Happy Birthday!

On Wednesday it will be my son’s 1st Birthday, I can hardly believe where the time has gone.

An email tonight from a lady looking for an outfit for her very cute big blued  girl on her 1st birthday has prompted my blog tonight, and so I have been on the search for outfits to make that big day just that bit more special.


Rock Your Baby create a very hip and ultra cool range of clothing, I love their funky dresses.  This one is Madame Butterfly from the party frocks range.


Townmouse create this gorgeous gypsy style dress.  In choice of sweet fabrics it would make a cute party dress.


At La la baby you can find this funky reversible Bo Peep Dress.  Being in black and red makes it an absolute stand out in terms of a party dress.  But don’t worry if these colours aren’t your thing there are more available.


A dress good enough to eat from All You Need, the Samba Dress in Baby Cakes.


We can’t forgot those little boys, and here is a cute 1st Birthday T-shirt from Ollie Rose.


Mini Mermaid are a range I came across in my search tonight.  These gorgeous dresses are created from Vintage material and are manufactured in QLD.

Sadly I have to leave it there tonight, but I am sure I can find many more.  Unfortunately I am yet to come across a big range for little boys, but am very excited as I should be receiving my custom made outfit for my little boy from Ollie Rose on Monday.

PS – and stay tuned, would you believe I managed to attempt some handmade Christmas decorations from the BH&G Magazine and they grace my Christmas tree as well as the ones my friend Bree made for us.

Over the past week or so I have gotten back into baking and as such each day I tend to go up to school with flour on the back of my jeans and all manner of bits and blobs stuck to my shirt (yes I am usually running late so tend to forget to check my appearance before leaving the house).

I think it is about time I got myself an apron, so I can avoid those floury hand prints on my backside.

I tried googling, but so far am yet to unearth something I like or many aprons at all.  I have found plenty of cute ones for kids, which of course I will do a feature on.

So if anyone knows of anyone, or make them, please spam me and save me from further public embarrassment when I leave the house.

Besides getting an early start on my Christmas shopping, I am one of those people that loathe anything to do with Christmas until December.  In the newsagents the other day I saw the cover of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine and felt a little decorating pang.



I always buy these magazines, thinking ohhhh I can make that.  I came across the very cute colour Christmas wreath and thought yeah that would be cool, read the instructions, found out I need to cut out at least 40 odd butterflies and my interest was lost at that point.  I love handmade items, just not those made by me 🙂

So this year why not give a gift that is truly unique and choose a handmade one.  If you are clever unlike me, why not something you have made, or how about something by someone else who is clever.

Here are few of my favourite picks to pop under the tree this year at Christmas just to get your started.

Since popping Handmade Kids on the Top 100 WAHM sites of Australia list I have not had a chance to have a look around and browse some of the other stores that are on the list, today I finally manged a quick look.

I had intended to feature everyone that had handmade items for kids, but once I started click there were quite a few more than I realised, so I have just picked a few to show you today.


Chantilly Bowtique is the home of handmade hair accessories, you will find everything from bows to headbands, including this one which perfect for Christmas.


All You Need stock a big range of handmade items, including their own label TikiBoo Kids.  I was trying to choose what my pic would be when I came across this sweet Christmas skirt, so just had to pop it in.  But I just have to include something else as there are so many sweet outfits as well.


This is the Cha-Cha Dress in Waterlily Pink from All You Need.



Boodabubs are another online store selling handmade children’s clothing and this Maui summer set would be a great one for the little grommet at heart.


My Little Tees creates a range of cute personalised shirts. 



At Knitspirations you will find the cutest little booties.


Kidz Funky Designs is another store that specialises in hair accessories for your little one.

I know I have not featured everyone, so if you missed out and would like a mention, please let me know, otherwise it might be some time before I pop back again for another look at Top 100 WAHM sites of Australia.

If you are looking for bright and colourful artwork and stationary then I don’t think you can go past Crackers Art.  

Upon entering Crackers Art site you will find a fun and fabulous place to explore.

Sarah creates a really vibrant and fun range of paintings.  There are so many designs, colours and animals available it is certainly hard to choose only a few.

These notebooks would be the perfect little gift to pop in a party bag or in the Christmas stocking this year and you can even team it up with a matching magnet or bookmark.


And even better some of those cute little characters are also available as plushie toys.


You can keep up to date at what is happening in Crackerland at Sarah’s blog.
