I found this cute shop the other day while browsing around Etsy. I know it is becoming another addiction of mine =D. I absolutely fell in love with her items especially the onesie with a tie. The main thing that caught my attention was the name of the store : Auntie Bubbles. It made me think back to when I was younger sitting on my grandmother's floor playing with the scraps of fabric as she sewed.

Here is a small glimpse at what Auntie Bubbles has to offer in her store:

Size: 5T
This is the item that I received. It is size 3-6 months. It is extremely soft and ADORABLE! When I saw this onesie I automatically thought of a baby at my church. We have VBS which stands for Vacation Bible School and this year's theme was High Seas. I think this onesie would've been cute on him with the little anchors. The tag is sewn it the back so that it will not irritate your little one's precious neck. It came to me wrapped in tulle with a ribbon along with the washing instructions.

Name: Kathleen (aka: Auntie Bubbles) My nieces gave me this nickname after I had a serious case of the hiccups. I guess it just stuck!

Tell us a little about yourself, the seller behind the store./ Why did you decide to open a shop? What does your shop mean to you?

I’ve always had an idea of what type of clothing I was looking for, but couldn’t always find exactly what I had in my mind. That’s when I purchased a sewing machine and started making my own clothing. When my sister started having little girls, I started sewing for them. I had so much fun experimenting with fun, silly, loud fabrics…. Stuff I couldn’t get away with, but a three year old could! My sister along with my friends with children always told me that I should start selling my creations. It took me a while to work up the courage, but once I started my etsy shop I can’t stop thinking that I should have done this earlier!

I’ve been working since I was 12 years old. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. My first business attempt was selling rocks door to door in my neighborhood. I would put them on one of my mom’s cookie sheets and then canvas the neighborhood for customers! When that didn’t work out, I started a babysitting company. Eventually, I completed my studies in college and joined Corporate America.

My identity has always been strongly connected to my job title “I’m Kathleen, the babysitter”, ‘I’m Kathleen the Marketing Manager”. “I’m Kathleen the Regional Advertising Executive”. When the corporation that I was working for dissolved as a result of the economy, I was a lost…. Who is “Kathleen” now? “Kathleen the unemployed” simply would not do. I decided to just focus Kathleen the daughter, friend, sister and aunt… rolls that were sometimes left behind while I fought to get the next raise, promotion, award, etc. Now I get to spend a bunch of time with my darling nieces and nephews doing what I love the most, spoiling them rotten!

My etsy shop means the world to me! I’m thoroughly enjoying doing “my own thing”. I love being my own boss and using my creative side.

What's your store about? What do you typically sell or sell the most?

All of my designs are handmade with lots of love. It is important that all of my creations are machine washable and playground approved. I want to always make affordable clothing for kids to wear and not worry about getting it dirty. I make skirts, dresses and super fun separates. My niece, Alexandra, likes to call the separates her cha-cha diva outfits! I also have Ts with Ties for boys and onsies with ties for the itty bitty babies. The hottest items all depend on the season and where the shoppers are located. Since it’s always sunny in San Diego, I have to remind myself to make clothes for autumn and winter!

Random Questions, pick one or as many as you like and tell why.

Crayons or Color Pencils—Crayons!! I love mixing the colors together. I also love the feeling of smooth crayon wax on paper… oh and the smell! There’s nothing like the smell of a brand new box of crayons!

Anchovies or Pepperoni— Neither. I love a pizza with fresh mozzarella, roasted veggies and basil. Yummmmmy!

Pink or Blue-- Both! AND green, yellow, purple, chocolate brown, orange… etc

Cherries or Blueberries— Blueberries! I love blueberry jam, blueberry pie, blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry smoothies, blueberries in yogurt… blueberries in everything!

Flip Flops or Sneakers— I am officially a flip flop girl! Ever since I moved to Southern California my toes have wanted to be free!

So now since we seen what Auntie Bubbles has for cute little Boogers to wear now lets teach them where to stick there boogies!

I have a story that I would like to share with you all. Close your eyes and imagine with me.

"Imagine that your riding down the road to the grocery store with your little Booger...ummm I mean child. He is all fussy and angry and then the next thing you know he is quiet almost too quite. So you decide that maybe he just fell asleep. So you get to the grocery store and you go to get him out of his seat and you notice boogies everywhere. On the window, on his clothes, and even on your brand new leather seats. When you thought he was asleep he was actually playing with his boogies and making boogie masterpieces. You reach to get a baby wipe and then realize that you left your diaper bag and other important items at the house. So that means no diapers, and no change of clothing." This is how you day would be without Boogie Wipes.

Now would you like to see how your day with Boogie Wipes would be?

"While your driving down the road you hand your child a Boogie Wipe and mention that if he puts his boogies in there then he will be a good little boy and who knows he may even get a surprise sometime soon. When you get to the store he shows you all his new found boogies and you show him how to throw it in the trash can. Then you go about your business. Boogie Wipes = No Mess!"

For a limited time only if you purchase 3 Boogie Wipes you can send in the UPCs and receive a free Boogs:

Everytime your little Booger sees this he can remember to put his boogies in Boogie Wipes! Boogie Wipes are made with saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments. Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Magic Menthol and Simply Unscented. Recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to a dry tissue. They even have adult wipes too!


So the Boogie Mom's are letting me give my readers (2) packs of 30-count wipes to one extremely lucky WINNER! You can choose from any of the flavors above!
