I'm back! I went on a shopping spree at the Japanese bookstore in New York City (twice). I was so enamored and obsessed with the books and other cool things there that I went a little crazy. I shipped the first batch home them went back a second time and bought more to bring home. I will post photos of my many treasured purchases as soon as I unpack or recieve them. There are decorating books, craft books, including zakka, amigurumi, button crafts, fabric flower , and more. It only costs me a few extra Godzilla toys for my 8 year old son to be patient while I obsessively pull out books that I can't read. He enjoyed the chocolate Pocky snacks, too. I'll be back with photos....
I am a busy mom of two very active boys. A part time substitute teacher. An active volunteer. Chauffeur, short order cook, referee (the mom things!)
I craft for the fun of it, even though I constantly wish I could put forth the time and effort to make it a business, but then wonder if I would still enjoy it.
I make jewelry, often with repurposed vintage pieces, mosaics, collage, sew a bit. I would love be able to paint. And make clothes.
I love Japanese crafts and pop culture, and the designer vinyl toys that have stemmed from this. I may be too old, but I love Hello Kitty and friends!
