If you are ever in Seattle and you are a stationary, copic marker or gel pen nerd and/or like cute Japanese things, you must visit Kinokuniya book store (next to Uwajimaya) in the International District.
Two words: washi tape.
I have previously sung the praises of this fabulously cute patterned masking tape, but in case you were unaware, prepare to be enabled.
Unsurprisingly, Kinokuniya bookstore sells books (in addition to all kinds of Asian magazines, books, manga, stationary, music, etc). Some of the books are in English, but the majority are not. But let's face it. When it comes to art/inspiration books, mostly, we just care about the pictures.
So I happily snagged this cute little washi tape inspiration book because of the number of color and project ideas that lay within. (If you google washi tape inspiration book, you can see that there are all kinds of options. If you are interested in this one, I think you can call Kinokunya and order it shipped anywhere.

I really liked the variety of projects and examples of different patterns of tape used. I am so totally inspired by this book right now. Even if I can't read the instructions. ;)
