"As long as I can remember, I've always loved making and creating things. Every year we would travel to my Grandparents house for a week, and I would drive both my Mom and Grandma crazy with getting a project started-painting wood projects, tying quilts, going through pattern after pattern finding something that I wanted to do. I didn't really start sewing on my own until my first daughter was born-9 years ago. I remember that my Mom always had sewn matching or coordinating dresses for me and my two sisters, and I wanted to try something. I started with an old pattern that Mom had sewn for me when I was little- and with a lot of trial and error, I finished that little top and kept on sewing.
Now I have two girls that I enjoy sewing for, I love making something and knowing that not every other little girl will be wearing the same dress or outfit! I have tried to take that with me to Bugabookids. I don't mass produce 30 skirts all the same colors/designs; instead I only make a few out of the same fabrics and usually different sizes. So when you buy something from Bugabookids-not every other little girl will be wearing the exact same outfit! My heart goes into each and every skirt, dress, apron, kimono, tooth fairy pillow and flower clip that I make. Sewing makes me happy, and I hope that Bugabookids will make you happy!"
1. All flower clips are $5, with a purchase of a skirt, dress, or kimono.
2. Buy any 2 Bugabookids clothing items (apron, peasant dress, skirt, smock, apron sundress) and receive a flower clip for FREE!

This vintage décor adventure starts with Devenie. She’s known amongst her friends as being the human index for all things crafty and also for making a dollar go a long way. She has many craft shows under her belt and has the hot glue gun scars to prove it.
Shawna and Dev met three years ago. Since that time Salty Bison was formed from a combination of a mutual love for home decor, inspiring conversations and girls weekend adventures! Having a desire to use their talents to add to their family’s incomes they set out to share their salty vintage décor with others!
They have 9 kids among the two of them and two very manly husbands who do all the heavy lifting.
Their main belief when it comes to decorating is to reuse and recycle. Every family deserves a fab looking home, and every recreated piece of décor deserves a good family!
Their items include apothecary jars, paper wreaths, old window art, trays, jewelry holders and a never-ending stream of inspiring transformations!
Their goods are so dang cute! You need to come in and check them out! You really do! You will fall in love with all of it!!!

Finally, I believe that everyone deserves to be treating their skin and their bodies "as if they don't have 100% replacement warranty", so I price my soap well below the market average of even a basic bar of simple handmade soap (which mine is clearly not). Yes, handmade soap is more expensive than some chemically concocted detergent "bath bar" you can purchase at your local supermarket or bath/body shop, but it's significantly less expensive than a face lift and the effects of allergic reactions, skin sensitivities, etc.
My stuff is Vegan, and I use all natural vegetable oils and ingredients, most of which are certified organic. You can safely eat any ingredient that I put into the soap (except the lye), and the net beneficial effects of my products are backed by thousands of years of traditional, multi-cultural healing wisdom. And, dude, really - speaking from years of experience... everyone loves my soap!"
