Little Choopie gets a makeover !

You've gotta love a makeover?!

Amanda from Little Choopie asked me to give her logo a makeover to fit in with the new website she is getting designed and developed (stay tuned!). I had lots of fun sprucing up this lil bird!

I just had to show you some of the Little Choopie products, they are adorable! (see above).
Little Choopie is a petite home-based business situated in Melbourne, Australia.
Selling handmade t-shirts, onesies, and gorgeous accessories all 'made with love'. The perfect inexpensive gift; choose from bobbie pins, ponytail holders, headwraps, button earrings, button rings and necklaces. Amanda also takes custom orders! fantastic!

Nevermind the kids...Im seriously considering getting some hair accessories for myself!

Add Little Choopie to your faves list and keep an eye out for the new website...coming soon.

Stylish Canvas Art for Modern Kids

While I'm on this Circus / Monkey / Train theme I thought you might like a sneek peek at some of my canvas artworks. This is one of my fave designs, that's why I had modified it and made a 'circus train' party theme for Jacks Birthday. I have the blue one with the two monkeys in a carriage in 30x30cm size hanging on Jack's bedroom door. I love it ! Let me know what you think ? and if you can't wait till I release the canvas art range on my website then feel free to email me at

another of my passions...

I just LOVE styling children's parties !! My sons birthday is in December, so these aren't exactly recent but I wanted to show you as this is another passion of mine.

Jacks first birthday was a 'fun in the sun' theme, we had a paddling pool and sandpit in the backyard, and I made up party boxes for the kids with a rake/shovel, a bath squirt and a couple of sweet treats.

Jacks second birthday was a 'circus train' theme. I had lots of fun with this one ! The train and animals are actually from one of my kids canvas artworks (stay tuned for news on Style Me Gorgeous - Childrens Canvas Artworks). I made co-ordinated party hats for the kids and a crown for Jack. I also made a co-ordinating birthday banner, napkin rings, and party bag tags. My creative (whiz in the kitchen) friend Ali made the cute lil monkey cupcakes for us! The cute pic of Jack with cake all over his face was perfect for the thankyou cards I sent out the following week!

ooh only 6 months till Jacks 3rd birthday party...I can start planning soon lol...YAY!

Sometime after my second child is born (once Im not so sleep deprived) I plan to launch the Childrens Stationery and Canvas Art side of Style Me Gorgeous; birthday invites, announcements, thankyou's and much more. Feel free to email me in the meantime if you are interested

Star Mums In Business

Stacey and Kelly of Mummy Went To Market are two mumpreneurs who wanted me to come up with a funky logo and website to represent themselves and their brilliant new fruit and veg business concept. I really enjoyed doing this logo, it was great working with these much energy and excitement happening ! I have to tell you all about MWTM, I have a feeling they will be HUGE !

Mummy Went to Market is a locally (Newcastle and Hunter Valley, NSW) owned business, operated by two mums, Stacey and Kelly, who know how hard it is to juggle the demands of life.
Fed up with the rising costs of feeding their families healthy food, not to mention finding the time to get to the supermarket with children in tow...they decided to head to the markets to see what they could buy. With a desire to make it easy for other families to get the essentials each week at an affordable price, they created a business that meets those needs.

Each week these two Mummies get up early, pull on their funky pink paisley gumboots and head off to the markets... selecting a variety of quality produce that has been delivered fresh to the markets that morning, they carefully pack each box by hand, and deliver it that same afternoon.

To all you Newcastle / Hunter Valley families...I have a MWTM box delivered every week, and highly recommend this fantastic service, anything that cuts down the time spent in the supermarket with a whinging 2 year old is FABULOUS ! The produce is yummy and fresh, and its exciting to get something different every week, it encourages you to add a bit of variety into your family meals rather than getting stuck making the same thing every week :-)

Visit the website for more information on franchising opportunities, gift boxes and fundraising !

SAVE TIME AND MONEY - try MWTM out today...and spread the word !

Congratulations girls !

I thank Lou again for this wonderful opportunity to be a part of such an innovative and exciting project. Lou asked me to create a logo and website for her new baby...Trifle. The brief called for me to create a brand for Trifle that would be synonymous with style and design, along with a gorgeous (I can do gorgeous!) and whimsical website. I really enjoyed working on this project and of course Lou was a pleasure to work with, I can't wait for this one to launch !

Skout Trade Fair

The excitement all started when I joined Skout Trade Fair and met Lou (Louise Donnelly-Davey). Wow...what can I say about the lovely Lou...those of you who have had the pleasure in crossing paths with this creative, talented, kind and generous woman....will know how amazing she is. A mother, mentor, business consultant (the list goes on), Lou loves to help others in making their business's successful. Lou is an inspiration to me, and has given my business a start that I will never forget her for..Mwah xx

Lou is the founder of Skout Trade Fair, it is a fabulous social networking site, 'the place to be seen if you buy, sell, design, represent, write about or even photograph fabulous kids, baby & mummalicious products!'. Joining STF has been the best thing I have ever done for my career (aside from taking the leap to start Style Me Gorgeous!), STF is brimming with amazing women who are all keen to share, help and offer advice. Im feeling all warm and fuzzy talking about it !

Speaking of YUMMY...have you heard of Trifle....Layers Of Lovely....

a bit about me...

I have been working as a Graphic Designer for over 8 years now. After much encouragement from my husband, family and friends, I have taken the leap and started my own business based on my passion of designing for the baby/kids/mummies industries. I feel blessed to be doing something I love so much, and as I am quickly discovering, owning your own business and being able to help others create their dream business is so fulfilling.

I have a wonderful, supportive husband and a beautiful two and a half year old boy, Jack, we are expecting a new addition to our family in October (more inspiration is on its way!).

I am truly overwhelmed and excited about the amazing and inspirational women/mums that have entered my world in the past couple of months since starting SMG. You will hear more about a few of these ladies in following posts.
