Happy Holidays!

Just a quick one from me - Wishing you all a very safe and happy Christmas and beyond!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your patience and support over the past few months. I'll be back in the new year (after a short, and much needed break!). See you then :)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

To all of you who visited MiniLaLa tonight - thank you so much! My head is spinning right now!

To those of you who have placed orders, I will do my best to get back to you asap. Please bear with me. I'm a little overwhelmed, to say the least! Thank you!!

To those of you who missed out, I am so sorry. There will be another chance in a month or so, and for one of you, a chance to get all the MiniLaLa nappies you want by entering the December ballot:

THE BALLOT is your second chance! Simply
email me here with your wishlist of nappies, and 'December Ballot' in the subject line. One person will be chosen randomly to have their wishlist made for them! Cut off date for current ballot entries is Monday 22nd December 2008.
You can see styles and prices here, and fabric choices here

And again, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Just a few hours to go!

The MiniLaLa stocking is tonight! Am I ready? No way! I'm scared! Hopefully my little website will handle it.

I've just made a few listings live, so you can add them before the nappies go up at 8.30pm.

Mini Bibs...

Liners and Boosters....

Cloth Wipes....

Now, a few things about the website (remember, this is the final stocking before the new site - YAY!):

- All items will be added to your Paypal cart, and can be paid for using credit cards and Paypal funds

- If the item you want to purchase is sold out, this will only appear AFTER clicking the 'proceed to checkout' button on your cart. The site itself will probably not quite keep up. This is why I've added the smaller items already. That way you can have those in your cart ready for the nappies.

- To check out without signing up for a Paypal account, click 'proceed to checkout' on your cart, and follow the instructions on the left side of the screen. (The word 'continue' is linked - click that)

- I am fairly certain that there will not be enough nappies to go around tonight, so if you do miss out, I'm sorry! There will be another stocking in around 6 weeks, and I will be running a ballot after tonight, so that at least one of you can get all the nappies you want! The ballot will be for blog subscribers only, and I'll send out details later in the week :)

- Orders placed tonight will have a slight delay in postage, as unfortunately I have to go away very early in the morning, until Thursday night. All orders will be sent via express post on or before next Monday, and should hopefully arrive before Christmas. Sorry for any inconvenience!

So 8.30pm. I hope you get the nappies you are after. Good Luck to you all (and to me, LOL)!

Have a look!

MiniLaLa is back online! Pop over and have a look at what will be available tomorrow night.

To let you all know (as I'm very excited!), we will *hopefully* have a brand new website for our first 2009 stocking! It'll be bigger, better, and most of all more functional than the current site. Can't wait!

Back to the sewing machine for me.... So much to do!!

Monday's the day...well, the night!

Yes, you've been so patiently waiting, and I am very glad to tell you that I will have a stocking of nappies available on Monday - that is December 15th. They will go up on the site at 8.30pm (now, that's eastern daylight savings time).

I will post further updates on the blog before Monday.

I'll open for 1 hour, or until sold out. For this lot, ordering and payment will be through Paypal only, via the cart on my site (sorry if that causes any inconvenience). Styles and sizes are very limited, with there being only 1 in some.

Your purchased nappies will be posted later in the week - all via express post, and no later than Monday 22nd - as we have appointments in Melbourne on Tuesday and Wednesday, so will be rushing off early Tuesday morning. (These things always happen at the most inappropriate of times!)

After this weeks stocking, I will be taking approximately 6-8 weeks to make some more nappies, try to organise some help, oh, and perhaps even take a small break to enjoy some festivities! We are also having a new website built, which I'm very excited about, so I look foward to showing that off in the new year.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your interest and support. Hopefully your babies will all be sporting a MiniLaLa nappy (or two) soon. If I don't hear from you on Monday, have a very safe and happy holiday season!

Sit still? Me? Never!

Nope. I am incapable! Sleep too, it seems.

Sadly enough, despite that, I haven't had alot of time to work on nappies in the past few days. I know, I know..... Hopefully I will find a small elf - no, a family of elves - who will help me reach my nappy goal before my re-open in less than a couple of weeks. Hmmmm.....

Here is a peek at just one other thing which has kept me busy this week
Hair clips. Lots of 'em! All available at La La Baby now.

Now back to the sewing machine....

It's official!

Thanks to Tania, at Darlings Downunder, my nappies have officially gone wholesale!

Oh, what a beautiful sight it was! Every single nappy, handmade by me (with a little help from my darling husband). Don't they look divine?

They'll be available at very soon.

What day is it?

December....? Already....?

As shocked as I am that we are but weeks away from Christmas, I'm actually pretty organised (for a change). Nicholas is 2 and a half, which means that Christmas is full of fun and excitement! Let's be honest, it can become quite a chore when we don't have anyone to get excited about our small efforts.

We decorated our Christmas tree last night. I think it's the first time (possibly ever!) that I've had it set up more than a few days in advance. The past couple of years we haven't even had one, so it was lots of fun! Nicholas and I did the decorating, Daddy took photos, and Ivie helped a little too.

I also spent many hours making an advent calendar. I was so excited about Nicholas' reaction, and he didn't disappoint!! We opened the first box last night to reveal a chocolate coin (it had to be something good for the first night). His eyes lit up like fireflies!

Christmas is going to be so much fun this year!
