Spring is coming!
I'm dreaming of spring. The plum blossoms are starting to come out and I'm so happy, even going to my first はなみ (flower viewing party) on Saturday, complete with picnic in the plum forest, and umeshu (plum wine) :D Anyway, Japan has the most beautiful packaging, it's so inspiring. I haven't done much design lately, but all the pretty stuff here is making me want to do some personal art... Oh, and the fabric. There's this craft shop a few towns up that is just ridiculous. I just want to go there every weekend. Luckily it's a bike, train ride and walk to ge there unless I coerse someone into driving me there via the coffee shop, either way it's decent trip so I guess it's saving me from myself.
