Surprise in the mail

What a surprise to come home and find this little package at my front door this morning.

The kindly folks at Natureshop have got together with Icebreaker to give away a merino top to selected customers. Aren't I lucky to score one?!

It appears that Icebreaker are one of those forward thinking companies for the future - they use only natural materials and owners of their product can trace the raw material right back to the farm from which the wool came. Awesome stuff. You should buy some. I will be saving my pennies to purchase some for the kidlets. And maybe even another for me!

Great packaging too.

Tweeted here too.

Autumn in Melbourne - raindrops on the trees at kinder drop off this morning.
Hi there all...readers, fellow bloggers, friends, crafters. I've been very absent from my blog and the blog world in general. In fact I've even a bit absent from the creative world. I've had a lot of stuff going on. Stuff I probably don't want to talk about here. Stuff you probably don't need to hear about in fact.
But behind the scenes I'm chipping away at making some big changes, to Mainichi and life in general. Good changes, good things, to contrast all the bad of late.
I'm enjoying watching my two beautiful children grow. I'm enjoying the friends who are supporting me. I'm looking forward to the new doors about to open. I'll keep you posted. No pun intended. xx

Hello Again Sale

Umi brooch by Mainichi reduced to a measly $14....yes that's right....$14
Dearest followers, readers, lurkers and fellow bloggers and crafters

You may (or may not) have noticed my absence from this space for quite a while.  I'm just posting to let you all know that you have not been forgotten and thank you for your patience and for checking in on me now and then (well I hope you do!).  There has been a whole load o' stuff happening in my life over the Christmas break and my attention has been on other more important things than cyberspace.

I'm also letting you know that I'll be checking out of my blog for a while, at least until my life has regained a sort of balance. I shall still let you all know about the news from the Mainichi front, from time to time.

Which brings me to the title of this post.... drumroll....TA DA.....It's time for a **SALE** in my Etsy shop.  Why now? Well now seems as good a time as any - new year and all that.

So if you've got some generous Christmas cash gifts to spend on yourself pop on in and take a look because there is a 30% discount on everything in the shop - simply enter the coupon code "MADJANUARY" on checkout and the discount will be deducted.

And you never know I might even throw a few more sale items in the shop, at bargain basement keep checking! And I'll keep adding as I get the opportunity.

Happy new year and I wish everyone (including me) a much brighter 2012.

Recycled Aussies

Presenting a new addition to the Mainichi range, these gorgeous handmade recycled Aussie bush timber beads that I source from Western Australia have been carefully selected for their shape and strung onto a length of my handmade rope. I've got a bunch of different coloured thread from which to make this rope, so if this piece looks like something you'd like in your Christmas stocking give me a hoi!
