I am happy to announce that the very hip children's clothing label, Three Little Trees, now stock Flirty Bird! You can visit their gorgeous shop online here to see the selected range of bobby pins, clips and ponytail holders in stock.
Also I have had the pleasure of creating a custom range for them from their beautiful fabrics.
I had trouble cutting up one of these...

and this...

(Aren't they scrumptious!)
To make these...

So drop by Three Little Trees and grab and outfit with matching hair accessories, you can't get much better than that!
(They have a sale on at the moment so hurry before it ends!!!)

I love my customers!

I love it when I get emails from customers that are happy with their order, I have had quite a few this week and really wanted to acknowledge all of you for making Flirty Bird what it is. Thank you to all of you who have taken the time out of your day to email me and send me photo's of my accessories - it really makes my day to see all the cute little faces under the headbands, clips and ponytail holders not to mention the faces of people that I have had numerous conversations with about custom orders and how to get little girls to wear their hair accessories (something that I am failing at miserably....Poor Scarlett really needs her mummy to set aside some time to dedicate to hair accessory wearing training!)

I just had to share this photo sent from a lovely customer of her little girls in their new clips. Tanya is a big Blythe Doll Fan and I made up 2 pairs of Blythe Doll Clips for her oh so cute daughters and her Blythe dolls. I love it.

Keep the emails and photos coming - I love a big head!

Oh, and for all other Blythe fans out there, yes I can make Blythe Doll hair accessories, just contact me through the website to discuss!

Yesterday I received a lovely parcel in the mail from Shannon who owns Mini Mermaid. She emailed me to let me know that she had a present for me which is just lovely since we have never met.

I am blown away by some of the friendships that I have made since starting Flirty Bird, people are so kind and generous with their time, knowledge and products and Shannon is one of those people that you see always sharing everything she has learnt in business and always lending products for photo shoots.

Look at all the lovely fabric she sent to inspire me....

If everyone was like Shannon the world be a nicer place!

Favourite Photo - Tagged!

Tonight I have been tagged by Little Diva for a fun challenge, and I am always up for a challenge!

It was originally started by Fat Mum Slim and these are her words:It's really simple. I love how every photo tells a story. Some short stories, some long tales. I want to know what is your favourite photo of yourself. Everyone has one. The photo they look at and smile. It reminds them of something, some time, some place. A moment in time.So share the photo, share the story and then tag three other people. I want to see photos and stories all around the blogosphere.

This is my photo...... I am sitting with scarlett on christmas day 2008. I just look at it and it makes me happy, it is just a candid shot of our life but one I will cherish forever.

Now to tag my three...

The Trash Tie Braid

No comments:

Over the next week or so I will try to show you all a few hair styles using the Trash Ties that I will soon have in my hot little hands.....the first being the braid.

To create a braid with a modern twist wrap a TRASH TIE
around a portion of your hair (choose a bight colour to stand out of a colour close to your own hair colour if you don;t want the trash tie to be seen). Gather more hair and then wrap again. Repeat until braid is complete.

Too easy!

Stay tuned for more great ideas..

Getting to know...


The basics of what a trash tie can do...

At the core of every TRASH TIE is a durable, heat tempered wire, which is made to be bent over and over. This wire is what puts the twist in Trash Ties.

Use Trash Ties as a headband or pony-wrap

Wrap a portion of hair tightly, like a ponytail, or pigtail.

Spiral the remainder of the tie down the length hair, leaving about 3-4” unwrapped.
Coil hair into a bun, or mini-rosette.
Stitch the Trash Tie end through the hair next to your head to “hook” the bun in place. Wrap tightly.

TRASH TIES will hold even the most heavy hair securely when wrapped tightly in place.

Many hair styles may be created where TRASH TIES won’t even show. To do so, select TRASH TIES that blend with your hair color.

With a drop of soap and a quick rinse, TRASH TIES are hand-washable.

When it’s time to let your hair down, un-fold your TRASH TIES instead of tugging them straight, to prevent kinks...

Aren't you excited that they will be available here soon?
If you are a retailer that would love to stock something new and exciting contact me here.

Do you need to mulch your garden?

Moopy and Me


I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!

I have been lacking inspiration this week. It is cold and I can't seem to get my body into action all I want to do is sit under a blanket in front of heating. I have achieved a fraction of what I set out to do and only said yesterday that I needed something to get me going.....

Today that inspiration arrived...

I woke up to an email in my inbox from Isaac Bailey....Isaac Bailey you say,who is that and how is that exciting? Issac Bailey is Heather Bailey's husband!

Heather Bailey, for those of you who don't have a fabric obsession like me is the savvy lady who designed the fabric that I purchased for the backdrop of my recent photo shoot....

Heather is one talented gal who doesn't stop at designing fabrics, it is well worth sitting down with a warm drink and if nothing else taking in her beautiful photos from her blog. While browsing through her beautiful creations and inspiring blog posts I came across one of her inventions - Trash Ties - The Coolest New Hair Thingie TM.

I knew immediately that Trash Ties would be a great success here in Australia and wanted to be able to offer them to my customers as well as others who I know would love them.

Today, I am happy to say that the email from Issac gave me the OK to distribute them exclusively throughout Australia!

So I am going to be busy busy again and will need to post more about how they work and how brilliant they are shortly, but you can see here just how cool they are in the meantime.

To Celebrate my achievement I am going to give away 3 packs of Trash Ties to one random followers of my blog. If you follow my blog now you have automatically been entered into the draw. If you sign up to follow this blog before the 31st July 2009 you will also go in the draw.

If you want another chance at winning sign up for my newsletter as I will be running a separate giveaway in my next mailing!

Everyday I get a lovely email from Bondville, a beautiful blog that highlights all things beautiful and funky with the main categories including Australian Artist Spotlight and stylish kids, it is nice each day to just read what steph has written as I don't get to read many books anymore - between having a one and two year old and my third baby, Flirty Bird it is pretty much impossible.
As I was reading today's post I noticed an older post about the movie 27 dresses - which I love - so I took a little look see.
It linked me to the 27 dresses website where you get to upload your photo and create a bridesmaid dress. Of couse, I couldn't is mine.

Bryony's Beautiful Bridesmaids

1 comment:

A few months ago I got an order for some of my green posie rings.
I was honored when I was contacted by Bryony who had ordered the rings to let me know that she had bought them for her bridesmaids to wear on her wedding day. Bryony said that she would send me a photo of the rings and asked me to remind her as she is currently pregnant and that means one thing..she is forgetful!
I must admit that I forget and was very happy to receive the below photo this week.

What a trio of lovely ladies!

Thanks Bryony for remembering me among some of the most special days in your life.
