Girls Night Out Fundraiser ♥

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Last Saturday was the "Girls Night Out" event to raise money for the South O' Brien School Playground Fund! The turn out was AMAZING! (200+ !!) I think everyone was completely blown away by how many people attended. I donated a $150 gift basket for the silent auction and I forgot to see how much it went for...Boo. I also donated 3 door prizes but I missed who won them! THAT'S how packed full the event ended up!

I really hope this event becomes annual...As it was really neat catching up with friends I haven't seen in forever and meeting so many new people who live right here in Primghar! ♥

A huge huge huge thank you to everyone who stopped by my booth and said hello!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


Around 2:30am this morning I got a call from my sister that our Mother's house was on fire. My Mom had been taken to the hospital and that was all of the information anyone could give me. No one was able to tell me where my brother and sister where (I later found my siblings at a neighbors house.) After rushing to the hospital I had been told my Mom was going to be taken to a larger facility in Sioux City, IA.Talk about going into massive panic mode... She did not have any burns but severe smoke inhalation. She was released this morning, due to having no insurance, with burns on her lungs and we do not yet know of any permanent damage. I have two younger siblings (10yrs and 15yrs) who ware unharmed, if not completely mentally shaken. My mother's husband and the family puppy are also doing ok. Talk about putting things into perspective...

The house is destroyed and they lost everything. I keep repeating this to myself and for some reason it just is not sinking in.

However, I am already blown away by the help the community has given us. The school has put together a donation drive for clothing and school supplies with teachers and staff contacting us for any help we may need. I can not thank you enough for those who have helped, called, emailed, and kept my family in your thoughts and prayers.

Honestly, I am scared shitless right now, to put it bluntly. My husband and I live a very simple and cheap life, cutting out things like cable, water softeners, house phones and yeah, we buy clothing at goodwill on a regular basis. This is ok for us and it is what we have to do as parents to make ends meet. But I have now taken on caring for another family of four whom have nothing. No clothing, no food, no beds...nothing. I feel helpless. I can not just go buy them the things they need, I don't even know how I am going to feed this many people. I'm pissed my Mother was released from the hospital due to lack of insurance and I need to get her back to a doctor. Really, I am not trying to drop a sob story on your lap, I am beyond scared.

Also, I will be closing down my shops for a little bit and putting my time into making things as comfortable as possible for my mom, while keeping these kids smiling and distracted. I am the only one able to take care of everyone right now so that is my number one priority. Orders that I have not yet sent will be shipped a couple days behind schedule, but I will have them out to you by Friday at the latest. Thank you so much for your understanding.

I will try to keep everyone posted on any changes and my phone will be on me at all times. I will be updating via my Twitter stream also ( . If I can not get back to you immediately, I apologize, but please know every act and every word of kindness helps more than I can put into words.

♥ *Updated to add: It has been determined the fire started due to faulty/over heated wires behind the clothing dryer. I will never run a load of laundry before I go to bed ever, ever again.

♥ *Updated to add: Thank you SO much for those still contacting me aboutwanting to help. My family is back on their feet and in a new home now. Again, thank you so so so much to everyone.

Why are my bewbs on Twitter?!

October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is a very serious, very real problem. I don't need to tell you that, as most of us have been touched in some way by this cancer.

My Grandmother fought breast cancer and won. However, not without a very intimate battle wound. Even though she lost one of her breasts, she is still and forever will be, one of the strongest people I know. To her, losing only a breast, meant she round house kicked breast cancer right in it's ugly face. But for many, they are not so lucky. I have been reading story after story of loved ones lost. One in particular touched me and informed me. Through UberDorkGirlie's blog I was informed of BoobieThon.

People everywhere are posting pictures of their breasts to bring attention to the cause. Personally, I have been wanting to post pictures of my breasts since first hearing of BoobieThon, but knowing there was no way I'd be able to do it anonymously, I've held back. I'm covered in chest shouts for attention...

Then I think of all off the women, my grandmother included, who need attention brought to this cause. I think of myself and my daughter (and son!) who merely through genetics, may one day battle this disease. All of a sudden being anonymous is no longer an issue.! So, this proud Mommy, Daughter, Sister and Friend has decided to take and post a picture of her chest...Now bring on the attention! ♥

For more information please visit
The Official BoobieWed Page
The Official Boobiethon Page

You can also follow these great people on Twitter! @boobiewed, @shimmer418, @honey_is_evil and @boobiethon.

Please get involved anyway you can. Through pictures, donations or simply passing the word along.

Where have I been?

Whew! We are already a week into September and updating this blog is WAY over due...

What have I been up to? Well, the kids are back in school. My son started kindergarten so I have the house to myself for eight hours! This has turned into me starting too many projects and neglecting to finish them.

