craft | japan love
one week after the earthquake/tsunami and japan is still in dire straits. like so many, it's on my mind and i wanted to make something, so i used japanese washi tape, paper and my favorite punch to make butterflies. they are meant to represent the metamorphosis japan is going through and i've read butterflies are symbolic for many reasons, including the ability to bounce back from setbacks and longevity. i hope that will start soon.
when i bought the tape months ago, it reminded me of swedish design. now, it reminds me of the red cross. have a nice weekend.
ps the new video by gia coppola for orla kiely features a great song from the band rooney and i also love the song holdin' on.
