One of my Sweetest Fans!

Let me introduce you to one of my sweetest fans, Sean! doesn't get much cuter than this little fella!

He was born just a few short months ago and it's been a blast for me to watch him grow into things I made for him while he was still in his mama's tummy!
This is him rockin' his "Punked Out" Hemp Fitted...
And how about this Construction print pocket & BabyLegs???
This was one of our limited Dragon Brocade pockets, and he seems especially pleased with it! ;)
Sean likes to spread awareness for important things just like we do, so here he is showing his support for Autism Awareness.
And last but certainly not least...I think this might be my favorite, looks at those squishy jaws!!! Eeeee! :) He's wearing a fleece soaker here.
His mama is one of my favorite and most faithful online customers friends :) and I am so very thankful for her continued support of ZooNique Baby!

If you have pictures of your lil' sweeties using any of our products, we'd love to see and share them! Just send us an email.

Happy Fall!

We had a great summer around the "Zoo House", but living near the gorgeous mountains of East TN, we love to see the transformation of color that fall brings!

We are busy as ever with family, foster care, charity sewing and keeping our area of Echelon's gift shop fully stocked with lots of handmade cuteness! We also just moved a bunch of goodies into their summer clearance section at 50% off, so if you're nearby, you'll want to check that out! 
As well as see all of our new seasonal additions!

Thanks for your continued support!
It not only allows me to continue doing what I love, but allows me to share that with others!
Happy Fall!!!

**Please note, due to life as it is, I am not currently accepting custom orders or regularly updating our Hyena Cart. If I can be of assistance to you though, please email me!

Refreshing Reminders

Every once in awhile you are blessed with the moments in life that serve as reminders of why you do what you do. That recently happened for me and I wanted to share.
These precious faces are of little sweeties at the Starfish Foster Home in China, waiting for their forever families. They are wearing bibs and using burpclothes I recently made as part of a sewing project at Hopeful Threads.

I don't think there is anything quite as motivating!

A glimpse of the "Why?" behind ZooNique Baby.
Thank you for your continued support! Each purchase you make from ZooNique Baby enables us to help more in ways like this!

Birthday Bash Begins!!!

May is the "official" birthday month of ZooNique Baby and we have lots of fun plans in store to celebrate turning 3 years old! Including some fun giveaways and FREE DIAPERS of course!
To start, let me introduce you to my friend Paxton.Isn’t he a little cutie? Yea, we sure think so!

Paxton is the most precious son of a very dear friend I’ve known since high school. (we're just not saying how long that's been!) ;) Pax is part of a pretty amazing family and is special for many reasons, but one is that he has Hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a chronic brain disease in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities of the brain called ventricles. There is no cure and very little medical advancement since the 1950's. Hydrocephalus affects 1 million Americans and 1 in every 500 children are born with it. Children with hydrocephalus will likely grow up into adults who do not have the basic needs we all take for granted, unless we find a cure. The most common treatment for hydrocephalus — and the most common procedure performed by pediatric neurosurgeons in the United States — is surgical implantation of a device called a shunt. A flexible tube and valve system, a shunt drains cerebrospinal fluid from the brain to another part of the body. About 40,000 shunt-related operations are performed every year in the US for hydrocephalus — that averages out to about one every 13 minutes and over 100 every day.

You can learn more by visiting the Hydrocephalus Association and by following their facebook page.

Now, about free diapers...
We want to kick off our birthday month celebration by raising both awareness and funding for the Hydrocephalus Assoc. Paxton currently has a fundraising goal of $2000 and he is less than $500 from his goal! WAY TO GO PAX! Let's help him reach his goal! And to make it even more fun, for any donation amount made to the Hydrocephalus Association via his page you can be entered to win a Mr. Robotics diaper just like Paxton’s! You get to choose the size too!Here’s what you need to do...
* Make your donation here. The money will go directly into his fundraising account and is even tax deductible!

* Come back here and comment that you donated w/ receipt # Make sure to include an email where we can reach you if you win. You can write it like, info (at) zooniquebaby (dot) com if you prefer, just so we have a way to notify you if you win.

