Description:

I have SO many kawaii memo pads in my collection.. and they seldom get used save for sending as extras in swaps :/

Why not use some "memo sheets" as letter paper? They are typically a bout 4x6 inches in size.

You will write a short letter to your 2 partners on kawaii stationery. Must be NAME BRAND. No dollar store/generic kawaii.

Acceptable brands are those like Sanrio, San-X, Kamio etc...

Write your letter on kawaii memo sheets** THAT MEANS:

  • 2 sheets matching kawaii memo pad paper [~4x6"] [or more if you want!]

  • ANY sort of envie you like! [can be plain, kawaii, handmade paper envie, does NOT matter*]

[2 memo sheets + an envie]

  • pick 3 of the below prompts, and the rest of the letter is free-themed

  • 2 partners!!!

THIS WEEK'S PROMPTS:

  • how was your Easter [if you celebrate] / how was your weekend?

  • what kind of package swaps would you like to participate in?

  • what's your favorite dessert dish to make?

  • do you decorate your workspace? how?

  • what's one good habit that you have cultivated this week?

Lastly, include some kawaii goodies inside! Memos, sticker flakes.. a little surprise! ^^

You should have a 4.95+ rating and no unresolved 1s or 3s to join!

I'm not really experienced with "Kawaii". I have been purchasing Japanese stationary at a little local shop by my house. They are 5.5 7.5 sheets with matching envies. They have cute little animals on them. Is this what is meant by "Kawaii" stationary? Thank you.

@Fabriqueen so authentic kawaii is brands like San-X, Kamio, etc and are manufactured in Japan. Some example characters are Rilakkuma, Sumikkogurashi, Mochi Panda, Kitsuita Nyanko etc. Kawaii stationery features characters like these.

@christy this might become even more confusing as places like Michaels is bring out basically American Kawaii but they are going into more of a planner direction. They are doing it in collaboration with creators and all of it is very Kawaii. So the lines might blur.

One exception to what is not Kawaii is the stationery from Daiso. I think its just because it is dollar store. Because it is cute and does come from Japan. Heh.

Though, myself, I don't mind non genuine Kawaii sent to me. To me if it adorably cute and resembles the original Kawaii stationery then it is close enough! Though others might not agree.

Thanks Selene! @SeleneW that is very true. Daiso is not really considered true kawaii. And there are "generic kawaii" stationery types popping up.
