Happy Girls’ Day!


It’s March 3rd and it’s Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Festival) day! Mili and I made a couple sets of hina dolls this year so just wanted to share :) Even though I did put these together mostly, Mili participated with crayons and she had fun! All these scrabbles you see, it’s her work :)

It’s fairly easy to make, great crafts with kids.

DIY: Heart Paper Garland


HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Hope you are having a sweet day so far… :) The Internet is filled with love and hearts, I love it! Mili and I made these really easy heart paper garland yesterday at her music class (thanks to her teacher!) I just wanted to share. Great craft you can do with kids!

All you need is some stripes of papers and glue. You take the stripe, fold it in half and glue the end together to make a heart-shape. You can make it long or short, it’s so easy and cute!

Skillshare Classes…


My friend Mika from Rice and Miso Everyday just taught a skillshare class in west elm market and so I stopped by and said hi. I knew they had such classes but seeing all set up and looking at the future skillshare schedule makes me want to learn something new here!



What would you like to learn new this year?!

DIY: Felt Hat

Mili’s 1st birthday is fast approaching (can’t believe it!) and I started doing some party planning… She definitely needs a party hat, right? I am thinking of making one for her… and found this great DIY tutorial of making a felt party hat here, I couldn’t help but share! So cute I think I have to give it a try :) *picture is from Princess Lasertron.

Or… I can buy this lovely hat from Colette Bream, too…

Isn’t it so sweet?
