Getting ready

Here are a couple of clips that will be coming with me on the journey to the market in Glenbrook on Saturday 16th July.
I am returning to Glenbrook after a four month break, and I must say, that I am looking forward to going back there. Not the freezing cold early morning start mind you, but the experience of the day. The natter that Emma and I have, she is my market buddy, she is the designer/maker behind Chitter & Chatter, and seeing our "regulars", the people that come and visit us every market, whether it be to pick up something new from us, or just to pop by and say hello. Both Emma and I love these little interactions and look forward to them each and every time.
I am looking forward to seeing you all up in the beautiful Blue Mountains on Saturday, don't forget to drop in and say hello. Any of you who stop by and let me know that you follow me on my blog will receive a free little gift!

Felt necklaces at Purely4Kids

Here we are inside on a very windy, wintery Sydney day. As my mum says, "it's a good washing day"...but that is about all the kids and I can manage to do today outside.

It really is a day for staying in, and maybe doing a bit of blogging, playing with play-doh, colouring-in, baking, and maybe even some buying from the latest great kids website, Purely4Kids 

Today I wanted to share with you these felt necklaces that I have for sale over at Purely4Kids, a website that is supporting local Australian designers and makers, and providing fabulous products "for babies, teens & in-betweens"
Please follow the link I have provided and see what this fabulous new website has to offer. There are a whole range of beautiful products to peruse, not just Nanny Kate.

Edie and Marty

Meet the latest additions to the Nanny Kate family, finger puppets 'Edie the Elephant' and 'Marty the Monkey'. And no, I haven't forgotten to add an extra 'd' in Edie. She is a...well...a 'she', and has been named after my best friends little girl Edie.
Ever since the day this little girl arrived into the world, (a whole 13 days before my boy Jack), I have fallen in love with the name, and also this very wonderful little girl. She is such a gorgeous girl who is stacks of fun, and we are looking forward to catching up with her and her yummy mummy during these school holidays.
You see, before Jack and Edie started school they were pretty much inseparable, we spent on average one day a week together the four of us, the kids and us two mums. We shared endless cups of tea, coffee, and juice, many cupcakes and bikkies, and all sorts of other mischief.
Hope you all enjoy the school holidays and find some time to catch up with the people you love the most but maybe haven't had much of a chance to spend time with in the last few months.
