Sorry I have not wrote a post for awhile. My hard-drive failed, so I have been out of commission. It was a new hard-drive too, so it's failure came as kind of a surprise. Luckily I did not lose a lot of information, and I have finally got a temporary setup going until my new replacement arrives.
A lot has happened here in the last 12 days. My birthday was on the 12th, and my daughter took me out to Chuck e Cheese to celebrate! Wasn't that nice of her?
I also got a pretty cool present. My long time friend from Korea came to visit me. He also was kind enough to bring me 5 Japanese craft books too! One of them is pretty cool. It is a book of up-cycling and reusing clothing to make kids clothes. I will try to get some pictures of it on here later.
I went to Mitsuwa in Arlington Heights too and got a couple more Japanese craft books yesterday. I tried to get something a little different this time, instead of the usual sewing patterns. I chose a paper cutting book and another book that shows how to make fabric containers. (It is in French and Japanese...yeah, two languages I don't understand!) I can't wait to make something from them!
These technical difficulties are cutting into my precious craft time. I can't wait until I get it all resolved!
It has been a week of a lot of deep breaths!
I will do my best to catch up on some posts over the weekend! =)
