The above Chinese New Year card was sent to me by my friend Mel after the event. I just love it because it is mostly red, my favorite colour at the moment.
We booked one meeting room to use for the day. We spread out the delicious homemade lunch and grape juice bubbly on the table, but I told them I needed to take some photos before they can start. In the photo from the left is Wan, Mel and Nan. Having them at work made my day very enjoyable.Thanks girls for the delicious food and the effort that you put into making it.
I got Mel for my Ching Chingle. Mel is a fountain pen collector and I know she has been wanting a pen roll to keep her pens together. I made her this roll from re-purposed jeans. It was quite fun and easy to make.
I got this cute Oriental print to use for the lining and pockets. I like it so much that I made one for myself too. HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR everyone, itcan't be hard to be happy even though you are not Chinese...! If you are interested in reading about the Chinese Lunar Year you can go here.
