New Books from Japan!

While I was away in CA teaching, my dearest friend Dorice took me to a Japanese Book Store...now you all know how much I love love...ok...LOVE Japanese craft books. This was such a special treat for me. This store Kinokuniya Bookstore was jammed pack full of Japanese items, books, and magazines!! Yes- over whelming as I stood in front of thousands and thousands of craft books!! 

I have also found they have an online shop (link here) have patience...there is a button for English and it will take some searching but well worth it if you are into this kind of thing!! Also by this site offers these books at approximately a $10 savings!
