Pray for Japan VII: Craft Sale at Noriko's

You think you know someone until one day....

Highly talented Sugar Land ladies planned once again a charity craft sale for Tsunami Relief.  They are Noriko, Mitsuko, Yuko and Masako.

It was another fun day with friends and guests discovering talents of someone you know. It made me feel so warm and excited just looking and touching such delicate and beautiful works of art.  Many other ladies also helped out by baking sweets and bread for the sale.  Every body's favorite, Mitsuko's jewelry was not in the photo here...  They sold out quickly but she received many orders, and the good part is they  will custom made for your taste and size!  She will be so busy in the next few months.

 I don't have anything and any talent for the sale but joined anyway (just for the sake of it and also as a craft experiment) by making flower vase/diffuser and origami crane ornament.

Love and peace both in Japanese and English

My girls and their friend Alexis also made bracelets and we all enjoyed the process.

Yuko's wine glass marker sold out very quickly.

Noriko's beautiful Pumpkins.  The one in the middle was quite a size.
Fun decoration for the season.

Noriko's father (in Japan) made beautiful key holder from sea shells
