Gung Hai Fat Choi! Hope you all have a wonderful lunar new year and great things come to everyone during the year of the dragon! Honey is year of the dragon so this is pretty cool! So I needed some cheap decorations for Chinese New Year so I decided to look up some crafts to make out of red envelope packets. I am kinda like a Chinese New Year procrastinator so of course I didn’t score free red envelopes from the bank (yes, banks located around asian populations hand them out for free). I went to three banks on Saturday and all three of them had the same response when I asked for red envelopes, “Oh, we ran out of them a long time ago!” Bummer! But luckily my parents have lots of them and I found a good way to use up the ones with outdated designs! Here’s to my first time making Red Envelope lanterns and fans…
What do you guys think? I just wanted something festive for Kiggster to remember from her culture and traditions. Honey told me that when she got up this morning, she was very fascinated with the lanterns hanging up from the ceiling by the doorway. I am so glad she likes them, makes the effort worth it!
Here’s Kiggster at Gong-Gong and Po-Po’s house for Chinese New Year tonight! She’s wearing her cute little chinese outfit that Yee-Yee bought her when she was just born. It fits like a glove now!
Of course, I need to layer it like crazy for our San Francisco weather! She has a short sleeve onesie, long sleeve shirt, and pants underneath the whole chinese outfit!
