I am in search of any Flow weekly mini magazines/notebooks. I know they are only published in Deutch at the moment but I would still like to get some

Hi my name is Alison and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm married and have a little boy who is 2 and a baby girl who is 2 months old. We also have a chocolate labrador and six chickens.
I am creative by nature and love any opportunity to get the imagination going. It is not unusual to find me sitting at the dining table that is covered in all my crafty items busily completing one project or another!
I like to go to craft markets and discover local designers, especially illustrators who design their own cards and prints.
I find nature to be a source of inspiration which is lucky for me because I am surrounded by some beautiful areas, starting with my garden :)
I enjoy yoga and meditation, I find this to be the ultimate in relaxation and always feel so content afterwards.
I am a tea drinker, in particular I drink chai, darjeeling or any other black tea. And I love to cook! I'm not very good at creativity in the kitchen, I tend to follow recipes but I'm always on the hunt for yummy vegetarian recipes!
I like to handmake a lot of my envies. I have so much pretty paper that I want to use rather than have just sitting around! I also like to get artsy with my envies whenever I can. I also love to write letters :) If you have not received my mail, please contact me and I will happily resend! If there is something from Australia you would REALLY like, just pm me and I will try to get it for you :) Also, I know it can be hard to find something to send so it's the thought that counts. Even a little note makes it special. Just seeing happy mail in my letterbox makes my day so whatever you send if I know you have made it special in a little way I'll be grateful :)
