Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!
I hope that you are all enjoying a little down time and savoring the joy and wonderment of the season with your families and especially the children.
Just when I thought I had it all figured out and would finally have a beautiful and fully stocked website for a first annual Boxing Week Sale.....trouble strikes!!

We had a crash of our main site on Christmas Eve...I know, Merry Christmas right?? yea... Ho HO HO.

The good news is....we now know the cause. The bad news, there is work to be redone.

I must start off by giving a HUGE public thank you to Jen of Blue Hollow Designs. I sent the email on Christmas Eve, honestly not figuring to hear until the 27th ish.

When I had a few quiet moments on Christmas Day, I logged into my email and found a group of emails from her identifying the problem, an initial restore, and some "bridging" of the gaps for customers.

That in itself was my best gift of the day!

So...the long and short is that the site is effectively down for the time being. I expect that once this holiday week is over we will get down and dirty and get at it to get the functionality and appearance restored. Then I will be able to reload all of the product items again. As I get each section completed I will open them up and make them available.

The good news is that is shouldn't take too long (more than a week or two) to get the products all listed as I had recently been working on the images for what was supposed to be the Boxing Week site wide Sale.

In the mean time, you can hop over to Hidden Element ( ) for some Boxing Week sale items.

There are many items on Facebook in our Nov and Dec Project Albums and many of those items may still be available so please email us if there is something that interests you.

If you are local...this is our last week at our storefront at the Co Op Mall. We will be open Tuesday (28) 10-4, Wednesday (29) 9-4 and Thursday and Friday will be pack up days. There will be some great specials on items so please stop in and take advantage of them!

We will continue to work from our home studio throughout the year and look forward to serving ALL our customers smoothly once again soon.

Exciting News!!!!!

BB Butts Diapers has opened a storefront for the month of December!!!

We are located inside the Co Op Mall just inside the partition doors beside the food floor.

This has been made possible from an enormous amount of help from my family. Few of us realize the amount of help that family members put in to assist a WAHM in making dreams come true. Be it hubby who is home right now looking after littles and cleaning and making dinner or running to the post office, or the eldest son who babysits extra hours, my mom who sits in the store and helps me in the sewing room or her husband who is "McGuyver", the do anything type of guy, it takes EVERYONE, not just me!

Most of all it is the customers who keep purchasing and driving us forward in growing the business. While I cannot sustain the store long term, it is wonderful that we are doing this for the season. Simply put, my kids are first and with a little man who is still two, my time is best spent at home long term, not in a store. He will grow and in a few years we will re evaluate the needs of our family as well as those of the business and may decide to have a permanent storefront at that time. For now, we do it when it works.

Vanderhoof is a wonderful community. Always so many events and happenings. Many of these are centered around kids or done with the kids in mind. To kick off the Christmas Shopping season, this Friday is Moonlight Madness. It all begins with the Parade of Lights. Upwards of 100 floats all decked out in Christmas Lights and carollers will go along the parade route to kick the evening off. It is simply SPECTACULAR. Candy is given to the kids, merchants along the route serve hot chocolate for the spectators and then after the parade the shopping begins!!

BB Butts Diapers is participating in the madness of Moonlight Madness. We will be having some hour long specials at differing times throughout the night.

3-5 PM 20% off Kitchen Cloth

7-8 PM 15% off Wet Bags

9-10 PM 10% off chalk mats, crayon wallets and gift tags

11-12 PM 15% off diapers

Come on out Friday and celebrate with the community and let the magic of Christmas begin!!
