A Photo Post

It has, as usual, been super busy around here lately, but I think that we are mostly striking a balance. . . .

 there has been time for a little duck watching,

 harvesting goodies from the veg garden,

 Rummage Style custom dresses are being made and posted,

 little hands are keeping busy,

and just sometimes there is a little time for me to chill out!

Gosh, it has been a little hectic around here lately!  I am head down bum up sewing my way through all these orders but it has all been GREAT!  See, I told you that 2013 was going to be a good one for Rummage Style.  

It has been a little bit of a challenge to find that balance between work and play and you know, things like making sure my children aren't up to too much mischief while I am distracted with answering emails or something...

Sometimes things do get a little out of, ahem, hand!

There have been many late nights sewing away while the family is in bed and I have gotten a bit tired at times but I am always grateful for being able to work from home.  I get to hang out with the fam during the day and also get to work on my business - it's a win win situation (although my tired body might not agree at times!).  Still, we find times for fun things; yesterday was just too hot to stay at home in the house so we packed up the kids and went to the local public pools - was great even though I am constantly trying to not gag at icky public pooly things.  I just can't get out of my head that I am having a bath with hundreds of complete strangers, and don't get me started on walking around bare foot through puddles of water in the change rooms - YUCK!  Anyhow, I try to contain my repulsion and take one for the team.
After the pool it was off to the ice-cream shop for dinner, no I mean special treat!

Frankie Mag plug!

Within 24hrs yesterday I got more online custom dress orders than what I was expecting in the entire year!
It seems that Frankie Mag decided to do a little plug for us on their blog and facebook page....and Rummage Style changed over night...

The in-laws were called to help with the kids, there were emergency dashes to get more fabric, I was having conversations to people on my phone whilst having another at the same time via email; it was crazy!  But totally great.  Things have calmed now and I am sorted, the orders are piled and sewing has started.

It was a weird thing at the beginning of this year, I just knew it was going to be good for Rummage Style - I have been working hard and now reaping some rewards...

If you want to see what all the fuss is about go to my shop and check out the Scarlett Dress .  This is the dress that they featured and the one that everyone has ordered.
Well, it's early, the kids are still in bed and I need a coffee!
