It’s an exciting week this week, because from April 22nd-29th Artbox have a special 10% discount code on orders for stationary, stickers and cards. It’s in aid of ‘Stationary Week’ so it’s definitely a deal to take advantage of seeing as the only other time they have vouchers is for their Birthday on November 1st. It’s also free delivery on orders over £20!
Amongst some of the products on offer in these categories are the amazing tapes, including the washi tape set. They would be a great craft idea for things like Wreck This Journal, sketchbooks, papercraft or just general Sellotape needs.
I have wanted to go to Japan for longer than I have been obsessed with Moomins, believe it or not. I’m completely obsessed with their culture, fashion, music and food. Imagine my reaction when I found out there was a Moomin bakery and cafe there in the Tokyo Dome! Sadly, I’ve never been to Japan because the cost was far too much and I wouldn’t be going just for Moomins unlike when I go to Finland. Tomm has promised to take me one day though! It is possible we will be there for one of the Moomin Days on August 9th, or around my birthday in April. So, this post will consist of pictures of the amazing cafe there that I hope to visit for every meal whilst I am in Japan.
You sit at your table alongside huge plush Moomin characters. You eat food in the shape of them. You eat your food with Moomin cutlery. You are basically in Moomin heaven!
I’m the sort of person who loves to make things by hand rather than pay for them. I spend a lot of time on YouTube watching tutorials on different crafts such as nail art, hair, make-up, sewing and my latest obsession: polymer clay. I found that it wasn’t too expensive to buy so I took the plunge and bought some. I was a bit upset that I hadn’t seen any other people making Moomin characters out of them so I tried it myself. The clay goes a long way, especially if you make things that are small – they are more intricate but look cuter (and are more cost effective!). Here are a few of my clay Moomin creations that I’ve made in the last week:
I recently made a huge order of about £180 worth of Moomin products on Artbox for my Christmas presents. This site sells some exclusive items, such as cards, keyrings and this little beauty:
