Year of Dogs.

Happy New Year greeting from Maya and Kay. Wishing everyone a prosperous year ahead 🤣

2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac.

“People born in the Year of the dog are said to be faithful and loving but need guidance and protection. A man born in the Year of dog should marry a strong-willed woman who can give him the push he needs to achieve success. Dogs are most compatible with Rabbits, Tigers, and Horses but are are incompatible with Dragons and Roosters.” by an article.

Mine is Tiger 🐯 and my year 1986’s Tigers are said “super strong-minded”. I heard some people don’t want a baby girl became of this. Maybe only my husband understand it. Hes is the year of mouse, whatever he does , it’s very easy for tiger to eat a little mouse . This Tiger comes every 36 years, therefore next is people born in 2022.


Greeting card for 2017

Japan has a practice sending New Year greeting card. My husband and I can buy at store or make it ourselves or order on the Internet 😘 We’ve started to order it on the Internet since last year. This time I’m having a lot of spare time so started early. 

This year we welcomed my son, so I decided to make it with a photo of him. There’re a lot of templates. I chose three and made samples. I asked my husband which one he likes and he seemed like the middle one which has green background. Our first greeting card with our son’s photo. There’re two problems. We can’t write a message because of the dark green background 😥 There’s ritual that people in mourning don’t send and receive New Year greeting card, so they send mourning greeting card before New Year telling people and I’d received it after making our New Year greeting card from my friend 😲 I’m a little shocked 😵
