Next month I'll be attending the SNAP! conference where creativity is at your fingertips. In addition to sponsoring, Kustom Kissers will also be vendor in the Queen Bee Market. I've been brainstorming table set-ups and lip balm designs which got me thinking - If two heads are better than one, all my social media friends' heads combined must be brilliant! So, you want to help?
I'd like to have a wide variety of lip balm designs available for purchase at the Queen Bee Market, and I want YOU to design them! You don't have to be a professional designer. You don't have to attend SNAP! either. All you have to do is come up with an orginal graphic sized 500 x 500 pixels at 300 dpi. It can include a photo, text, illustration, etc. I want each design to be as unique as you are, so that's all the direction I'm providing.
Did I mention you could get paid? If your lip balm design is chosen to be produced and for sale, I'll give you a cut! Lip balms, which are organic by the way, will be priced at $4.00 per tube. Designers get $1.00 of every lip balm sold with their design on it. Cash in your pocket (via PayPal). Easy peasy.
All designs must be emailed to Heather@KustomKissers.com by April 1, 2013, and that's no joke. Kustom Kissers reserves the right to reject any designs. Have questions? Send them my way!
I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I had a box of lip balm stragglers left over from various events last year, and decided to have a little fun with them. My Facebook and Instragram (@KustomKissers) followers were given the opportunity to purchase a grab bag of two lip balms and a surprise for just $5. They had no idea what would be on the lip balm, and I had no idea what I was sending yet! A few of the designs are pictured above.
The response was much greater than I anticipated, and it was fun for me too. I might have to do that again. You should follow me to find out.

Is it really December already? The last blog post I wrote was on September 30th. Some bloggers post every day or even multiple times per day, but I post when I'm inspired to write. I don't want to fill space for the sake of filling space. It's important to live life away from the computer since that's usually where inspiration comes from.
So do you want to know what I've been up to during the last two months? I'm working part time as a Grant Writer, soaking up the 75-degree Arizona sunshine, wearing colorful tights, shopping (notsomuch buying), crafting, putting up multiple Christmas trees, reading, running (::gasp::), and dating (::double gasp::).
I've been filling lots of lip balm orders too. The website needs to be updated to keep up with brower upgrades, so the Design Your Own Lip Balm feature isn't working. That won't stop us though! I can still process your order manually. To get started, email the photo you would like on your lip balm to Heather@KustomKissers.com. I'll then send you a proof for approval and invoice for payment.
If you have a lip balm lover on your list, you can gift them an annual membership to the Kustom Kissers Lip Balm of the Month Club. Each member recieves three unique, organic lip balms per month for an entire year. The cost is $50, and the first shipment will include a note stating who the gift is from. Email me for that one too, or anything else for that matter. I'm still here! Promise.

Want to see where Kustom Kissers lip balm is made? Welcome to the tour of my spare bedroom!
This L-shaped desk is made from two bar-height kitchen islands purchased at Ikea. They're awesome because I can sit or stand while working. Those pink tubes along the wall are from Ikea's kitchen section too. They are meant to hold plastic grocery bags, but I filled them up with lip balm for easy access and organization.
I write all my blog posts from this computer wardrobe minus the door. It opened the wrong way and was generally annoying, so I took it off. The globe on top is covered in chalkboard paint thanks to my dad.
The shipping station is comprised of two end tables my dad found on the sidewalk.
A thrifted library card catalogue is a crafter's dream. It holds odds and ends from stickers to ribbon, markers and glue, etc.
My college degrees are proudly displayed to remind me that smart people make custom lip balm for a living. Ha!
The storage unit (also from Ikea) holds a printer, paper, several types of labels, letterhead, business cards, Design Your Own Lip Balm Kits and lots more.
Each pink tube is filled to the rim with blank lip balms, one for each flavor and color. When fully stocked, they hold 4,000 tubes waiting to be labeled. That thought makes me happy.
This concludes the Kustom Kissers portion of our tour. Any questions?
