogs I ever followed, before I even knew how to follow via google and had a blogspot. Like you, I started blogging [again] to feel a void I had/have in my life [I used to blog a lot before on xanga/LJ but stopped for years]. I totally agree with you on how a plus of blogging is having it there to remind you of the hardships you had to face to get to where you are now. It does make you appreciate things more.

    I am very happy that you never stopped blogging and continue to share your life, passion and creativeness via your photography, art skills, ekiLove, your blog as a whole.

    One of the things I look forward to the most nowdays is reading other people's blog. Seeing all of their creativity and personality shine through their blog like yours. Your blog inspires me. Seeing you do what you love the most, what you have passion for, makes me want to not give up on things I enjoy doing the most.

    I can't wait to see what else you'll blog about these years to come. I wish you the best in everything.

  17. Happy 1 year Eki! :) Your blog is amazing, beautiful, and always a good read! You're defnitely an inspiration to so many bloggers out there~ :) You've accomplished so much in one year, and you definitely deserve all the love from everyone; you're a very REAL girl, and I think that's a very admirable thing. That's why your blog is always so fun and enjoyable, because you never commercialize or try to be someone you're not! Keep up the greattt work! I know you'll have a lot more anniversaries to come~

    & Pleaseeee take care of yourself and get well soon! :)

    <3 Tiffany

    PS. BTW, That lace tote in one of your pictures for Ekilove creations, would you still be able to make any? I would loveee to get my hands on one T___T I've been looking for a laceyy/princessy tote or purse for a longgg time but never found one!

  18. eki,
    you are one AMAZING girl. i have been in love with all your pictures and style for a long time and this by far is my favourite post. you let the personal you shine through :) i know what you mean about feeling lonely, i went through very hard depressed times as well, for many many years.

    you have taken this one year and made something beautiful out of it! keep dreaming, keep loving your art, and keep crafting! your ekilove things are too adorable.

    if i ever scrap together enough money, i am going to squeal and order some <3

    you are so unique and inspiring :)

  21. Happy blogversary Eki!! Sorry to hear you've been sick, I hope you feel better!<3

    I agree, meeting such kind, loving people here (like YOU!) is one of the best things about blogger. Your blog was one of the first that I came upon when I was new to blogger and you were always such an inspiration to me from the beginning! Your cosplay contest was the first contest I ever joined and I was kind of scared to do it but I'm glad I did (:

    Your art and photography is also a HUGE source of inspiration to me... I did not draw for maybe 4 years but when I see your beautiful drawings, I am inspired to try getting back into it! Your photography is always so amazing too, I wish for a d90 as well X)

    I remember Ekilove from the very start! :D It's so nice to see how much it has grown and evolved and you are still talented as ever ♥ I adore all your pieces and will continue to expand my Ekilove collection hehe :3

    I also love how you take the time to connect with your readers and show them the real you. To me, it's hard to know whether a blogger is "real" or not and I feel like you're one of the most down to earth, nicest, and sincere girls I've met here! You def. deserve all the love you receive! :D I can relate with you sometimes too since I tend to get into that depressed funk each month and I don't like thinking about my childhood... but feeling the love and support of every one truly is a great pick me up =)

    Sorry for the super long comment, Eki, I guess I'm just trying to say THANK YOU for being such an inspiration to me from the start and for always being so nice =) I hope you have many more years of blogging to come! ♥

  22. eki happy anniversary! i love the pictures. your photography skills are so inspiring. i can't believe one year has passed and there's so much that has happened with your creations and your originality toward art. keep continuing. i love your works!

  26. Thank you for taking the time to do such an amazing post Eki~ Although I was not there to be a reader/follower of your blog from the beginning, I feel that I've gotten to know you just as much as if I were to have been there since the beginning =). Not to mention, I have gone back to read your earlier posts ;). This collage of your 1 year blogging/achievements with EkiLove is amazing and I really hope that you continue to grow with love and that EkiLove will as well =). Thank you for being an amazing friend and giving your love in return for me and others =]!!

  49. Hi eki!
    First, Happy 1 year!
    Though I hardly comment cos I'm quite a shy commenter, I have always been reading your posts!

    I know how it feels to have an unhappy childhood. But what matter most is that you are now happy, filled with so much love and kindness and doing wad you like.

    I hope I can be like you in the future too. Being happy and living the life I want.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh hun, I loved reading everything that you've wrote. ♥

    You are such an amazingly sweet and loving person and completely deserve all the LOVE you get from Blogger.

    I do have to sadly agree with you when you said that people are starting to commercialize their blogs and all that :(
    I love how you don't do that and you are always sharing about your personal life. Whether it's your drawings, photography, or even occasional pictures from outtings with Zach! :)

    And Woah 400+ EkiLove orders! XD WOAH!! I'm so happy for you that you've been so lucky and have such good fortune <3 Your creations are so beautiful. I still love wearing your hair clips ;) & it sucks that each time I wanna buy something from your jewelry, it's already sold out. I'm just not quick enough >.< Hopefully soon though I'll be able to own one of your beautiful jewelries.

    Eki, I just LOVED this post so much.

    HAPPY 1 YEAR BLOGGING~! ♥
