I'm still here....

Wow, where does the time go??? 

I have been so busy since releasing the Spring/Summer line that my poor blog has been very neglected.  I have been trying to keep the facebook page up to date, mainly because it's a little easier to do quickly.

Anyway, I'm here now!!

Thought I would pop up a couple of pics from the Spring/Summer photo shoot.  I haven't had much of a chance to add to the range due to a bunch of custom orders.

Tiny top & Skirt Set

Springtime Dress

Surf's Up Set

I will update with some more Boodabubs goings on in the next week or so.

Until then.....

Spring is on the horizon.....

.....even though it's still freeeeeeeezzzing here on the sunny Sunshine Coast, I am busily preparing my Spring/Summer line in preparation for a summer of market stalls!!!!  Now that I have left my 'real' job, I am getting stuck into Boodabubs.

This years Spring/Summer will bring fresh fabrics and fun designs. 

For the Girls.....The TINY TOP is back for it's third year but with a cute twist.  Some simple girls bright, SUMMER SKIRTS which will come with APPLIQUED SINGLETS for a complete outfit.  Of course, it wouldn't be Boodabubs without some new fabric PARTY PANTS and we will also have some new fabrics for the GIDGET dress which was popular last year.

For the Boys.....The KOMBI Summer Set will of course be available in some groovy new fabrics teamed with summery singlets.  The GROMMET summer set will also be back in some new fabrics.  There will be short sleeve T's and singlets available with funky Appliques for little groovers.

For Bubs there will be some little BUM BUMS BLOOMER singlet sets!
I am aiming to release new items mid August so stay tuned. Prototypes are made and ready for photographing so won't be long now :)

Not long of winter to go...yipppeeeeee!!!

Boodabubs....vege patch

We are all very excited to see our first little broccoli growing in our garden.  We used to grow them when we lived on the farm....pre-kids....but we've not planted them at this house until now.  We are lucky, after much time and effort, to have 2 boys who actually enjoy eating broccoli and have it every night.  Although we buy organic, I still prefer to be able to pick it from our own organic garden right before cooking for maximum freshness.  Can't wait!!!

The chilli bush is growing out of control.  Rohan cut it back last week and there's still about 2 million chillies on it!

And, much to the kids excitement, the Blueberry tree has fruit which will be ready soon.  Yay for me, I won't have to pay $9.00 for a punnet :)

I have been thinking lately how much I would really like to get some chooks.  We are only on a suburban block but we only have neighbours on one side and a huge bush reserve behind us.  It would be nice to get a couple of laying hens to scratch around the yard.  A pet that doesn't require too much maintenance nor much time from an already very busy family.  Hmmmmm, will think about it a little longer......

We finally MADE IT!!!

Finally.....Boodabubs has set up a Made It store front.

Another avenue open for purchasing Boodabubs goodies.  Pricing is the same and shipping costs the same however it should help more people discover the wonderful world of Boodabubs.
I decided, now that I am leaving my 'real job' that I am ready to push forward with Boodabubs and can finally give it the time I have so been wanting to.  One and a half weeks until I finish up and can get stuck into Boodabubs.

We will also be selling our products throug a great new site Yellow Brick Road Market.  We will be one of the early sellers on this market but it is sure to become the next big place for all things handmade.  The lovely Prue is keeping control over items being sold to ensure minimal double up and maximum variety!

We should be up and running on Yellow Brick Road Market this week sometime.

Come and check out what else is on offer!

The Boodabubs Garage Sale begins on Facebook at 7pm this Friday 18th June.  In addition to the MEGA bargains being sold....we are giving away some extras.

Spread the word about the garage sale .....if a new 'liker' tells me you referred them you could win.....

New 'likers' must comment somewhere on the 'wall' or on the blog here, the name of the person who told you about the garage sale. Both new 'liker' and referrer will go in the draw to win! Anyone who also becomes a blog follower will get an extra entry. 
Eg...If you already 'like' the facebook page and you refer a friend who becomes a 'liker' of the facebook page and a 'follower' the blog....you get one entry for the facebook like, your friend gets 2 entries for doing both.  If you become a blog follower aswell, you will get 2 entries. 
Please note...maximum entries is 2 per person.  You do not get an entry for each friend simply for a friend.
ENTRIES CLOSE 8AM SATURDAY MORNING.  I will be creating entries based on your wall/blog comments so if you don't leave a comment before 8am Saturday, you won't be entered.
Good Luck

Not sew well.....

All is on a 'go slow' here in Boodabubs land.

The cold weather has taken it's toll and I am suffering.  The kids are fine, Rohan is fine...just me...the one who has to look after everybody else!!  This has been going for weeks now but it has finally hit me for a six.

This week I have stopped boxing and running to completely rest and recover.  Eating whole garlic cloves and drinking ginger tea by the gallon.

Everytime I enter my sewing room I am rather anxious and frustrated.  Aside from finishing off some custom orders I just don't have the energy to start (or finish) anything.

Anyway, off to bed for me. Hopefully I will wake up feeling better....
