Don't Miss This... last clue

I thought I would share a few of my favorite K & L jewelry with you. Of course I like them all, but there are some that I like the most. One thing that I love about our jewelry is that we make jewelry that is easy to wear, durable and goes with almost anything. Mason is constantly tugging at my necklaces and they make it through. This is one of my most favorites, that is why it is pictures first. The monogram necklace. Mine has a creme pearl (my personal favorite) that is hand wrapped. So classic, but still a conversation starter, I get compliments all of the time on it....
Oprah "gives big" and we "love big." Such a great reminder that we all need a little loving and when we give love to other people, we should do it in a BIG way! I also like that the letters are not blackened, it makes for a different look. What a statement!
I "LOVE" these big fresh water pearls. Also, the ear rings are a must in my wardrobe almost every day. They go with anything and of course mine are cream.
I love this double strand that Kiki whipped up. I cannot wait until I can have some more little charms on mine, maybe one day!

*cLuE to the {give-a-way}

The ladies who created this blog are great blogging sitstas...

So, did you get it? If not, we will tell you tomorrow night with our LATE night post that will be posted around MIDNIGHT! WoW, so if you are pulling a late night blogging, come back over to see who is having a fabulous week long feature and give-a-way for Kiki & Lele! You will never believe it, we almost could not believe it either!!!!

Super FUN Weekend

Kiki and Lele set up as vendors at the POMC sale here in Murfreesboro (see below if you missed the details). We had such a great time. We really enjoy getting out into the public and talking about our product. Most of our business is done on-line, so it is a REAL treat when we can meet our customers face-to-face. Kacey and I standing at our table. Do you like the new banner? Kacey found someone to make it on ETSY- oh, how we do love ETSY!
One of the favorites of the weekend was the "Mommy Tag" as always.
Nestie Nestor bracelets were a hit as well. They are so stinking cute with almost anything. The cord allows you to dress down and the pearls and the hand-wrapping allow you to dress up a bit... Options, options.....
Knowledge is Power. I really love this one, if Mason was in school this little baby would have been a great present for the first day... Simple and clean- what teacher would not love it?
We love bracelet's they are chunky and fun- a great addition to any wardrobe.

We had a great time this weekend and we hope that you did too!

*secret* a little birdie told me that {Kiki & Lele} is going to be featured in the most fabulous give-a-way starting next weekend..... Do you really want to know? Hint- this particular blog has some delish recipes... Let us know what your guess is....

{My Heart}

This is one of the beautiful faces in my family that has my {heart}. My sweet Lincoln. When I look at this picture I can't help but smile from ear to ear. I am in the middle of planning Lincoln & Ruby Jane's 1st birthday. I can't believe they will be ONE in just a few weeks. When I came across this picture I just had to share. I hope it brought a smile to your face too!
Need another reason to smile? Well here you go...Leslee and I have been busy Mama Birds preparing for our event on Saturday. We have new goodies to show you in tomorrow's post. Woohoo!

And we have a winner....

I entered a blog give-a-way a few weeks ago and won! Yay for me, but not just any YAY- a BIG YAY! You can go to and check out her blog and that will lead you to her ETSY shop. She is a new ETSY shop owner, so make sure you stop in and tell her that you love her work! There is no doubt in my mind that she will be your new favorite person for hand made cards... This one is my favorites because she kind of went off of the K&L theme to design it. So stinking cute with the sweet birdies and the nest....
Man- o- man, did I tell you that she put so much detail into these cards????
Here is the spread, all 6 cards. I almost do not even want to use them... I am telling you- if you get one of these babies in the mail from me- you know you are special...

Did I get your attention??? Undivided attention??? Well....

Kiki & Lele will be a vendor at a local children's consignment sale this weekend! We have done this sale before and loved it. The local chapter of the "Parents of Multiples Club" {POMC} is hosting this sale. The club is a non-profit support organization for parents of twins, triplets & quads. This sale is a major fundraiser for the POMC. They are such nice women and we feel honored that they will let us come and share our designs with the local public. Thanks Ladies of the POMC!

So, if you live in Murfreesboro or one of the surrounding communities, come on out and see what we have been up to this weekend at the POMC consignment sale. Doors open at 8 a.m. through - 11:45 a.m and there will be a Half Price session from Noon to­ 1 p.m.

Ooh, I will bet you would like to know where this is taking place??? It will be held at the Middle Tennessee Christian School (MTCS) on Memorial blvd.

Any further questions, just ask....

Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

That is so important don't you think? At Kiki & Lele we believe in being confident and speaking out about things that we believe in. And why not look fabulous while you do it? You can with our simple & classy cuff bracelet. The bracelet is sterling silver and is adorned with a freshwater pearl. We can stamp anything you would like on this lovely piece. Choose a daily reminder that you need, a quote to live by or verse, children's names or birthdays, etc. The options are limitless!

