@ grandma's

it's been a month, since i moved to my grandma's house.
i was supposed to be in chicago, so i was kind of bummed to still be in japan, but now im kind of glad that i can spend time here. so relaxing!
i have a many wonderful memory here as i visited every summer and winter when i was a kid.

i will be here until next spring, so i want to enjoy as much i can before i move to chicago for good.
here are snaps of the house. toys my brothers, sister, and i used, old furniture, my grandmas handmade japanese dolls, view from the house, etc...

my project of making a little printing studio is going well.
i set up the dark room at closet!
things i need is almost all delivered. i order inks from usa, but delivery cost me same as inks.... but i wanted to use inks that im used to. ( pro chemical )
i was away from japan such a long time, so i dont really know where to get screen print products here, i googled but dont know which one is good!
im waiting my printing table (dining table) now.
i will put some pictures when i finish set up my new studio and tell you my new portable screen making machine.
lots of new stuff & design will be available soon!

and, thank you for your kind words for patapri's re-opening. :)
it really means a lot to me.

my recent purchase hedgehog moss bonsai @ j.period


i can't believe its already october...
i'm back in japan, and i will be here next few months.
i had a most amazing time in europe and now i'm setting up temporary studio at my grandma's house. since my grandma passed, nobody lives here, so while i'm in japan, i decided to live here which i have many wonderful memory of my childhood.
it's a pretty big house for one person, but since it has lots of space, i can print! so now i'm getting a new screen making machine and stuff.
while i make a new stuff, i will re-open PataPri shop on etsy to start sell towels i printed in summer in chicago.
hope to see you at my etsy shop next week!
