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:

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.

KoKaDi

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.

The Hearts preorder has already been placed but we still have some openings left if anyone wants to be sure they get one. The hard part is deciding which one to order!

Weekly update March 30, 2013 and HAPPY EASTER!

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!

DIDYMOS Farfalla Basilico

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!

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
