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......
