When On to Baby launched on Valentine's Day in 2011, it was truly a labor of love. I was pregnant for the first time with my little girl Gracie and fully immersed in all things baby. I loved being a part of the Wedding Chicks staff during my wedding planning days, and as an expecting mom, I wanted a similar experience as I delved into the world of nurseries, baby showers, birthday parties, and family portraits. With their support and guidance, Wedding Chicks founders Amy and Jocey gave me the amazing opportunity to launch On to Baby as a division of the Wedding Chicks.
Over the past three and a half years, our readership has grown tremendously. We’re all grown up! It was time for a change and some much needed site improvements. The Wedding Chicks company has transferred ownership of the site over to me, and moving forward they will have no affiliation with us. However, the management of this site (that means me!) remains the same as it has from day one. To make the new ownership change clear, they requested the website be renamed and that's how we became The Little Umbrella! While we were at it, we completely rebuilt the site from scratch and spiffed things up. We also have several more features in development that will be here soon!
Be sure to check out our brand new printables system, which will let you change your printables to ANY color you want and see your changes right on the page. We have so many new printables coming down the road, from party suites to birth announcements to nursery artwork.
We also have a new vendor guide, with all the vendors we've ever featured indexed so you can find everything you need for your little one. (Psst, is your business indexed and you want to upgrade it to a featured listing? Not listed yet, but want to be? Get a featured listing for 20% off your first subscription period with promo code UMBRELLA20 - expires 8/15/14).
If you need a little help finding your way around, please leave a comment or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be happy to assist!
Thank you so much for reading and being a part of our community. It has been my honor to build and manage On to Baby, and I'm so excited to see where this next chapter as The Little Umbrella takes us!
