Next week I’ll be in New York and this blog will be quiet. One of the many things I hope to be doing is shopping at a few crafts shops the likes of which just can’t be found around my little hometown in West Virginia.
On a previous trip I bought these Japanese craft books at Kinokuniya Book Store, located across from Bryant Park. Although not a traditional craft store, they do carry a nice selection of books and some good quality Japanese craft supplies. And no, I can’t read Japanese. Thankfully craft books offer lots of pictures. (Although I was surprised to realize after I got home that the cat book is not just about making cute cat themed items. You’re supposed to make felt from your pet’s shed fur to create a very true-to-life likeness. Kind of creeped me out, really.)
I also stumbled across the English version of one of the books and bought it for my sister in law. (Now I can call her for a translation if I get stuck making a Cute Dog!)
Hopefully I’ll have some fun crafty stuff to tell you about when I get back – have a great week!
