Hello…I am so late blogging this…I thought I’d already done it! These lovely photos are part of a series of images created by Jessica Garvin of LittleBabyGarvin blog to showcase the new Pillowfort range by Target…only they kind of showcase the Reg size Moozle teepee too 🙂 Happy me…thanks Jessica x

Wait what…

Hello, it seems I have been somewhat neglecting my lil’ole blog… I really don’t know how all those ‘proper’ bloggers manage to do it… keep up with exciting blog posts, wonderful photography, amazingly styled homes and children… not to mention fabulous looking meals! It’s all to much for me… my kids (Just 2 of them… don’t get me started on bloggers with 3, 4, 5, 22 children…) finish school at 2pm which means I have between 8.50am – 1.50pm to work (email, accounts, sew, order materials etc, pack orders, clean/tidy) hence not much bloggin’ gets done… don’t get me started on evenings! I suppose I do have time between 9.30 and 10.30pm… some eveings… maybe I should try to blog then? Nah, life’s to short! Enjoy your time, do what you want with it, lets stop pressuring ourselves 🙂

So, this post is really a post about nothing… I just wanted to post ‘something’ so my blog isn’t stuck on ‘Christmas 2015’ any longer.

Here’s some lovey photographs from someone who can do it all, one of my customers, Mae Gabriel, follow her on Instagram to see more of her amazingness here. Follow me if you want to see lots of teepees, some coffee and ‘stuff’ here 😉

Mae also has a beautiful blog here.

Or from my Etsy shop here.

Holy-moley… I blogged this year! Where’s the coffee?

Moozle goes Tribal with Hooligan’s Magazine

image(1) image(2)

Hello hello… have you seen the new issue of Hooligan’s Magazine yet? I am thrilled the BIG Moozle teepee got to play a part in their desert shoot for the September issue out now! They shot in 102 degree heat, makes me break into a sweat just thinking about it. But it was worth it – those amazing bright, crisp images! Follow them on Instagram for more Hooligan shenanigans.

“Hooligans is magazine featuring children’s fashion, art and design. This quarterly print publication is full of editorials shot by talented photographers from every corner of the world. We are also highlighting innovative products, the best in interior design and art- all for children!” Purchase your copy via MagCloud.

Well done @gaylinnicole and the Hooligans gang x

If you follow Moozle on Instagram you might have spotted the amazingly bright and sunny bedroom of Hooligans contributor Gaylin’s son Jace (also in the shoot above), who has his very own Moozle MIDI teepee. This is how it looks in Jace’s room in sunny Southern California…

Christmas 2014 Round-up

Hello and welcome new readers and old, it has been a really busy Christmas (and New Year so far) so appologies for the lack of blog action recently.

I’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who ordered Moozle tents in the run up to Christmas, we did indeed sell out of some designs right at the end (again! even though we made a lot more stock in anticipation), so sorry to anyone who didn’t get to order in time, shipping times to some destinations mean ordering quite some time in advance.

There’s been a lovely stream of photos coming in over on instagram, so great to see where the teepees end up and to see them in their new homes being enjoyed by your little one’s is what it’s all about.

Here’s a little taste of instagrams #moozleteepee #moozlehome @katemoozle

party food Food-detail candles

A little boy here turned 4 last weekend so we had a woodland themed party to celebrate, lots of woodland themed party food topped off with a toadstool cake.

The kids loved seeing the party food, lots of ooohs and aaaahhh’s 🙂 The favours were individual chocolates shaped as toadstools or hedgehogs in clear celophane with ribbon on – I didn’t manage to photograph them as I was too busy keeping an eye on everyone! We did an Autumn craft project of threading lots of pine cones, conkers (horse chestnuts), leaves, acorn cups and other woodland bits onto string – they actually look really lovey – I’ll post some pics of ours when I get them off my phone!

For the cake, I used 3 layers of Victoria sponge to make the top of the toadstool, glued together with strawberry jam and whipped cream and sort of sculped it into shape, then covered with a light layer of butter icing before draping and molding the rolled out fondant icing over the top. It took about an hour to decorate the cake (putting the butter icing in the fridge for a few minutes between each stage).

I’m sneaking in this customer photo too as the tree kind of goes with the woodland theme (see what I did there), thank you to Lianne for the super photo. See more customer pics on the Moozle instagram feed here.

The headband is by A Tiny Arrow, gold mini moccasins by Mini Moxie, the sequined dress was made from a women’s dress thrifted by her mom. If I could get away with wearing that outfit, I would!

The teepee in the background is indeed a BIG Moozle teepee, these are proving very popular with photographers at the moment as tepees are still in hot demand for family and particularly 1st birthday photo sessions, there’s another one in the pipeline I’m waiting to share with you, Moozlehome Facebook fans will already have had a sneaky preview of this! ‘Like’ us on Facebook to be first to see all of the new designs, customer photos and special offers as they come in.

