My wife, daughter, and myself loved Kailey Skye's functional art. She's a terrific seamstress and every piece is handmade by Kailey. I hope she makes a million. I hope someone will give her some seed money to expand her empire. Nice to know in Deerfield we have entrepreneurs, mompreneurs, and now kidpreneurs.
