I heart you Scarlettgift

I recently purchased a wee something to brighten up my workspace. I was browsing through Felt when I came across Scarlettgift. Two talented ladies from Hamilton who are making some lovely pieces to brighten up any space - home, work or a lovely gift for a lovely friend.

Check out some of their scrummy offerings in their Felt store (this is just a selection - there are many many more):

I am very excited as today some of my Songbird Goodies arrived at a lovely, stylish boutique in Wellington. Emma.

The store is home to the designs of Emma Wallace and boy are they amazing designs. My bank account is very lucky that this store is in Wellington....

I am so pleased to stock some things in Emma - a little something to accessorise your Emma outfit with. Emma is also stocking a range of my cards. YAY.

Time really flies

So much has happened since I last posted. 

Our world changed on February 22nd, when a terrible quake hit Christchurch with devastating consequences.

I was worried for a number of people, who I don't know well, or haven't known for long, but who I think of as friends, and who were stuck in the middle of all of that..
< Some people were not that lucky. My thoughts remain with their families and friends.

In the wake of the first quake in September 2010, I worked with a number of others to fundraise to provide some relief for those people hit the worst. It was a significant amount of work, but with amazing results ($4420 raised over 6 weeks). This time I was not in a position to be able to give as much time, but I decided I could do my bit by donating the proceeds of my store sales.

This combined with a special fundraising stall at my work (just a side note - my workplace raised $36,000 through all of our fundraising activities on March 4th), Songbird managed to raise a total of $455.50, which I was proud to donate today to the Red Cross.

With the payment goes my best wishes and hope that it brings someone in Christchurch some relief.

Note: My thoughts are also with the people of Japan, and their families who are all over the world. It is a sad and tragic event that has happened there.

Note 2: Feltaid is back open and running again with all proceeds going towards Christchurch Earthquake Relief. There are some lovely items in the store - go there NOW!
