Sniff. :...( Please be patient...

Working at fast as I can, but alas I cannot launch tomorrow. Booooooo.
Still waiting on labels to arrive as well as too much sewing for this
little mumum to get done in time. So I think a more realistic date of
July 30 is better. And if it's earlier, well that's a good thing.
Taking tomorrow off to just rest and refresh this tired head and then
sew sew print sew cut sew press sew sew sew. Sigh. Back to the machines.

this fire is buuuurning

Soooo, i decided that 'go live' date for the little boys range will be July 1st. this year. yipes! that's one hell of a fire i lit under my arse. so yeah, even if only half the goodies will be up on that date, the rest will follow shortly as i finish them off, and get them up on etsy. so please do bear with me as i blunder my way into being an online business. I don't even have labels yet, gah!
In the future i plan to have a stall at Mathilda's market (if they'll have me, i'm yet to apply), and in all likelihood a couple of other markets around Melbourne also. how that's going to work with a toddler i have no idea, but i'm sure we'll work it all out!

So everyone, please keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't just fall in a heap from exhaustion, and that maybe one or two things sell at least!

Until we launch, i'm going to be rather a busy busy little weasel, but i'll endeavor to post updates as and when they happen too, it's all too exciting not to share!

Toy car table

Toy car table, originally uploaded by cherry_rockette.

Someone got so excited playing with the train table in the toy store
today that I had to make him one right away. One problem- we don't
have a low table or any trains. Or any money. So I dug out a table top
we had in the shed and put it on his little dinner table and then
stuck cardboard on the top, and then right around the edge to give it
a lip so the cars don't fall off. A $5 old car track from the op shop
and some cardboard trees and tunnels and bingo! A car table! We'll
see if he likes it tomorrow when he gets up. Much better than the
floor mat while he's still young, as he doesn't yet have full pretend
play going on, so the track enables him to know where to put an drive
the cars. And he's not into trains, just the driving round part.

Snakes, originally uploaded by cherry_rockette.

We do a lot of paintig and drawing in our house and I often ask
Kingston what his picture is. This is apparently 'tssssss' which means
snakes. Maybe a spotty snake or lots of black snakes?
