Sneak Peak - Rock Chick Skulls & Dragonfly appliques

Here is a little sneak peak of some applique designs I am working on for the little ladies. We have Rock Chick Skulls and Dragonflies which can be appliqued on singlets, onesies and tees. I can't wait to put the first sample together!

Here are our funky Rock Chick Skulls - they will have black or white felt eyes appliqued to them. How much do they rock! I will also be doing some for the boys.

And here are our gorgeous Dragonflies, so sweet!

I'm hoping these will be listed in my Made It store next week, stay tuned.

Pre-orders are welcome! If you like one of our designs, please contact me ( and let me know what image you would like, if you would like it applied to a singlet, onesie or tee and what colour as well as which size you require.

Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal

The 2010 Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal will be held on Friday 2nd April. As well all know, the aim is to raise money for The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, and to ensure that all children with life threatening illnesses receive the best possible medical and clinical care.

Although we are fortunate enough that our children are not suffering serious or life threatening illnesses, we have spent time at the RCH and know many others that have done the same. If you have ever been to the RCH you will know the fantastic work they do and the wonderful people that make it happen. They treat more than 280,000 children each year. They really make it a place for children to feel like they have some sort of normal life and to keep entertained and have some fun. Just the way they set up the waiting rooms shows you how they feel about their little patients. They also make an enormous effort to look after the parents of sick children as well.

This year Funky Monsters will be supporting the RCH Good Friday Appeal in a number of ways:

  • From today until midnight on Good Friday, $5 from every pair of booties we sell will be donated to the appeal.
  • To encourage you to buy more booties, we also have a special offer -buy any 2 pair of booties for $25 (normally $32) and $10 will be donated.

So if you need booties for your little monster, a baby shower gift, a gift for a newborn or you just want to spoil your grand kids, nieces or nephews now is a better time than any to get your hands on a pair of our booties. There are many great styles to choose from with more to come throughout the week & custom orders are also welcome. To start shopping click here.

We will also be donating a number of booties and appliqued onesies & tees to be sold or auctioned off at a RCH Good Friday Appeal fundraiser at the Tungamah Hotel (held on Good Friday). Last year the pub raised $16,000 for the appeal, #16th in the Top Pubs & Clubs list. This appeal is close to the hearts of owners Peter & Helen Chisnall and many of the locals in the Tungamah and surrounding areas.

Please help us support this great cause and also help to spread the word! Be sure to check out the RCH Good Friday Appeal website for information on ways you can make a donation, events & activities leading up to and on the day, merchandise available and much more here.

If taking advantage of our special offer, please wait for an updated invoice to be sent with updated costs prior to making payment. Offer excludes postage costs.

Lucky Kinda Gal

Well, aren't I just a lucky kinda gal! Over the last few months I have had a run of good luck, which is a nice change. My family and I live a moderate life, we certainly are luckier than some but are also paying a mortgage, budgeting and watching our pennies wisely like most of us have to. So it's nice to get a little something for nothing every now and again.

Since discovering the world of blogs, I have been a little trigger happy entering all the great giveaways there are. I love it! Although I must admit, there are times where I do find it hard to keep up! My first prize was a Piper+Lily fabric necklace from a Hip Little One giveaway. This went to my lucky niece (the only one so far in a family full of boys!) and was a great match for her brand new outfit. It is quite ironic that this was the first giveaway I won, having no girls of my own. I don't enter giveaways and competitions just for the sake of it and usually the prizes of choice are either goodies for my little monsters or myself, or those I can make use of for my Funky Monsters range such as gorgeous fabrics.

Then a couple of weeks ago, my husband called with some fantastic news. When he went to work on Monday a colleague asked him if he had watched The Garden Gurus on Channel 9 Sunday evening. My husband replied 'No' to which his colleague responded "So I guess you don't know that you won their competition then" And the prize .... $3000 worth of grass!! Now some of you might be reading this thinking that's a strange prize or wondering if it really is anything to be excited about ... but it is! We have recently moved into our first brand new home, newly built and the only thing we have a lot of, is dirt! My husband entered the competition before we moved and had forgotten all about it. No wonder, there have been so many competitions we have entered at all the home and garden shows we have been to over the last couple of years. So yes, this is a fantastic prize for us and will mean we can finish off our front and rear yards. I suppose I can't take all the credit for this prize but it definitely benefits me (and my bank balance!).

And finally, last night I received an email to advise that I was the lucky winner of the latest giveaway run on the Little Sooti blog. The prize: a beanie and pair of leg warmers of choice from I Heart Baby. This one is for The Cheeky Monkey!

But these are not the first prizes I have won. This time last year I won the Good Friday raffle at our local fish n chip shop, winning a hamper full of delicious chocolate goodies and I also won a signed James Blunt CD from Fox FM a few years before that. I think that makes up for the time I won a TV Hits magazine competition and never received my prize!! I was a devastated early teen that never received my Martika poster and CD!!

But even without winning these competitions, I do consider myself a lucky gal! I have a wonderful husband and 2 healthy beautiful children. What more could I really ask for!
