Lucky marimo is back in time for those still looking for great stocking stuffers!!!

Marimo is an algae ball that comes from northern Japan & is said to bring good luck!

It is alive & does require some simple care. All you gotta do is change marimo's water once every 2 weeks! It grows about 5mm every year!

Marimo is cute!

From $8.50- $15 each!!!

A good cause [Dec. 14th, 2008|03:43 pm]

This is Andrew, he is 11 years old. He started this great project in 2005. Called Andrews Book's. He collects children's books for schools in isolated first nations communities in Canada. He started with just collecting books from kids at his own birthday party. So no toys for him, he would just request books from his party guests to help other children out! Can you believe it?? So sweet.

This year he had hoped to beat his record of 300 books from last year. Sadly so far only 75 books have been collected. And not very much in dollars has been donated. So terrible! Andrew has a website here, Andrew's Books. You can find more about his project there & his goals. Also a paypal button if you are so kind to help this little guy reach his goal.

These are the children that he is helping this year. They live in Attawapiskat, Ontario, It's very sad the conditions that these children have to learn in, in our very OWN country. They have been fighting for a new school for a while, but still have not received proper funding. How could anyone say "no" to children begging for a school?!!! It's crazy & so sad.

You can see more about them & their school J.R Nakogee Elementary School here.
I couldn't think of children more deserving of our help.

I'm hoping that you will check it out & help Andrew out & help other children that aren't as lucky. You can even send new children's books to him, if you don't have paypal!

I'm going to set up a little box in Occupied to help out too!

We just got in our shipment of yummy soap from , You smell!

Designer Megan Cummins created the packaging for You Smell . . . Like a Lemon soap while she was a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Now the concept has turned into reality & we have this fun soap in for the holidays!

The soap is made of 100% organic goat's milk & comes in two scents.
Lemon & Mint.

This is a perfect stocking stuffer!!!

We just got the cutest army of Troglodytes in Occupied today!!!

They seriously seem like they could just stand up & walk over to you at any moment. I LOVE them.

We have a few colours to choose from & they each have a short little description of their likes & dislikes on their tag.

Handmade by Jill Penney!!!
