COVERART / LISTEN

Spring has sprung! My shop is open and flowing. I am slow and going, but moving! Some changes – ship time will be a little slower, please understand I take a lot of time on each package and personalize every one. This isn’t an overnight thing, especially with some welcome volume!

Oilspiration! Alllll day! . . . . . . #essentialoils #rollon #gemstones #botanicals #plantmedicine

Less green fragrances, nothing new for this season in that department, just old favorites people love. This collection is aimed at people who are sensitive to chemicals and also essential oils. With that, I have designed SO MANY essential oil aromatherapy blends and am releasing them little by little to share with you.

Fresh off my sister’s wedding, spring is folding through and summer will be here soon enough. I listed some things over the weekend and some items just flew out like these orgone on rosary gemstone chains. Good thing I stopped into a quaint little bead shop in Richmond VA on my travels to grab more and I will release those soon. But there are awesome restocks of various new spins on soaps for the season all with a crystal inside in new scents and old formulations you have loved. Thank you to my customers for  your beautiful reviews! That does a lot of the talking, just like your smile and skin! Love to you! Beth  www.bethkaya.etsy.com UPDATE

Lots of events, SOUPERGROOVE music festival was a success! We loved our dream team staff, mineral guru Conni from @Autumsunoriginals and our dear friend Shanna – Homesteading Extraordinare in her own right! We had a blast sharing love for crystal energy with the festival goers!

We filled out monthly residency at the Murray Grove Renewal and Retreat Center in loving company as well. The Random Test Reggae Band played their Sunday Cafe house and were so full of energy and incredible spirit. Everyone danced and my four year old walked right up and highfived them and told them they “made his heart happy”! You HAVE to come to these cafe houses! Check Murray Grove out on facebook for their flier. I also have been moonlighting with their marketing team and word on the street is we might do a bingo night when the chill gets a little thicker!

I have had to refill this box each night. Made my sweet husband go shopping at the crib because I sold a lot of my most special pieces and I gotta keep it fresh. Thank you @jdrewsilvers for making such lovely homes for all of my special earth gifts and thank you #soupergroove for being such mineral lovers!! Especially like usual the kids! Kids are so sensitive to Crystal energy! Give a kid you love a crystal! See what happens! #crystals #minerals #flowerchild #festivallife #crystalinfused

Also just finished up Open Minded Smoke and Specialty in Toms River ‘s 4th anual customer appreciation day. I have had the pleasure of evolving and vending this event each year – I left in tears literally overwhelmed by the growth and beauty of the day. Jennifer, Fran and Melissa over there are incredible people and they make that spot a hub for love and kindness in this community. If you are on the Jersey Shore, it’s an attraction you must visit. Tons of loving things in there to intruige and nourish the spirit.

✨Packing - like all these Rolling Stones - another show tomorrow in Toms River NJ at Open Minded - Please come kick it! Fun stuff going down all day - food , music, cool kids 💎 I'm having a gem show and doing free henna tats! Sending you all tons of love and Caturday night fevah!! #birthdaygirl #artist #gemstones #minerals #polishedgems #tumbledgemstones #quartz #carnelian #calcite #crystalhealing #crystalinfused #bybethkaya

Etsy is more then where I host the goods I am hustling – its a social media platform with a LOT of flair. Part of that flair is the opportunity to host or curate little exhibits if you will – called “treasuries” that feature etsy products in a theme. Whether they are just wishlists or items in the key of purple – they are little collections of handmade goodies means to delight and awe almost like a museum showcase would! I find myself getting lost in the art of treasury making myself – so here are a few of my recent treasuries to help you out for the holidays!

Enjoy!

Good chilly and blustery afternoon friends and loves – I have been plugging away at a very special digital showcase for you! I decided not to do an annual trunk show this year – BKDC has been growing so much and I didn’t want the stress of something I was doing for just my work.

During a goal setting exercise I noticed a repeated theme, I really really was jazzed about working with other unique artists. So I decided to host a little online pop shop and promotion ring! This flier/ mini – site (which is still being added to!) will tell you all about the promotional deals I am offering for November and some of my peers too! We are all makers with this line of work as our primary source of income. Please take a look through the shops by clicking on their images. In the checkout make sure you let them know you found them through BethKaya’s flier! If you are an artist and would like to share a promotion with us email BethKaya@gmail.com.

Enjoy browsing! Make sure you pay attention to each shops timeline for manufacturing – our little fingers need some time to create your special pieces for the holidays!

On A Budget

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest


“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”

— Alexander McQueen

I decided to do a challenge, find a few pieces to add a little life into a Spring wardrobe, each item being under $50.00. I used only 6 stores: Old Navy, H&M, Gap, Kohls, Target, Forever 21 and American Apparel for this task. These are my picks for a mom, career lady or just the every day fashionable woman on a budget. Enjoy!