I have started listing many seasonal items in my Etsy and Artfire shops, along with new scents. My entire candle line is also being re worked to include seasonal and limited edition scents and colors. Thank you SO much for you patience as I have been slowly updating my shops. I have many new soaps to introduce, including super fun kids designs and Bubble Buddies are coming back!

A couple months ago I decided to branch out and I created a new brand, Hemp Bath. I wanted to try something completely different and fresh. Hemp Bath has taken off with flying colors and I couldn't be more thrilled. Hemp Bath has a separate blog for over at You can purchase from both brands exclusively in my Artfire shop.

So there is my little update! I hope everyone had an awesome summer! ♥Kylee

ArtFire vs Etsy. Etsy vs. ArtFire.

After my last post and after reading this article, I have had many conversations and even some debates, with fellow shop owners over which is "better", Etsy or Artfire.

Personally, I love both! Yes, this IS possible. Both of these lively online markets places have what I feel is most important: A supportive and friendly community.

Another thing it comes down really, is what YOU feel is most important. While Etsy has listing fees and a much larger community, ArtFire has no listing fees, but a smaller community. While ArtFire gives you the option to customize your shop to your website, Etsy has a feeling of unity within the shops. Etsy has been around longer and has many "kinks" worked out, while Artfire is relatively new and is still under development. I could go on and on...

Both of these marketplaces have something in common. One very vital aspect that I think is most times over looked, YOU are in charge. Both Artfire AND Etsy embrace your ability to create, grow and communicate with society through your creations. After all, isn't that what it's all about anyway?

I think I simply feel torn about The Etsy Wars article. I owe a huge chunk of my success to Etsy. My sales continue to grow there and I continue to meet such wonderful people, even though I now link my website to ArtFire. And even though my site links to ArtFire, my ArtFire links back to my Etsy. With the rise in shipping and supply costs, my Etsy fees are a bigger blow to pay, but I just don't make the sales I need, yet, on ArtFire. Does this mean when (and if) ArtFire becomes huge I will leave Etsy? Absolutely not.

We just need to remember, it's all about supporting EACH OTHER, and not losing ourselves in argueing about the marketplace. ♥ Without US there would be no Etsy OR ArtFire.

Monday Mini Feature:

If you visited this weekend, you may have noticed a big change. A new ArtFire online shop!

Why did I make the switch from Etsy to ArtFire?

Firstly, my Etsy Shop is still up and running! I love Etsy and I have met some of the most wonderful people there. Etsy will always have a special place in my heart. ♥ ArtFire respects this and they encourage you link to your Etsy shop if you'd like! (And your website, blog, twitter, flickr, etc...)

I opened an ArtFire shop because I instantly fell in love with the customizations available. You can add your own html coding to your shop, adjust shop colors and banner size! The customizations alone are so worth it, to me, because my ArtFire shop now matches my website so well.

Another great feature is Rapid Cart. Your customers no longer have to register for an account to purchase from you! I have been able to beautifully link my ArtFire shop within my website for seamless transactions. I had my first sale this weekend (yay!) and was actually told the checkout system is " Wonderfully uncomplicated ".

Could it get any better? Yup! No listing OR selling fee! Yeah, seriously! So you can re list items daily for more exposure without racking up a daily fee. *swoon*

Give a little look. A basic account is totally free with a verified account being only $12.00 a month! Since my Etsy listing/selling fees have been well over $12.00, I thought why not give it a try? That's how the love affair began...
Give a look

As a way to say "Thanks!" for giving my new ArtFire shop a try, I am offering 15% off ALL items for the entire month. It's time for a Christmas in July Sale, don't you think? Combine that with newly reduced shipping rates, and I'd say it's time to shop!

New Sweet Peach & Berries

I really enjoy making detailed soaps. I enjoy planning color schemes and matching fragrances. Thinking it might be nice to make a more "simple" soap, I made a delicious bar in one of my best selling scents, Peach and Sweet Berries. Previously this scent was only offered in my Hello Kitty Soap and my new Pony Soap. Turns out some people liked just keeping their soaps around to sniff them and not use them because "They just look so cuuute!" *wink* So, I wanted to make a pretty bar that was simple, to encourage guilt free use.

Let me officially introduce you to my newest Peach & Sweet Berries Soap!

This is a beautiful peach and shimmery pink soap and it smells AMAZING! Super creamy and bubbly, this soap was blended to have extra lather.

Naturally crushed Shea Butter has been added to produce this creamy soap. Shea butter produces a luxurious lather, which provides moisture as it softens. Approximately 3.5 ounces each

I just might have to do a few more sets of soaps like this...maybe in my yummy Cupcake scent....or seductive Satin Sheets scents... *Eep* I love getting excited about my work. ♥♥♥

Any scents you'd love to see? Let me know and you will be sure to see them soon!

