I stopped by the Alderwood Mall’s Daiso store to check on their current supplies. But it’s not the supplies that you may be thinking of…
I went to Daiso in hopes of finding some etegami tools like washi, ink and water colors because Deborah Davidson of dosankodebbie’s etagami notebook is holding a 2010 MailArt Call on the theme of “Food and Recipes”. How cool is that? I’m going to give it a try. She states in her blog that she will send one in return for your mailart! I say “go for it”! We bento foodies have plenty to express donchathink? So what are we waiting for? Let’s do it. Bento-etegami! :)
And after all my excitement… I didn’t find anything suitable for a proper etagami at Daiso. On the bright-side, I did see a lot of bento stuff. Can you believe I didn’t buy a single item related to bento at all! Well, there was a cute chopstick set… but it’s a gift so it doesn’t count!
I did manage to snap a couple shots of their current stock. See anything you already have or want to have? They have some cute bento stuff; most of them only $1.50!!! That large bento box on the bottom shelf next to the empty space was only $4.00! What? And I still walked away. But I have this urge to go back and get it. It’s a sickness I tell ya!
Anyhow, please go and visit the etegami blog to view Deborah’s gallery of beautiful Mailart. Very inspirational and I hope to someday see one of my etegami posted there. But first I need to get some art supplies.
