Should we or Shouldn't we??

For a little bit of time now we have been back and forth between do we or don't we start a newsletter.....
So we thought we would throw it open and ask for your thoughts on the issue.
Our questions for you are:

  • How often would you like to receive a Cackleberry Kids newsletter? Monthly / Bi-Monthly / Quarterly?
  • What would you like to see in the newsletter?
  • We would be looking at incorporating some guest writers into the mix. We are hosting a number of information nights and workshops and will have guest speakers on Nutrition, Allergies, Fitness for Mums & their Bubs, Fashion; shape/colour/style, Birthing coaches just to name a few.... would you like to see a snapshot of those workshops in the newsletter?
  • Give aways?
Please post your comments below.....

Thanks so much for your help - we really appreciate it as we want to make our newsletter worthwhile, relevant and interesting for you : ) xx

Learning to accept your Good

I wrote a blog a month or so ago about being able to spend a little time on me and just take a step back... well Learning to spend some time on me and Learning to be accepting of the good things that come our way as business women, wives and mums.....

Not sure that I'm doing as well as I would have liked, however am pleased to report that small steps in a forward direction have taken place and slowly slowly catch the monkey progress has been made.

The interesting thing is that because I wrote about it on our blog, I feel a need to report in and acknowledge the small steps.... accountability?? ummm not sure!

I did receive a lovely email from someone who said that they were so happy when I posted the previous blog because they didn't feel so alone anymore.... so I made a promise to post another blog (when I felt ready) so that we could continue our journey together rather than doing it on our own.

I read a lot about many different aspects of life, love and happiness and have found quite a connection with a few of the authors that I have discovered... I find their books to be rewarding and confronting at the same time. The great thing is that I have made a commitment to learn how to better accept my Good and to accept that I am Deserving of my Good - it's proving to be such a better head space already..... even with one step forward and two steps back!

I'll keep you posted!

Please meet Jenny Farrelly!

Jenny Farrelly, an emerging Australian warm glass artist has always been passionate about art and has experimented in many different mediums. “I started working with warm glass and was seduced by the freedom and excitement of creating abstract and contemporary designs through fusing glass.

My passion for the art has increased my desire to experiment and manipulate the glass by adding different metals to produce reactions. This creates great depth and texture, you can see and touch, giving life to the art.

I love colour so being inspired and captivated by nature and our beautiful Australian landscape comes easy.

The thrill I get when I have designed that special gift for a client that takes their ‘breath away’ is what makes this journey in glass the most wonderful, thrilling ride I never want to get off.
My dream is to create unique, desirable glass gifts that takes your breath away and the person you purchase for.
Without a doubt, you can see the passion in each piece of Jenny's work. The intricate details, the different techniques used to bring out the colours are breathtaking.
We are so honoured to have Jenny's gorgeous pieces in our store - they are made with love and rather than just being pieces of jewellery or a bowl, they are stand out pieces of artwork!
Unique, Stylish and Beautiful.
