After carrying a diaper bag around San Francisco for two years, I was over it. It had become a catch-all, and I spent a lot of time rummaging in it and not finding what I needed. I also missed carrying a regular handbag, and the diaperbags-masquerading-as-handbags I found weren’t “me.”  So I developed the EnveLoo. It’s a clutch that’s small enough to go everywhere with you and big enough to keep organized the things you need when you take a toddler to a public restroom. EnveLoo is chic on its own and sleek enough to fit easily in your handbag, backpack or messenger bag for kid-friendly adventures around town. With EnveLoo, you can ditch the diaper bag and still be prepared for the inevitable toddler visit to even the most cringe-worthy public restroom.

I have 14 years of experience in the Architecture and Construction Industry. After a number of years of experience at an award winning architecture firm, I left to gain practical experience in implementing design and administering construction at one of the premier independent construction companies in the Bay Area. I thought it would be only a few years before I returned to working at an architecture office but the work was so exciting and challenging that I worked as a Project Manager managing commercial construction for approximately seven years.  I now serve clients in a variety of roles ranging from consulting services in pre-construction, construction management, architectural design, design – build project delivery, and graphic design. My range of experience, interests and abilities allows me to provide the ultimate in client service, managing all details of projects of any scale.

Goody Foods

Goody Foods is a local food company specialized in healthy, fresh-made snacks.  They are now delivering to homes and offices in San Francisco, Menlo Park, Atherton and Palo Alto.

“At Goody Foods, we personally hand-make fresh delicious, nutrient-dense, low-sugar versions of snacks that are familiar to you and your family – muffins, bars, energy bites, cookies, crackers and other savory snacks.  The Goody difference is that we use alternative grains such as nut flours, teff, and barley that are high in protein, low in carbohydrates; natural sweeteners like whole fruit, applesauce and honey instead of refined sugars; and since our snacks are made fresh locally, they are free of preservatives, processing and wasteful packaging.”

Melodie Del RioPrivate Practice: Melodie Del Rio, MFTwww.sftherapyandcounseling.comI am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice. I have a special interest in working with pregnant and new mothers, parents, couples, and children. I have been working with families and couples for over ten years. I often see people with the following concerns: self esteem, anxiety, depression, life transition, loss and grief (including pregnancy loss), identity, relationship concerns, and painful/ difficult childhoods.  When working with parents, I often provide support in the following areas:  concerns around becoming a parent, life balance, postpartum depression and anxiety, uncertainty around parenting, sibling adjustment, parenting philosophy/ style, conflicts with partner around parenting, child’s temperament/ development, and family of origin concerns.When working with couples, I strive to help them learn new ways of understanding and responding to a variety of issues, some of which include intimacy and connection, trust, and communication.  My approach to working with couples is to help you identify triggers that emerge in your relationship, to explore how triggers developed, and to encourage mutual understanding.  My goal is to help you listen and respond to each other’s needs to achieve intimacy instead of reacting and engaging in a negative pattern.

True Harmony Music| 415-230-2882 | 1325 Valencia St. SF 94110

We offer vibrant, differentiated music and movement classes for kids 0-9 and their families that create a pathway to music literacy, encourage holistic development of the whole child and greatly enhance your child’s natural music ability (all children are musical) as his/her aural ear is developed and creativity is stimulated.

True Harmony Music was created to fulfill a need long-time musicians and music educators noticed was missing in the San Francisco area. Namely, a program in which a child’s musicality flourishes, development is stimulated and a pathway to music literacy is created. In the Fall of 2013, Group Keyboard classes will be added and kids will begin to play the songs they’ve grown to love, reading music they’ve been learning how to do in previous classes, improvising and even composing! All this happens in an environment where students encourage and motivate each other under the tutelage of their skilled instructor.

True Harmony Music has chosen the world-renowned Musikgarten curriculum as it combines the best in early childhood music education with the neuroscience of how children learn best – through play and movement. Classes are sequential, meaning the earlier your child gets involved the greater the benefits!

Sweet Sprouts

Sweet Sprouts ( is an interactive marketplace that changes the way families shop for their growing little ones.  Families can buy and sell new and like-new high quality children’s goods to save money and earn extra cash while also donating to their favorite non-profit organization.  At Sweet Sprouts families can save up to 75% on hundreds of brands and experience the growing and giving spirit of the Sweet Sprouts community.

Sweet Sprouts came about from my own personal experience clothing my son JT.  He grew so quickly that many of his newborn onesies never got worn.  I bought new clothes every few months – many which were worn only once before they were too small.  By the time he was one year old, he had already outgrown six sizes. So I tried to sell his new and nearly new clothes on Craigslist, Ebay, Thred Up and local consignment stores. It was a lot of work, took too much time, and the fees were too high.  I wanted a better, safer, easier way to consign items.    The seeds of Sweet Sprouts were planted.

Sweet Sprouts continues to grow as a forum that supports local families and their community. We offer opportunities for mom and dad entrepreneurs to start their own Sweet Sprouts stores  to earn money for their families while  giving back to the local community.

I hope you will enjoy Sweet Sprouts as much as we have in creating it.   Happy selling, happy shopping.
