A lot of you might know (or not) about the Cloth Nappy Hunt that happens bi-annually here in Australia.

How it basically works is you register for the hunt and then during the month of March you hunt around sponsors' stores looking for the much coveted hunt icon and click on it. There are various prizes for collecting icons that are distributed daily. Basically you have to be the first person to find them all!

There are also LOTS of discounts on sponsors' websites to be had during the month of the hunt.

Anyway, the reason I am talking about the hunt? WeePantz has been approved as a sponsor for the hunt in March 2011. Hooray! So I will be donating a Red Minky AI2 Nappy as a prize as well as having 15% off store wide for hunters (you will receive a special code when the hunt starts if you are registered).

So head over to Diaper Decisions and register to hunt as the sponsors of the day (special pre-hunt hunting!) has begun today!!

My Creative Space

Today I am very busy working on some customer orders and some stock for the Fairy Floss Market in St Kilda on Sunday.

Due to still being alone... I have lots of time to work which is lovely. 

I have been spending the last few hours working on a custom nappy for a customer. It was a tough muse, but I think it is finally coming together.

Just a little sneaky peek there. 

Now I'd better get back to sewing the midday movie is over so I am free haha... (don't worry, I was working while I watching it too... kinda...)

What are you creating today?

For more creativity head over here...

Which is YOUR Favourite?

I hope its me!! WeePantz has been nominated (and not even by me!! :p) in the Babble Best Cloth Diapers List

I feel stoked that someone else has nominated me, and would love it if you could all spare a few seconds to find me on the list and vote for me also :)

Thanks very much!

Market Prep Friday...

I feel like I am a day ahead of myself today as my market is tomorrow rather than on Sunday this week so I am busily cutting, snapping, sewing and re-threading.

Okay so the re-threading I am really procrastinating as I have to re-thread the upper looper on my over locker with Wooly Nylon... ugh not an easy task!

 (okay so it doesnt look like there are many bibs here, but trust me, there are!)

Ahh anyway... so I am busily preparing for the market tomorrow at Werribee Park. I have given the weather a stern talking to that it is not to rain tomorrow as I am doing my first outdoor market since November.

The Market is at Werribee Park, which is on K Road (its where the zoo and the werribee mansion are) and it runs from 9am til 2pm. The weather tells me that its going to be a lovely day too :)

So make sure you head on down to the market, there will be lots of beautiful handmade goodies on offer as well as some great specials at the WeePantz Stall!

See you there!

Ever since I had Oliver I have never been alone... I am forever chasing children, telling them to stop doing what they are doing, and trying to mould them into little human beings and even when I am left without them for a short time, I generally spend time thinking about when I have to get them back.

Today, however, I am alone...

Oliver started childcare today. 

I was intent on starting him in daycare for 1 or 2 days this year as it will give me more time to do WeePantz things, and also give me a little time to myself as well as giving him the chance to develop socially and learn things through activities I can only rarely be bothered cleaning up (such as painting etc). 

I then had the opportunity to go back to work 20hrs a week so Olly will now be away from me a little more often as well as giving me the opportunity to earn money for the things that all women crave like shoes. WeePantz will still continue, I just crave outside time as well, and this job will pay for the childcare as well!!

So today, I had my first shift back in a cafe (I didn't break anything so thats a positive) it was lots of fun, and I cant wait for my regular shifts to start :) So now I am alone, no one to tell to stop picking their nose or to get out of the fridge. I can go to the toilet on my own and can have a shower without an audience.

Loving it! I can also work uninterrupted on some big orders I have also had and a little idea for the shop (I'll keep you updated for that).

So until tomorrow, I am going to go and enjoy my solitude, sew without one child as the "pin lady" and the other being the "reversing button boy" and get some work done!!

And don't forget the February special on the website 20% off orders over $50 when you use the code BIRTHDAYBASH.

Time to Celebrate!

February is the month that I celebrate WeePantz' Birthday. 2 years ago this month, I set off on what I didn't know at the time would be one of the most difficult, but rewarding ventures I have ever done in my life. 

I have learned many things in the last 2 years. 

I have learned how to be more accurate when I am sewing. 

I have learned a lot about cloth nappies!

I have learned to manage money better.

I have learned to sell myself and my product.

I have learned to believe that I can achieve what I set out on.

I have learned to multi task with great skill.

I have learned many ways to distract my kids while I am busy.

I have also learned to defeat many of my vices

and I have beaten depression.

This, for me is definitely cause for celebration! so I've decided to have the usual birthday special over on my website.

So for the month of February if you use the code "BIRTHDAYBASH" in the checkout you will receive 20% off purchases over $50.
