Ello! I'm really excited because my fabric arrived from Spoonflower... fabric for making baby bibs! These little bibs are ready to be cut out and sewn together with some terry towelling to make cute and absorbent bibs for messy little bubbas :) I'll be launching these early in the New Year - yippee! Hope you all had lovely weekends and are relaxed and ready for Christmas xo

what a fab day!

I had a wee table and chairs set up with free colour-in activities for the kiddies - it was a hit!
Elora came to the market in between naps, dressed her in her Wonder Woman onesie hehe!
 Market day was UNREAL! The rain held off until late in the arvo, long after we had packed up and gone home - hurrah! It was warm and sunny (although quite gusty, there were moments I thought the marquee might blow away!) and lots of lovely, lovely people came out to enjoy the market. I met some fab people and had some very gorgeous customers - thanks guys! I think my fave customers had to be a wee brother and sister team who got very excited about choosing little owl softies for themselves and didn't want me to put them into paper bags because they just wanted to cuddle them hehehe! SO CUTE! Big, fat thanks to my awesome sis who helped out the whole day and Marty and my folks-in-law who supplied tables, transport and helping hands for set-up and pack-down. Will most definitely be doing that market again throughout 2012 hurrah! Happy Sunday folks! xox
P.S... I have FIVE owl softies left, they'll be up in my Etsy store tonight if anyone would like to provide homes for them! :)

kinda nearly almost ready

Nearly organised for the market tomorrow yay! SO many little things to do - packaging and price tags and figuring out how to display stuff! But it's all fun and it's a good learning process :)
There's rain and even thunderstorms forecast for tomorrow from late morning so I'm REALLY hoping those big old rainclouds hold off until later in the day, fingers crossed! Come on down and say hello if you are in the area, I'd love to see you!!
I'll have SPECIAL market prices on all my products - Christmas cards $3, greeting cards $4, colouring-in kits $12, invite packs $10 and lots more!
Okie dokie, I'm gonna go cut out some price display sign thingies now.... hope you have a great Friday and a lovely weekend!

making babies...

... owl babies teehee! Here is what I've been creating with my sewing machine. I even had some Little Beehive tags made up so these little dudes can show loud and proud where they came from :) They are made from new and vintage fabric and pure wool felt. They were heaps of fun to make, I only wish I had time to make some more. There will be 14 of these guys for sale at the market for $15 each, but any owls that haven't found homes will be looking for owners in my Etsy shop after the market. I do hope to create some more so they can be a permanent item in my Etsy shop. Hope your Mondays are smooth sailing! xo
