We've been appreciated!

It's bpab's first one! Very excited to have been appreciated! And it's laminated too!

Wandong Primary School (Vic) raised over $6,000 on the Auction Night they held in November this year. Well done!
Items were donated for the auction.
The money will be used to purchase items that will be accessed by ALL the students, such as: library tables, a mat for their Art room floor and home reading books. Lucky kids!

beyond pink and blue were happy to support this small community school in their fund raising efforts.
We would be more than delighted to support more school fund raisers, so contact me if you are doing one and we'll help in some way!

Eye Spy.... a bit of bling

My first Eye Spy post! Sundays are the wost for me.... so maybe I'll post on Sat. instead. (sneaky)

This is as 'bling' as I get..... my eldest's sneakers!
They are very fun and makes her run really fast.... which is very important when you're playing kiss chase! (or is it?)
Enjoy your sparkly Sunday!

Thanks Hoppo Bumpo for this week's theme.

Almost time to shave!

Well it's been going for a couple of months now and the Shave for Wishes fundraiser is going to come to an end soon. (30th Dec. '08)
That's when the everyday hero page will close it's doors..... and I'm hoping to have reached the $500 mark by then. What do you think?? The total is up to $365 at the moment.

Thanks to some very generous people (some not wanting to be known) and for the great customers of bpab (5% of every sale has been donated too), we are getting there.

Early days saw some conflict of interest.... "I'm not donating, I want Monica to keep her hair!" (and) "Right, where do I donate?? I want it all gone!" I even got my father-in-law joking that he'll have to call in all the money people owe him so there will be none spare to donate (I think he's a bit worried about me being shaved... he just got used to the idea of going out in public with me....).
But whether you like my hair now or can't wait to see what I will look like with a bare head - it's going ahead anyway! I would like to use the excuse that I've reached my target and 'they' made me shave my head, but if it doesn't happen in the next couple of weeks, come the new year and it's out with the old (dreaded, tangled, fluffy, over-grown) and in with the new!

Yeah, it can't last forever and I'm welcoming the change (as i always do!).
So please, please, please if you are secretly reading this and have been thinking of donating for a while - it's time. Don't put it off any more.... just do it! You'll make a sick child's wish come true (and have my eternal gratitude).

Click on the 'Shave for Wishes' banner on the top right of this blog.

Welcome to new brand: Flat Friends

We are loving the new 'flat' softies by Flat Friends!
They are made from 100% Australian wool and come in their own bags with info about each animal too. We have five different animals at the moment: Salt water crocodile (above), Seal pup, Koala (because every Aussie store needs one!), Grey wolf and Sea turtle.
They retail for $49.00 each and are so soft and cuddly.... a perfect companion for every child. (Even the big ones!)

When you adopt a Flat Friend, 10% of net profit goes towards the preservation of wildlife and our environment. So that's two presents in one!

Gift Certificates

We now offer gift certificates (or vouchers) at bpab!
Just in time for Christmas.........
Thanks to Paypal, you can select the amount you'd like to give, if you want to email the certificate to the lucky duck or print it out and give it to them in person (or maybe with their Christmas card by post) and type a note too.
The certificates last for 18 months! (Golly! That's a long time!)

So if you're not sure what to give, but think they'd love what goodies beyond pink and blue have in store, a Gift Certificate would be perfect.
Actually, if you come across extra money now, you can even give a gift certificate to yourself to use at a later date (when you need a pick me up shopping frenzy treat and you're broke!).

Look for this button on the top left hand corner (above 'I like to shop' box) on every page of the bpab shop.
Soooo easy!

This is.... my favourite thing from nature

It looks like a lot of things from nature.... but actually it's the diversity of what nature can do and be that is my favourite thing!
How nature can have so many looks, so many shades of colours (even if they are all greens or browns), so many shapes and patterns (if you look close enough) and so many different textures and moods.
It's no wonder I love nature! It's not very hard when you are surrounded by it. (Even if you live in a concrete jungle)
If I am ever sad or frustrated or need time out from what I'm doing, a bit of nature therapy always lifts me and refreshes any stale views I may have. Soooo lucky to have nature, she's a real gift!
Now go outside......

This weeks theme is from Cloth and Fodder who is a brilliant at sewing.... really!

This is..... what I'm surprised I like!

