Shop open :D
Wchschoooooo [sci-fi door opening sound effect] Taaa-daaa! Berrysprite is now open. It's going to take me a while to get everything in there, but I'll be updating the shop fairly often until Valentine's Day. I'm also trying to finish up some of the special yarn bears with needle felting, so stay tuned for those. I'm planning to have a new lion, a kappa, valentine's day bear pops, mochi, dim-sum, and more available too, I just haven't had a chance to photograph them yet. However, one of the things I'm most excited about is in there at this very moment... remember that picture of the huge yarn I had a bit earlier on my blog? Well I made a huge takochu out of it! These suckers (haha, quite literally, since its an octopus) are really big, (around 5" or 12 cm tall, 5" or 12 cm in diameter) and they dwarf my regular takochu... see photos for size comparison! My sister and a customer who requested a large takochu both independently coined the phrase "mondochu," hahaha! Because they're so huge, they will sell for $35 but that includes free shipping to anywhere in the world. We'll see how it goes; currently I only have orange and red but I have other yarn colors too, like black, pink, light blue and greens. I'll keep you updated!
