Home Office

 

If I still worked at Forever21 today, this is probably me this afternoon.

Yep, Bunny Fu Fu is down

While owning your own business is WAY more tiring than working at an office, but there is never a dull moment. I cannot express how awesome it is to work in my pajamas!

it’s got pockets, are you into that? ūüėČ

 

 

After few weeks of running around town in the hot weather it was nice to get a slow day today. So with a cup of iced tea, and my pressed flowers I started sketching for our next season.

 

Fall Sketch

I love collecting pressed flowers, these are Pink Dombeya I collected from San Diego.¬†Not sure how it’ll translate onto t-shirts yet, maybe some kind of discharge? I don’t know yet, but today has been a productive day at the office. ūüėČ

 

Instagram

I’ve been resisting the idea of Instagram since hipsters became mainstream. Does that make me the ultimate hipster? I guess the only way out is to actually get an Instagram. So here we are, our¬†own Instagram page…

Over there we’ll keep you updated on new products, daily inspirations, and ¬†fun stuffs we do. You know, all the stuff all the hipsters are doing, like riding our bikes to local organic market then eat some weird gluten free dessert.

Late Night Flower Arrangement


Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

My friend Allen and I are both suckers for flowers. He grows his own flowers on the balcony while I’m far too lazy for that. He took some fancy flower arrangements home from his company event and shared some with me (yay friendship is magic).¬†Problem was I don’t have a vase big enough for all of them. But¬†since my roommate wanted some too, I separated the flowers out and made new arrangements.

I love white roses normally, but these look wilted. They are at the right “wilt-ness” for dry flowers though, so¬†they are happily hanging in the bathroom in a lovely bundle.¬†I played with the different texture of two different hydrangeas. I cut the green hydrangea stems shorter so they act as green leaves complementing rest of the white flowers.¬†I thought it might be too boring with only hydrangeas for my roommate, I picked out few nicer roses and tucked them in.

My favorite part is of course the orchid, it off sets the entire set up.

How to get rid of the cursor ring for wacom tablet

Oh my freaking god, I just spent the past 2 hours of my life searching through the internet to find a way to get rid of the stupid cursor ring! I remember I’ve done it about 4 years ago when I first got my laptop, not somehow it had forgotten all my settings, and I’ve forgotten how to disable this thing. So here is a note to my self, and for you hopefully, on how to get rid of the circle around cursor.

From what I gathered, it is not a Wacom setting. It’s something to do with Windows’s tablet PC setting.
Try these steps, one or combinations of them will bound to get rid of this annoying thing.

1. Easiest.
In Control Panel¬†>¬†Pen & Touch¬†> select¬†“Press and Hold” > click Settings…> UNCHECK “Enable press and hold for right clicking” > OK
In the same window, go to tab Flicks > UNCHECK Use flicks and Display flicks(at bottom)> OK
This works for most people, but these kind of thing never worked for me on the first try. So if you are like me, high-five on being unlucky, and continue reading.

2.Pretty much worked okay…. THE FIRST TIME
Start > Search > Services A window should come up with a bunch of services on the right side and description in the middle (Extended view, tab options¬†at the bottom) Look for Tablet PC Input Service. In the description panel it should¬†say Restart, and Stop. Then¬†right click on Tablet PC input Service > Properties > Start up type: DISABLED. If you don’t do this, the ring will come back if you restart your PC.
While you are over here in the service window, take a look at Wacom Professional Service. Remember it! Sometimes, for whatever reason my tablet will stop working randomly. It’ll say Tablet Drive Not Found, it doesn’t sense pen pressure in Photoshop. If you ever run into that and don’t want to restart your computer you can always just stop and restart¬†this service. Yay~~ no reboot!

I think this is what worked for me 4 years ago, but this time ….. not¬†so lucky. =[ =[ =[ Sad face all around.

3. Registry Fix (For Windows 7, if you have Windows 7 Professional, read 4th one below)
There is always some risk with messing with stuff in registry, butttttt I was pretty annoyed by the circles, and apparently this is a sure way of doing it for Windows 7 Home Premium. You don’t want to change the wrong thing; your life and death rests on 1s and 0s. (Just kidding, it’s super easy.)
Start a note pad, copy the follow onto it

—————————————————-

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\TabletPC]
“TurnOffPenFeedback”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\TabletPC]
“TurnOffPenFeedback”=dword:00000001

—————————————————–

Save as > ihatecircles.reg ¬†(<— important .REG)
Double click on the file you just made, Run it, there will be a warning box, click OK. Then another one after it has worked. So you have 3 pops ups in total to go through. Run+warning+confirmation.
Finally you just need to log off then back on….. Life becomes good, and beautiful!

4.¬†Group Policy…
This only works for Windows 7 Professional and up. Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Starter doesn’t have this feature. So go >>here<< to get it enabled. Or search for “How to enable group policy for windows 7” You do have to install something extra though… very annoying. Don’t want to install anything? Go with #3
Start > search for ” gpedit.msc “
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Tablet PC > Cursors
TURN OFF pen feedback setting.
This should fix everything!
