Thanks Babyology for your awesome feature about us..it was a really lovely surprise.
We have an exciting week with a few things in the pipeline and our Alphabetica selling really well..YAY! Also had some lovely feedback from a health unit we had sold quite a few of our murals to awhile ago. They said the patients love them and our kiwiana stickers make the kids really happy..can't as much more than that:)
Have a great day!

DISCO !!!! Woot Woot!!

Friday, June 25, 2010

Jasper had his first school disco tonight so these are some snaps I got before the big event. Little Miss was so upset not to be going that I let her have a bit of fun before.
The Disco rocked and I am sure Mr Jasper had a great time even if he nearly did fall asleep on my shoulder and did comment on how loud the music was...bless he is such a calm soul..as for the little girl..well we will see but I am thinking right now there is nothing calm about her:)

Portrait of me up a ladder!

Just had to share this cute drawing Jasper just did for me. I am putting up new smoke alarms as I nearly burnt down the house last night..very scary!! Anyway while I was up the ladder I thought I would fix the broken light bulb in this very funky lamp shade I was given. Two minutes later Jasper had drawn this pic of me..so cute, and the lampshade looks just like this!

Lovely write up!

I am very excited about this write up in Growing up Green firstly because it is the first write up about our new Alphabetica, but also because Raquel (who is also the kids editor for Peppermint mag...which I also love), has just expressed exactly what was my intention when I made this piece. She totally got it!! And as an artist when someone who writes about your work gets it, its a good day:)
Also thanks Brittni from Papernstitch for featuring our Tia in her email newsletter this morning.
Another awesome place to visit..and I cant believe I haven't told you about already (slack) is a new blog New Zealand Handmade made up of a collective of ultra talented and amazing women who make amazing things..(I happen to be one of them:) Come over and meet everyone we would love to see you!

This is our little friend Barnaby! I was lucky enough to see this gorgeous little man being born..in fact my face was the first he saw...poor child! Anyway his Mum and Dad bought him round for a wee visit the other day..I am thinking him and Jasper will be great mates!

OMG what a drama that was!!! When I gave you all a preview a few weeks ago for our Alphabet I had NOOOOO idea how long all of the other stuff would take such as..(new photos, web page, pricing, sizes etc etc) to get it all live! Wow it has all given me a new insight into the technical stuff..as normally I do the artwork and photos and wonder why Simon is taking so long:) Si is teaching me all the techy stuff too so as I know how everything works..umm not sure I want to know, but it is good for me.
Anyway Alphabetica is now available in our Etsy shop and on our website in three different sizes for all sized spaces..hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them:)
