It's definitely difficult not to fall in love with Japan. This year, I headed over to Osaka again for a two-week work & play adventure. Last year, I was still finding and learning my way around the city, so my search for craft supplies was quite limited. This year, I checked out new places and discovered that there was so much I was missing. Since there's been this great Japan invasion this year, I thought I'd share with you fellow crafter a few of my favorite sport. Here's quick Arts and Crafts Supplies Guide: Where to buy in Osaka.
Back in the day, all I had for inspiration were dusty books and old magazines. I used to snip portions of old magazines and stick them on the little cork board in my bedroom.

Pinterest has tapped me to be a part of their community of content curators in the Philippines, and I'm eager to talk more about why they're so great.

Summer has hit Manila, and kids need something to do! I've recently been asked if The Friendship Bracelet Book was still available. I did some research, and found all the places you can download the craft books from. Yay! I'm finishing up a few more mini-zines, so just keep an eye out here on the site!
