The End is Here

Dear fans and followers,

Thanks for following Doable Diapers over the past 18 months.  I have enjoyed so much being a part of the cloth diapering community as a retailer.  My store will close tomorrow.  The website will no longer be available, but I will be keeping this blog open.  You can browse the archives for helpful tips and information, and I will pop in to say “hello” every now and then.

For your future cloth diapering needs I have two retailers that I would recommend highly to you.

Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique – I have personally ordered from this mom-run boutique and I have found their service to be top-notch.  And just like Doable Diapers, they offer FREE shipping to the United States.

Fluff Envy – though I do not have personal experience with Justine and her store, I have been a fan/follower for some time.  She has several unique programs, such as the Diaper of the Month, and also a layaway, referral program, and rewards program.  She recently opened a brick and mortar location to accompany her website, and I’m sure you can find what you need at her store.  Orders over $50 ship for free.

If you need to contact me in the future please use the following address: doablediapers@gmail.com.  Or you may use my phone number located on the “contact us” tab of this blog.

I hope you have many fluffy days ahead!

Items on Sale

I have begun the process of slashing the prices for items in the store.  I will continue to work on this as time allows.  For now, shipping will continue to be offered for free.  However, the time may come in the near future when we will start to charge a small fee for shipping.

UntitledYou can view the items already marked down here, or just browse the categories and note the item prices listed in red.  If there is an item you want and I have not marked it down yet, please be patient with me, or email me at info@doablediapers.com and I will put it at the top of my list.

Please note that I have done my best to make sure inventory counts are accurate. In the event that an item oversells or my count has been wrong, I will contact you about a substitute or a refund. We will not be ordering in any more products at this time.  Also, all orders should be considered final. No returns accepted.  I will do my best to continue to ship in a timely manner, but if the volume of sales is overwhelming things may be slightly delayed.

Thanks again for being my faithful customers & fans.  Enjoy the rest of your week, and I hope you have a blessed Easter weekend celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Beginning of the End

This is a hard post for me to write.  But it has been coming for a while, and the decision has now been made.  Doable Diapers will soon be closing.  Thanks to all of you who have followed me, made purchases at Doable Diapers, referred your friends, and interacted on Facebook and this blog. 

I have learned a lot from being a small business owner.  Doable Diapers was there to back up my husbands income when his employment was uncertain.  It was there to give me something to do, and let me be creative with my website and blog.  It gave Nolan 9 months Elaine 29 monthsme an outlet in something that I like and am knowledgeable about – cloth diapers.  But now I have two small children, and they demand a lot of attention.  Life in the City is harder {maybe more inconvenient would be a better choice of words} than I had imagined, and I can’t really expand my business out of my home any longer. 

I have also learned that running a home business can be stressful, time consuming, and demanding.  Those are things I don’t want in my life right now.  Over the last month when orders have been light, I was able to plan my days around my kids and be spontaneous with my schedule.  I didn’t have inventory to count, product orders to place, paperwork to file, or boxes to pack.  And it was nice.  My kids will only be young once, and I want to pour myself into them now while they are still teachable and moldable.

So after much prayer and 2012 prayer card jpg for digital useconsideration, my husband and I have decided that it is time to let go of Doable Diapers – at least for now.  Things in our life have changed, and we need to keep the focus and priorities straight.  I want to focus on my God-given roles of wife and mother, and in a couple of years I will also be homeschooling.  Maybe at a later time I can be a business woman again, if God allows it.  It’s a little sad, but a lot relieving.

I am working to double check my inventory and slash the prices on my current stock items.  I will leave the blog open, and I will still answer questions and comments as they arise.  If you have been a customer of Doable Diapers and you need help with anything, don’t hesitate to ask.  I’m still a cloth diapering mommy!
