One of my favourite ones in 2013 ‧2013年裡, 我最喜愛的其中一個

自我做過此手縫加機縫拼布萬用儲物籃後, 我便愛上拼布及拼布花, 老公還說此籃充滿Cath Kidston 風, 我更特別愛此籃, 不過, 做此籃真費時及花功夫!

Since I made this handmade -machinemade-patchwork basket, I have been loving patchworking and making patchwork flowers. After my husband said that it looked like Cath Kidston stuff, I love this basket more.  But it was really time-consuming and labour-intensive to do so.

Craftsy Tour: mt tape expo in Japan. 日本mt紙膠帶 博覽會

投影片1

自六月以來都很忙,巳兩個月沒有更新部落格了! 其實心裡一直掛念着更新部落格的事, 所以都有以相片紀錄了這兩個月裡一切關於手工藝的事兒及作品。
I have been extremely busy since this June, so I didn’t update this blog!~!! In fact, I have been thinking of this blog, therefore, I have been taking the photos of my works and crafty events.

今次因為在栗島的mt tape 博覽會將於10月5日再舉行,所以雖然仍忙着另外一項 “大工程” , 我仍然希望能在這一兩天內報告我於8月時參觀此博覽會的況,(這是我ニ次看mt tape 展覽, 上次在泰國看的。) 藉此可以為那些對mt tape 有興趣及即將到四國的朋友作為參考。(我也是從另外的一位愛mt tape 的朋友得知此展覽的, 原以為看過相片後會減低我參觀時的趣味感,但卻完全不是呢! 所以有興趣的朋友,不妨去看看及參與其中的活動。)
The mt tape expo will be held again on Awashima Island on 5th Oct, so I hope I am able to report what I experienced there this August these days even though I am still working on a ‘big project’ now. ( It was the second time I participated in such expo, last time was in Thailand.) As such, it works as reference for those who are interested in mt tapes and will visit Shikoku. ( This expo was also introduced by another mt tape lover . I supposed that my pleasure for the expo would be lessened by viewing the photos in advance, but it was not the case. Therefore, I would like to highly recommend those in who are interested, to visit and participate the events held by the expo . )

栗島位於日本四國香川縣附近離岸的一個小島, 從香川縣須田碼頭到栗島, 船程約需半小時。未到栗島,在須田碼頭的堤壩及到栗島的小船上,巳可看見色彩奪目的mt tape (紙膠帶), 心情頓感興奮!
Awashima Island is located off the coast of Kagawa ken , Shikoku, Japan , it takes around half an hour from Suda Port,Kagawa Ken to Awashiwa Island. Before arriving at the Island, beautifully decorated boat and dam with the mt tapes at Suda Port can be seen. It was really exciting!!!

下船後, 跟着島上的指示, 向着山崗方向走, 很快便到達圖1的栗島海洋紀念館, 看到館入口處轉右,沿着圖2的小徑再向前走, 便可達位處小山崗頂的展覽場所。(圖3) 由碼頭步行至展場才不用5分鐘。

After getting off the boat, follow the indicators and head to the hillside, you can get to the Awashima Island Ocean Memorial (photo.1) soon. Turn right at the entrance of the Center, walk along the alley shown in photo.2, you will arrive at the venue at the small hill. It takes less than 5 mins from pier to the venue.

展場原為一所廢置的小學, 此為其一展區—水族館。

The venue was transformed from a deserted secondary school. It is one of the exhibition areas — Aquarium.

A shopping area transformed from canteen. The stuff shown in the lower photo. were shopping baskets decorated with mt tapes.

由食堂變身而成的購物區。下圖展示的是由紙膠帶裝飾而成的購物籃。

大家也很專注地選購。下圖是每次博覽會一定出現的扭蛋機。扭蛋內的紙膠帶均以低廉價錢發售,當然不可自選款式啦!

All people concentrated in choosing their goodies. The machines shown in the lower photo were lucky draw machines seen in every expo. Those mt tapes shown in the eggs were sold at a discount. Surely, you couldn’t choose the patterns.

