Shogatsu! Japanese New Year postcards

This is such a cute idea that we got from my daughters brownie book!

In Japan at new year, people send special postcards to their friends and family, to say thank you for their help in the past year.

It’s a really sweet way to say thank you to loved ones, and the kids had great fun making some for their grandparents.

  1. Oh, what a great idea. I was trying to think of a twist to the conventional Christmas thank you card for the kids this year, and this will be awesome. Thanks, LP! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and all the best in the New Year. You are one of my “treasures” discovered in 2012, and I’m looking forward to future posts and inspiration from you in 2013.

  2. Oh! that’s a good idea, saying Thank you for the help from last year, I should thank my parents for all their support of me being a stay-at-home, it hasn’t been easy but they have helped me so much by visiting us and spoiling Nathan 😉 I wish you and yours a Happy New Year 2013 and hope all your wishes come true! 🙂 take care xxx
