A "Little" Update

It wasn't my intention, but looks like I've done nothing but Etsy tutorials for the past 3 month! My apologies for those of you who aren't interested in opening a new shop. I'm not exactly the fastest writer in the world, and writing in Japanese doesn't come easy for me anymore, so I usually work on one post for about 2, 3 days. Then, I have no energy to write until it's time to start a new one.

I do want to give you some updates, though, since tomorrow is the last day of school for my son, and I don't know how much writing I'll be able to squeeze in for the next 2 months!

I posted one new bracelet shown above and have been working on another custom order. I know, that's not a lot to show for 3 months, and it's being reflected in my sales. Ouch!! But I have a good reason...

...I've had absolutely no creative energy because I've been using all my energy on creating a little human. :) I'm about 18 weeks along, and just beginning to feel some movement. He/She is quite rambunctious, actually. My midwife listened to the baby's heartbeat, and immediately said, "Sounds like a boy!" According to her, boys' heartbeats are usually slower than girls'. We shall see in about 2 weeks.

So, anyway, if you don't see me around too much, don't worry. I'm probably just out enjoying my last few months of "alone time" with my son before he'll have to share Mommy with a new sibling.


  1. I, for one, have thoroughly enjoyed your Etsy tutorials and have shared them with my artsy Japanese friends. How wonderful to hear your family is growing and thriving. Take care, and don't over-exert yourself!

  2. Thank you Debbie! We're very excited, including my son, which is quite a relief. He's even told me, "Maybe it's a little brother AND a little sister!" I don't think I'm ready for that! :)
