It is Monday and a new Month so I thought it would be the perfect way to show off some pictures of my little ones modeling their wears and also of a friends little one in hers.
Got a picture of your little one in a handmade piece, feel free to send it to us.
We have been busy little beavers over at Woddle Bots creating up a storm in preparation for the change of seasons. Which given the current weather is a while off, we are looking down the barrel of some 40+ degree days so Winter is still sometime off.
Some old favourites will be back, but also some new items for both the little men & little woman in your life, check back over the next few months to see.
Here are some to spark your interests.
We've got plenty more winter item finished here and will be taking our winter stock with us to the Mathilda Markets in March :)
Something new for 2010 is Thursday Treasures.
A way for me to online window shop for local finds and share what I discover with my favourite people. Today I am going to share with you my finds that are doll related, a current obsession of my daughters.
These Russian Doll posters would be great on a bedroom wall, different & practical.
If you find something you think would fit for Thursday Treasures, send me an email.
Another weekend, another market.
Thankfully the weather in Mundaring yesterday was much more barable and it saw people enjoying the fresh morning before the afternoon warmth arrived. We had a lovely day, all be it a little relaxing but the stall looked awesome with all our new products up on display.
Some of the library bags are loaded to Woddle Bots ready to make their way to your homes, the rest should be up by tonight, with the pencil cases, wetbags & adorable quilts following quickly behind.
Isn't your little one starting school for the first time scary, scary more so for you than for them. Kaleb starts Kindy in February and I know he is looking forward to it, I am looking forward to some peace & quiet but at the same time I do wonder how he will go.
New environment, longer days, new people and instructions from someone other than me.
Regardless we have some more products that will arrive online very shortly that will help you prepare for the new school year.
It is certainly creeping up on us, yet again.
The beginning of the school year is just around the corner and with that comes uniforms, bags, books, lunch boxes, shoes and children driving us crazy. We have managed to find sometime since coming back from holidays to create some awesome (even if I do say so myself) looking book bags & swim bags ready for just this occasion.
Check them out at Mundaring Markets this weekend: Nicol Street, Mundaring 9zm - 3pm
Here is a sneak peak.
