Saitama Craft Mafia

I finally got my act together and invited all and sundry to the first ever Saitama Craft Mafia meeting, this afternoon I actually organised myself (in my head at least) and planned out what we would be doing. If you are in the area and free this Friday morning from 10.30am onwards, want to sit, craft and chat* then drop me a line and I will fill you in on the rest of the details.

The aim is to have a monthly meeting of like minded people with the sole intention of creating, what we will create will change from month to month but we will have some kind of theme. I am hoping that those who join will be willing to share their talents and that we can all grow, learn and inspire together.

I thought about starting this so many times last year but my main concern was child proofing the house, our house is no where near child proof but Ebi-kun is fine with scissors, pins and other sharp implements. I don't have to worry about pens and paints lying about, it has never crossed his mind to take to the wall with them. And then there are the stairs, we have no baby gate and there is no way to lock kids in one room, so it has always put me off starting the group but now, Ebi-kun is older and soon will be out during the day so I don't need to worry about child proofing anything, once he starts kindy it can be an adult only event, I never thought I would see the day LOL.

*I am so looking forward to having a group of people around that I can talk arty-farty with, for years when I came to Japan, most of my friends were English teachers and so conversation would usually end up being about teaching (or bitching about the company you work for). Then, I had Ebi-kun and my circle of friends changed and now conversation is usually a kid related one way or the other, which is all very good and well but I have got to the stage where I am hankering for conversation of a different kind. It will only be a couple more months when Ebi-kun is off to kindy and so I can have grown up conversation in an all grown up environment and I have to be honest, I can't wait!

So, Friday 29th, 10.30am ~ you have had enough,
if you are interested email me and if you can't make it this time but are still interested let me know.
