A Short Trip to Okinawa 7




There was a pool outside of the hotel.
It was still cold to swim in the pool even though we were in Okinawa.
The pool was not so big, but it was just beautifully fit in the air in which looked floating in the sky.

I made these original matryoshka dolls using a kit I bought from Kokeshka in Kamakura.

I colored them with colored pencil and acrylic paint. It was difficult to get the colors I wanted, but fun!

Ribbonesia workshop!



Because I’m a big fan of Ribbonesia art project, it was awesome that I could join his workshop to make a bird (kotori) at SHINDO showroom!
At first, we chose kotori’s colors… for head + body and its bill.
Bent beautifully, stapled some places… to make cute kotori.


I created it from blue & wine ribbons. I love it!



A Short Trip to Okinawa 6



The room where we’ve stayed was a cozy room with large windows.
It was also filled with a sense of liberation and lots of sun shines. And, there was a balcony in the room.
We could see the East China Sea over the green. It was the best place to relax there.


Also, there were a shampoo, a conditioner, a soap and a body lotion of L’occitane in the bathroom as the hotel amenities.


Moreover, there were a free tea and coffee with mineral water, and also, we had some free tropical fruits on the table.
