Off to market we go...

We are busy, busy here at Sophie&Jack headquarters as we are preparing to head off to poppyseed markets again at Warners Bay this Sunday.

We are looking forward to meeting more of our customers, both new and old and also discovering some new handmade talent from the local area. The awesome thing is, poppyseed markets are a 100% inside market... perfect for these cold, wet and dreary winter days.

We would love to see you if you are a Hunter Valley local!

We have a new look...

That's right - all brand spanking new and shiny! Sophie & Jack has had a makeover and we are in love.

The ever-lovely and amazingly talented Tamara of Tamara Sirl Designs has outdone herself once again in designing our beautiful logo, header banner, clip cards and animated banner (over there on the right ---->). If you are not a fan, then seriously, do yourself a favour and become a 'liker' of her facebook page. She is currently fully booked out, but it is a joy just to sit back and watch her work her magic for all these lucky small businesses like us.
As if working with Tamara wasn't fabulous enough, we were then honoured to have our new business cards designed by the wonderful Maddie of Design By Me. Maddie worked with our logo and created the most beautiful business cards I have ever seen. I honestly can't believe they are for my little humble business as I hand them out to my poor, but always willing, friends and family.
So there you go.... I am extremely excited and proud to present my little show and tell to you all. I am also incredibly grateful to these wonderful two women for sharing their incredible talents with me - thank you!

Let me introduce the original Sophie & Jack...

Yes, "Sophie & Jack Designs" is named after our two beautiful children.

This is our gorgeous girl - Sophie...

She is sensitive and sweet - a real thinker. Very bright and intelligent, she can be quite an introvert outside of the house. However, get her in the comfort of her own home and most people wouldn't recognise her! She is outgoing, loud and a little crazy!

She is also a very compliant child (most of the time!), always willing to please and gain our approval. Though, she is a real worrier and keeps things inside - just like her father!

And here is our handsome little man - Jack...

This little one is a real character - he loves being the centre of attention when he is around people he knows. I just have to catch his eye and he laughs hysterically at me. Who knew I could be so funny?

But then he is incredibly shy when around people he doesn't know. He will cry at the drop of a hat and buries his face in my lap, trying to scale his way up into my arms. He also has an extreme stubborn streak in him. If things are not going his way there can be screaming, throwing himself on the floor and tears - lots of them. Hmm, I can't possible think where the stubborn trait came from?!

So there you have it... these two are my inspiration behind creating Sophie & Jack Designs.

Welcome to the new blog of Sophie & Jack Designs!

Hi and welcome! I'm guessing most of you are venturing over from our facebook fanpage after their crackdown on our fun competitions and giveaways. Well, we don't want them to stop us sharing our gorgeous hair accessories with our fans, so we've decided to run all future competitions and giveaways right here!

This blog is obviously still very much a work in progress and we are on a steep learning curve never having had a blog before but we know it will be all worth it in the end.

So thanks for visiting, be sure to follow our feed and we will have some exciting competitions coming up for you all to be involved in.
