Handmade Christmas Card

今年はクリスマスカードを出すのが遅れて絶対間に合わないと思っていたのですが、数日前からイギリスのお友達から手元に届いたというメッセージがいくつか入っているので、どうやら間に合った様子で、1週間ちょっとで到着したようでした。何年か前に同じ日に出した時はイギリスだけではなく日本やオーストラリアにも3、4週間かかっていたのでもしかするとシンガポール側の問題だったのかもしれませんね。

As I was late posting Christmas cards this year, I didn’t think they’ll make it in time, but a few friends in the UK messaged me saying they received them so it took much shorter for them this year to get there.   A few years ago I posted them almost on the same date and they took 3 to 4 weeks even to Japan and Australia, maybe there was some problem in Singapore that year.

シンガポールのお友達にもカードを出したので、やっと全て完了です。今年はなぜだかクリスマスカード作りを楽しむという気持ちになれず同じカードを大量生産してしまいましたが、短時間に作れるカードにしたので苦にならず数日で一気に完成してすっきりしました。

I’ve posted all the cards for my friends in Singapore as well, so I’m feeling good.  I didn’t feel like making Christmas cards at all this year and ended up making many cards of just 2 design (with just a few exceptions), but somehow I didn’t feel fed up, they were made just in a few days and it wasn’t bad at all.

が、今頃になって数枚違うカードも作りました。カードは1、2年使わずに置いておいてもそのままの状態で保てるので、来年使います(笑)。少し前にわたしが数年前に作ったカードを見ながらお友達が作られたカードを色やメッセージ部分を少し変えて作ってみました。

Having said that, I’ve made a few cards after sending all the cards out.  I have a few cards that I made a year or two years ago but they don’t discolour or anything and are still looking new so I’ll use these next year.  A friend made some cards looking at a photo of a card I made some years ago the other day, and I made these looking at her cards.  I just changed up the colours and the sentiments.
