Red, White and Blue!

Unfortunately, due to the rainy weather, we did not make it to the Waterloo Arts Fest this past weekend.... Total bummer. 

But I did list lots of new items to the etsy shop, including over a dozen new hair accessories in red, white and blue, just in time for July 4th!

All accessories pictured can be ordered as a hair clip or elastic headband in sizes Newborn-Adult. 
All style and size selections can be made checkout. 

Order today to receive by the weekend via First Class mail, or upgrade to Priority Mail in the shipping options for 1-3 day arrival. 

I am only about half way through getting new listings up in the shop... stay tuned for more!
40-50% off sale still going on as well.

Shop HERE.

Have a great week!

Friday updates + a new addition to the shop!

It seems whenever I go to art shows and meet people in person, customers are always asking if I have any 'smaller' bags available. I'm a mama, so personally, it's always been hard for me to understand why someone would want to a carry a purse just big enough to carry their phone, keys, and some cash....When with two toddlers, it can seem like I've got half my house in my bag at times. 

But I do love the idea of and the simplicity that a very small cross body carry offers. Which is why I've decided to add them as a new addition to the shop. At this point in my life, with two small babes to keep me busy, and lots of other exciting changes on the horizon (more details soon!), I am leery of adding more options to the shop and to my work load. But I do think this particular mini bag will be a good addition to the shop, and I am hoping you love the new design as much as I do! 

The mini cross body bag will be available for purchase this weekend at the Waterloo Arts Fest, and in the etsy shop next week. 
Bag dimensions are 9" wide by 7" high and features interior storage pockets and a 45" adjustable strap.

All that being said, there will for the sake of my sanity, be some simplifying happening in the etsy shop. I have always been one who loves to dabble in many things... Often getting bored easily with too much of the same thing. But I am realizing my limits, and that my way of doing things is currently not working out for me and doesn't have me functioning at my best. 

My first step in this process of simplifying is to clear out the old. Many of the older or less popular designs in my etsy shop are currently 40-50% off. Go snag yourself a deal! There are a lot of super cute items on clearance. And as much as it pains me, the rest of the summer will be spent narrowing down which items are most worthwhile for me to continue selling in shop, and ditching which ones just aren't worth my time right now. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. It's a hard move for my creative mind, but will be good for my sanity (and pocketbook) in the future :)

Please help me through this process by weighing in here, by email, FB, whatever platform you prefer. I want to know your favorites, least favorites, preferred prints, styles, etc. Your opinion matters to me and meeting your design needs is what I'm here for after all. 

This post is getting lengthy, so I'll wrap it up. 
Just a reminder that weather permitting, we will be set up at the 2015 Waterloo Arts Fest in Cleveland tomorrow from noon-7pm. For more details, please click HERE

Have a fashionable weekend!

Tomorrow is the last day the shop will be open before we head off on vacation.
 So... I thought I'd throw a little something special your way.
Because it's been awhile since I've offered free shipping, and because extra spending money on vaca is good.

*Applies to domestic shipping only. Good on already made items listed in the etsy shop, no custom order. Valid now through Tuesday, June 2nd at midnight EST.

$20 KYE shorts sale!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as I did! 
The three day weekend was just what I needed. 
Thanks to all those who came out to shop with us at the Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. on Saturday! 
Always lovely to see your faces.

A few things.... 

1. Don't forget that my family and I will be on our way to the beach in a week for a much needed vacation. 
This means that the etsy shop will be closed from Tuesday, June 2-Sunday, June 14th. 
Now is the time to get those orders in!

2. I will NOT be accepting custom order requests starting now through June 30th, as I need time to prepare for my upcoming shows, and again, will be on vacation the beginning of June. 
I will open my custom order cue again in July. Thank you for understanding. 

3. I still have sales going on in the etsy shop through June 1st.
Select items are marked down to 50% off and can be found in the 'CLEARANCE' section.
All KYE shorts/skirts are marked down to $20 for a limited time.

4. Because we will be on vacation, KYEbags will NOT be at the June 6th, Akron Farm and Flea Market. Our apologies to our regulars. We will be at the Market when it resumes again on August 1st. (There is no Akron Market in July, due to the July 4th holiday.)
Please RSVP/share the upcoming markets with your friends here:

5. Our next scheduled show is the Waterloo Arts Fest on Saturday, June 27th from 11am-7pm. 
RSVP and view event details here:

I think that covers everything! Enjoy the rest of your week.
