It has been a while since the last post....Can you guess why?

Yes, it is true...I am a terrible blogger!...but aside from my blogging limitations, I have been extremely busy making dolls that by now are living all over the world!!! This year has been fantastic for MamAmor!! We are growing very fast and it is hard to keep up with all the news!!!

First of all, THANK YOU for all the Custom Orders! I am overwhelmed with the amount of orders I received in the last few weeks... I had to say no more orders for Christmas at the end of September! I have never been this busy before... I am loving it!

The new website has been a big hit, visited by now by way more people that I ever imagined! Thank you for the great comments about the site and especially the music, I didn't know that there were so many music lovers out there...for the non music lovers..you can turn the music off...I still love you!

September, October and November are show, trade show and conference months, and of course, MamAmor were, and will be at many of them this year!

The Vancouver Island Baby Fair in Victoria was great, it is always wonderful to be by the ocean for a few days, and visiting family and old friends was a bonus!

The Lamaze Conference in Milwaukee was also great, what was not great was MamAmor's booth there, as it was almost empty...most of you know by know the lost luggage story! Oh well...the luggage is still lost...who knows where my 12 sweet mamas are now???? I still hope that they will find their way home...

I am glad I was an exhibitor at the CAM Conference in Edmonton a couple of weeks ago! What a lovely bunch of midwives! Almost sold out and met great people!

Looking forward to two more exhibitions this year....Nov. 5th to 7th is the CAPPA Conference in Calgary, I am hoping to be able to make enough dolls to take there...I haven't started yet!

And to end this fantastic year, MamAmor will be exhibiting at the Weestock 2010 Holiday Edition this Nov. 20th here in Edmonton, stop by for a great Christmas shopping!

You all know that I have been OUT of stock for a while now....Looking and finding help to make the dolls hasn't been easy, you know how particular I am about my dolls, I want them all to be made with lots of love and respect for what they stand for. I am VERY happy with the current team- Thanks so much mamas!...., and happier this week that I'll start training a new mama tomorrow!

There is no doubt that all this is a LOT of work; adjusting to the new work load has been a challenge for me and my family, although a good challenge I would say! I feel very lucky to have such an amazing and supportive family, especially my husband, who aside from working full time and making the most amazing meals ever, he still finds the time to take the kids out to do fun things so I can have a few extra hours of work...ALWAYS leaving and coming back with a smile!!

GIVEAWAY!!!! Yes!!! GIVEAWAY!!!! I keep saying that we have so celebrate so many things...the new website and the +2350 Facebook friends to start with.....just give me a few more days to make a special Giveaway mama...I'll announce it soon... This time the Giveaway won't be in FB but here in this blog!!

So...Came back soon!
