Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: Feb. 10, 2011


Hello, from all of us at Hatena. There were so many great "Noodle" Flipnotes posted this past week that we had a hard time to choose our favorites. We hope that you enjoy the Flipnotes we did choose, and please remember that if yours isn't featured here, it doesn't mean it's not good or that we don't like it.

We really do appreciate everyone posting Flipnotes about the weekly topic, and watch everything that is posted to the channel. Please be sure to check the Flipnotes that we didn't choose every week too, and if you think we might have missed a great one please let us know!

Valentine's day is just four days away, and to celebrate the holiday our new weekly topic is "Sweets". We realize that we've done two food related topics in a row, but hope that you still have the appetite for another one! Don't worry... next week we plan to get our minds out of the kitchen, and introduce something completely different.

Here is a photo of some sweets that we enjoyed recently in the Hatena offices to give you some inspiration for this week's topic. These are made from sliced apples and mini marshmallows.


Thanks for checking out the news and for all of your comments, feedback and support!
