Creativepreneur, DC to Japan

Design Festa Vol. 43 + Work Weekend Randomness

Hi kawaii + creative family!

Finally playing a bit of catch up as promised and sharing about my second experience at Design Festa, the single largest art festival in Asia. If you’re not hip, check out the happenings and more about Design Festa.

I PROMISE to blog this idea one day soon! ❤

While fundraising for my atelier, Little INKPLAY Shop, I thought it a good idea to experience the art/ creative hustle in Japan. My first time, ever, at Design Festa is where I met my kawaii sister and good friend, Kaila (Rainbowholic).

She pretty much pre-empted me sharing my art at Design Festa one day. ^^And golly gee! My dreams (Kaila’s premonition) came true when I was able to do Design Festa 42.

It was so fun that I came back to do it again! ^^
