Hi. My name is Christina Keller. My husband and I have always had a rule that when it comes to gift giving, it can be as pretty as you want but it needs to be practical and useable. When I started knitting and crocheting, it was just because I enjoyed it. But when I started giving my scrubbies as gifts, one after another said “These are awesome! You should sell these!” At the time I was only making the dish scrubbies. Then I had a request for facial (both exfoliating and non-exfoliating). After that came the bar soap scrubby (for bar soap) and the liquid body soap scrubby (which works amazing with liquid body soap). I made a scrubby for horses too! The next thing I know I am selling them. My newest additions: wash cloths, hand towels, blankets and back scrubbers.
I originally started my business because my of dream to own my own draft horses and a barn. Sometimes dreams are so big, they take a lot of time to happen. That's ok. I have the time.
Our family has gotten involved in something that is bigger than us. Serving the wonderful community that we live in. We have joined our Volunteer Fire Department. The expenses that a Volunteer Fire Department has to operate are not cheap. A set of bunker gear can cost $3-5,000 per set, and then they have to replace them every 10 years. A special washer/dryer set for bunker gear can cost $10,000. An exhaust system that removes the carcinogens that cause cancer = $60,000+ depending on your set up.
That is why I have decided that while I am waiting to achieve my dream of draft horses and a barn, to help a cause greater than my wants when possible. Make sure to check the events page to see what I have going.
