How did everyone enjoy the cherry blossoms? My daughter, Maria and I enjoyed them very much. It's the first year that she really understood what cherry blossoms are, and when I first took her to see a tree in full bloom this year, she said, "Mama, it's snow!" I then explained to her that they wer flowers, but she then said, "Oh, flowers and snow!" It was very cute, and ever since she would shout, "Ah! Sakura!" whenever she saw a cherry blossom tree.
And yet AGAIN H.A. has made beautiful tsumami kanzashi pieces to sell in Manchester, England. She has totally surpassed what she thought was possible for her to do. I am SO very proud of her, and extremely impressed with her work. I hope she continues to be successful!
