Nengajo party

Today was the Creative Perspectives get -together. We spent our afternoon making nengajo, Japanese holiday cards.

Jo is carving her first-ever stamp. She's going to use it on the beautiful marbled paper she made today.

Bob spent most of the day sketching monkeys. His final product is a print block with a lot of character.

Greg brought lots of art toys and Jo took charge of dinner--a completely scrumptious polenta pizza! Tod was the kanji-master (of course) and I sketched variations on a theme until I got the design I wanted. If I have your address, you'll get a copy. If not, send me your address.

Cool! Helen likes Bob's monkey idea. Today is our card party. I get the feeling there will be a lot of glitter, giggling and cookies compared to the classy print blocks and polenta at your party! I'll try to take photos.

I am so proud! I showed my students my finished nengajo with the stamps on them, and they could read it without me telling them what it was! Thanks Todd for kanji, and both of you for all the materials. Now all i have to do is write on them and p-p-p-post them (yeow, that means going to the dreaded post office!)....

The title is COOL, You enojoy making NENGAJYOU. My image is -- we have to make NENGAJOU! IN NIKKO there is a famous three monkeys' carving. do you kno it--see no evil, hear no evil, nor speak any evil.

Did you miss me???

I am so sorry to have missed all the fun yesterday.. but I was busy with the JLPT.. I think I did quite well as it was easier than I thought it would be..

Yes, we did miss you! And well done on the test! If you thought it was easyish, then you must have been well prepared!