These are two cuffs that we did most recently. The bracelet on top is for our Charmed, I'm Sure giveaway winner Lillyella. She wanted us to stamp "HAPPINESS IS A MORAL OBLIGATION."
{So, so true!} Preach it sista!

Hoop- there it is.....

We have a new fav-o-rite for the fall- Hoops! We are in love with them. Kacey and I have been talking for a while on what we are gonna do about our hoop obsession.... Well this is just the start of many more designs. Of course the first one has pearls, because we love pearls. Each hoop measures about 1 1/2 inches and has three pearls on it. In all they measure about 2 inches in length from the tip of the hooks. The middle pearls are larger than the outside pearls, very balanced...The hooks are sterling for you sensitive gals...
$ 20.oo

But of course I had to top off my post with a little picture of Mason. Here he is being my stroller driver in the mall. I wish he could push his mommy.... Ha, that would be way too funny! He made car noises all around the mall while pushing it and you would have thought that I was the paparazzi and he was a famous baby... I was running into people just so I could get a good shot of him driving his stroller....

Lately I have been inspired by {color}. It's everywhere and I'm soaking it all in. I'm inspired by so many things, but lately color has been the main focus of inspiration along with pattern & texture. I can't wait for Fall and to cozy up with some rich jewel tones...and of course my little leopard flats. Oh how I've missed them.... Here are some pictures of things that inspire me. I've also posted a sneak peak of something I've been working on. It incorporates all of the above: Color, Texture & Pattern.

A little peak at one of the pieces I have been working on. I hope this little beauty gets to jump off the page and have a little spotlight on her....

So, what inspires you?

What's your plan?

Thought for the day:

"Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you're ready or not, to put this plan into action." Napoleon Hill

If you have a dream, stop dreaming about it and do it... You will never reach the finish line waiting on the race to start. Kacey and I had a dream that started as a conversation that led to some phone calls that led to ordering business cards and buying supplies and booking events.... and so on... and so on.... It is called the "snowball effect" you start small and it gets bigger and bigger and bigger... Hopefully one day we will be famous designers....

What are your dreams? Please share with us...

All About {Kiki}

My partner in crime {Leslee} decided that we all needed to get to know eachother a little bit better, here in this wonderful land we call the blog-o-sphere. So...I promised to oblige and let you in on a few little secrets about moi.

  • I am a 29 year old SAHM with my 30th birthday quickly approaching. I'm super excited about it because I LoVe birthdays!
  • I get obsessive with food. If I find something new that I like, I can literally eat it every day. Right now, its bean quesadillas with mango salsa. Mmmmm. Now I'm hungry.
  • I'm banned from watching CSI, Law & Order, or the news. Otherwise I get a little more neurotic than I already am.
  • I type how I talk so I can tend to ramble.
  • I always have music on in the house & I love to dance. I love all kinds of music.
  • I can burst out singing at any random time and not even realize I am doing it. Of course, this is NOT in public, only in the comfort of my own home. At least I don't think so...
  • I have an entire section on my refrigerator dedicated to my list making. I'm not telling you how many I have.
  • My family is my main priority all day every day. I love it and I don't think there is any job as important as that. However, I'm trying to make an effort to take time for myself and do other things that interest me as well.

OK, it usually takes a good long time for my closest friends to even figure all of the above stuff out, so that in itself is an accomplishment. Hopefully, you don't think I'm too crazy & you enjoyed finding out a few things about me. If you're really brave, you can find out more about me here. What are some fun, quirky things that we don't know about you? We'd love to hear!

We love a set.

Publish PostThis necklace was made on a whim. We had the chain lying around and it just really needed some love. So, we gave it some pearl love. It goes great with the pearl earrings that we have already. If you love the necklace, you better snatch it up soon, this chain is the only one we have. The pearls on the necklace are large and the ear rings have smaller pearls.

Chain is 20 inches (can be made cut down)
Pearl Necklace $22

* earrings sold separately

All about {Lele}

I thought I might share some things about myself. I am a 26 year old part-time SAHM. I have a wonderful husband and son. Kacey and I got a wild hair about 10 months ago to start a business... and here we are, learning and laughing together.

Some facts about Lele a.k.a Leslee

  • I share my birthday with: Pat Benetar, Nora Roberts, Rod Stewart, George Foreman, Frank Sinatra Jr.
  • I am obsessed with string cheese. I eat like 3 a day.
  • I have double jointed thumbs.
  • I am obsessed with blogging.
  • I just discovered my love for gardens and I really want to start one in the spring.
  • I have always {secretly} wanted to be famous.
  • I love candles.
  • I talk myself through things - out loud. Some might call that "talking to yourself."
  • I have been working harder at planing things {life in general} out. I feel so much more organized and on top of it.
There you go, I hope you feel just that much more closer to me. Yeah, I am a little quirky, but I am also fun and silly with a little kick... If you want to know more, just go HERE and see what I am up to...
