Happy New Year!

Monday, January 4, 2010

Hard to imagine that it's 2010 already — and then you need to decide how you're going to say it. I think Twenty Ten sounds way more Dr Who so that will be my choice! We had a great break and this time I actually forced myself to not do anything (seriously, I had to ask the bf to hide the computer from me!) so am feeling very ready to crack on!

2010 is going to be full of really exciting stuff for Bam Bam Creative (and for me actually, I hope!) and I'm going to be working really hard to keep the momentum of 2009 going. I have started by giving the blog the face-lift it really needed, still a bit to do but it's looking better already.

I'm getting started on my new mobiles — I know I have been going on about these things for ages, but it's been rather hard to find the right supplier and work out the last of the design kinks. I'm really excited about unveiling them! I am hoping that I will be able to do this at Kraftbomb in February.

Another 2 items that I'm currently working on by putting the final design touches on are baby-slings and matching nappy/diaper bags. I'll be making one or two to have as samples, but they will be made as custom orders so that you can choose your fabric combinations and what kinds of pockets you would like.

Being that 2010 is all about great stuff happening, I am going to be working really hard on getting my lovely items into stores. I've been looking into packaging options for a while now and I think that I have it almost ready. Designing the hanging tags has been really exciting with working out how it's all going to look and work best — watching my creations become retail-ready is like seeing Grace learn to walk all over again!

Tomorrow I'm planning on heading out to do a little fabric purchasing to replenish the stock that was used before Christmas, better go and sort out a shopping list! Here's a few photo's from the end of last year and from our holiday.

Chat soon!

Christmas Day we were just outside Drury,
we went on a little bush walk before lunch — isn't it beautiful!

Thanks! I'll be updating everything over the next little while, I'm really happy with it =)

It's at the Pukekohe Scout park, I think it's called Schlapher Park?
