Less than 7 weeks!

If you can believe it - there's less than 7 weeks until Christmas. I'm not sure what it is - but it seems the older you get, the quicker time flys!

Our Christmas Collection has been revealed and includes Personalised Blankys, Cushions, Santa Sacks and our very unique 'Blankyette'.

The Blankyette idea came about when I wanted to design something playful for Christmas with our 9 month old baby in mind. So this gorgeous product includes loads of colour, beautiful textured ribbons and a teething ring. This makes a great Baby's 1st Christmas gift!

I invite you to pop over to our website and take a look at our Christmas Collection 2010.

Oh and I should let you know - we have 30% off the entire Collection, for one week only!

Did you wear a poncho when you were little?

I did, and just about everyone I know did. They keep you nice and warm, they're extremely comfortable to wear and so fashionable they go with anything, like jeans, dress, skirt, boots etc.
Following a suggestion from a customer, we went to work designing a poncho to compliment our beanies and scarves. And.........voila! Just in time for the Australian winter - ponchos! They're available in three sizes and five colours, and include a gorgeous embroidered German ribbon.
We have also designed mittens to match. They're all made at Blanky4me, with the usual love and care.

Don't want to use Paypal? No problem!

We've had quite a few requests from customers for another payment option besides Paypal on our website. So we have now added DIRECT DEPOSIT as a payment option. It's straight forward and easy to order and then pay using DIRECT DEPOSIT - you can either do EFT (internet banking) or go to a St George Bank branch near you to deposit the money. Just another way we're making things easier for our customers.

Also, today is the last day to recieve a $10 Gift Voucher from Harry's Rocky Road, when you order from our online store! Don't miss out! You don't have to order a blanky to receive the gift voucher - you can order a personalised cushion or scarf or beanie, anything!

What we've been up to in January

Well, as predicted, the year is zooming by! February already! We'd love sometimes to push the 'slow down' button, if there was one.

In January we had our fourth baby - a beautiful little girl! We're all totally smitten with her and adore her like crazy - you can get high from just smelling a newborn. She has already placed her blanky order :)

We also have heaps of exciting promotions and launches planned for this year, so watch this space - big news coming soon!

New Year, New Tools

The first week of January 2010 is almost over! Time certainly is flying. We hope all our readers had a wonderful Christmas/New Year/Festive Season.

2010 is already looking to be a very busy and exciting year at So we thought new year - some new tools!

Our new pair of Mundial super professional shears are amazing and we're enjoying the smoothness of cutting with them! We've also become parents of a new sewing box for all our ever-amounting cottons.

The pincushion I whipped up in a few minutes, as our old one was looking worse for wear. I took inspiration for the coloured appliques from jewels - a woman can never have enough jewels! Of course the pincushion doesn't look like the photo now - just add a zillion pins!
We wish all our readers a Very Happy and Successful New Year and may all your hopes and dreams for 2010 come true!
