Here comes baby!!


When it comes to annoucing that our bundle of joy has arrived what better way to do that then with an annoucment made by Polka Dot Bumblebee. Whether you need to annouce the arrival of a boy, a girl, multiples, adoption or birthdays, Polka Dot Bumblebee has what you need with over 500 designs to choose from as well as the option to custom design. I interviewed Veronica on how she got started with her business.

" I started a baby gift business 7 years ago which focused on expectant parents. I loved being part of welcoming a new baby into the world so much. Long before I become a mommy, I knew that I wanted to create a successful home business that
would allow me to be home with my baby, contribute to my family financially and
flex my creative muscles.I set to work on creating my own ultimate dream job,
designing custom photo cards and personalized stationery.When I welcomed my
beautiful baby girl to the world, I was confident that I had built the foundation for a business that would fulfill my two ultimate goals. Never missing a moment or a milestone with my daughter and pursuing my passion - being an entrepreneur. Thousands of designs and happy customers later, I am excited with every new order to work with my clients to create a keepsake "work of heart". My business changes every single day and I'm eagerly looking forward to what is on the
horizon."



What all does Polka Dot Bumblebee have to offer? Photo birth announcements, photo save the dates, photo invitations, cardstock invites and announcements, custom candy bar wrappers, play date cards, ecards and being finished up right now is a personalized stationery line! So how is Polka Dot Bumblebee different from other boutiques?

"My attention to detail, one on one service, hundreds of original designs
and exellent customer service. Above and beyond, my prices set me apart
because they are so affordable."







Here is my favorite design from the new stationary line! I think it matches great with my business, don't you? Check out all the new designs and find your favorite. You won't be disappointed by the colors, the details and the quality! Check out the top 3 sellers: Our photo birth announcements are our best sellers, along with our holiday photo cards and birthday invitations. Our ecards and custom candy bar wrappers are really popular too!

What I found to be so rocking about this mommy owned site was that fact that it is GREEN FRIENDLY!! Just a bit from their site so you know how environmentally friendly this company and product is, just check this out: We use recycled office products and limit packaging materials. In addition, we work with a printer that uses wind powered electricity to generate power. We also participate in a monthly tree planting initiative. We are proud to be a member of the Co2Stats Project that makes our website environmentally friendly. CO2Stats monitors how much electricity is being used to power this site and you as you browse it, and then it "offsets" the emissions by investing in renewable energy projects that help to counteract global warming. We are continually reminded of our favorite Native American proverb, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
