And here we have a very special Meika - she is officially the first ever 1/2 buckle Beetlebum to have wrap style straps!! Ive freehand machine stitched across the hood to accentuate the flow of the pattern. I really love how she has turned out, and she is already so soft and squishy. I am going to find it difficult to package her up - I want to keep her!

Thankyou SO MUCH Ms U. You have really gone beyond and I hope you love her as much as I have loved making her :).

Oh, and Im in love with the wrap style straps too... There could be some more of that going on!

On a personal note, things are going really well here. We are all feeling like things are settling down, however I have to admit that I will never ever judge another mother again! I have found it really difficult making the leap from two kids to three, adding to that Miss L starting school! Its been a wild journey let me just say.

My dear friend Amelia from Small and Bright popped over for some photographic fun a week or so ago, I will post some of the piccies in here tonight or tomorrow. They are amazing stunning - I just cannot believe how great she is with a camera! Like, we were in my messy house, on the dreariest rainy day yet she managed to really make the pictures pop. Needless to say, Phoenix was perfect. But you already knew that didn't you?

Magic Tree of Life

Here is my contribution to the Gossamer Dreams Easter stocking tonight!

She is a very special OOAK Beetlebum Baby Carrier with applique through the centre panel. The hood blends almost seamlessly with the body and she will be a full buckle just as soon as I get her straps sewn onto her!

If you like the looks of her then pop on over to Gossamer Dreams (here) and be ready at 8pm tonight! ETA - she will be auctioned, in a fast auction (2hrs) starting from 8pm, to make it fair for everyone.

I am still on my baby moon but cant stop sewing, its in my blood. I am now testing our baby sized carrier, which *may* be available soon. Check out Phoenix's one! (And an action shot of course - lil Phoenix froggied in the 14" size)

And for SU, pics of your special foresty carrier to come this evening my dear patient one!!!!

Here is Kali - in both the Beetlebums 1/2 buckle version, and the full SSC version :)

Kali - 1/2 buckle

Kali - Full Buckle SSC
I will be using Kali as an example, to show what the differences are between the 1/2 buckle carrier and the full buckle soft structured carrier.

Anyway, a really quick post because my lil Phoenix needs me - the Kalis are off to her new homes tomorrow!

What happens when a Beetle kisses a Cherub?

Ok, so what does this all mean, you ask? I ask that question myself all the time!

The sisterhood got together and made some madness happen..

More pics to come folks - these are up on Lesleys Ozebaby store right now!
