BLUE & WHITE SEES RED
THE NEW CALENDARS FOR 2012 ARE HERE!
For the first time in Blue & White’s 25 years of creating charming and original handmade calendars, we have brought red to the party. Red dispels the gloom and calmity of 2011. Red is a perfect partner for Blue & White. It brings joy and helps celebrate the sunrise and sundown of each day. The new promise in each square.
Otafuku, Japan’s beloved Goddess of Mirth, is the star performer of our 2012 calendar. Her images are taken from tenugui patterns, Otafuku artifacts, and whimsical drawings of Otafuku at play.
Many of the Otafuku artifacts are waiting for you at Blue & White. You can’t have too many chirpy quirky faces to see you through the day! She reassures you that things will be fine. And even if they aren’t, a good laugh helps dispel life’s choppy moments.
We have marked full moons and auspicious days to help everyone go for the lucky, but just to be sure, we have invited Miss Otafuku, the joy of Japan to be with us each month.
Her face brings smile and merry making to you from Blue & White as you hang the calendar in your kitchen, in your study or your bedroom. Otafuku will make you smile and feel the goodness of each day, each week, each month, or just cheer you up.
Change is another essential for making life better. We have changed the layout of our calendar from horizontal to vertical, hoping that it will make you think again and reconsider each day and the next.
The squares are generous as usual to fit in all your dates, birthdays, appointments and evening plans. Each day precious, each day a gift.
2012 is in fact the year of the dragon – an animal that brings energy and splash and auspicious times to life.
Together with Otafuku they make a perfect couple – joy and delight coupled with energy and good fortune, we wish you all of these in 2012.
