New Shirt - Boto Family Reunion

Even Botos have family reunions. Just like any family reunion, it's a time of joy and conflict.

This fun new shirt is a two color screenprint on a Heather Lake Blue American Apparel Mens/Unisex T-Shirt. The shirt is made of a super soft and comfy Poly-Cotton (50% Polyester / 50% Cotton).

Now available in my etsy shop.

Ohisashiburi desu ne!!

That's Japanese for "long time no see!" It certainly has been a long time since my last post. Somehow my page traffic has been way up in the days that I don't write anything. hmm. Either way, I appreciate you all for sticking by me and if it's your first time then I hope you come back soon!

Since my last post, I've been extremely busy with preparations for my first craft show of the season, Sakura Sunday. I was a vendor at this event which is the biggest event in the Philly Cherry Blossom Festival hosted by Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia. The event was my most successful boto show everrrr! The weather was sunny and warm, there were tons of people and the atmosphere was very friendly, fun and festive. I couldn't have asked for a better audience!

Working hard at the Boto Booth - See More Pics Here

So, needless to say that after 2 weeks of prepping for Sakura Sunday and then selling to huge crowds... I was completely wiped. I decided to take a much needed boto semi-break. I worked on some custom work and still sent out purchases but I gave myself some time to relax and work on my upcoming wedding (wee!).

As for boto updates. I've be posting lots of fun new items to my etsy shop in the last few days so be sure to stop by and check them out.
