Busy as a Queen Bee

I haven't been around much these last few weeks... I have been busy, getting organised for a few new things, settling into the school routine, crafting it all leads to a very busy schedule and not much time for electronics.

So here, in a few snippets is what we have been up to. The Princess is now eating with gusto, her favourite snacks being watermelon and sweet potato. I have been sewing up a storm of toys for an up coming market, designing my own doll patterns, making clothes for the princess (that jacket is reversible, and made from scratch from my own pattern YAY!) I have been really getting into the swing of making Waldorf Dolls, the Prince got his very first school sticker on his second day of school for his behavior (beaming mumma here!!) and also again on his third and fourth. He was born ready for school this one, and comes home each day full of excitment, yet when asked what he has been up to says with disappointment... 'they still haven't taught me to read yet!'. Last of all, I have been working on my very first Waldorf doll for sale... the pink hair beauty. She still has some work to go, but is coming along nicely... this one is for a friends little girl!

So, hopefully now I am back in the swing of things... I hope you all had a fab weekend!

One World, One Heart

Hi there, and welcome to 'The Wiggins Tribe', I'm so glad that you have stopped by. As I've mentioned before, I am participating in the final 'One World, One heart' this year (click on image for further information)

I'm Keshia, the Queen of our tribe. Me and my two little ones live in our Castle by the sea in the beautiful Tasmania (Australia). I'm a arty-crafty type, whether it be painting with my children or sewing up a new creation.... I LOVE it all. I also class myself as a musician in the closet... I haven't dedicated much time to my music over the past few years, it has all been about nursery rhymes and children's songs. My prince has inherited both of these traits which makes my heart melt.

A new found creative love of mine, just happens to be my door prize, so with out further adieu, I would like to introduce all you lovely newbies to Annabella...


She is a precious little thing, who can often be found with her nose stuck in a book. She is a quiet little soul but does an awful lot of thinking. Annabella is looking for a new home, not that she doesn't like it here, but I think my two little ones are just that little bit to loud for her.

She is a 13" Waldorf doll, made from all natural materials.

For stopping by my blog today, you can leave a comment to be in the draw to give Annabella a new home.

This competition is opened to all people, world wide who have an active blog. All you need to do, is to leave a comment and it would be helpful if you could leave your email address and blog address, so I have an easy way of contacting you shall you win.

The winner will be drawn on the 17th of February, (Pacific Eastern Standard Time). I will draw the winner via and will contact you via email, and will dedicate a blog post to the win.

Happy 'One World, One Heart'

New Beginnings

My beautiful little Prince started school today for the very first time. Can you believe it? I certainly can't.

He was so excited and was ready to leave as soon as he was dressed at 7.30. 

7.30am : "Can we go now, can we go now, can we go now can we go now?"

7.45am : "what about now, what about now, what about now?"

8.00am "ugh, its taking so long can we go NOW??"

8.20am: ""Can we go now, can we go now, can we go now can we go now?"

We can?? YES!!!

Off to school we went. I stayed in his class for around half an hour and then had a coffee in the staff room with some other parents and staff. He has such a great little school who are very welcoming. I can't wait to pick him up and hear about all his new adventures as a school kid.

I can't believe I now have a child that goes to school!!

Technology Problems

So I have been having a few problems lately with my email address charlie.ava (at) gmail (dot) com. Thought I was going mad, wondering why I couldn't access emails! Turns out my account had been hacked with out me realising. So, if you have been emailing me, and waiting for a reply I can't answer  because I can't get emails. I have received an email from Google to say that they are working on it but because of privacy laws and the such it will take a while. Luckily I had two accounts linked to my blog - so I have deleted the above mentioned email - so it may look like I am not following you any more - but most of you still show up in my google reader.

If you need to email me, use thewigginstribe (at) gmail (dot) com, it is such a pain, I have been waiting on some important emails - but turns out that my initial emails may not have been sent!

Op Shop Finds

Op Shop Wonders

After feeling a little house bound today, the kids and I headed down the street for a bit of Op shopping. We only went to one of the biggest ones (which, really isn't that big). We weren't disapointed though, we scored all the above for $7.50! The Prince was very excited with his find, a castle that opens up and has four rooms, a set of wooden trees and people, a construction man and an alien that lights up. He has called it 'The Castle of Dooooooom!'.

I was happy with my finds as well, a heap of great books, can't wait to get into the Making Paper Air Planes with the Prince, he is going to flip when I can actually work out how to make a plane that flies instead of going backwards. I also managed to find about a metre and a 1/2 of uncut vintage fabric... it is gorgeous. I found a cute old sheet that I am going to use at my market stall and a pretty pillow case that is begging to be turned into a few dolls clothes. Then there is the two balls of bamboo/cotton wool (that much, whoohoo!), a bag of buttons and an old pattern.

I think the Prince is becoming quite the little op-shopper!

Meet Annabelle


Annabelle loves reading and spending time at the library. She is a dear little soul who is as quiet as a mouse but does an awful lot of thinking. She is just about finished... but I just couldn't wait to share her with you all!
I am thinking that I might sell her once she is complete...
