What a Splendour-iffic Weekend

Well, it's over for another year.

Earlier this week I returned from my annual pilgrimage to the amazing Byron Bay for Splendour in the Grass. A 2 day festival packed with music from around the globe and great food and market stalls.
As usual I shopped like a maniac in town......spending a small fortune at Essentially Byron.....the best bubs & kids shop in the WORLD!! Got some amazing little jumpers, for the boys, from the 'Orbit Kids' label. I think my boys own every single item ever released by Orbit Kids!!

We enjoyed fantastic breakfast every day, sitting on the comfy couches at 'The Balcony'. What a shame it has to end.

Oh well, now it's back to reality. Unfortunately for me, reality at the moment is sick kids! YAY!

Can't wait for next year!!

Spring Summer Inspiration

A few months ago, I completed my designs for the Boodabubs spring/summer range. This is the first time I have actually designed a complete range of designs that will be available through the entire season. My inspiration for the range came from photos of my sister & I when we were young. We were always dressed in the cutest little 70's clothes that, to me, captured the essence of being a child. Although my fabrics are a little more modern, the design concept is the same......cute kids clothes made for fun in the sun!

To look at the range reminds me of a summer fruit bowl.....strawberries, kiwi fruit, mango.....so cute, I want to eat them!

So, after a long few months of design, patterning, cutting & sewing we are almost ready to photograph and I can hardly wait!!

Spring/Summer Range almost ready!!

I am finishing of the last few garments of my Spring/Summer range this week for our photo shoot next week. I can't wait!

In the meantime, I am also trying to keep adding new stock to the store. Finished this off today, in between the chaos of life with 2 toddlers.

Spoke too soon!

Okay, it appears that I spoke too soon regarding our delightful weather. Today is freeeeezing. It's nice in the sun but the wind is icy! So cold that Jayden is still in bed at 10am....dead to the world!!

Unfortunately though, the yardwork still needs doing. Kyan has been helping dad in the yard......playing with worms dug out of the garden. Now they are onto the pool cleaning. One of those jobs that needs doing year round, even though it only gets used for about 6 months of the year.

Anyway, while they are cleaning I can get some sewing done. Will blog again later regarding sewing. xx

I know I've already blogged today but I couldn't resist raving about the amazing weather on the Sunny Sunshine Coast today.

We have just spent all morning lazing on the beach and it was actually HOT in the sun! We always have lovely days in winter but not quite this warm......though the water is about minus 10.....maybe a slight exaggeration!.

Anyway, not complaining. Just sharing some pics of my little men enjoying the day.

....and, yes, they are wearing matching wetsuits!! They only had one colour when I got them....I know they'll hate me for it when they're older. hehehe


Every morning I wake up thinking I can make it through the day without my caffiene fix.....and everyday I fail miserably.

I think back to when I used to make a fresh juice every morning and the only time I would have coffee was when I needed to stay awake and bounce off the walls for the next 12 hours. Now it has no such affect on me, it merely keeps me awake!
Anyway, the reason I am bringing this up is because on 30 June, my sister and I completed the sale of our cafe in Maroochydore.

Firstly, this means no more FREE coffee which is a catastrophe. It also means that I don't have that 'I can always go back to' option in the background. We've sold shops before but this was our LAST ONE. No more juice bars or cafes.

Perhaps it's time to give up coffee.......after I pop down to my local cafe and grab a flat white!
