Japanese Joy

I am back with another Handmade Artists' Forum Blogring Featured Artisan. This week I am going to introduce a new member on HAF, Kazumi. Kazumi hails from Yokohama, Japan, and has thrown herself into activities on HAF. She maintains a great blog where she is promoting other handmade artisans with gusto, as well as doing blogs about her creations.
She makes wonderful purses and clutches in cheery prints, including cute owls and funky sock monkeys. She also does some amazing chalk art designs, including designs perfect for cafes and restaurants. And then to top it all off she makes Sock Monkeys. I love Sock Monkeys, so happy and carefree.
So now that I have given you a taste of all she does, check out more for yourself. You will find her blog here, and her purses here. Then you will find chalk art over here and finally click here for Sock Monkeys. And on top of all of that, she has an Etsy store!
