Welcome to new brand: Alphalfabeetroot

What a mouthful! Alphalfabeetroot...... (there's the alphabet hidden in it somewhere)
This is our new alphabet range and the first lot of products at bpab are the textured letter canvases.
Measuring 25x25cm, there are 3 layers to explore by touch and sight.
Hand made in Melbourne using partial recycled materials.
You choose the letter, we whip it up in a day... ready to hang!
And they're only $30 each!

Gone a little bit girly....

Papoose have some great girlie accessories - all hand felted and really cute too!
The brooches are big and bold - for the older girls and mummies.
The hair ties and clips can mix and match with any outfit and the chunky bangles come plain or with flowers on them.

Type 'felt freebie' in the comments box at checkout when you buy any 2 Papoose items and I'll throw in a felt freebie with your order! (offer ends 2nd Nov.)

Who's King of the castle now??

Me! Me!
It's a great day when the boys can play with crowns too!
Be a King, a Knight, a Prince, a Superhero........ we've got felted crowns (4 types) for the boys. They are strong and tie up at the back - so will fit lots of different head sizes.... yep, even daddies can play too!

Of course the girls have not been forgotten.... as if!
There are 4 different crowns for them too. Be a Fairy, Princess, Queen, a Fairy Princess..... you know the story.

Check them out in the new 'dress ups' section at bpab . Only $13.95 each.... cheap enough for the Christmas stocking! And Fair Trade made too.

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!

Welcome to new brand: Teeny me

The girls curled up in their own Snooze Sacs from Melbourne label Teeny Me after I finished taking photos of the sacs for the shop. They absolutely adore them! And Chai fell asleep soon after too!!! So cute!

So finally, kinder mummies everywhere can rejoice in the fact that we have Snooze Sacs for your little one!
The base is padded and the blanket is soft. The blanket has an appliqued animal on it and is secured to the base at the bottom.
It rolls up and fastens with Velcro straps. Includes a shoulder strap and a name label sewn onto the outside of the base to record your child's name on their sac.
Easy for little ones to carry around and fun to snuggle up into too!
