Today I had the most wonderful mail day ever. I received my very first Japanese craft books! I ordered them a few weeks ago through YesAsia (ISBN4277311474, ISBN4579110439, and ISBN4579109724).

These books are simply gorgeous. The ideas in them are just amazing, and the photography is beautiful.

Here are a few images from the books (sorry, I don’t have a scanner):

Oh, I am so in love with these. After gazing lovingly at them for a while, I asked Justin, “Can I order some more?” They’re just too cool for words.

    Those look so fun! I need to stay far away from them—I already have too many uncompleted craft projects. 🙂 But I love the idea of wearing aprons over everything. We should definitely start a new trend!

    Looks very cute. Great Find! But I don’t think those aprons would look good on me. haha But find me a chef hat and I’ll join the trend revolution. 🙂