Monday Mini-Feature: Pretty Hair Clippies

I love hair accessories! About two years ago I got completely obsessed with hair bows and clippies. My daughter then, just beginning kindergarten, began her collection of bows and clips that, to this day, has become insanely large and still increasing in size! There is just something undoubtedly adorable about little girls with cute accessories.

I found Pretty Hair Clippies through Twitter and entered a giveaway Pretty Hair Clippies was sponsoring. I won! Yay! I received a beautiful set of hair clips for my daughter and I to wear together.

While visiting this vibrant shop on Etsy, you will find unique product descriptions, stories and ideas. Party Favors and Mom/Daughter sets (which I completely LOVE!) to name a few.

Save some extra cash skipping your daughter's next hair cut and why not pull back her bangs with some cute clips? I am trying to grow out Starla's bangs (and my own!) and we'd probably go crazy if not for these hair clips!

You can also find Pretty Hair Clippies on Twitter! FigMom is wonderful to chat with ♥♥♥

Time to get back to work. ♥ No worries, my long winded, picture heavy posts will be back on track this week! ♥♥♥

Monday Mini-Feature: Pluto's Gift Shop

Color! The days are starting to warm up (Yay!) and get longer (Double yay!) and it only seems fitting to bring out our COLOR! I am starting to notice everything from pastel Capri's to vibrant sandals to neon tub tops. Winter and Fall muted tones are gone!!

This time of year I love going clothing shopping, however, in order to stretch the family dollar and support handmade ( A BIG theme in this house) what better way to brighten up an old outfit than with new jewelry!

While browsing Twitter, I came across another great Etsy shop, Pluto's Gift Shop. Simple, yet vibrant bracelets, earrings, brooches and necklaces at amazing prices.

Monday Mini-Feature: Toddler Virtue Tees

This is my son, Trent wearing his brand new "Tolerance" Toddler Virtue Tee that I won through the Girl Indie blog! Yay!

I absolutely LOVE the idea behind these shirts for kids. They make a wonderful statement with phrases about courage, tolerance, gratitude, kindness and patience. All things we could use more of in today's hectic world. Not only are the shirts adorable, but the colors are vibrant and they are very well made. And soft! Trent could not stop pointing out how "softy" his new shirt was.

Thanks again to Monika for the great "softy" Toddler Virtue Tee. Be sure to check out and get one for the little love(s) of your life. There's even an adult sized "Gratitude" shirt, for you! ♥ As if it couldn't get any better, the back of the shirt says "Pass It On". How clever is that?

Monday Mini-Feature: Fruit Fly Pie

While searching Etsy for Mother's Day gifts this weekend, I came across the beautiful ceramics of Fruit Fly Pie. I. Fell. In. Love. ♥ Wendy, of Fruit Fly Pie, has some of the most precious retro ceramics I have ever seen. ALL made from scratch and hand painted. *swoon*

Not only are her ceramics (including soap dishes, planters, trinket boxes, cookie jars and MORE!) the definition of pretty, but her customer service is stellar! While browsing her shop I came across a pink swan planter I had to have. I sent a convo to see if she could hold it for me until pay day. She contacted me and put the item on hold in under an hour! Yay!

Soy Tart Bars Are Back!

After many inquires, I'm excited to bring back Soy Tart Bars to my Etsy Shop! I also did a mini photo shoot and got some great product images this weekend...I'm loving these cloudy days. ♥

What are Soy Tart Bars?

♥Soy Tart Bars are highly scented wax that you put in a tart burner/melter to scent the room. Its sort of like a candle but without the wick or flame, you just heat it and melt it. They usually smell stronger than candles, too.

My highly scented wax bars break apart into six tarts, try mixing scents to create your own unique fragrance! •Each cube releases scent for 5-10 hours...That's up to 60 hours of lush fragrance per pack!

♥ Soy wax is an all-natural, renewable resource that is obtained from the Soybean, plant based and burns cleaner, is better for the environment and is easier to clean up. Using soy wax helps to support America's Farmers!

Monday Mini-Feature: Zygomatics

I. Love. Kawaii. Kawaii is the Japanese word for cute. What better way to start the work week than with a giant, healthy dose of cute, to chase away those Monday blues?

I stumbled upon Zygomatics while browsing Twitter. I completely fell in love with Chloe's beautiful and bright creations the second I saw her Etsy Shop. Bold colors, many textures and perfect pictures, the Zygomatics shop is very well put together, being professional and playful at the same time. Very kawaii!

Want to know more about Chloe and the beautiful things she makes?? Be sure to check out:
