Moving around often is a part of the military life. Maybe some of don't like to moving every time, but I actually like this life style.

Since I'm from Japan and we've been in USA for 6 yearsw now, but still here is a foreign country to me, so it's so fun to visit and live different states!!

They certainly have their own atmosphire, tastes and lifestyles!! It's just SO FUN to feel it!!

Naming of "Survival Bracelet"...?

I just wrote this on my facebook page but I would like to add more details!!

My husband thinks that naming of "Survival Bracelet", (the bracelet made by 550 Paracord) is hilarious!!

He said "How do we survive with this small bracelet!!?? Hehehehe...."

Dah, I didn't name it!! it's common name because when you need, you can break bracelet into cords for emergency scenes!!

How can we use 550 paracord?? Here is a list from ist from (I actually laughed at "as Tooth floss".......but yeah it's possible!!)

Because individual strands of 550 paracord can be easily removed and combined into your own configurations, this small rope can be put to a wide variety of survival uses. As a general purpose utility cord 550 can be used for:

Ridgelines for Tarps
Securing Equipment
Hanging Food from Bears
Vehicle Tie Downs
Sewing Fabric
Repairing Equipment
Making a Fire Bow
Fishing Line
Paracord String for a Bow
Making a Shelter
Fish Gill Nets
Fishing Line
Animal Snares
Clothes Lines
Paracord Lanyards
Anchor Line
Animal Restraints
Tooth Floss
Paracord Braiding
Other Paracord Crafts

(More about 550 paracord, check

WOW!!! Unlimited way huh!? :-D

So if you get my handmade bracelet & wear everyday, someday it will help you in emergence situation!!!....??

.... Actually, mine is made by 3 different colors, and longest part is 1 yrd, so it's more like Fashon item then Emergency use"

By the way, if I make it with solid color, or double color, so the part will be more longer, and sure I can make it that way too :-)

550 paracord bracelet customazation available ;-D!!


Got coin jewerly? by The Fun Company

So during our little family vacation, we went PX at Ft. Benning in GA and guess what I found there:-)

Whole bunches of creative fine jewelries made by coins by The Fun Company.

I was just hooked because they are soooo beautiful!!!

It was very nice to chat with Mrs. Paige Greer at the booth, she told me that she & her husband make those coin jewelries in Alabama. Since I have metaric allergy, she gave me very helpful advices so kindly!

I couldn't take any pictures from her booth because we were in hurry with kids,

But they have a online store at and you can see their beatiful creative works!

And GOOD NEWS for my local people around Ft. Hood :-)

They are coming to Austin on May 1st & 2nd for Old Pecan Street Festival!! ( for more info)

If you are looking for special gifts for someone or yourself, thier coin jewerlies are just right ones!
