Happy Holidays As we all start to sing Jingle Bells and other favorite holiday tunes, we realize that another year has come and gone. Our kids are all another year older; we have gone through (or are just about to go through) all four seasons, and we begin to feel thankful for all that we have, all that we have experienced, and for all the wonderful people who have come into our lives as well as those who we have had to say goodbye to. 2012 has proven to be another fun-filled, fast-paced, amazing year and we couldn’t have been able to provide our family, friends and more importantly, our readers with all the amazing product reviews, giveaways, stories and our of course, our digital magazines without an extended, supportive team. They say it takes an army…and it does! We would like to take a moment to thank all those who have helped us build up Tots To Teens Magazine. From our contributing writers, Mama Says… bloggers, and photographer to all the companies that have taken part in our Holiday Gift Guide, this wouldn’t be possible without you. Your time and dedication to make this magazine what it is today will never be forgotten. As you flip through the pages of our 3rd Annual Holiday Gift Guide, we hope you will click on the links that are highlighted and show support to the many companies that are featured. Some companies are bigger, some are smaller, but each page will provide you with a product photo, short description, cost and URL and all would love and appreciate your support. Our team has personally reviewed most of the products you see featured and we are proud to share them with you, our faithful readers! As 2012 comes to a close, we all wish you and your family a Happy Holiday & Safe New Year! The Tots To Teens Magazine Team Phyllis – Editor-in-Chief Adina – Managing Editor Deena – Photographer Mama Says… Bloggers: Toni, Claudia, Morgan, & Teryn !

Would you like to work with us? Become an intern or Mama Says blogger! Why be a T2T Magazine intern or Mama Says…blogger? Tots To Teens Magazine is fast-paced, and fun…lot of fun. Interns are able to watch the entire digital magazine process from start to finish. From finding products to feature, to researching stories, to page layout’s and more, our interns are given a great deal of responsibility and are selfmotivated. We are usually on a tight deadline so organization and time management is key. Some days you can even work from home…in your pj’s! Told you it was fun! Tots To Teens Magazine also offers moms an opportunity to become one of our “Mama Says…” bloggers. You have full range of writing and can do so at your leisure and it is posted on our website. We do not feel we need to babysit our Mama Says…bloggers, and we provide each mom with the respect they deserve. We know being a mom often has us running in 18 different directions, so we do not place too many expectations on them.

What T2T interns do: Interns work with the editor and managing editor to make almost every aspect of the digital magazine happen. They help with the creative and administrative tasks required in order to put the digital magazine together. Interns will help with story ideas, must be current with fashion and product trends, will assist with copy editing and proofreading, will become quite familiar with all social media outlets and help with event planning on a variety of levels. As the intern, you will also learn how we put pages together, page layouts and designs, photo editing, assist on photo shoots as needed, and of course, assist in raising funds necessary to keep the magazine going from month to month. We are a small digital magazine with a web presence, so to work with us, you must be patient yet work well under pressure, pay close attention to details, be a quick learner, be able to write effective press releases and be yourself.

Does the internship or Mama Says… blogger position pay? No, unfortunately our internships/Mama Says…blogger positions are non-paying positions. We do however recognize the valuable work that our interns do but we just cannot guarantee payments of any kind at this time. We make sure that the interns receive educational experience as required but for now it’s a strictly volunteer position. Our Mama Says bloggers are often asked to provide product reviews as we are a pr friendly magazine and website. Interns and bloggers are able to keep the products they review unless otherwise specified.

How do I apply or request additional information? editor@totstoteensmagazine.com You can send us your resume and/or questions via email: editor@totstoteensmagazine.com

Join our team! We’d LOVE to work with you!

Bow Allure Owner: Juliet Hartley www.bowallure.com bowallure.com

! Known for their durable yet fashionable craftsmanship, Bow Allure products are carefully handmade in the US with high quality materials. Exceptional care and construction is dedicated to each unique accessory, offering customers and retailers the finest in affordable hair accessories. Kids love them for their refreshingly youthful style; moms love them for their strong quality and great prices, and retailer’s love them for their quick sell thru!

What inspired you to create your company? JH: The first thought for Bow Allure came in 2010 as my oldest daughter, Sophia (at that time 3 y/o), was transitioning from toddler into preschool outfits. Like many Moms, the standard mass-produced, super store hair accessories were the easiest option, but the styles and quality of the products didn’t meet my expectations. I took a leap of faith and decided to make my own accessories for my girls. I began researching every in-trend magazine I could find, differences in material qualities, and assembly options. At first, my intention was to simply develop unique accessories for my girls, but after receiving so many compliments from people, I thought, “hey, I might be on to something here.” The rest, as they say, is history!

Your business has grown so well. Tell us how did you take it from a start-up to where you are today? JH: In one word, persistence. Mistakes are ok (and should be expected), as long as you learn from them. As with all start-up, small businesses, there are growing pains, but the passion and love for what we do is the driving force that has continued to propel us forward!

