We took a day trip to N.Y. to browse our favorite japanese shops and the American Girl store. These little guys are from Minamoto Kitchoan, a japanese bakery. Our trip wouldn't be complete without a yummy bowl of udon noodle from Chiyoda.
My daughter’s 9th birthday was held at the local roller rink (70s theme, natch) and I refuse to go the party store route for the goodie bag & favors.
For the girls, I made ultra-suede bags, tri-feathered roach clips (hair accessories, of course) and a custom leather ID bracelet. Try kerning that type with a hammer and tap. Ugh, I left that to my husband. That crazy Tuscan leathersmith type is pretty cool though, huh?
