Help Save Handmade Products!

For those who are not aware, in August of this year, Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in an effort to ensure improved safety standards for children's products in the US. This legislation was brought about by numerous incidences in 2007 involving the presence of lead and phalates in products outsourced by large manufacturers to China for production.

I've spent a great deal of time over the past week reviewing the legislation and discussing it with my fellow mom-preneurs, and I must say that I am very discouraged by this law in its current form. The Act is, in theory, a good idea and I am all for increasing the safety of products that we allow into this country and into the hands of our children. However, the CPSIA definitely has it's shortcomings and seems to have been a knee-jerk reaction to a complex and multi-faceted issue. As it currently stands, the Act is incredibly global in nature with regulations that will result in incredibly high expenses for manufacturers, particularly small, mom-and-pop companies specializing in beautifully handcrafted items for children.

With the Act set to take effect in Feb. 2009, manufacturers will be forced to pay safety certification fees that range from the hundreds to thousands of dollars PER ITEM in order to continue selling their items. Not such a big concern for the large manufacturers specializing in mass production...potentially crippling for the smaller US businesses who have a history of providing quality childrens products with no history of safety issues. Items effected are toys (wooden, felt, name it!), clothing, blankets, hair accessories, tutus, and much, much more!

It appears as though the CPSIA simply forgot to exclude the class of products made in the US, Canada, and Europe that have already earned the public's trust and adoration. The end result is, that unless the law is amended, HANDMADE CHILDREN'S PRODUCTS WILL NO LONGER BE LEGAL IN THE US.

How Can You Help?

Please write to your United States Congress Person and Senator to request changes in the CPSIA to save handmade products. Use this sample letter from the Handmade Toy Alliance or write your own. You can find your Congress Person here and Senator here.

I sent my email letter off earlier this's easy as pie and takes only minutes. If you love buying handmade products for family and friends like I do, please take a minute of your time to try to preserve the privilege that we are soon to lose in this country.

Feisty, Frugal, and Fabulous Giveaway!

Stop by and visit our friend, Tenille, over at Feisty, Frugal, and Fabulous for her Kick Off to Christmas Event! She's hosting daily contests for fabulous prizes to countdown the days until Christmas.
Up for grabs for the next week is a pair of Bullfrogs & Butterflies own Baby Berries (TM)!
Thanks to Tenille for a yummy review!

Ho, Ho, Ho...I Did It!

My adorable 18 month old niece is a consummate tomboy who just so happens to LOVE to feel like a princess! She loves to twirl and dance, all the while carrying her big brother's football in her little pink purse :-) So this Christmas, I decided to try my hand at making her a fabulously poofy tutu...I used a whisper pink top layer and a super sparkly lavender for the bottom just to give it a bit of bling...TU-TU Cute (if I do say so myself)! I'm so pleased with how it turned out that I've decided to try my hand a crafting a sweet little crochet-flower headband to match.

It's so wonderful when a vision and final product match up!!

Where Did the Week Go?

Boy, how time flies! Here it is, another Monday, and I just realized that I haven't written a thing since last Monday. I promise to be better...I swear these pregnancy hormones have me more absent minded than ever!!

Needless to say, I've managed to stay very busy this past week filling orders and sending out some surprise holiday goodies to a few lucky ladies (whoo hoo!).

I've also posted a couple of new goodies at Bullfrogs & Butterflies...feel free to stop by
and take a peek at our new Hair Treats & Accessory Holders!

I have to credit the former to a number of customers who have requested that I make our cupcake clippy toppers available "a la carte" and the latter to a need for a stylish place to store all of those fabulous clippies! Thanks to our wonderful clients for the inspiration!!

Keep checking back for some more great additions later this week!

Black Friday

For or those who enjoy the hustle and bustle of getting a great deal the morning after Thanksgiving, and don't mind fighting the crowds to do so, I found a great site that lists all of the advertised sales by store (so you can pick and choose which portions of the list you want to download vs. taking 5 hours to download one large list that includes many stores you would never visit!). Even if you've taken the Handmade Pledge (to buy as many of your gifts as possible from other fabulous mom-owned businesses), there may be a couple of items that you can't find in that venue.

