Prissy Designs All-In-One Diaper Clutch is featured on Bethenny Getting Married?!!!!

Here is proof of the power celebrity gifting can have in the promotion of your product!!!  Laura Page, the creator of Prissy Designs All-In-One Diaper Clutch, is a fan of Bethenny Frankel's show "Bethenny Getting Married?" and was following the birth of her first daughter.  She sentBethenny her fabulous All-In-One Diaper Clutch as a congratulatory gift.  By gifting a product there's always the hope that you get the kind of promotion that Laura just received.   
To her amazement and surprise, her product was featured on one of the recent episodes in plain site for the viewers to see.  Many times this is how the celebrity will thank hard working entrepreneurs because they know it will greatly benefit their business.  Celebrities get so many products and gifts, but the classy ones such as Bethenny are very appreciative and grateful for everything they are given. 

Congratulations to Bethenny on having a happy and healthy baby and congratulations to Laura for sending a celebrity who you truly respect your fabulous product and getting the publicity you so dearly deserve!!!

Safety Information for using a baby bath aid

Washing your baby is an everyday activity that many parents enjoy. In order to have a safe bath, many parents choose to use bathing aids. A bath aid is intended to provide support for the baby while leaving the parent hands free to wash the child. A bath aid normally includes bathers, bath seats or bath rings (molded plastic or fabric). Each bathing support fits to developmental age of your baby.

From May 2005 all bath aids are required to be labeled with warning that children have drowned using bath aids and that bath aids are NOT a safety device. The label must be visible at all times when the baby is in the bath aid.

Here are critical features and guidelines all labels should entail:
  • Never leave a baby in care of children. A child could slip or climb out of the bath aid and drown.
  • ALWAYS look for the following features: 
  • A warning label should state the bath aid is not a safety device.
  • Check that the product has the manufacturer’s name and instructions.  
  • NEVER Leave a child in the bath in a bath aid while you answer the door or telephone.

    USING the product:

    • Always keep the baby within arm’s reach
    • Have the child’s clothes ready before you place the baby in the bath aid
    • Keep water to a minimum level
    • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions
    • Most important: enjoy bath time with your baby. It’s an opportunity to leave all house chores aside and focus in spending quality time with your kids.

Inventor Showcase: Eclipse Spa - isn't it time to go to your spa at home?

One of my favorite things to do is treat myself at a spa.  I'm lucky if this happens once a year.  Now Eclipse-Spa products make your home just as luxurious as any high end spa you could possibly go to.  With the economy the way it is, most of us are looking for ways to save money, but still treat ourselves.  Now is your chance!  Here's more information about Eclipse Spa and the creator Anne Keefe:
Q. What made you want to start your own company and launch a line of spa products?

I was so stressed out with my career to the point of having an anxiety attack on the freeway and thinking I was having a heart attack.  I knew I had to plan an exit strategy.  What's the opposite of stress?  Spa products, baby!

Q.  Why should someone purchase Eclipse Spa products? 

EclipseSpa products are for women (or men) that want naturally based products with scents that will transform their emotions and heal their body.  Our divine collection were created with nutritious ingredients to soften, soothe and protect the skin.  We want you to experience the tingle and glow of our products.

Q. Womentorz is proud to have Green products available on the site.  How is your product Green? 

By protecting the environment with organic and natural spa products that are biodegradable and containers that are recyclable. We use recycled shipping boxes when we can, recycled tissue paper, natural  handmade gift baskets and most of our products are made in a 100% wind-powered production facility that was built using Eco-conscious materials and methods. 

Q. What was your experience like in formulating your line of spa products? 

I worked with an experienced holistic formulator that has given me great guidance for my product line.  I have taken classes and listen to what my customers want.

Q. How do you balance running a business with your personal life?

Fortunately, we don't have children,otherwise it would be tough going.  We do enjoy the unconditional love of our dog and 2 kitty cats.

Q. What did you do prior to starting Eclipse Spa? 

I spent 29 years in the dental field.  The last 10 years was in dental sales which was very rewarding, but stressful

Q. What fact would readers find interesting about you? 

I have cycled over a 1000 miles in 5 years of participating with Team in Training-as a participant, mentor and coach.

First Road Trip of the Summer To Coupeville, Washington

As I mentioned in a previous blog posting, I am making an effort over the summer to make up for all of the time I have dedicated to my business over the past year by planning a weekly road trip with my two sons, spending some much needed quality time together.  My six year old son selected Coupeville, Washington as his choice for our first adventure.  I had never been to Coupeville, so this was going to be an educational trip for all of us. 

The morning of our road trip took much planning and organizing.  I worked late the night before on projects for Womentroz and awakened to a ton of emails waiting for me to respond.  I forced myself to close the computer (which is very hard for me) and focus on my priority for the day.  When the kids woke up from a restful night they were very excited about our trip.  This gave me new energy that made it all worthwhile.  

We were finally packed and off to Mukilteo to catch a ferry to Clinton located on Whidbey Island.  I was surprised how large Whidbey Island is and how sparsely populated it was.  It was an extremely beautiful drive to Coupeville, but not nearly as interesting and beautiful as the town itself.  This history of the town is amazing to behold as it is the oldest town on the entire island.

I could tell that my oldest son was really appreciating the trip and the history of the town.  It was the first time I had seen him enjoy visiting a museum and learning everything about the area. Both of my sons were just happy to be spending time with their mommy.  It has been a long time since we've had this type of quality time together and made me realize that there is much more to life than business.  Sometimes puting things into perspective helps to balance and re-energize ones self, which has positive results all around.

It's nice to be making up for lost time this summer.  I'm really looking forward to our next trip to Redmond Ridge, Duvall, Carnation, Snoqualmie and the rest of the Snoqualmie River Tour!  The falls should be the highlight for the boys.

Happy 4th of July.  Enjoy your time with your families.
