oh yes, that would be celebrations starting to welcome in a new year (thank god!) and a new decade. In 1989 I was about to finish school and embark on adulthood, 1999 I was about to embark on married life, 2009 I am about to embark on ....who knows but hope it is something equally life changing and exciting.. Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all will understand and grant me some xmas and new decade forgiveness in my blogging slacker-ness as the electronic gods were against me for the month of December as not only did my computer pass on but also my darling mimoo decided to mash my digital camera in a tub of playdoh whilst the lens was open and then decided she would be busted with it like that so closed the lens and hid it, with said playdoh drying and make the lens unopenable...the mind of a 2 year old is more sinister than I imagined, THEN my mobile phone decided to pack up...heavens.

As you know, my love of cute stuff from Japan knows no boundaries so yet again I did a little late night online shopping over at World of Kawaii. With christmas soon to be upon us I bought some little things for my nieces who are stationary and babushka doll crazy. How cute is the little babushka doll key cover??? Have been to Japan just this April I knew the prices roughly of many of the items and unlike alot of japanese things on etsy they are really reasonably priced!!! so check it out

It is funny how manic and exhausting some markets can be but then you realise they go for half a day!! Mathilda's market was once again a successful day for mimoo and it far surpassed my expectations sales wise but as the crowd was a large number I did not get to chat to many customers as it was so frenzied. I thought my table at one stage was going to topple over!! I only got a quick crowd shot because as you can see I was blocked in by market goers. I was glad in the end to have an early set up time as it meant I could get around and say hello to a few friends and meet a few bloggers I follow, which is always great!

I heard a knock at the door this morning and it was the lovely elderly man who lives next door to us presenting me with these!!! How great is that....they are from his garden and it just goes to show that one random act of kindness can really make someones day or even week...I hope to do that to someone someday:-))

The lovely Jacqui over at Meeabee recently emailed mimoo HQ asking if we would like anything as she was going into town on her own to visit some craft stores. As a fellow mum I appreciate this so much as I know how little time Jacqui gets to herself and for her to think of others on her 'off' time is a reflection of what a nice person she is. plus she has got some really cute kids to boot!

I remember when I was little that sometimes my mum would just look at me and know that I had done something wrong and I used think 'how did she know that just be looking at me?' well now I am that mum and when I am approached with the above pose I know something is up! something to do with the unrolling several toilet papers rolls......

I am tooting the mimoo HQ horn today as I have been working extremely hard on some new sets of jammies for the summer xmas markets. I dont really list that many jammies online as I find they sell best at markets but I will be listing more on my madeit.com.au shop very soon.

Check out these 2 lovely features on my friend Jacqui's Mee a Bee products and blog!!! As you might remember on my recent visit to Japan I met up with Jacqui as she kindly offered to show me around some of Osaka's fabric places. We had a great time (no way long enough) but as my brother lives there I hope it will not be the last time we meet, although she may be too busy for me on my next running her Mee a Bee empire!!

my friend Jo over at Love Stamp has just launched her own website and it currently giving 10% off all new orders till the end of October so skip over and check out her fab new site here.
Well check out the recently started Madeit.com.au blog. Every day they will be posting gift guides for Xmas shopping for others (or yourself!!!) so check it out and also remember to fill in the survey and possibly commit to buying that number of handmade xmas presents this year! The last few years I have tried to buy all hand made gifts for my family but as I have all brothers they are a little harder to buy for in the craft world. check out the blog here.

Yes, you guessed it- smoking! I always thought I looked like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's but then I realised I didn't and I would end up like the below..... I smoked for almost 15 glorious years and god how I miss it. I so so loved it and I was very good at it too, if you have never smoked you will never fully understand why it is so hard to kick the habit once and for all.
