Hugglets Bears are increasing in numbers!!!!

Hi all. Its Tuesday!!!!!Happy Tuesday morning!!!

I have had a busy week so far and it only the start of the week. Children unwell with asthma and hayfever plus a  hospital visit last night. All ok now. However we are still shaking a bit with a few aftershocks from Friday's earthquake.  They are predicting that we will have another big one next week!!!! that is a bit scary!

Well back to the bear business.  I have been sewing up a storm of bears for the Hugglets and Paris shows.

The elephants are still making up their minds on their outfits so hopefully will be back for their dress rehearsal on Friday.

Look who arrived after the earthquakes on Friday. Two beautiful polar bears. First there were 2 and before I knew it they had multiplied to 4.

How would you like them accessorised ?

Off to make more see you on Friday

Distrupted Day - Earthquake City

Well, you never know when things are going to happen you have no control over, so when a big earthquake hit Wellington this afternoon we went into survival mode, checking on each other and all our families.  Fortunately we have not sustained any damage and everybody is okay.

So that put a little blip on our planned post today which will now come out on Monday.  However, exciting news we were featured on one of Set Up Shop colleagues Fabulous Find Friday Blog today. 

You can check it out here at Creatively Yours Bub and Me :

So as you can imagine we are all in a bit of a spin.

Catch you again Monday with an update on how things are in this shakey city and expecting to have some exciting new things to show you.

What a week!

Hi everyone, its been one of those weeks with lots going on.  It still doesn't stop Tracey from having some great design moments and in due course you will see what she has been working on. 

We have been busy working on our Christmas ideas and I am sure you will be pleased with the results when they start appearing on the table.  Isn't it great when the creative juices have an opportunity to flow?

The other exciting thing to happen this week is that we have been featured as Designer of the Week on Kid Independant. We are very proud of the article they have written about us. Please check it out when you have a chance by hitting the link above.

I have been busy with my knitting with some new combinations being tried out.  Let me know what you think? 

A rose between the lavender?
