The Learning Tower - Donation

November 24, 2008

This is an awesome opportunity to support local business, benefit a PPS K-8 school, and get your hands on a special order Learning Tower.

Here's the scoop: Ella at Queens Mab on Killingsworth (formerly Tickled Pink) donated a Learning Tower to the Astor School auction fundraiser. It didn't sell, so we decided to post on urbanMamas to a community more likely to use The Learning Tower. The proceeds will go to Astor School, the winning bidder will get a fabulous item in the color of choice, and Ella gets to show off a very cool item she carries at the store. 

What is a Learning Tower, you ask?  The website has great information as well as the 9 (!) colors you can choose from.  http://www.mylearningtower.com/

We've listed it on ebay, with local pick-up the only option.

Where to Donate?

November 22, 2008

I have a lot of brand new baby blankets (all kinds, but some crocheted), brand new board books, and more. My son just cannot use all of these things. Is there a place I can donate these things (I dont want to sell them at a shop, just give). We live in SE so if there are any places specifically around here, please let me know.

ONE MOM'S "HACK" LAUNCHES A BUSINESS

April 05, 2008

Hello Fellow Mamas-

Allow me to introduce myself as the Creator, Chief Schlepper and Head Mom of a new Portland based company started by… me. The short story is I am a mom, I created a product, and I found a way to “mass-produce” my product for sale in the market place.

I created Arm Bib sleeve protectors for my own daughter (Eleanor) when she was first learning to feed herself. I believe in a little independent exploration, at least enough to let Eleanor dive-in and dig around. But, for my own sanity, when she was first self-feeding I needed a way to cut down on the crates of laundry…her shirt sleeves were caked in food after every meal! So I created the Arm Bib - a soft, super stretchy little sleeve that easily slips on over your baby's shirt and sweater sleeves. They let you leave the mess behind at the table. It turns out they also happen to be very handy for the Three-Year-Old-Eleanor's messy art projects. We slip-on a pair of Arm Bibs with her art-smock and let her have at it. They help hold her sleeves out of the way so she can get to work without minding where her elbows go.

Thoughtfully Produced

Arm Bib sleeves are made in North Carolina in a knitting mill that has been family-owned and in business since 1932. They are American made, start to finish (even the cotton is American grown). We paid extra to source our product responsibly. Our packaging was printed right here in Portland by a locally owned business, and you’ll notice that it contains minimal plastic. 

Local Retailers

Arm Bib sleeves come in cute (if slightly irreverent) colors inspired by food stains (ex: “Smeared Avocado” = bright green). They sell for $7.99/pair and can be found at Generations, Milagros and Bella Lulu’s boutiques. They can also be purchased online and for a limited time if you buy 2 pairs they will be shipped right to your door for FREE -- consider it a special home-delivery! www.armbibs.com
