Boutique Karma

Tara owns "Boutique Karma".

She sells a smattering of coasters, boo boo packs, and crayon roll-ups.  Her shop is mainly stocked with aromatherapy eye pillows; coffee cuffs; and mug huggers.

The aromatherapy eye pillows are filled with lentil beans, flaxseed, and lavendar.  These wonders are perfect for headaches or just to relax.  They can be placed (an hour minimum) in the freezer or microwaved for a hot compress.  With summer coming, how can you NOT get one to cool off at night???

Tara's coffee cuffs are a great way to go a little green when you're using a disposable cup.  No more paper/cardboard sleeves!  Reduce your carbon footprint with these cuffs!  Small enough to keep in your purse, car, or even pocket and always have one handy. 

The mugs huggers are just a FUN way to dress up a boring mug!  Layered with insulated batting, they help to keep your drink warmer, a little longer, and lets you hold your mug a little more comfortably without fear of burning your hands.

20% of all sales are donated to "Doctors Without Borders With Medicins Sans Frontiers Canada" for the relief of Haiti.

You're guaranteed to get some great gifts, or treat yourself, in this shop!  Not only THAT but your purchase benefits a wonderful charity as well!!!  So, why are you still here???  Hop on over and START shopping!

Kitties, Kitties, and More Kitties!!!

I wanted to share with you my newest kitties that I've listed in the past week or so.  I've had a lot of fun creating them and playing with all of the fabrics.

All my kitties need good homes and are eagerly waiting to be shipped!

Want a kitty in your own colors?  Contact me...turnaround time is (usually) no longer than 2-3 days for your kitty to ship.  I try to even do it sooner but ask for that amount of time, in case, I have other custom orders already booked.

You can find them (and other's that I've already showcased) in my shops:  Artfire, Etsy, and ECrater.  (Though my eCrater is slowly coming along...460+ items in my Artfire shop...90+ in my Etsy shop).

I ALWAYS offer FREE shipping...every day...on everything in my shops!
