Welcome to the world of Kimona Creates

Welcome to the world of Kimona. I love to create beautiful things especially cards and customised stationery made from fabrics of all kinds. The process of making our products begins with the selection of the fabrics and materials and then is completely manual. We do not add bits to pre-existing printed card, we make our products from scratch.

We have an in-stock selection of cards which can be used for any occasion or can be adapted for special use Take a look at the posts to see some pictures of them.

We use several types of fabrics including a range of Thai silk, Chinese silk brocade, ribbon and sequins and a glittery Christmas range. We are always looking for new and exciting fabrics and ideas and can design anything to suit our clients needs and they have asked us to design special occasion stationery for weddings, barmitzvah's, christenings, parties and for corporate use. Our service is truely bespoke.

I would love you to join me on my creative journey and will keep you posted on what I get up to.

Be well and take good care,

2011 Feng Shui Almanac (May 2011)

I just came across this calendar and thought you might be interested in.............

"Tips on choosing a good day"

1. For big events such as wedding, buying property/car, moving house and grand openings, it is best to avoid 3rd, 6th and 7th lunar months.

2. Avoid holding big events on days where San Niang Affliction appears.

3. Days where one has zodiac conflict (particularly with certain age) is bad for that particular zodiac, but good for the rest of the zodiacs.

4. Every day will be a good day if one carefully selects that day to do the correct things right:
a. Placing Feng Shui Remedy - If one starts placing their feng shui enhancers on a good day, it would be doubly auspicious to yield better results. This includes building the wealth vase, placing the wealth ship, displaying a water fountain etc.
b. Start Biz - The grand opening or the day that marks the start of a business and career is very important to assure success. One has to choose a good day to embark on a new endeavour in order to face less obstacles and ride higher.
c. Move House - Moving into a new house marks the new beginning in ones life and the family wellbeing. The day when one moves in plays an important role to determine if one can stay free from illnesses, disturbances and havoc.
d. Negotiate/Interview - If one chooses a good day to meet up with important people to negotiate for sales and business, the chances of success is higher. Same goes for those who wants to make a one-on-one appointment with their bosses to propose an idea or negotiate for promotion. And no doubt, if one goes for a new job interview, it is always more beneficial to choose a day without conflict.
e. Travel - Travelling here refers to long distance travel, either going on a business trip, relocation or tour purposes. One would find the trip less stressful, less chances of accident and his/her health stays at tip top condition if he/she chooses a good day to travel.
f. Renovate/Hammer - This is the day one should choose to start their renovation work or doing any banging work that increases noise level. This includes hammering nails onto walls, hammering down of walls, removing wall cabinets, applying tiles on floor, repairing doors, fixing the roof, installing the air conditioner etc.

The chinese only has 12 hours in a day and they name the hours by the 12 zodiacs. The conversion between chinese hours and international hours are as follows:
Rat hour - 23:00 to 01:00
Ox hour - 01:00 to 03:00
Tiger hour - 03:00 to 05:00
