Hey All,

This is your space to write about your locally owned business. We want to support your business, but, at the request of our members, will now keep business-related posts in a new category so they don't distract from the community feel of the boards.

Need a haircut but can't/don't want to leave the babes?

I am a SAHM and hairstylist/colorist with 9 years experience. Since the birth of my daughter 5 months ago, I have been going to other moms' houses with my daughter, to cut or color other moms' hair!
The babies can hang out and play or stare at each other , and if they need us, we take a break from your cut or color, and continue on from there.
Some moms get a few friends together at one house with all the babies, and while one mom is having her hair cut (and maybe having a glass of wine ) the other moms hang out with the babies and wait for their haircut!

We can meet for coffee or tea and chat about your hair and our babies, to make everyone feel comfortable, and so we can meet in advance!

It IS a great idea Stephanie!

My plug for our new online boutique for babies and toddlers. We seek out smaller (SAHM's doing great stuff is a big part of what we carry!) companies that have style conscious goods. If you have a friend doing something great or a smaller company that you love - let us know about it!

Cheers! Kimberly

I am a local Event Planner, focused on providing affordable, fun & personal planning services.
I've been referred to as Part Planner/Hostess/Personal Assistant!

Whether a new mom & dad planning a 'Welcome Home Little One' party, expectant parents having a joint shower, or a big brother or sis needing a special 'me time' birthday party. Or, maybe you need a helping hand with planning a special adults only dinner.

I handle all the details & last minute errands, so you can focus on mentally, emotionally & physically enjoying the event!

A dear friend with a 3 year old turned me onto this site - what a great place! We are going to be new parents in Spring 2008

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I always offer a complimentary brainstorming session.

Posted: Tue Jul 31, 2007 5:24 am    Post subject: Looking for summer reading by a local author?

Debut novel In Retrospect by Seattle-area author (and Red Tricycle mom) Katherine Luck is now available on

A young woman is found bleeding to death after her husband has been informed of her long-secret affair with his brother. Is it attempted suicide? Or attempted murder? Flynn is a former army intelligence operative, dishonorably discharged for keeping forbidden and very personal secrets. Hired to protect this vulnerable young woman, Flynn feels compelled to delve into her past. The repercussions of digging through layers carefully guarded secrets will destroy both a wealthy, powerful family, and an unimaginably damaged woman.

To check out In Retrospect, please visit:

Hi All,

I thought some of you may be interested in my business as I know I have been looking for this type of thing for the longest. We send licensed massage therapists and child care providers to your home to give you a break from the busy life of parenthood, relax and rejuvenate. We also do spa parties, which is also a nice idea for play groups or even bridal or baby showers. Check out our site at: As we are just starting out we are still trying to figure things out but please do contact me directly if you have questions.

I hope to meet some of you!

At Nico & Zoe Toys, we do our best to find uncommon and artisan made toys from local suppliers - which means a lot less toys from China! We have a few (Melissa & Doug & others), but we also have lots of handmade and small business toys from the US, Thailand, UK, Germany, and South America. We have a lot more coming in September for the Holidays. So, take a look.

We also list where all of our products are manufactured on each products detail page so you can decide for yourself where you want you kids toys come from!
