Shinzi Love

Well, well, well, it seems Miss Lara has impressed once again, this girl really just keeps delivering. She has kindly alerted me to a couple of places where I can purchase Shinzi Katoh within the land of Aus, well at least without the ginourmous shipping prices from Japan. Number 1 we have Arthur's Circus, which I actually read about on Pip's blog the other day, alas Arthur's Circus is in North Melbourne, and as much as I would love to, I have minimal free time from now until Christmas (eg. today was my last day off from two weeks) and I really do not think I would be able to make it there *sigh*. Luckily stockist number 2 is a delicious ebay store! Oh my friend the internet, what wonders and woes you have done for me and my credit card. So stockist number 2 is Blue Sky Tree store and they appear to sell a heap of Shinzi Katoh stuff, mainly totes however which is sad. Although I do have my eye on a very cute yearly organizer thingy, hands off it's mine! I am still lusting after oh... about 90% of the stock on the Shinzi Katoh website however, so I may have to just grit my teeth and fork out the shipping money, I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.. right?

In other news as mentioned earlier today was my last day off for two weeks. Next week I am working 32 hours at the hamper room plus my usual 9 hours of cleaning (*edit* new roster, I'm now working 47 hours this week), and that doesn't even include my 7 hours of xmas room tomorrow plus 3 hours of babysitting for the doc. Yay.. aren't the holidays just great? So this all means that blogging and all-round craftiness will be kept to a minimum, which sucks. Oh and I also got my uni results today, I did pretty well, two credits, a distinction and a high distinction so I'm reasonably happy although I was hoping for higher marks in two units. So I had better run off to bed now so that I don't collapse during my work marathon tomorrow, here is the stamp set I'm dreaming about on Shinzi, I don't know what I'd use it for but by-god I'd find something!

Good night all xx

I thought that I'd let you know that we stock the stamp set you are lusting after. We have that one plus the New York Set and Today Stamp set. As you are too busy working to come and visit our shop perhaps we could post it or put one aside. Email us if you would like. Thanks for popping by our blog.

Hi Fibo

I was searching the net for the Shinzi Katoh Bird Stamp set and found your blog!

I laughed as thought i must be crazy to be lusting after the bird stamp set espec at my age ( 30 something! heehee)so could relate to your love of all things Shinzi Katoh! Maybe there should be a Shinzi Katoh fan club!

I was unable to purchase the stamp set from the UK as it must have sold like hot cakes but just managed to purchase it from Etsy/Japan and paid a little more...But i hope its worth it! I can't wait to recieve it and start stamping away at my letters. I too am a believer in sending people traditional mail, its always nice to get something through the post and even better if hand written with lovely bird stamps on!
