Katie Jo Yates' Profile

About

Hello Etsians!!
I'm Katie Jo. I'm a nurse by trade... turned crafter. After years of putting crafts on the back burner....I'm back and enjoying it now more than ever. I love to take a simple outfit and make it fabulous with handmade accessories. It's so nice to be able to tell someone giving you a compliment, "I made it!!" I remember growing up I made lilacs out of the plastic that holds 6 packs of soda together. It was fun to take so called garbage and make something beautiful out of it. I was hooked from there. I took several years off for my child and career but am overjoyed to be back. It all started back up after ordering a large box of vintage buttons and thinking of everything under the sun that they could beautify. The ideas just started to flow and soon overflowed from my basement in to the guest bedroom and beyond. After pushing many items on friends, I thought I better sell on Etsy...or find a lot more…

I love every type of craft! I've tried to settle on one but there are so many...so why choose? I crochet, sew, make wreaths, bracelets, rings, necklaces, headbands and everything in between that sparks my interest. I really enjoy fabric flowers because they are so versatile. I wear them in my hair, on a purse, or on a summer dress or sweater. It somehow makes me feel wonderful :-) I hope you find something at my shop to make you feel GREAT as well!!
Happy Day!
