Fall Fashion

Christina and I were invited to the Label Fashion show as part of Toronto Fashion Week. We were delighted to go and of course see the clothes which were fabulous, but also all the wonderful outfits, especially shoes, that the audience were wearing! We also donated 300 mini 3x4"ecojot notebooks that were part of the goody bags. Hope they land up in some very creative hands.

Earth Hour

Tomorrow from 8.30 to 9.30pm, turn off your light and sit by candlelight with your pen and journal in hand. Take this time for yourself and in this hour write down your day's experiences, your reactions and your reflections of what it is to be without light (for only 1 hour!)

Let us know your EARTH HOUR stories on facebook this Tuesday! Best story wins the ecojot Jumbo Quote Journa... "Take care of the Earth and she will take care you".

"Go beyond the hour". The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is asking people to switch off for more than an hour this year. WWF also requests its fans to observe a minute to pray for those who lost loved ones and those who died in the Japanese calamity.

Took some fun shots of our "deliciously new and proving very popular" notecard packs! I redesigned a whole new range for January and we had this lovely box custom made to house them. I am now busy on the next set of 12 new ones, so look our for those.
Have a great weekend, Spring seems to be in the air, and we'll see you next week.
