The Pixie Collective

I am very Proud to have my first Post back at Kookie Kids being the 'Magical Shop' Called

The Pixie Collective is a New Concept Created by two Beautiful Fairies with a Magical idea, an idea I must admit I am very excited to be involved in.  The Pixie Collective is a shop ran by designers who hand make and sell their own creations, as well as selling other artist work!!

From the moment you see this 'awesome' Mystical Tree' Painted on the Front of the Shop, just know "your in for a treat'.  A word of warning, "head down after payday, you simply can't walk out of this place without the urge to purchase your own handmade one of a kind piece" - yes, I'm not just saying that, I mean it, this shop has it all, from clothing, hats, wings, paintings, bags, men's, women and kids clothing, candles & soaps, Jewelry, belts, skirts, workshops, exhibition's ...huff, need I say more!

So, my fellow Kookies! if your located in Melbourne head over to:
374 Hight Street.   Northcote.   Victoria.

For Interstate and International kookies 'The Pixie Collective' will be 'ONLINE' soon! Yay!

Sending you many hoots! 

WOW! I'm Back here Again!

Welcome Back to Kookie Kids!
It's been awhile since I have felt my 'passion' for this blog, after all the troubles we've been through...(sign) since then this little spot in cyber spot has been 'shelved', but, not to worry, with my New and improved look, I am inspired and excited to be back aboard and will be bouncing back into The Kookie Kids blog with a new found PASSION!.

                              Hope you will join me again, have a hooty weekend.

Shop - Pretty things distract me!
I researched for months before I finally decided to take the plunge and have a go at making some 'hair clips' - within weeks I had orders coming in from friends and family and decided to give it a go - I met a friend who buys from me wholesale and it boosted my confidence levels so I decided to start a website:
(to visit store, please cut and past the above link - for some reason I was unable to link up)

All of my jewellery pieces are one off designs, although I can create similar pieces by using the same colours. I endeavour to constantly create new and exciting work and seem to be forever buying buttons. I feel that there is something really special about a handmade item, in the world of the consumer a unique and one off piece is treasured and valued, as it is something rare and often hard to come by.
