Happy New Year! It’s still hard to believe 2013 is gone and it’s 2014 now, but that’s how it is sometimes. To help remind you of what year it is, here’s a cute calendar from Hello, Cuteness, showing 2014 at a glance.

Moshi Moshi Kawaii: Where is Strawberry Mochi?     Moshi Moshi Kawaii: Where is Strawberry Princess Mochi?

Earlier this summer, Walker Books released two illustrated books in a new “Moshi Moshi Kawaii” series, in which you search for the bunny-pill characters, kind of like the Where’s Waldo? books. However, these characters aren’t new; they are originally from Japanese company Mindwave and were released in 2002 as “Usa Colle.” The company sold a limited selection of Usa Colle stationery goods and toys at the time, though they’re pretty hard to find these days.

The old site at UsaColle.com is a bit dated now and is mostly in Japanese, but it has some neat things to check out. There are images of all the original characters, short Flash animations to watch, pretty desktop wallpapers and printables to download, and even a cute little game to play.

I’m cleaning up my Japanese stationery collection a bit, so I decided to sell some of it on an eCrater shop. So far, I have stickers, letter sets, memo pads, a few toys, and other cute things. Some are new, some are slightly used, but they’re all in good condition and listed for fair prices.

I hope you’ll stop by. :)

Cupcake Shoppe Stationery Chronicle Books just released a cute stationery set called Cupcake Shoppe, with a bakery full of cupcakes wearing mustaches. I’m not sure why cupcakes would have mustaches, but they are cute and match the baker who made them.

You can see more of the designer Blanca Gòmez’s work at her web site Cosas Mínimas.

Will's Burger Postcard (by All Things Kawaii)

I was browsing the postcards at Daiso earlier today, and couldn’t pass this one up. Illustrated food, and a “huge” cheeseburger, no less!

I have an extra one to give away to one lucky commenter. Leave a comment here before noon PST Sunday (12/20), and I’ll pick a random winner to send it to. :)

New San-X Character: Iiwaken San-X has introduced a new character called Iiwaken, a cute little dog who likes to draw with crayons, though it looks like he’s doing homework with them!

You can view some of the upcoming stationery items with Iiwaken on the San-X character page, and there’s also a printable calendar and desktop wallpaper on their goodies page.

A Letterpres Halloween

A few more Halloween goodies today, with letterpress cards on the Hello Lucky site. The design in the middle is by Hello Lucky, with a cute pattern of skulls; the designs on the left and right are by Lab Partners, and feel like they’re straight from vintage children’s books. Check out the site for more cards and designs.
