A busy weekend with koolaman designs - here, there and everywhere!

We had the most wonderful weekend at koolaman designs for different reasons. Stacey was busy flying around the countryside exhibiting the silver with character range at the Mathilda's Market  held in Hobart in the picturesque apple isle and new and exciting Piccadilly Market held in Geelong.

Mathilda's Market in Hobart was full of beautiful things. And, while at Mathilda's Market in Hobart Stacey caught up with delightful Danielle and Monique from B.Box who have a range of  practical and stylish products for parents and her favourite was the nappy wallet. We'll be returning to Tassie on July 17th for the next Mathilda's Market.

The next stop was into Geelong for the new Piccadilly Market held at Deakin Waterfront. The market was held in a stunning spacious venue and there were a large number of retailers with beautiful wares on display. One of Stacey's favourite was Sophie and her husband Justin from Ellani Petite and their gorgeous range of children's accessories. And to the organiser from Piccadilly  Janina Lear for coordinating an impressive event.  We're looking forward to coming back to Geelong again soon.  A list of where and when we'll be exhibiting can be found  here.

While Stacey was jet-setting around the countryside I was having fun at Anthony and Jane's wedding. Jane looked stunning and the groom as handsome as ever. The reception was held on the family farm in a picturesque lakeside setting in southern New South Wales. It was a perfect place to celebrate a wedding of two wonderful people who deserve every happiness together.

Win an ELIZA set of pendants!

In a matter of weeks it will be Miss Eliza's 4th Birthday and to celebrate we're giving away one of the beautiful ELIZA set of pendants. One of our most popular pendants, the ELIZA has been with us since we started koolaman designs way back in 2007.
One of the reasons this necklace has been so popular is that you can add another pendant as your family expands.

Miss Eliza affectionately known as "Lulu"

To win the set which includes three pendants and a 45 cm large ball chain (as pictured).   is easy, and will help me on 'party day' All you have to do is include your party hint,  favourite recipe or an idea to keep a group of 4 year olds entertained, perhaps it's a theme that we can use or what's the thing that you do to make your party run smoothly with as little effort or maybe it's something totally different but is your favourite party thing. Include it on the list please, we'd love to see it.

We've asked Kate from Sambellina who is very well known around the party scene to be the guest judge with this ELIZA giveaway.  Since we discovered her beautiful partyware last year at Magnolia Square, we've been in love. From the gorgeous pale  pink and white dot party cups and matching plates  to the bright red and white dots, there is something for everyone in the Sambellina range of  'kids partyware and stationery' which is not just for kids!
Pop your entry in the comments box here and the competition closes 8pm Wednesday 31st  March, winner will be announced on Thursday evening. If you dont have a Google ID just leave it as anonymous and your name or email address. Just some way that I will be able to contact you.

The beach

After a family gathering in Geelong we spent a couple of days at the beach. Lulu couldn't remember going to the beach before and Bella Boo (18 months) hadn't ever experienced beach sand between her toes and the smell and the taste of salty water.  The kids ran and played and swam and then did it all again, and at the end of the day fell into bed exhausted.
And, on the days when we thought it too cold to swim, the kids from koolaman, stripped off and played and swam in their underwear.
