Only trivial

It seems quite trivial to be posting a blog about Mainichi at a time like this, with all the bushfires raging around Victoria. But out of great tragedy comes great hope, and we're a resilient lot. It helps to have a nation rallying to support, and apparently Australians have already helped raise over $30Million AU to aid victims of the bushfires.

If you would like to know more about how to help in any way check out Our Community - thanks to Emma from Aprons and Hammers for the link. As well as clearing out the shed of excess household items, I will be donating ten percent of my Etsy online sales for the remainder of February to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal 2009 (please note their website is experiencing heavy traffic, so be patient).

On a lighter note the team at Found Handmade featured my brown leather "Kawa" necklace on their blog entry "Not your Grandmother's leather", thanks guys!
