BLUE HIBOU WAIT LIST SLOTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2017
Sep
9
8:59am 8:59am

BLUE HIBOU WAIT LIST SLOTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2017

September's Wait List Slots will be available via draw only. These custom conversion slots are projected to be offered in FEBRUARY of 2018. The draw for slots will be open from Saturday September 9th by 9AM, closing at 8PM EDT. 

DETAILS ON THE WAIT LIST SLOTS:

A deposit of $50 CAD gets your name on the Wait List for a guaranteed slot for a custom wrap conversion carrier. It is not the purchase of an actual conversion or a designated slot, it is a nonrefundable deposit to be added to the wait list to be contacted when slots become available. When your name reaches the top of the wait list, you will receive an email with the conversion slot offer, including the timing for the slot, when your wrap needs to be at BH HQ, etc. This email will be sent approximately 4-6 weeks ahead.

How the Blue Hibou Wait List Slots work:

  • As Jo works through the wait list, you will be emailed ONCE to let you know your position is coming up.
  • When you receive your “Good News from Blue Hibou!” email, you will have 3 days to reply to the email. If you pass on your slot (i.e. no response to the email, or you reply to decline the slot), you forfeit your $50 deposit.
  • Wait list spots are not transferable. One slot ‘Swap’ is allowed, either with another person on the wait list, or by bumping yourself down the list by a maximum of two months. If you’ve ‘Swapped’ or bumped your slot once already, it must be used or forfeited the next time it comes up.
  • Absolutely no ‘selling’ or giving away of your spot on the wait list. If this is discovered, the wait list slot will be withdrawn, you will lose your deposit, and both people (the slot holder and the receiver of the slot) will be banned from any further custom slot with Blue Hibou.
  • One slot = one carrier.
  • One slot per household rule. If you’ve already got a slot on the current wait list, a second slot will not be available to you until after you’ve used your current one. Using your current slot means your conversion is completed and ready to ship. Once you’ve used up a wait list slot, you’re free to add yourself to the Wait List Slot draws again. (This does not apply to any last minute slot draws, collaborations, 'Pick Your Timeline' slots, or other queue jumping slots.)
  • Please check the Getting Ready for your Custom Experience page before adding yourself to the wait list. (Prices and options are subject to change without notice.)
  • Once your wrap has arrived at BH HQ, turnaround time is usually within 3-4 weeks. (If you ship your wrap earlier than your projected slot date, as indicated in the “Good News from Blue Hibou!” email, this may differ.)
  • A document in the Blue Hibou Chatter group is available to see approximately where you are on the wait list. This document is updated on a monthly basis.

Blue Hibou now ships worldwide! We are fully compliant with CPSIA and ASTM F2236 (for US sales of Signature Buckle Carriers only) and with all mandatory and voluntary Health Canada regulations for all Blue Hibou Carriers.

The $50 CAD deposit will be required within 24 hours of the draw closing. Non-paying entries will be removed and another name will be drawn in your place. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH THE DEPOSIT.

Payable in Canadian Dollars. Please check your country's CURRENCY CONVERSION.  All carriers shipped within Canada are subject to HST.

Blue Hibou 4th Anniversary Celebration!!!

to Dec 12

Blue Hibou 4th Anniversary Celebration!!!

Want to read a true story before we head into tomorrow's Anniversary Schedule? <3

The Blue Hibou Story, and How it Came to Life:

When I began Blue Hibou back in 2012, I had quite a different idea of what my little 'hobby' would become. I was sewing custom cloth diapers, one-by-one, in the basement of our home in Kenora, while pregnancy insomnia, 'morning' sickness, and restless leg syndrome had me up at all hours of the night. As a self employed person, I was looking for a way to keep me at home with my baby just a bit longer, before heading back to work as a massage therapist. But as life does, there were very different plans in store for Blue Hibou and I. I made my first baby carrier in February 2013. Just a few weeks before baby J was born. With custom diaper orders keeping me busy, I managed to eke out my first carrier, intended for my little guy once he was born (funny story: it was much, much too big and a major pattern adjustment was made!). The first wrap conversion (Storchenwiege Leo) happened shortly after my son's birth, probably in April, although my thoughts on timelines around then are blurred by night feedings and family visits. My first official wrap conversion customer was a local mama with Didymos Fishes. I was so scared to cut into that wrap!!!

I'm going to back up a bit right here, because there are a few things that were very pivotal in how Blue Hibou became a full time decision for me. So pull up a chair, this is a long one. ;) A year before we found out I was pregnant, after months of dealing with what I thought was just a persistent kink in my upper back, I was diagnosed with three herniated discs in my neck, from a long, long ago horseback riding fall as a teenager (more like dozens of falls ;) ). It was quite the personal blow for me, I was an avid weight lifter and runner up to that point, and had to make some serious decisions about my passion for weight lifting. So now I run exclusively, my days of picking up a bar are behind me. I was told by a chiropractor and an MD that my massage therapy days were also numbered. At the time, I put that into the back of my mind and kept working. I continued to work full time as an RMT until I was 36 weeks pregnant. 

From that point, life snowballed. My husband's job transferred us back to my hometown, and I began working outside the home a couple days a week in my 'regular' career job as an RMT, and sewed while my son was sleeping. My neck issue continued to creep along as well, until I had to make a decision again there too. That's when I made the jump to pursue permanence for Blue Hibou Carriers. I put my massage license on hold and jumped in with both feet. That was the winter of 2015. And now here we are, with a nearly full time job for me, making carriers out of all your beautiful wraps!

Over the past four years I've made so many friends, met so many unique and beautiful people through Blue Hibou and babywearing in general. Customers that have become friends that I 'talk' to every day. Others of you that I can't wait to get to know better. And more I have yet to meet. We all share a special kinship: the desire to hold our babies close. You all provide me with so much joy and exuberance in my daily life, I can't express how fortunate I am to be able to take something I've always loved doing as a hobby, and make a career out of it. I sincerely hope that you all continue with me along this journey, because I'd love to have you along and I know there are many, many more adventures to come!

So, without further ado, I'm sure you're all just on the edge of you seat wanting to know the schedule for tomorrow!

Monday's post schedule:

12:00pm EST Blue Hibou/Mad Hatter Wish carrier, $1082 USD, plus shipping and insurance.
