Tips to make Christmas shopping easy

It’s really easy to become overwhelmed at this time of year. Christmas parties, presents for teachers, cards, planning for feasts and shopping for presents...it’s almost enough to sap every last ounce of Christmas spirit out of you! Luckily, small things serve to remind you of the joy of this time of year and how something that seems so complicated is really very simple. For me, it was the excitement and pleasure that my daughter displayed as she spotted the decorations in shop windows a trip to the local shops. Christmas really IS an exciting time of year, especially when seen through the eyes of a child, so it’s time to tap into that excitement and approach the festivities with enthusiasm.

In order to do this, you need to have a plan, especially when it comes to shopping. The key is to be prepared. To assist you (and ourselves!), we’ve put together a few helpful suggestions to make this potentially overwhelming task simpler:

1. Get in early, beat the crowds - as the day progresses, the crowds swell...and so do your feet!

2. Set a budget and stick to it.

3. Write a list - write down what you think they would like, know what it is you are shopping for.

4. If all else fails, turn to the power of the internet. After all, on-line shopping is easy, fun and crowd-free!

D.I.Y Christmas Owl decorations

In our family, the first of December signals the time for the decorating of the tree. This is cause for much excitement as we delve into our boxes of decorations, lovingly collected over many years, each with its own special significance. Some of our most special decorations are the ones made by the kids – the endearingly lopsided paper angel, the painted pinecones, the...well, you get the picture! While beautifully coordinated designer trees look fabulous, the kids get so much more enjoyment and pride out of displaying their treasured decorations on the tree. So get creative this Christmas with our gorgeous IdTee owl decoration for you and your little ones to cut-out, colour and hang on your tree.

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas, full of all the joy and excitement that the festive season brings.

Spring has sprung, and cooking we is!

The Spring has sprung, the grass is rizz. I wonder where them birdies is?
Winnie the Pooh

Spring is here...finally!
After weeks and weeks of dreary weather, the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming.
In celebration of Spring, we decided to bake some biscuits for an afternoon tea picnic in the garden. Having taken possession of a fabulous cupcake-shaped cookie cutter from Bisk-Art, which just happens to match our fantastic IdTee cupcake apron, the opportunity seemed too good to miss!

Vanilla sugar biscuits

200g unsalted butter at room temperature
200g sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
450g plain flour

Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Add the vanilla and the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Add the flour and beat until the mixture forms a dough (it may look a little crumbly at this point, but you can use your hands to bring it together).
Knead the dough lightly into a ball. Divide the ball into four portions, wrap each in cling film and refrigerate for an hour.
Bring out a portion of dough at a time and roll out on a lightly floured board to the desired thickness*.
Cut out your shapes and bake in a preheated 170°C oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool before decorating.
Decorate to your heart’s content.

For these little cupcakes I used Pettinice fondant icing which I coloured before rolling out.
Brush each biscuit with a little light corn syrup before applying the icing.*A neat trick to get a uniform thickness is to use a sort of frame on either side of your dough.
Your rolling pin will roll the dough out until it rests on top of your guides and voila!
You have a perfect thickness each time.
In this case I used wooden chopsticks (Although I’m sure the professionals have a more custom-made solution!)

Your assistants will have a lovely time cutting out and decorating these gorgeous biscuits...and an even better time eating them!
Just in time for Christmas,
IdTee will be offering a personalised apron and cupcake cookie cutter as a gift pack for $29.50

Nothing like a pet.....Maxie

Introducing our newest team member or should I say family member Maximus aka Maxie.

Here is Maxie our 8 week old spoodle who Sienna my eldest now 5 1/2 absolutly adores. Now If only I could get her to pick up her toys as much as she picks him up my house would be spotless!
I could not help myself I had to make Max his very own doggy IdTee.
I would like to make this blog a showcase to the many facets that is IdTee. I see this as a great opportunity to communicate with you and share aspects of my life. One week it could be Idtee news, the next something that inspires, and or news about other designers and special offers only availble through this blog. I hope you will enjoy!




We recently travelled to Fiji with family and friends and I made these singlets up for my girls and their two friends. This is four year old Sophia looking as cute as ever! We had such a great time the weather was definatly much better than Melbourne in August...its freezing here right now!
For the record...If you are looking for something that you can't see on our IdTee website, do not hesitate to contact and we will do our best to custom make that perfect design just for you. Whether it be for a holiday, birthday or any special occasion.
