Something new....

I've been feeling the need to create a few new things for Little Diva Designs lately - even though I don't really have the time!! Anyway, there is one thing that I'm testing at the moment so I can't show you that just yet but it will come in very handy for summer - especially kids swimming lessons!!

Here is one I can show you though. My new fabric covered button rings:

These little cuties are adjustable the smallest you can adjust them to is approx 15mm (diameter).

I'm not going to list them online yet but I'll be selling them at the next Boutique Markets on Sunday 13th September.

The button size is 22mm.

Don't forget, Christmas will be here in no time and these would be perfect stocking fillers....
Have a fantastic weekend everyone....

Usew2 on Etsy Front Page

I was kindly informed by the lovely Bettsy Kingston that my Usew2 Easy Peasy Girls Skirt Pattern & Kit made it to the front page of Etsy a couple of days ago. Here it is:

Not only that, but it was actually picked by Etsy Admin as part of a "DIY Projects under USD 40.00" treasury. YAY!!

Also, earlier in the week, the gorgeous Mee a Bee selected one of my Diva Dresses for her Etsy Treasury. Thanks Jacqui..

So, thank you everyone. I really can feel the love this week....

Little Diva Designs is feeling the love...

Before I start, I just wanted to let you know that my business name is changing slightly from Little Diva to Little Diva Designs. I'm doing a bit of a revamp on the logo too. This is the new logo above on my blog header, what do you think?

Thank you to Angela from Studio Art for creating it for me and also my new Swing Tags - will show you those once they arrive. Contact her via the Studio Art website if you're interested in getting any business cards, postcards, stickers etc designed or if want to get your website re-designed.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to Yummy Mummies & Mini Me who did a fabulous blog post on Little Diva this morning. Click here to check it out and here to visit their online store. Yummy Mummies & Mini Me are the newest Little Diva Designs stockist and not only do they have gorgeous kids clothes, toys and accessories but they also stock a fabulous range of maternity wear. They are currently having their website re-designed so I'll let you know when it's up and running.

My future has changed....

An update on my previous post..... the future is looking much better... he he

(this was yesterday - 3 out of 3)

and yesterday I decided to let my girls paint each others faces.

Charlotte painting Riley's face: (she was trying to do a butterfly but then decided that was too hard)

and the outcome: (no laughing out loud!!)

Riley painting Charlotte's face:

I don't have a finished photo of Charlotte's face as she was devastated when Riley told her she was doing her face as a silly clown so she promptly washed it off - obviously Charlotte is the sensitive one!!
