Who are Sparkles & Joy?
Hi there! Im AJ, the designer, illustrator, maker, packer, photographer and everything else in between at Sparkles & Joy.
I am an interior design student, a dog mom and I do graphic design / illustrations as a side hobby. Nothing excites me more than exploring, learning and crafting new things.
I live in Hong Kong, but I am actually from one of the most beautiful tropical countries - The Philippines. My family and I moved to Hong Kong when I was 10 years old. I find living in Hong Kong quite challenging but day by day, I always try to find things to appreciate about the city. Its tradition and culture is so unique and it never fails to fascinate me.
Ever since I was young, crafting and designing has always been my thing, it's one of the things that comforts me when I feel like the world is against me. I guess that's why I started Sparkles & Joy, creating gives me joy and brings sparkle to my life.
