Welcome to my blog.
After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general).
Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.
I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).
I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!
I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Packing kumihimo kits...
Finally! Yesterday the last items for my kumihimo kits arrived; some Kraft boxes that fits the braiding disc perfectly. I´ve decorated them with washi-tape and my new calling cards.
Now I need to sit down and finish the instruction sheet, and they´re all ready.
5 boxes are for my first ever kumihimo course, 2 is for my Epla shop and one is for a friend.
I still have 4 Kraft boxes, so I´ll have to order some more braiding discs if this turns out to be popular.
My mum is opening a shop/ workshop in Lillehammer, in main street Storgata, next month.
I will have my kumihimo products there + I can come for courses if someone is interested.
More info coming on that, with pictures! I´m currently working on displays for my bracelets + a new line of earrings to go with the kumihimo and my mums felted products.
