New pricing structure

I've been thinking about changing the way I price my creations for months and I've finally done it! Normally I add postage to the price but now there is going to be a flat rate postage cost of $6.50.  If you want registered post, you just tick Insurance at checkout. Easy peasy. 

My website will be back up and running Wednesday 22nd June at some stage. Once all the changes have been made I will post it on my facebook page and you can all see the new pricing. I want the Bee and Me shopping experience to be fun and simple. Of course if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via email. Thank you!  Dani :)

Photo shoot postponed.....

Well there's a lot happening here in the Bee and Me household! We've decided to put our house on the market in a few weeks time and anyone that has done this knows the stress and hard work that comes with it. My business has taken over the house so we need to find something a little bigger.  So I've postponed the photo shoot for a few more months. Sorry to keep doing this but I promise gorgeous photo's when we finally get around to doing it. 

New stock went in today and I'll be working on boys outfits around my customs (yes I'm taking customs again Woo Hoo!!!) and orders. Once my custom slots are full for February they will close again til next month. Thanks to all for your orders and enquiries today.

Better go and look at the packing boxes and try and figure out where to start.... god just thinking about it I need a wine! Have a great weekend.   Dani. xx

Bee and Me in 2011

Firstly I would love to thank each and every one of my customers and facebook 'likers' for your support and helping Bee and Me become a success in 2010 I truly appreciate each comment and sale I receive. Also to hear that you are getting lovely comments on the outfits when your beautiful kids wear them is pure bliss!! 

I love my job SO MUCH but I found this year I was working nearly every weekend which took me away from treasured moments with my family and I don't want this happening next year. They are my everything and kids grow so fast I don't want to miss out on all the weekend fun. :)

Normally I take each and every custom order that I receive but next year I will have to limit the custom orders each month.  I may have some help next year but I don't want to promise anything so for next year once I have my quota of custom orders for that month I will have to put them on hold until those are complete. Thank you all for understanding and we are all mums so I know you'll see where I'm coming from.  I'm fortunate to have the support from my husband to run my own business. It's not just creating the outfits there is so much more to it and there's only little old me doing the best I can.

I want to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a successful/happy NEW YEAR!! Be safe, have fun and I will see you all in 2011.  I'm unsure of my date that I will be back to work in January as I have to get outfits done for my photoshoot but I will keep you all up to date via facebook.

Custom orders

It's 11.30 on a Saturday night and I'm working away... I started at 5am this morning. I haven't been going all day but I will be tomorrow. Baylee has a fever which likely means no kindy next week and I'll get behind in my orders (again) eek!  I've been going through my orders and including layby's I have well over 60 outfits to get out before Christmas. How awesome is that???  BUT that also means I'm going to have to stop taking any custom orders.  I've cancelled my market date in October but with Bee getting sick it has made me realise that if it happens again or if I get sick (god forbid) then I'll be in trouble. I'm just a one woman show.

If I can get some help this may change and I really didn't want to do this but I must look after my current customers 100% and I wouldn't have it any other way.  You can still order through my website and if I can I will put up new stock as I go. Customer service is so important to me so in order to still receive awesome customer service from me this has got to be the way to go.

If there is any chance that I can squeeze in some customs I will definitely let you all know. Thanks so much for understanding. We are all mum's and every day is unpredictable where kids are concerned and Bee has to be my number 1 priority. :)

Do you want to win something? Well you can just with a few clicks of your mouse (or your phone). Suggest Bee and Me to your friends from my fan page by clicking on "Suggest to friends" then comment in the Discussion Tab under "I have suggested" so I know who to choose from. Easy peasy!!

Once my "likers" get to 1850 I'll choose 2 winners from the Discussion Tab comments. You can choose something from my website or I can custom make something for you to the value of $30. Please only comment if you actually have suggested, we are working on an honesty system here.

I love to do giveaways and thought this would be a great way to reward my loyal "fans". Good luck!!

May photo shoot of New Outfits

Well for a whole week I was all packed and ready for my photo shoot. The weather just wasn't my friend last week at all and we had to keep postponing the shoot and I was running out of time before I had to submit the photo's and an article about Bee and Me. I was stressing and EVERYTHING that could go wrong last week did.

Then my photographer Caroline's husband was admitted to hospital and our available time's clashed so I was forced to find another photographer.  Stef had never photographed kids before (hello more stress)  but I think he did an awesome job.  You just can't take your time with kids (as we all know very well) and I did make him rush but we were shooting in a park and it was like dangling lolly snakes in front of their eyes then not letting them have any!! Stef wanted to take pics of them playing on the park which would have looked awesome but the outfits just had to stay clean!  We had fun though.

Here's a little peak of the outfits that will be available on my return from a break around June 12th. I just had to share with you guys.

I'm going to enjoy the rest of my break now... just a few more outfits to finish then I get to relax!  Dani.xx
