Well friends... I have been putting off this post for quite awhile, but the time has come. It is with bittersweet feelings that I share with you today that I have decided to close the doors to KYEbags. It's been a lovely 10 year run that I certainly have no regrets about. But it is time to move on, as my life is in a much different place than it was 10 years ago when starting my own business, and my time availability much less these days. I had struggled with this decision for about a year before finally letting go and feeling the peace to move on. It is not a decision I have taken lightly. I will miss the handmade world, the shows and makers I have been so blessed to connect with throughout the years, and most of all I will miss you... my loyal customers! It is YOU that I have to thank for all your support, encouragement and love throughout this decade long journey, and I am so truly thankful for each and everyone of you.
Although it is sad to leave KYEbags behind, there are great things on the horizon which I am excited about. I have recently become an Independent Distributor with Young Living Essential Oils and look forward to sharing my love for oils with friends, family and the world. Essential oils and wellness have been a passion of mine for several years now, and I am happy to be officially sharing my knowledge and the products I love with the those around me. Essential oils have been a great blessing to my family these past 3 years, and I look forward to helping many other families benefit from all that essential oils have to offer.
I also look forward to having more time to focus on my family and home life, something that has been heavy on my heart for quite awhile now. As my family grows and my children get older, new challenges, stages, and needs arise, and my top priority right now and always will be my family. Pearl will already be 5 in April (*sniff*), and this winter we will be starting with homeschooling, something she has been looking so forward to! Owning a home and small property this past year has also proven to be quite time consuming, and I am looking forward to having more time to spend on gardening, homesteading, maybe some small farming and other things I love.
So... all that being said... I hope you will come out to see me for my very last vendor show this coming Friday, November 11th, right here in my hometown. I have posted the event flyer with details below. I help to coordinate this annual shopping event, and I would love to see you come show your support to my local community and fellow business vendors.
Also, all items left in my etsy shop (for the exception of my fall scarves) are currently marked down to 40% off. I will be offering the same discount at the event this Friday. Please help me clear out inventory and create some storage space in my house! I'd love to see all remaining inventory go to loving homes. I do not have an official closing date set for my etsy shop yet, but it will certainly close before January 1st, and quite possibly before, depending on how fast my inventory sells. All updates and closing dates will be posted to the FB page.
