Handmade 2011 Chinese New Year Fun!

Chinese New Year is tomorrow!  Are you ready to party?

It’s the year of the rabbit!

A little bit about Chinese New Year: “Chinese months are reckoned by the lunar calendar, with each month beginning on the darkest day. New Year festivities traditionally start on the first day of the month and continue until the fifteenth, when the moon is brightest. In China, people may take weeks of holiday from work to prepare for and celebrate the New Year.” – Infoplease.com

I hope you enjoy these wonderful “Handmade Chinese New Year” finds by talented Etsy artist!

The super cute home page print is a Happy New Year’s Rabbit Card by beauideal.
