Great things ahead for 2010!!!

With the holidays fast approaching.....I have never been so busy in my entire life. Zeebabee has boomed and I think there is no going back. :) I am hoping the momentum continues in 2010. My goal is to get into as many boutiques as I can. I just have to find a way to do it....because I can't do it all right now. I would love to go the route of sales reps...but I am having a little trouble finding some. I contacted a few but haven't heard back as of yet. If any of my readers no of any sales reps please let me know....it would be very much appreciated.

And maybe this year we will see some new products from Zeebabee.....who knows??!!!???

Happy Holidays!! Stay safe and healthy!! :)

I need a personal assistant!

Okay I know, I know....I am not very good at this blogging thing. I try....but I run out of time in the day. I need a few more hours everyday...as I am sure most of us do. I decided that I need a personal assistant and a nanny. I know that won't be happening anytime soon....so I will have to learn how to organize my time a bit better.

I really want to keep you all informed on my journey....so I will start my New Year's resolution early and Blog more..... Wish me luck!!

Okay now on to some news----- Found out that the Burp Sees are selling like hotcakes in boutiques!! This is very exciting for me. So I am moving full force ahead and working on getting some sales reps to get Zeebabee in boutiques nationwide. I am going to pitch to a few today and hope that they would like to take me on as their client.
And here are some great pics of some baby gift baskets using the Burp Sees in them. A boutique that sells Burp Sees makes gift baskets, too. And the owner just loves using my products in them. She's one of my biggest fans!! Thanks, Melissa!! Here's a shout out to her boutique---- http://www.candidgifts.com/

....it's going to happen

Whenever I talk to my sister T, about Zeebabee and where things are at. She is always so quick to say....I know you are going to make it big. And it's not just that she says these positive words....but it is the way she says them....with such conviction, like she already knows it will happen!! And that means so much to me. The reason I bring this up is because I have been thinking a great deal lately of what I need to do to get Zeebabee out there.....to really make it a household name. And positive thinking is the key. God has a plan....and I do believe I am following His plan. Sometimes I wish He would just help me out a bit and give me a quick look at His plan....lol. But I trust that it is what it is :)

Okay on with what I need from you!!! I humbly ask that each of you pass on Zeebabee to your friends. Whether it be in an email or by word of mouth.... tell them about a great product!!! I am going to send out an email to all my friends, family and customers that I will ask them to pass on to EVERYONE they know. In these tight times, I am choosing to not get a PR company, but to do the work myself. And this will help out a great deal....and it's free. And you'd be helping out a friend :) Remember the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon....just think how many people I could get the word out to.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

The Queen of Multitasking

Is it Multitasking or is it ADD?? LOL....I seem to thrive on doing a thousand things at a time!! But these days...I have to. I have so much on my plate with Zeebabee right now. And I need to get it done. My goal between now and the end of the year is to get into many retail locations as possible. The bigger the better...so I am starting big and then working on the boutiques. One of my entrepreneur mom friends is doing my media kit for me for a small nominal fee....once that gets completed....I will be ready to rock and roll.

I kind of took the summer off. I worked Zeebabee....but not as hard as I need to. It was just so nice enjoying the kids in our new home this summer. But now my oldest is in kindergarten and it's time to get this party started. Right? So hopefully in the months ahead I will be able to report to you some great happenings with Zeebabee. :)

Okay....back to the grinding board!!! :)

Dreams....dreams....and more dreams....

Good afternoon....as most of you already know. Getting Zeebabee products into Nordstrom's would be my absolute dream come true. So I bit the bullet and sent them my product info along with 2 samples. (Do you realize I had been sitting on that contact info for many many many months....just too scared to do anything) After conferring with a few people....I do believe I had the correct contact information to the national infant buyer for Nordstrom's. This is huge, people!!! I really hope they receive it....and love what they see. I truly believe that the Zeebabee burp sees would be a fantastic addition to the baby department at Nordstrom's. Others have told me the same....I do like those people :)

So I ask and pray that my loyal readers....send a few good vibes my way....and that I receive "the call".......

PS. I'll keep you all informed......

