I wish you all a happy new year in 2018!
The world is still in chaos – but let’s carry on our own creative year.

The Dog is the animal of the year in the Eastern zodiac – then I found that I have very few dog stamps.  Well, this one suits to the new year greetings the best…

新年おめでとうございます。
世界は今年も混沌としていますが、横目で見ながらも創造的な2018年を過ごしたいと思います。

さて、戌年。どれくらいあったかなぁ、、とストックを見返して、犬の切手はほんとうに数が少ないことを発見。これがいちばん、その中ではお正月らしいかも、と。

    I was born in the year of the dog, so this stamp suits me.
    Do you pick a theme each year, or month, or do you change it. Just curious.

      Hi Anthony – all the best for your year! I pick up Eastern Zodiac animal of each year, some time carry on for a while when I have many stamps of the animal. Otherwise, I pick up theme almost random, then continue it sometime.
