Handmade Card

今日は、3人カードを作りに来られました。お1人は何度もいらしているお友達、お1人はもうすぐ本帰国されるお友達、もうお1人は最近香港からハワイに移住された親しいお友達のご紹介でお仕事でシンガポールに数日滞在されている方。カード作りは場所を取るのでいつもはお2人までにしているのですが、今日しかいらっしゃれない方もいらしたので今日は3人で。

3 people came to make cards today.  One of them have made cards many times before, one is leaving for Japan for good soon and one is a friend of a good friend (who moved from Hong Kong to Hawaii recently) who is visiting Singapore for a few days.  Usually I limit the number of people to make cards with to 2 people max because card making needs a lot of space and also because I cannot advice 3 people at the same time, but one of them can make cards mostly on her own and 2 of them wouldn’t have been able to come on a different day.

今日初めていらした方は、4枚作られました。何もかも初めてなので肩を凝らせていらっしゃったようでしたが、作るのはすごく楽しいとおっしゃっていました。5月にまた来星されるそうなので、そのときにまた。

The person who came for the first time made these 4 cards.  She was concentrating so much that I could see she was getting stiff shoulders but she seemed to enjoy making them very much, which is the main thing.

何度もいらしているお友達はバースデーパーティーの招待状を作られてました。いつも見本を見ながらではなく、ご自分のアイデアで作られるのでユニークなカードが出来上がります。

Friend who made cards many times before made some Birthday party invitations.  She seldom look at someone else’s card for inspiration, she comes up her own idea – something I find hard to do.

もうすぐ本帰国のお友達は、小さなサンキューカードをたくさん作られていました。

Friend who is leaving for Japan for good soon made many small simple “thank-you” cards.

帰国されるお友達とは今日が最後で、寂しい限りです。シンガポールは日本から結構遠いですし特に行きたいレストランがあるとか場所があるというのでもないので帰国されると遊びに来られる方は少なくて、遊びに来てねと言っても「たぶん来ない」という反応がほとんどなのですよね〜(笑)。神戸に行きます!とおっしゃっていたのでそれを期待しています。

 

Sad that it was the last time I saw this friend who is leaving for Japan soon.  Singapore is quite far from Japan and most people say they cannot think of any particular restaurants or places they want to re-visit so not many of my friends who leave Singapore come back once they leave.  She didn’t seem to want to come back either but she told me she would come and see me in Kobe so hope that’ll happen!
