Is it Saturday already?

This week has been like a whirl wind each day merging into the next. I can honestly say business wise this has been my busiest week to date. I have been flat out completing orders and making replacement stock. Top this week is my creative Kids range. This is really exciting because I have been working hard on these products. I want to give children the oppertunity to be creative when ever and where ever. To take advantage of our busy schedual rather than being limited by it. And you guys are getting it. Thanks so much for making this week another step forward in where Made by Mum is going.

Winter Collection part 1

Hello all hope you are all wrapped up against the wind and rain. We have the log burning stove on its just so comforting working away with the gentle sound of the chimney and the occasional crackle, the smell is just wonderful.
I will be introducing some of my new winter lines over the next few days. First up 2 new crayon wallets both with funky retro elephants. These make terrific gifts for girls and boys think of the peace you will enjoy while they are busy colouring away. Take them with you while out and about. October break traveling or waiting at the doctors surgery.
As always I have limited numbers.
Happy Monday.

New Cat in the Hat

Hi everyone the fist week of the tattie holidays is going well the weather has been on and off but during the dry spells we have been enjoying the autumn colours and smells. Kids on scooters and me walking. I have noticed a sharp up turn in orders which is lovely you guys are getting organised ( only 10 weeks to go ) So there has been lots of cutting and piecing and sewing going on too.
I wanted to show you a new fabric option I have. I have been making up some crayon wallets with it but will be making lots of other goodies with it over the next week or so. Its so bright I love the movement in it. I am sure it will be a hit at the fairs I am attending this winter I will also be adding it to my shop selection.
Back to the sewing machine now as I have a stack of orders to work my way through.
Happy saturday.

Country Living Christmas Fair 2011

Hi everyone just a quick post I have had lots of people ask if I will be exhibiting at this years Christmas fairs. I have been invited back. But after a lot of thought I have decided not to. I had such a fab time last year that it was a tough decision but I am so caught up in orders at the moment and some secret stuff as well as some other wonderful events ( check out my side bar for details) that I just had to draw a line. I really really want to take a stand next year fingers crossed it will happen.
Happy Tuesday.

12 Weeks till Christmas

Not to panic anyone. I can't believe its the 1st of October already where did the summer go? I am still waiting on it. Maybe next year ever hopeful. So this is what my plans are for the run up to Christmas. I have some lovely shows to look forward to in November and December I decided not to do any in October to allow me to be super organised. So far I have been keeping order turnaround 1-2 days however I am already starting to feel that will slip to 2-3 days soon say next week and 3-4days the week after and so on. I expect that when I hit November what with all the shows I am doing and my international customers I will be flat out and I want to make sure that I don't have to turn anyone away. ( it did happen last year I have to sleep at some point) If you want to place on order and you know what you want please do so as soon as possible my shop has some gorgeous items many are one of a kinds. I felt terrible having to say no last Christmas.
I am getting organised myself I have already bought a couple of gifts and have a list written out it's a good feeling not to rush but consider everyone individually. I am Quite excited already.

Happy weekend.
