One of the gifts my boyfriend spoiled me with this holiday was a print of Moonbeams and Dandelions by Sharodactyl. It is the type of art I love – cute and creepy. I love the skull puffs and wish to wish upon them!
The print came nicely wrapped and a patch and button of the print was even included! Sharodactyl has plenty of cute prints, stickers and more in her Etsy shop for those looking to add to their art collection.

Not got a diary yet? No problem – there are still lots of cute ones available, and some are on sale now too.
Everyone loves Rilakkuma and Tofu Cute have some sweet 2015 diaries with food themes and lots of useful pages for dates, notes and addresses.
Paperchase have tons of cute diaries, including lockable ones. I like the embroidered ones best, especially this lion in a balloon. Raar!
Blythe fans will love these spiral-bound planners in four pretty designs, available from Blippo for just £3 each.
ShopKawaii have a good range of San-X character diaries, including my new faves Sumikko Gurashi.
And my favourite, a really fun idea from MochiThings – a set of 12 planners! Each month is a separate notebook with a page a day so you only need to carry around one small diary instead of a big heavy one. This would be great for a journal too, plus there’s 25% off just now!

I got quite a few cute things for Christmas this year – the very cutest being a little Loppy plush with a santa hat! My sister got him for me at Hyper Japan and he’s so soft.
There’s a whole range of Christmas-themed Loppys and they’re all too cute! Otakumode still have some in stock if you fancy one, or two, yourself.
She also got me a vitamin pen, which is too cute to use! Get one from Artbox for just 80p.
Even my Secret Santa gift from work was cute – a huggable panda that you put in the microwave to heat up.
Most excitingly, the postman brought me a surprise package on New Year’s Eve, that turned out to be a delightfully festive mini Knoshy hamper from no less than Pusheen The Cat! Truly I am a lucky bunny.
I hope you all had a super cute Christmas too – did you get anything cute from Santa?

1. I VOTED! (please do actually vote – we want your votes!)
2. What was your favourite kawaii item you bought or were gifted in 2014?
We’ll pick two winners and send them a prize pack including SCK swag and something cute from the sales. UPDATE: One prize pack includes a big 16cm pink Alpacasso plush and the other includes a small Alpacasso keyring plush.

Have you left everything too late, but still want to have a cute Christmas? Don’t worry, I’ve dug up some kawaii gift wrapping, cards and decorations, and almost all are free!
HappyThought always have something good for Christmas and this kittens in socks garland is super cute! It’s free to download in return for your email address.
Need some gift tags? Print out these cuties by Little Beehive on to card or sticker paper and you’re done.
Fantastic Toys have some of the most amazing papercraft printables I’ve ever seen. I love these snowman treat boxes – it’s only $5 for all three, and filled with sweets they’d make a great last minute gift.
San-X have hundreds of free printables, wallpapers and more, some with a festive feel. These Kutusita Nyanko designs (scroll almost to the bottom of the page) are sweet and can be printed as postcards or tags.
And we’ve made some too! These alpacas are by Natasja and can be printed as cards or tags. Download for free from Kao-ani.
I’ve got a new free printable garland at Asking For Trouble featuring a snow bunny and bear, snowman and Christmas tree.
Get your printer fired up and let us know if you make any of these.

We’re big fans of Paper Glitter‘s printables, and now they’ve branched out into rubber stamps too! I love stamps for making mail cute and also saving me time when making cards or wrapping gifts. Most of the stamps can be personalised with your name, address, business or other text, and there are loads of cute designs to choose from.

Even though we all have calendars on our phones and computers, I like to have a cute calendar around to keep track of birthdays and other events (and what day it even is, since I work from home!). Here are my favourites for 2015.
I love Pom Pom Purin and all his friends. This wall calendar from Japan in a Box is full of adorable seasonal illustrations with loads of room for your notes.
The tiny Aranzi Aronzo store is a must visit if you’re ever in Tokyo and I always spend a fortune. Their online site is a bit clunky but they do ship worldwide. This year’s desk calendar features all the characters made from felt – so sweet.
Tofu Cute have some Rilakkuma desk calendars that are really colourful and come in three yummy flavours – chocolate cookie, gummi drop and fruits candy.
I bought Panda-san one of these My Zoetrope calendars last year and the 2015 version is just as cute, full of all-new animal illustrations.
And finally, Pusheen is so popular these days that her wall calendar is going for crazy prices, but Amazon have these cool poster calendars that would really cute up your workspace, and come with stickers too.

Today I’d like to introduce you to some cute and easy to make bookmarks. These are great to have at hand if you often find yourself submerged in a book or magazine.
This cute magnetic dog bookmark is one of the many amazing free printables at Sanpo Doh. You can use Google Translate to read the instructions or simply download the PDF template by looking for the ‘Cloudapp’ link. And if you are more of a cat person, then these feline bookmarks might be just the thing for you.
I think that Mollie from Wild Olive originally came up with the idea of using magnetic tape for bookmarks. She has posted several kawaii designs for you to print, such as a sweet rainbow clip.
Food and books aren’t usually a happy combination, but this felt ice-cream bookmark is a great exception. Pick your favorite flavors and get creative ^_^
This paper fox from Lonnies will hold on to your favorite page and it’s quite simple to make!
Not only are these DIY felt bow bookmarks inexpensive to make, they would also make a lovely gift for befriended bookworms.

I feel like we’re maybe featuring a little bit too much Christmas crochet this year, but I have share one more. Snacksies Handicraft Corner sell both finished amigurumi and PDF patterns and their Christmas collection is totally adorable! Since they’re made to order, it’s too late to buy finished toys for this Christmas, but crocheters might have time to make one, or at least get a headstart on next year. And if anyone wants to make me a gingerbread man, that would be great, thanks.
