I am so intrigued with Japanese craft, and lots of crafty bloggers are as well, but I am more into their overall style not so much the stuffed creature thing.

The one lucky thing is that I have a mother who is a flight attendant with various international trips,. The UN-lucky thing is that no matter how many pictures and visuals and descriptions I give her of these coveted craft books, she just can't quite get it. I get lots of rice paper, colored pencils and lots of Japanese calligraphy type stuff, but bless her heart I can't get through that " I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SUMI BRUSH" just a book or magazine with embroidery or crochet or purses!

But this is hilarious to me. As a child I was always a little creeped out about Ronald McDonald ! I was cool with the "Hamburgler" and "Grimace" cuz they were just muppet equivalent. And Ragedy Ann and Andy where this generational obsession by my mother had when I was a child. So when I noticed this Japanese interpretation of Raggedy Ann all I could think of was, Oh dear, Ronald/Ann is in crazy Drag! which is kinda weird cuz I always thought Ann to be a bit butch. As a tribute, since Cindy loves softies, this ones for you!
