TELL all TUESDAYS:: Yellowgoat Design

Hi's Tell All Tuesdays again...

We're introducing you to a very dear and talented Jeweller,artist,designer and friend blogger....Yellowgoat...who's first name is actually Petula(very pretty name)
Such a talent...I wish everyone was so much closer so that we could all meet up and chat over a cup of Tea!
Drum's Petula from Yellogoat Design::

Tell us a little about the Town you live in... & have you always lived there?
I grew up in Hong Kong and live here most of my life. It's a vibrant
city if you like to go out and have night life and plenty of shopping,
basically most of the major apartment complex has their own malls.
Fun fact, my apartment building has a 70th floor....weird for most,
but becoming normal for us who cramp into small spaces and call it
If you could move anywhere tomorrow, where would it be?
San Francisco. I lived there for some years, I have to say I miss it
all the time.

How structured is your day usually?
One thing I learned about working at your own time and at home is that
you really need a schedule. I wake up between 6 -7 am and check emails
for orders and other business related things. If I have many orders, I
spend the day with my little dinning area "studio". If not, I will
either catch up with blogs or do some creative works.
Usually I rest in the evening to watch a bit of news then it's
computer time again for blogging and twittering till I sleep.

Though, some days when I am just really sick or tire, I will take the
liberty to rest a bit, or just go out to browse the supply stores.
Weekend I rest on Sat, but Sunday usually involve some works. Either
fill orders for the weekend orders or computer work.

What did you do today?
I just woke up, check email, and replying to this email while having
my breakfast. ;D

Are you a cat or dog person?

I recently got myself a kitty. I think that says it all.
But I like dogs, it's just I don't have time or patience to train them
or take them or a walk, and my small apartment isn't really dog

Are you a breakfast, lunch or dinner girl?
Breakfast, definitely. Most days I can do without much of a dinner and
I love weekend brunch

If you had 6 friends over for Dinner what would you make for them?
A vegan feast, I have many recipes book and loads of stuff I want to
make...but most of my friends are they heard the word
vegan and just give me an "hm...." face.

How old were you when you knew you were on the right path in your Life?
Never! It's hard to figure out a path, let alone a "right" path. I am
those people who keep second guessing myself and just keep changing my
But I really like what I am doing now, even though it's not exactly
financially rewarding at the moment, but if I can keep doing this till
I retire, I am really blessed.

Who /what drove & inspired your love to create?
Anything or everything, from nature to human behaviors, or a
conversation...I don't have a very set mind of I only want to do just
a certain thing or style. I take my experience and turn them into
ideas and then when I have time, I give them a try. There many
failed ones. ;P

Tell us something not too many people know about you.
Hm...that I am really silly? I don't know. I think I share quite a bit
of myself through my blog and my work.

Shoe choice::flats or heels?
Right now, flats. Though I have many 4 inches heels...they are collecting dust.

What was the last book you read?
I am embarrassed to say it's "Complete Metalsmithing"...I don't read
it through and through, but I keep reading it when I have free time.
I am a practical book and non fiction kind of girl.

What advice would you give others just starting out?
Have passion, and trust your guts, other may tell you you can't, but
you have to believe you can.

Name 5 blogs you love visiting, and tell us why.
Creatures Comfort - Ez is just amazing in every way possible
A cup of Jo - Joanna is just super nice and cute
Melissa love - She's really enthusiastic and she giving me lots of encouragement
Fine little day - The simplicity of the posts is just luring.
Seth's Blog - When I have time, I do some catching up for his thoughts
on marketing and business, they are very intriguing.

The list goes on...I can't just pick 5 or 10...I read them all if time allows.

Thanks Petula for taking part in our Tell all Tuesdays...I'm sure all your Fabulous readers and fans will love reading this , please visit her blog and her Etsy site...
