Sketchbook morning with my daughter

I went out with my 5 years old daughter when her school had no school day.

After we looked around Christmas decorations in our local department store, we sat down in the cafe with cappuccino, babyccino, and small cake to share.

We enjoyed drawing on our sketchbook for a while. It was fun!

Bedtime story

I know it’s too late to say Happy New Year but this is my first post in 2019. I drew this in my sketchbook with colour pencils, after my children and my husband went to bed. It’s midnight and snowing outside. Probably I should go to bed soon!

気がつけば2月ですが、今年最初の投稿です。いつものようにスケッチブックに、家族が寝静まった後にこっそり描きました。もう夜中の12時、外は深々と雪が降っています。明日は忙しい金曜日。子供達が5時半にベッドに潜り込んでくるので、私ももうすぐ寝たほうが良さそうです。

Christmas..!

For this Christmas, I printed 80 Christmas cards.

It was a lovely Christmas with our British family in Hertford. I have grown up in Japan and I have never experienced a Christmas like here this… especially for my daughters I can imagine how magical and dreamy event it is. So I understand why many adults get excited for Christmas like children.

My 2 & 4 years old realised that elf was not in our flat after Christmas. They were talking to him almost every day. I’m sure he will come back next year.

I am so glad that many people came to my workshop. Big hands, small hands… many hands tried to make origami Santa, Christmas tree and heart… and the people looked very satisfied with their results!

クリスマス折り紙ワークショップは無事に終了しました。子供から大人まで沢山の人が、挑戦して下さってとても嬉しかったです。
