Featured Shop of the Week: Kiser Krafts

Our featured shop this week is a creative toy maker, Kiser Krafts- "making useful socks playful." Owner Kelly is a fellow Kansas Citian, stay at home mom, and coffee lover. I encourage everyone to read Kelly's inspiring story on Daft Crafts "The Miracle of Crafting."

Kelly says, "My shop helps me with my sock addiction, sewing addiction, and helps my brain function. I got started when a friend, Cody, encouraged me to sell my sock lions in her shop. It opened my eyes to my inner dream of selling handmade things and providing for my children while still staying home."

When asked what the most challenging aspect of running her own business, Kelly said, "It is ALL on me. Every part of it I do myself, creating, designing, networking, listing, business matters, and a lot of hand sewing. But with proper time management I get it all done, or at least most of it. I keep a lot of lists and notes (oh drink lots of coffee)."

"My favorite things are my family, movie night with my husband, socks, sewing, yarns, crochet hooks, knitting needles, paints, Lu and Ed monsters, The Mollie Shop dollies, and Violet Buds bows! Favorite color is green and my favorite way to relax is a hot bubble bath when kiddos are asleep."

"Each item is handmade by me - with love, care, and time. There are never two items that are the same - each one is "one of a kind."

We are excited to help Kiser Krafts announce their newest line of products, which are launching this Sunday-- Sock Monsters!! "The story behind the sock monster is more of a creative way to use the cut up pieces of sock I have laying around. I do not want anything to go to waste. So after several prototypes - of which my children were the receivers of - I come to this idea of a 'sock monster'. They are made of 1 sock or several different socks. Each is unique, colorful, creative, and one of a kind. They are fun, playful, and perfect size for hands of all sizes."

One lucky fan will win this new sock monster, Wallace, with free US shipping. "Wallace was born among the brave in the trenches of war. He fought the negatives about him to become a funny sock monster to bring joy and patriotism to children of all ages. He loves to sing and dance to see smiles on faces around him. His favorite song is the National Anthem of United States. And he salutes to you!"
