Despite my Korean heritage, I’m an unabashed Japanophile, so no trip to Seattle is complete with a stop at Uwajimaya and Kinokuniya.  Usually I stop in for a quick lunch at the food court and then spend an hour (or several) at Kinokuniya browsing Japanese craft books and magazines.  This time I skipped lunch in favor of some frozen yogurt (made from strained Greek yogurt) with crushed oreos.  (Which was a good thing because that left room for my mid-afternoon snacks at Salumi and Le Panier.  More on both later.)  As my collection of Japanese craft books has grown, I’ve gotten *much* better at restraining myself from purchasing everything at Kinokuniya.  Still, it’s hard (ahem, impossible) to walk away empty handed, so I did buy this book and one of my favorite Japanese pens.  I cannot wait until I have some time (hopefully soon) to make some projects from this book.  Happy Friday!
