Secret Myths Teepee

Secret Myths Teepees new to Joyjoie

Posted by | Latest News, Teepee's | No Comments

I have always liked dragons, not scary mean ones of computer games but instead the gentle and intelligent creatures I wished were real after reading the Anne McCaffreys “Dragonriders of Pern” books many years ago.

Now I have created a dragon to fit with the one I imagine as I read and he is cute with a big belly and droplet wings. He is also the star feature of the newest joyjoie kids teepee in the secret fairytale range, Secret Myths.

This first teepee has been made with Ninja fabric for the trees and red and black dragons and I cannot wait to make it again for fellow dragon lovers.

Secret Greenwood Teepee new to Joyjoie

Posted by | Latest News, Teepee's | No Comments

Brand new to joyjoie is the Secret Greenwood teepee.

I am astounded it did not occur to me sooner that a bear in the woods would make a very cute teepee especially a baby bear with a dragonfly teasing it and when accompanied by a baby deer and rabbit.

The truly tricky part to this teepee was coming up with a new name but I finally settled on Secret Greenwood and kind of like the old world feel of it.

Cool For Kids Teepee

Posted by | Latest News, Teepee's | No Comments

The Creative Director is really getting face out there in print media with her latest appearance – as joyjoie teepee model – in the latest issue of Australian Home Ideas Annual. We are in a Cool For Kids feature with a range of great children’s products…I am really loving the “I am Robot” cushion and of course my Secret Woodland Teepee that they have titled Never Land.

Teepee is Cool for kids

 

As always, if you are interested in purchasing a kids tee pee please let me know or come along to an upcoming event in Sydney. I have a great collection of fabrics at the moment ranging from ninjas to florals and lots in between so we can design something special just right for your family and home.

A Night of Indulgence Winter Pop-Up Market

Posted by | Latest News | No Comments

I am feeling very lucky to be invited to have one of the design art and craft stalls at next weeks A Night of Indulgence Winter pup-up market.

With the advertised fine food, mulled wine, live music, outdoor fireplace, design art and craft stalls it has the makings of a lovely relaxing night out with my husband (daughter safely at home and asleep – I hope – with grandparent in attendance).

I will of course have some teepees with me at my stall along with teepee accessories and ideas for custom teepees that I can make for someone special in time for the next birthday or Christmas (before you say anything I know its too soon to mention but in my world preparation for next Christmas starts as soon as the last one finishes and by this time of year I am in a flurry to get enough teepees made to make the children happy).

Hope to see you there…

- Friday 25th July from 6:30pm
- Indulgent Sage Restaurant, 165 Blues Point Road, McMahons Point, Sydney
- $15 Entry

Elephant Teepee – new design

Posted by | Latest News, Teepee's | No Comments

The Elephant Tepee is a brand new design available as part of the joyjoie Animal Hides range.

The inspiration for this little fellow was a custom request and I am loving him in grey with a pink tusk. Future versions will expand on the colour palette but in the interim if you have specific colours in mind for your own Elephant tee-pee please contact me.

The animal hides teepees will have another new member of soon, perhaps the teepees can go on safari together by the time I am done with all the different animals!

A new space for teepee photos

Posted by | Latest News, Teepee's | No Comments

This weekend I decided to take on the challenge of creating a space for photography in my very cramped, toy cluttered home. Arianna loved this, helping me move things around and take test shots in places as strange as the hallway, kitchen and front steps. We have lived here a while now so all the other more sensible locations have been tested but I am still striving for a certain look.

There was just one more spot to test, a little corner next the the kitchen where the dining table should be but occupied by other paraphernalia too large to be moved on my own (I tried). At this point my husband asked if this would solve the photo problem, of course I said it would and so now I have a brand new photo corner and I am having fun styling it.

Here are a few images of my latest (and current favourite) teepee.

Now I just need some more time to experiment with the space.

Sunday Life Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day!

This Mothers Day has been especially special for me and these are the reasons why

- a rare sleep (8am but it felt like midday!!!)
- breakfast out
- a wonderful gift from my 4 year old made at pre-kindy and kept secret so it truly was a surprise to receive a card and hand painted bag
Mothers Day DIY Bag

- a cover photo of one of my teepees in Sunday Life Magazine, lift our from The Sun-Herald. No the article is not about me or my products, but hey its still my tepee and exciting all the same

Cannot wait to see what else the day has in store, although the next few hours will be a little less of a mothers day spoil as I will be making teepee for the upcoming finders keepers markets
