We are TWO! And with a little business, you need to take whatever milestone you make and celebrate the heck out of it – which in our case involved a picnic party with 6 kids in tow, champagne, the odd mishap and a huge chocolate cake, YUM!
It’s been an interesting two years. Although we’ve both learnt a lot and worked out a few more things along the way, the learning curve seems to be never ending – I think that’s probably a good thing! When we started thinking about an online store 2 and a half years ago, we had 5 very young children and a new baby due – craziness! Our driving force was looking to do something from home, but also something where we could use a bit of creativity and of course the pull of shopping for gorgeous things was hard to resist! There are some creative and clever local designers out there whose work we love to show off. We always had the aim of creating our own clothing line, putting into practice what we have learnt and what we think is missing. There is of course already a huge choice of beautiful clothing out there, but still, our aim for this year is to trial a couple of items. We’re looking forward to our kids sporting them around the inner west as a trial sometime soon! We feel very priviledged being able to work from home as other Mums will know the juggle that is trying to raise several children and fit in school, activities, homework, sports, doctors appointments – the list is endless. Kudos to all the other mums out there juggling along with us.
We still love to choose the beautiful clothes, toys and accessories. We have welcomed some more gorgeous brands to the fold like Huxbaby, Five Little Faces, And the little dog laughed, Rapscallion and Two Little Ducklings, and have welcomed back perennial favourites like Wilson & Frenchy, Baobab, Glottogon, Bella Buttercup, Kitty and Sparrow and Little Tyro. We both love and curse our Facebook page and have watched more dance montages than we probably should have (don’t we all?). Our kids are a handful but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for our families and our followers for being on the journey with us. Happy 2nd Birthday to us!
