More Californian Treats in Japan!
Kelly and I decided to have a swap of candy and cute buttons and trims. I'm especially in love with that little ice cream guy and the hedgehog buttons. I'm tempted to bring the Pop Rocks to school and feed them to my students, but I'm afraid their faces might fall off. Strange, super-sweet American candy exploding in their mouths can only lead to lots of girly screaming, but...I'm still tempted.
UPDATE: Here's a picture of two of my students attacking the pack of Pop Rocks Kelly sent me. They later ate them. Their faces did not fall off. A bit disappointing.
More Japanese Treats in California!
My package arrived early this week, crammed with fun, kawaii goodies she picked out especially for me! Here's a picture of (some of) the loot (I just can't seem to find the sweet treats anywhere... I wonder where they've gotten to?!?):
I love how all the trims are packaged onto a little piece of cardboard and tied with string... reminds me of all the careful yet casual styling in so many of my Japanese craft books. Anjali did an amazing job of picking for me - plenty of cute and fun to last me quite a while! Did you notice the "I am sitting" and "I am drinking" trims? Too much!
Anyway, the swap was a total success at my end, and I hope Anjali enjoys the goodies I sent her way just as well. Now I'm wondering if I should stalk someone else for another round...Kelly
