Hmmmmmmm where's the time going

A random picture of the little one's curls...With straight hair myself I LOVE her curls

I looked at my last few posts and realised I haven't posted anything productive in a while! Surprised?? I'm not!!! Life seems to have gotten away from me, Christmas is creeping ever close, and soon the envitable day is going to come when I have to put up the Christmas Tree.

No! I'm not a grinch, I do love Christmas, but:
Christmas Tree + 18mth + glass decorations (yes I didn't think that one through) = disaster!

I made my first tutu for a friend of a friend...she loved it and her little girl wasn't happy when it was passed on!

The kids do need an advent calendar too, so that needs to be made, and I've promised a few skirts for a friend...and then 3rd birthday party for a little girl (more tutus)

On the Chook front. They are laying and laying well! But one of them kept getting out and destroying the vege garden. We tried everything to keep her in, and she could still jump a 1.5 metre fence! So we've rehomed her. The Man About the House is happy seeing as he only wanted two in the first place! (He seems to think if I'd only go two we never would have got the trouble making 'Black Hen') So she is now the boss of someone elses hen house!

Day 21 I think I might have missed a day

What with everything going on with bj+boo Originals I forgot to post yesterday! Sorry. But I did manage to set up a fan page on Face Book (yeah yeah I know everyone's doing it). My goal for tomorrow is to get the shorts photographed and do a final sew up of the top I've created, oh and sew some more tops!

So come join me on Facebook, I'm having a giveaway when we reach 100 fans, so tell your friends.

Day 20 Introducing bj+boo ... and Houston we have a problem

I have my mall spot, I have found a cool 'cartel' bj+boooriginals store to list some products on....so thought it was about time I introducted you to my new label. All my clothes/homewares that have been pictured on here are available for sale, just email me ratamuffin (at) hotmail (dot) com for now if intersted.
Its been a hard few days, I had to come up with a shorts pattern (which wasn't too hard as Boo makes a good model, and a dress/top which was hampered by the fact that I had to bribe Blake with chocolate everytime he tried it on!)

We (The Man About the House an I) also needed a logo for my new label...with a bit of input from cyber friends, he liked his, I liked mine, we came up with the one above!

and now to the problem...

The winner of the giveaway is linked in THIS POST . Congratulations Nadine from the Nut House. But due to me not putting where she was from I've caused some confusion and another Nadine who entered thought I meant her. (My fault I should have made it clearer)

But no problem really. Can both the NADINES who entered email me at ratamuffin (at) hotmail (dot) com with their addresses and I'll send a surprise out to both of you! How cool is that, two giveaways for the price of one.
