I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter weekend! What are your favorite Easter traditions? Mine are dyeing eggs with the kids, going to church, having Easter egg hunts and having dinner with family. One of my favorite things about Easter is seeing all the little ones dressed up for church in their best clothing with colored little fingers because all the Easter egg dye didn’t wash off. So precious!

We have had a wonderfully busy week of fluffy mail! I love seeing all the carriers in person. They always surprise me that they are even prettier than the swatches!

DIDYMOS

The Butterflies have arrived and they are perfect for Spring! DIDYMOS Farfalla Primavera and DIDYMOS Farfalla Basilico are in stock and ready to ship!

Here are some comparison shots in natural light:

Basilico

Which do you like better? Primavera is a little brighter for spring but I kind of like the more muted colors in Basilico. It’s a hard choice but I don’t think you can go wrong with either!

Also in stock and ready to ship are DIDYMOS Houndstooth Anthracite, DIDYMOS Tobi, and DIDYMOS Indio Mermaid with Linen.

DIDYMOS Kolibri Petrol– As of March 28, the hummingbirds are in the U.S. If all goes well through customs, I would expect them to arrive at Heart-Hugs sometime this week. I am excited to see them in person!

Tula

Our first shipment from Tula arrived and they are wonderful! I am very impressed with the craftsmanship as well as the fun prints that they choose. Heart-Hugs will be offering matching/coordinating drool pads in the near future! In addition, Tula will be coming out with some new prints in a month or so and we are excited to add those to our inventory!

Coming soon:

kokadikokadi baby wraps

Heart-Hugs is now a kokadi retailer! I have had many requests asking when their wraps will be available to order at Heart-Hugs. As soon as kokadi puts out the next limited edition that is available to retailers, we will be ordering that as well as some of their standard collection of wraps. If there is a particular print or size you would like us to order for you, please let us know! We will keep you updated as we learn more.

lilaboba

We have heard such positive feedback regarding boba. We also like supporting local businesses so we will be placing a boba order very soon. As with kokadi, if there are any prints you would like to see, let us know!

 

 

 

 

 

My daughter was on spring break this week and I have loved having her home! Once she heads back to school I’m hoping to start doing some blogs in addition to the weekly updates. Which topics would you like to see covered? I am passionate about babywearing, attachment parenting, breastfeeding, and natural living so there are many options! I’m always open to suggestions!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and Happy Babywearing!

Heart-Hugs,

Jenni

Weekly updates

I am new to doing a blog so please bear with me as I get the hang of it! I always appreciate feedback! 🙂 There is an e-mail button in the upper right corner of the blog as well as our links to facebook and Twitter. Contact us in whatever way is most convenient for you!

My goal is to post updates at least once a week on what has been ordered, what is on the way, when items arrive, fun babywearing and attachment parenting news, and anything else you would like to see!

It’s been a busy week catching up from our sale and getting new orders placed!

Here’s what’s happening at Heart-Hugs:

Tula

As of March 16, our order of Tula Ergonomic Baby Carriers is in New York. Since this is our first order with them, I’m not certain how long it will take to get to us or whether the tracking will be updated before they arrive. I will post when they get here so that you can place your order! We are really excited to offer a buckle option for those that aren’t interested in wrapping but still want to hold their babies close. Or even for those that use other carriers already but want a quick in-and-out option for when they are out and about!

Doesn’t Tula pick such great fabrics?

Don’t see a pattern you like? E-mail me and let me know which one you would like to see in our store. I will do my best to add it to our next order!

DIDYMOS

We have four current orders with DIDYMOS. Two are in the United States, one is in the air between Germany and the U.S. and one is in processing. Here’s a bit of what you can expect from those orders:

DIDYMOS Farfalla Primavera

Looking for the perfect wrap for spring? These beautiful butterflies arrived in the U.S. on March 19! We are waiting for them to clear customs and continue to Colorado. Since our quantities have been verified, these are available for purchase now so don’t miss out! They will ship to you as soon as we get them!

In that order, we also have some Tobi, Iris and Houndstooth Anthracite! We plan to carry most of the new limited editions that DIDYMOS puts out. At the same time, we would like to continue to offer you their standard line because there are so many great options! As we get limited edition orders placed, we will continue to add to our DIDYMOS standard line as well!

I am quite excited about this next one: DIDYMOS Farfalla Basilico

When DIDYMOS Farfalla Primavera was being woven, a few turned out to be a darker shade of green. The result was beautiful! The quantities for these are very limited (as it was an “oops” color) and only available in Size 6.

This order left Germany on March 21st so I would expect it to arrive in the U.S. today. They are available to order at Heart-Hugs so grab these very limited butterflies while they last!

DIDYMOS Farfalla Basilico

In that order, we also have DIDYMOS Indio Mermaid with Linen

DIDYMOS Indio Mermaid with Linen

These are very supportive for older babies and toddlers and ready to order!

I will continue to update as these packages arrive. We offer free priority shipping so once they get to us, you can enjoy your fluffy mail within a few days!

Sale Items

We are making room for new merchandise so there are still some great sales going on throughout the site. I will be adding a clearance section soon to make it easier to find the sale items. For now, have fun browsing at Heart-Hugs!

HAPPY BABYWEARING!

Heart-Hugs,

Jenni
