Still, many choose to take on extra-curricular activities like sports, music or theater. A smaller number choose to throw a part time job in the mix. Fulshear sisters, Kyleigh, age seventeen, and Emalie, age thirteen, took it to a whole new level – they started their own company. Kyleigh and Emalie Campbell’s mother, Keri, had seen how successful yard cards had been in other communities and presented the idea to her daughters as a way they could earn some extra money. Yard cards are a fun way to congratulate someone, or wish them a happy birthday, in a really big way – a full out display in their front yard!
The girls took a fast liking to the idea and began researching the ins and outs of such a business. Before long, their garage was stacked high with large letters and their webpage was complete. In August of 2015, Ky and Em’s Yard Cards was officially open for business. While mom Keri oversees the Facebook page, for safety reasons, and helps the girls manage their financials, Kyleigh and Emalie are responsible for planning and executing each order, making sure no ones’ special day falls through the cracks.
