Happy Australia Day!

What a beautiful day it is in the Sunshine state today! The perfect kind of day for celebrating all things Australian and being thankful for all this great country has to offer. As most of you would be aware, over the past few weeks, parts of Australia have been torn apart by devastating floods. While the floods were nothing short of heartbreaking it has been amazing to see the generosity of individuals and communities from all over the world who have pulled together and raised much needed funds for all of those affected.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank-you to all of our Aussie fans who have supported our Handmade Ark Appeal over the past few weeks. So far we have raised over $3277 as a result of your generosity. You can keep a watch on the Handmade Ark tally in the side bar of the blog under the Handmade Ark blog button.

On a celebratory note, selected Australian Etsy street teams are also participating in a mega 'Australia Day' promo.
