My Week: Tax Returns, Cuddles and Birthday Preparation


This week I have mainly been doing my tax return, so unfortunately I have not had much time for crafting. The girls were at their dad’s house last weekend so it would’ve been the ideal time for me to get on with some new designs but it obviously wasn’t meant to be. Me and Kieron had a lovely weekend to ourselves though, having lots of cuddles while he was awake and me working away, crunching my numbers, while he napped. He is 3 months now, so officially not a newborn anymore. He is so active and alert now, it’s lovely to see. He has started smiling lots and babbling to anybody who will listen. He is so friendly, he charms everybody he meets. He has just started noticing his toys too and will sit and chat away to them.


It is Leyla’s birthday this Saturday so I need to make her a dress to wear for her party. She has asked for a dress made with some pretty purple fabric in my stash so I need to get on it as soon as possible. I have a few orders to get out first though. I always end up leaving birthday dresses to the last minute then stressing through them. I seem to do it every year! Luckily the type of dress she would like is one that I have made many times before so it shouldn’t take me too long to make. Fingers crossed.

Wish me luck!

Welcome to my new blog!


Welcome to Kizim Kouture!

For those that don’t know, I thought I would do an about me so you know who you are reading about. My name is Adele and this is my little corner of the internet.

I have two little girls, Leyla who is 7 and Naomie who is 6 and a baby boy called Kieron. I have my own business selling excellent quality, handmade children’s clothes and accessories, which I run from my home in Shropshire.


I first started crafting when I was pregnant with Leyla. I taught myself to sew and crochet and have never looked back really. I love seeing my children in clothes I have made and they have many things made by me in their wardrobes.

I opened Kizim Kouture at the beginning of 2015 and I am absolutely thrilled with how far my business has come in such a short time. I love being able to create beautiful items for people and seeing how happy they are with my clothes, it really makes all the hard work worth it.

On this blog, I hope to share child-friendly recipes, craft tutorials, family adventures and parenting articles, along with updates and product showcases from my shop.


If you would like to see more, you can find me on my website, Kizim Kouture or my Facebook group. I am also on EtsyFacebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Come and say hi!

Love adele
