My Creative Space – Origami Earrings

My Creative Space – Origami Earrings

It has been a busy month for me, some of you might have already known that I’m preparing my move to Japan for a year…

Without my sewing machine (well it’s packed away!) in my creative space, and still lacking the right hook sizes for my crochet projects, I turned my attention to Origami Jewelry.

100 Felt Straps – Japanese Craft Book

There was no way I could resist buying this needle felting book after discovering it in Kinokuniya’s craft section! Vast number of cute projects including fruits, vegetables, tofu, Japanese snacks… etc

Only pictures can describe the extent of “cuteness”…
“Awwwww!” is the reaction I’m expecting! ^0^

Today I wanna show you this second hand Japanese craft book that I got recently from Japan Yahoo! Auction through a friend living in Japan.

I never had the chance to look at the content of the book before I made the purchase because this book is actually out of print at the moment, but the title really caught my attention so I decided to buy it!

Almost every weekend, I would pop into Kinokuniya (Sydney) and browse the books in the Japanese Crafts section, and almost everytime I would leave empty-handed. And the one and only reason is – they are too expensive!!!!><

But last weekend, I bought two!!!! Why? Because I didn’t get it from Kinokuniya, I found out about Hondarake (Full of Books).

My copy of Lena Corwin’s Printing by Hand finally arrived!! I was so excited*v* I ordered it a while ago from Book Depository, but they had to back order so it took a while.

It finally showed up on my doorstep, just in time for the weekend. I was going to do more stamp carving, but decided to read the book first!!
