Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?

Moms, Minivans, & MessesAre you a mom? If so, did Paper and Parties Co. have anything to do with initiating the business?

Paper & Party Co.:I am a mom. I have an amazing, supportive husband and a one year old daughter named Lily. I have always been an entrepreneur. I owned a restaurant at 24 and knowing that I wanted to get married and start a family I left that venture and went to work a 9-5. I realized pretty quickly that that wasn’t for me and dabbled in a few other businesses before this one stuck. It marries my passion for DIY, creating and business perfectly…and who doesn’t love a party?

I suggest people focus on the part they love doing, maybe that’s the baking or the photography or styling a fabulous party and hire out some of the other things. It is much less stressful and there is more time to enjoy your event. (Maybe you’ll even have time to put on some mascara and brush your hair before the guests arrive😂)

We get more creative. We do it better next time. We make no excuses. We find a way.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: A portion of the KEEP Collective Manifesto:

And we make no apologies about benefiting from the success we work hard and smart to create. We are here to make a living. And a solid one at that. Our income gives us peace of mind, pays the bills, buys take-out when we’re busy, puts our kids through college, and gives opportunity to many other women along the way. We’re proud of that. We love writing our own stories. We hold the pen.

SafeSip: No More Spills….EVER!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What is the name of your business and who are your potential customers?

SafeSip: Name of business is SafeSip (Parent company is Zinch Designs Ltd).   SafeSip is suitable for children through to the elderly.   We sell a lot to mothers of children from toddlers through to teenagers.   Our second group of customers are within the healthcare market as SafeSip is suitable for all ages to help people drink with dignity from ordinary cups, mugs, glasses or cans.  Our third market is the outdoor campers and those travelling and also we sell to those going to festivals and finally to those that want to protect their drinks in clubs and bar.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?

SafeSip: Initially we launched SafeSip into the healthcare market, but demand was high from right across the ages, from children, girls who go clubbing, within the healthcare market, those in hospital, the elderly, campers and outdoors and even those that simply want to stop their pets drinking from their cups – as people could see that SafeSip could help them to avoid spills and stop their drinks from getting insects dust or germs in it.     SafeSip can be used by virtually all ages.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are you a mom? If so, did this business have anything to do with initiating Safesip?

SafeSip: Yes I am a mother of 2 children Lucy 16 and David 14 – and it was as a direct result of David knocking a glass of drink over my husband’s lap in a restaurant many years ago that led me to invent SafeSip.  I made the first prototypes and it was at this stage that a close relative of mine was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and I could see from the difficulties they were having drinking from ordinary glasses that spurred me on to finish SafeSip in a style that would suit from children to the elderly with a simple, but stylish design that can be produced in a dignified clear colour through to vibrant bright colours suitable for all ages.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What do you expect to be the outcome of “Safesip”? 

SafeSip: We are expecting to make SafeSip a household name initially within the UK and then to roll that out across Europe, USA and Australia – we are one our way we now export to 9 counties and are rapidly getting a great following within the UK.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Where can I find information about “Safesip”? 

SafeSip: We have a website www.safe-sip.com and you can also read about us on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SafeSip/?ref=hl and twitter: https://twitter.com/safe_sip.

We are registered with Trustpilot https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/safe-sip.comand independent review site so you can see what customers who have bought SafeSip think of it.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are there any promotions for your products through reading this blog?

SafeSip: Yes we currently offer – free postage on quad packs and for reading this blog we can offer 20% discount of our QUAD pack – your readers use the code at checkout  JESS20 for the www.safesip-us.com site.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Who is “Safesip”? (One mom, multiple moms, etc.)

SafeSip: SafeSip was invented by Melissa Edmunds – mother to 2 children who worked to get the invention patented and made in the UK.   This was  passion of mine to have the product and all the packaging made here, both for quality reasons and because we wanted a UK made product.   We now have expanded and I have another mother who works with me part-time and this year will be looking to add to the staff again.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: The average mom has a child who make messes with their drinks. Can you tell me how this product will help alleviate the messes that moms don’t want to live up to these days?

SafeSip: Being a mother myself and inventing SafeSip as a direct result of my son knocking his drink over I understand how annoying a simple spill can be.  SafeSip stops the drink from spilling when knocked over – stopping that massive volume of liquid from going over everything from carpets, kids, electrical equipment to cars.    It also you to stop taking loads of large bottles and beakers when you go out – it is small and easy to pop into your handbag or glove compartment in your car and off you.

SafeSip is simple to use just make sure the glass and the SafeSip are dry as this creates the really strong seal – put it over the top of the glass, pop in the straw and off you go.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What does the future look like for Safesip?

SafeSip: We are evolving SafeSip all the time so a new version of Safesip will be out this year, along with some exciting new products that compliment SafeSip such as a carry case, drinking cups and a range of outdoor friendly drinking cups – all to be launched in 2016.   We are looking to further expand our on-line business and shop.  We are currently selling into about 20 UK retailers and are looking to expand further into the mother and tot market, healthcare and camping and outdoor with our new ranges.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Moms, like myself, struggle with cleanliness, how will your products alleviate the hassle for moms, minivans, and messes?   

SafeSip: SafeSip is so easy to keep clean, because of the simple design it does not harbour germs or suffer from the mouldy problems some sippy cups do.   It is really easy to wash either in the sink or put it in a dishwasher, simply dry it off well and off you go.   It is small enough to carry around in your handbag or pop it in the glove compartment of your minivans and you are ready to go to stop those annoying spills, or insects, dust or dirt getting in your drinks.

I love making shirts for him, with images and phrases from movies he likes, or with positive or Christian messages on them to be a light to others and stand out in a good way. I then started offering them to others!

Frosted Hill Creations: All of my products can be completely customizable, so they can feel great wearing, looking at, or playing whatever they get from me! I do have set items, but colors and other parts of each item can be custom made to what you want.
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What does the future look like for Frosted Hill Creations?
Frosted Hill Creations: I’m optimistic that the future is good for Frosted Hill Creations! I’m still a small, not-so-well-known shop currently, but I’m hopefully that I’ll learn and grow!
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Can you individualize Frosted Hill Creations products to service kids and how?
Frosted Hill Creations: Of course! As I said earlier, everything is customizable, so you can get exactly what you’re looking for. I love that my games can be made to learn shapes, colors, or both! I also just started selling learning games to help kids recognize numbers, and will be expanding to letters soon!
