Oh hello! Hope you are well!

I just wanted to pop in to say Softies For Mirabel for 2014 is GO! We’ve been super busy getting everything sorted and it’s now ready for your viewing pleasure! (If you’re not sure what Softies For Mirabel is, or you want to find out how to join in. Head here for all the details. It’s not too late! It’s all for The Mirabel Foundation kids, FYI!)

The photos in this post show you where we’re at (so far!) I’m HOPING that the whole window will be full by the time Softies For Mirabel winds up towards the end of December. #fingerscrossed! I sort of accidentally almost made a heart with them, so I am going to totally try for that in the coming days! Keep an eye on Flickr or Instagram to see the window fill up and change over the coming weeks!


You can keep an eye on the #SoftiesForMirabel tag on Instagram to see what people are making.
You can follow the Softies For Mirabel group on Flickr to see the toys as they arrive and are unpacked.

A huge thanks to everyone who’s helped with this projects so far. Can you believe 2014 is our EIGHTH year?! Time flies, right? That’s eight years of everyone helping to make soft toys for rad kids. Bam! Good work gang!

I’ll take some better photos after dark, so we can see the window sans reflection. (It’s quite tricky during the day!) Sorry about the glare, man.

Chat soon. Thanks again, pets!

x Pip

    Hi Pip
    Wow!! That’s a sweet pile of love in the window. 🙂

    I just checked with Australia Post parcel tracker. Apparently my box is awaiting collection from the post office. I just hope they all find happy homes.
