Handmade Mumpreneur of the Year Finalist & Mag Feature

I am so excited to be 1 of 5 finalists that has made it through to the final round for the 'Handmade Mumpreneur of the Year' in the upcoming Ausmumpreneur Awards.  Many other extremely worthy Mumpreneur designers and business women have also made the final, so its certainly going to be a very exciting night come the Awards ceremony.  You can see all the awards and finalists at Connect 2 Mums.

Your Cheeky Monkey has also been included in a "MWWAH" (Mums who work at home) Feature in the July Issue of Soap World Magazine, which I am very chuffed about!  Check out the image of the feature below to see all the other fabulous businesses included.  A big thanks to Jess of MWWAH for extending this opportunity to all of us.

This week also brings one of our Bunny Rugs being featured in the Handmade Kids Cooperative Blog, the theme being "Warm and Fuzzy" - too cute!

I am also very busy with end of financial year stuff - its time to get the bookwork in order not only for the last quarters BAS, but to finalise everything for the 09/10 Financial Year.  School holidays are also in full swing, although with my oldest only stating Prep next year they don't really affect us.  I love this idea which I saw at the Business Mums Blog as a kids activity - Decorating Envelopes - sounds like heaps of fun for both Mums and Kids (bring out your inner child!  Send those business letters with some fun stickers if you dare!).  And over at the Under the Loupe Blog, Annette suggests reading books in front of the fire in this wintery weather - now that's my idea of heaven!

Don't forget too my GIVEAWAY ends tomorrow evening - click {HERE} to enter.

And the last bit of exciting news is that Sophie the Giraffe has a whole new organic range called 'So Pure' which has just been released, and Your Cheeky Monkey is one of the very first stockists in Australia.  There are 4 beautiful new packs to choose from in the So Pure Organic Sophie Range.
