New things...

I've got some new things in the pipelines for Patooties... keeping me very busy.

Firstly, I decided to change blog hosts, so I can make it more like a website, with separate pages and albums and such that unfortunately, blogger just doesn't offer. So I'm going with Typepad now - I've only heard good reports about it really. The new blog is still a work in progress, but you can go and check it out if you like. Still have a few information, FAQ pages to add, but it's the general gist! Tell me what you think??

Second thing that is new for the business, is my new design One-Size-Fits-Most pocket nappy. After some trial and error and research, I think this new way is going to work much better... at least I hope so!!

Have been buying lots of yummy new fabrics too - I now have over 40 different fabrics to choose from!! I've been REALLY busy trying to keep up with all the orders I got with my introductory prices... still plodding through them, but still enjoying the process too. Am still amazed at how God has blessed this for me!

And another new thing - I'm going to be working part-time from the end of June!! As if I don't already have enough to do huh.... I'm really looking forward to this though! I'm going to be job-sharing as a group leader in a Christian (!!) childcare centre that the director from the centre I used to work in is building with her church. I'm really looking forward to being able to use christian resources and the Word of God to teach kids!! Awesome!! I'll just need lots of prayer for being able to balance it with the rest of life :) :)

Oh, and I need to also find time in there to plan a Teddy Bear's Picnic themed party for Lani's b'day party on 29 June. I want it to be great too, so will have to put some effort - and probably money - into it. If anyone has any cool ideas for a Teddy Bear's picnic for lots of adults and a whole mix of kids of all ages, please let me know!!

Oh, and I've also been doing Weight Watchers. I've lost 2.8kgs in the last 3 weeks, pretty happy with that!! I have a long way to go though, but am trying to take it all in smaller parts of a bigger picture.

Well, sorry to be short and sweet, but time is of the essense.

God bless all xxx

What a busy girl you are Nat - so pleased to hear the Nappies are going so well - congratulations on the new job - great that you will be able to use all your training. I also can't believe that Lani is about to turn 1 - I am sure the party will be a huge hit - if past parties are anything to go by.

Hi Nat

Great to catch up on all your news. I can't believe Elijah is already 2 years old. The birthday photos look like lots of fun.

Reading all your info about Elijah has brought back some happy memories of when my daughter (now 8 years old) was just 2. Thanks for sharing.

Loving all your new fabrics for the nappies, they look fantastic and I am sure your flooded with lots of orders. Keep up the good work and wishing you all the besst with your new part time job. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a happy, fun and safe week. From Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx.