Well I was walking around the house this morning thinking what am I surprised I actually do like! What a weird thing to be meditating about on a Sunday morning!!
A few things came to mind immediately......
pumpkin! - I loathed it when I was younger and was made to eat at least one piece if it was on the menu - but now..... being vegetarian, I love it!
pink - never was a fan of this colour, but having little girls around has made it easy to embrace what pink represents and how being really girlie sometimes is fun!
early mornings - I've always been one who LOVES a sleep in. Since having kids, it's rather rare to get a sleep in (no matter what time you went to bed the night before!), and so instead of fighting it I now relish the mornings I get to sneak out of bed without waking the kids and enjoy the peace of just being me and doing odd tasks without being interrupted! Of course this could also be because I'm getting older and I've noticed that's what older people do...........
wood bugs (Slaters, butchy boys) - this is a weird one. I grew up detesting these little creatures that roll up in a ball when they get scared, as they were everywhere and like all insects and pests, seemed rather ugly when I was a young teenage girl. BUT lately they have re-surfaced at our place, in the back yard on the concrete and I have been teaching the girls to embrace all creatures (even the annoying or scary ones) and to observe them doing what they do and to leave them be (rather than killing them or crying for fear of being eaten by them!). So we have been looking at the wood bugs and some times try to get them to roll in a ball..... one of the girls calls them her friends. Yay!
Last one.....
berries! Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries..... never liked them very much at all. Especially hated the artificial strawberry milkshakes or ice cream. Yuck!!!! Until about 2 1/2 years ago.....
when I was pregnant with my last bub - I developed a taste for the berries and now love them!
(Still hate the artificial stuff.....) I like them fresh, will eat them just like that. I like them in cakes and desserts, in smoothies...... I find it rather odd really, that pregnancy can change your taste buds (maybe not that odd seeings it changes so much of you anyway!).

So to pay homage to something I was surprised I liked - here is a fantastic recipe that I tried the other day (with amazing results, as I've never tried making a pav. before in my life!)
Oh, and I added sliced strawberries on top as well...... enjoy!

Recipe taken from "Vegetarian Supercook" by the amazing Rose Elliot. (Truly a must have cook book for anyone who wants to experience food!)

'This is' theme from earl and cookie, nice one!
Three buttons will tell you all you need to know about playing 'this is'.

Welcome to new brand: Papoose

I'm very excited about this range of FELT stuff! I mean who doesn't like felt right??
Colours of Australia actually design and make the products under the Papoose label. They use Fair Trade practices to give work and proper income to people over in Nepal.

Here are just a few Papoose items that have landed at bpab, with many more to come over the next year! (I'm in a purple mood today..........)
Purple happy flags bunting $36
3mt long, 3 other colour ways available.

Sweet hearts chain $23
40cm long, also flowers and birds available

Purple babushka dolls (set of 5) $64
3 other colour ways available...... too beautiful!

Welcome to new brand: Kanoe

I wish I had known about this fantastic hammock when my last child was young enough to use it!! She sleeps on people, not in bed.... needs the constant contact and movement that people provide. Ahhh well! I think this will be a life saver for many out there that need some time out.

The Kanoe motion sensitive baby hammock is made from 100% certified organic cotton canvas (double thickness), which will cradle your baby like you do. It is suspended from the ceiling and has a spring which allows gentle movement in any direction, when baby stirs, thus rocking baby back to sleep or you can gently soothe your child by rocking it.

Comes in 4 colour ways and is a fair trade product!
I think an investment worth considering if you are looking for the alternative to cots.
Great for little ones up to 2 years old.

Have also got some FAQ for you to read. (just click on the pages for a larger version.)

Welcome to new brand: Ellaroo

I've done it! I have finally decided to stock slings and more baby carriers.......

Ellaroo has the most lovely designs and every sling is made from 100% certified organic cotton, dyed using non-toxic eco dyes, the padding in the Mai Tai is allergy-free fibre made from recycled PET and they're made in fair trade conditions, in India!

So my decision to stock them was rather easy!

Mei Tai Deluxe Sling
Can be worn on the front or back!
Reversible for plain colour and available in 6 different designs.

Ring Sling (in appliqued Malay)
Choices of plain colours, patterned, embroidered or appliqued designs.
Great for breast feeding and sleeping.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How big a child can I carry in an Ellaroo baby carrier?
A. The weight limit has been suggested at 16kg, but you can carrier heavier children for shorter amounts of time. These carriers have been tested to 46kg with no signs of stress.

Q. What size carrier should I order?
A. The Mei Tai comes in one size and fit up to a 48" (122cm) waist size. The Ring Sling standard is a medium, which suits most people. Very petite people (less than 5'2" (158cm) and 46kg) may use a small. Larger parents (e.g. size 20 and above) may use a large. We can special order the small and large sizes for you.

Q. What kind of carrier is easiest for nursing?
A. The Ring Sling is easiest, as it allows the baby to be held in virtually any position and provides excellent coverage. The Mei Tai can work well or an older child with good head control, but doesn't provide as much coverage. Large-breasted women usually find the Ring Sling easier for feeding because it is generally quicker to get the baby in a low, reclined position.

