The COOLwrap is back by popular demand and just in time for use this summer! The COOLwrap was designed last year when I needed a cool wrap alterantive for my little one on a very hot new years day! Hence the COOLwrap was born. It's made form very thin muslin fabric and is designed to allow for a snuggle wrap of bubba's arms while leaving legs free and open to move and breathe.

The research into the colour schemes used for the LianaSimpson range is unique and made to suit the needs of all parents. It will match just about any pram (red, blue, black, brown, green) and can be used for boys and girls using the same pram/buggy....
The aim of the game was to find bright colours that would match prams, accessories and outfits... (because lets face it- us mums like to have everything matching) Then you also have the option of two prints per liner, and the opportunity to finally put the boy and girl liners side by side in any doubles or twin prams... they look just great together! (See pic)
Hope you like what you see.... from October you will be able to purchase these liners online and in selected stores! Keep checking in for updates...

Just a quick note to keep you posted on the shipment of Spring liners that are on their way to Australia. This week the final products have been quality inspected and packaged, and loaded ready for shipping! Now we all need to keep our fingers crossed for calm seas and speedy shipping - as well as quick processing in customs! It's getting very exciting now and I am getting very eager to get the first of the liners out to our amazing stockists who have been superbly patient in getting their hands on the very first collection of liners!

It really worked well... My little girl loved it an kept pointing at the hearts, not to mention the looks it got from other mums at the park (and a few comments too). I love it and felt so happy to finally have one for myself!

I have sold to outlets in all states, and also to a New Zealand store. Its exciting to think that people all over Australia will be able to purchase their favourite liner, including ones who like buying online through the many online stores who have placed an order for some liners! I also had the opportunity today to speak with a few larger companies who have several stores (very exciting possibilities). Only 2 Days to go... hopefully a few great orders... but more than anything I can't wait to get back to Sydney and give my little gremlin the biggest smooch and cuddle! That's all for now from cold Melbourne...

I still can't believe I fitted a table, chair, pull up banner, pram and all my stock (plus clothes) in a suitcase! I did get a few funny looks as I unpacked my suitcase on the stand, moving tops and clothes out of the way and repacking it again... Very funny!
I took some pics of my stand all set-up... I think its not bad for a first time- but will see if I can attract some interest tomorrow when it all kicks off.
Thank you so much for the many phone calls and messages of support, it makes it somehow easier to do all this, knowing there are people back home who are encouraging and believing in what I am doing!
That's all for now- its time to go down and explore melbourne city in search of a coles or convenience store....

As suggested by a customer and facebook fan, I have decided to do Gift Cards! What a great idea for a new mum and their little one, to choose a pram liner to match their accessories and pram, or to browse through the other products available in the LianaSimpson range. Contact me directly to arrange a gift card purchase of your chosen amount! These will be available for purchase through the online shop at www.lianasimpson.com once we are ready to launch the Spring 2010 Collection.
Thanks- Hope you like!

I have butterflies in my tummy thinking about August.
I have spent the afternoon trying to prepare myself emotionally by searching through the lists of exhibitors that will be at the Reed Fair, and came accross some that are divine and inspirational... I am excited that I will be alongside such amazing brands and people and am looking forward to learning from them and meeting them (hopefully). Now I just cross my fingers and hope that my stand will look utterly amazing and off course that everything will fit in my suitcase... (Please be generous Jetstar!) A very xciting time ahead.....

They look stunning and I am especially pleased with the gorgeous fabrics, the first of my very own collection. The liners are looking vibrant and bright, and I am excited to receive them in preparation for the Trade Fair in Melbourne in August...

Having looked into the laws surrounding eco-marketing it is quite clear that you have to go through much explaining and be honest in your campaign. I have spoken to the ACCC today and they provided some better information on the 'resuable' aspect of a product, which my pram liners definately fall into. Since my liners are machine washable and can be restored and used time after time, it is in fact a 'reusable' product.... now to decide if this will be at all beneficial in marketing the product? Feedback would be much appreciated!

I think I will be looking into this further, thinking that my pram liners are possibly an eco-friendly product. It saves prams from distruction, it is made with some natural products and is re-usable? A long shot perhaps? I will keep you posted as I get more info on this.....
Order on its way!Over the past few days I have been sewing madly to fill orders for a few small online stores wishing to stock my products. I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and wholesale requests - and now can't wait for the manufactured liners in my own designer fabric prints, as it will make wholesale much much easier and less time consuming! For now you can check out my products that will be listing on the 'Owl Baby' website (or see facebook page)... I am aloso working with 'For Baby Naturally' about stocking of the EASYpouch on their website based around natural baby products!
Looking forward to more wholesale business partnerships in the future! :)
