That's right, last chance to enter my giveaway! Quick! Blog and/or tweet for extra chances!
And the 30th November is also the end of the my sponsorship of Mel's gorgeous blog. So the introductory price on the wraps in my shop will too end. As of the 1st December they will all be $30 plus postage.
Hoping on the weekend to have a break and do some stamping with the kids. Miss D, 6, is very sick so things have been very quiet here this week. More spaces over here. And they have the nasty tummy bug too :(
Last chance peeps!
Giveaway drawn tomorrow night top end time, which could mean Saturday morning ;) xox
Not that I really went anywhere, just been so SO busy! So hopefully over the weekend I can finally catch up on emails and blog reading. I miss seeing what you all all up to :)
I have learnt some interesting lessons over the past few weeks
People really do like what I make. And will actually give me money!
My husband and kids are more patient then I even imagined.
Never EVER list something you have yet to make, as things very quickly snow ball and the next thing you know you are pulling all nighter's to finish orders! True story...
There will be people that will copy what you do and sell it. Having no understanding or appreciation for how long you have worked on something to get it right. Karma will get you. Mark my words. Note - talking about someone that I gave a wrap to as a gift, copied it and is now selling in the big town. Not those sellers on madeit/etsy etc. We are all selling different products and that is cool :)
And I heart Jacob. More then Edward. And not just because he takes his shirt off...ALOT! And yes Brooke, I know he is only 17 ;)
Firstly, thank you all so so much for all you wonderful support. Sales have been unbelievable! Seriously totally awesome! Thank you a thousand time over :)
Secondly, because of the amazing amount of sales, I'm signing out until Wednesday morning when I will have lots of new stock ready to go and a give away to celebrate my sponsorship of the delightful and talented Mel. Corrie from Retro Mummy is also a sponsor this month which is perfect as a lot of my fabric comes from her. Cutest stuff!! And she is running a fantastic give away so check it out!
So, I'll be back! Hold tight. I have even handed over my iPhone to hubby in order to keep me focused hehe!
I have read all your lovely comments and emails. Thank you :) Will get back to you asap.
Big girl is stitching...for the first time on her own!!
Little girl tracing 'Merry Christmas'
Boy one is...well...helping!
Every year I tell myself I'm not going to leave it to the last minute and every year I do! This year I haven't even done my Christmas shopping!! Think I had to be more organised last year with a new baby in the house.
What about you?
I'm I the only one starting now??
And what about Santa?
Does he bring handmade goodies in your house or store brought ones?
Wet season! Love it! Had a storm come though yesterday, first one I have been here for this year. Awesome! Sign of things to come I hope. However it didn't last long enough and then the hideous build up weather came back. If I hear one more Victorian complain about the heat down there I will scream! Try 35 with 90-100% humidity people! Sorry, that's really a what's not, oops!
Friends. Yep. I have a the greatest bunch of friends. Imaginary, bloggy and real.
Bolt. Totally awesome.
Washing. Sorting. Folding. Putting away. Gave up on ironing years ago!
The post office. What is with that?? Always lines and lines of people. Are there not enough offices? Do people not know how to pay their bills online? Why are there heaps of things within a child's reach? Even ones in the pram? And why is is easy to get in but always heaps of crap in the way so you can't get out without knocking stuff over?? Please explain Australia Post!
"Friends" who can't be bothered contacting you for your birthday. Even a happy birthday on my facebook wall will do....maybe we just aren't friends any more... :(
In other news have had another sale through madeit and one through facebook :) That totally rocks! xox
Lovely frangipani the kids gave me. Has 4 branches for 4 kids! So sweet!
So this is what 30 is...not so bad!
Thank you for all the lovely well wishes and ideas for mangos!
Unfortunately we didn't get to make any daiquiri's with this lot. I cancelled my party at home and went out with the girls instead. Family drama. But going out was a much better idea!! Just what I needed!! Six of my topendbesties with no hubbys or kids (there was one but she was so good and cute!! and I did manage a few mango daiquiri's ;)
My darling friend Carolyn totally out did herself with the cake.
A singer sewing machine!!
Pictures are a bit dark. Will post more when I have some from her camera.
See the buttons!! And there was even a needle!! Everything you need to sew. Amazing!
And me. After a few and very please with my cake and my lovely supportive friends
Oh and did I mention what Hubby gave me?? No?? Well.....
Even with major family drama, turns out I had a pretty amazing birthday.
Thanks :) xox
PS. Have also had 2 sales on made it! Yay! Play money! xox
