I’ve been in the studio lately and I’ve been busy.
Getting back to basics of what I do and assessing what I love about Alphabet Monkey.
We love little Felix and the so on trend colour palette of black, white , grey and a dash of texture in the form of wooden toys.
Felix is the first in a series intended to inspire you and share some of the clever images from our Birth Announcement Ideas board on Pinterest.
Check out the board HERE.
Are you hesitant to buy something online?
Not sure your purchase will be perfect once you get it home?
We understand what it’s like to be expecting and to be nesting. Sometimes its hard when we can’t touch and feel something in person before we buy. AND we totally understand the importance to you to create a special place to bond and spend time with your little one.
The last thing we want is for a customer to feel stuck with something they don’t love in their nursery. We want to to come in , sit down and look around and just LOVE all the special pieces you’ve curated for this special space.
SOO we want to offer you peace of mind with our DREAM NURSERY GUARANTEE.
If you don’t love it just send it back to us in original packaging within 7 days and get a full refund. We’ve actually always had this policy but never gave it a name till now. We realised that you aren’t mind readers :p so we wanted to make sure you know this.
And over all these years we’ve never had one returned..even from the nervous mums to be who we certainly told them they could return it…they NEVER did.
Thats why we are confident that you will never need to use our Dream Nursery Guarantee but its nice to know it’s there.
Just wanted to let you know that we have a tiny number of King single quilts available as a limited edition range.
The quilt is pictured on a single bed and is perfect for those moving onto a big bed. They are a very generous size so I could also see them looking great on a double bed too as a throw over.

We were very excited to share our story with Jen from Interiors Addict (one of Australia’s most popular design websites).
It’s interesting to look back over the last 6+ years and see how the handmade and craft industry has evolved. And as mentioned in the article I can see how the growth of Etsy has played a large part in all that.
We discuss how the business has been a bit of a family affair and our ideas for the future.
You can check out the full article here.
You may not know that before I had my son I couldn’t use a sewing machine at all, or that my amazing mum is an art quilter who has a distinctive decorative style and has won many prizes and been exhibited in countries all around the world.
You can check out her work here.

HOW TO ENTER TO WIN $100 ALPHABET MONKEY VOUCHER
- Photograph your little one in a Christmas theme flatlay or photo (age up to 2 but sibling pics are welcome too)
2. Upload it to Instagram or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Hashtag your snap #amonkeyxmas
4. Done!! Now you are in the running to win a $100 Alphabet Monkey voucher
5. We will announce a winner on December 29..that way you have a chance to create your photo over the holiday period too.
We have plenty of inspiration for you pinned on our Pinterest board Babys First Christmas.
There are a few themes happening including the use of the following..some are simple and some more elaborate but it doesn’t take much to give it a go.
- Christmas lights
- Candy canes
- Santa hats
- Under the tree
- In a stocking
- Cute little hats..see reindeer one above
- Christmas tree baubles
And don’t be put off by the fact that many of these are from professional photographers..here are a few tips to getting the perfect pic.
-try to find a nice well lit location preferably natural light
-try to just get a clear in focus shot
– why not lay out an unwrinkled blanket or some Xmas themed paper or table cloth for a back drop and lay the baby onto it.
– don’t forget you can edit in Instagram itself to lighten your picture and sharpen it or add any filters.
– just have some fun.
Love this idea for a sibling shot.
Good luck and have a lot of fun.. hopefully you will get some cute pics to keep of your little ones.
