Overdue update June 12, 2013

Sorry for the gap between posts! We were busy with the end of the school year and I fell behind on the blog. I’ll be back at it now though!

BlissfulSquish and Father’s Day Givewaway!

We had raffles of some wrap conversions by BlissfulSquish that ended today. I’m incredibly impressed with Ame’s sewing and attention to detail. I am looking forward to working with her more in the future to bring you more conversions!

Check out these conversions that are in stock and ready to ship!

DIDYMOS

In stock and ready to ship:

A large order of DIDYMOS India Holi arrived from Birdie’s Room. These are the 50% linen version and I took some geeky photos for you so you can see the difference between the 40% and 50% versions.

IMG_5076IMG_5075You can see the difference in the blue areas based on the linen content. We have just a couple of the version from DIDYMOS left and sizes 3-7 of the Birdie’s Room version. I am not usually a red person but I am loving these elephants!

Get yours here:

Lime Waves are here in all sizes just in time for the warm weather!

DIDYMOS Nautilus Emerald

I’m not sure what is going on with this shipment. These were ordered a week before INDIA Crimson but haven’t arrived yet. I think they must be stuck in customs. I will update the status on the product page as soon as they arrive. Tracking

Since I last updated, the Flamenco Hemp Indio from Didymos arrived and went directly back out to their owners. A partial order of FHI arrived from Birdie’s Room and the rest are supposed to be shipping early next week so hopefully they will be here soon! Everyone from the second shipment was e-mailed about the delay so please contact me if you didn’t see your e-mail.

LOTS of fun wraps on the way from KoKaDi! These were supposed to ship right at the beginning of June but KoKaDi has had some delays due to the flooding. I was just told that these should be shipping Monday or Tuesday so I will add tracking info when I have it.

Weekly Update April 29, 2013

I can’t believe it is almost May already! The school year is just flying by. I am really looking forward to having my daughter home for summer break! Do you have any vacations in the works for this summer? What is your idea of the perfect family vacation and what carrier would you take along with you? (Or should I say carrierS?)

Here’s the status update on new orders and arrivals:

DIDYMOS

In stock and ready to ship:

DIDYMOS Tendrils Sun with Hemp

These really are beautiful and vibrant in person. They are rough right out of the box like NHIndia but I think they will soften up and be nice and cushy rather quickly!

On the way:

I love cherry blossoms! I can’t wait to see this one in person: DIDYMOS Cherry Blossoms 2013

For those that have already ordered, they arrived in the U.S. on the 25th.

Weekly update April 22, 2013 and Earth Day Sale

EARTH DAY

Earth Day 2013 photo

At Heart-Hugs, we are passionate about natural living. Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions you have on babywearing, cloth diapering or eco-friendly living, in general!

Earth Day Sale

In honor of Earth Day, we are offering 15% off as well as DOUBLE rewards points! To learn more about our new rewards program or check your points balance, log in to your account and click on MyRewards. Offer ends today so hurry on over to Heart-Hugs and take advantage of the savings!

Make Every Day Earth Day

Going green doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Every little bit helps!

Here are some of the Heart-Hugs family’s favorite eco-friendly tips:

  • Use reuseable grocery bags, snack bags and water bottles.
  • Make your own natural cleaners for your home. Did you know that spraying surfaces with vinegar and then hydrogen peroxide kills as many germs as bleach? Baking soda also makes a great scouring agent. An added benefit is that homemade cleaners are extremely cost-effective!
  • Use cloth diapers or elimination communication. Not only does it cut down on landfill waste, it protects your baby from being exposed to harsh chemicals every day. We have tried a wide range of brands/types of cloth diapers and are happy to provide information and recommendations even though we don’t yet carry cloth diapers at Heart-Hugs.
  • Shop at your local farmer’s market or participate in a local coop.
  • Pay your bills online.
  • Wash clothing in cold water with an energy-efficient washing machine.
  • Recycle! Most cities have single-stream recycling now which makes it so easy!

Those are just a few of the multitude of ways to protect the Earth, as well as your loved ones! We would love to hear your favorite tips for going green! Please come and share them on our facebook page! If we each commit to making just one eco-friendly choice for the coming year, together we can have a huge impact on the environment and the Earth we are leaving behind for our children!

KoKaDi

We still have some KoKaDi Sterne Rosarot (Rosarot Stars) left. These limited edition stars are so striking. Don’t miss out!
