A little something to say Thank You...

I just wanted to let you all know that Little Diva Designs is now totally finished, and I say that with a little sniffle!

I had an amazing and really enjoyable time creating and sewing for my wonderful customers and I met so many amazing people, especially through different markets.

I am now concentrating on my new business, Kawaii for You, which is predominantly gorgeous Japanese wares - stationery, bento (lunch) boxes, tote bags, dolls, key rings and loads more.

So as a thank you for being so loyal over the past year or two, I'd like to offer you 20% off store wide (excluding postage) at Kawaii for You.  Just enter "littlediva" at checkout to receive your discount.

**Please note this offer is valid until Sunday 8th August 2010**

Gorgeous Fabrics for Sale....

The time has come to really say goodbye to Little Diva Designs. I've sold off all of my stock and now it's time to offload lots of gorgeous fabrics (of course I can't part with it all so I have to keep a yard or two of each!!).

All fabrics are quilting-weight fabrics that are fantastic to sew with and really hold their shape and colours well.

Some of the designer fabrics available are:

Amy Butler (Full Moon Polka Dot in Cherry)

Alexander Henry (Yui Kokeshi in Pink)

Michael Miller (Carnival Bloom in Brown)

There is also some 22mm self cover buttons (metal front and back)

and some adjustable rings with 10mm flat pad

Just click here to see what else we've got...

My baby turned three !!

A couple of weeks ago my baby turned three (I guess I can't call him a baby anymore can I??) and we had a little family birthday party for him.

I decided a while ago that the kids could have a birthday party with their friends every second year and just a family one for the years in between.  I did invite one friend for Harry though as he has no cousins around his age to play with and also, they're all girls!  So I thought that he at least needed one friend to play with!

He loves Thomas the Tank Engine at the moment so that was the cake taken care of.... until I actually started trying to make it... eeeek.  I loved the way it turned out in the end but it was originally going to have the sugar icing all around but it just kept falling apart.  So after an hour of trying (and probably making it even softer from all the rolling) I went with the icing just on top (you can't tell from the angle of this photo anyway).

Anyway, lots of fun was had by all and Harry loved his Thomas cake and new Thomas bike...  I think his friend wants one now too... he he he

Happy Birthday my beautiful boy....  may you always stay as gorgeous as you are right now!!  (minus the tantrums that still haven't disappeared now that you've turned three... LOL)

Oh, and just in case I hadn't had enough of cake baking, I had to make more cakes for him to take to Day Care the next day which was his actual birthday.... phew!

It's all about the boys....

Quite often when I had a market stall people would tell me I should make boys clothes, toys etc. Now as much as I'd love to, you just can't do everything... But, look no further.

This new online store, Everything Boys, is 100% totally dedicated to boys from newborn to 8 years of age and you can find everything there from clothes, shoes, books and toys to manchester, accessories and much more.

So there's no longer a need to wade through the sea of pink, fairy dresses and tutus to find what you need.

Want more??? They are currently having a 20% off everything Stocktake Sale (click here for the coupon), including already reduced items and there's plenty of back to school ideas if you still need to get a few last minute things.

Click here to visit this fabulously boyish store...

It's finally here....

You've probably noticed I've been dropping hints here and there over the past few months about my new business venture. Well, the stock has arrived and the website has been finished.

So, I present to you.......

Just so you know Kawaii is the Japanese word for "cute" and it is pronounced Ka-Why-ee (like Hawaii but with a "K"). So, if you love all things cute, particularly items from Japan, then you really need to check it out.

Here's a sneak peak of some of the fabulous products you'll find... (but beware, if you buy something for your kids, you'll be very tempted to keep it for yourself)

Bento/Lunch Box - Single

Snow White Letter Set

Large Tote Bag

4 Piece Lunch/Container Set


Memo Pad

Tote Bag

Bento/Lunch Box - 2 Deck

Wooden Peg Set

Now, I'd really appreciate some support for my new little venture so if you feel like it you can follow Kawaii for You through the new Blog, Facebook Fan Page or Twitter. That way you'll never miss any new product announcements and specials.

Little Diva Designs isn't going anywhere just yet so you can still purchase from the Made It store but I won't be doing any markets in the near future.
