Facebook is a wonderful thing

Facebook has helped my little business grow so much. As a reward we are on Sale. Be quick as the items are getting snapped up



I'm totally in love with my latest piece - do you know how hard this was to hand over!
Its so bright and cheery...oh look I'm going to have to go make another.....


French Inspired

I have decided to expand the stock and will now carry French giftware etc. This is to cater for all ages and both boy and girl.
So many new items always being added.... fabric boxes, super large toy bags, storage suitcases, notebooks, jute bags, chalkboard decals.



I believe twine will be the new stationery accessory - watch out this Christmas everyone will want it!
I stock these in 11 different coloured spools and then approx. 13m in small jars. Always looking for novel ways to store it. There are lots of pics here to show you how you might use it, get ready to be wow-ed:


A tissue pom pom used to add finesse anywhere, anytime
These come in ten colours and can be used in so many ways - room decor, shop windows, party decorations. Pop over to pinterest where I've collected ideas for how to use a fleurpom:

{{New Stockist}}
I have adored the quality of goods Fiona Kate has for years.  Its a pleasure to be able to stock such gorgeous organisation/storage items.
Folder - great 4 art storage

Poster grids in white/red

the blackboard

The blackboard is an amazing organisation tool - I have mine in my office with orders that need completing, customers have stuck them on their fridge or children's doors.... I personally could cover the whole house in these!!

How could I go to Melbourne and not visit the queen of paper
I honestly thought I'd died and gone to heaven :) Such a wonderfully decorated and thought out shop. We did High Tea, shopped and star spotted (Natalie Bassingwaithe), I'm certain I gasped the entire time in complete awe.

even stylish chairs

One big catch up

wow 3 months has flown by... big things are happening at Ravissant!
Lots of new stock and major expansion has seen us become - "all things paper and French inspired"
I've scoured the internet to gather some gorgeous unique items and now its time to share.

I've done up a few framed message boards - just use a whiteboard marker and place your notes - on the desk, in the kitchen, child's room...wherever you feel you will need to write a reminder!

Happy to provide finished product or paper to make your own

Flutterbyes are now available in 10 designs for $1.10 each. Add them to your princesses wall, artwork - pin them to a canvas, on the bedroom door, dress up the party table, use as a gift topper.


April madness

Well Mummy Tree markets took on the Gold Coast. The atmosphere was devine, the stalls were amazing! I had the best time. Was one of my most successful markets. I took the new card range and they flew out the door....

And not far behind the gift wrap

I took the opportunity to have a girls weekend so shopping and champers were a must. Luckily mummy tree don't visit monthly :)
Creating is on a slight pause with the three kidlets at home but the old thinking tank is still ticking over. Been seeing loads of gorgeous posters on Facebook so last night I made my own....

Have a safe and wonderful Easter everyone. The kids and I are packing to head off with our extended family tomorrow, can't wait xx

So much happening it's exciting! March saw Mummy Tree markets again, very successful day. I got to experience the Georgie Girl phenomenon. People were everywhere and news reporters from 7 and 10 were there to capture it. Tina is amazing, managed to secure a dress for my youngest.
I'm working on an amazing French themed nursery for a client, can't wait to share. This baby is so lucky her nursery is to die for.
Only a week and a bit and we take the markets to the Gold Coast. Can't wait and after collating the best buys catalogue I know there will be amazing stalls ;)
My latest find at Coles- how cool is this, can't wait to let the kiddies loose.

Another find was this great score from a Highfields shop, something to feed my doily obsession. Thinking what I can create with them and wondering whether to share??

I've decided my little home business needs to diversify. I'm now selling gorgeous papers, frames, gift wrap and cards just like this one. Oh to have a paper store...... One day

Does anyone else struggle with filling a fussy eaters lunch box, this is how I sent my sons lunch this week:

Thank god for applications

For someone that ummed and arghed about an iPhone I now know I can't live without it. I'm outside with my little girls and catching up on the blog.
Feb saw me return to the Mummy Tree markets... Love love love
See the new tower pic bottom left... Finally made something for my bedroom. For those who were looking for larger size frames this could be the one.

I have also sourced higher quality frames, hardwood. Yes this has meant a price increase but I'm confident you will still find us affordable.

The new year has also seen the release of new papers and my order just arrived now.. Excited much

Here's a glimpse of a new frame in action

So where to from here.... I'm now looking at stocking in store. One I'm very excited about is the new and amazing Be prepared to be amazed!!

really...where does time go?
I'm so excited to start a new year... each day more and more ideas filling the head.
I'm so proud of where Ravissant got to in six short months and I ticked off alot more goals than I expected to.
I did a market - I was so scared, I loved it!! I've gained so much self confidence and achievement, it amazes me.
As I created my first piece for 2011 the other day I was reluctant fearing I wouldn't enjoy it as much - but I still had it, the tingle was there and I adore it!
You can't stop me now and there are loads of exciting things planned for this year.
I've just completed my first wholesale order and its about to be sent to Adelaide...what a buzz!!
So this year ...what will it bring, I can hardly wait to find out
Already the orders are rolling in...I think we are in for a busy year!!
