New womens business venture

My poor old blog has been neglected terrible lately, and there isn't much I can do about it.
But I am venturing back.
I have been so busy working in collaboration with 8 other women.
We call ourselves "mums biz", we are a passionate, imaginative and talented group of mums have come together to present an amazing range of products for your children - aged 0 to 8 years.
We meet monthly meeting/catch up (yes food & wine involved) to discuss ideas, issues we may be having with our business, help each other out with solutions, ideas, suppliers and anything else related.

My absence has to be blamed due to a work in progress with these girls. We have all started a 'Party Plan' business together based on the concept "We bring the boutique to you". My role has been helping in the design of the catalogue which will be a 43 page glossy brochure featuring everything we all make. So far we have had huge interested amongst all of out immediate circle of friends, as well as other mums wanting to become "Party Representatives'. It's going to be a fabulous opportunity for us to all have a retail presence without a shop front and dependant on online sales.
I will be posting more about this very soon and would love to introduce you to all of these amazing women. If you get a chance please check out the website to see all of the great brands involved, and please follow our blog for amazing product releases, and news.

A whole new way of sitting in a pram

As I had the Yarraville Market this weekend, the pram was out of the car and has been inside, due me loading the boot up. This has resulted in Hudson having a ball pushing it around the house, even though his direction is a little off. He has also discovered he can pull it over and find a brand new way of sitting in it. Who would have thought he would be so content sitting in it when normally he hates being constricted to it.
Once again of course he's happy it's on his terms!!

Circus Series - Set of 3 prints

I love the whole circus theme, it really does take you into another world, the feeling of excitement, the magic, the tricks, clowns, animals, and of course the sound of the ring master. I look forward to when Hudson is old enough to sit through a whole show so I can watch is face change with the expressions of amazement, anticipation and sheer joy.
I am offering my artwork in mini series, consisting of the larger 8x10" and a set of three 4x6" options. I posted Monday the first of my circus series and today I complete it by posting the co-ordinating set of three 4x6" designs.

Come to the Circus

Brand New!! I have decided to add my art to the Tiges and Weince Collection.
As part of my Circus Collection for Summer, this is my first piece of artwork that I have ever offered for sale. It very exciting and I have found so much in creating it. It is now available in my etsy store now, and also my australian website this week.

My first Halloween contribution

If it wasn't for Etsy I probably wouldn't really think twice about Halloween.
It does however look like such a fun time of year, for everyone I would assume not just the kiddies. The spookiness, the costumes, trick or treating the neighbours, the face paint, walking with your friends house to house.
My parents never really let me trick or treat hence maybe that's why I have never really thought much of it. I will admit I always got very cranky with them over it.
I am curious though, what's it all about? The history? I think I best have a little look into it.
I have made one of my bags especially for Halloween, it can be used for anything and will carry lots of lollies for those trick or treaters preparing themself for spooks and adventures.
