Happy Lunar New Year 2017 of the Chicken

The Lunar New Year of the Chicken is fast approaching on January 28, 2017!  The chicken is the tenth animal of the twelve Chinese horoscope signs. At Mint Purple Studio, our golden chickens Gumgaijai (金鷄仔) and Gumgailui (金鷄女) are running around creating all sorts of fun mischief.  Why are all the honey jars in the Studio empty?  Stick around for later posts and the chickens will tell you their character story soon.  For now, Gumgaijai and Gumgailui want to spread some sweetness with wallpapers, wall hangings and a printable DIY red envelope template (great for kids) to welcome the coming of Lunar New Year 2017!  Each design contains lucky Chinese greetings which are translated underneath the image.  Please do kindly keep our watermark intact to uphold copyright and trademark regulations should you use or share Mint Purple Studio’s images or files.  Thank you!

金鷄迎春 literally means the golden chicken welcomes spring and has a meaning similar to “out with the old and in with the new”

2017 Thank You Giveaway


Happy New Year!!!  

Mint Purple Studio is in it’s 7th year of designing, 4th year of family photography and somewhere along the way we managed to gather friends from all over the world.  To thank you and give back to our friends, I would like to ring in 2017 with a Thank You Giveaway – a one year Click Magazine subscription to one lucky winner.

I blogged about Click Magazine in my holiday swag post and absolutely LOVE it.  Friends often ask where my creative inspiration comes from, how my images are so crisp, what camera I use and why.  Well, many of those answers come from formal classroom instruction but often also come from reading Click!

The magazine writes about all things photography related, is super inspirational and the articles are written by some of the best female photographers in the photography industry.  The best part is you do not have to be a professional photographer to absorb the magazine material.  I started out reading Click because I just wanted to take better photographs of my babies many years ago!  If you love gorgeous photography that is authentic and truly captures the here and now, you want to be reading Click!  (Just a note, I am not being sponsored by Click for this giveaway.  I genuinely adore Click that much and know any photography lover will too!)
