You’ve probably been wondering what happened with the new writer applications. It was really tough to decide who to pick, but I can now reveal the new SCK team!
Natasja will be writing a few posts a month about crafts, stationery and cute shops with her first posts coming up this week.
Natasja’s love for kawaii things was sparked by Sanrio characters and Candy Candy in her youth. From 2003 she started blogging about her personal life, filled with cute pixel art at the time. Natasja lives in the Netherlands with her husband & poofy cat and works as a freelance web designer. She likes to spend her free time browsing for cute stuff, blogging and reading. But on rare occasions ;) you can find her away from the computer, making kawaii jewellery or cooking up something cute.
MissMuffcake will be our first US writer and will be posting a few times a month about the darker side of kawaii.
Kendy (AKA MissMuffcake) lives in California with her boyfriend Matt and rescue kitten Mady. In her spare time she likes eating/creating vegan food, petting kittens, collecting cute toys, wandering cemeteries, making zines and doing yoga.
And finally, my sister Nicolette has been writing guest posts and helping out with the SCK Tumblr for a while so I’ve made it official. She’ll be posting occasionally about events and shops.
Nicolette is the sister of Bunny-san and also totally obsessed with everything kawaii. She lives in London with two adorable fluffy chinchillas called Maple & Truffles and wishes there were more kawaii chinchilla characters. Anything with a cute face is bound to make her squee, particularly bunnies, kitties and pandas. Nicolette earns money to buy toys for her chinnies and cute stuff for herself by working as a Dispensing Optician. She enjoys playing her 3DS XL, crafting with felt, photography and eating cake and is proud to be the founding member of the ‘Bring Back Le Bun!’ campaign. There are no other members at present.
I hope you enjoy reading their posts! Our cute avatars are by Chanrio.

I’d also give a big thank you to the other guest writers, who put together some awesome posts: Roo, Pauleen Potter, Lulu and Becky Helms. Thank you all!
Marceline is the co-founder and editor of Super Cute Kawaii and author of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii. She also designs cute character goods as Asking For Trouble. She lives by the seaside in Scotland in a house full of kawaii and especially loves bunnies, space and food with faces.
