Normally Fluffy Changes does not get too involved in Charity Auctions. (And yes I get asked almost weekly if I could help out.) But this one is different becuase this is something very close to our heart. I also know that Mary and Brian who run Camp Autism do an amazing service and look forward to attending their next QLD camp with my family.
So please stop by Funky Fabrixs facebook page and see the action starting tonight at 6pm (QLD time, or 7pm Daylight savings time).
Oh check out the item we have for Auction, you could win yourself a one off fluffy changes bag!

Ok sorry for the delay in this post. But here it is. Starting with the Birthday boy enjoying cake at the restaurant. We had a full on day and finished it at our favourite place to eat: Indian Mehfil In Ipswich.
So here is some thing very new. Key wristlets. They are sturdy and have one key ring on there already, but could easily handle one or two more.

This is very special range of products is rather puzzling indeed. But when put together makes beautiful sense. It is bright and colourfull and treasured by all. Confused yet?
Only time will tell, but like all my products they are one off creations, even though they share the common theme. They are to raise awareness for Autism and Aspergers. But most importantly help raise fund for Thomas's therapy items and tools. From the little things like chewy toys, to big things like special trampolines and possibly an Ipad (if needed). Each item purchased is to be on the suggestion of his OT and speech Therapists. And funny enough there is all ready a list of items.
So this is what is new. Now the items will be some of our old favourites, to some new and exciting items, that will only be created in this special fabric. So stay tuned to what is coming over the coming months.

So this why today my arm was really bulky. It is not the most comfortable thing to wear for about 18hrs a day! It also mean driving is a pest. Lifting Mr T is a challange. And sewing, well I am not sure that will be such an easy task when you can't straighten your arm.
But the show went on for The handmade Expo today. It was a beautiful winters day with a hint of a breeze at lunch time and a slight bit more than a breeze around close of day. The cold start did not seem to bother the handmade fans of Ipswich and I think the visitors were definately not disappointed by the finds of the day.
I met some wonderful new people and some other not so new fans. And it seemed many were happy to see toddler boys clothes available again. In the coming months more summer toddler boys clothes will be appearing, so keep your eye out for the previews on Facebook.
Also remember that I can do custom orders for you, so if you liked something and it was not in your childs size, please feel to email me or make contact through facebook to put in a request for a custom order. This also goes for the nappy bags. (But more on thoose in a new post.)
Unfortunately for me, I am not able to be at the butterfly tree markets in Toowoomba this weekend, I was really looking forward to it. But as driving is a pest locally, driving over an hour west on a highway which on a normal day has it's own challangers is just not going to happen whilst I am in a brace that is so cumbusom. So my humble appologies there.
To make up for this, Later in the week I am going to be putting up 6 selected items on a market night sale. So if there is something you want to see in particular, let me know so I can make sure it is up for grabs on the night.

I have been a little absent (and possibly absent minded) of late due to the crazy first six months of the year. To start the year both my husband and I had surgery (this after all the floods) and in May we did it all over again, this time less than 24 hours apart! Nothing quiet like caring for your husbands needs whilst trying to recover from abdominal surgery!
A week later we got another shock, well ok if you have met my little boy you will know it is not that big of a surprise. Mr T was diagnosed has having High Functioning Asperger's Syndrome. It explained so much our son and suddenly his little quirks and outbursts all made sense.
As his main carer there was a lot to do in this last two months. From organising therapies to finding Early intervention programs for toddlers. But also dealing with other peoples reactions to this news. Some people were positive about it, others gave us a hard time and questioned the professional diagnosis which was very hurtful and insulting in many ways.
So for some reason I lost my sewing and creative mojo there. (Now I just can not imagine why or how it would leave me like that!) But over this last few days I think it is returning to me. So hopefully in the coming weeks, especially as our new family routine settles, my creative juices will be flowing like a river again and new and wonder full items will start emerging from my sewing rooms.
I also have to once again appologise for not being at The Handmade Expo on the weekend, as I had woken up quiet ill Saturday morning. Hopefully all will be well and I will be back next month!

For those who are not aware I took some time off to have life changing surgery. So if you know me from the markets and have met me in person you will start to notice a difference when you see me again.
Speaking of which, I will be back on board for The Handmade Expo this month after a couple of months off. I will have lots of new and exciting things available including Knitts by Helen again with her lovely scaves and beanies. As well as some beautiful knitted head bands.
Helen is my wonderfull and talented Mother In Law who does amazing knitted items in her spare time. From the knitted tinkabell balls and cubes to scaves and shawls. She likes to give me the privalage to sell her items during the winter months. So stay tuned for some pics coming soon.

I have completed all but one custom order (I had a good handfull this month). This will be done the first week back.
This also means that I will not be attending this months The Handmade Expo. I am quiet sad about this but becuase I am going to a wedding I had no choice of the dates. I will also be missing the April The Handmade Expo, but more on that next month.
April will also bring some time off for personal matters and I will only be doing 1 custom order (yet to be filled) in the first two weeks. So if you are after something special please email me and let me know early so I can have the fabrics in and your order completed by the 9th of April.
On the 10th Of April I will also be found at The Butterfly Tree markets. This will be last Market you will see me at until May (hopefully).
See you all on the flip side of my Holidays
Jodie AKA Mrs Fluffy Changes.
