Halloween T-Shirt from Chalk of the Town
Who needs a fancy costume when you can be comfy in an “interactive” T-Shirt from Chalk of the Town!
Info from Chalk of the Town
Wendy and sister Sondra have always been crafty, so when they noticed chalkboard surfaces trending in interior design they thought ‘imagine if we could put a chalkboard on a shirt to create a new shirt everyday!’.The sisters were determined to create a chalkboard-like surface that could accept chalk markers, not only smudgy traditional limestone chalk. As mothers themselves, Sondra and Wendy also felt the shirts had to be durable, machine washable and re-useable.After much research and a bit of product testing help from their school aged children, voila! Chalk of the Town t-shirts were born.
Chalk of the Town is a line of chalkboard products ranging from T-Shirt and Long Sleeve Kits to Tote Bags to Patches, allowing both kids and adults to create and design their own wearable fashion using Chalkboard markers. PLUS they’re both erasable and reusable so you can design again, again and again! All product is available on Amazon. For Halloween this year, we’re offering:
Youth Orange Pumpkin Kit w/ 2 Markers (XS through XL)
- Adult Orange Pumpkin Kit w/ 2 Markers (S through XL)We’ll need the winner (and their family’s) t-shirt sizes when the giveaway is over!

Crystal Water Bottle Elixer Set from Gemstone Well
Just because the weather is getting cooler, it doesn’t mean that we need to stop thinking about staying hydrated…with beautiful healing crystal water bottles from Gemstone Well, you’ll want to drink your water all day long!
Info from Gemstone Well
Gemstone Well was conceived standing in our kitchen one day when Erin turned to me (Chris) and said, “We should make a crystal infused water bottle!” She proceeded to explain how many people (such as herself) have glasses and jars of water sitting around their kitchens with crystals next to them in order to create crystal elixir.
We did a little research, and it didn’t take long to see the need. So many of you told us you would LOVE to have a gemstone water bottle that 1) is affordable, 2) lets you swap out the gemstones and use your own, and 3) protects you from dissolving crystals by not having the stones touch the water.
And so the Elixir2Go bottle was born. Elixir2Go Crystal Water Bottle was just the first step, though. We are continuing to develop new products that make it easier to incorporate crystal health into everyday life. You’ll be a part of determining what happens next.
Gemstone Well is for you. This story is yours as much as it is ours. We are writing it together.
