Chatterbox: Blog Central

My business is pretty “young”. We were born about a year and a half ago. I participated in local craft shows but felt like I needed to get out there more. A year after my first market I am so proud to work with the customers I have. I used to make everything myself and now I have very talented seamstresses on my team. Everyday I feel blessed to be doing what I enjoy and growing as I do it. I still do customers orders and welcome requests for unique items in unique stores.

In this month’s issue of Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine, No Slippy’s Leah Frayed Flower Clip is featured. It is a wonderfully sunny clip that is perfect for spring and summer and easily warms up any babies outfit.

Before I start this blog, I want to note that I will be moving my weekly blog to this location on the Giggle Guide. Being involved with social media since 2003, I can honestly say that it is about time that a platform like The Giggle Guide has finally come to be. I urge everyone involved in the various related trades and industries to jump in with both feet and get involved!

We send special baskets full of new product to the media every spring, and we’re already seeing spectacular results! Baby Couture’s new issue is featuring no less than four of our items – one pair of eco-friendly leather sandals from Pedoodles®, one bath toy from Elegant Baby®, and one headband and one hairclip from No Slippy Hair Clippy®. Check it out – Tori Spelling is on the cover.

I have mentioned a friend of mine before, the artist Kathleen Coy. She is an amazing and talented artist. She is so good at animals and from what I’ve seen…she can paint anything. I already had her paint Hawk and for Father’s Day she painted my other little dog Cali. She is my husband’s baby girl…literally. And he was so happy, surprised, and over joyed when he opened to find this piece that Kathleen had created. Great job Kathleen..I’m already thinking of what I’ll have you create for me next.

No Slippy Hair Clippy is excited to invite our readers to be a part of a very special event! A Virtual Baby Shower for Shari Murphy of Baby Banz, Inc. thrown by The Baby Planner. It will be a gift giveaway bonanza and will benefit some awesome charities like the Ronald McDonald House and the March of Dimes.

Lately I get calls almost daily asking me to rep a line. Most often, my answer is “No Thanks,” followed by a genuine “Good Luck!” This response leaves a lot of frustrated designer/manufacturers out there who often hang up the phone maybe feeling a little bitter at yet another refusal.

I thought I would do something a little different for today’s post. I came across an article that may be of interest to my readers, so I figured I would share it and open up a possible forum for discussion. You may or may not have heard of a compound called, BPA. (I know I hadn’t until today) It is a chemical used to harden plastics, and is found in many baby bottles.
