With only a month or so until Mother’s Day I thought I should tell you a little more about my latest design, the UBERheart.
I’ve always loved the symbolism that a heart represents but I wanted to create a Heart that was not your typical heart jewellery… for two years this design has been bubbling away in my brain.. and for the past three months I have been working on it. I feel like the UBERheart has that beautiful heart symmetry yet it’s distinctly Uberkate in its look.
The piece comprises of three pieces that rest together to form a heart. They can be worn separately or together to create different looks.
I’m so excited by this design, it is truly beautiful, yet versatile. And I really feel any mum would be thrilled to wear this piece especially if it has been embossed with her families’ names… I know what my mum is getting for mothers day this year (and so does she, she’s already placed her “hint” order with me!)
I’ve designed the piece so it will appeal to those who like wearing gold, silver or even both.
If you think you or your mum would love an UBERheart then you’ll need to place your order by May 1st if you want to receive your necklace in time for Mother’s Day.

Sometimes in life you have a friend who you have known for more years than you have not… these friends are special nuggets of gold as they know the good/ the bad and the ugly about you and they love you anyway..

Mrs Woog has just launched her first E-book on parenting.. titled “Mrs Woog Tales from the Front Line” Pop across to her blog and have a read.. be prepared for tears (funny ones) KX

Has anyone else caught the renovating bug? After my obsession with The BLOCK series this year I have been inspired to go out and do my white card and my home owner/ builder certificate… I love chicks that can renovate and plan on being one!
Shelly Craft is someone who I admire for her work/ life balance and the fact that she will get in there and give anything a go.. I also admire entrepreneurs who create tools to help us amateurs out.. and Shelley Craft and her hubby have just designed The Builder APP to take the leg work out of finding a tradie or supplier for any job – ie changing light globes, to picking a site manager to take charge of your whole renovation. We all know how frustrating it can be to source tradespeople! If you need helping finding someone for a job in your home it might just be worth having a look…

Being a former TV producer it’s not very often that a TV show completely obsesses me…but I have officially this year become a “blockaholic”.
This series has captivated me because of the four couples, each diverse as the next, that have made TV gold.
I have loved watching the frank barnies between Josh and Jenna.. they behave towards each other the way we all do sometimes behind closed doors.. lucky for us we got to see it all and they gave us everything.
Oh (sigh) “The Girls” or “The Mums” they have been like watching my sister and I navigating a reno together while being away from our partners and kids.. they have melted down, cried a lot, danced a lot and been completely “real”.
Rod and Tania- what a gorgeous, loving couple.. they inspired me to be kinder towards my own hubby and Tania reminded me that you can get your own way with your hubby if you “kill him with kindness” and constantly refer to him as “honey” even when you really want to stab him in the eye with a wooden stake.
The cutest couple award has to go to Polly and Waz- they remind me of the early days in my own relationship with my hubby, all the cute names, and all the optimism of youth, and their infectious excitement at every turn the show took. Can you two invite me to your wedding? I will make you an amazing piece of jewellery as a wedding present..!
I don’t actually care who wins the show on tonight but I will have my arse glued to the couch because I can’t wait to see all their faces during the auction.
I handmade and sent each of the women on the show a bangle as a lifelong reminder of all they achieved in eight weeks. I hope they each wear their bangles in the nursing home when they are old and grey and recount the amazing things they did in their lives.
To all of the contestants on “The Block 2011” good luck tonight… I have loved watching you all,

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I thought I should fill you in on what little goodies I have designed for our Uberdads.
This year I have designed a Money Clip which is the perfect gift for the executive Dad as it’s something he can use everyday.
The Money Clip design features soft lines and personalised embossing of the father’s loved ones.
My inspiration for this piece is my Dad. He is always fumbling for money or trying to stuff his wallet into tight pant pockets. The Uberkate Money Clip will solve both these problems and give him a stylish accessory.”
The front of the Money Clip can be embossed with up to 15 letters or dates and the back has room for a small message of up to 10 characters.
The Uberkate Money Clip is available for the special price of $285 and if the order is placed before the 1st of September 2011, customers will also receive an exclusive Uberkate leather key holder valued at $45.
However if the Money Clip is not for you I also have designed a range of cufflinks, necklaces and key rings, all of which can be personalised for your family. For further details, visit our website www.uberkate.com.au
