Announcing A New Artist

Dear <<First Name お名前>>,

kira kira life has another new artist to announce! It is Rebecca, the creator of BexterDesigns (yes, there is no space between the two words).

Last week, I announced an artist who makes the crocheted dishwashing sponges. Well, Rebecca makes knitted ones. 

I was looking for someone who could make the dishwashing sponge that my mom's friend used to make in Japan. (She is no longer available to make them, yet I love her sponges.) Then, I found Rebecca who wasn't making the style of sponge but was very willing to give it a try. She has been so wonderful, patiently working with my detailed requests and bringing my desired outcome to fruition. Also, we have something in common. Can you guess? She is a teacher, too!

She is wonderful in many other ways, and one of which is that she donates a portion of her sales to charities, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (because her niece was born with it); Room to Read, helping girls have access to education worldwide; and the Susan G. Koman Foundation, helping those who struggle with and overcome breast cancer.

Rebecca says, "I strive to develop designs for my work that are both beautiful and functional." Yes, she does!

Please check out her beautiful and functional work that benefits others.

May you shine from within,

Akari Ueoka (owner)

In the last newsletter, I covered why these dishwashing sponges work. In case you have not read it, here is the recap :)

Acrylic yarn has very fine fibers similar to microfiber, and absorb water, so they wash dishes well even without detergent. (Only when I need to wash really oily dishes do I use a small amount of detergent. Also, I heard that adding some baking soda and/or vinegar works well, too.)

Because you do not have to use detergent much, it is gentle on your skin and on the earth - and it also lasts for a long time. I’ve had the same one for 3 years! You can wash it in a washing machine or a dishwasher, and you can dry it in the dryer. It is also scratch-free, so you can use it for many purposes, such as washing a bathtub and a car.
