Roll up!! Roll up!! For the greatest circus in town..

Oh how excited was my Little Choopie and I this week when we opened up our new package from Mini Gaga. We won a little prize a week back on the Mini Gaga blog that was sponsored by the lovely ladies at Little Bubble and tree and Alannah Rose. Thank you ladies for promoting and sponsoring such a wonderful and generous prize.

Having wanted to throw a huge circus party for my Little Choopie for his first birthday but then being talked out of it by some well meaning people, I put the idea on the back burner for at least a little while. But now with our new amazing Pango Pants from Little Bubble and Tree and our equally fabulous Circus Invitations from Alannah Rose we are ready to throw a wonderful circus party for our little Lucca. I can't wait!!

If you would like to throw an amazing party, do check the invitations over at Alannah Rose, they are simply divine and would be the talking point of any party. And if you would like to go shopping for some simply fantastic and adorable children's clothing, look no further than Little Bubble and tree. I have my eye on the go fishing nacklace for little boys! CUTE!! Also if you want to hear about the latest and most exciting products on the market for the wee little ones in your life do head over to Mini gaga for some great reads and equally fabulous competitions!!

We can't wait to get started on Lucca's circus party!! (only have another 4 months to perfect the details!!)

Its Child's play

Don't you just love how little ones are so imaginative. Whether it be the lid of the blocks box, Daddy's slippers or mumma's dressing gown, my Little Choopie just loves to put it on.

A few days back when I was making some of our gorgeous head wraps for a very special customer, My Little Choopie snuck of to try one of mummies creations on... I hope you get a bit of a giggle out of it. I know we did!

Two Burnt fingers and a whole lot of fun!

I have been busy busy these last few days oohing and ahhing over some of the new fabric I just got in. After two burnt fingers (yes those hot glue guns can be quiet hot - believe it or not!) I have produced some new fun ideas now available in store . I am hoping to introduce to you a few new products over the next few days, but if your terribly eager to see them all please visit the shop where you will see all our new stock in all its lovely glory!

I am in love with these pretty little ladies.. If I was a few years younger and had some ballet shoes I would definitely be seen in these every day...

Who is Little Choopie?

Hello and welcome to my first blog, Little Choopie - Made with love.

So I bet your wondering who is this Little Choopie person and how did they come to writing this little blog.

Little Choopie is the affectionate name that I have called my baby boy, Lucca since day dot. I don't know why I did, I had never even heard of Little Choopie before but it just sounded right. Thankfully little Lucca hasn't been too confused with all these names' and will happily answer to both. (F.I: I have since googled "Little Choopie" and besides finding my own website, I have since discovered that Little Choopie is some kind of superhero - so the name is kinda fitting really!)

So your now probably wondering how a little fellah like Little Choopie goes on to having a lovely little shoppe with pr
edominantly girlie things (think lots of pretty girls accessories and whimsical tee's)named after him. Well his mumma (yes that's me!) has always been a bit of a girlie girl. OK so maybe just more than a bit, (think pink bridal showers, matching accessories for every outfit, high teas, and anything that is pretty really.) But with all this testosterone in the house, Little Choopie's mumma felt the need to even things up a bit by creating deliciously girlie accessories and whimsical tees for the baby and toddler in your life. Loving creating girlie accessories and tees, Little Choopie's mummy felt that something was missing. Some of the fun for her Little Choopie!! So some funky and gorgeous boy baby and toddler tees and bodysuits were thrown into the mix.

So that how this little blog about a little Shoppe called Little Choopie - Made with love came about. (lots of "Little's" isn't there!! but I guess one has to start somewhere ;)

So far we (little Choopie and I) have enjoyed this journey immensely. Stay tuned for more of
our journey as we tell you more about the daily in's and outs of Little Choopie- Made with love
