Cebra is looking for reps

Want to work from home in your own time and no hard sell?

I've decided I need enthusiastic women selling my fair trade eco range from home. Meaning you can sell it either via your own website, as an affiliate, at fairs and shows, by hosting fairtrade eco parties or through a brochure.
In that respect I need your input. What type of "selling" would interest you the most, what would you feel comfortable with?
If you want to sell through my brochure then I'd need to get feedback as to how many I need to print and what you would like to sell - handbags, jewellery, skin care....?
If you are interested in drop shipping - i.e. you don't have to stock the goods and you don't have to buy them in advance - then that's an option too.
If you want to stock products then you won't have to buy a minimum amount - take for example my wooden toothbrushes (yes - they are cropping up left, right and center) : no need to take 100 in one go. On the other hand, drop shipping would probably be a bit strange with those, but I don't mind... every little helps as the saying goes.
I can give lots of hand holding and advice and there is no hard sell involved. Just go with the flow or go berserk. It's up to you really. Whatever suits you. Ideal for dipping your toe into the retail market and no big outlay costs...
Drop me a line and we can discuss things.
Oh and by the way - all my affiliates receive a link from my website to theirs (see "wholesale"). And as Cebra ranks fairly high in Google that is a pretty good deal...

Counting 123 Book

My little guy is almost 18 months old. Not only are we working on learning the letters of the alphabet, but we are also practicing our numbers too! I teach high school mathematics and I was very excited when my little guy first recognized the number 8! I knew that my next crafting project was going to be making him a fabric numbers book to read. He loves books! Each page on in this book has Paddington Bear blowing bubbles, flying a kite or up to some other activity. Since I have made this book for my little guy, less than a week ago, he has learned two more numbers - 2 and 6! We read with him for at least half an hour everyday. It is so nice to have a handmade fabric book created by his mama mixed in with all of the board books. I have even added a loop at the top of the book so that I can easily clip it to his stroller. If you would like a counting fabric book for your little one, I have listed them in my Etsy Shop, New England Quilter.

Angelina Jolie breastfeeding on the cover of W magazine

The November issue of W Magazine’s front cover features a stunning black and white photo of Angelina Jolie breastfeeding.
The photo was taken by Brad Pitt and shows Angelina wearing a sleeveless blouse revealing part of her breast and a tiny hand resting as the baby feeds. Angelina’s hair is naturally falling over her shoulder and she wears a smile of contentment.

“Angelina posed for Brad in one of the photos while breastfeeding. It’s really beautiful and tastefully done. The photos are amazing,” a Life & Style source has revealed.

The cover headline promises more photos taken by Brad and it’s been reported that the magazine has over 20 photos of Angelina and the family taken by Brad in their family home in France. The interview printed alongside the photos hints at future additions to the Pitt-Jolie family.

This issue of W Magazine goes on sale on the 21st October.

Credit Crunch Baby Boom

It’s been in the news lately that the current credit crunch is causing a baby boom.
With people having less money to spend on nights out to the cinema, dining out or pubs couples are making their own free entertainment at home and beating the credit crunch blues with a bit of bedroom fun!
There has already been an increase of sales in Maternity wear and pregnancy tests!
Is 2009 going to see a baby boom? - we think so!
It can be hard buying maternity clothes on a budget so start with basics such as a few good tops that can be worn smart or casual (top tip - Wrap arounds or Rouched tops will last the longest), a pair of comfortable maternity trousers and a classic black dress that you can wear to work or out with friends.

BoulieBags are Back!

I started making mini handbags for mini ladies (otherwise known as little girls) last year and they were a bit hit. Each bag is unique and each is embellished with a Chichiboulie images printed onto a cotton appliqué which is then stitched onto the bag.

This year I wanted to try something new so I have made up some BoulieBags in felt. What a fabulously fun fabric!

The first BoulieBags have been listed in my Etsy store with more to come. I hope to make up some "Make Your Own Boulie Bag" kits as well. Both make wonderful gifts for little girls (otherwise known as mini ladies) as my own daughters will attest!

Available through Chichiboulie.
