to brighten up my day!
last week i ordered some small items at kumis shop "atelier jade" in japan. she had this lovely cram cream tape that i just needed to have, and i found some more nice little things that i ordered right away. as i knew she was very busy with a fair she was invited to sell her selfmade things i thought it might take a while before my order arrived - but to my astonishment it already arrived yesterday in the evening!
there are some goldfish stickers saying "happy hot summer" (btw: my happy-hot-summer goldfish is available at etsy), some origami paper to fold cute little dresses, some putidepome-ribbon to embellish my nephew´s next pants, the cram cream tape and two pieces of lovely, summer-styled fabric ^^
thank you for your superfast shipping, kumi!
another cheer-up arrived in form of a new book:
some very nice patterns for small bags are included. and i love to look at those advertisements, though all the japanese shops don´t provide an english site, so you don´t even have the *chance* to order something. damn! very cute fabrics and some hot-hot-hot notions for bagmaking!
to spy inside the mag, click here.
and - last but not least - the whiplash bag competition has ended. be sure to go there and browse the bags - there are some real inspiring and pretty ones to see!
after browsing them you may want to leave your "vote" for your favoured bag(s) in this whipup blog entry. i´m sure you´ll find more faves than you might think! ^^
