Kim Whelan
Shop Owner

I am a Military Wife with 3 great kids and my husband was deployed with OIF. I spend my spare time creating new and interesting designs that help promote awareness of our military troops. With 20 years of military lifestyle behind my back I can honestly say that the troops need our support now more than ever before. I dedicate a portion of the money I get from this shop to purchase various items for deployed troops. Enjoy your time in my shop and thanks for visiting!

    Members of America's armed forces are serving around the world in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Korea. Far from family and friends, these dedicated men and women have limited access to the everyday comforts of being back home. Here? your chance to show your support and make a difference! If you are a military mom or dad, wife, grandparent or other family member you can show America? Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines how much you personally appreciate their service. I have always and will continue to donate a portion of the money earned in my shop to purchase requested items and gifts for the deployed troops and other military members serving our great country.
