Good afternoon Birdie friends~
I wanted to take a moment to thank each & every one of you for being here and making Birdie Baby a smashing success in it's first year. It has far exceeded my expectations & I feel so very lucky. I truly do. In addition to getting the opportunity to spread my creations around the world (Yes, world! Canada to Thailand to the UK to Australia :) this year I have managed to make some incredible friends along the way. We opened up the Etsy shop the day before Valentine's Day & joined FB shortly thereafter--- I smell a celebration coming on in February!
I would love to hear back from you what you think of us. How are we doing? From customer service to shipping speed to quality we give 110%, but there is always room for improvement. I love nothing more than recognizing a name & knowing we must have done something right if you're back for more. Thanks in advance for any & all feedback you want to share!
I figured there is also no better time than the present to share a little more about US!
As many of you know there are two of us behind Birdie Baby... Myself, Katrina (Katy) Bjork & Carla Cook. We're both best friends & business partners... proof the two actually can mix, if you have the right ingredients.
I'll admit it, I'm type A... (although, I prefer to call it A+) I do much of the planning, marketing & "driving" for BBB. Carla is my much more laid back & go with the flow counterpart. We both "create" but tend to have a bit different styles--- I'm sure our regular followers can tell the difference between a Carla bow & a Katy bow.
Carla's beautiful contributions usually come in the form of bows, clips, satin flowers and most recently, hand stamped jewelry, which she has really taken an interest in & plans to expand on it in the new year!
Carla is a BUSY mom of 3 of the most adorable children I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I love those little ones like you all wouldn't believe!! Hey baby girl is the same age as my baby girl & her younger son is the same age as my little guy... and they all look up to her oldest son. What a clan we make when we're out shopping together, which is often ;)
Among other things I happen to be an obsessive crafter... My creations range everywhere from the cupcakes to flower headbands & everywhere in the middle. Most popularly, the blocks!! I am planning on counting how many sets I've made this year, but I can already tell you I've logged some SERIOUS hours on my Shopsmith. It's been a very busy year & it has flown by!
I'm a Texas transplant & have lived all over the country--- 11 states & working on relocating to the 12th. I'm married to an airline pilot so I have plenty of free time to create after the kids are in bed & it's just myself & my ideas. We have two little cuties, Kenneth & Delainey, ages 3 & 1 1/2. My family lives in Florida now, in the Tampa area so we are hoping to make the move to be closer to them. It will definitely be good for the kids (and us), since my husband commuted the Philadelphia now for work! (How many Florida friends do we have out there?!)
Delainey, our resident Queen Bee, is waking up from her nap now, so I'll wrap it up. I do look forward to hearing back from you folks. Even if you just have an idea you'd like to see come to life in 2011, we'd love to hear it!
Best wishes & a huge THANK YOU from us at Birdie Baby <3
May all your Christmases be Very Merry & Bright!!

Good afternoon Birdie friends~

Morning friends! Facebook has recently changed a lot of their guidelines, so to be safe I plan on posting all of our promotions & contests on our blog. So if you aren't a follower, you definitely should be.. and I promise to actually blog once in a while ;)
I do love a good promo, competition or anything that motivates folks. Who doesn't? I also love you fans. Birdie Baby has been very successful this year & I truly do like to pass that along to you guys. Those of that that have been with us for a while surely can attest to this!
We've stalled out at 4,300 fans & I'd LOVE to see us make it over the 4,500 hump by the New Years. Help us out!! Send your friends our way, tag us in your status, post our link, and mostly, have our new friends tell us who sent them. We're offering up a $25 gift certificate to whomever sends the most love our way once we reach our goal of 4,500.
Thanks to everyone who has helped make Birdie Baby a success in 2010, it's been an amazing year & I am really looking forward to what 2011 will bring!
Lots of Love,
