Feature Friday for Mochi Mochi Land

"Let's Make Happy!"

That is their wonderful, friendly slogan at MochiMochiLand, a very kawaii craft site.

I love this site because of it's simple layout, and yet it's very complex. It was founded in 2007 by Anna Hrachovec from Chicago. She wanted to make a place where crafters of cute knitted toys could all come together ^_^

Like me, she finds inspiration in cute Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty (who doesn't? So cute!)

Anna is a very impressive woman because she's determined to follow her dreams, and I totally respect that. This is what us Kawaii-dults (adults who live a cute lifestyle) do - we follow dreams.

In addition to a shop where you can buy some of Mochi Mochi's cute works, there is also a how-to section if you want to try your hand at some own. There is totally something addictive about crafting!

Her work is called Amigurumi 編みぐるみ, a type of crocheted toy popular in Japan

Anyway I have to go to work this morning and then Rob & I will be celebrating his 20-year anniversary in the same company where he & I eventually met in 2008. So proud of how far my husband has come!

Have a great day everyone!
