The end and the beginning...

 It has been very very quiet for quite some time now around here as it has been far too difficult for me to keep up with website, social media, sewing, blogging, working, mothering and life so I have let it go unmanned and unposted on for quite sometime. 

For me this has been hard, because I love to blog, I love to look back at what I have done and have a bit of a record of my sewing progress, and back at the things that I was doing say, 12mths ago etc. I also love the blogging community, and the friends I've started to make through it and the blessing that has been through the last few years has been amazing.

So… after a good hard think about blogging, consistency, and of course, general web geography, I have made the decision to make the move over to wordpress and combine my blog with my website.

My new blog is called making, markets, mothering (& the meandering inbetween), and I'd love it if you could check it out.There are a few bugs that I am still working out (such as a subscribe button) and I'd love to see you over there so I can continue to be involved with the crafty blog community and keep in touch with the friends I have made within it.

So for "sew miss amy" this is the end, but for my new blog, it is just the beginning and I really hope you will share the journey with me.

This Friday's Freebies!!

Hello Hello!

Just so we are all informed... This week's Freebie will be as follows :)

For every All In Two Nappy purchased, you will receive a free snap in booster pad. (it already comes with one too, so you will have an extra one on hand for when the shell is dry before the booster!) That's for every nappy purchased too, so buy 1 AI2 and get 1 extra booster, buy 15 AI2's, get 15 extra boosters, you get the idea. (The offer DOES NOT apply to bulk packs though) This is on top of your already existing Nappy Hunt Discount of 20% Good reason to register if you haven't already. 

PS, something I never realized about the nappy hunt before I actually registered the first time... ITS FREE GUYS!!! 

And don't forget that for every purchase from the shop this week and also every newsletter subscription you will get an entry into the lucky draw. (this week the lucky draw will be drawn on Saturday Morning as I am working night shift on Friday night, the cut off for entries will still be Friday though!!)

For more info and all the T's and C's head to this post and have a read, any Questions send me an email :D

Some Info for Friday...

September is usually a big month for us. There's a few reasons, such as the nappy hunt, the cloth nappy expo in Casey, we come out of general hibernation as springtime hits and its more inviting to head to markets, and usually reusable nappy week is on during the month also. So in light of all of this, I thought, what a better time to celebrate and have decided to run a promotion for the month called Freebie Friday!

The basic idea of Freebie Friday is that you guys get free stuff! Not rocket science, but there are a few details to Freebie Friday that I thought I would outline...

On Freebie Friday, customers of WeePantz can get Free Stuff in 2 ways...

1. For every purchase on Fridays during September customers will receive a FREE GIFT! 
The gift will change each week, and will be limited to one per customer, per week. You may need to purchase a particular item to redeem your gift (e.g. buy a, AI2 nappy and receive a free extra booster etc)

2. I will also be giving away a FREE GIFT every Friday during the month of September also. 
The gift will change each week, and the winner will be drawn by my little miss 6yo out of a hat on Friday evenings at 6pm. To get an entry you simply have to buy something from WeePantz during that week or Sign up to our Newsletter during that week.

I'll announce on Wednesdays and then remind on Thursdays what the free gift will be and also what the giveaway will be.

All the Conditions:

Each week, the free gift and also the giveaway prize will be decided upon by Amy (that'd be me).

The free gift will only be redeemable on Fridays from 12.01am until 11.59pm.

The free gift will only be able to be redeemed once per week per customer ( no cheating guys! ) and will be automatically added to your order (you wont need to click a button etc)

The free gift draw will be conducted on Fridays at 6pm via being drawn from a hat and will be filmed and the video uploaded for viewing with the winner announcement.

The free gift draw can only be entered via the ways above. The free gift draw can be won by someone who has already purchased and redeemed a free gift from the store on that day.

I reserve the right to change the rules of the competition at any time during the month.

The free gift cannot be claimed by a known retailer of WeePantz products and cannot be resold at retail price for personal profit or gain.

Those Little Cheesecakes

As I said last week, I had some lovely time off and actually ended up doing some baking.

These little cheesecakes were really yummy and I was aided very much when making them by a new pan I bought from the general trader.

How awesome is that? The bottom just pops up and your little cake doesn't get ruined from turning it out. ( I have smashed many a cake this way! ) The pan also holds 12, which I think made this so much easier cos I didn't have to do it in batches.

Anyway, I'm going to stop sounding like an infomercial and go do some housework, today is my last day off!

Fab Friday...

Today I am finalizing a mending job for a lovely lady I met through the Australian Nappy Network.

It's okay Katrina I haven't forgotten you, the elastic in your nappies is nearly finished!!

I am also working on some of those things I said I would do for my week off.

I bought this pattern a couple of years ago at the op-shop, its an old spotlight "get creative" pattern. 

Its a very basic pant, and once I've tested it out and know that it fits well, I will add pockets, belt loops and other lovely pants essentials that aren't included in the pattern paper. I have enough fabric here for 3 pairs of pants and have one pair cut, interfaced and ready to sew up later today.

I also have to re-make a batch of mini cheesecakes. I decided (and mentioned on facebook) that I would make some mini cheesecakes for calisthenics morning tea (for the mums) on Saturday. The Mr stole 3 from the batch for himself and the guys at work yesterday and today took the rest of the batch cos they all wanted more! So I'm looking forward to making a bunch of little cheesecakes today too. I also bought an awesome tool to help me when I am baking them (trust me, when I tell you about this, you will be excited and want one!)

What are you guys up to this lovely Friday? Are you mending? Baking? Sewing? Painting? Relaxing? I'd love to hear what you are up to!
