Back and one last blast

I seem to have had a bit of a hiatus from blogging recently. Life got really busy. I'm pleased to say that we've knocked Miss K's eczema pretty much on the head (I'll update proper later) and the family headed off to Oz for a much needed 'reconnect' holiday after ther rugby world cup.

The FromNZWithLove project has been AMAZING. I have over 150 hats, scarves, gloves, slippers etc ready to send off next week to Japan. Our contact there tells us it is very cold and that people are living in thinly lined accommodation, so these items are really appreciated.

My last project for 2011 is Xmas4Christchurch. We will be sending Christmas (gifts, food, goodies etc) to a Mum and her two children (daughter aged 4 and son aged 3) who have had to relocate from Christchurch after the earthquakes. So... I'm collecting items (ideally handmade, but new is absolutely fine) for the family - clothing, toys, toiletries, home made baking for 'Christmas and beyond' (think too of the things they might need in the coming year).

If you'd like to help out (even contacting a courier company would be appreciated!) then please email me on hapachica at gmail dot com or leave a message below!

Let's get into the spirit of giving!
