Blogger Breakfast at Baby & Toddler Expo
Was a Huge Success ~Offline & Online!
Mama’s Little Helper hosted a breakfast meet & greet for the Philly area mom bloggers before welcoming them into the Baby & Toddler Expo in Oaks PA on April 16th at 11am, along with Montgomery Media, Parent’s Express Magazine and The Baby & Toddler Expo. During breakfast we had the chance to mingle with other Philadelphia Area Mom Bloggers that we knew, make new blogger connections from the area and get an introduction to the publisher of Montgomery Media, Betsy Wilson as well as our host, the Advertising Manager for Parents Express, John Bell. John was also my side kick for planning this event.

The winning ticket belonged to Jen, publisher of InTheMotherhood.com The fingerprint necklace is one of this year’s hottest Moms Day Gifts. Happy Mother’s Day Jen!, you’ll be rocking a hot gift this year! Please call Kristin to claim your prize and design your Mom’s Day necklace.
Moms were crowding Kristen’s booth imagining their little one’s fingerprints embed in silver (see her site for all available choices). The small print products include, but are not limited to necklaces, bracelets/anklets & key chains. Love a particular piece of artwork or hand written phrase your child has lovingly created for you…turn it into jewelry.
Just thinking about my little girl’s future artwork & her little words (her actual work, just shrunk down to fit) embedded in jewelry I can wear makes my heart melt. I’m imagining around the time my daughter turns 5, I will have some solid artwork she has done for her Mama and what every mom hopes for, lovingly written (read scribbled) “I Love Mommy” notes. The moment I have those in my hands, I will be on the phone with Kristen placing my order for a charm bracelet. I want to get her foot/hand print, a piece of her artwork, a sample of her handwriting and another fingerprint all individually created on charms to add to a bracelet. This bracelet, will be like no other in the world. This is a piece I can add to throughout the years. Anyone that knows me, is thinking…weird that Chrissy is even considering this, a charm bracelet because I’ve never been attracted to jewelry all that much, let alone a charm bracelet. However, the thought of having all those little pieces wrapped around my wrist right there for me to look at and adore whenever my heart aches for my little lady is just priceless to this mom.
Future Gift Ideas for Grammy & Aunt Chele
Grammy would love fingerprints, footprints and/or hand prints of her 3 grandchildren on a necklace to show everyone and my sister would love to touch her children’s fingerprints while she is apart from them during her workday, especially on travel business trips that seem to be happening more and more lately.
As a single, divorcing mom, my daughter is away from me more often than I would like. I’m going to wear my necklace everyday that my daughter is not by my side. When I rub her fingerprint, I will think of her and smile. I can’t wait until my piece is ready. I can actually close my eyes right now and just imagine feeling it and I feel my shoulders relax a bit…this Mother’s Day gift to myself is going to be a special Mother’s Day gift that will last me lots of years to come.
Make a mother day craft with this Mother’s Day Activity and you reap the reward of a kinda sorta homemade Mother’s Day Gift. Kristen will send you the paper and ink for the hand/feet and you can do those prints right at home.My daughter loved this part, but she also loves doing activities like these with Mama. Next, you need to get them back to her so she can shrink the image, clean it up and make them into jewelry, but when it comes to the fingerprint, she must see your child in person. Kristen came out to my house on Friday after the expo to do my daughter’s fingerprint. I ordered a silver teardrop shaped piece that hangs from a silver chain (you can choose from different lengths and style chains). One side will be my daughter’s sweet little footprint and the other side will be her tender little fingerprint. Then on the other tear drop I will have her fingerprint with the flip side having a special saying she calls me all the time (which I’ll keep special by keeping between her and I <3).
