Off to vacation (and some work)

Tomorrow, we leave for vacation. After a lot of frantic running around to drop off final stock to stores and return e-mails, getting the house sitter(s) all lined up, my orders cleared, and packing, I am finally ready for a little relaxation. I plan on hitting the beach, buying some fabric while I am in Los Angeles, and meeting some of the people I deal with every day here at MiniMe BabyGear- InStyle Moms, Crafty Babies, Kissui to name a few.

Before I forget---You might have noticed a change at MiniMe BabyGear. A new website design by Kayzoe. I have been thinking about what I wanted for a long time, and Cher truly made my vision come to life and I cannot imagine a more perfect site!! Along with the change, there is bound to be a few kinks, so I apologize in advance for any trouble there might be due to the newness of this new program/shopping cart.

Also, just because I am closed, does not mean you cannot shop! I will be taking care of orders immediately once I return, and all orders placed while I am away will go out around August 13.

I am off! Wish me luck on the plane with my almost three year old:-)

Just a reminder:

MiniMe BabyGear will be closed July 25 though August 7 for a much needed vacation. Any order placed after July 23rd will be processed when I return, and I will try to work through orders as quickly as possible. Thanks for your understanding!

On Newstands Now...

If you happen to be strolling through a Barnes and Noble, pick up a copy of Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine. The Wet Happened? wet bag is featured on page 108, it is the hot pink version inside the green diaper bag. Thanks to Lacey Major, the senior editor, for her awesome review both on the blog and also in the magazine. This magazine is a must for new or expecting moms-it is full of great ideas, products, and tips for the new baby. Comfy Crawlers and MadebyAngie wipes cases, two fabulous brands carried at MiniMe BabyGear, were also in the same issue!
Just a FYI--the Breastfeeding Buddy is also slated to be in the October issue, so keep your eyes peeled for that as well.

Baby Emi Jewelry!

I have been drooling over these bracelets for months. Made with .925 sterling silver and Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls, semi-precious stones and glass beads, these bracelets are prefect for any gifting occasion! Equisite yet wearable...they even come wrapped!

How great is this? So many companies leave out the boys when it comes time for the great items- not Baby Emi! Boys Bracelets are also available. My favorite- the Pirate Booty Bracelet.

What I love: the Mommy and Me set. This set is the perfect gift for celebrating mom.

Buy Now at MiniMe BabyGear, $40-$95.

Employee of the Month

I often say that one of the biggest challenges of running a business is the various hats that have to be worn. For example: sewing, manufacturing, cutting, packaging, shipping, adding new products, order processing, invoicing, website maintanance and troubleshooting, newsletter. blogging, marketing, PR, buyer...the list goes on and on.

Lately, I have needed help-- big time. Thankfully, my husband is a teacher and thus has the summer off. He has helped me tremendously lately-- cutting all of my fabric, my invoicing, daily trips to the post office, and store hopping for things I have run out of.

Someday, I will return the favor. For now, thanks... I owe you one.
