Ageing Up With My Market

Don’t worry, I’m still primarily all about the babies and little kids. I will always make onesies with cute animals, and t-shirts to hug your tots’ potbellies.

Growing a business without business skills. Apparently it can be done.

Wowza, has it been a busy month… and it is just going to get busier and busier up until Christmas. This year is looking to be a landmark year for Noctiluna kidswear. We are doing more and bigger shows, and I have been printing non-stop, so that we will (hopefully) have enough inventory for them. …

Spring/Summer T-shirt Musings

  I write this just as we are all hunkering down for a big storm. I’m surrounded by legos, unfinished puzzles and socks (exactly how many pairs a day do my kids wear, and why do they keep taking them off??). Normally I’d be scared of the impending cabin fever, normally I’d be drinking tea …
