asking for trouble

Super Cute Kawaii is 10 Years Old!

The main reason you’re all finding out about my book now is because it’s Super Cute Kawaii’s 10 year anniversary and everyone agreed it was the ideal time to break the news.

SCK has grown so much since me and Claire came up with idea on our Thailand fun times adventure. I’m now the only editor and have 4 writers to help me out plus we get to collaborate with some of our dream brands, shops and characters.

If you don’t follow the blog or SCK’s social media, you should give it a go as I often spend more time there than on my own stuff. It’s a good time to jump in as we’re celebrating with lots of fun blasts from the past, interviews with the staff (here’s mine), exclusive discounts (some ending today!) and ten giveaways!

There’s also a free printable if you’d like my animal mascots in party hats. Make something with it and take a photo and you could win some super cute Pusheen prizes. I love these bookmarks that our craft writer Andi made.
