Hi, I’m Kailey. I live in Oregon with my husband and 2 kiddos. We are sensitive to smoke and perfumes, but otherwise don’t have allergies (except to mango, probably not relevant here.) Ornaments made of non-breakable materials are best as the kids tend to break breakable things…though we do have a couple fragile ornaments that have survived their shenanigans.

My Themes are:

  1. Flamingos (the kids love flamingos, they made up their own flamingo superheroes, Flamingo Girl and Flamingo Friend)
  2. Dragons
  3. Unicorns/Pegasus/allicorns
  4. Fossils
