I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful little boys and one big boy (my husband)  We are living in Japan for the time being and it is just an amazing place to live.   I started sewing when I became pregnant with my first son and when I came to Japan I was introduced to the wonderful world of Zakka.  There are Zakka stores all over filled with adorable handcrafted items.  Sewing is also much more prevalent here.  Everywhere you go there seems to be a fabric store of some sort.  Its a bit much for me to handle as I seem to buy every adorable print that I see.
