Santa Claus is coming to town ... aarrgghh!

You better watch out! The big fella in his bright red suit and long white beard is suiting up and getting ready to visit. I hope you're not on his 'naughty' list! Only 7 more sleeps - eeeekkk! I really don't feel ready for Christmas this year. Still a couple of presents left to buy and some orders to fill before the big guy graces us with his presence. I'm also hoping to add a few new things to the store as well!! Let's see how much I can get done before the year is out - Game On!
Just some of the orders to fill for Christmas

Coming soon ... Pretty Princess Lounge Pants for girls

Also coming soon ... Applique Onesies

A very big welcome to the first official follower of our blog - Little Sooti!

I'm enjoying reading your blog and think it's fantastic that you have previewed so many 'boys toys' even though you have a daughter. Zoe's nursery is gorgeous, I especially love the wall prints and will be having a look at PrintSpace soon. We have recently moved house and I've been looking for some nice prints for the boys' rooms. I'll let you know if I find something I like! We hope you enjoy following our
Funky Monster adventures!

Ahoy there, me hearties!

Welcome to the Funky Monsters blog! Now that we are settled into our new home it's time to get things rolling again. Funky Monsters took a short hiatis but we are back! I have been busy cutting and sewing and thinking of all things funky to make.

As you are probably aware, Funky Monsters was inspired by my 2 gorgeous boys - The Monster (2yrs) and The Little Monkey (6mths) and our ideas started with our love of all things pirate. A little boys wardrobe is not complete without pirates! We have started out with our Baby Bootie collection and will begin to add other clothing and accessories in the near future. And even though we started out as a bit of a boys club but we have decided we simply can't leave out the little ladies - there are too many cute things to make for girls too! Check out our new Ballerina Booties, just for the girls. Keep posted for more great designs - if I could only decide which colours and patterns to choose!

Well, it's back to cutting and sewing for the rest of the afternoon ....
