The Babytime Show Spring 2013

The Mamalicious Mamas have 100 members!  Awesomeness!  I decided to pound the pavement, approach exhibtors at the Babytime Show and see if they would be interested in offering perks to the Mamas.

Knowing hubby would be taking Missy Miu to swimming, I decided to go to the salon to polish up my look.  I got a haircut.  I have learned now that we have a baby, having the time to do hair and make-up is not optional.  Since they were hanging out today, I was able to touch up my hair and wear makeup.  It has been awhile since I adorned a professional look.

The show was hopping. I missed Missy Miu, but she would not have had the patience to hang with me today. It was a slow pace, and I stopped at many booths.  I had some business cards printed and purchased off of Vista Print and I presented them to each vendor.

The response was favourable. Everyone I had approached were interested in The Mamalicious Mamas. Here are some of the booths visited.

I cannot wait to negotiate and post perks on our meetup board.  This is so exciting.  I feel like I can make this venture really successful.

Facebook Page Is Up

I am loving my Meetup Group Scarborough - Pickering Mamalicious Mamas.  I love Missy Miu (my daughter) with all my heart, but sometimes maternity leave can one feeling a bit lonely.  I created the group not only to gain some company for Missy Miu and I, but to also exercise my creativeness.

We love the playdates, but sometimes Mamas want some social time and new friendships. I would hope that in my Meetup Group, a mother would say, "I met some great people and attended some interesting events while on mat leave."

Lately I have been wondering if event planning for Moms could turn into a full-time gig.  

I have decided to stop imagining, and see what I can accomplish within the next 4 months.

This week I created a Facebook Page - Mamalicious Mamas and the response has been positive.  Some of the Mamas and my Facebook friends have liked the page.  Within 24 hours the page accumulated 54 Likes.

I hope the concept of Mamalicious Mamas expands from its current area.  In order to do
so,  I need to create a following through social media.  I have a Twitter Account as well.
