And the winner is.....

......Randi and her little boy, David! Randi asked "How big is David?" and David raised his little hands to show that he was "sooooooo big!" We received over 100 entries for our first photo contest. We were excited over all the entries we received and really enjoyed seeing each and every one of them. Randi will receive a $100 gift certicicate to use on the website. We have really had a great time doing this and will plan to do it again. Thank you to everyone that participated!

Fall Photo Contest!

Yep, Woollybottoms has fallen for doing a photo contest as well. The prize? A $100 gift certificate to Woollybottoms. We are going to open for submissions from today until November 15, 2009. No theme or any piece in particular.... just your baby in Woollybottoms. Have fun with grabbing some great photos. Please be sure to include with your photo your baby's first name and a few words or sentences. Submission of your photos gives Woollybottoms permission to use the photo on our website or in printed forms. Sound like fun? I think so and I look forward to seeing your photos. One winner will be chosen and will be posted here. Entries can be sent to woollybottoms @ (no spaces) and please put Fall Photo Contest in the subject line.

This picture is a little blast from the past of Caleb from about 3 years ago. My how he has grown! I found it buried in photobucket and had to share :)

More Soap On The Way

I manage to do this every single time. I wait until the last minute to re-order soap and sure enough, I did it again. That doesn't seem to matter though as I can email Katie and she ALWAYS responds within minutes and tells me it is no problem. Saying Katie is fast is an understatement. So we currently are having more Love Spell being made up and instead of the Butt Naked scent this time (which I really DO love), we are going with Yuzu which is in the same family of scents in my opinion, but something different to offer and another scent that I really love.

If you are not familiar with Katie at Ewe Need It,( ) check her out if you get a chance. Excellent products for wool and baby, and of course stellar customer service.

Already Preparing for Fall.....

Our busiest time of year is soon coming up. With all the sewing that goes on and wrangling of kids, sometimes the details get overlooked. I finally took a couple of hours to do a little bit of house cleaning on the website. I had a stack of 6 or 7 new footies prints that have been sitting here for weeks waiting on photos and to be listed. I think yesterday I must have listed 20 new recycled pieces and today cleaned up the footies listings and divided them neatly into "boys" and "girls" catagories. After customer requests a few months ago, we now have an option to customize footies with the addition of an interlock waistband rather than a traditional waist band. I want to further the idea of customization and will be working on adding a slot to "build your own footies" or something to that effect. We should have that activated by tomorrow if all goes as planned.

New Footies Print, Inspired by Mom & Baby

We recently ran a large group order for our customers signed up on our yahoo news group. It was a lot of fun to put together custom footies for our customers where they were able to pick out the footie fabric and wool colors. This was a particularly fun print. I had this fabric sitting in my stash for quite some time and had never used it. I pulled it out for this custom order and put it with the blue wool and the result was one of my favorite combos. It is such a fun print and the name Solana (named for Solana Beach, California and the little girl who inspired these footies) fits it perfectly.

Lots of Changes in Store for 2009!

Our new footie fabrics are finally in and are being sewed up as quickly as possible. The fabric is incredibly soft and fluffy. We are also moving to a new location in beautiful Heber Springs and closing on the property today. To start with, it will be a workspace/shipping area only with the potential to grow into retail space in the future as we continue to grow. We are very excited about these changes and thank our customers for helping to making this possible. New patterns are being stocked daily and we have also added an "outlet" section on the website.
