printspiration #5: japan

Hello, I’m back!

Japan was ace. I loved pretty much everything about it, and was sad to leave, knowing that it may be a very long time (and that’s if I’m lucky) until I go back. It’s hard to summarise how I found it but – surprising, beautiful, exhausting and extremely good fun – would be a good start. Exhausting is my own fault, considering how much we packed in.

Unsurprisingly, the next few posts will be Japan-themed. Note: cute stationery may feature. I was certainly not disappointed with the stationery pickings, despite high expectations.

First of all, some pics. I was truly spoiled when it came to pattern inspiration.
