Guess what? It's another guest blogger day! Today is special though because the guest blogger is someone I have known FOREVER. Seriously. Well at least since 1995! Yep kids that's a long time or forever in Chanda language. She is such a nice person and a wonderful stay at home mom who is Very crafty!! She could probably crochet something amazing in her sleep, while I cannot crochet to save my life. Not to mention her kids are freaking adorable! Please show her some love on her blog These are a few of my Craftiest things and sneak on over to our guilty pleasure Etsy and check out her store Kitn' Kaboodle Kids!
Hello, Heather Lamps here from Kitn’ Kaboodle Kids etsy shop. I live in Arizona with my hubby and 3 kids ages 6, 5 and 2. I love being a SAHM but sometimes I need a break, that’s when crafting comes in! When the little one naps while the older kids are in school I craft, when 8 p.m. hits and the kids are in bed I craft. I love to crochet, sew, make hair bows, I even craft hair if you can believe it! I am always coming up with new and unique styles for my girls. Crafting is a hug stress reliever for me.
Coming up with the name of my Etsy shop was tough. Every name I came up was taken! I even tried many different versions and spellings, finally I called my mom to come to the rescue and together we came up with Kitn’ Kaboodle Kids.
Ready for a tutorial?!
I’ve been slackin on the decorating front lately and with the in-laws coming and Easter on the horizon I figured I should probably decorate a little. I decided to do a spring wreath, I don’t have many wreaths (ok I don’t have any) and I just love spring and all the bright colors and I figured it would brighten my day to look at something cheery.
I hit up the dollar store for this wreath, and then I went to Wal-Mart and got some Kyrlon paint in Bright Idea (yellow).
My wreath took about 2 coats.
While that was drying I went through my yarn stash and pulled out all my scraps of bright colors and crocheted little flowers and an eyelet garland. I glued all the flowers on little alligator clips so that that can be changed out or ya know worn in your hair!
Once the wreath was dry I wrapped the eyelet garland around it, and tucked the ends securely under one of the reeds (or whatever the wreath is made of).
Then I clipped on my flowers. And that’s it a fun spring wreath.
And since nothing is glued down you can change it whenever ya want, which I think is a big bonus, interchangeable is AWESOME in my book!
Right now my go to product is my flowers and headbands, but I am working on expanding my crochet skills to clothes and even crocheted toy sets. I am always looking for unique products to offer in my shop, so if that’s what you are looking for check out kitnkaboodlekids.etsy.com.
