Brief Relief

Hello Hello :)

I'm happy to announce that I'm back on broadband speed (yeaaaaa!), and I have two more papers to go before I'm finally done for the semester :). Thank you for your wonderful comments and lovely support from the previous post. You are all *stars*. :)

And while I am still not back to crafting (how I miss sewing something - anything!), I have some yummy crafty-ish goods to share :).

I know that Aranzi Aronzo are "old news", but their creations never cease to be cute, and I just had to blog about them :).

Aranzi Aronzo's website is filled with awesome fabrics, stationery, totes, tableware and other knick knacks. Their craft books, like all other AA's goods above, are very very adorable. In addition to cute characters (Usagi is my fave), they are also filled with awesome humour. I remember giggling every now and then, reading the how-to's in one of their craft books. If I remember correctly, it is Cute Dolls (digging up one year old memory).

Who are Aranzi and Aronzo?
There was a blurb in Cute Dolls about the designers... And the following is the same blurb taken from the website (check this page out. You'll see why later).

Mr. Aranzi has a Mexican father and a Japanese mother. It's been 10 years since he started creative activities in cooperation with Mr. Aronzo. He lives in the U.S.A. and works at a securities firm.
Mr. Aronzo is a Norwegian Vietnamese-Indian. He lives on the street and travels all over the world. His main occupation is playing the tambourine.

I have to honestly say that I can be quite gullible. Or a sucker. Whichever you prefer ;). When I first read that, I was mystified. But it dawned on me that a hobo by the name of Aronzo, surely could design cute plushies and write craft books. And wow, a geek like Aranzi who works at a securities firm can be a super crafty designer! There's hope for me ;).

Oh, I'm such a sucker.

Read this. You'll laugh. I promise.

Anyhoo, my stupidity aside, for more AA goodness, visit their online website. Even if you don't make a purchase, it's a good webbie to gawk at cute stuff. And if you're anything like me, smile at the cuteness of it all.
