I made origami giraffes.

Well, I guess they were playing each other in the flower field....

I bought this flower plant at the farmer's market yesterday.
They caught my attention and I was glad that I got it!
Flowers always cheer me up when I am down.

I went to the Kimono Fashion Show the other day . I was so inspired and at the same time it reminded me of some kimonos which I have in Japan. I always wanted to take a tea ceremony class so that I could have more opportunities to wear them.... maybe some day...

product tag









I have been working on a tag for my new product.
These are not jellyfish but flowers!
I also changed my logo. Just using my first name...
I thought this might be easier for people to remember.

What do you think?
