The first post.....

I'm a little scared. This is my first ever post on my first ever blog! What to say? I suppose an introduction is appropriate. Ok, here goes....

Hello! I'm Carli. I'm Australian. I'm Mum to two gorgeous babies: Nicholas, who is almost two and a half, and Ivie, seven months. I also have a very supportive husband, who only ever rolls his eyes at my ever-expanding list of projects when I'm not looking.

I love making things, and am always being inspired by all sorts of things.

I have an online store -
La La Baby, in which I showcase many of my handmade items, amongst other gorgeous (and mostly handmade) things - and in September, I launched my MiniLaLa range of designer Modern Cloth Nappies. They are the main reason for this blog. The response has been overwhelming, and whilst I really shouldn't be spending any of my time without the chain to my sewing machine fastened tightly around my ankle, I thought this would be a great way to keep those of you who are interested up to date with the goings on at MiniLaLa.

I am currently closed to orders as I frantically try to catch up and re-stock, but will soon be re-opening (hopefully the second week in December) with a new strategy. I will be stocking my MiniLaLa store (hopefully monthly), and, for the time-being at least, will not be taking custom orders. I will try to keep as many different patterns in stock as possible, but I am only one woman! With one sewing machine, I might add...

If you would like to be kept up to date with MiniLaLa news, like stock updates, specials, and anything else, please subscribe to my blog feed in the menu on the right.

Thanks for reading my milestone first post :)
