Hey everyone! I want to start this blog out by just saying that all of you have been so wonderful in helping me get on my way as a WAHM. These first 4 months have been a lot of trial and error, and I have learned so much from you. I want to continue making positive changes and move in the direction that pleases you the most. I truly appreciate all of your support. I want to reiterate that if for some reason there is any flaw or problem with your diaper that you contact me, as immediately as possible, and I am more than happy to work with you on a solution. I don't want anyone unsatisfied or feel that your money was not well spent.
On that note, there a few changes being made beginning August 1st, 2012. After 4 months of mostly weekly stockings, I have decided that it fits my family's life style best to have every other week stockings. So until further notice, I will only stock the store every other Wednesday night at 9pm eastern. This will only mean more diapers at each stocking!
Second, there has been some mention of curling wings. I am now completely aware of this fact. I realize some wings don't curl at all, while other wings curl badly. I have made a few adjustments beginning in August to hopefully accommodate this. I have made a tester for myself and so far so good. I know there may be some of you that this does not bother at all, but I realize that perfection is key when it comes to our diapers, right?
Lastly, some babies are too big for a Just Born diaper, while at the same time, too small for the 2nd Generation One Size fitted. Stocking a few Generation 1 patterns at each stocking may come about as I have taken note that this would be something those "in between stages" babies would need. The 1st Generation soaker system will not be used, and has been completely done away with. These diapers will be constructed with the same soaker system used in the 2nd Generation pattern. If this seems to help out, I will try to keep this as an option.
Stalkerazzi Congo will have it's grand opening on August 10th! Stay tuned for previews during that week at http://www.facebook.com/stalkerazzi and http://hyenacart.com/stores/stalkerazzi/ Here, Diaper Donks, The Diaper Addict, Bouncy Bums, Coco's Fluff and SoCo collaborate to have a once a month stocking of truly amazing hand crafted diapers. We have already begun working on these and you will not believe what we have planned!
There will be 2 diaper giveaways announced on August 8th. The photo who received the most likes during July's Cover Photo Contest and a reviewer from any place that you can leave a review of a Southern Comfort Fitted.

July holds some exciting events for SoCo so I would like to take a minute to explain those to you here.
Cover Photo Contest: Get those SoCo's OTB (on the bum) photos up on the page this month! Each week I will randomly choose a photo for the cover photo on Facebook. These photos will be changed each Monday. They will stay up for one week for everyone to click "like" and vote on their favorite one. At the end of the month, the cover photo with the most likes will get a free custom diaper! If this works out to be something fun, we will continue this each month, this month is a trial month!
Reviewers Giveaway:For another giveaway opportunity, this month only, I am going to compile a list of everyone who has written a review SOMEWHERE (HC, the BLOG, the FB notes survey, etc.) and give each of you a number. Random.org will choose a winner for a free diaper giveaway! So get those reviews in!
SoCo's Just Born newborn fitteds: Testers will stock the first week of July at a "tester" price. Those of you who purchase these will be emailed a survey to fill out. After the changes have been made, Just Born's will continue at each stocking.
New Style Pinny's with matching Hybrid Fitteds: This month we will be stocking brand new ruffled and tied pinafores and halters that have matching Hybrid fitteds. The matching fitteds used to be regular, but we are making them Hybrids (hidden layer of polyester fleece which allows the outside of the diaper to stay slightly dryer longer) so that the adorable handmade outfit will can last longer on. These will start stocking in the second week of July.
July's highlighted Prints: Indigo Onion and Mustaches: These will be incorporated randomly throughout July so be on the look out for some swirl dye organic bamboo velour and the ever so popular mustache print.
Reopening Customs: I know many of you are wondering about a customs list. The customs list is currently closed. Customs will reopen on July 25th with listings in the store. There will be 20 spots available. Once they are full, it will close again. Stay tuned for more info.
Please feel free to comment with any questions!
Thanks so much,
