Happy Mother’s Day to our moms and all the amazing hardworking moms out there!!! Hope you all are having a great weekend filled with love and laughter.
Mili made me the best present :) I am so happy and so proud to be her mama! Thank you, Mili!
Also, Randy got me some pretty flowers and made me a french toast this morning. What a lucky mom I am! Thank you!
This little girl struggled with high fever this week, ended with rosaola rash, still has some rash on her body, but I am so grateful she is better now!
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.
Happy Girls’ Day!! xo Hijiri
I have been meaning to post about the Halloween this year — well, we had like 3 things to go to, but everything was cancelled due to the hurricane Sandy! So we just stayed home and played a little dress up :) (We all went for a walk in a costume, but outside was so dark due to the blackouts and no one was in costume! Well, very few kids… it was the least fun Halloween night I’ve ever had since I came to the US…)
Last year, Mili was only a few weeks old, I tried to take the same pictures and compared them with the pumpkin hat on… she grew so much!
And Mili and Maia as witch :) *I was going to be one, too… but oh well.
Hope we can lots of fun stuff next year!
This weekend was the Renegade Craft Fair weekend! This year, it was held at the East River State Park, aka the Williamsburg Waterfront. (That’s why we were waiting for the ferry!) The view was awesome, so were all the booths! It’s really great to see all the handmade artists and their amazing work being available right in front of you. I couldn’t take pictures of all the work I liked, but here are some to share…
Picture above is from Sel & Vinaigre booth. They had a lot of cool posters/prints, caught my eye.
Picture below is from Miniature Rhino. Their stuff always makes me smile :)
These two photos below are from Homako. I’ve purchased her cute necklace before and so seeing all of her great work in person made me really happy. They are all so cute and very unique.
Loved her new kid friendly line!
This amazing paper-cut work is from Lekker Haas Paper. It caught my eye immediately!
Liked these scrabble letter coasters :) From Yardsale Press.
OK, that’s all I have, but I liked many many more stuff and of course enjoyed shopping! I guess they’ll have a holiday fair in Brooklyn this year (finally!) — can’t wait!
