Amsterdam-mamas

Hello, sorry for the lack of posts recently – I’ve been busy with orders, new designs and planning a new product! Very exciting, more on that soon I hope.

I wanted to share this interview that has just gone live that I did a while ago for Amsterdam Mamas, a fantastic website here in NL. You can see the full interview here.

I also have a lovely new customer review to show off…

Shipped super fast. I was nervous about figuring out how to put it together but the directions were well written, only took me a few minutes to set up. This teepee is so cute and very well made. Worth the price and my son loves it! Thanks!!

Many thanks Stephanie from Texas, USA for taking the time to review Moozle via Etsy, see more reviews here.

I managed to finish and photograph a new design on Tuesday this week (no mean feat), I listed it on my Etsy shop later that day and hey presto it was sold after a couple of hours, which is fantastic BUT, ment that not many of you lovely folk actually got to clap eyes on the thing… so here it is, you lucky, lucky people (yes, I have a dry sense of humor, not always detected in text).

How do I keep my kids busy whilst getting on with a few jobs after school hours? well I have a few tricks, one of which is chalk board pens (white wash pens), who needs a chalk board – not us! Looks so pretty when the sun shines through making patterns on the curtains and floor.

Blog love…

Hello-ee I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Raspberry Baby Blog –ย “inspirational photography, interior design and great ideas โ€“ all for the sake of crafting a well-styled family.”

Thanks for the super blog post today ๐Ÿ™‚ Thought I’d share this (rather old now) photo, as used on the Raspberry baby blog, of me and the kids on our bakfiets bike. This bike is our family ride and essential for taking teepees to the post office, if you have a Moozle teepee chances are it has been on this bike!

Of course if you live in or near Amsterdam you could always come and pick up a teepee yourself, just like Karen did yesterday. If you would like to save the delivery fee and collect the tent in person please contact me via the Moozle website to arrange a day and time’

Hi Kate, I just wanted to say thanks for the great teepee! Lincoln loves it already, he has hardly been out of it since I set it up yesterday afternoon! ๐Ÿ™‚ Karen.

 

 

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, USAย ย  (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.

Customer comment

I’ve just received such a lovely email from a customer I couldn’t wait to share it… it is from a lady in Copenhagen who contacted me just last week to see if I could do a teepee in time for her daughters birthday, I sent it on Friday and thank goodness it arrived yesterday as the birthday is today! That was close ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t have time to set it up to photograph before I packed it up but I did quickly take a couple of snaps, here is one of them…

I’ve never seen her so excited about something before! Really, she loves it and so do we.

Customer photos

Shana Druckermannelly, from Zoe Ebeyer

I have two new customer photos to share with you – thanks to Sharna for posting the top pic to Pinterest and to Zoe in the UK for sharing this sweet photo of Nellie having a tea party in her Moozle teepee.

I also received this super comment from Beth in Cincinnati this week…

Hi Kate, I wanted to let you know that the tent did arrive in time for my son’s birthday and he absolutely loved it. ย He only wants to come out to eat and take a bath. ย It was a huge hit with both of my kids. ย Thanks so much! Beth.

Thank you so much – what lovely customers I have! You can see more of their lovely comments over on the Moozlehome website here.
