I was really keen to help out with this but in all honestly I am reluctant to commit at the moment as I am having a hellish time with morning sickness :( I would hate to commit then have to pull out and I don't think I need the extra stress at the moment either (keeping up with website orders is bad enough!!).....

I am keen to help out on the day still. Nikki has given me some of the nappy info for a stall, so I'll go through that and see how much is usable.

I'd be happy to take the demo kit off your hands Lisa, if you no longer have time to do that? I think it'd be fun showing people the range of fabulous nappies there are :D

I had a little ring around yesterday to see what venues were available. Haven't heard much back yet but will keep you all up to date. They all seemed to be $25 per hour. I thought if the people selling nappies all pay $20 or so it will cover costs.

I would be keen to catch up with you all in person to get things really rolling and meet you. If anyone has a home we could meet in that would be great, otherwise we could arrange to meet at a cafe. Monday next week is good for me. Tuesday and Wed out but Thursday might work if it has to.

I may be able to help on the stall, will depend on what time it will be on, as I'm still working around 3 sleeps a day, but she is portable ;) so can sleep in the pram. Can confirm if/when you decide on a time :)

I know there are some sort of brochures out there for TNN, but I could show some of my home made nappies and have brochures to hand out to people who are keen to DIY.

if some of the happy nappy makers out there donate a nappy then we could make up some packs to raffle off and make some money for charity.
Id be happy to donate some nappys/wipes/inserts


That's a very cool idea, and I have a couple of naps made up that I never used - just need inserts :)

Shall we plan for a meeting at your place Posh (is it Anastasia?) for Monday, say 10am if that is good with you. And then we (or I) can meet later in the week, or the following week with AliG to update her.

I will try to get some feedback on venue availability at the end of this week. I am lacking in advertising ideas.

It would be great for everyone who wants to help out even a little bit to come along to give input and ideas.

How does that all sound?

Ali, what kind of way is that to talk about poor Jamara? :smt044 (seriously it took me a few seconds to work out you were meaning Tessa :lol: )

Don't think I will be able to make it to a meeting, but then I don't think I'd be up to helping out atm, good luck with the planning, etc :D

Can we confirm a date for this meeting?

Can people make Monday? Or should we choose another day?

Hi,

We have another business in Jville, (which im running Busybehinds out of) and we're happy to offer the space for this. I've discussed it with my hubby and with a little bit of man power we can re arrange furniture to set things up. Its on the first floor but we are expecting the lift to be installed within the next few weeks which will make it pram and preggy friendly :D
Im happy to show anyone around if they want to come and check it out and see what they think.....
If anyones keen just PM or email me at tash@busybehinds.co.nz.
Tash

WAHM!!!
Mum of 4 gorgeous kids!!
