No I have not been drooling over the girls rooms on Pottery Barn again, this time I have been looking at Rate my Space for inspiration and ideas for decorating my children’s rooms.   Somehow I am way laid by the nursery section and the cuteness that abounds.


I came across Happy Canvas, Hip Kid Art recently, I have not had a chance to have a good look yet as they are temporarily closed over the Christmas period, however what I saw on the front page was impressive, and I can’t wait to see the rest of their work.


Holly Chic are one of the few places I have been able to find gorgeous handmade bedding for children that is not Whinnie the Poo and the likes.  They are a New Zealand brand and have a store on Etsy and their own site www.hollychick.nz.com.  In choices of gorgeous designer fabrics, you are bound to find something you like.

 Kuti Babies is a new online store that specialises in making the very cute Kuticoons.    Kuticoons are the creation of two mums, Tina & Kristi and they are a fantastic alternative to a traditional wrap.

Hmm I wonder, do they come in adult sizes they look so snuggly?

I recently spent 5 minutes chatting to Tina and here is what she had to say:

What inspired you to start your business?

When having our babies at the hospital we put our brand them in the cocoon and various Doctors, midwives and visitors commented saying how it was a fabulous idea.  A  few months after having a babies and finding we were still getting comments out and about and the fact our babies were still using them,  we thought we should do something about that and thus we started Kuti Babies.  We both love making them so it was a natural choice for us!
What was your first sale?
Our first sale was through Ebay.  We thought we would test the waters and we were really happy to find that people actually buy them. We also received some brilliant feedback on the cocoon .  We were so happy! 
What is your biggest seller?
The Cocoons are our best item, they are unique, practicle, comfy and fashionable!
What item couldn’t you live without?
These days it would be my sewing machine and my knitting tools for the cocoons.  This is how I relax at night, making these beautiful cocoons, I love seeing the end product.
What is on your christmas wish list this year? 
All I want this year is to see my children happy and healthy!… maybe a few scrapbooking items kicked in would also do the trick! 🙂
