Celebrate Australia Day 2011

Australia Day to me means we appreciate the beauty of the beaches that surround
our beautiful country. We find whats unique and we enjoy sharing it with diverse nationalities
and cultures.

Being able to travel and experience the natural beauty of the outback
and the Cities. Knowing that when we come back from our journey we can share it
with all our wonderful family and friends.
There is no other place like Australia.

Big Thank you's to Dale from SeaDream Studio at Etsy http://www.seadreamstudio.etsy.com/
has woven her magic again for me and created a sweet blue toned and
spangly banner for my new Astrachic Designs Shop at Etsy.
Thanks for putting my dreams on track!

See it at http://www.astrachicdesigns.etsy.com/
I am busy getting it up and running and love the fresh new look.
Having two shops means I can put my handcrafted goodies and supplies on one
while keeping the Vintage and Retro treasures at http://www.astrachic.etsy.com/

2011 at Etsy is already busy with Adelaide starting its own team up.
Great because we are can keep in touch and do group sales etc.

Celebrate Australia Day with Etsy Teams down under.
Check out the Australian Shops who will be having a SALE
country wide from Jan 26th to Jan 31.
I am having 15% OFF at Astrachic Studio and Astrachic Designs Shops.

While we are all helping by giving donations to the Flood Appeal in Queensland
lots of groups are coming up with ways to raise as much money as possible.
At Etsy the DUST Team have set up a dedicated shop with all profits to be
donated to the Premier's Flood Appeal.

will take you to the shop that has a great selection of crafted items
from a mix of talented artists and crafty Australians.

Best of all they are AUSSIE MADE!
Be Quick, I have purchased a lovely item that I will be using as a give away
on my Blog for one of my special visitors here.

My dear friend Simone at Beach Vintage Blog is helping those who are
still trying to clean up and get back to normal all around the Brisbane
flood affected areas. Simone and her friend Jody have been taking fresh water,
supplies and fresh food direct to those who are in need of a helping hand.
If you would like to help donate any money to such a wonderful effort
that goes straight back to those coping daily with the challenges of getting back
on their feet after such devastation and loss.

Visit Simone at Beach Vintage
Time to help in such a great way. Thank you Simone for doing so much
to brighten up the day of so many!

Well Today all Australians and Australians at Heart can Celebrate
being a part of this amazing spirit and community. Enjoy!
Have the best Australian Day with those you love,

  1. Happy belated Australia Day! What an amazing country - I look forward to returning soon to continue exploring it! We visited this time last year (GBR and Sydney) and absolutely loved the people and scenery.
