Meet Our 1st Mic Moc Maker For Inspiration!  私たちの最初のブランドアンバサダーに会いましょう #micmocmakes #micmocmakers

It might’ve been the most whirlwind year ever, yet so much to be grateful for at Mic Moc—a growing following, (thanks to you), new product additions, new international wholesale customers and now definitely something we can’t wait to share: the first time we’re appointing Mic Moc Makers! 

A Mic Moc Maker is invited to work with us from a pool of inspiring people to watch on Instagram for their infectious creativity and well of inspiration to draw from. Above all, they love using our products and do so by displaying a unique crafting and journaling style which you just can’t help but want to try at home!

So you can imagine we’re a tad excited to introduce our inaugural Mic Moc maker, the multi-talented Takako.R @little_pink_sheep from the United States! Takako has very graciously agreed to grace our social media space by sharing with us her inspiring style. As a Mic Moc Maker she will soon inspire us with how she’s enjoying using Mic Moc stationery coordinated with other supplies in her own daily journalling and paper crafting projects.

We thought you may want to know a little more about Takako so we had a little chit chat with her recently.

Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Takako. I’m originally from Japan, living in the US. I love playing with papers and must admit I’m a paper hoarder. I enjoy paper crafts and art journaling. I also love collecting vintage ephemera and pressing flowers. Besides paper crafts & journaling, I enjoy hiking on trails and cooking. 

I’m really grateful for this MIC MOC maker opportunity and hope to be able to inspire people with my creations using MIC MOC products. 

あなた自身について少し教えてください。

こんにちは。タカコです。日本出身ですが、現在はアメリカに住んでいます。紙をいじるのが大好きで、紙もの収集癖があります。ペーパークラフトとアートジャーナリングが趣味で、ヴィンテージの紙ものを集めたり、押し花をしたりするのも大好きです。ペーパークラフトやジャーナリングの他には、トレイルでのハイキングや料理を楽しんでいます。今回、MICMOCメーカーの機会を頂き、本当に感謝しています。MICMOC製品を使用した作品で、皆様に刺激を与えることができたら、と思っています。

When did you start journaling and how did you begin?  About 4 years ago, my friend I got to know through Instagram was using a Traveler’s Notebook and I was totally hooked.  That’s how I started journaling!

ジャーナリングを始めたのはいつですか?また、どのように始めましたか?

4年前、Instagramで知り合った友達がトラベラーズノートを使っていて、影響を受けました。それが私がジャーナリング(手帳)を始めたきっかけです。

What inspires you most when you journal or craft?  I simply have fun decorating the pages and jotting down my thoughts and events as they take place in my life. I truly enjoy the process of paper crafting. Sometimes I so get stuck with ideas and find it a struggle, but that’s also a part of the whole creative process that I enjoy.

ジャーナルやクラフトをするときに最も刺激を受けるものは何ですか?

ジャーナリングでは、ページをコラージュしたり、日常生活で起こった出来事や、様々な思いを書き留める事を楽しんでいます。ペーパークラフトは、プロセスそのものを楽しんでいます。時々アイデアに行き詰まって、苦労する時もありますが、それも私が楽しんでいる創造的なプロセスの一部です。

What is your favourite motif for crafting and journaling?  This is a tough question because I love all kinds of motifs. I like to use flowers on my journals and vintage kids when collaging. It’s tough to pick a favourite!

クラフトとジャーナリングのお気に入りのモチーフは何ですか?

あらゆる種類のモチーフが好きなので、難しい質問です。手帳には、お花のモチーフを使うのが好きで、ペーパークラフトのコラージュには、ヴィンテージキッズのモチーフを使うのが好きです。お気に入りを選ぶのは難しいですね。

What’s your absolute favourite Mic Moc made product(s) and can you share why it inspires you? The ‘My Storybook’ and ‘My Playbook’ vintage children’s Illustrations die cuts (now replaced by stickers!) and journal cards were something that first caught my eye (when I first got to know Mic Moc). I think they’re so adorable and versatile as they add such a fun and unique touch to all kinds of paper crafts as well as journaling. If I’m allowed to pick another one, I just love the Paper Hoarder note pad! I thought it was hilarious when it was released right when the pandemic started and everyone was running to the store buying toilet rolls. It’s truly a unique note pad that’s fun to use for collaging and journaling!

お気に入りのMicMoc製品は何ですか?それがあなたにインスピレーションを与える理由を教えてください

My Storybook」と「My Playbook」シリーズのヴィンテージキッズのイラスト・ダイカット(ステッカーで、リニューアルされましたね!)とジャーナルカードが最初に目に留まりました。ジャーナリングだけでなく、ペーパークラフトにも活用出来て、とてもキュート。用途が広いと思います。

もう一つ選ばせて頂けるなら、Paper Hoarderのメモ帳が大好きです。パンデミックが始まって、誰もがトイレットペーパーを買い占めていた頃に発売され、そのタイミングの良さに思わず笑みを浮かべてしまいました。コラージュやジャーナリングに使える、とってもユニークなメモ帳ですね。
