Public Service Announcement: this is a wordy post. :)
A couple of months ago I stumbled across a blog post that offered 101 ideas for ways to use Washi Tape (or something like 101)...on the list of links and suggestions, was a url for the blog Hello Sandwich.
Hello Sandwich is the 'stage name' (I guess you could call it that!) for an amazingly talented crafter named Ebony. She's Aussie, she lives in Japan and she loves Washi tape. (Hello Mirror more like it! lol)
Everything about her blog is UBER-Japanese. Lots of white space, LOTS of cute graphics, lots of splashes of colour in delightful ways. In short--I'm in love.
So a few weeks back I found out she was going to be holding a class in Australia--MELBOURNE!!! I looked into it but unfortunately it was on a day when hubs works, so there was no chance to go...until she decided to add on an extra class on the following Monday (hubs' day off!!)... so I went.
Long story short, it was madness and I made the hour+ trip into the city, got hopelessly lost, came home distraught that I'd missed out. I contacted the workshop venue and left a message explaining how disappointed I was to have missed it but that I couldn't find the place ANYWHERE...
Then I got a call from Hello Sandwich herself asking if I would come back to craft with her for whatever time there was left of the class. So I did. I drove back into the city (another hour+ travel plus crazy traffic!) I got there FINALLY *phew*
and boy am I glad I did...I'll give you the rest in photos :)

Some of the adorable things on display made by Hello :)
I can't wait to sit down and make make make after this class I'm bursting full of ideas.
I've never crafted with other people before and it was SO fun. I can't wait to do it again!
If you would like to buy Hello Sandwich's zine or new book--go to her blog www.hellosandwich.blogspot.com.au/ I recommend it--such cute ideas!
Thank you SO much to Hello Sandwich for not only holding a fun, fabulous class, but for taking the time to contact me personally and asking me to come back. I'm so glad you did!