Our Newest Fan

Meet Baby Max!! He's our newest fan of Zeebabee....him and his mom that is!!! Max's mommy said that he loves his new Burp See and that she catches him cooing at it.... As a mom you have to feel good about your little one having something so visually stimulating to help with their cognitive development. Thanks Max for being a fan!!
PS. He's pretty darn cute, isn't he??

Okay honestly....WHAT is my problem???? I am really trying to figure out why I am such a bad blogger. We all know I have alot to say....lol....but for some reason I can't keep up with my Zeebabee blog. Maybe it's because I think no one is reading it...like I am just talking to the wind or something. So if you are reading this right now....make a quick comment in the comment section.....and maybe if I feel there are interested readers out there I will write more often than once a month....lol. It only takes a second. And if you feel like typing MORE...how about you give me a little blogging advice. :)

Yes....yes....yes....I know I have been Missing In Action!!
So much has been going on a few weeks back we had a major malfunction with the shopping pages of the Zeebabee Website but now things are operable again....so that's good. I am really looking into changing my website....make it more user friendly....not very happy with it right now. So I will let everyone know once the "facelift" has been completed :)

So I am back to committing myself to a few posts a week....so stay tuned :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to me...and all the wonderful mommies out there...old and new....LOL! This morning I got the most beautiful cards from my sons and my husband...and we are off this afternoon to afternoon to get my mother's day gift. They are getting me the Troll Bead bracelet and picking out my very first charm beads for it. So excited!!

I am so very very blessed to have such a wonderful family. Although my kids can drive me absolutely nutso sometimes...I wouldn't have it any other way. I love them dearly. And I don't think I would have such a wonderful life if it wasn't for my amazing mother...she did such a great job raising us. and her job was a bit tougher....she had 5 of us to raise. Go her!!! I always ask her...how did you do it?? Five....that's alot....I only have 2 and it's a challenge sometimes. She has a lot of patience...and I admire that in her. I am learning my patience... I love you, MOM!

Can I do it all?

So that is the question for the day? Can I do it all? I can try....but I can not beat myself up if I don't get it all done. Most people try to live up to other people's expectations....I try to live up to my own. LOL Almost 100% recovered from the little bug I got....and now I am staring down the barrell of a long long long to do list. But trying to stay positive today....I can only accomplish one thing at a time...oh well....you know me...2 or 3 things at a time. :)

One good thing is Mother's Day is Sunday....they should be nice and relaxing...if I let it. :)

Till tomorrow!!

Got back from Florida on Sunday and was just getting back into the swing of things....and was hit by the stomach flu. Yuck yuck...no fun! I got it from my 4 yo who had it the second day of our vacation. Well, I am recovering and looking to get some work done one of these days. And lots of work I have to do!! Now that I have my brochures in hand...it's all about marketing Zeebabee. I want to order a car magnet as well. Fun stuff! So I guess instead of me talking about I must get off the computer and start doing....LOL! I am making a pledge to myself to blog everyday. So for all the readers I have lost for not being a good blogger.....I hope I get you back!! :)

Busy as a beaver!

So it's usually safe to say that if I am not posting then I am either really busy or nothing exciting is happening!! :) But I do have to say that this time it's because I have been super busy. I have lots of work been going on with Zeebabee. Getting lots of sales, working on adding new styles of Burp Sees to the website, trying to find sales reps, and the list goes on and on and on. I do find it hard at times....especially with out a babysitter. But I just keep truckin' on!! Hopefully I will have some very exciting news soon.

TA TA for now!!

Still here!!

Okay so I haven't blogged in awhile....I have just been super busy and sick all at the same time...HA! So now I am back! I really don't think I have anything unusually great to post about. I have been just plugging away and networking my little (ha ha) hiney off!! It's a full time job just networking and promoting Zeebabee. I really need to find a babysitter soon. I am not getting much done in a day...either that or start staying up late again. That's no fun!! I like to relax when the kids go to bed.

Well, sorry for the boring post....I'll have some more exciting posts tomorrow or the next day ;) Oh...how do you like the picture! This is my youngest laughing hysterically!!

Here's a little question for you all...when you get a 15 minute or so break from your kids....what do you usually spend the time doing??