Q. What kind of carrier is most versatile in terms of age of baby and carrying positions?
A. All Ellaroo carriers are suitable for babies from infancy to toddler hood. Ring Slings are more versatile in regards to carrying positions, as they allow the wearer to carry the baby on the front, hip or ever the back. The baby can recline, semi-recline or be completely upright, facing sideways, in towards the wearer or looking outwards. The Mei Tai is used for carrying the baby upright facing towards the wearer on the front or back and even on the hip.

Q. Can I wash my sling?
A. Yes. We suggest washing all Ellaroo baby carriers in cold water by hand or in the gentle cycle of the washing machine and hanging out to dry.

This is.... my favourite kitchen tool

It's an onion chopper!
I've had this one for about 5 years now and it gets used almost everyday.
I hate chopping up onions, as they always make me cry and are a bit tedious.... so this little guy has saved me much grief in the kitchen!
As well as onions, I've used it to chop up garlic, nuts, vegies (great for kids meals!) and chocolate.
At one stage I was considering selling Choppers at bpab as they're so good to cut up vegies really quickly and in small pieces too! Maybe I still will, we'll see......

Anyway, this one is on it's way out and soon I'll have to buy the latest model! What a treat!

Thanks to Handmaiden for this weeks' theme.

At bpab, we have added the Layby option at checkout, in time for Christmas!
We will wrap, label and keep all your goodies until you want them sent (close to Christmas), so you don't need to do anything with them (like hide them!) and get on with all the other stuff you need to do.... or just sit back and relax.

"Lay-by is a good alternative to using credit.
There are no interest payments, the service is free and your goods are reserved while you pay them off."

We've listed a step-by-step how to and terms on the info page at the web-shop.
Here are the Terms:

* No minimum purchase

* deposit of 20% required to secure products for Layby
- payment choices: direct deposit into our bank account or Paypal invoice emailed to you

* regular payments made weekly or fortnightly
- after deposit has been made, you will be emailed according to your payment plan, when payments are due

* Layby life of 3 months
- if you have been making regular payments, we can look at extending it.

* you will loose your deposit (20%) if you cancel your Layby, same applies if you don't make payments after we have contacted you and have had no reply (yes, we will telephone you too!) . We will give you 14 days.

* there are no Layby fees (yay!!)

So there you have it.
Any questions, etc. let me know. Otherwise, get to it!

Family spends time together! (thanks to gastro)

Happy to say we have all recovered from what was a lovely weekend of 'quality family time'.
It all started last Friday in the wee hours of the morn. (too early for good people to be awake!) Little L threw up in our bed, on me...... She was a sad soul for the day and by the evening when it was time to go to bed, she was able to have a solid sleep, thus feeling fine on Saturday morning.
Round two came on Saturday night when Mr bpab started complaining about a funny tummy..... at the time I was kind of feeling a bit odd, but didn't want to admit anything was really wrong (it was the middle of the night and I just wanted to go back to sleep.) But it got me thinking that maybe we ate something not quite right for dinner. By then both of us were awake talking about what it could be and slowly I began to feel queasy. Mr bpab had been visiting the to let room for a while now and moved out into the lounge to rest there.
I finally thought I'd get up and as soon as I did, I knew I needed to throw up. THANK YOU for the luxury of a hot shower! I didn't get to brush my teeth (to complete my 'back to normality' sense of feeling) as little L was crying and needed her mummy. Oh, that's right..... got to look after kids still!
By morning, we'd established it was not food poisoning, as now Little C had joined in the fun! (She is refusing to eat what we do...) Instead of vomiting in bed, she asked to have a shower and did it in the bathroom. So basically most rooms are smelling and looking lovely!

So Sunday was spent lying around groaning, complaining, crying, visiting the small room, showering off vomit (we did run out of hot water by the evening, which we've never done before!), changing sheets and clothing, looking after other sickies (that was the crap stuff) as well as (this is the good stuff:) watching lots of movies, napping, lying in bed or on the couch, giving cuddles AND all as a family (as we always try to spend our Sundays!)
Of course little L did all the normal stuff that toddlers do because she was well. But it was probably the first time she observed her parents laying around doing nothing all day!

Monday rolled around and we were feeling much better!
By the end of the day, we had drifted apart for small periods to do our own things....... the time spent as a family was precious, but not destined to last. Well not till next Sunday (and there will be no gastro, cos face it, we don't need it's help to come together again!).

Time to do more washing..............

Welcome to new brand: A good sort

A couple of storage savy and very organised mummies have just made our lives that much less chaotic! Thanks to this little beauty - my org. family organiser.
It has everything you need to keep your life sorted and eliminate paper piles. (So you can put nice things on your fridge, like kids drawings etc.... instead of bills and sports time tables!)
It's 2009 ready........ so what are you waiting for?
