Merry Chirstmas!

Merry Christmas, my dear friends!

I’m very sorry that I hadn’t updated my blog posts for a long time. Two months ago, I returned to Japan from my last studying abroad in America this year. I felt like burned out for a while and became lazy gradually.  I apologize it to you all. I started blogging again, and I will show you what I learned in America and what I did there one by one.

In Japan today is a Christmas eve and tomorrow is a Christmas day. Did you receive some gifts from Santa?

In my case, I received a wonderful gift from Santa this summer!

This summer, our friend, Zach from America stayed at our house for two months. One day he found a kitten, and our daughter named him Jiji. He was only 6 weeks old.

He is a very playful kitten and he turns 8 month old. He turned out a very handsome tubby cat. I’m enjoying being a mom again for him.

I painted his teeth box, and this is one of my newest artwork. I hope you like it.

I love porcelain painting because we can paint any kinds of shaped thing like this teeth box. I think painting only on round dishes or square tiles are quite boring. I love designing for the different shaped porcelain and painting on them. I really think it’s one of fun things for porcelain painters.

When I found Jiji’s baby teeth, I thought painting a box to keep his baby teeth was a wonderful idea. I got the white box from one of my American moms in Michigan, Kay. Thank you so much for the box, Kay!

      • Sorry for the consfution,Yumiko!Unfortunately, i don’t have any kitties nor cubbies (I’m too busy taking care of myself, how to balance out my work and private life).What I meant was it was such a cute and beautiful masterpiece that I wish I could have it for myself!!!
