Small Update

It feels like forever since I’ve posted anything here, and I’m going to be honest – my love for Moomin has kind of dwindled recently. It’s really upsetting, but I don’t have time to scroll through my Twitter feed everyday like I used to, and I feel as though there aren’t many amazing products or news to tell you about. Since Moomin launched their website and own blog, I don’t feel like mine really compares to that because they obviously have insider knowledge that’s much more interesting than anything I could write about!

On the plus side, I’m saving up to go to Japan, and they are opening a Moomin theme park in 2015! I’ve also booked my holiday to Finland this summer (July 18th-25th) which means I can finally visit the Ateneum Tove Jansson exhibition and a whole load of other places (see Tove100.com for more events)

I promise I’ll be more active in the future when I can be, and I’ll try to use Twitter more too. I’m not sure what type of posts you all like to read, so if you can please comment below with what you’d like to see on my blog and I’ll try my best :)

I’m being very optimistic though and part of me thinks that all this has happened for a reason. In August/September 2011, just before I started university, I discovered that there were jobs available in the Moomin Shop in Covent Garden. The thought occurred to me that I should work there, but being from Manchester, I wasn’t prepared to move. I do regret not going for this, but I honestly couldn’t see myself working in a shop for the rest of my life. I want to create new things that people will be ecstatic about – just the way I am when I see new products released.
