Saying goodbye

I've had to come to a very hard and heart breaking decision. JazyJae's is going out of business. after nearly two years of working my but of I'm saying goodbye.
Not a decision taken lightly. After all I have put my heart and soul into it. Just very recently spent a lot of money on logo designs, packaging and signage. However due to lack of sales and having pretty much every clothing piece copied I'm spent. Way too much money, time and designs lost to pick it all up and keep going.
When your pouring your energies and heart into something that is only giving back satisfaction of creation it is heart breaking. When people scrutinize your work at one market and come back to the next one with pretty much exact work is even more heart breaking then when people who are suposed to be friends it crushing. after all this business was named after my two most gorgeous creations my children so to say goodbye to it is a hard thing to do.
I may keep putting the odd thing here and there up on madeit but I am over it and the politics that come with it.
Over the last two years I have met some geniunly lovely and awesome people. To them I send wishes of great success. I just hope you don't suffer the same fate I have. A few I have formed wonderfull friendships with.
To those who have copied whilst smiling and saying how lovely and well made my things are....."You may be making a load of money now but in time it all will come crashing down and you will have no one but yourselves to blame"
So for now I am slowly selling of my stock through my facebook page and some will go up on Madeit when i have the funds to pay the fees.
Goodbye my lovelies!

I think it is sweet.

I'm raising money for Child Wise

Over at my Facebook page I am running a fund raising sale for a wonderful organisation Child Wise go here to find their about us page. I came accross them when I was in Melbourne for a conferance for my job. The company I work for supports Child Wise through the sale of hand creams that all the proceeds from sales of the creams go directly to their "Stop sex trafficking of children and young people" campaign. Just $27 buys a child all the school supplies they need to go to school which includes: uniforms,books,pencils,backpack. Then $54 buys a child a bike to get to school. Through having just these simple items it keeps children in Cambodia occupied and getting an education which in turn helps prevent them becoming vulunerable from being a target for sex trafficking. The organisation also helps get children and young people out of sex trafficing by providing them a home and education and rehabilitation to go on and become the amazing people they were ment to be.
They not only do great work in Cambodia they also work in the Asia Pacific region including here in Australia.
I was so moved by the presentation done both on the business school day but also actually on conferance day that when I got back home I really could not stop thinking about them....and have not stoped thinking about them since.
I don't seem to be moving many hand creams in my job but I just knew I had to do more and will probably continue to work to raise money for them for as long as I can.
My only other way I could think of immediately to help out was through selling of all my older stock and donate 20% of the sales to Child Wise.
This organisation and what they do really touches my heart. I was a victim of abuse as a child and teen and now I am a survivor so there is nothing more heart warming to me more than knowing there are people out there who are helping to enable our most vulnerable people to become survivors and wonderful people. All people should have that!
So please check out the sale and buy something to help. If there is not something in the sale albums that apeals to you. Go to the Child Wise site and make a donation.
Thankyou for your support!

Go Dragons

My little girl is a mad Dragons supporter (NRL for those not in the know). I have no clue why she has chosen this team as I don't follow NRL I am a sad Aussie Rules supporter and follow the Demons. She is super excited over her team being in the Grand Final tomorrow. So last night she created a poster.

So tomorrow when I usually would be doing JazyJae's things I am being a good Mum and making her a red and white cake and commining up with other red and white food to be made and eaten, along with trying to calm her down so she does not burn herself out before kick of.
