Anna Kyle's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Anna Kyle and I've been designing and making clothes, costumes, and home decor my entire life. I've been selling on that big auction site for years, but I prefer the community here on Etsy. I'm a married mom to 2 groovy boys.

My personal time is usually spent working with my sons, who both have autism. I also hang out with my Memaw (that's southern for grandma) who taught me everything I know about sewing and crafts. I usually have a house full of kids to inspire me and twisted friends to help me take my ideas a step further.

I work in phases so my shop isn't always full. Much of my work is "upcycling", which I've been doing since I was a child and just learned it's name. I take items that are either out of style, boring, unloved, or otherwise unused and turn them into something that can be loved again. I have a work room full of…

Some of my work ends up being simple and laid back, but you'll also find a few things here that are as freak-a-delic as my mind.

***DOWN TO BUSINESS***

If you are ever not satisfied with any of my items I'll gladly take a return and refund your money. I don't want anyone paying for something that isn't right for them... the old "treat others the way you want to be treated" thing! :)

I usually ship within 24 hours of payment. I prefer to use the USPS since the prices are fair and they are coming to my home daily anyway. I figure if they are going to use the gasoline already there's no need to have another truck come here using twice the resources.

Most of the time my packing materials are recycled. I like to use clean boxes that would otherwise be headed for a recycle bin and give them another trip around. My friends and family even save their gift wrap and tissue paper for me to wrap delicate items. :)

I'm super laid back and easy to work with. If you have any requests just send me a message. I'd be happy to try and work with you!
