I'll Try Again Next Year

Posted by 2 on

Sending a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who voted for Tail Wags Helmet Covers in the Mompreneur of Excellence Award. Although Tail Wags wasn't listed as one of the top 10 (it was based entirely on the number of votes), I'm happy to say that one of my friends, Devorah from Red Thread Designs was successful.

The following blog post was written by the owner, Jamie Berube, of the Hamilton/Grimsby Wee Piggies & Paws, a company that creates timeless keepsakes of your baby's hands and feet. Jamie and I recently met at the She's Connected Conference in Toronto and we immediately found plenty to talk about. In fact, we skipped one of the conference workshops just to share our stories and ideas. Jamie offered to write a blog for my site about her son.

It's long overdue (but better late than never) ... The Tail Wags Helmet Covers web site is now bilingual!

I am very pleased to announce that Diana is going to play an ongoing role within Tail Wags as our new Francophone Community Director. Please welcome her by following her on twitter at...
