In this instance, it's a good thing that you don't live close, otherwise there might be a break-in at Chez Secrest. Do you get most of those at the Asian markets?

Hi Amy - Thanks so much for de-lurking and leaving a link to these goodies!! Have you made anything out of the palm sized stuffies book yet? I have that one too.

I received my Japanese beading books, which you inspired me to buy after seeing Beadcraft Desserts! If you like little beaded animals you should totally look into Keiko Kitamura's Motif Beads (4522421842) and New Motif Beads (4522422520). So cute! Have you tried making anything out of Beadcraft Desserts yet? They're adorable, but I'm intimidated! :) Do you read Japanese or do you follow the diagrams? I'd like to buy more Japanese crafting books, but I'm wondering how much success I'll have as a non-Japanese reader.

Regarding your April 13 post (which is my birthday, how weird is that?): Oops! I didn't know you knew a Kiki, or I'd have signed previous comments more specifically. I shall henceforth be "Kiki:)".

It's brilliant that everyone is sharing this information. I've just ordered something which is similar to Beaded Desserts but your book looks delicious. Oh dear, I'll have to get ordering again.

Hey Kiki:)-
I would have emailed you, but you didn't leave it! I am glad to hear you got the books, they are just beautiful. I have made a few things from the beaded deserts, and I will try to get around to posting them soon! No I don't read Japanese, I just follow the pictures!-- the pictures/graphs are incredible-- you will be fine! :)
thanks for stopping by! leave your email next time! Thanks Kiki:)
