A Baby Shower for Ruby

Emily M. and little Ruby

BabySteals designer Emily M., the original Emily who makes our websites so cute, brought her little precious gem, *Ruby*, to meet the Steal Network staff. So what did we do? Threw her a surprise baby shower of course!

As a group of ladies that work for BabySteals, KidSteals and ScrapbookSteals, naturally we had tons of ideas for the baby shower. We all put a little love and inspiration into the preparations to truly make it a delightful affair for the newest baby in the Steal Network family. Want to see what a baby shower BabySteals style looks like?

baby shower decor

We decorated the room with Babylicious pennants we have featured on BabySteals in the past and pink and ruby red tissue paper flowers hung from the ceiling. The look reminds me of the garden decor at the Bellagio. The paper flowers are easy to make but add a whimsical effect to any room (even the Steal Network’s conference room). To add a personal touch, we put removable vinyl letters to welcome Ruby in style.

baby shower cupcake toppers

Every baby shower needs cute refreshments! We ordered these cherry cupcakes from a local bakery and had our ScrapbookSteals queen, Kristy Lee, make these adorable cupcake toppers. Being as creative as she is, every topper is a little different and unique, including the four in the center that spell out “Ruby” in glitter letters. I mean seriously, how cute is that?! These could easily be customized for any shower theme or colors. Check here on the ScrapbookSteals blog for a how to.

Baby shower game

For one of our fun baby shower games we played the BabySteals.com word search designed by the fabulous Emily M. herself! Featuring words like “cloth diapers,” “ergo baby,” “aden and anais” and “speedy delivery” you can download, print and play this at your baby shower too! Give everyone a time limit (after all it even took Mr. BabySteals and his daughter 45 minutes to find all the words) and whoever has the most words wins!

Baby shower favors
Last but not least, Kristy Lee astounded us again with these cute favors for Ruby’s guests to take home. Filled with colorful butter mints, these bags were adorned with cute toppers that are completely customizable are a easy to make no matter your level of crafty skill. Check the ScrapbookSteals blog for how to instructions.

Think we buried her in borrowed stuff from the Steal Network warehouse? Think again. These are Em J’s steals–lawfully, legitimately and compulsively stolen. The best part is this isn’t even all of them! It may be an illness, but as Em J said, “Look at it this way, these are all products I either would have never known existed, never would have paid full price for, or never could have afforded if it wasn’t for BabySteals, KidSteals and ScrapbookSteals! Have I mentioned how much I love my job?”

We can’t wait to chat with you all on Thursday! Click here for all the information. Remember to get in the discussion groups and find a local SoS chapter.

10 Things I’ve Learned My First Month at Steal Network

1 ? Talking to thousands of women everyday, mostly from the comfort of my couch, really is as fun as it sounds.


2 ? There is a reason our fans rave about BabySteals, KidSteals, and ScrapbookSteals. This company is amazing from the inside out! Innovative, ever-changing and truly focused on the happiness and satisfaction of our customers. Steal Network leads with mind AND heart. We are not just another corporation without a soul.


3 ? Jana really is that gorgeous in real life. Hilarious and down to earth too. And no, I’m not buttering up for a raise. 😉


4 ? We are not afraid of change. Our company’s size and systems change as our company grows, which seems to be nearly every day!


5 ? My coworkers rock! The Steals crew is a fun, motivated and ambitious group of men and women. Also working at the Steal Network makes you an instant celebrity. I have already had my photo taken several times with excited fans. Ladies, ladies…sure you may have my autograph.


6 ? Our customer service is fabulous! Em J and her crew really are here for the customers. I hear praises at least ten times a day from all you fans.


7 ? Stealing is ADDICTING! I was a ScrapbookSteals customer before, but as a mama of one dog and zero children I thought I’d be immune to the draw of the baby and kid steals of the day. Alas, ’tis not so. How badly do I want to buy a pettiskirt for my boxer puppy? Don’t I need to start buying diaper bags, clothes and food storage for my future children? Good thing I have my SoS ladies!


8 ? We sell quality stuff! Our buyers don’t bring you cheaply made bargain brands. Steal Network looks for high quality, unique, and even luxurious items to give you at a steal. When I see and touch the steals ahead of time I can truly tell a difference.


9 ? I may never need to buy a parenting book. I have learned SO much about pregnancy, labor, parenting, and raising children just in the last month! By the time my hubby and I are ready for kids I will have all the tips and tricks I could ever need from all you experienced mommies!


10 ? We truly have the most awesome, devoted and hilarious fans in the world! I am amazed everyday by your excitement and loyalty. It makes my job such a blast and I am so blessed to be able to interact with you each day.

Help Us Win Start-Up Nation’s Leading Mom in Business

Please help us win Start-Up Nation’s Leading Mom in Business for 2010. As we read your comments of love and adoration for our three sites, BabySteals, KidSteals, and ScrapbookSteals, we are truly humbled and motivated to be the best company out there for our amazingly loyal and devoted fans. Last year the Steal Network was fourteenth in the nation. This year with your help we could make it even higher!

Steal Network is the home of three deal of the day websites built especially for women: BabySteals.com, Kidsteals.com and ScrapbookSteals.com. Each boutique store features one deal each day for a fraction of the retail price—50-80% off. The item is revealed every morning at 9am MST and is available only until it sells out. The company started with BabySteals.com, which launched in April 2008, and was the first deal of the day website to exclusively offer quality baby and maternity products. ScrapbookSteals.com came next and then KidSteals.com, which will celebrate its one year anniversary in October. Each store is supported by a strong and passionate community of mostly women. We love our customers! Thank you so much for supporting us!

We entered a little late this year so we need your help even more! We only have 13 days left of voting so your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your love and support!
