Once I summoned the courage to open it, it turns out it was an official notice from the United States Patent and Trademark Office that our trademark application HAS BEEN APPROVED!!!
How's that for a surprise?!? Happy New Year to me!

The Christmas was so much fun for the kids. They, of course, are too young to know what happened, except that they could eat all the cookies that they could stomach and they got so many new toys, they are not sure what to do with them.
Nothing new on the Woolly Boo front, though. Very happy even our customers took a little break from shopping. But, don't stay away for too long - the really cold days are coming.
Also, stand by for a special announcement - we are taking part in a very cool charitable event in NYC, courtesy of Martha Stewart. And, yes, I will keep you guessing until the New Year!
Have a happy one!

In the mean time, I spent the day downloading, uploading, and backing up thousands of photos. That's how I noticed the glitch in Flickr app for Blogger, in the first place. In the mean time, here is the direct link for the photos from the Handmade in New York craft fair we took part in last Saturday. Enjoy!

Wish me luck!
P.S. I have actually remembered to pack batteries this time, so you might actually see some images from this show. If I remember to take them.

It has to be said, the venue was beautiful. The church was old, and Nordic-inspired. The space, and my booth in particular, were in the great spot. Organizers decorated the room nicely, other vendors were so talented, friendly and inspiring... All in all, very happy. And the Woolly Boo logo caused so much stir, that one of the teenage bands that performed wanted to buy my banner. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Well, not that long. Maybe a week.
Thanks for everyone who stopped by. It was great seeing you.
And, yeah, happy first snow of the season.

With the new office/showroom finished (finally), I have a place to host all those that maybe feel uncomfortable inviting a stranger to their home. Photos will come shortly. I just need to assemble all the IKEA furniture :) I know, we're talking January now, right?
In any event, the Shop-at-Home service will give you an opportunity to see the Woolly Boo products without leaving the comfort of your home. If the kids are napping, I will be extra quiet - I understand. I will come to your house with all the samples and all the fabric swatches, so you get to touch and feel everything before you commit to purchasing.
No purchase necessary.

IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY WOOL?
•Temperature regulating and insulating (the continual circulation of air keeps child’s temperature appropriate for the environment)
•Wicks away moisture from the skin (the wool fibers absorb up to 40% of their dry weight in moisture, resulting in reduction of dampness, pressure and friction against your child’s skin)
•Naturally fire-retardant (wool that hasn’t been chemically processed does not burn)
•Naturally dust mite repellent, so it reduces allergies
•Does not give off an electrical charge unlike synthetic fibers
•CPSIA compliant (wool that hasn't been chemically processed is always lead-free and phthalate-free)
Still not sure? Make use of our FREE Shop-at-Home Service. We come to you with all the samples and fabric choices. Very convenient for busy moms and dads.
