Halloween and Fall papers are arriving each day.
Cards, stamps and chipboard embellishments.
Dia De Los Muertos collection papers from Reminisce.
Just a couple of our Halloween stickers.
Snow and Cocoa from Crate Paper is here! The winter collection is full of snowflakes, cheerful snowmen, and cute trees in a pretty palette of pinks, blues, and yellows.
I watched "Sing Street" on the way to Tokyo - it's Irish and I hadn't heard of it.
Now I know how big a deal it is - Sundance loved it. Be sure to watch it!
These post are from the Paper Tales Instagram.
So much tape!!! I can't believe our presidential election is an "item" even in Tokyo!!! Loved the Bichon pillow of course. Daphne loving the massive collection of socks at Shibuya 109.
Ueno Park: Bentendo Temple & swan boats in Shinobazu pond, all the Chiyogami paper in one small store and the current popular dress style!
While Daphne had a meeting I went grocery shopping! It was an adventure for me because this is not Tokyo and no one spoke English and I couldn't read anything. The Google Translates app is amazing! You don't even need data or wifi - using your camera it scans and translates - good thing or I might have eaten a oyster 😳 The fruit and veggies are huge! Lots and lots of noodles, fish and toys! (Super cute kawaii toys) I ended up with a funny mixture of things: yummy milk tea, baumkuchen, dried mangos and candy! I can't wait to grocery shop again 😊
I'm on my way home from an amazing week in Tokyo and Yokohama. We did fortunes at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, ate lots of soba, went to Yokohama Chinatown & loved seeing all the kimonos. I can't believe I'm leaving Daphne here! I know she's going to be fine...but it's a funny feeling to leave your child in a different country! Can't wait for my next visit ❤️
So...who knew that we would find a Verve Coffee in Shinjuku?!?
My very favorite coffee when I visit Daphne in Santa Cruz! The woman working from SC was so nice to let me take a paper menu in Japanese for scrapbooking! ☕️☕️☕️
