A taste of what is in store....

Ok-I confess. I am a pretty hopeless blogger... I have plenty of reasons and excuses but it all comes down to one simple thing. I am time poor.

I am a wife, a mum, I work and on the weekends, I spent my "me " time (ie- when my boy is having his nap) doing something I love-sewing. By the time I have finished my latest project, I run out of time to take snaps and post on my blog.

Over the last three months, since my last stall at Billycart Markets I have been sewing up a storm in preparation for this weeks market which is on Saturday 26 June.

I have added some new items to my range, all with the same style and colour scheme, but some nappy bags or large totes and cushions. I have also created some more colourful and cheery bloomers and bibs.

Here is a taste of some of the new items I have made for next weeks market. These items will soon be available on my madeit store, etsy or if there is something you fancy, please message me.

I am looking forward to seeing some of my new friends next week- Christine from C Percy Designs, Liz from When Sarah Met Liz, Jen from Melei! It will be nice to catch up.

Have a great week.. Cassandra.

A Relaxing Crafty Weekend

Ahhh... bliss! A weekend where I did not leave the house for 48 complete hours. The only reason I left the house this afternoon was to go to the supermarket to buy milk.

Due to a weekend of not having to be anywhere or go anywhere I took advantage of nap times and pulled out my trusty Pfaff. I created and created some more.

It started with completing an order from Billycart Markets for Kylie from Butterfly Garden Hair Accessories and then got to work on a new design of a nappy bag using dreamy Michael Miller-Fly by Day Fabric for the front pockets. I also managed to personalise some white long sleeve tee's for my little boy Alex.
I have been brainstorming ideas for decoration of my next stall at Billycart Markets on 26th June.

If you interested in my new nappy bags.. please email me or stay tuned for further information as they will be listed on my Made It Shop very soon.

Billycart Markets- 27 March

Yesterday I attended my first baby & childrens market- Billycart Markets which was located at Narrabeen, New South Wales. Yesterday marked the first ever Billycart Market and a big congratulations goes to Melanie Grace of Billycart for a great day and also all the handmade retailers there. The hall looked beautiful and was busy right on opening time!

I met some wonderful ladies who made me laugh, who gave great advice, and I especially enjoyed being neighbours to Liz from When Sarah Met Liz, Chris from C Percy Designs and Jen from Melei. Hopefully I will see you again soon!

Here are some photos of my stall.

2010-Happy New Year

Happy New Year. I know that this is bit late in the year to be saying it, but January in our household was hectic to say the least!
We had an exciting christmas and our son Alex's first Birthday was 4 days after and it was the most amazing day. Unfortunately we saw in the new year to a sick 1 year old... Poor Alex was on medication for a month. From Tonsilitus to Ear Infections, but the end of this month we had all had enough of illness. Even I ended up on a course of Antibiotics catching a throat infection from Alex.
But anyway onwards and upwards I say!

We have spent the month settling back into work, the changing sleep patterns of a 1 year old and trying to somewhat get our house organised. You all know that type of motivation you get when a new year starts that sometimes only lasts for a few weeks!

I have spent some of the month filling some orders I have had and now onto new ideas and working on existing designs. I am looking at some markets in a few months. Possibly March we may kick off on those!

Here is a picture of my little boy's first birthday party.
