Everyone loves a sale and I love selling things. But more than that, I wanted to come up with a way to follow up on the video I made a couple of weeks back for World Prematurity Day. It starred Elsie and it helped to spread the word and raise awareness of prematurity - the … Continue reading Take 20% off in-stock* items and know that you’re making a difference
I know I said 'Never again.' And it was only a couple of weeks ago that I said it. But I lied. I am doing it again. Another market. This weekend. Yes, I am serious. I have a lot of cool stock. It's still all packed up from the last market and it was begging … Continue reading I lied. And I’m probably crazy.
I'm not going to lie. I totally underestimated the physical, financial and emotional costs of a two-day market in Melbourne. In the lead up, life revolved around getting ready for the market. My answer to anything that Elsie and Maeve asked was standard: 'Can we do some baking?' 'Yes. After the market.' 'Can you make … Continue reading How was the market?

We had a great night and were so pleased with how well received our things were and how many of them we sold. It's lovely for us, but cool for the kinder … Continue reading Fundraising for our kindergarten

I've just added a cool new … Continue reading I passed the exam

Tonight I'm celebrating some more exposure from madeit.com.au. Lucky me. Today they featured my little summer top in their Picks From the Xmas Gift Guide and the wholesale interest that has already followed has been exciting. Earlier this week one of madeit's guest bloggers featured my Christmas birds amongst her favourite handmade decorations (Little Pipika … Continue reading Nutri-grain for tea again
If blogging is talking to your customers, I should never say that I haven't had time. But a fortnight just went and slipped on by and left me talking to customers at a market on the weekend, on Facebook, and via email, but not by blogging. My apologies. Kinda rude when I put it like that. … Continue reading Talking to customers
Before we had children, back when I knew everything about parenting, I was horrified when a mother would voice her desire to give her children back for just one night. Desperate for a family, I'd wonder why they even bothered having kids if all they wanted to do was get away from them (See? There … Continue reading The Pied Piper
