Excited to announce...

For those that do not know already, we are so excited to announce that we are expecting our third baby on the 31st January.
As much as I've been excited, I've been pretty sick unfortunately. My poor old blog has been neglected but now I'm back.
My store is also open again for all of those addicted to Chantilly Bows.
Thank you for your patience while my store was closed.

Had a great day at the show...

Well the Easter long weekend has come to an end and we have some fabulous memories of a great Easter. The kids woke up at the crack of dawn on Easter morning and found that the Easter bunny looked to have tripped over in his slumber dropping Easter Eggs all of the house! An Easter egg hunt was the only answer and the kids had a ball.

We all went to the Easter Show yesterday and had a fantastic time. We headed straight to the animal nursery and fed some lambs and goats. There were lots of little ones and plenty of big ones too which freaked my kids right out! We saw Postman Pat perform for a little while until Luke said 'I don't like it', so we moved on lol!

The kids wanted their faces painted. Of course Holly wanted to look beautiful and Luke wanted to be a tiger. As soon as he was done he immediately transformed into a tiger and was running around 'Raaaaahhhing everyone and Holly was flying along ever so gracefully with her butterfly-ness. After a few fun filled rides, it started to rain so we thought we'd head home.
I hope you all had a great Easter too!

So proud of my DH

Well I must say, I really am a proud wife at the moment. My husband has always impressed me with his many talents. He has always been right in to music and he loves to play it loud! We all usually sit in his 'boys room' which kind of respresents a home based nightclub! Complete with laser lights, strobes, a smoke machine and of course my little contribution - my disco ball!

Anyway, he recently went to DJ school and learned how to mix music and as it turns out he has become quite the DJ.

My aunty had her 50th birthday party on the weekend and he was asked to DJ and he just did the most amazing job! Everyone danced all night and the music was sensational. It was a really good mix of golden oldies from the 70s, 80s and 90s. A great night was had by all and now we cannot wait to do it all again!

Well done Pete!

My little ray of sunshine...

So I have some new things in store but before I show these to you, I thought that I would just make this post a tribute to my gorgeous baby girl Holly. She really is a little ray of sunshine... She, as you may know is my model for Chantilly Bowtique. She is always so over enthusiastic when I make something new. She's always asking me me if what I've made is for her or as she says, a Chantilly customer. As you can imagine, I am always having to make duplicates of everything just so she can have some too! She never complains about having to model wearing my bows. Even if she really doesn't want to do it, she just puts on a huge smile and strikes a pose and then she just runs off and continues playing with her Barbies! She's forever telling people that 'My mummy makes my bows'. She's such a cutie and I cannot thank her enough for being my little girl. I love you sweetie, Luv Mummy xo

Now, back to the bows!

New to the Bowtique are these fabulously cute Baby Bling Flower Headbands.
These lovely headbands are suited to babies and toddlers and feature a stunning Boutique Flower complete with Bling for a little sparkle. Your little girl will look just way too cute in this stunning accessory to finish off her special outfit.

The size of the flower is approximately 11cm and is securely attached to this soft headband which will be comfortable for your little girl.
A great accessory for a photo shoot, wedding, christening, birthday party or any other special event. You can purchase these headbands on my website.

Proud to be an Aussie

Well, what can I say. I am so proud of my country right now. As Australians we have all rallied around each other and supported the survivors of the tragic Victorian bushfires. As most of you know we had a televised telethon last night. Sportsman, including some Australians best AFL Footballers, Cricket players, models including Miranda Kerr, Megan Gale and Lara Bingle, we even had a special visit from Orlando Bloom!

In one evening we managed to raise more $63 million! Plenty of celebrities from overseas offered their support as well, including Mel Gibson, Olivia Newton John, Hugh Jackman and loads more. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban donated $500,000 to the appeal along with Michael Buble and Anthony LaPaglia generous donations of $50,000. Russell Crowe has also done his bit for the future to raise money and build community centres in the worst affected areas.

Well done Australia!
