This week's photo contest winner was put up very, very late. In the future I will change the photos on a set day of the week, probably Tuesday, depending on when we get them processed from the week's submissions.
This is two-year-old Sophie, taken by Amira. This might be my all-time favorite goodmama photo submission, and I have a lot of favorites in my top ten! It might be fun to do a top ten photo submissions entry, don't you think?
Speaking of photos, we have finished our second be a goodmama! slideshow. You can see it here. We still have so many photos we want to share with you. All you goodmamas have the most beautiful children.
I have more photos from this week to put up on the site, I like to nestle them all over, so keep checking back!
In other news, hemp fleece shipped on Friday. It is headed to be washed. When it is done, it will ship back to be cut. Bamboo velour will be finished and ship sometime early this coming week. As soon as both of those arrive, they will be cut and we can begin production again. I will keep you posted with every development.
We are coming out with a new absolutely awesome gender-neutral bamboo velour diaper. As a thank you to all those who have hung in there with us, all current Wish Box and Switch Box purchases made between 1/27 and 2/17 will receive this diaper for free before they are sold anywhere else. We will not slow production to make these, they will be made after all Boxes are made, and may ship separately. We will not reveal the diaper until we are ready to ship it, but I am sure you will love it. I hope this exclusive expresses my gratitude for your patience and faith in us as we experience our growing pains.
Additionally, if your Box shipped without an email asking about substitutions/backorder, this means your order shipped complete. Please watch your inbox for an email from me regarding your Box. We are going by order number and by type of Box, so some of the emails may be slightly out of order, but not a lot.
If your situation has changed and you require a refund on your Box, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will process your request. On the other hand, if you would like to pick up a Box slot that someone else has had refunded, please email us at the same address. These would be filled last, but would also receive the free diaper.
(If you have an AOL account, please try using a different email to correspond as it seems we can neither send nor receive through AOL. We hate to seem like we are ignoring you.)
Another word about the Boxes, the diapers in them have the new pattern with the longer soaker. This will seem too long until it is washed a few times. You can even wash your soaker a few times more than your diaper to really prep and shrink it for best effect. The shrink rate has been mathematically calculated so that the soaker arrives at the perfect size after being prepped. If you have any questions or need any help with this, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com.
Again, I cannot thank you enough for all of your patronage and support. Many of you have sent supportive and encouraging correspondence and every bit is so appreciated.
