Did you know that I don’t make any moolah writing this blog? Sad but true. Lots of bloggers have figured out how to make a buck from putting words and pictures out into the world wide web, but I’m not one of them. I blog simply for the love of sharing neat ideas and family stories.
But, if you’ve looked around this blog a little, you may have noticed a button on the left labeled Bottle Breacher. A few nights a week I do earn a few shillings as the staff graphic designer for this awesome all-American company! Bottle Breacher’s owners, Jen and Eli, are close friends and my former San Diego neighbors. I designed their logo, do all their promotional images and handle any in-house design needs they have.
One day while picking up our girls from preschool, Jen asked me how to open an Etsy shop because Eli wanted to sell the bottle openers that he creates from 50-caliber bullets. In just a year and a half, they have turned that small side business into a legit company that employs 9 people — all of whom are active duty service members, reservists, and veterans!
Eli has recently left the Navy (honorably, of course) to pursue building his American dream full time. I am so excited to share that they will be pitching their product on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank for their Veteran’s Day episode TOMORROW NIGHT at 9pm eastern time. Be sure to check it out!
Handsome owns two of these unique openers and I’ve gifted them to several other people in my life. You can customize yours with a name or special date and they’re available in chrome, black, or polished brass. If you want to get an awesome gift (hello, stocking stuffer!) for the beer lover in your life, today is the last day to take advantage of their Pre-Air special.

Because supporting them is kinda like paying me too. ;)
