Bead Embroidery Workshop on Maui
Dear <<First Name お名前>>,
kira kira life believes that hand-made products have a special power to let us shine when we use them. What if we made them ourselves? We bet that the process of making something with our own hands lets us shine even more.

Therefore, kira kira life has decided to host workshops that teach us to create things/foods with our own hands.

I've hosted Miso Making workshops, and this time, I am hosting a Bead Embroidery workshop taught by a patient teacher, Kunie. 

It will be held this Saturday in Kahului, Maui. There are still some seats left. Please register here and join us to learn how to create an image one pixel (bead) at a time. (You can have your own design.)

May we shine from within,

Akari Ueoka (owner)

The covered button hair ties for the children of Fukushima have been steadily purchased. Thank you. I almost sold out the middle size, so I got 20 new ones from Japan. Please check them out here

Here is the story about how these buttons came about if you do not know yet -

After the devastating earthquake in Japan in 2011, Madoka began making these covered button hair ties to raise money for the children of Fukushima. 

Madoka's goal is to raise another $1,000 to donate to a worthy cause (she has already raised $1,000 in the past). Therefore, you won't be charged the general tax on this product. Kira kira life turns over 100% of the revenue to Madoka, and when her goal comes to fruition, I will let you know.

The fabrics were donated by a Hawaiian clothing company called Sig Zane. Their vivid and Hawaiian nature inspired fabrics will bring fun and sprint of Hawaii to you.
