What's in my goodie bag from Japan: Shinzi Katoh!


Shinzi Katoh has just twirled me around in circles of giddy. I so wish we had a Shinzi store in Hawaii! I'd like to say a big MAHALO to my pal Makiko who was so nice to get these pretties for me! I can't wait to show you my new goodies!

Let's start first with the business card and packaging:

Sweet gift wrapping! (^•^) Natural twine and light sea foam blue raffia, powder pink tissue, orange stickers, everything looks so cute together!

 This is my favorite photograph!
When I saw these two peeking out at me from the wrapping I had to get a snapshot.
 The box I'll never throw away (^•^)

 I'll be posting the rest of my pics soon. I'll show you what was in these boxes...too cute!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
