Christmas comes earlier at hanarupark..!!! well, coz we learned from last year experience where we launch our “Shannon” exactly one week before December 25th and crazy orders on the web and tons of email asked me about when we will restock the Christmas bracelet and then we decided to make Pre Order Shannon Bracelet but some of them received the bracelet after Christmas coz i was still in Seoul that time..

Hanarupark 84 meet Shannon, our Christmas bracelet ^^

my trip to Seoul inspired our latest design a lot.. starting from my cafe hopping experience to your everyday fashion, a stylish start to winter with a red cup in your hand which means holiday is around the corner ^.^ it’s been one hectic week with tons of work (tons of fun..!!!) and new designs is on the list (sooooo exciteeeed..!) thanks Jesus for Your Word helps me to stay grounded in Your promises.. The Lord has been so merciful to show me that life apart from Him is nothing and what i really want is to bring Him Glory through my work ^^

and the joy that it bring •ᴥ•

holiday season is drawing near and today we got tons of new designs with a new story like a day in a park to all park bench lovers out there, dango date, apple and strawberry picking, chit chat over coffee even spend one quiet time reading your bible.. it’s all about holiday and the joy that it bring •ᴥ•

designing for me is a divine process.. there are many ideas that i want to express in one object with the help of Jesus, The Creator ^^ the creative process in hanarupark ain’t that complicated but more immediate.. when i am working on hanarupark design it has to come immediately and spontaneously with whatever is available at the moment.. if i think three times, i stop… but first thing first, PRAY 🙏 

EVERYTHING CREATED BEGAN AS AN IDEA, SO PURSUE DIVINE IDEAS..!!! ONE THING FOR SURE TO BE CREATIVE YOU GOTTA BE CLOSER TO THE CREATOR ^.^

Hanarupark 86 My Cup Overflows up on the web ^.^

i learned to get the “before” factor in my life.. Israel praised before Jericho walls fell.. Jesus gave thanks before bread and fish multiplied 🙏 and each person is given something to do that shows who God is.. whether you work at home or in the marketplace, your work matters to God.. whether you log on or lace up for the day, you imitate God.. your career consumes half of your lifetime.. shouldn’t it broadcast God? God honors work, so honor God in your work.. when you do the most what you do the best, you put a smile on God’s face.. what could be better than that?

last but not least, you can do something no one else can do in a fashion no one else can do it.. exploring and extracting your uniqueness excites you, honors God and expand His kingdom..

traffic jam inspire our new designs a lot ^^

after all those hectic week back in seoul, miracle after miracle and the fastest sale on dominique and hazel, finally today we show you behind the scene of what inspire this special design.. we drive a lot, traffic jam and hot weather inspired our designs.. how creative is Our Creator..!!! what was just a hobby has turned into a fun playground with hanarupark..

i want a fun color for this edition and it’s going to come by way of pastel and cute charms as always.. pastels may have been a huge hit for 2013 but they are sticking around a little longer here in our playground.. pastels are going to be everywhere..

and today’s design start with Lightning McQueen, #95, is a hotshot rookie race car who loves going faster than fast. When he’s not racing, he spends his time in Radiator Springs with his best pal, Mater. When in Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen meets quirky characters who help him discover that there’s more to life than trophies and fame. and that first quirky friend is Mater, the rustiest, trustiest tow truck in Radiator Springs. He loves tractor tippin’, helping out stranded cars, and most of all, hanging out with his best friend, Lightning McQueen. Mater is great at driving backwards, because he doesn’t need to know where he’s going as long as he knows where he’s been. Star race car Lightning McQueen and tow truck Mater take their friendship on the road from Radiator Springs to exciting new places.

Hanarupark 93 go red with our Agatha Lightning McQueen

Sally is a beautiful baby blue Porsche who fell in love with small town life in Radiator Springs. She runs the Cozy Cone, is the town attorney, and is dedicated to preserving her favorite place to live. She loves cruisin’ in the slow lane with Lightning McQueen.

Finn McMissile is a British spy car who mistakes Mater for an American spy and recruits him in the mission to solve the conspiracy to sabotage the World Grand Prix

Luigi is a 1959 Fiat 500 who runs the local tire shop, Luigi’s Casa Della Tires, “Home of the Leaning Tower of Tires.” He loves changing tires for racecars like Lightning McQueen, but nothing makes him happier than when a real Ferrari comes through his door.

Guido is a little Italian forklift and Luigi’s assistant and best buddy–you’ll hardly ever see the two pals apart. Like Luigi, Guido is an avid Ferrari racing fan who dreams of performing a real pit stop on a real Ferrari.

Fillmore is a 1960 VW Bus, and naturally, also Radiator Springs’ resident Hippie and clean fuel aficionado. He brews his own organic fuel in his tie-dyed, geometric dome, and his unkempt yard tends to bug his veteran army jeep neighbor, Sarge.

