Obama Change Socks?

November 03, 2008

My husband and I were walking our 2-year old twins in downtown Portland a week ago and we came up with this funny idea -- make Obama socks!  We just happen to have a good friend who makes world-class socks for Tour de France teams and the like and they can weave virtually anything into socks!!!  So the socks have CHANGE written in white on a blue band on the cuff, with a blue heal and toe, black socks with the face of Obama woven into them. 

If you are ready for a change, vote with your feet and quit running around the bush, and buy a pair at www.obamachangesocks.com  They made them Wednesday in Tennessee and we got a shipment Friday and they are so cool!

Do you have children's clothing stacking up in your house?  Do you need some more clothing for your children?  Why not bring them to a clothing swap!

La Lu Baby Etsy Store is OPEN!

June 17, 2008

I am very happy to announce that my little clothing line La Lu Baby is open for business!  Like most mamapreneurs, I caught the creative bug after the birth of my daughter three years ago.  Once I started sewing, slowly La Lu Baby was born.  Your local support and kind words made me decided to open a cute little Etsy store to sell my duds.  If you are not familiar with Etsy already, please check it out; there are some truly amazing artists out there to support.  Features like "Shop Local" make etsy a great tool to find locally crafted items.

Thanks for reading...

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