Look at these gorgeous photos from Little Baby Garvin Blog. Harper has her new ‘big girl bedroom’ now with her reg size Moozle teepee in her room. Jessica has done a super job with the decor, keeping it neutral with some lovely pops of color, this room can really evolve and grow as Harper does, I like the overall feeling of calm and the fun touches with the rainbow tassle garland and rockin’ pig!

The pic above is an Instagram photo, that’s why it is so darn small. The photo is of  a BIG Moozle teepee taken by Majbrit Abildlund in her beautiful home in Denmark. You can follow her instagram feed at majbritabildlund.

These 2 cute pics at the bottom of this post are by Jamie Dettler in Arizona (I think she’s in AZ, it hard to tell from her blog and her ig account!) she blogs at littleleonardohana and you can see her ig feed here jamiemamie2013  I think you can tell by her blog she is hugely inspired by the lovely Jessica at littlebabygarvin who posts super pics of her Moozle teepee from time to time, my fave so far is this one below taken from Harper’s 1st birthday shoot 🙂

Thank you for sharing your photos ladies – keep them coming!

The printed Moozle teepee was designed by the fabulous Beth Oladipo, if you haven’t already checked out her new brand SCENERY homewear and accessories, what are you waiting for?

Busy little sewing bee

Another busy week sewing has flown on by, I have been working on one particular bespoke teepee tent most of the week, I’ll post some snaps over the weekend (when I find some time and floor space to take them – between boxes of plain teepee stock and Dexter’s brio train track it’s difficult to know where to turn).

I’ve had some lovely customer comments recently that I love to share (show off) and a super photo that arrived this afternoon of a teepee I sent earlier this week – nice work postie! So here goes…

We are in love with this teepee! Best Christmas gift ever! And the personalization was just perfect. Thank you so much! Olivia, Oakland CA, USA.

Hi Kate, teepee has arrived, it’s amazing and I love it, kids will be super thrilled on their return from school, have attached a pic…..thanks so much for your hard work. Laura, Hove, UK

Just letting you know we love the tipi. It looks excellent. Beautiful item will shop here again. Deanna ,Winnipeg, Canada (BIG teepee).

This is a fantastic product. Fabulous quality and very fast shipping, given that it was a custom order placed during the holidays. Our grand-daughter loves it. (She calls it her “office.”) Thank you so much! Patricia, Chicago, USA   (MIDI size teepee with name and felt heart).

Laura Lyford Hove, UK

Thank you Laura for the photo, I hope the kids had a nice surprise when they got home from school. This was a custom order MIDI teepee, I have plain teepees, MIDI and regular size in stock you can order one here for dispatch next week, custom designs do take a little longer and at the moment I have a 2-3 week waiting list, please contact me via the Moozle website if you’d like a quote.

I must mention the great massage I had last week with Tanya at Radiant Life Care, I was aching from sewing/sitting at my desk to long, my shoulders hadn’t really recovered from the work load at the end of last year. I’m going to make treatment from Tanya top of my list for keeping sane and healthy this year, what an experience meeting Tanya was, she actually reads your body as she works on you and gives lots of insight and advice, I recommend a visit if you need some positive energy and a massage (it’s more than that really, it’s body and soul therapy from a health goddess).

Take a look at my Instagram to see some of the designs I’ve been working on and also the super cute letter that Dolly sent to the tooth fairy last week.

Happy New Year folks

Zara.Madrid

Happy New Year to you. I hope 2014 is a fun and fulfilling year with lots of love and happiness for us all.

I am taking some time right now to develop new ideas, and be inspired, chill out with the kiddos after the hectic lead up to Christmas and make the most of the mild weather we have in Amsterdam right now (the cold is coming next week apparently, brrrrrrr).

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the lovely people who ordered teepees from Moozle before Christmas. December and November were record sales months for us and we feel very privileged that so many people set out to buy a Moozle teepee for their little ones last Christmas.

My aim for 2014 is to grow Moozle steadily, and keep producing beautiful new applique designs for you to love, to work on some exciting collaborations and seek out new shoot locations for photos of Moozle tents (any suggestions welcomed).

Thank you to Zara in Madrid for the lovely customer photo above.

And also to Michelle in Toronto for my fave recent customer comment…

It was a big hit with my niece at Christmas. She pretty much ignored all the other toys she got and spent the night sleeping in the tent. Score ONE for the best auntie in the world!

What a lovely photo! This beaut has been sent by Jessica at Littlebabygarvin blog, the photo is one from baby Harper’s 1st birthday photo shoot, there are more over on her blog, which is definitely worth checking out as her way with words really makes me smile so much and her photos are super cute.

I can’t get over Jessica’s back yard (yes, this photo is really taken in her back yard!) that tree filled backdrop is so lovely, Harper is going to have a ball making dens and playing hide and seek when she’s older.
