Voting in the SCK Awards is now closed and we’ll be announcing the winners in the next week or two. Big thanks to everyone who voted! This was a trial to see whether you’d be interested in an annual kawaii awards and it looks like you are, so hopefully we will do this in a bigger and better fashion at the end of 2015.
In the meantime, we have two giveaway winners to choose from all our voters, who each win a prize pack containing some of the items above. I’m really going to miss that Alpcasso! It was really fun reading about all the cute things you bought and were gifted.
Anyway, the winners are…
Congratulations to Brandy Harvey and Su-chan ! Check your inboxes for how to claim your prize, or email email@example.com
Look out for more giveaways soon!

Even though we live in a digital age, I’m still fond of cute stationery. What better way to say hello to a friend than through a handwritten note or card? You can’t go wrong with these cute handmade cards from Two Black Cats Studio, which are illustrated and trimmed by Darla Okada. It might come to no surprise that Darla has got two black cats herself, but you will also find various other illustrated animals in her Etsy shop.
These Maneki Neko stickers might bring you a little bit of extra luck and they would also make a great (inexpensive) gift.
You can find a selection of arts prints in the shop as well, such as this ‘Gotcha!’ print. Find out at Two Black Cats Studio if you can get your paws on stationery or prints with your favourite pet!

Yozo Craft have added tons of cute new things lately so I had a rummage around and here are my favourites.

I’m a big fan of Society6 as it makes it possible to buy cute artwork by indie artists on everything from mugs and tote bags to duvet covers and clocks! Even better, they regularly offer free shipping worldwide so us folks outside the US can afford stuff too. Here’s a few of my current favourites.
Elebea has been posting some super cute illustrations lately – I love this happy landscape and it looks perfect on a pillow.
Julia Pott‘s artwork is always amazing but this is about as cute as it gets. I want to go on a midnight unicorn picnic!
Sailor Moon fans will love Pamela Barbieri‘s colourful take on the characters, but she also has some cute animal illustrations.
Elisa Sassi has some sweet tea party themed animal illustrations. It’s a squirrel in a top hat pouring tea – what’s not to like?
We’ve featured I Love Doodle here before and there’s lots of cute and clever images to choose from. Melting animals anyone?
Check out each artist’s page to see their designs on all products. Free shipping ends Sunday – no code required.

Last year I stumbled upon these Deco Latte sheets from Takara Tomy. At that time they were only available in Japan, but recently they’ve found their way overseas! These sheets are a great way to create latte art if you aren’t a skilled barista or haven’t got much time on your hands. Simply place a sheet on top of your hot drink, admire the decoration and wait for it to melt.
The Deco Latte sheets will come in a pack of ten and are released in three variations: Regular, Rilakkuma and Snoopy.
You can purchase a pack for about $5.40 at Strapya World. At the moment only the regular sheets are available, but I hope they’ll restock the Rilakkuma and Snoopy sheets soon.

What’s cuter than Pusheen? Pusheen as a unicorn! These new Pusheenicorn plush are so amazing with sparkly silver horn, rainbow mane and pastel tail. There are new mini pastel plush too and they’re all available from Hey Chickadee now.

I love all the felt animals at LittleVandFriends but especially this snow bunny. Each animal is handmade to order and can be customised, plus you get a sweet hoop to display them on and sometimes some extra trees and things too. There’s a huge range of animals in their Etsy shop, plus brooches, dolls and jewellery too.

A new feature! Our submissions form has been getting a workout lately, with loads of you writing in to tell us about your cute shops. With a huge list of my own cute finds to work through too, it can be difficult to get around to the submissions, so I’m going to feature a few at a time when they’ve piled up. Here’s some of my favourite plush from over the holidays.
There aren’t nearly enough kawaii robots out there, but luckily Robots and Monkeys have arrived with a new range of plush. Each one is different and sewn up by a qualified plush robot scientist! SCK readers can get 3€ off any order with the code THANKYOUROBOTS.
Smiling Bear have a new range of cute koala products, available in Australian airports and online. As well as being adorable, the toys have secret smile pockets and a portion of the profits goes towards helping real koalas.
We’ve featured My Dear Darling‘s cute penguins before and quite a few things been added since then. I especially love these mini tweedy plush.
And finally, Noodle doll Nelly is a new shop selling cute clouds and brooches. The mobiles and hanging ornaments are especially sweet.
Want to tell us about your cute shop? Head over to the Submissions page.

If you haven’t got a planner yet and are looking for a way to get organised in 2015, than we’ve got just the calendars for you!
At KF Studio you can find the cutest calendars and schedules, these are great if you want to write down appointments and tasks.
Canon provides a 2015 calendar that you can easily personalize. The big balloon is actually a photo frame, just open the calendar in Photoshop to place a picture behind it and print the end result (^_^).
The 2014 printable calendar from Design is Yay was so popular that Wita decided to release a 2015 version. I really like the simple and cute pictures.
If you are into paper crafting, you might enjoy this Ekopanda calendar. It consists of 4 triangles that you can rotate to display the two current months, pretty clever! Click the large pink PDF button to get started and follow the pictured instructions on the last page.
Dew Muffins also created some cute 3D paper calendars to craft, hop on the new year bus or make a colorful peacock.
