Cathy, also a mother, is the brains behind this fabulous concept. When speaking with her she mentioned that mums were over the rubbishy lolly bags, and also were not always interested in themed parties. I feel exactly the same & dread the day Hudson becomes obsessed with 'Bob the Builder', or 'Diego', but Sesame Street I will allow (It was my fave show growing up).
Not sure what to buy, the premade items are fantastic also.
Pop on over to the website and have a look for yourself, and definitely keep this shop in mind for you next birthday party.

The other week I received an email from a man called David Handerson from Korea requesting a wholesale order. He was from Korea. Having dealt with Asian customers and companies, doing importing with them I didn't think twice about it. Anyway I thought it was my lucky day & he ordered a $1000 wholesale order. Yippee!!
He requested I use his choice of shipping company "Errandex" as he said the product may get lost in transit as his apartment/working space was hard to find. I was fine with that too, as I understood that definitely happens from experience.
;As the communication continued a few things alarmed me;
1. When I googled "Erranex" the website advised it was dangerous. I wanted to check that as I wanted to see their Aust office locations so i could drop order off. When I asked where they were I was told "Southern Australia"!!!
2. He would only provide a credit card, and ignored all Pay Pal requests, and insisted I had to transact it 3 times at $299 a time.
3. The quote from his shipping company I received came to a total of AUD$498, & I quoted AUD$100 through Australia Post.
4. Lastly he wanted me to pay for shipping initially into "Western Union Money" which I also learned is a foreign exchange fund & he would pay money back to me via credit card payments.
Very strange hey???
I called my cousin who is a financial controller for a huge Australian company & obviously great with figures, international transactions & so forth. She said it sounded like I was being scammed & got me to google his email & the shipping companies email.
Well what do you know the first words that came up SCAM, SCAM, SCAM & warnings from others who had fallen victim.
To put it in a nutshell his intentions where as my cousin explained;
"There was no order. I would have transacted payment which in turn I would have lost as it was obviously a stolen credit card. Then before I found that it was stolen he would have claimed he didn't receive goods & would have been able to make a claim of some sort which would have been financially crucifying as I would have had to reimburse him, then get copped with paying back the money to the stolen credit card. So not only would I have had to pay money back I would have lost $1000 worth of stock at wholesale as we all know is a HELL of a lot, of not just money but time & effort".
I tried to make that as short as possible but wanted to let you all be aware of this as it's very exciting to get a wholesale order request. I know for sure I was thrilled, & spending the money in my mind before I had received it.
Just be cautious people.

Well here is my positive thoughts on this;
1. We will be able to do some walks on cool sunny days like today as opposed to crawling through wet grass.
2. We will be able to get in our gumboots & explore my very neglected back yard, instead of crawling through mud, & yes I will weed.
3. We will be able to go to stop at the park on our walks, as opposed to crawling in the wet again.....
If I am out of my mind please tell me.
I took a photo of him on the go last night.
Nice transfer on your tee, mmm I wonder where you got that??

But if you're around come & say hi, I love putting a face o the blogger.
The collection was designed and produced only in knits, meaning everything stretches and is extremely comfortable. The product is ageless and takes many women through all facets of their lives. It is absolutely perfect to wear casually and easy enough to dress up.
It also has a bonus as it's perfect before, during, and after pregnancy. I have worn it through all three of the above mentioned stages. I have washed it over and over again, and each time it bounces back into shape, the colour stays fresh and it's great as I DON'T NEED TO IRON ANY of it. YAY!!
I guarantee quality is fabulous, and what is being offered to you is an amazing offer.
All pieces are $20 each...Two for $35....Or 3 for $50....
In my other website is wear it all is, just click here. I have listed everything individually should you be interested. under the "Ladies fashion" tab, there are also listed two buttons under the 'Shop Bulk and Save" tab stating the above deals. (This tab is under Ladies Clearance)
All you have to do is decide which deal you would like and add to cart as you would normally do. Just make sure to advise me at checkout the STYLE, SIZE, and COLOUR you require.
Also click on the dowload in the "Ladies fashion" tab and there are photographs of the collection and the amazing mix and match outfits you can make. I have listed several but your imagination I guarantee will create more.
As I said I just wanted to let you know should you be looking for a sale.
I hope your all having a great Friday.

I am a very happy and busy Mummy to 6 kiddies. I have 2 sets of twins and 2 older children. Life from day to day is busy but there is nothing else I would rather do. My children give me the greatest joy and fulfilment anyone could realise. Being Mummy gives me stability and purpose everyday.
I have always enjoyed arts and crafts since I was a girl. My first love is illustration. I love making jewellery as it gives me the creative outlet I need but also provides me the opportunity to learn business. I have no jewellery making or business training background. I am always learning so many things in taking my jewellery business forward.
My business name is not very creative I know- Its simply my first and middle name BUT it is who I am. I am Mary Grace.
Mary Grace is handcrafted jewellery made with quality materials and craftsmanship. Its a business that is evolving and growing and still being defined. Its a business that has big ambition! Hopefully my determination and HARD WORK will take it as far as it can possibly go.
Current trends and fashion. I make fashion jewellery. In terms of personal touches - I love colour. Alot of other artisans give me inspiration through their work.
HA! Well...lets see...I have at the moment made not very many sales. Mary Grace is still in its infancy. You tell me, can I have some advice? What is the key to successful sales?
I know this much, that persistence/consistency and determination will one day make me the sales that I desire. Trying every avenue and opportunity builds exposure.
I love reading classic novels. I am not a movie/ TV person.
I would love to talk to anyone who can offer positive inspiration.
Ha! I think the more appropriate word would be "when". Luckily I love being home looking after my children "just" being Mummy.
