Mini Mass Pad Stocking

Posted in 'Cloth Pads' on July 2, 2009, 10:49 am
I finally have what I think is a decent enough amount of pads to re-stock.

Stocking will be held at 9pm tonight (2/7/09)

There are limited prints, only because I have this obsession that when I need to produce in bulk, I have to finish the one print that I've got before starting another LOL.

Cloth Menstrual Pads
This is one of my favourites!

Importing the easy way

Posted in 'General' on July 4, 2009, 11:08 am
Well you've probably read some of my ventures with importing, and yes I've been burnt. 
Thankfully it was only at sample stage, and although my experience was not an unpleasant one, I just felt as if I was wasting my precious time and money on something that wasn't going very far with my nappy manufacturing.

So here I am wanting to start over with my nappy manufacture. 

This time I have decided to outsource the project to the lovely Jackie from http://www.joltconsulting.com.au/

The team at Jolt have over 20 years combined experience and make sure you achieve your fullest potential.  I have had nothing but pleasant dealings with Jackie and feel I am in the most capable of hands and am very keen on working with her and the Jolt team.

When it comes to business, the one thing that stuck in my head was to outsource.  By giving Jolt this project, I feel a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders, and I can now concentrate on other things that needs doing.

Organic is no longer seen as boring!

Posted in 'General' on July 13, 2009, 10:14 am

Organic is fast becoming the new trend.


We are so much more environmentally aware these days than previous generations were.  Not only can we buy organic fruit and vegetables or organic meat and dairy products but we can buy organic clothes and nappies.    We all know that we should be buying organic because it is kinder to the environment and far better for our long term health.

 

The wonderful thing about the discovery of an ‘organic world’ is that it has set free a new generation of creative minds.   Look around and see what they are creating.  Farmers are learning new techniques to grow crops without pesticides and their products are better for it. 

 

Sckoon and Frugi are just some of the certified organic stock being carried in-store. Sckoon has beautifully soft 100% Egyptian Cotton clothing which stays so soft wash after wash.

Frugi has some of the most stylish designed clothing that has also been designed with added "bum" room specifically designed for the cloth bum.

To start browsing please visit;

Organic Clothing


The clothing is made from certified organic cotton that has been grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides.  The are also ethically produced which is extremely important to Twinkle Lily.

 

Organic isn’t boring, it is clever and beautiful.

Get in touch with your body

Posted in 'Cloth Pads' on July 22, 2009, 9:59 am
I don't know about you, but I get extremely offended now when I hear someone cringe and carry on when I speak about reusable cloth menstrual pads.
My answer now is simple - Don't knock it til you try it!!!

I am no hippy, tree hugger or even a green bush loving person. 
I just love the fact that I nurture my body, I know how it works and I know that what I am placing on my skin is far more natural than the ingredients of a disposable menstrual pad.
I also love that I can save myself a whole heap of money simply by using cloth menstrual pads.

Do we really know what goes in them? 
Why is it I bled so much more when I used disposable pads?
And why did I always leak off the sides in my first 2 days of bleeding?

I am a member of many parenting forums and have heard so many girls actually state they bleed less with cloth menstrual pads.  I have many friends and family who have converted and no longer suffer from rashes in between their thighs.
I no longer feel constantly wet down there and fear leaking.

And best of all I can change my prints to suit my moods, or to even lift my moods.  I have not come across one girl yet who has converted to cloth menstrual pads that doesn't look forward to wearing them.

Don't sit here and tell me about the washing being such an issue.  Have we really become so lazy we can't sit some cloth pads in a container of cold water and then throw into washing machine with everything else?  Yeah sure there's that extra step in soaking, but is it really going to take up hours and hours of your valuable career focussed life?

And next I can hear "that's a waste of water".  I am sure it doesn't waste as much water as what is involved in the manufacture of the disposable pads.  I use a small old peters icecream container and half fill it.  My cloth pads soak for 24 hrs max, they then get thrown into my washing machine along with my dirty clothes.

Come on girls give cloth a go!
