Bustle Magazine

The awesome thing about making books is that you have NO idea where they end up!
Found Kawaii, Japan's Culture of Cute on a book recommendation list on Bustle magazine based on the readers favorite Neko Atsume Kitty. Apparently if you like Sassy Fran, the maid cat, you should read my book!

Check it out here. 

According to Nako Amtsume wiki:
  •  Sassy Fran's waitress outfit seems to be that of a French maid.
  • Sassy Fran's English name is from a song by Danny and the Juniors, which is about a Cat (a 1950's term for a hip woman) that everyone loves and wants to be with. 
thanks Kristian Wilson for the shout out xxxx

Tohoku donations

Just a quick one to say we donated 12,695 Y to Animal friends Niigata (via a lovely Ozzie lady who purchased kokeshi books off me) which brings the total of donations to 400,000Y to Tohoku related charities. Thanks so much!!!!
