March Blog-o-sphere Think Tank

March's topic: best childhood/ younger years memory?

.............................................................................................................mmm..............................

not that I had bad childhood or anything but nothing really stands out to be that good. my parents took us to beautiful places for mountain hiking, field trips but all I remember is how tire I was from walking and just wanted to go home to read and craft. so my good memories are books I read & things I made. and the best is this!


OMG, these books bring back so many memories! I used to make everyone of these felt dolls that was in these books. and my dad bought them from me. I don't know what he did with them (probably gave to his students?) but I guess you can say that he was my first customer:) and when I was searching for book's pictures just now, I found her (author, Terumi Ootaka) blog! amazing after 30years.... wow.




Happy Crafting & Hope for quick recovery in Japan!

My aunt was a flight attendant and used to bring me the most gorgeous things from Japan. I used to have Hello Kitty jewelry and pencils before anyone knew what they were... and very cool flavoured toothpaste!

Like your post!

I love that your Dad bought the little felt dolls from you. It reminded me that my Dad had his secretary type up my poems, and how much that meant to me when I was young.
Thanks so much for such great memories!
Love this blog-o-sphere : )
