3 MONTHS OF BABY BLUR!

September 17, 2013

So I realise that I'm pretty useless at this whole blogging thing, anyway! But, I've been a little distracted the past three months with the newest addition to the PaperKrane family. I seriously don't know where the time has gone?!

Her name is Wren (my little baby bird) and she arrived on the 14th of June, 2013. She sure didn't waste any time in getting here, one week early and took a short 6 hours from go to whoa. (I was expecting the worst, possibly a three day marathon with emergency c-section! So 6 hours and a natural birth was a pretty nice experience for a first baby.) And just like Marnie (the midwife at our antenatal classes) said, the gas is great! Not that I thought so right in the middle of a whopping great back contraction. (She was posterior until the last possible minute.)

   

GROWING, GROWING, ALWAYS GROWING!! 

So, lately I've been attempting to get a few new things made as I've kept my online store open the whole time and stock is starting to dwindle, especially in the smaller sizes. Everybody warned me about the lack of time I would have, but nobody really told me how hard it would be to peel myself away from a delicious little baby sleeping in my arms. She's just so cute! (Bit biased, but that's the way it goes, right?)

So... I've got a lot of work to do. I've been looking at new ways to get PaperKrane out there and have discovered a bunch of awesomely creative people through Instagram. I've even connected with a lovely lady named Joleen, who lives in Atlanta with her two Benjamins, takes fantastic photos and discovers cool new baby brands for her son to wear and to blog about.

I've taken up some advertising on her website HERE (go check her page out, you will find me on the right hand side along with a bunch of other choice baby brands.) Keep your eyes peeled for a review of PaperKrane booties (and an awesome giveaway) at the end of this month on Joleen's website/Instagram page.

Here are some of the new things I've been making since Wren arrived... not much, but I'll get there. The future looks exciting, and like a lot of work!

PaperBabe Blankies, new fabric/style hightop booties, new packaging and labels (With hand carved stamps by Tyr from This is Just to Say) and some baby carrier strap covers. (Something I've found handy while carting Wren around in the Ergobaby.) 

That's all for now! Like I said, keep your eyes peeled for new things, and chances to win some great PaperKrane items.

PAPERKRANE SIZE CHARTS

FOR BEST RESULTS... please measure both feet while standing with heels against a wall, marking on paper where the longest toe/s are, and the middle of the heel. (Choose a size that fits your longest foot)

If the shoes will be worn with socks, please wear the socks and then measure in the same manner. 

Leave at least 10 - 12mms of space between the longest toe and the inside lengths below.

If your/your child’s feet measure close to the end of the inner measurements on the charts below, we recommend you size up.

While the length measurements are the same across our styles, the upper construction affects the volume. See HERE for a more detailed description of each of our PaperKrane styles.
