This is Kennedy. She is the 12 year old daughter of one of my oldest friends. Kennedy has created these darling clipboards and customizes each of them. With the help of her mom, a more-than-full-time nurse, she designs the clipboards in accordance with a color scheme or theme of the recipient’s choosing. No two are alike. Because Kennedy is in school and these are custom made, it takes a while. So, Kennedy has offered to make 6 clipboards for the Mother’s Day/Teacher’s Appreciation/Graduation season for Northshore Mama readers. Here is her story:
My name is Kennedy, I am twelve years old. I have started my own designer clipboard business called Fabulous KG. I wanted to tell you how I got started.
I am always searching for ways to earn some extra bucks. Last summer my mom and I went into a specialty shop and I saw the cutest clipboard! I wanted one so bad, but mom told me that we could make one at home. In September of last year I asked my mom if she had any ideas about how I could earn some extra money. She reminded me about the clipboard that we saw in the specialty shop. I made one and brought it to school and sold it right away. My mom brought a picture of it to work and the orders started rolling in. Since September, I have made and sold 88 clipboards with several more in the works. I have also donated a couple to the cancer fundraiser in our town “Relay for Life”.
My long term savings goal for the money I earn from making my clipboards is to save enough money to go to Disney World. My short term savings goal is to go on a shopping trip to Dallas to buy some new clothes for church camp this summer. I also have been able to open my own savings account and have a separate savings to reinvest in Fabulous KG.
Each clipboard is unique. I like to know what colors or chosen theme the client would like and create a clipboard that is different than any other I have made before. I have 2 clipboard styles, one that I attach ribbons to the top (for girls) and the other without (for boys). I personalize each one with either a name or initial. Each clipboard is $18 plus shipping cost of $10. I have added a few pictures of clipboards I have made. The possibilities are endless! I think that I can manage to make six before summer. If you are interested in one of these six, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is what I need to know to get started:
Please allow 4-6 weeks for me to complete your clipboard. Since they are one of a kind, I do not have any made up. I do one step at a time so that it can dry properly before applying the next step. Thank You, Kennedy ~ Fabulous KG
