Handmade Christmas Card

やっと、クリスマスカードを海外には全部発送しました!絶対間に合わないと思いますが、とりあえず全部作って送れて、すっきり!

I finally sent out all the Christmas cards to outside Singapore.  I doubt very much if they’ll get to the destinations in time for Christmas but I feel good that I’d made them and sent them out.

今年はなぜかなかなか作りたいと思うカードを思いつかず、時間が経つにつれて「短時間に作れて好きな感じのカード」と思うとますます思いつかず、どんどん時間が経ってしまったので、結局とてもとてもシンプルなカードを2種類だけ大量に作りました。他にも随分前に作ったカードが数種類あるもののほとんどがその2種類なので、アップするのはカードが到着してからにしようと思います。

I don’t know why but somehow I couldn’t get the mojo back this year for Christmas cards.  I kept trying to find the cards I wanted to make but somehow couldn’t then as the time got closer to Christmas I got pressured more and more but still couldn’t find any that I wanted to make.  In the end I made many of 2 different cards rather than many different ones like usual.  I had made a few different ones earlier in the year so some of my friends will get them but most of them will get one or the other so I won’t upload the cards until the time they get them.

 

今日はお友達お2人がカード作りに来られ、お2人とも2枚ずつ作られました。どちらも、とっても素敵に出来ました。

2 friends came to make cards today and both of them made 2 Christmas cards each, both very pretty.

こちらは、わたしが数年前に夫に作ったカードを色を変えて作られました。わたしのはベージュと白で地味でしたが、色を変えるととても可愛らしくなりました。

One of them made 2 of this referring to a card I made for my husband some years ago but using different colour for the base.  They look very girly and pretty.

あれこれおしゃべりしながらの、楽しい時間でした。

It was lovely to catch up with them while they made cards.
