She makes me laugh...

My daughter lily is my little model for tippietoes and i was trying to get her to pose for some new items i got in and some of my headbands but she had other things on her mind...like vegie sandwiches... she makes me laugh every day (as does my 2.5 year old with his singing!!) and it makes me thankful to have this little business where i get to see moments like these.... i hope they make you smile too :)
i know my little princess is hiding in there somewhere....maybe tomorrow :)

Mr and Mrs HomeOwner

Just had to do a quick update as today was a huge day for my little family.. we became homeowners! We are so excited to have found a new little place to call our own! My 2 year back log of real living magazine will now be put to good use!! (i LOVE that magazine!!)

I also visited kids in style today and met some lovely and talented people and am very excited to be bringing you some gorgeous creations over the coming months i think you will love! I know i fell in love several times over... some of the products were too cute to resist and are a great fit with the tippietoes brand....stay tuned!!

Holly Hobbie is also coming to visit very soon, i received my gorgeous parcel from Twiglet today and can't wait to get them up for you to see :)

Another special thanks to Elizabeth at La Toriana for stocking tippietoes enchanted tutu and pink lace singlet, her willingness to share her wealth and knowledge has been greatly appreciated!

I have just put up a few more one offs after the success of the Mum's Grapevine mail out...this is a great service for all you mums... i was probably the last one to know about it..they send email alerts every week on sales of everything to do with baby... great! I do love shopping!!

Well back to celebrating my new 25 year relationship with the bank!!
Stay tuned for more exciting products... i will send a newsletter out to all the web site subscribers.

Well very exciting.. tippietoes own range is now featured on La Toriana http://www.latoriana.com.au/

A huge thank you to Elizabeth who has been so very sweet and helpful over the last month since we first came in contact. It has been a fast and hectic learning curve for me and i am excited to be starting my TAFE classes next week to get me up to speed with patterns and finishes etc so i can create some vintage inspired pieces to offer you all :)

The enchanted tutu and purity white tutu are exclusive to Elizabeth at the moment so be sure to grab one. They will bu up on http://www.tippietoes.net.au/ in the not to distant future... a lot of love and time goes into these handmade pieces so i can't pump them out that fast :)

My daughter Lily turns one in a few weeks so i am going to be busy organising her little butterfly party and her uncle (who has never met her) return home from the UK which we are all excited about.

I am currently putting together all my ideas for a summer 08/09 collection.... i love summer clothes so much more than winter!! And i am also sourcing some extra special pieces for the site from around the globe.... the US dollar is making life very difficult!

Thanks to all my customers for their lovely feedback, i am glad you all love your products, i love hearing from you all.

Don't miss out on the summer sale! http://www.tippietoes.net.au/shopping-cart/sale/ some great bargains... especially for lovers of the IVY DESIGNS range... one of my favs :)

Till next time.... enjoy the heat wave!