Click HERE for the link. And best of luck if you dare to fight the crowds!!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Today was a fabulously fun and productive day...First, I played chef to my 3 munchkins with a breakfast fit for kings (or in this case, princes!). Then, it was off to fight a few fires with my fellow in the playroom, one in the fish tank, and one on the back patio :-) That lead to a fierce snowball fight and fort building extravaganza! Next, it was back to the art "studio" to create some wonderfully creative masterpieces with crayons, markers, stickers, and stamps!
When the older boys finally crashed from exhaustion, I had a chance to play story-teller to my 14 month old and engage in a game of chase filled with giggles and tickles! Whew...I am truly exhausted and fabulously energized at the same time.
Today was a GREAT day!

Here We Go Again...

Just when I'm feeling wonderfully creative and primed to launch a couple of new products that are as unique as they are yummy, I find the wind taken out of my sales a bit by yet another Intellectual Property thief. If "imitation is the biggest form of flattery", it's certainly also the most frustrating!
Two of my unique designs popped up in an Etsy shop over the past 4 days and based on 4 new subheadings that are now listed on the site (with no products as of yet), it seems as though the owner is priming herself to strike again! Why not just design your own unique treats? Why copy a design from another hardworking mompreneur? I just don't understand...creativity is a wonderful thing that, when let loose, can produce remarkable results. Why not explore your own artistic side versus stealing from someone else? There's plenty of room in the world of online baby boutiques and plenty of products to be sold...come on, stretch yourself a little. Find your own spin! Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I'll check back once my new items are posted and BAM!, there they'll be...AAAGGGHHH!

Win a Boca Beth Grande Bag!

Stop by and visit our friends at Mommy's Idea to see a fabulous giveaway for the kiddos! Boca Beth is offering one lucky winner their wonderful Grande Bag filled with educational activites for your little munchkins. Good luck!

After much deliberation, 20 storefronts and 5 online-only boutiques were selected as finalists. Although we were not one of the 5 online-only finalists selected, we were 1 of only 7 online-only honorably mentioned boutiques!

What a day! Yesterday was the big 3 Year Old Birthday Extravaganza and it was fabulous! Caleb and the kids had a blast playing, dancing, name it, they did it! The adults had a wonderful opportunity to sit and catch up and we were treated to some surprise family guests from out of town. By the end of it, the entire household was wiped out and went straight to bed after a little clean up and wind down time. All in all, it was a spectacular day!

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...

...there are more productive things to do with your time and more positive ways to spend your energy! Besides, karma comes full circle and we will all reap what we why not sew into our talents (hint, goodies are on their way at Bullfrogs & Butterflies!)?


I debated long and hard about this post prior to writing it, but I hope you will indulge me briefly. I prefer to keep my blog upbeat and informative, as it's the best reflection of my own personality...but tonight I am extremely frustrated. There are MANY online baby boutiques out there that deal in similar, whimsical products to my own. The thing that makes the best of us stand out is our ability to put our own spin on the designs. There's bound to be some overlap and similarities, but the truly creative typically stand out with a superior product. It's this drive to create that I find most enjoyable about what I do.
The thing that I find most frustrating, however, is when some, in their piety, accuse others (whether directly or by inference) of copying ideas only to turn around and do the very thing they claim to detest. I have always been taught not to "cast stones" unless I myself am blameless. Perhaps others would do well to learn this same lesson.

Happy Birthday "Sweet Face"!

I can't believe that my little Caleb is turning 3 today! It seems like just yesterday that my hubby was assisting with the delivery...boy, how time flies!! Although the big party isn't until Saturday, we had a small family celebration today...balloons, special "mommy time", backwards dinner (per request), special "daddy time" at Coldstone Creamery (yummmm), and a football-shaped birthday cake (bake by moi) complete with our slightly out of tune rendition of "Happy Birthday" (wink). The favorite gift of the evening was a Dallas Cowboys football uniform, complete with shoulder pads and helmet, from my parents...too cute!
Happy Birthday to Mommy's "Sweet Face"!

Happy Belated Sweetest Day!

Happy Belated Sweetest Day to All! I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. I was blessed to have a very full Sweetest Day. It went something like this...

