Inspiring Handmade Traditions

My family is my inspiration. Crafting is in my blood. I love to see the joy on people's faces when they receive a handmade item, created just for them. I remember the joy and anticipation I always had as a child when my grandma's big care package came in the mail.

I learned to sew and crochet as a young girl. My love for creating with fabric and yarn and beautiful notions continued after college when I started making gifts for baby showers and for my own babies.

My husband encouraged me to start selling, so now I get to share my love of creating with you!! I am so excited that my children also share my love of crafting. Some of the items in my shop were created by them.

My children inspired me to include recycled items in my shop and love to help me make recycled crayons.

Choosing to buy a carefully crafted handmade item as a gift is a wonderful way to make people feel special. Some of my favorite custom projects have been ones that were specially designed with a particular family member or friend in mind. All the pictures people send me of their babies and children wearing items that I've made bring me extra joy!! I love the challenge of custom orders.

Thank you for stopping by KittenYarn's store.
All items in my store are handmade by me or by family members with love and care. My children love doing handcrafts and helping with recycled crayons, and you will see some of their beautiful creations from time to time. My dad the artist graciously helped me design and create some unique original art greeting cards for my shop. Crocheting is my first love, but I love all kinds of handcrafts. I also love recycling and finding new ways to recycle and repurpose to make functional art :)
