This is a little pouch of Japanese seaweeds and fish flakes for rice that my mom sent me. I love the packaging so much, I was thinking hmmm… how to use this beautiful packaging and turn into something special.
So it turned into a little book!
It’s an accordion book about “Tea delivery bear”
Here is the story!
This is the “tea delivery bear” he is carrying a box of tea.
He travel through the forest
On a ship across the ocean
To a little lady’s house
March 11th became a big day for Japanese people since the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan two years ago this day.
Yesterday me and my friends (we have a group call tsuru project ) gathered in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and had an origami tsuru installation and origami work shop as a memorial.
It was a bright and sunny day and it was so peaceful to just watch our colorful origami and ornaments swinging in the wind!
The circle ornaments are made by the kindergarten kids and teacher in Fukushima, Japan.
Thank you everybody who stopped by yesterday and made origami with us!
And big thank you for everyone around the world who helped and supported Japan when it was in the darkest days!
I was doing potato stamping for a class that I teach, and I totally got into it.
It’s super fun!!!
I made these two stamps during the class, we all discovered simple shape looks the best with potato stamping. Decided to print on my white T-shirts that I’ve never wore.
Done!!!!Cut off the sleeves so it looks nicer.
Done!!!! Now I want to do more, maybe make a curtain or a dress.
