Help Heal McKennlie

Meet McKennlie.  She is nothing short of your every day ordinary 8 year old kid who is full of energy and a love for life (and lime green;)  McKennlie was recently in a tragic ATV accident while camping with her family.  Although McKennlie was wearing a helmet, she has thrown from the ATV and hit the back of her head on a rock with enough force that it fractured her skull in three places and she has suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).  
McKennlie was put into an induced Coma in hopes to reduce brain swelling.  She has been struggling with her injuries since June 9th and has made vast improvements since then, but she does still have a long road ahead of her.
This story touched my heart. No, I have never met McKennlie, but I do have kids of my own who I love more than anything in this world.  I can only image the heartache of a mommy who worries about the life of her precious child.  Not only is the heart break and worry something that McKennlie's family has to deal with, there is a mountain of medical expenses that keeps growing by the day that they will be required to cover.  
I am starting a fundraiser donating 100% of the proceeds to McKennlie to help cover her medical expenses that will build during her journey.  I will be offering 3 different hair accessories in McKennlies behalf in hopes to help her family just a little bit during their struggle. 
Below are photos of the accessories we will be donating funds from;

McKennlie hair clip $8
Kassidee headband $10
Kinnidie headband $14

Her cousins are also selling these lime green wrist bands for $5 as well.

These items can be purchased in three places.  #1-  On my Facebook page by leaving a comment with your name and paypal address under the picture of the accessory you would like to order, #2, in my etsy shop, or #3- at my house in Tremonton, UT.  Call or text (435)279-7685.

To keep up on McKennlies recovery visit her blog at  Stop by and show her some LOVE!!!  (*There is also a direct link on her blog page to donate)

Lace Romper Pre-order

The long awaited lace rompers are about to be released.  Stock is very limited and they sell out quickly.  I thought I would give all you awesome fans a chance to snag one before they are listed in my etsy shop.  Here are the guidelines of this pre-order.

Ruby Blue lace rompers are the best quality of rompers you will find.  They are made with love from yards and yards of high quality lace, and the shell is made from a cotton/ poly blend that is stretchy and breathable (not like the cheap immitation ones that have a shell made from a thin unstretchable polyester.)  They have a nice double faced satin strap, over exaggerated in size, with a nice heavy drape.  The ends of the halter ribbon are heat sealed to prevent fraying.  Newborn size can also fit your little girls favorite doll:)  (*Romers can be made without the satin strap for $28 by request).

- HOW TO BUY:  Simply leave a comment on the picture in my LACE ROMPER PRE-ORDER almbum on my facebook page with your name and paypal address, along with a note requesting matching hair piece (if you want one).

- Romper is not reserved until payment is sent.  There will be no holds.

- Rompers will be available in 4-6 weeks.

- Five or less available of each size/ design.

- There will be two new sets introduced to the line up.  4th of july themed set, and a royal blue and light pink set.  If you would like to reserve either of these combos, leave a comment with your email address and I will contact you. (At this time, I don't have pics of either set.)

-  Each set has a matching headband/ hair piece which is sold seperately.  If interested in these matching accessories, please leave a note in your request.

-Rompers come in the following sizes;
NEWBORN (0-12m)
SMALL (6 months-2 years)
MEDIUM (2 - 3 years)
LARGE (3-4 years, but can go up to 5 years depending on childs size)

-There will be no refunds on pre-orders so if you have any questions please ask before placing your order.

DiFfErEnT is GOOD :)

That's right.  I get bored with the same ole, same ole.  Don't you?  Here are few changes you are going to see in the up-coming months;

1.  My etsy shop {} will be filled with darling pieces from my BOUTIQUE collection.  "What is your boutique collection" you might ask?  The boutique collection are the pieces that are readily available, ready to ship, and come in many different color options.  These are the pieces you might find in your favorite upscale childrens boutique.  These pieces, on a general note, cost less than any of the other lines.  The are perfect for every day wear.  Not too big, and very comfortable for little ones. 

2.  Items in my shop {Excluding Bridal Pieces} will not be listed unless ready to ship.  Let's face it, 2-3 weeks is just too long to wait for a headband.  This way, you will get your items faster and I won't get swallowed up in orders;)

3.  Vintage Luxe pieces, as well as crowns and romper "sets" will be available on a limited-basis only.  When I am going to release a new one of these pieces, I will first post it to my facebook page {} with a pic, along with the number of pieces available.  Pieces will be first come first serve.  And for the most part, once they're gone, they're gone.  If they don't all sell on facebook, I will list the remaining items in my etsy shop, where they will be first come first serve once again.  This gives me an opportunity to keep my items new and "Fresh, funky and FABULOUS!"  and it gives you the opportunity to purchase original pieces for your little ones photos.

4.  I am going to limit special orders to existing customers only.  This DOES NOT mean that I'm not thrilled to death to have new customers, this just means that I have had the chance to develop relationships with customers that keep my creative juices flowing, so much so, that I really can't take on any more or I will never be able to release anything new.  If you have placed a custom order in the past, then I will be willing to take more of them in the future.  From time to time I will be open to custom orders, and at that time I will post the invite on my facebook page.  I would, of course, love to hear your wants and suggestions for products that you would like to see.  Feel free to post them on my facebook wall, sent them to me in an email {} or convo me through my etsy shop.  Your feedback is very important to me. :)

So lets give these new things a try and see how they work for us, shall we?  As I said before, your feedback is always appreciated:)  Thanks to all you rockin' fans. You guys are the best!!!