First, the we celebrated by having a Breakfast of Favorites...each family member helped make a favorite breakfast food for someone else. My 4 year old had pancakes and eggs with cheese, my soon-to-be 3 year old had strawberry streudel, the baby had blueberry waffles (no syrup) and pears, hubby had an egg and bacon sandwich, and mommy was treated to yummy cinnamon rolls! Delicious!!

Then, it was time to clean up and head out for an outdoor family outing...always a big hit! After a bite of lunch, it was time to shut the house down for a much needed rest. Mommy and Daddy even got to take a nap together (a much coveted treat in our house!).

After naptime, I had a chance to visit my new friend Tammy at the grand opening of her product launch in a local retail store. Tammy is the very talented artisan behind the new goodies featured in the Bullfrogs & Butterflies Spa Sweet Shoppe. And let me tell you, she is as sweet in person as her yummy little bath treats! Once back at home I found a warm bath waiting for me (compliments of my dear hubby!)...the perfect opportunity to try out one of Tammy's delicious tub taffies in a festive fall scent.

It was a YUMMY ending to a perfect Sweetest Day!

Babysparewear Giveaway

What's the number one thing every well-prepared mommy keeps in her diaper bag? Diapers and wipes, of course! What's the one thing that is most often needed but most often forgotten? A spare change of clothes! Often in my haste to make sure I have the necessities plus a few distractions to help in a pinch (toys, treats, a book...), I've found myself leaving out this crucial element...and wouldn't you know it, those are the times I find myself at the other end of a particularly runny mess that found its way right into my muchkin's freshly cleaned outfit!

That's where babysparewear comes in...their "emergency" travel kits are fabulous! Packaged in their own waterproof pouch, these kits some with a pair of pants and your choice of 2 infant coordinating onsies or a coordinating toddler shirt.

A Moment to Relax...

For the first time in a long time I had the opportunity to enjoy a luxurious bath without any interruptions from my 3 adorable was delightful! It's easy to get caught up in the many tasks of each day and forget to take time to breathe. It was wonderful to steal away for a few minutes of "me time" and treat my senses to an aromatic soak!!

How Time Flies

It's so hard to believe that my 3rd little munchkin is going to turn 1 year old tomorrow!! It seems like just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital to a world of chaos...
My husband had been transferred during the pregnancy, but we decided that my 2 older children and I would stay behind until our precious Micah was born. It was important to both of us that I continue with my OB through the pregnancy, rather than scurrying to find a new one mid term. So my husband made the grouling 2 1/2 hour commute each Monday and Friday, so that he could see us each weekend.
Unfortunately, timing was not in our favor when it came time for the birth. Little Micah was born September 25, 2007 and our movers arrived on September 27th...just 2 days later! We made the drive to Ohio and bunked down with my grandparents for 3 days until our new house was ready. In his 1st short week of life, Micah slept in 4 different locations (hospital, old house, grandparents house, new house) and essentially moved 3 times! Ironically enough, at this phase of his little life, he is the most laid back, go-with-the-flow, happy baby in the world!!

Are Your Child Safety Measures Up to Par?

No one likes to think of the unthinkable happening to their little prince or princess...but in the case of an emergency, do you have your child's pertinent information in a readily accessible place? When was the last time you updated your child's safety information?

Why is child ID and child safety so important? The FBI receives over 2000 missing children reports every day. A child in the United States becomes missing every 40 seconds. Statistics from the US justice department and the world Almanac puts the chance of any child becoming missing at 1 in 42.

According to law enforcement throughout the United States, a parent’s best assurance for the quick and safe recovery of a missing child is to have a complete profile of the child on hand. The first hours after a child becomes missing is the most critical time for recovery. However it is also the time when the parents are in a panic mode and can not remember a detailed description of their child.
This is where Guard-A-KidTM comes into play. By providing a total and complete child ID and child safety package, Guard-A-KidTM is able to provide you with the peace of mind to focus your energy on other things. I personally love the Smart ID sticks! This high capacity USB flash memory stick can store all of your family's safety information in one convenient location and you can update your information as frequently as you desire without having to re-purchase!

Stop by and visit Michelle Johnson and Sheila Mortensen today. They are untraditional moms with traditional values and a genuine desire to provide you with top of the line safety products for your precious loved ones!
