rainy season is ending and summer is here in japan.
its hot and humid and pure hell.
last few days i was making summer dresses for girls.
i had a nice linen fabric for a while and wanted to make something with it.
i couldnt figure out how to sew lining inside the dress, so i googled.
found great tutorial.
it was well described and beginner like i am could do it. yay!
2 dresses will be available on my etsy soon.
i will measure and figure it out the size but i think they are for girl around 10 years old.
i mentioned it on my facebook, but an article about my home is up online ( japanese), take a look! :)

when i went to the little lion lily, i saw a cute small tepee.
there are one with printed fabrics, but i bought the white one.
over the weekend, between printing blankets and towels, i printed my own design onto it.
i love how it turned out. :)
my non working fireplace has a good space for my new tepee.
i think my cat who is finally coming from chicago to japan in june will enjoy nap inside the tepee!

happy new year!
hope everyone had great holidays and starting new year with joy and happiness!
my christmas and new year was about family gathering.
even though im back in japan and my family lives an hour away from me, i dont get to see them often. so my holidays were to spend little time with them, and it was good time.
i started to grow succulent plants as my new year new hobby.
they look so pretty and amazing!
and super easy to care that i can handle. :D

i also put together five different kind of succulent plants in little bowl.
