my new friend

I'm not sure how we got to be e-mail friends. (sorry!)

We e-mail each other quite often and she often gives me links to interesting pages that she finds.

One day she mentioned that she wanted to find some Hello Kitty musubi molds and the die-cut punches for nori (seaweed) for the Hello Kitty and friends faces.

I went out to the closest Sanrio store and found the molds, but couldn't find the die-cut punches. What I did come across were some sheets of nori that were pre-cut with the faces. I picked that up instead.

I sent them to her and she loved them.

My new friend Shar is very crafty.

As thanks for the molds, she sent me some of her creations. A cute tee and tote bag, along with a baking pan and poke mix.

She has a link if you are interested purchasing a durable tote bag. She handpaints each creation. Shar says to get your orders in soon because she'll be overwhelmed by Christmas and she has many craft fairs to attend during the Fall.

Thank you Shar! I hope to meet you the next time I'm home.

UPDATE: the link mentioned above did not work as of 2011, so I disconnected it.

Hello Kitty musubi molds?!? The things that you can find these days, that is too cute.

Kat you amaze me at keeping up with email, postcards, blogging, cooking, beading (I presume you are still doing that) and running around exploring. Three days a week is plenty enough for me...my brains get tired. :(

K and S said...

Thanks Rowena :) I try to keep myself as busy as possible.

Take care.
