Every year I prepare half a dozen of Shodo-inspired calendars. This year every month got a seasonal Haiku
Every year I prepare small cards for friends, relatives and colleagues with the Zodiac animal for next year (Mouse)…
and every year I decorate gifts with a Kanji that describes the content…
And finally I send out a shikishi with the Year Animal.