Holley is a beautiful young British desk agent turned spy in training, well educated and sharp, she knows every trick in the book. She is armed with all of the latest state-of-the-art spy equipment imaginable, from hidden cameras and concealed weapons to a telescoping utility arm and a holographic pop-up display. Holley is a highly motivated agent, but is fresh out of the academy, so her experience is based on lessons learned in school rather than real-life situations.

Holley said she is Mater’s girlfriend and says to Mater that he still owes her a first date.

Flo is a sassy, no-nonsense 1950’s show car who enjoys traveling cross-country. She now runs the local diner, Flo’s V-8 Cafe, and the only gas station for miles around.

Ramone is a 1951 Impala low-rider who loves riding “low and slow.” He runs Ramone’s House of Body Art, the local custom body and paint shop. A true artist, but without many customers to paint, Ramone changes his own paint job every day.

Sarge, a 1942 WW2 Willy’s Army Jeep is the most patriotic resident of Radiator Springs. He runs the local army surplus store, Sarge’s Surplus Hut, and always starts the day with a rendition of Reveille.

last but not least, Sheriff is a minor antagonist at first and protagonist in Cars and Cars 2

i bet people can tell that you’re wearing our Ashley, Audrey and Agatha just in one glance.. it is a deeply touching experience to see my customer pic on instagram when they wear Hanaru Park design ^^ we love our job because it’s a combination of working with cuteness overload material and design in one setting.. it is amazing that you get paid for something that you love ^______^

that’s some of our character from today’s design.. start collecting and happy shopping!!! 🚗 🚙

which one is your fave?

JUST BECAUSE ෆ

just because of our lack post on instagram doesn’t mean we’re gone with the wind..

just because we post too much coffee and cute cake doesn’t mean we have unhealthy lifestyle..

just because it’s freeeeezing cold in Seoul doesn’t mean we’re running out of idea..

just because you love your work soooo much doesn’t mean you give all your energy on it and forget about Who make you succeed and why He make you succeed..

just because God says no, doesn’t mean you have the right to be grumpy all day..

just because we love you, we’ve been preparing from head to toe designs and can’t wait to launch em on the web..

just because we adore spring, we will surprise you all with tons of new designs this spring ^____^

just because our heart yearns for something earth can’t supply is proof that Heaven must be our home ??

sweet series ෆ

my trip to Seoul inspired our latest “Sweet Series” a lot.. starting from my cafe hopping experience to your everyday fashion, a stylish start to autumn with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake..

just perfect..

our autumn 2014 is definitely about desserts you can wear ^^ from bracelet to bag charm, it’s all about coffee and desserts. the best thing is you can wear it everyday. no worries, you won’t gain weight coz of it :p this is what inspires our “Sweet Series”

follow along as we go behind the scene..

Hanarupark 98 Coffee Mashineun Goyangi (The Coffee Drinking Cat) in Samcheongdong

It started as i stroll along Samcheong-dong. It never fail to make my day especially after my meeting in Seoul.. Samcheong-dong is a trendy area of cafes, restaurants and boutiques, located in the area of Seoul known as Bukchon, to the east of Gyeongbokgung Palace. There are dozens of coffee shops, it is almost impossible to recommend only one.. and if there had to be one, my pick would be Coffee Mashineun Goyangi (The Coffee Drinking Cat)

Our “Sweet Series” was born because of Seoul café craze. It is difficult to find a building without a café in Seoul. The majority of all the cafés are part of a major brand chain stores but there are also many smaller unique and trendy establishments here.. visit Samcheongdong or Garosugil then you will find out how Seoulites seem to have an insatiable thirst for coffee, cakes and comfortable seatings ^.^

This series is all about my travel buddies, behind the scene of hanarupark  ^_____^

From our Hazel to dazzling Dominique, from Samcheongdong to Garosugil, from Summer Story to Autumn Song, thanks all for the love ෆ

Hanarupark 100 everybody fave, Dominique bracelet ^^

my success is about Him ෆ

this morning we launched our “Sweet Series” inspired by my Seoul trip.. From the cafe to your everyday fashion, a stylish start to autumn ෆ Put on the things you love for your daily consumption.. Like a cup of coffee or simply a slice of cake.. Our Autumn 2014 desserts you can wear ^^ Thanks so much for the awesome response from the web since this morning until this very second as i sit here in my room under my fluffy blanket ^.^

Hanarupark 101 meet everybody fave, Rilakkuma Dominique Bracelet ^^

As i am blogging away, i stumble upon this note that i got years ago and it makes me want to share with you all about success.. With success comes a problem. Just ask Nadab, Elah, and Omri. Or interview Ahab, Ahaziah, or Jehoram. Ask these men to describe the problem of success. You might be thinking, if I knew who they were :p These are men we should know. They were kings of Israel. They ascended to the throne, but something about the throne brought them down. Their legacies are stained with blood spilling and idol worship. They failed at success. They forgot both the source and purpose of their success.

