This time next week I will be is Osaka, Japan! How exciting as I cannot wait! One of my brothers lives there with his small family and he is getting married at Osaka Castle next Friday. The only sad part is that little mimoo is too little to go with us as it is a short trip of 5 days and I will be away over easter and I was planning to organise a little egg hunt for her. I will have to make it up to her by bringing back lots of cute Japanese fabric to make her some sweet outfits for winter. It will be very tough on me to go to these fabric and craft stores to find this fabric but I will have to struggle on just for her....

Take a look at this gorgeous kid clothing website called The Clothesline. They have been featured over at Handmade Kids blog which is a favourite of mine. See a snippet of the Q & A below, in which I wholeheartedly agree! (PS how cute are the bubble bags?)
We would really love to get the word out about handmade – not just our site but the whole notion of buying handmade. I think it would be great if every kid’s birthday party I go to this year has at least 2 handmade gift received (there’ll always be 1 if I’m there!) and perhaps a number 1 google listing when people search for unique children’s clothing!!!
I am very puzzled as I have been having trouble posting to my blog with Australian time and it seems I have finally corrected the problem but all my previous posts date has disappeared!!! arrggh very puzzling but I guess I will just have to live with it for now, so bare with me!!
Thanks Mee a Bee for the treasury pick! How fun are treasuries as I have never looked at the before. I will make sure to check them out more in the future for fun gift ideas.
The talented Rebecca over at Edward and Lilly is having a easter giveaway! I recently purchased a felt bird and the easter chick from etsy store for niece and sister in law and they are beautifully made and just a really sweet idea. so get in quick a post a comment to win!
Sorry everyone as I missed mimoo mantra monday as I was not feeling very mantra-ish yesterday. I was feeling a bit like the above photo , due to the below photo!!

Non paying customers that's what!!! I mean seriously, why would you purchase something off the internet and just not pay for it and then, even worse completely ignore emails sent to you from the person selling like they do not exist. grrrrrr.... I liken it to physically walking into a shop, and taking goods off a shelf and going to the checkout counter and just standing there and refusing to pay for them and ignoring the sales assistant. ha yes I am prone to drama from time to time. have a good weekend everyone as I am off to the beach. bliss.
I did a bit of a fabric cupboard clean out this week and I found these 'shorts'! I had a bit of a giggle as these were my first attempt at teaching myself to sew almost 18 months ago at making a pair of boardshorts for my nephew. Needless to say I decided to abandon ship and start with a smaller project and mimoo just grew from there.
