A Sunny Sunday

Its a gorgeous sunny sunday here in Sydney. We made it outdoors this morning to enjoy the Cronulla Markets, where Amalia had her face painted, and i got a really cute pair of handmade nappy pants for Tae.
The kids, and Jaz, our staffy, have been enjoying the beautiful weather, and I have been capturing glimpses of it on breaks from all my Rosette making in prep for The Baby and Toddler Show at the end of the week.
Have put Mr Chicken hard to work - which I secretly think he is enjoying, as its the first chance he has had to get out in the his "man" shed in months! He is working on a custom display for the Show. So exciting!!

Our New Poster!

Just in time for The Baby and Toddler Show next week at Darling Harbour, we have this fantastic new Curl Free Polypropylene Poster that will be part of our display. It spans 2m wide and 0.85m high. The boxes that are shown above will actually be blank on the real poster, so that this way, we can print individual images to suit the focus of the exhibition.
For example, at next week's Show, we are launching our Just Hatched Collection for 000-1, so this age group will be our main target market, and we will mainly have photographs of the bubbas. Then at other events we can replace these pics with new styles etc, without having to have a new poster made up each time.
We very much love our Graphic Designer Lucinda!! She's done a fabulous job. Very excited about the rest of our stand, of which I have hubby working on this weekend, after a little trip to Bunnings ..... looking forward to showing you the end result :)

I am also very excited to be launching something new myself! Seperate to Cheeky Chickies, I will have another stall with my new range of women's wear and jewellery! It's been a project in the pipeline for a while, and I can't wait to share it with you on Saturday!

Here's a taste of what you will find at Allie's Attic this Saturday (and stay tuned for my market wrap up after the event itself)

Facebook Give Away!

It took us a little while longer than initially expected but we are so thrilled to have reached 500 {Likers} on our Facebook Page

To celebrate this achievement, and thank those who have helped us to get there, we have been running a little GIVE AWAY over the past weekend.

There were three parts to this Give Away, three Prize Packs valued at over $100 each, so everyone had an opportunity to get three entries in to the prize draw!

The three questions were as follows:

1. What is your favourite piece from our Free Range Clothing collection (style and colour). If you were to choose any piece from our entire range, what would it be? There was such a fantastic variety of responses here! So nice to see that our range appeals to so many fashion styles!

2. If your were on the Cheeky Chickies design team, what would you add to the Free Range Clothing collection? A new style, a new colour, or perhaps you would just like one of our current styles in a different colour? Some fantastic ideas here! And what is really exciting is that a number of suggestions are actually things we have recently photographed for our 2011 Autumn Winter collection! One thing we will slip is that our newest addition to the colour palette for AW2011 is Barrier Reef Blue - a gorgeous bright turquoise blue!

3. We are currently in the process of marketing our Autumn Winter 2011 range to prospective retailers around Australia. If you were on the Cheeky Chickies sales team, what would your sales pitch be to the retailers to get them to stock the Cheeky Chickies Free Range Clothing - and is there are particular... store you would be pitching to - online or a boutique near you? Thanks so much for all your sales pitches too! It would be really fantastic to see our range in a store near you!

Thank you to everyone who got involved, these questions have generated some fantastic feedback, creative ideas and have shown wonderful support for our little Aussie made organic fashion label!

Little One Design and Style

The very special Little One: Design & Style was released in August.

I felt very priveleged to have been profiled in the magazine,

alongside some fantastically talented designers.

However, I have pondered for some time as to whether I should post the pics.

Being a little bashful, I didn't want it to appear that I was "up" myself.

But then another little voice inside my head said,

"Deni, be proud of yourself, celebrate what you are achieving,

and don't hesitate to share your passion and inspiration with others!"

So, here it is

Go out and grab yourself a copy!

Some of the other designer profiles in the magazine include

my gorgeous friend Elizar, from Huggalugs

Candice from Princess Ratbag whom I met in Melbourne last year

Haidee Lindall, from Miss Haidee who i worked with at Allies Attic Hunters Hill

The beautiful ladies Alison and Susan from Agoo

and the gorgeous Corrie from Retro Mummy whom I have

also had the pleasure of working alongside at Allies Attic markets!

And a BIG SHOUT OUT to Chantelle Bliss from

Forever Bliss Photography for our fun family portrait!
