About

My sister always said there are two seasons to a year: tanning season and crafting season. Luckily our mom was a crazy crafter when I was little and passed the genes and skills down to me (and my sis) and I now have the drive and passion to share it with all of you.

P.S. Tenleaf's name: "Ten" because my name is Kristen and ever since I can remember I've been getting the question, "How do you spell your name?" and that's when I chime in and say "k-r-i-s-t-E-n...I'm a 'ten' not a 'tin!' And "leaf" happens to be a tribute to my late grandma who's jewelry collection consisted of practically nothing but silver or gold leaf earrings, necklaces and pendants. I adore the name of my studio, the meaning...and reminder it brings every time I see it.
