Things are getting crazy here my friends. In less than one week I’ll be leaving Tokyo. We are sleeping on the tatami floor and our apartment is filled with half-filled boxes and suitcases. I’m trying to balance my days packing with adventures around town, but struggling. I still have many karaoke songs to sing. It is happening way too fast.Most of my time this past week has been dedicated to making our belongings disappear. Between the two of us we are allowed 106 kilos in luggage, which may seem like plenty but I assure it you it is not. I have been begging everyone I know to please take my hangers/toasters/fabric bits I can’t bear to throw out.
And now it is your turn. Of the six boxes I am shipping overseas, three are filled with craft supplies. *gulp*
These didn’t make the cut simply because I already have a set. (O_O) It is best not to ask why I ended up with duplicates (craft happens, people!). But my craft closet tragedy is your gain … let’s do a giveaway!
Kits #1 and #2 are cell phone charms. They have bells and pretty Japanese fabric. Each kit comes with supplies to make 3 clown or owl charms. They could also double as cute holiday ornaments.Kits #3 and #4 are “cute key holders!” made from beads. I have no idea how they come together, so you’ll have to tell me how it goes.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment here, on Facebook, or on Instagram. Each comment is an entry, I’ll compile the comments, do a random selection, and ship four lucky winners each a kit. Comments close in 36 hours! (At midnight Nov 19th.) I’ll mail prizes on Wednesday Nov. 20th so winners, after you hear from me, please send me an address ASAP.
Thanks everyone! Now please, take my stuff.
I hope you have a safe and trouble free move! Thanks for the giveaway. I, too, have never tried those kawaii beadwork projects, but I want to give it a shot.
Oh, these are all so adorable! I would love to take some of your stuff off your hands! Safe travels!
Shifting is a major event! Hope it works out smoothly!
Hope to win one of these cute kits!
Super cool kits! If you’re giving these away, what treasures are you keeping?

If I can be of any help, relieving you from some extra weight, I’ll be happy to take one of your givaways! the little owls are sooo cute! 😉
Safe move and best of luck in your new life in N.Y.!! 😀
I wish you could take it all with you but I would love to look after one of the kits for you. Safe travels and good luck in your new adventure!!!
Hi. Blossom heart quilts sent me your way. Those packs are all so cute, but I especially like the phone charms.
Oh, those owl charms are so cute!
It’s a shame you have to get rid of some stuff. Destashing is the hardest thing to do, especially when you’re moving and you’re really forced to make those tough decisions. I can’t say I’ve experienced it moving from country to country, but even moving across the city once, I was forced to confront just how much stuff I had and how much I had to get rid of because hauling it from one apartment to the next was just going to be more than I could handle.
Would love kit 1 or 2. I’ve lived in the same house all my married life, over 30 yrs. I couldn’t imagine having to limit what I could take with me…how sad it would be to let some things go. Glad you have wonderful memories and hope all goes smoothly for the move.
You’re looking at it the right way! Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂
How sad you must be to be leaving such a beautiful city I have just returned from spending a month in this most creative city in which you could never grow old You will take so much with you in your thoughts which need no space
Have fun and create wherever you are
Good luck on your transition and your new adventures!
Safe moving! I am sorry you have to purge but think it’s great you are offering us the chance to give those kits a good home!
I couldn t pack my life in one week… And I want to help you with this giveaway!!!!
all the best! hope the transition is as smooth as it possibly can be!
