Mom of the Week – Pamela

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on July 14, 2008

This week I would like to introduce you to Pamela. She is the owner of Happy Panda, the tagless baby clothing line for bigger babies, and the creator of the Cyber Baby Shower. Pamela is due to deliver her fourth baby, a girl, in September.

Pamela, thank you for joining me today. Would you please tell all of us a bit more about yourself.
As you know, I am the owner of Happy Panda… I truly enjoy creating new graphic designs and working with a team of people to bring the public my end product. The experience of taking an idea and seeing it to a finished clothing item has been so much fun. I enjoy seeing babies and young children in Happy Panda clothing.

The online community has been great. There are many internet business owners and forums that have been helpful to learn from. I believe in being a pivotal business owner that remains involved with other vendors as well as bloggers and help promote everyone. Currently Happy Panda is hosting our 4th online Cyber Baby Shower. The showers have been a great platform for companies to introduce their products to participants. We do invite everyone to participate. The Cyber Baby Shower Sponsor blog was created to provide links to companies who have sponsored previous and current events.

Happy Panda is not only responsible for the updates on the cyber baby shower blog but also our company blog. It is important to let consumers know the designs we are working on and what events we are involved in currently. We have found Blogger to be a great resource for learning about coding and how templates work. Happy Panda also has a blog spot where we do more promoting of other blogs and online resources.

Bloggers and review sites are very important to all companies big or small. Opinions of the online community are a great marketing resource because people are using the internet as a research tool to find product reviews. We are seeing more and more appreciation devoted to bloggers by major corporations. The larger companies are helping to sponsor annual Blogher Events and conferences.

Did you always want to be a mom?
My childhood dream was to go to college and start a career before I began motherhood. The choices that I made resulted in being blessed with motherhood first. Being a mom was the best thing that could have happened to me. My first born gave me more of a purpose and clearer direction for my life and I’m truly thankful.

If you could travel to any where in the world, where would it be, and why?
I have always wanted to go to Ireland to tour the castles and hopefully run into Bono or any band member of U2. I’ve been a fan since I was a kid.

What is the most interesting thing about you?
The most interesting thing about me is that I love to research. I spend a lot of time trying to figure out all sorts of answers to business ideas, marketing, blogging, html coding. My educational background are in the fields of behavioral and social sciences.

If you had to put your life motto in to one sentence, what would it be?
Make mistakes but never make the same one twice.

How can we pray for you this week?
You can pray for my health. I have just recently come down with an awful head cold! I’m doing what I can to recover. I would also appreciate any prayers for the safe delivery of baby number four when she decides it’s time to come into the world.

Thank you so much, Pamela. You are an inspiration to all of us to make our dreams come true!

Do you have any encouraging words, tips or ideas for Pamela? Kindly leave a quick hello for her, or any words of encouragement that may help her on her journey as a wife and mother, and then hop over and say hi to Pamela, introduce yourself, browse around, and get to know her… She is a great mom and a great friend!

*****
Do you know an incredible mom who deserves the spotlight?
Or, perhaps would you like some encouragement yourself?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, please
email me with your nominee, at fromdatestodiapers@gmail.com with Mom of the Week as the subject.
