Crazy Busy Days!
But it's all very exciting. Have you checked out the new Tiny & Little magazine? (www.tinyandlittle.com.au/magazine/) Myrtle & Grace were so very thrilled to be invited to share a couple of dress' with you in the autumn feature. And what a feature it turned out to be!!!! We ended up on eight, yes 8
 pages. Words cannot express how grateful Myrtle & Grace for this. Lots of happy dancing had- mostly on the Wiggles wiggly dance mat with the youngest two kiddies, what fun that was. This is how it all happened...
Sunday last at the Fairy Floss Market in the gorgeous St Kilda town hall Ms. Tiny & Little editor chats to Rachael and tells her all about the new magazine and the Autumn feature. "Absolutely, YES!" was my answer when asked if I'd like to send in a photo for the new mag. How exciting, what fun, yippee were all the things going through my mind for the rest of the market. 10 days to magazine launch.
On the way home I called my friend Celeste who is my photographer for times like these. (You can check out her lovely work on her blog at http://www.ourgirlyworld.blogspot.com/) A day is set the very next Tuesday evening in the low sunlight. What a sight it was my 6, Celeste's 5 all trailing in a big line across the road holding hands to the park. Me with the beautiful old Tapestry chair (on loan from Cindy) on my head all the way. It must have looked hilarious to any passers by. The little models were so well behaved except for this one time when miss Emily (mine) decided she had done enough.
Celeste works her magic and takes care of the editing of the photo's and by Thursday her work is done! I don't know how many times I oooohhhhed and aahhhed and sighed out loud while viewing the finished product. So many gorgeous photo's I don't know which ones to send so after chatting with Tiny & Little decided that she can decide and I send them all! 5 days to magazine launch.
I get an email the next day from Tiny & Little telling me that she LOVES them all and is going to do a special feature. 4 days to magazine launch. I spend the weekend bursting at the seams waiting and counting down the days waiting to see our photo's. At least I have the Geelong Fairy Floss market to distract me for at least one of those days. Tuesday day of the launch and I have to be in the car all day I sooo can't wait to see the magazine and get home to some beautiful comments on the Myrtle & Grace Face book page. I STILL haven't seen it and after a bit of fluffing around getting the Internet opened and running properly.....
*****Ohhhhh , Ahhhhhh********* I am blown away! The whole magazine looks just beautiful. and there we are Little ole Myrtle & Grace splashed over the pages. Someone pinch me please. It is amazing and I don not have the words right now to describe my gratitude and apprectation for the opportunity to appear in such a lovely online publication and for my photographer for making herself and her children available for a photo shoot with little notice. I'll finish off with a little sneek peek. xxRach
P.S just in case you hadn't heard Myrtle & Grace has been accepted into the April's  Magnolia Square Malvern town hall 28, 29 30th, so much excitement for one week. This is a massive coup for Myrtle & Grace, now the real hard work begins preparing for a 3 day long event.
