Kawaii Stationary!

I saw a cute video on youtube that used polymer clay toppers for paperclips and I thought I would give it a go using some of my own polymer clay creations! I think they turned out okay for a first try :) Here's the paper clips I have up on my Etsy store, I also have some onigiri paperclips for sale in store @ Handmade Highstreet in Brisbane, Annerley :)

Supporting refugee rights

Let’s sink offshore processing

On 11 October, Parliament will meet to vote on changes to the Migration Act. One of two things could happen: either the government will successfully weaken protections for refugees, shunning our international obligations under the Refugee Convention - or, the vote will fail in a major victory for the rights of refugees.
This is a pivotal moment in the refugee debate in Australia. Polls show that the majority of Australians support onshore processing - and that number is growing by the day. The High Court of Australia has already upheld the rights of refugees in a landmark decision; now it's time for our politicians to do likewise.

Send a clear message to Minister Bowen that Australians want to see refugee rights protected, and their claims processed onshore.

Sign our petition and join the growing movement of Australians calling on the government to commit to onshore processing. Amnesty International's global director Salil Shetty will hand-deliver your petition to Immigration Minister Chris Bowen ahead of the 11 October parliamentary vote.
Petition text:
Dear Minister Bowen,
Processing all refugee claims onshore is not only Australia’s duty as a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention, but also a fairer, cheaper and more humane approach.
We ask that you abandon policies that would send refugees to other countries and commit to processing the refugee claims of people who arrive in Australia.
We ask that when creating refugee policy, you remember the following facts:
  • seeking asylum is legal, even if arriving by boat
    • the numbers of asylum seekers arriving in Australia are small compared to other places, and
    • the vast majority who arrive by boat are genuine refugees fleeing violence and terror.

    Sign the petition here to stop offshore processing of refugees:

    A message for Australians!

    Clubs Australia are spending the big bucks to convince Australians that reforms to help problem gamblers with pokie machine addiction are "UnAustralian." They're spending millions playing fast and loose with the facts while many Australian families deal with the harsh reality of our pokie industry and the problem gambling it enables.
    This week, Clubs Australia announced that they've teamed up with NRL bosses to launch an ad campaign during this weekend's widely watched footy grand finals. 

    GetUp! Has made their own video countering the gross distortions of fact in the Clubs campaigns. Please share it with friends! And if you can, please donate here > www.getup.org.au/campaigns/pokies-reform/grandfinal-ad/get-this-ad-on-the-air to help get this advertisement aired during the grand final

    Finally got my shipment of alligator clips the other day, and promptly went clip crazy covering them in every colour ribbon I could find. I now have a pile of about 100 clips in every shade of the rainbow! I started back at uni this week so I haven't had a chance to decorate them all yet. I did do a few though and I think they turned out super cute. It makes me wish I had a little girl so I could cute-ify her hair everyday :)

    Here's some of my new clippies that I loooove:

    Hope everyone is having a great day!

    I wish I could live in this house! So much pink and hello kitty! I'm filled with envy right now. Pink envy.

    Alas I shall never live in such a house, mostly because my partner would probably die of pink overload :P

    So for now I shall just keep making delightful hello kitty accessories to feed my obsession :)
