I have a co-dependent relationship with pretty Japanese office supplies and spent a ridiculous amount of time at Kinokinuya Bookstore. Lately I've been obsessed with these patterned washi tapes and even made some pencils as a holiday gift for my friends last December. They are made of 100% recycled HB pencils and washi tapes, though I call them happy tapes because they make me smiley-happy.
So, as part of my Lunar New Year intention and my thank you for reading this little blog, I'd like to give a set of DIY pencils + some Japanese office supplies to you. Drop me a line at the comment section and I'll let my students pick 3 lucky winners from a hat. You have until next Friday to do so and if you're still shy, you can also e-mail me at oalpuerto(at)yahoo(dot)com instead. International readers are welcome. Cheers! xoxo.
