Giddy with Giddyness!

 New Giddy Giddy clips, bags and clip holders are instore. The quality and uniqueness in design is what sets this label apart from other felt handmade styles.... it's just so clever!

... and if you love reading blogs you MUST bookmark Teri's (the designer and owner of Giddy Giddy), its always an inspiration.

The new superhero clip holder is one of my favourite's, the colours are so soft but image strong. I have put these online and if you want to check them out properly, you can find them here!

Enjoy your day! xx

loving crafternoon!

Loving these books edited by Kathreen Ricketson (instore and online).
Visually gorgeous (I drooled over every page) with each project designed by various talented Crafter's from around the world.

The projects are graded and designed for 7-12 year olds.... but great too if you enjoy making things or have just bought a sewing machine.... start those chrissie presents!

I enjoyed reading the post about the books from Little eco footprints - Tricia had an afternoon with her kids and friends and check out what they made! Adorable!

Kids Crafternoon sewing and papercraft are here online or pop in and have a read.

Need some decorating advice?

If your feeling overwhelmed with the mess in the house and feel like you need some interior advice, this book may be for you!

Terence Conran's essential series has just released Children's Rooms in Australia and we have copies instore and online. He calls it 'the back to basics guide to Home Design, Decoration and Furnishing'   and it is that I think. Great Practical advice for every room in the house, with visuals to match!
Rrp $25

Back and ready for summer!

Back at work today after being away for 5 days without the hubbie or kids.. It was heaven..... i didn't have to share, worry about the kids being too loud while out at shops or cafes and I got to sleep right though! Gosh how times change after having children....
Though every day was busy with meetings, showings, or the tradeshows, it was great to just be away without the daily routine....

I have been so inspired this trip, there were so many great new products being launched leading up to Christmas (you are going to love them) and Melbourne too is such a fantastic city. The shops, cafes, bars, each beat to their own drum and don't seem to follow a formula like you sometimes see in Sydney.

I'm expecting Big By Fiona and Minti this week. Some styles of Minti has just been uploaded onto the website so if you want to order without coming into the store, have a squizz - both ranges are so good!

I have a really early flight in the morning (I'm off to the tradeshows in Melbourne) but i just couldn't not tell you that Paperwings and Littlewings arrived and it is soooooo beautiful. I unpacked and priced all of it today and have fallen in LOVE with every piece... It's just divine.

It's the details that make this brand so special..

and horses are a definite theme this season....

I'll try and post some pictures tomorrow of Littlewings - it's their best ever! Littlewings sizes start at newborn thru to 24 months while Paperwings is size 2 thru to a size 12. and of course its all organic. Love Love LOVE it!
