Make a Wish

I used to love finding dandelions when I was a kid, making wishes was the best part! They still make me smile :D

Dust Team Christmas in July 2009

Do these words conjure up an Australian Christmas for you??

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
(Torme & Wells, 1946)

No, not usually. Unless, of course, they refer to the Etsy Down Under Street Team (DUST) "Aussie Christmas in July" promotional weekend.

Etsy DUST members from all around Australia are coming together for one whole weekend, 12.01AM Saturday 25th July through to 11.59PM Sunday 26th July (AEST), to showcase their talents & stunningly handmade creations.

All stores participating will be offering a promotion to their customers - free worldwide shipping or % off sales; a selection of items at reduced prices or reverse auctions.

With so much variety, including jewellery, children's clothing & accessories, art, supplies, vintage items, stationery & bags, you are sure to find something to suit each & every taste.

The DUST team will also be running giveaways for the entirety of the weekend, giving you the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes from Australian sellers. Poke your nose into the Etsy Forums during the promotion for your chance to win.

I encourage you to visit the participating stores, as well as our team website - - and support the handmade revolution sweeping Australia.

Stay tuned for more details as the weekend draws nearer.

Guide Dogs!

Our family is full of dog lovers here so when the Guide Dogs Centre had an Open Day Fund Raiser we just had to go.

There were dog shows, tours of the buildings, and loads of guide dogs in training roaming the grounds with their trainers.

We had a wonderful day, with a lot of fluffy dogs being purchased with some well earned pocket money.

There was a coloring in competition, another thing we love here is coloring in! This morning I got a phone call to say that one of the girls won the prize in her age group. She was very happy about winning!
