We love Anna’s adorable creations and were happy to feature her most recent gallery show, MochiMochi Worlds, here on the Notebook earlier this season.
Craft Magazine maintains a wonderful blog that includes projects from fiber arts to deep fried strawberries. This is a great read for anyone who loves crafting in general; it’s chock full of information and inspiration!
