I must say, when I learned one of my favorite sellers, Kylie of FabulouslyFierce, was branching out into pet accessories I was so excited! I knew they were going to be kick ass. When she opened up her shop, I was happy to be the one to pop her shops cherry, so to say. I ordered this adorable pink and white skull collar for my baby 'Trouble'. Talk about fast shipping and great quality. I fully advise you all to run out (or to your computer) and visit this gal's shop(s).

HotRod Ho-Down

HeartSizedCrush was lucky enough to be able to set up a booth at the 4th annual HotRod Ho-Down this year in Colorado Springs put on by SouthSide Johnny's. This is an amazing benefit to send care packages for soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afganiston. This hit home for me since my son's father did a 14 month tour in Iraq with the Army. We had a great time at the show. Great food, awesome music, amazing crowd, super hot cars.

Thanks Herbie & Johnny!!

I have a HeartSizedCrush...

It's no secret that I have a HeartSizedCrush on Colleen Duffy of Devil Doll. The first time I popped that CD in that a friend gave to me and the sweet sultry voice of Colleen came on singing the tune St. Christopher, I fell head over heels in love. Her music spoke to me in depths and I could feel it in my bones. Her lyrics are easily relatable, and empowering, and make you want to kick some serious ass.

It came as a complete shock to me when last September I recieved a message on Etsy from Colleen herself. The first time we spoke, I was in complete awe that I was speaking to the Devil Doll herself and felt like a star struck bubbling idiot, lol. She is the most down to earth gal ever and so easy to talk to.

A short time later, Colleen asked if I could make her some Devil-Doll necklaces to add to her merch for shows and online. I know it sounds silly, but I feel like if I did nothing else in life, I was a success, because I had the opportunity to make jewelry for my all time, hands down favorite band ever. In December Devil-Doll made their rounds for a show in Denver. I got to meet her and chat, take pics, gets an autograph- the works. It was an amazing night to say the least.

If you have not yet had the chance to check out the musical stylings of Devil Doll, be sure to check her out at and while you're there- check out the merch section where the Devil-Doll necklace is now available for purchase!!!

Rebelle By Tootsies

I had the pleasure of meeting Roxy, the owner of Rebelle By Tootsies Salon, at one of the Rocky Mountain Roller Girls derby bouts that I vend at. We exchanged information as she was interested in carrying my jewelry at her salon! The first time I stepped inside the shop I was in love! It's the cutest salon ever, pink walls, great photography on the walls and a cute little botique in the back with clothing, bags, & accessories.

Roxy is one of the sweetest people I have ever met, and I am so excited that you can now get hooked up with a HeartSizedCrush piece after getting a 5 star rated treatment at the salon!

A friend and I also attented a fashion show they were putting on at the end of July. This was my first fashion show experience, and I had SO much fun! It was an awesome time, I will definately be going to every fashion show these girls put on!

Thanks Roxy!!!
