Out There!

Hey ok, so I am a little late off the mark, but I have to tell you all that I have put some of my things into a fabulous shop in Ipswich, QLD a couple of weeks ago! Handmade Heaven. All appears to be going very well too, so I had better get cracking on making more stuff before the month is up or I won't have anthing left in there!!!! If you are in Ipswich or just passing through, then go and check out Liesa's shop it is in a really cool building, The Old Flour Mill, 231 Brisbane Street Ipswich. Thanks for everyones support, it is so appreciated! :o)

Crane Chain

I know I have been quiet for awhile, but have had so many things going on at home that i have not had alot of time to do other things, but now I am back and raring to go. Frist up, here is my new item... a crane chain...made up of paper cranes, lovingly folded by me and beads on a string. Tey make a lovely addition to any room, but would look really lovely in a baby's room. Hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them! Great to be back at it. More soon!!!

Back in Business Now!!

YAY! Computer fixed....didn't cost me that much...happy!

Now back to it. Have just added some new items to my etsy shop. Some Burp cloths. A friend of mine with a new baby asked me to make some because a. she wanted some in nice fabrics, b. she didn't want to have to get a bib with it, c. she didn't want to pay the earth for one, and d. she wanted one made in Australia. So I think I have met all of the criteria for her and as I said you can take a look for yourself on my etsy site.

She bought the car one and the echino owl and tiger one. Taking them to her next week. Any excuse to see that new little bubba of hers!

Happy browsing.

Team Member

YAY! I am a member of the Kookie Kids Team! Have to set up the links and everything yet, but I am excited! They are a team that is for people making handmade items for kids under 1 year. It is a great way for people who are indtersted in that kind of thing to find out about me and my shop. There are so many fabulous people on there doing fabulous things. Haven't been to all of the shops there yet, but they sure look dangerous for the buyer in me!

Starting out

Ok, so here we are. I have my etsy shop set up and I now have my new blog site! How exciting! I now have 25 items up for sale on my shop and alot of interest so all is looking up.
I made a new toy on the weekend, a ticking cat. He is made out of ticking fabric and has felt details...he is so cute.
Yesterday I put him up on my shop and in a couple of minutes he was sold, so I was so happy that someone else thought he was as cute as I did. He is off to a lovely home in California!!! YAY!
Anyway, this weekend I will be makingmore toys as I am waiting on my partner to bring me some more bags of keep an eye out. :o)
