Nappy Wallet

I made a nappy wallet this evening…among other things. I’m really enjoying the fact that Elijah is going to sleep at the same time as Brylie. So I have children free evenings again. YAY.

Branching out

For a while now I have been getting a bit disatisfied with the lack of orders I have been getting. One day I was moaning to my husband about this and he asked my why I wasn’t selling the clothing that I make online aswell…I replied that I hadn’t thought that it fit in with my Kiwiana theme, and that cause I was called LittleKiwis I needed to do everything Kiwiana.
