And honestly the pricing has to be seen to be believed – so affordable for high quality handmade. Here’s something for the little ladies…

Twice as Nice is a unique boutique that specialises in fun, handmade, custom baby clothing for infants, toddlers, and children. Here’s something special for the little heart charmers…

You must have a look at Tammy’s full range on Facebook or Etsy!!

This week I am showcasing the talents of fellow BrisStyler (BrisStyle Inc) Caroline Taran creator at Maika. Maika provides fun children’s clothing and accessories handmade from new and recycled fabrics.

Caroline combines contemporary fabrics with high quality re-purposed fabrics and trims (eg. tableclothes, sheets, doilies)  to create One of a Kind (OOAK) pieces or items in limited quantity.  LOVE Caroline’s style? Caroline invites custom work, let her create something special just for you… or your little friend?

Purchase details: www.etsy.com/shop/maikacreations

I have to say I was particularly impressed, as a mother of a boy, by the lovely ‘boy’ items offered  – boys are regularly overlooked when it comes to the handmade, but certainly not here!

I really enjoyed reading through Caroline’s fantastic blog and look forward to hearing more of her sewing and renovating adventures with a young family.  The photography is just as beautiful as her creations – just look at her Facebook banner – pin cushions just don’t look that good in ‘real life’ (well certainly not mine anyhoo).

I’m Showing Off: A Cat Like Curiosity

I’m Showing Off: A Cat Like Curiosity

This month I have decided to showcase some Etsy artisans beginning with the fabulously named: A Cat Like Curiosity552957_319699418104099_1281962667_n

A Cat Like Curiosity is the creative outlet of English artist Sarah Evans. Sarah offers up a beautiful collection of works focused predominately on digital and mixed media art. Her artwork is loving used to create bespoke jewellery items including necklaces and brooches.

Talking about her Etsy store Sarah says:

I have grown to love creating. The more time I devote to it the happier I feel. I literally spend every spare moment I have creating lovely things for people to view and hopefully welcome into their homes.

I literally couldn’t imagine my life without this store – it is so much a part of me and my vision of the future now.

I am happiest creating lovely gifts filled with inspiration, love and light. All of my work is infused by a desire to inspire and uplift.

And look at some of the lovely work she produces:

One of my favourite items from A Cat Like Curiosity is the pocket mantra cards – what a great idea! They are $10 plus postage but priceless inspiration on the go.

This Lil Piggy Mascot?!

This Lil Piggy Mascot?!

This week my mother and daughter surprised me with a project they had previously mentioned only in passing as ‘The Onesie’. “We are sewing ‘The Onsie‘, choosing buttons for ‘The Onesie’ and finishing ‘The Onsie’. Well today was ‘The Onsies’ big reveal and it made me almost twosies with excitement on the spot!

Matison was raiding my mother’s extensive vintage pattern collection when she made a prize find… a pig costume  pattern (?!). Drawn to just how damn cute it was, and not restricted by a pig costume being seemingly impractical to a 16yo girl’s wardrobe, Matison worked in ca hoots with Nanny to develop – “The Piggy Onesie”. Congratulations Matison and Nanny on a very creative combination which will certainly see Matison super snug all Winter…. and give us a little laugh.

One of One, “The Piggy Onesie” – just brilliant!