You won’t be offered a throne, but you might be offered a corner office, a scholarship, an award, a new contract, a pay raise. You won’t be given a kingdom but you might be given a beautiful home or money or resources. You will, to one degree or another, succeed..

Hanarupark 102

And when you do, you might be tempted to forget who helped you do so.. Know the purpose of success.. Why did God help you succeed? So you can make Him known.

Why are you good at what you do? For your comfort? For your retirement? For your self-esteem? No. Why are you good at what you do? For God’s sake. Your success is not about what you do. It’s all about Him..

Hanarupark 103

This note makes me realise how busy and hectic my schedule before and after my Seoul trip and sometimes i forgot to pray or at least give Him thanks >.< Forgive me, Lord.. And this is my prayer today, “I want to hear the voice of God before i hear anyone else’s in the morning and His is the last voice i want to hear at night”

Everything in this life is finite, meaning it doesn’t last, but only one thing is truly infinite and will last forever.. Yes, everything in this life can and will let you down, but the beautiful thing about it is this, when everything lets you down in this world it leads you to the one thing that is truly beautiful…..

the unfailing love of Jesus Christ ♡

Interview with God (하느님과의 인터뷰)

I dreamed I had an interview with GOD
하느님을 인터뷰하는 꿈을 꿨습니다.

“so you would like to interview me?” GOD asked.
“If you have the time,” I said.
“네가 나를 인터뷰 하고 싶다고 했니?” 하느님이 물으셨습니다.
“시간이 있으시다면,” 내가 말했습니다.

GOD smiled.
하느님은 미소지었습니다.

“My time is eternity… what questions do you have in mind for me?”
“나의 시간은 영원이다… 무엇이 묻고 싶니?”

“What surprises you most about humankind?”
“사람들을 보면 뭐가 제일 신기하지요?”

GOD answered.
하느님이 대답했습니다.

“That they get bored with childhood, they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again.”
“사람들은 어린 시절을 지루해 하지. 그래서 빨리 자라길 바라고
그리고는 늙어서는 다시 그 시절로 되돌아가길 바라지.”

“That they lose their health to make money… and then lose their money to restore their health.”
“돈을 벌기 위해서 건강을 잃어 버리고
그리고는 건강을 되찾기 위해서 돈을 잃어 버리지.”

“That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present,
such that they live in neither the present nor the future.”
“미래를 염려하다가 현재를 잊어버려.
마치 사람들은 미래에도 현재에도 살지 않는 것 같이.”

“That they live as if they will never die, and die as though they had never lived.”
“죽지 않을 것처럼 살더니 살았던 적이 없었던 것처럼 죽지.”

GOD’s hand took mine and we were silent for a while.
하느님이 나의 손을 잡아 줬습니다. 그리고 우리는 잠시 침묵에 빠졌죠.

And then I asked,
그리고 난 물었습니다.

“As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
“아버지로서 자녀들이 어떤 것들을 배웠으면 하시나요?”

“To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is let themselves be loved.”
“다른 사람이 자기를 사랑하게 만들 수는 없다는 것을.
단지 자기가 사랑받게끔 놓아두는 것 뿐이라는 것을.”

“To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.”
“다른 이들과 비교하는 것이 좋지 않다는 것을”

“To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.”
“용서함으로 용서를 배우기를”

“To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love.
and it can take many years to heal them.”
“사랑하는 사람에게 커다란 상처를 주눈 데는 단지 몇 초의 시간 밖에 걸리지 않지만
그 상처가 아물기에는 몇 년의 시간이 걸린다는 것을.”

“To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.”
“부자는 가장 많이 가진 사람이 아니라 가장 적게 필요한 사람이라는 것을.”

“To learn that there are people who love them dearly,
but simply do not yet know how to express or show their feelings.”
“너희에게 사랑을 표현 못하거나 말하지 못하는 사람 중에서도
너희를 깊이 사랑하는 사람이 있다는 것을.”

“To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently.”
“두 사람이 같은 것을 보고서도 다르게 느낄 수 있다는 것을.”

“To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”
“다른 사람을 용서하는 것만이 아니라 자기를 용서해야 된다는 것을.”

“thank you for your time,” I said humbly.
“시간을 내주셔서 감사합니다.” 나는 겸손히 말했습니다.

“Is there anything else you’d like your children to know?”
“당신의 자녀들이 알았으면 하는 다른 것들은요?”

GOD smiled and said…
하느님이 미소지으며 말했습니다…

“Just know that I am here.”
“내가 너희와 함께 여기에 있다는 것.”

“Always.”
“언제나.”

“Always.”
“언제나.”
