Merry Christmas Joyeux New Year

Counting down now until 1pm when I can start getting into the Chrissy spirit, Something happened this year and I am not really " into " it yet !

5 sleeps and I'll be in Melbourne for a girls family holiday so we hope to catch up with some blogging buddies then and break bread with them, we hope you can make it along, details unknown exactly yet but you'll hear on the Melbourne bloggy grapevine ! ( pleeeeeeeeeease come :-) )

Thanks to everyone this year for your support of bubbachenille and The Handmade Expo, and now mimmis, without you all, your friendship and your creativity and support and encouragement none of these things would be possible, I love a lot of you for different reasons !

mimmis is closed from today until the 12th January, when it all starts over again, all refreshed with lots of new inspiration !

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and have a great New Year !

Getting Close

I seriously cant believe it's almost Christmas, holidays, last market for the year and just for the fact that everything seems to come to a massive build up and then........the end of the year and time to re- assess the next year, a bit ground hog day, but ground hog year !

When I opened mimmis on the 11th November I had already planned, booked and paid for a lovely girly holiday in Melbourne with my mum, sister, and daughters so I will be closing mimmis from 1 pm Christmas Eve and re opening on Wednesday 12th January 2011. Next year my weekend will be Mondays and Tuesdays and will be open Wed to Sun every week.

I am finding it hard to find time to blog as regularly as I did pre mimmis, but I dont want to stop blogging. I am still reading all the blogs I follow and trying to keep up with all the wonderful things you do, but alas, too much commenting takes up a lot of time. I am a Facebook addict and tend to keep up with lots of creative people on there more than in blog land these days.

mimmis is quite full at the moment with about 25 creative people contributing to beautiful things for sale in mimmis and customers are truely delighted at the quality and cleverness of all my contributors, so congrats to all those handmadies, you know who you are !

Theres always an opportunity to have your lovely things in mimmis on commission or wholesale purchase, so if you are interested in having mimmis as one of your stockists then please get in touch with me.

Theres a big night planned here in Forest Hill tonight with the closure of the street this afternoon and I'm told around 5000 people flood into this tiny village for the annual Christmas Festival, I have some helpers coming in and lots of new stock, the main attraction to this festival is the hundreds of hams and turkeys raffled off by way of the good old "Ham Wheels ".

All proceeds go to each group in town like the SES, the school, Fire Dept etc.

Busy behind the scenes with the last Handmade Expo for 2010 too, It's on next Saturday 18th and you can expect at least 120 stalls, A long visit from the Jolly man in the red suit, Carolers and Pioneer Steam Train rides too. Great for last minute Christmas shopping.

I will catch you before Christmas, enjoy your day !
