Website changes

We are making some changes to our website to hopefully make it easier and quicker to find our products. Lets face it, anybody with a child under the age of 5 needs to be able to shop quickly and not get lost in our site. I am trying to achieve that this weekend, between ear infections and other toddler related interruptions, so fingers crossed.

We have also just joined the BrisStyle team and will hopefully be appearing at their markets and events soon.

Have a lovely long weekend.

Facebook grrrr

I am constantly bamboozled by the amount of things you can do with Facebook. It seems just as I figure out how to do something, they change it all over again. I must say I am not a fan of the new like button. I know they think it will put less pressure on people to like your page but it just doesn't feel right to say "Welcome to all our new likers." Never mind.... I'm sure it will change again next month.

I have just added a My Etsy page to my facebook personal account. Although my brother in IT may not be too excited about my achievement, I am quite proud of myself. The next Facebook challenge is to try and set up a welcome page. I must first battle photoshop and dreamweaver before I attempt that though. I have also apparently put a site feed onto the My Etsy page from my blog. I am not entirely sure how that works or what it looks like, or as a matter of fact whether it will work, but it will just be another fun thing to play with!

I have finally taken a photo of all the colours that the Eco Elles come in. So here it is.....

Thankyou all

I big thank you to all the wonderful people who came to visit us at Mathilda's Market on Saturday. The chaos in the week leading up to the day made it seem impossible to even make it there, but after creeping away from a sick child at 2am, throwing additional boxes in the car in the morning, crossing our fingers to ensure it started and madly setting up we were off. It was so wonderful to meet people who had found us on Facebook and be able to show them our clothes up close and personal. My husband's clothes stand he made for us was just magnificent and the day could not have been better.

Now begins the fun of filling customer orders, investigating possible wholesale opportunities and of course sewing up the winter line. Perhaps there might be some sleep involved too!

Here are some pictures from the day.

Cargo cords and tigers

It has been a crazy night of cutting in preparation for the sewing marathon tomorrow. On the agenda: overalls, skirts, dying, screen-printing, lounge pants, cargos, onesies and a tiger. Not to mention endless cuddles and blowing of kisses from the little one! Oh how I love those kisses.

Don't forget to come and see all our hard work on Saturday.

Early to bed Early to rise

I am determined not to have an after midnight night tonight. Both our wholesale orders are now completed and hopefully at their destinations. It is so exciting to see you brand listed in another shop!

Now with those orders out of the way it is back to the grindstone to make sure our Mathilda's Market items are ready. My husband, who has not stayed up past midnight with me, although I am sure he is there is spirit, asked me the other day how I just keep going. I am not sure whether it is the hormonal changes after having a child, the ensuing insanity or just that my body is so used to sleep deprivation that it's the new 8 hours! Not tonight though. Only one more ball of wool, another victim of the little one's desire to feed everything to the dog, to clean up before a blissful 8 hours. I hope.......

Don't forget to come to Mathilda's Market to check out our latest range (and not the bags under my eyes)!

Lets go hunting!

The next egg has been hidden but you will need to get to know us a little better if you want to find it!

Here is a sneak peek of our winter collection Truffle Monkeys. Everything is hand crocheted, hand sewn and then worn by a very cheeky monkey!
