Preparing for the BIG LAUNCH

Heh..... just as i'm beavering away for my little product launch (remember my ongoing project?), there's a HUGE HUGE giveaway happening at the October Afternoon blog! Go there NOW for some chances for big giveaways!!!!

Okay, but since it's my blog, i'm back to introducing my own little project. I've had this little idea in my head for quite awhile now, you know how it's so difficult to find the PERFECT little pressie to celebrate the birth of a newborn? And how even though the pressie might be really nice, there's still this niggling thing about the packaging (usually store bought and not terribly inventive). Do you wonder if there is another way to go about present giving? (or is it only me :P)

Anyways, i've thought long and hard about it and would like to present my new little venture. The ForTheRecord label has been with me for quite awhile now, and although the etsy site has had it's share of traffic (and have even been on the front page for a few times), i think the merchandising there lacks a certain LOOK, a certain Ooomph? So, i'm segregating my products into 2 main categories. ForTheRecord will stay as it is, which is a place to put in all the crafty goods that come out from things that my little girls say / do. This new website / shop will specifically be about BABY stuff. :)

So, after that lengthy preamble, you want to see the pics don't you!
This arrived this morning. I have now 10 of these curiously architectural towers in my hallway!Each of them transforms into a little takeaway carton! INTRODUCING .... (drumrolll)..... BABY2GO!
Each of these will contain little morsels of Love, packaged and presented perfectly in a little takeaway box.
Open them up, there are onesies, bibs, kimono tops etc, all lovingly handembroidered by yours truly.
The whole packaging.... :) But wait, there's more!
A coordinated card that arrives with the pressie.
Perfect for those little details :) or the inside could also be left blank for your own congratulatory notes.

All packed up and ready to be shipped!Okay... PHEW! That was a super long post.
Please bear with me while i get all the pictures up on the ETSY site. For now, if you would like to ask any questions, please let me know in a comment. Otherwise, you can also email me at babyTWOgo@gmail.com

Posting more pics soon!

Jacq, i'm having a b'day party for my one yr old this Saturday and i was looking everywhere for these take-away boxes! sometimes i just assume that i am able to find everything i need in Singapore :-( do you know where i can get white paper bags (normally for sandwich) instead (not the brown ones).
I'm definitely ordering some of these from you when bubba no.2 arrives, erm 6 mths from now!! :-)

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! :) Carol & amp, i think i've seen the white bags at Daiso. They're a bit pricey, but pretty good quality.
