Announcement   All bridal pillows are now $25.00 each.
Welcome to Kit Kat Crafts by K Melville Designs! My shop is full of handmade, hand crafted and often one of a kind items. All my handmade items are made by me in my cozy California studio. Many of my items are made from recycled, salvaged, or reclaimed wood. My first love in my shop is designing painted plaques and signs. When a customer purchases a painted item from me I feel so proud that my work will live with them or be gifted to someone they love. I have been sewing ever since I was a child, it came naturally to me. Mom taught me on an old pedal sewing machine.

I am a proud member of an Etsy Team called The Old Farmhouse Gathering. It is a talented professional group of artisans who create everything from primitives to Shabby Chic, with an old fashion flair! Please type -- OFG team -- to see all their wonderful work. We can also be found at OldFarmhouseGathering.blogspot.com. You won't be disappointed!

About

My journey to my etsy shop.

Like so many owners of Etsy shops my journey started with a love of homemade, handmade, and one of a kind gifts for myself, family, and friends. Then your friends and family start asking you to make something for them. Then friends of friends and friends of family ask you, and the snowball starts to run downhill. You are hooked, and before you know it you are setting up your tent at craft fairs, home bazaars, and street fairs.
I completely took over a room in my home for my studio. French doors open to my studio off the main living area. I work many hours in my shop and I don't feel isolated in this room. My craft room is south facing with an extra large window that has perfect natural light for painting and sewing. I have it decorated in shabby chic, cottage design. The room is set up with multiple tables, and work areas. This way I can easily go from painting to sewing with only a few changes. My garage is also dedicated to my shop. Perfect for cutting, sanding and varnishing wood projects, storage of waiting projects to complete, and storage of listed items in my shop.
I feel blessed to have my shop on Etsy, that it allows me to create with my hands.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 24, 2017
I hope you enjoy your visit to Kit Kat Crafts. I design most of my wood plaques out of salvaged wood or pine wood I have purchased. I create many of the images I paint or I am inspired by great tole painters that I want to test myself against their skills. I started painting and sewing gifts for friends and family years ago. That grew into selling plaques, birdhouses, aprons, and baby blankets at craft fairs. I have many satisfied customers and repeat business. I continually add new handmade items to my shop.

Once I have started to create your order..
Often times I must get your feedback on your project, approving sketches, types of flowers, birds or any changes that are made. Please remember it takes valuable work space in my studio to create your project and if you are not returning email communication (within 48 hours) I cannot work on your project. Your project will be set aside and I will start my next custom order, or the next item I am designing for my shop. When that project is complete I will return to your order. A email will be sent to you letting you know I am setting your order aside.
These policies are the only way I can run a successful shop.
