New Range for the New Website Soon to be Launched!

It seems like a lifetime since I posted on the blogsite.  So much has happened in that time.  Besides catching the horrible flu that seems to be going around, I have also managed to get the photo shoot done of the up coming Summer Range for the new website which I am hoping to launch very shortly.  I am excited to add a sneak peek of what is to come. I was stoked at the way the photos came out.  Thanks to Mel from Meloo Photography for a great job.  Especial thanks to those wonderful models who came and strutted their stuff on the day!  I am also excited to say that we had our first premmie babies come and model for us.  I am offering a custom made service for premmie nappies on request.

Thailand Trip

I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted a blog.  So much has happened....  My family and I took a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand for three weeks to see my dad and do a spot of well deserved shopping.  What can I say it was such an exciting trip.  The Thai people are beautiful people, always happy and always so helpful.  I couldn't believe how much they loved Amelia.... everyone, women, men and children were mesmorised by her and just felt the urge to always touch her!  Dad assures me that it is because not many foreign people (frangs - as the Thai's say) bring their babies with them when they visit Thailand.  

So what did we do while we were there, I hear you say????  Like most people who visit Thailand we shopped till we dropped!  The good old shopping centres, the night markets and more night markets.  I couldn't believe how great the bargins were and how well Amelia coped with us walking around in 38 degree heat till 11pm most nights.  Of course we had to buy a bigger suitcase to bring all the things home!

Besides shopping we managed to get to see some of the interesting sights around Dad's house.  One of the days we took a trip up to the Tiger Kingdom where we actually got to go in and pat the baby cubs and lay on the medium size tigers.  This was an experience that I won't forget in a hurry.  The same day also saw
us visit the Hill Tribe Villages.  We managed to meet some of the Karen Tribe - the ladies who where the gold rings around their necks.  I got to try on half a set of rings.... how heavy were they!!!!  After lunch, we went to the Masea Elephant Park - saw the elephant show, patted them and were patted by them and then had an elephant ride... Michael will tell you all that I was scared stiff of falling off, and he would be right.

It's Been Way Too Long!

It seems like forever since the last time that I posted on the blog.  So what have I been up to???  I finally bit the bullet and bought a website.  I have spent countless hours working on the website which we are going to be launching late next month.  Along with the new website, I enjoyed my recent shopping trip to purchase the new fabrics for the summer ranges.  I have decided after much deliberation that I will be making collections of nappy covers rather than a bit of this and a bit of that!  I can't wait to see how they all look.  I made the first one of the summer range up tonight and can't wait for Amelia to wake up in the morning to try it on her and see how it looks! 

Along with finding new materials; Michael, Amelia and I are preparing for our big trip to Thailand.  It is only 2wks away and there is so much to do!  Besides spending some well deserved time resting and visiting my dad, I also have another more pressing and exciting task at hand once I am there.  Searching for new and different fabric!  I need to fill an order and a special request for natural fibers (Sara - I am on the job!).

Orders have also taken up much of my time lately.  Along with sewing as much as I can, we have all had that dreaded bug.... snotty noses and sore throats were what you were greeted at the door with this week!  It started with Amelia then she so lovingly passed it on to me and well we couldn't be a true family if we then didn't pass it on to Michael.  As my sister told me and I was to find out the hard way - "Mum's don't get sick days!"  Oh how true she was!  So when Michael had a sick day from work, he also found out that daddy's don't get sick days either!  My little girl turns 1 in a months time so before I go I also have to organise her birthday as it is the week we come home!  Just thought I would post a photo of my gorgeous girl who is growing up way too fast.

I will try and post a sneak peak at the new nappy covers once the photos have been taken!