The Awashima island edition was encircled in red in upper photo.

Once you purchased their products, you could get any beautiful catalogues and mt tapes decorated fans at cashiers as many as you could.
只要惠顧任何産品,你便可隨意在收銀處取美麗的貨品目錄及用紙膠帶裝飾的手搖扇。

Because of the infrequent sailing schedule, there were two areas we would leave our footprints —one was the café. The choices of food and drinks were limited and their taste was reasonable.

因為船的班次太疏,展場中有兩個地方,一定會令我們留下腳毛—其一是紙膠帶食堂。食物及飲品的選擇有限,味道是還可以的。

另一個必到之處是上图的試玩區。足有超過10桶的紙膠帶,每桶約值市價幾千塊,任你玩,任你用,主辦商真大方!

Another must-go area was trial area. Over ten buckets of mt tape which worth several hundred US dollars were available for trial. How generous the company was!!!!

Music Room. Actually, the roof of the school was also decorated with mt tapes, but it was sooo hot (41 degrees Celcius)that I was not interested in taking photos there.

音樂室。其實,學校的天台也有装飾,但天氣實在太熱(攝氏41度) ,所以我並沒有到那裡拍照。

跟據網站公告,紙膠帶展覽將在香港舉行,那時候,我一定購入香港特別版。可能,我們會相遇呢!

According to the Official website, mt tapes pop-up expo will be held in Hong Kong in Oct to early Nov. At that time, I will buy the Hong Kong Limited edition and we may meet over there if you come to Hong Kong during that period…

Recommendable Websites and Blogs for Cardmaking 推薦造卡網站及部落格

Recently , some crafty friends asked me if there are any recommendable websites or blogs for cardmaking.  Sure, I have been teaching myself making cards by viewing blogs and websites , as well

as taking online classes.  But I think different people have different tastes on aesthetics.  I hope the ones

recommended are what you like as well.

最近一些手作同好要求我推薦一些造卡的網站及部落格。當然,我是有的因為我是一直利用參看網站、部落格,以及上綱上課自學造卡的。但每個人的審美眼光都有不同,希望你也喜歡以下網站:

http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/

http://www.card-making-magic.com/kineticcards.html

http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/

http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/

http://limedoodledesign.com/2013/07/bee-strong/

As for me, the lime doodle and the online card classes are the most I like.

對於我来説,lime doodle 和 online card classes 是我最喜歡的。

In these websites and blogs , you can also get to know the terms used in cardmaking field that you can use these terms and search the related tutorial videos on Youtube.

從這些網站及部落格中,你還可以認識及利用那些造卡專用詞於Youtube搜尋有關的教學短片呢!

Rest in Peace!安息!

We were very shocked when we heard this news.  It spent certain period of time

for us to accept it as a fact. Furthermore, we are more concerned about the bereaved.

Hope he can resume his daily life as early as possible!

 

當我倆得知此消息也很震驚。也花了不少時間才可接受此為事實。更重要的是,我倆均擔心那未亡人……

但願他早日重回日常軌道!!!!

Farewell! Good Luck!!! 再見! 祝您好運!

P1020235

It is inevitable to have negative feeling whenever there is separation.

As we get older, the frequency of separation in any form is getting more.

In Chinese, ‘再見’ means see you again literally.  If there is chance, we will meet each other.

Enjoy your journey!!!!

 

離別時, 總難免有負面感受……隨着年齡増長, 任何一種離別均會増多。

中文中的再見’ , 字面解作再次見面。有緣的話,我們一定會再重遇。

好好享受您的人生旅程!!!!

Thank you, Gentleman! 感謝您,紳士!

Mas Card Music

This one is definitely a gentleman, in terms of his character and his hobbies.  However, he also has an aspect of energetics. By viewing this thank you card, it is easy for you to guess what his hobbies are. 

以性格及嗜好而論,他絕對是紳士。但他也有活力充沛的一面。從此感謝咭的咭面,你應已猜到他的愛好吧。