* Tell your friends! Seriously, you will want to spread the word on this one! Why? Because, you’re helping Pax and other cuties like him! PLUS, if Pax reaches his goal by May 15th, in addition to the Mr. Robotics diaper one of you will win, we will additionally give away TWO "Summer Fun Prize Packs" valued over $50 each with goodies like a wetbag, diaper, insert, wipes! And you even get to select boy/girl and size if you are a prize pack winner! That also increases your chances of winning since there would be three prizes!

So, breakin' it down...
2. Comment here with your donation receipt/email
3. Tell your friends!
4. Be part of something great!

***One Entry per person. Winner(s) will be expected to provide proof of donation. International participants welcome with the understanding that you will be responsible for shipping cost if selected as a winner.***

April - Autism Awareness

Did you know, Autism affects 1 in 110 children? 1 in 70 boys? Those are really staggering statistics. Chances are, your life has been touched by someone with Autism or you at least know someone's who has.

We are blessed to love some very dear friends who live with the reality of autism and the affects of it on their children, their families and their day to day lives. There currently is no "cure" for Autism, but I, like many others, hold out HOPE that one day there will be answers that provide the individuals and families living with it peace, support and acceptance.

Today, April 2, 2011 is World Autism Awareness Day and we want to help get the word out! Will you join us?
We would like to offer this colorful, one-of-a-kind Autism Awareness Gift Set to one of you! It includes an embellished prefold/burploth and a reversible bib in the Autism puzzle print. The prefold/burpcloth is trimmed with plush ric rac and the bib is backed with super soft, red dot minky. Here's what we ask to get entered:

  1. Leave a comment here sharing a FACT you have learned about Autism. This can include science, ways to advocate, services for families, opportunities to give, other awareness projects or any other factual effort to get the word out. (keyword here is "fact"...I for one have emotions tied to the reality of autism, but for this specific project, we want to focus on informing readers about the facts facing those with autism. Thanks for understanding.)
WANT ADDITIONAL ENTRY OPPORTUNITIES??? Ok! :) After doing the above you can,

2. Share this post on your blog or facebook page and leave an additional comment with the link to it.

3. Follow World Autism Awareness Day on Facebook and comment here that you do.

Please note, because unfortunately some folks like to try and use comment sections for their personal business advertisements, we moderate all comments. Only comments pertaining to Autism Awareness will be approved. We will approve comments daily. Thanks again for understanding.

We will randomly select a winner from the comments on April 15th, and post the winner here and on the ZooNique Baby facebook page. Please make sure we have a way to contact you if you win either by leaving your email address with your comment or making sure it is connected to your profile.

Thanks for participating and helping others become more Autism aware!

10 days for JAPAN

I've been trying to brainstorm a creative way to extend our help to Japan since news of the catastrophe hit. Seems sometimes over thinking it just makes it complicated, so here is what ZooNique Baby can and will do right now to help our friends in Japan...

Starting today, Tuesday, March 15, 2011 - Friday, March 25, 2011, the money from any sales made through our Hyena Cart will be sent to support relief efforts in Japan. That's 10 days for Japan.

Here's your chance to support those involved in this terrible tragedy AND get a little something you can use at the same time.

Please, share this with your friends and continue to keep those in Japan in your thoughts and prayers.

Sunshine makes me HAPPY!

Ok, I can't help but sing it these past few days...
"Sunshine on my [sewing machine] makes me happy!!!"
My kids always love it when I put my own words into songs. ;) I have been very much enjoying the warmer, spring-like days we've been having around here. It has inspired lots of creativity and cleaning, which means 2 products and a SALE! Trying to decide how best to offer that so both my local AND long distance friends can enjoy.....I'll keep you posted. Spring is still "officially" a few weeks away anyway, and unfortunately around here, Winter doesn't usually leave this quietly, so I suspect.....nope! Not gonna say it! Let's go back to the song...

"Sunshine on the water looks so lovely..."

Grown up sewing!

Well, it isn't as often that I sew for those above a size ending in "T", so I wanted to share one of my latest creations. This pattern comes from the lovely Whimsy Couture and I was proud and thankful to be one of the pattern testers for this new design....not to mention, I love how it turned out!
