Kawaii! craft share

I been having a rough ride at the moment with depression and my head injury as well as having one or two individuals messing me around - enough I say! So I need a posting that would cheer me up and so i bring to you this bright and colourful edition of craft share based on my favourite word you'll hear me using - KAWAII! meaning cute in japanese, Kawaii culture over there is very particular and I hope i selected a few things that encapsulate kawaii and things I seriously lust over! Kawaii is just my weakness!

How brilliant is this?! Look at all the colours, the details going into these little clay bits! how amazing! I just want to roll around in a huge bath full of these! This is really something no? and makes me so happy to see this picture! these would make great nail art wouldnt it?

KAWAII ONIGIRI PLUSH - Super cute Kawaii Onigiri Plush Toy
Awwww! how cute are these?  These are Onigiri plushies!  Onigiri is rice balls and is a popular japanese snack. These little darlings with their little rosy cheeks and adorable faces are the essence of kawaii! I like what the maker had to say on her profile as well!
Emelie Jensen - 
"I am a big fan of Japanese pop culture, art and fashion, and therefore decided to combine one of my biggest passions with my art skills, and try something new."

That is crafting at its best - combining your passions together and trying something new - well said!

Its subtle and I like it!
Kawaii Unicorn Charm Necklace
Now to the other extreme, kawaii over-load with colours and textures! What a busy and exciting necklace! A huge part of me would love to own this and I'd wear it in a kitsch way and style it with a cartoon print dress and bright pink heels! And I love the edgey bite to it beng the skulls! rock on!
