Thank you for all the wonderful messages for Sidra’s birthday! I read them all to him and he asked me: “Who are they, Mama?” Internet can be a wonderful place sometimes, don’t you think? My husband and I gave him a set of kobito DVD and karuta (Japanese card game). Sidra had been wanting them for sometime and almost bought them from his pocket money. He already has four kobito books, one doll, and one keychain!
Then a surprise package came in yesterday night! A few days ago, I won a gift package from Jojoebi at A Bit of This and A Bit of That, and the package arrived just in time for Sidra’s birthday! Jo sent a tote bag filled with a cute brooch (so thoughtfully made me a purple one), a shelf buddy, a set of little house rainbow coasters, a set of rainbow gnomes, a set of postcards printed on washi paper, a little patchwork coaster, and a Space Cadet Doll sewing kit.
The Space Cadet Doll is so simple and easy. I made it immediately and it was finished in thirty minutes! So cute! Sidra called him ‘Beida-kun’. I asked him what that means, and he said: “Well, nothing, it’s just his name.” Look at his happy face this morning! Thank you so much, Jo!
