I am Cherie, divorced and proud momma to 3 wonderfully amazing kiddos! We are a christian family. I have always had a desire to "create" things from the time I was little. I enjoy being able to be hands on and LOVE to work with my children. I enjoy making things that bring joy to others!

This is the story behind Pirate Girl Gifts - In 1997 I was blessed with the most beautiful gift in the world! She was a screaming, kicking 7 pound 8 oz little girl! We would soon find out that her delicate skin was allergic to just about everything that touched it. I tried all the "baby safe" laundry detergents, shampoos, soaps, lotions, etc. The doctor finally put her on a steroid based cream to keep the severe eczema under control. I hated the fact that my little bundle of fire that had now become a toddler, was having to be slathered in chemical based gunk. I began looking around more seriously and decided to start playing around with homemade soaps and lotions. I have very delicate skin myself and began testing different recipes out on my skin. I finally found some recipes that I really liked, so I began using them on my then, 3 year old daughter.... much to my relief her skin didn't react, it actually seemed to get better! After some more fine tuning, I decided I would start making my products and selling them at small craft fairs and to family and friends.

In 2000, I decided to make a go at making this a business. Over the years between then and now, we have gone through many changes - surviving cancer, divorce, many, many other things. We have gone through name changes of the business, product changes and many, many other things. I had even considered closing my business completely this last year, so I could go to work outside my home. I feel a very strong call to be home with my children, though and to be able to be creative, imaginative and my own boss. I love what I do..... I take much pride in everything I make and it is all hand crafted in very small batches. I know you will love everything we create here at Pirate Girl Gifts!

Cherie Fetters - Owner and founder of Pirate Girl Gifts

I am assisted in creativity by Courtney, Caeleb and Torie... my 3 wonderful gifts!

Applejack Peel (Type): This smells just like the yummiest apple you have ever had the privilege of eating and then some. It has hot and spicy top notes of cinnamon and cloves rounding down to the mellow scent of red apples. Men love this one! It is especially popular during the fall and winter months when all anyone wants to do is cuddle up in front of the fire!

Baby Rose: This fragrance is a lighter, pinker rose than our English Rose. It smells like the petite baby roses that come in teensy little planters small enough to fit on your desk.
