Any Mail For Me?

I've just been catching up on my blog reading and came across this at Fat Mum Slim ... a mail exchange!!  Personally I love getting mail, you know, the old fashioned type, in the letterbox (or even a knock on the door for a big parcel!). I even get excited waiting for supplies to arrive, knowing that they're on their way, but not sure exactly when they'll arrive. So I've decided to take part in Chantelle's mail exchange... can't wait to see who I'll get to send something to either, this will be fun!

Photo Shoot::

Over the weekend I did a small shoot of some new products for the shop... Whoever said that working with animals and kids was a bad idea was definitely onto something!!


I did get the pics I needed using my best pleading and persuasion... actually, I think the offer of a lollipop was what really worked!!

Great Giveaway::

Hands up who doesn't like free stuff?... Anyone?... Nope thought as much!!

On my fairly frequent blog readings, I came across this giveaway for some Nan Lawson art, so if you would also like a chance to win you should enter too!

Wild Thing Max - Nan Lawson

Another shop I love at the moment is belleandboo, the illustrations are just too cute, but I can't figure out where they'd fit at mine?

Weekend Reflections 04

Another busy weekend has just flown past, did anyone see where it went?  We had two sick boys to look after so spent most of our time at home.  They're doing ok but have bad colds and the 'coughers' as my little 2 y.o. would say.  Luckily for me, the patterns I bought arrived last Thursday and I was in the middle of making myself a skirt!!! And yes, I've finished, and yes it was hugely rewarding.  Though I'm not sure I'm ready to share a photo of it just yet... but it definitely turned out better than the peasant top nightmare!!

It's so wonderful to have a new little challenge, a new skill to learn and something to stretch one's mind with.  I'm hoping I'll also be able to make the kids some shorts, nothing too fancy, just something to play around in.

On the shop front, IndigoElephant is almost up to 100 sales, so to celebrate, the next five buyers will receive a complimentary set of bobby pins with their purchase, just let me know which set you'd like in the 'message to seller' at checkout.  The newest elephant buddy is now available instore... it's just gorgeous - if I do say so myself!!

The Elephant Army

 Here is my own little army!! These cuties were all made over one weekend to fill Christmas orders, so I hope they are all happily settled in their new homes by now.  The one 3rd from the right is yet to be listed in the shop, it was made for a very good friend as his Christmas present, and is living it up in San Francisco. Its sibling will be in the shop this weekend!

Happy 2010!!

Happy New Year!

Here's to a fantastic year ahead for everyone, may it bring you much joy, and good times with those you love.

I have made my resolutions, but rather than boring you with them, will just say that they all involve being more organised and more productive with my time... One of them has already been achieved!!  I decided to have a go at making some clothes, and started with a little kit  of precut pieces to make a dress (for a little girl).  It was a breeze to make, but I still haven't had a chance to try it on an actual child as I've been forbidden from trying it on my boys.  I've also ordered a pattern for some cute shorts, so I can actually make something for the boys!  Will be sure to share some pics if they turn out any good!
