mimmis update

Forgive me blogging buddies for I have sinned, It's been ages since I last blogged.

Just reading my last post it was 23 days until I open mimmis and now its only 11 days ! eeks eeks and double eeks !

What is left to do? Only organise internet connection so I can Facebook all the exciting happenings, new stock and sewing updates and hopefully be really busy! Not too busy though, I would still like to take some time to smell the roses !

Speaking of Roses, I will be stocking lovely goodies from Miss Rose Sister Violet, oh yummo ! ( and some other special places that I totally cant decide on !) I have some super creative people helping me stock mimmis on commission as well and this excites the pants off me. I will let you know who they all are soon but you can definately keep up to date on this new journey of mine by following on facebook, It's awesome ! I have a mimmis page and a Miriam Bain page, so I'll see you over there really soon.

If you would like to come to mimmis opening on 11th November, Then please accept this as your prsonal invitation, I'd love for you to come and see what I'm doing, and have a gorgeous lunch across the road at Caffe Sorella.

The address is Victoria St, Forest Hill, QLD 4342 in your GPS . Theres only one street with shops so you cant miss it !

If you dont get to opening day but need a bubbachenille fix, I still have my things in Handmade Heaven, I am attending Gatton Christmas in the Country next Friday and Sat and will have my usual stall at The Handmade Expo Market on 20th Nov.

Busy busy busy and hopefully worth it, worth it, worth it !!

Crazy wind

Never been to a market where the wind was so crazy ! Gusting it was ! But all our wonderful customers still came out to get their fill of handmade lovliness and many of the stallholders had the best day ! Go figure. At least there were blue skies and no rain. Here are some pics from Kellie Christies viewpoint of the day. You gotta look back and chuckle !

Then on Sunday Handmade Heaven and I went to the Gold Coast Launch of Poppyseed Markets, Relief to be indoors, you have no idea! Met some lovely people we have only known on facebook and in blogland, that was lovely, and some lovely customers who recognised us from other places. Thanks for coming !

Now it's back to the sudio creating lots of things for Gatton Christmas in the Country on at the Gatton Town Hall on Friday and Saturday the 5th and 6th November, then to fill my new bricks and mortar shop in Forest Hill official opening on 11th, but in reality I will probably be open on the 9th November. Hope you'll come for a look see. I'll tell you more about that in the next 23 days! Busy, busy, busy !

Micky and Liesa had their 30th Birthday party on Saturday night and presented these floral arrangements to mr bubba and I, ( the red one is mr bubbas )

They came from Trumans, a local florist that also has a stall at our market. Justine does such an awesome job with floral arrangements don't you think?
You can find Trumans by searching Trumans on Facebook and also at The Handmade Expo each month.

Thanks so much Liesa and Micky, they are truely divine :-) X O

The fragrance filling the house is beautiful too.
