Collabrate for a Cause is about to take over facebook. So I can hear you aksing what is it all about???
CFAC 2012 is a auction that will begin on Friday 27th July at 8pm EST and finish on Sunday 29th July at 8pm.
Jen Kennedy from Ainslee Fox(Ainslee fox page) started the Cause with the aim to promote friendship, understanding & fun throughout the facebook handmade community, while raising money for causes we are passionate about.
To contribute a item you must have a facebook page and also work on the item with someone else who also has a handmade page. Then a charity is chosen and any money raised in the austion will be donated to your chosen charity.
All you need to do is pop on over to the Collabrate 2012 Auction folder and you will find a 'HUGE' collection from the best from the facebook handmade community.( 2012 Participating Businesses)
Vintagebubbles this year was lucky enough to work with Karynne from Chook Shed Designs who makes the most amazing handmade tea sets. Make sure you pop on over and check out her page!!.
We decided to go for a more of a photo prop idea of a tea set and one of my mini hats both items can be for the young at heart or the older ones among us.

Our chosen charity is the Leukaemia Foundation 'Vision to Cure', 'Mission to Care' and are dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. This is a charity close to my heart with my brother losing his battle with the disease and something I grew up with during teens. A lot has progressed since my brothers passing and hopefully one day a cure will be found.

I was asked to make a dress and cape fitting for a Little Red Ridinghood shoot......WOW I swear the photographer read my mind as I love a fairy tale and Little Red ridinghood has to be a favorite also hence my logo :D
So off I went and dived into my Annela Hoey's fabric stash 'A walk in the forest' and my Whimsy Wonderland Collection was born.

So it's really a whole lot of HANDMADE LOVE!!!!.
I found the lovely Jeni, last year she did a Sophie Moda Showcase and was overwhelmed by the coverage I recieved.
The Showcases are now bi annual and allows small businesses to wait for the fabric collection to be chosen. Its then on, to search the worldwide web for the fabric and maybe send international fabric companies into sending ALOT more parcels downunder. The showcase allows any businesses to participate as long as its handmade and showcases the fabric collection. The showcase has been divided up into girls, boys and womens albums to allow a bigger range of goodies.

I wanted to concentrate on the actual sewing so I kept the food simple with most things brought. I set up the kitchen bench with all the food so the girls could go from doing the craft to eating. I didn't want them to sit with needle and pins all afternoon...... I did make some button lollipops made out of white/chocolate melts. Raspberry lemonade was served in glass bottles with button detail and pink striped paper straws.

12 mths of Vintagebubbles
Once upon a time..................................
I had a dream, a dream to create!!!! One sunny day in Feb 2011, Vintagebubbles turned from a dream into something it was always meant to be. It stemmed from a love and passion for fabric.(this girl loves FABRIC).From my humble little studio my mission was to create handmade clothing with a classic but whimsical feel. I love the idea of a fairy tale. My logo 'Little Red' adds that touch of whimsy and woodland magic to my products, she is a big part of Vinatgebubbles becoming a boutique label. Every piece of clothing is made with attention to detail with what has now become my distintive signature button label.
All pieces are cut, created and hand finished by me to give a unique and individual item to be worn by every child near and far.
I am proud to call this little business mine and one that I hope my girls will be proud of when they are older and realise this was all for them. I am humbled to be able to do something I love from my own home.
Over the last 12 months I need to say a BIG thankyou to a special person who has been there to bounce ideas off and enjoy a coffee or two while searching the net for fabric. That is TP from http://www.facebook.com/cherryblossomkids?ref=ts without her help I wouldn't be where I am.
Also Kate from http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hart-Creative-Design/224408947607337?ref=ts as she was the talented freelance designer who brought little red to life. If you need a logo then she is the lady to go to.
To all my family and friends who believed in what I did/do.
To my husband who has allowed me to create while he ran crazy with the girls.
To David what can I say you rock!!!! and can't wait to see what the next 12 mths bring.
I am humbled by you all and thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
