Why buy from Keep it Personal Gifts?

I have been making and creating most of my life. It first started as a hobby and therapy from my office job. I always wanted to have my own business but had to also be practical to pay the bills. In 2008 just like so many others, I became unemployed. I already had a pretty good side hustle going on. I would sell to friends, Ebay and craft shows. Then one morning I saw in interview on a morning news program about Etsy. I was intrigued! The more I was on the site, the more I feel in love and knew this is where I belonged. I decided to make this my job! Over the years (11) many people have asked me how I grew my Etsy shops so big. I start with a lot of hard work! It was not easy. I worked on average of 60 plus hours a week, weekends and evenings. It grew, which I enjoyed very much!
As we grew, I changed studio locations and added staff. Life changes. I love spending time with my grandchildren and that will never change. Working 60+ hours a week does not work for me anymore. However, I still love to create!!!
I took a break and sold of parts of my business. I have come back with what works for my lifestyle, which is what makes Etsy so wonderful! I feel truly blessed to have both passions in life.
I really want your business, so please let us have the pleasure of making something very special for you or that special person you need the perfect gift for! You will be dealing directly with the owner and designer and maker!
I know there is fierce competition for your business. My business model is to give a great quality product for the best price I can! What sets ours apart? First it is our designs and flexibility with designs. Second, I am very concerned about our planet earth. We do the following to lower our business carbon footprint:

1. All our packaging material on items we ship to our clients is either recycled or made from recycled material, sometimes both. Our packing peanuts are cornstarch mix so they dissolve quickly in the landfills.
2. We reuse packaging whenever possible!
3. I am involved with a group that is trying to help USPS have there boxes made with at least 50% recycled materials.
4. The tissue paper that we use is from recycled materials
5. Our Co2 Laser is one of the top line companies and is made in America! Is has been designed to be very energy efficient.
6. We use Vegan Fabric Materials and not animal products
7. Our UV printer, is a non solvent based printer which has very low VOC’s and when the ink has been cured there is no toxic element
8. We do not use pallet wood for any of our signs, because this is dangerous! We used to use mostly recycled wood, but, as time has gone on, we found that this wood was hard to know what had been put into and on to it. We now use pine products mostly for when wood is needed.
9. Our Studio is lit, heated and cooled high-efficiency units
