Toddler Bonnet Patterns

Hi Friends! Guess what! You’ve probably guessed by the title, but… Our toddler bonnet patterns are up on etsy now! Yeah! You know, when we started making bonnets, it never occurred to us that someone might want to put their toddler in a bonnet. We thought 18 months was the tops someone would want one for their babe. Let’s face it, it’s been a few days since I’ve had a toddler (about 4380, google tells me) and Mandy was still … Read More

change

It’s not a bad thing, change. Sometimes it can feel like it, but it always leads to something new. New = Exciting (and scary). Polluted Pixie, as you’ve known us for the passed 4 years, is about to change. Metamorphosis. Evolution. Transfiguration. We’re downsizing. We’re getting back to the basics of The Dirty Fairy Enterprise. Starting in April, we’ll be in a new, smaller location. Still in the Quathiaski Cove Plaza, but in the back, in a studio space. Yup, … Read More

A Girl Baby or a Boy?

posted in: polluted pixie, Poppy, Pregnancy | 1

“Maaaandy! This article says that tiny girl fetuses have their placenta on the left and boys have them on the right! What side was yours on?!” Meems closes one eye, deep in thought, holds up a finger, moves it around and says, “Left… no… I don’t know.” So we get out the ultrasound photo and look and…     … we don’t know. Does Poppy even have a placenta? Maybe she gets her nutrients parasite-like from her mother’s bloodstream like … Read More

A Change Room of Our Own.

posted in: diy | 1

We’ve been talking about it for almost a year now, needing a change room.  Customers have been using our tea stained bathroom for far too long.  But, as we like to do, we put it off for a bit, and then a few more bits. Then one day, eons after we first had the idea, we decide to just finally do it. 4 days and 5 trips to our local building supply later, we have a fully functioning change room … Read More

Ermmm… Hi

Sooo….. it’s been a year. More than a year, actually. Sorry, clearly we are the worst at a lot of things, blogging motivation being one of those things (exercising being another, and dealing with recycling… and completing a task to 100% completion and math). But anyways, here I am, saying, “Hi”. Hi. We’ve changed a bit in the last year. And by a bit, I mean hardly at all. We still drink too much tea and eat too much soft … Read More
