And, here are 8 things about me.
1. I live in Japan and never lived in other countries, but I like to travel abroad.
2. I like to learn foreign languages. Besides Japanese and English, I also speak German. Recently I have few opportunities to speak German, so I've forgot a lot. The other languages I've ever learned are Spanish, French, Korean and Chinese.
3. I collect Disney pins (I like Chip and Dale) and postage stamps from around the world.
4. I like to eat something sweet. (with chai tea it would be perfect for me!)
5. I like scrapbooking, collage, jewelry making, art yarn spinning, sewing ... I like to be crafty.
6. I don't like liquorice candies.
7. I love my two little children and "big child" (my hubby).
8. Places I've never been to but wish to visit are: Dubai, WDW, Angkor Wat, Marrakesh, Paris.
Though I called her last week, I've not met her for more than 5 years, she has never met my daughter and of course my 3-week-old son. What I can do for her is to send some photos of my children. And to send a card with photos, too!
I made an image for nengajo (postcard for Japanese new year's greeting).
First I embellished a paper bag (I used masking tape, lace paper, butterfly punchies etc.), then scanned, and added photos and some embellishments digitally.
Now I have to print this image, and then write something like "wishing you a happy 2011" or so.
2011 is the year of rabbits, can you find a rabbit on the image?
Larissa, one of a few scrapbookers whose style I like so much, did an amazing job with this sketch.
And, here is my take:
We visited Tokyo Disney Sea last week, these photos were taken there. After printing the photos yesterday I decided to use this wall hanging for this layout. So I've already lost a wall hanger, though halloween is coming!
This time we needed to -
1. Make use of those negatives after you use punches,die cut left overs and alphabet sticker let overs.
2. Before and AFter photos of same object. (new bornbaby and middle school kid, or plain ground and thehouse built on it. do you get it?)
3. Use Die Cut paper
When my daughter went to a farm for the first time in her life, she touched "fake" sheep but she couldn't touch any "real" sheep and other animals.
3 weeks later we went to the zoo. At first she seemed to be scared, but finally she touched a goat!
