The disease called Perfection...

Go check out Single Dad Laughing . He has written an incredible post that I believe everyone should read.

I often forget...

I always update my Facebook page with new creations, but often forget to show my non facebooking bloggy friends. My sincerest Appologies!

Let me show you some of my most recent creations! I hope you like them :)
First there is the Lovebirds Dress...
I made this pattern up and am very proud of it! Plus I love the fabric! Have had several orders for this dress style already!
Next Ella models her dress in the same style. Her dress is perfect for tea parties!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Collection is super dooper popular!
Especially this skirt! I have even made a couple in adult sizes!

Thanks to Angelina Plum!

So a few of you have seen my new look now! I am glad you all like it! I love it!
I have finally found my niche with my sewing adventures and wanted it to be reflected in my logo.
The lovely Angela from Angelina Plum ~ Stylish Invitations redesigned my For Fun and Fancy Logo. And has done up my blog header, business cards, madeit shop banner and facebook avator.
I think she has done an outstanding job!! You can email Ang here and you can fan her facebook page here....

This is my new business card...
And this is my new price tag...

So happy with the finished result!

Playing Catch Up!

Good golly gosh!! I am a busy woman!!

I sadly wont be at the Handmade Expo this month. Here is my reason: I have over 10 custom orders and hardly any ready to go stock!!

It's very exciting that For Fun and Fancy is taken off so well!
So this month I am playing catch up, then replenishing my stocks ready for the 3 month run into christmas!!!

I hope you will still visit all my friends down at the Bundamba Turf club this saturday! It's always a fun day out!!

I'm all famous like!

For Fun and Fancy's Vintage Raggety Ann Skirt was featured on madeit's Monday New finds!

What an exciting day!

A new adventure for me!!!

So today I signed up to become an independant trader for Phoenix Trading!

I will be selling beautiful cards, gift wrap, notes, gift tags and other lovely gifts.

I am very excited about this new adventure! A little extra cash plus I can work around the kids! Perfect for me!!

So no more hairdressing afterall!! That makes me happy!

Getting restless....

Two things normally happen when I start feeling restless...

1. My blog template changes.

2. I get a new hair do.

Stay tuned...

How do they do it?

Working mum's that is....

I have been thinking about getting back into the work force lately. Mostly to support my spending habit! Hehe...

Now before you say, but you sew! Yes I do, but that has a very tiny profit margin. It's more a hobby than a job! Unless I went fully gunho with it, but I am worried that the joy will be taken out of it if I do that....

The thought of going back to hairdressing really makes me anxious. I just don't want to do it!
I have thought about doing wedding and formals only, I enjoy that. However that involves saturdays. Blergh.

I am feeling all useless. I don't know what to do!!???
