Here is a little interview we had with Finders Keepers on their blog: Featured Designer: Dear Plastic

Thanks everyone for your lovely support.

We hope you have a wonderful christmas and wish you all the best for the new year.

Yesterday I received a lovely letter from Ebony. The beautiful hand made envelope and cut out shapes reminded me of my letter-writing days in Primary school.
I have kept all my letters and cards in shoe boxes, pushed to the back of cupboards. Some are more than 25years old.(...wowzers?!). Here are some oldies and newies(?) I am sorting through:

Little mini notes, open/close flaps, pop ups, art works, little presents all bundled up in a letter. There is something so special about opening these precious handmade gifts...I should get writing again.

p.s. Thanks Ebony, Emma, Miwa, Kao-chan, Junko chan, Simon for all your letters.

Sadhana Kichen

Our short return to Sydney last week was fun. We loved the warm sydney winter weather! We visited some nice places too. This was one of them, "Sadhana Kitchen" in Newtown.

They grow all their own vegetables and herbs, utilising every little bit of space and sunshine :)

MCA Zine Fair 2012

Yesterday was the MCA zine fair. We launched our new paper mobiles and art work and sold some old zine stock too. Thank you MCA for an amazing day. Thank you everyone for your lovely feedback, we really enjoyed the opportunity to chat with you :)

(We usually share a table with Hello Sandwich but she was busy book creating in Japan...but we were lucky to have a little bit of Ebony with us, her new "it's dots" wrapping packs!)

Wesley Hill Market

We went to Castlemain on the last weekend. There was a lovely local farmers market called "Wesley Hill Market". We got some organic vegetables and a good vegetarian curry for lunch from a nice Malaysian lady.
