Red String of Fate
Designed by m48teh
. *I currently have a large mounted print of "Red String of Fate" along with "Sunset with Blue Trees" on hand available for sale in the Greater Toronto Area. See details "here":http://muiling.com/shop/originals.htm* . !http://muiling.com/shop/mounted-prints.jpg! . _I feel my heart being pulled when we are not together,_ _Longing for the day we are with each other._ _The thread between us will never break;_ _Our destinies are tied by the red string of fate._ ~views: 10064 views as of Oct 21, 2012~ ~favs: 80+~ My "origami calendar":http://www.redbubble.com/people/m48teh/calendars/1704732-2-tiny-treasures-miniature-origami The red string of fate is based on a Chinese myth that the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of men and women destined to be soul mates. This myth has also been adapted into other East Asian cultures. I first became familiar with it by watching anime; though in those cases, one would attempt to match up couples by tying their fingers. This image, while on one hand based on that Chinese legend, is one that defines me. With the red thread forming the heart, I frame what is currently my greatest passion: miniature origami. I fold using tweezers, and sometimes with needles (I show a needle here, though for these hearts I only used tweezers as they are not that small). The hearts of paper and string, while representing my passion, also represent my soul, and how my fate is bound by the constraints of life. I'm in my own little world bound by a thread of fate; though my passion lies in a world of paper. While most women primarily use needles for sowing; I primarily use them for "tiny origami":http://www.redbubble.com/people/m48teh/art/1299556-1-origami-surgery :P I adjust the position of the objects with tweezers, and sometimes got magnetic reactions between the tweezers and the needle. They say opposites attract... but they are both metal :] Each heart was folded from a 15 x 15mm piece of paper. Taken with an Olympus FE-340 on super macro mode. *Great for Valentines day or as love letters, because you and your loved ones were destined by fate.* *Learn more about my origami "here":http://muiling.com/portfolio/origami.htm* . *For a better idea of "scale":https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=445454032145164&set=a.395001527190415.99650.297765400247362&type=3* !https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/251825_445454032145164_1093939612_n.jpg!:https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=445454032145164&set=a.395001527190415.99650.297765400247362&type=3 ~Featured on the homepage and in the following groups:~ ~"Macro Photography":http://www.redbubble.com/macro-photography~ ~"Inspired Art":http://www.redbubble.com/inspired-art~ ~"All About Hearts":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/all-about-hearts~ ~"Color Me a Rainbow":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/color-me-a-rainbow~ ~"Focus and Lighting":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/focus-and-lighting~ ~"Photographers of Redbubble":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/photographers-of-redbubble~ ~"The 500 to 5000 viewings group":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/500-viewings-group~ ~"The Scavenger Hunt":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/the-scavenger-hunt~ ~"HIGH QUALITY IMAGES":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/complex-simplicity~ ~"Holidays and Special Occasions":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/holidays-and-special-occasions~ ~"Absolute Clarity":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/absolute-clarity~ ~"Bits and Pieces":http://www.redbubble.com/bits-and-pieces~ ~"Cards: Best of your Best":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/best-of-the-best-cards~ ~"4 Winners Only":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/4-winners-only~ ~"Art in Math":http://www.redbubble.com/art-in-math~ ~"Artists Universe":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/artists-universe~ ~"ImageWriting":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/photowriting~ ~"The Group":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/chrome-mafia~ ~"COLLAGE with traditional mediums":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/traditonal-collaging~ ~"ALL ABOUT YOUR BEST WORK":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/all-about-your-best-work~ ~"Harmonious Hippies":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/peace-love-and-happiness-hippies~ ~"Untouched":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/untouched~ ~"The Compact Group":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/the-compact-group-1-per-day~ ~"Alphabet Soup":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/alphabet-soup~ ~"CROSSES, CRAFTS & COLLECTIBLES":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/crosses-crafts-and-collectibles~ ~First place in:~ ~"Our New Avatar Challenge":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/all-about-hearts/challenges/9632-our-new-avatar-challenge~ ~"Show Me Love":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/under-in/challenges/43945-show-me-love-20-voucher-valentine-challenge~ ~"February 14th":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/the-power-of-photography/challenges/43787-february-14th-no-cards-pls~ ~"$20 Feb voucher":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/cees-fun-artsy-friends-3-per-day/challenges/52652-tie-breaker-for-voucher-20-feb-voucher-only-for-the-3-winners~ ~"Valentine's Day":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/bubblers-weekly-challenge/challenges/63084-valentines-day~ ~Thank you very much.~ ~Many thanks also to the mystery buyer who bought a laminated print of this piece; it was my first print sale!

All dresses are unique

by Catriona S. on Apr 15, 2018

Designs are so brilliant. Everything you want is possible to find. I do find the A line dress has a very small neckline. The motif is on back and front so these I prefer.

So comfy...

by Kelisa on Apr 8, 2018

This dress is so comfy. I ended up using a belt to make it more "shapely", but it's also super cute when I just want to be completely comfortable as a free flowing dress. The fabric is nice too with a little bit of stretch. I also love that it's made in the USA. I received so many compliments on the print that that I chose for the march. Will definitely be buying more! Thank you, RedBubble and your amazing artists/designers! BTW, I normally wear a 6 and the Small was perfect.
