Posted by | Latest News | No Comments

I am very excited to announce that I have added a new product range to my offer at Joyjoie, the wonderful CRAFTHOLIC Cuddle Buddies!!!

Buying in products to sell is new for me as I love to create the items I sell. These Cuddle Buddies are a rare exception as they complement my range of teepees so beautifully.  It all began when I started using the creative directors much loved sloth in teepee photoshoots and he looked so adorable in there with or without her.

To sleep, snuggle or play, CRAFTHOLIC Cuddle Buddies are available in four loveable characters called CRAFT’s -RAB (The Rabbit), SLOTH (The Bear), LORIS (The Monkey) and KORAT (The Cat).

Created by renowned Japanese artist, Ikuko Yamamoto, CRAFTHOLIC has taken the world by storm.

With the power to make everyone fall in love with just one cuddle, become a ‘CRAFTHOLIC’ and Get Addicted!

I have a selection of my favourites to sell initially and will expand the available range in time (or by request). After Ari claimed the Loris monkey on sight (I really should have seen that coming) here is what I have available now …

Cushion floor mat

A new type of floor mat

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

A recent request for an organic floor mat instigated a flurry of activity and result is a cotton cushion cover in compartments. Each compartment can be filled with a standard pillow of the type preferred in your home be it feather, polyfill or some other materials.

Inside or outside a teepee this floor play mat is a soft and comfy place for reclining and sitting while you play, read or relax. Children and parents can enjoy the comfort of this one too!

The creative director has given the cushion floor mat her seal of approval and has taken up semi-permanent residence on the prototype.

Available in the regular size, family size or in a custom size and a variety of colours.

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

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.

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
