mimoo hearts handmade

Sorry for the lack of posts this week as I have been beavering away for Mathilda's Market this weekend!

Speaking of Mathilda's, I received an email newsletter from the gang yesterday and they had an interview with the organiser of these markets and I really loved the answer she gave below. Check out the full interview over here.

"Why do you love handmade so much?
Nothing beats handmade. Handmade things tell a story that mass produced items just don’t. I love that people put their heart and soul into crafting a handmade item, and that it’s likely to be, if not completely unique, then certainly that little bit special. I also love the little imperfections you see in handmade things that remind you it didn’t come off an assembly line, but was made by a real life, flesh-and-blood person! Oh, and it’s so fun to watch the way people’s eyes light up when they receive something crafted by someone else. So many things to love!"

A random act of kindness

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:-))

Softies for Mirabel

This year mimoo HQ is participating in the Softies for Mirabel drive over at Meet me at Mikes blog here.

I am no expert softie maker but I would like to help out some organisations through the craft world and give back what mimoo HQ can as every little bit makes a difference.

mimoo hearts Japanese fabric

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!  

Now of course I jumped at the chance and Jacqui just sent me this package filled with goodies... I am so excited and I cannot decide which on is my favourite...which is yours? thanks Jacqui x

little mimoo is up to no good again...

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......

plus I just wanted to capture my newest little creations from my recent late night online shopping ! I think they turned out quite cute as I found this pattern at my mums' which was a pattern of shorts that she had made for me when I was this age using only 1/2 yard of fabric. I had a little chuckle when I saw the price of the pattern was 75c!!!

Tuesday toot toot

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 shop very soon. 

These are one of the new sets and some of my new range of boardies I will be selling this xmas so get in quick especially for the red stars as I am almost sold out!!! ps If anyone has some good tips on photographing products please let me know as alot of it is trail and error at the moment!

Well done and it proves that hard work does pay off!

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!!

The first feature was on one of my favourite blogs called Kenziepoo. I love all her features as she had a really great decorating eye and her little one is cute to boot so check it out here.
then the second lovely feature is over at Bloesem Kids in their special open house tour here.
I really like this blog too. 
Congrats Jacqui as your hard work is starting to pay off!

Are passionate about handmade gifts?

Well check out the recently started 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.

mimoo is back!

Apologies for my absence over the last week but have been having a few internet connection problems but hopefully they are cleared up now and I am back on board!
