Report on the Tetote Handmade Award 2013

The 37th Japan Hobby Show 2013 is expected to attract more than 130,000 visitors. I was, however, surprised to see more buyers than visitors today, queuing up for tickets.

Posing in front of the sign.

I honestly can't remember the last time I got a prize.

All of the winners from among 7,439 entrants are honored to be recognized for the award.

"The Phantom in the Frame" is on display at the Tetote Handmade Award's booth.

「額の中の怪人」はtetote Handmade Awardのブースに展示されています。 
A whole range of amazing handicrafts are available for sale, some of which really inspired me.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

When you're feeling in the dumps, don't be silly chumps.  落ち込んだときは、くよくよせずに

Just purse your lips and whistle. That's the thing.  口をすぼめて口笛を吹こう。それが肝心だよ。
