1  Re: How do you write "Mika" in Japanese? in Japan by MissMeat on: December 08, 2008 05:23:29 AM
In Katakana it would be ミカ。Which is very easy but not so beautiful.
Like my crafty ways said there are many kanji for any given syllable.
My Japanese isn't great
I recommend having a look at a kanji web page ... these links have the standard way of writing the kanji and kanji calligraphy.

Mi = 実 = real
魅 charm

見 = look see watch

Ka = 化 change http://www.yamasa.cc/members/ocjs/kanjidic.nsf/SortedByKanji2THEnglish/%E5%8C%96?OpenDocument
克 = conquest
火 = fire

maybe "watch change" (see her change) or "real fire" would be nice


I prefer to write my own name in Katakana タラ in Kanji my stamp is 多羅 which means something like "a lot of silk gauze"
I made these before I went to Japan:

2  Mario DS Cozy in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by MissMeat on: September 03, 2008 09:48:58 PM

This cozy protects my DS lite. I'm a fan of old school games. I love the New Super Mario Bros. so much more than the new 3D Mario games. So 2D Mario jumping to get the gold coin is a perfect cozy to protect my DS.

I just found an image of the pair I made for the crimson doll painting & thought I would post it. I thought I'd fixed the contrast but hadn't & ... well ... I'm too lazy to do it right now ...

Thanks for looking

It's really flattering to have someone request to see more of your art. Thank you RepentantAngel, your post made me smile which I really needed ... I found that my credit card was missing this morning so ... it's been a vexing day.
Once again Thanks for looking.

I'm quietly giggling, but thank you ... inspiration is a funny thing, even though I think that I was quite an ugly baby ...

Anyway I went though a period where I drew a lot of kids faces.

9  Scarves, Pockets, Hats and Bits. (photo intensive) in Knitting: Completed Projects by MissMeat on: July 19, 2008 10:06:51 AM
Hello, I'm new here and I've been looking at other people's projects ... I really wanted to join the fun & share some of my stuff...

I'm a bit of a gamer geek, I remember when I was little my mum got me an Atari 2600 one year for Christmas and around the same time she taught me to knit ...

Aliens inspired kitties ...

Girly stuff ...