What advice would you give to other moms who wish to start their own business? JH: Find what you love and how you can make a niche in the competitive marketplace. Ask yourself, what can I do to separate yourself from other businesses? What do your (potential) customers need and want, and how can your product(s) meet these needs? Develop a solid business plan and don’t be afraid to fail. As Thomas Edison famously once said about inventing the light bulb, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” You absolutely must have passion, discipline and patience to make your business successful, but most importantly, have fun with it!

School of Wash Owner: Rebekah Davis www.schoolofwash.com schoolofwash.com The School of Wash delivers handmade bath products fresh to your door. And with our unique Pick-A-Scent System, all of our products can be custom scented to match your style. Choose from 175 different scents for your bath line or choose a different scent for each product it is up to you!

! What was your inspiration for School of Wash? When my daughter started school, she began to complain that she didn't want to use "that soap with the baby on it" anymore, which only meant a battle during bath time. I tried using "grown up" soaps but she came out of the bath smelling like perfume. So, in order to make bath time fun again and to satisfy my own desire for her to smell like a little girl, I developed my own line of bath products and allowed her to create the scents.

How do you separate work from home? I don't. I started selling my products only because my daughter kept telling her friends about the products her mom makes at home. My 10-year old daughter is my biggest fan, best sales rep and my product/scent tester. My husband handles my social media. We are a team.

What is your favorite product and scent? I prefer specific scents with specific products so these are my favorites...Chocolate Peanut Butter Liquid Body Scrub, Pink Champagne Foot Scrub, Brown Sugar Body Lotion and Rose Garden Shave Bar. More importantly, I love when my daughter uses her Lollipop Body Lotion and Rock Candy Star Solid Perfume.

Colic-Ease President: Lisa Yount www.colicease.com colicease.com ! Colic-Ease, Inc. introduced Colic-Ease gripe water in 1999. The first true herbal, American formula gripe water made from a blend of five herbal oils (not extracts or tinctures), that never uses non-herbal, less expensive substitutes sodium bicarbonate and vegetable carbon to achieve a result. ColicEase is the only brand of gripe water that uses FDA and EU standard antibacterial/fungal protections to assure gentle, safe results for your family.

Why is the major difference between Colic-Ease gripe water and any other gripe water formula on the market today? Only Colic-Ease is made using carefully chosen true herbal oils (not extracts or tinctures) along with a blend of FDA and EU standard protections against bacterial/fungal contamination that allow the customer to feel assured when giving it to their loved one that the highest level of safety was one of the components inside the bottle. Colic-Ease brand never has to be shaken before use; this assures the proper dose is given each time all the way to the end of the bottle.

What are some of the other differences that Colic-Ease has to offer opposed to other brands? Colic-Ease gripe water is manufactured in an FDA regulated, pharmaceutical grade American laboratory that is GMP certified. A certificate of analysis is produced for each ingredient and total formulation guaranteeing purity and safety. Colic-Ease follows DESHA (the FDAs manufacturing procedures and guidelines, something that homeopathic remedies do not adhere to). No refrigeration is needed and the shelf life is the longest of all brands, 3 years unopened and 6 months opened. Best of all Colic-Ease is sold at a full 7 ounces all other brands are only 4 ounces or 2 ounces per bottle.

Can adults use Colic-Ease or is it just for babies? Absolutely, In-fact Colic-Ease is so popular among adults we are working on an adult version. Any intestinal distress from hiccups and indigestion to acid reflux and nausea customers report outstanding results. In particular are patients who use chemotherapy that have very harsh side effects, tell us how Colic-Ease provided great relief allowing them to eat and rest.

Scraps2Love Owner: Kris Buote www.scraps2love.com scraps2love.com Creating Scrappy Buddies, from scraps to something you will love! How did you get started in your business? I used to make hand made dresses for little girls. After doing that for several years, I decided I needed a change; it just wasn't fun any more. Then one day my daughter decided I needed to do something with all the scraps of fabric I have, so we sat and thought what can we do? Then it came to us; why not make something out of these scraps that people will love. How do you balance business and family life? As a mom of 3, my family life is very busy! My boys are grown now, so they don't need me as much and my daughter loves to help out when ever she can. A lot of the work I do with my business is done with the help of my daughter. We plan out what the dolls are going to look like and go from there. !

All the Muches Owner: Amy Meyer allthemuches.com www.allthemuches.com This company is my hobby and passion; I am a one-woman show. The items are unique, affordable and chic and are all handmade by myself. I love creating fashions for your little ones! What does "All the Muches" mean? All the Muches is a special saying I have for my daughter and my niece and nephews. I ask them "do you know how much I love you?" and they used to respond "this much" (holding out their arms, fingers, head to toe etc). So I said "nope that's not enough because I love you all of those muches!" Now I just have to say "how much do I love you?" and they respond "All the Muches!" it's a special saying close to my heart so I used it for the business name. How do you balance business and family? This one is DIFFICULT for me as I am also a full time psychologist. The only reason I am able to do all of this and balance my family life is because I have an amazingly supportive husband! I set aside specific amounts of time each week for each job and I am certain not to exceed these limits, as my family is the most important thing in my life!
