Ooh we bought some art.
The sculptor is Misato Sano, a lovely lovely girl from Sendai. Here is a translation of her fantastic artist statement:

I have used dogs in my work to express the various facets of feminity (some of them are based on female statues I personally admire). Dogs are always loyal to their masters. I make my work with the hope that they will also nuzzle up to their audience.

It's made from camphor wood so it smells amazing.

craft love festival

Last night from 6-9 I sold some cards at the Craft Love Festival at Mairehau High School.
It was a great night, a bit nippy outside, but I always have a blanket or two up my sleeve/in my car.

And I was super super excited because I had made a sock cat during the week, just one lonely little guy - and he sold within 10mins. Thank you dear customer.

I can't believe how happy it makes me when I sell something I have made. Just outrageously so.
