It's Time for the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower!

Would you like to participate?
The Etsy Baby Shower tradition was started by June 3 years ago. Since then, the Etsy Baby Shower has occurred several times a year! For this shower, your hosts will be Jessica from BuggaLove and Deniz from DecorativeLabels.  We would be so grateful if you would consider participating in the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower!

For the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower, we would like to give gifts to 30 moms who are/were due between January 1, 2010 to April 30, 2010 and our goal is to provide 4 gifts to each mom. That means we need to raise 120 donated gifts!

How to Sign Up...
Donating Etsy shops must be willing to donate a gift(s) free of charge, including shipping, to the mom(s) they are assigned.  In return, we will help to promote your shop through different venues and on Etsy! In the past we have included any shop that makes baby items. This is not a team event and you do not have to be a member of a team to donate a gift for this shower. Everyone is welcome!

If you want to participate, please reply to this email with the following information:
1. Your name, Etsy shop name, and email address

2. How many moms would you like to donate to?
3. Do you have a gender preference for your gift(s)?
4. What country are you in?
5. Can you ship internationally?

Please note:  If you make jewelry, please only donate Nursing necklaces.  It's not that we don't like jewelry; it’s just that many of the moms are also jewelry makers.

The Winter 2010 Baby Shower thread can be found on the Etsy forums. Come join us there to chat with other participants!

 Many of the showers have had the continued support of the same shops each time and we applaud you for your unending generosity.
Thank you!
