Hey! I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 little ones reaching out for support from other local moms :) I recently took a chance and went for something totally out of my field. I designed some clothing for moms-- think functional, versatile pieces that are also fashion-forward and even a little edgy! ;) and sent my concepts to Betabrand, a cool SF clothing co. And they liked it & put it up on their site! :D My "Badass Mother" Collection consists of 3 items; a biker jacket, leggings, and an oversized clutch. I am hoping some of you will check out my items and if you like them, vote! With enough votes,my items become actual prototypes! It's super easy: Just go to betabrand.com, Think Tank dropdown menu, and select 'vote" and vote via FB or email. That's it. No further hassles!! Thanks so much!!!

Well...that's a thought! I just found out how to make 'waterproof' fabric out of plastic bags...there's my liner material right there!

Now you've got me thinkin'! If I can come up with one, I'll send you a PM with a pic of it.

Thanks Shawnn, really nice of you to say! :D I will keep trying! And sounds like you've got a really cool thing going, best of luck to you as well! (and do let me know if you make diaper bags, as I am always on the lookout for cool ones!)

Well, Liz, if you ever do make it south...LOL...you're welcome to wander our market any time! Its a lovely outdoor setting in a public park ;-)

It was a stretch for me to put my stuff out at first...I'm naturally shy, and don't think that people would be interested...but when I started doing the upcycling of burlap bags from one of my friends that has her own coffee roasting business, and she sold the purses, etc that I made, I decided there must be a niche for the items.

Keep putting yourself out there. You do seem to have a flair for design!

Thanks very much! I can't say I'm brave though, it hasn't been easy putting myself out there. I'm pretty off the grid to begin with, so I had to really push myself. At least my friends got a good laugh seeing FB friend requests and tweets flying in from me, I guess! ;D But now it is the hardest step of all, reaching out to the public at large. And I guess first lesson learned, thank you! And hey, If you have any suggestions, by all means let me know.

And I am intrigued by the doodads and upcycled goods. That's really cool that you make and sell your own stuff! It's too bad this isn't a local site as I would definitely have stopped by the market (we have tons here in OT btw err sorry thats Ottawa, Ontario) and checked out your stuff! ;)

The voting ones are almost as bad as the 'stuff for sale' ones, Liz. But, at least you are not asking folks to vote your kid as cutest for some quacky contest...

Good luck with your designs and such. You're a braver woman than I, putting your product out for public opinion...I just make my little doodads and upcycle stuff and sell 'em at a local market in the summer.

I'm sorry I didn't realize. I am totally new to this. It didn't even occur to me that it would be considered as trying to sell, since it's just for people to vote. My bad. :-[ Sorry again.

This is 'just great'.

However, you failed to see the solicitation policy, which includes promoting websites that sell crap, and asking for votes on things.

Here's an idea, though...you could go back to the welcome page and look for that pinned post to see if there IS a page on here that would accept this post.

Besides that, this isn't a 'local' site...it's international.
