“How beautiful”! September 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 8:43 pm

I adore the very cute things that http://kebonikoblog.blogspot.com/ has in stock, be it original jewellery made by the owner or the many other items chosen carefully to fill her shelves, which change constantly as she discovers new “gems”. Definately worth taking a look if you are in the area! Everytime I go in I have to control the urge to buy everything!

Postage and Packaging

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 8:29 pm

I try to recycle packaging so please don’t be horrified to receive your lovely handmade item in a reused jiffy bag! It is better for the environment and keeps postage costs to a minimum!

To give a general idea of postage costs:

UK/Europe

1 pair small shoes           2 euros/1.80GB

1 pair toddler shoes       3.80euros/3.50GB

U.S.A.

1 pair small shoes            2.50euros

1 pair toddler shoes        5.50euros

 

Orders from the UK I can accept bank deposit or cheque.

From Spain I accept bank deposit.

From the rest of the world we can try to come to some sort of arrangement!

Thanks!

 

New Order

Filed under: baby shoes — maitas @ 8:07 pm

I just managed to finish this shop order off before some friends descended upon us for a week with their 2 cute little boys, and my poor little 3 year old started at big girls school (they start em young in Spain). So here is what I did for this lovely shop in Gracia www.lulalalibelula.com and then I dealt with the tears and the new found canabalistic tendency my daughter seems to discovered in herself…!

P1030428

P1030431

I also did the popular pink leopard and red relief designs too that have already featured on the blog.

The bibs are reversable as they have the same material on the back as they do on the applique.

cat competition September 11, 2009

Filed under: Competitions — maitas @ 8:41 pm

I LOVE cats and for want of a pic of my beautiful daughter here I thought I would post one of my slightly hairier first baby, Anoushka. She may look like a beached whale here but I promise you she is NOT overweight!P1020933

Now, I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to see other cat lovers kitties, for me at least anyway!

Send all photos to maitasshoes@gmail.com and I will post them up. Would be good if a witty caption was added but not obligatory.  At the end of the month the best pic will win a pair of  baby shoes like these ones, you choose, boys or girlsP1020612….P1020611Get sending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Off to the shops… September 6, 2009

P1030390I am so excited at having finally finished a set of shoes to take to Mujer. Trying to sew doesn’t combine well with looking after a bored 3 year old. Anyway, I am very pleased with how they have all turned out and I know Lulu will love them.