Valentine's Gift Guide

I woke up to a pleasant surprise today. The Baby See T-shirt was listed in the Mom In The City's Valentine's Gift Guide. It's in the Baby Section if you would like to check it out. Free publicity...you know I am all about that.
That was my happy news!! Not so good news was that Oakwood Hospital Gift Shop just decided to cut back due to the economy, still interested in my products but can't add on a new line. I was told to check back in the Fall. Oh well, so much for sure things....LOL.
But there are still lots in the works...and I need to find the time to get it all done. I wish there were more hours in the day...or less meals to make for the kids ....just joking!! I just always feel like I am cooking or cleaning or wiping some one's behind sometimes. But I guess these were the troubles I knew I was going to encounter as a Mompreneur.
Later.... :)

Let's roll!

Well everyone....I am back in action! With the 1 year stay on the CPSIA...it buys me sometime to get Zeebabee back in the game. All systems a go!! I was very excited when I heard the news on Friday. I had felt over the last few months that I was in a stand still but now it's time to rock -n-roll. I have lots underway right now.... So hopefully I will have some exciting news for you all real soon.

I will be in talks with Oakwood Hospital tomorrow about getting Zeebabee into their gift shop. Can't wait to hear what products they will be interested in. Also one of my good childhood friends has a store in Novi, MI called Sincerely Yours and she said that I can send some of my products to her for her to sell at the store. Very excited about that. Because I know my products would do great with her clientele.

I am working on having a professional brochure designed and printed up. I was kind of kicked into gear to get it done because a pediatric eye doctor contacted me and would like to have some brochures to give to her patients' parents. She is a firm believer in what Zeebabee is all about!!

So those are just a couple of the exciting things that are going on right now with Zeebabee. There lots more but I must go and get back to work now....time is limited when you have two little guys running around.....3 when hubby gets home from work....LOL.

Watch out!!

So hands down Zeebabee Products are sweeping the Baby Showers by storm!! I have received numerous emails telling me how much the Zeebabee gifts they gave as their baby shower gift was a huge hit. They get the oooohs and the ahhhhs from the crowd. I am looking very forward to this baby shower season this year!!! I can't wait to hear all your stories of how you gave the best gift!!

Spring is around the corner...

Maybe I am a true optimist...but signs that spring is right around the corner have begun. Some of you are laughing at me, as you look out and see the inches and inches of snow on the ground. But have you noticed that it doesn't get as dark earlier as it used to about a month ago. And another reason is that business is picking up...a true sign the the baby shower season is approaching!! LOL!! A true sign of spring!! Spring has to come soon, because as a work at home mom of 2 young boys, I might just go insane if the boys don't get some fresh air and play outside!!!!!!! I know all you moms feel what I'm saying. Maybe if we all started chanting SPRING TIME! SPRING TIME! SPRING TIME! it'll come sooner. (couldn't hurt) :-)

This past week I have been quite busy with sales...good thing I had got my workspace completed and organized...just in time. Now it's time to get it all messed up!!! :)

Have a great weekend!

Zeebabee Workspace

So I have finally got my workspace organized in the new house and here are some of the pics that I promised. It's still pretty plain and I need a chair. But I am very excited to have a space all of my own just for my work....and it is clutter free....woooo hooooooo. The closet in that room has all wired shelves inside for additional storage (which is all being utilized).

And for Christmas this year my hubby had my Zeebabee logo framed...It was a great surprise!! :) Here it is:

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday season with your friends and family. I really can't believe how much has changed over 2008 for me and my family. If you would have told me last January that a year from now I would have Zeebabee Designs up can running and that I would be living in Ohio....I would have laughed! Funny how things work out. 2008 was a great year and I hope that 2009 will be just as successful for me and for the ones that I love.

I am finally working on my Zeebabee workspace here in the new house. I will try to post some pictures real soon. I would say tomorrow....but you know how that goes....LOL.

So it's time for some New Year's resolutions. I'll share mine if you share yours. Okay...I'll go first....I definitely am going to try to eat better in 2009 and work out. I need to get this body back to where it was before all the baby making!! And my philosophy in 2009 will be "if I can dream it...I can do it...." Okay now it's your turn...tell me what your resolution for this year will be. :)
