Congratulations to winner eclairre!
This week everything beneath the rowan tree is just Tickety Bu!
Become a fan on our BTRT Facebook page to get the latest giveaway news
and follow this blog, too, so you won't miss a thing!
(see 'Followers' box on left hand side).
I am thrilled to welcome Kristi of Tickety Bu to my little blogspot this week. And because I know you are wondering, 'tickety bu' means everything is all right!
Seriously. Like, seriously enough that this requires a bulleted list serious.
- Cuddle Throw for snuggling all year through~ it lives on our couch and is a must for scary movies (which at our house are kid's movies with a bad guy, we are wimps!)
- Mezzo Bu for Rowan's bed (custom dued to match her room) which is the only blanket that I can keep on her on cold winter nights, it has just the right weight and drape.
- Hooded Towel ~ we love this thing! It soft, warm and absorbent (terry) and if we leave the hood on for dressing, then Ro's hair is halfway dried, big timesaver at bedtime.
- Wipes~ once we tried TB velour wipes as washcloths, we have never gone back to rough terry!
I asked Kristi to share a little of what is exciting her right now about her business:
Business is growing, and growth is exciting! Tickety Bu is new to Etsy, which is fun. We'll be launching a new website soon and the blog has been rejuvinated, which means I'm actually blogging. I love to blog but had lost the time for a bit. I'm glad to be back to it as I love using it to share custom stories since my customs are such a strong part of my business and they normally have such a rich story to them.
When asked about what exciting things are happening with her family, she answered:
The biggest excitement in our family life has been the coming and going of chickens. We recently got a small flock of various breeds and have been raising them since a day old. They are adorable, quite loving and the kids are fascinated by them. It's been wonderful to work on something together as a family, from caring for the chicks, to building a coop. The upcoming holidays will soon overshadow the excitement that the birds have brought though. From Halloween until after the kid's birthdays in January is the busiest, but happiest time around here. We all get caught up in the holiday cheer and we take a lot of time out to do things together as a family and build new traditions. I'm always amazed at how important those traditions are to the kids even though they are so young.
I also asked Kristi to share her favourite family holiday tradition:
Wow, that's a tough question given that there are so many. We decorate the whole house for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, so that is always fun. The kids love to decide where to put everything and they each have their favorite decoration. The whole family gets into it and we all love it equally. We also take a day and go into NYC to see the decorations at Rockefeller Plaza and the windows at Macy's. Grand Central Station is always decorated and we nibble on holiday goodies each year. Walking around the city during the holidays always puts us in the mood for Christmas cheer. And of course making cookies. We make a ton of cookies each year, sharing them with friends, Santa and of course each other. We try new recipes each year and the kids always do the bulk of the cooking. It takes all day in the kitchen and it's a huge mess, but we love every minute of it, including sampling each as we go!
(I am planning on relocating to Kristi's house right now).
Cadara is the phonetic for hug in Hindi and this blanket is definitely designed to hug — a swaddling blanket taken to a whole new level. Wrap your little one in luxury with the Cadara Bu.
Made of a single layer of bamboo interlock, the Cadara Bu is the ultimate in softness. It is lightweight with the perfect amount of stretch and cling to hug your little one in comfort. Oversized at 35"x48" so you can swaddle your little one as they get older, or so you can swaddle your big little one. And, after the swaddling days are through, the Cadara makes the perfect light weight blanket for the car, stroller, or on those cool days and nights.
Machine wash, no bleach, tumble dry. The use of dryer balls will keep your bamboo velour soft and supple and cut drying time.
This week (November 18 - 22) we are hosting a giveaway of
this gorgeous new Cadara Bu by Tickety Bu (as pictured here)
