Featured Shop of the Week- Kiser Krafts

Our featured shop has been introduced once before (read the first feature here), but we want to show you how Kiser Krafts is growing and changing. I also encourage everyone to read Kelly's inspiring story on Daft Crafts "The Miracle of Crafting."

Hi! I am Kelly, the krazy maker of Kiser Krafts! I am a SAHM, who crafts to stay sane. Kiser Krafts came to be to help me stay home to raise our two children, help with my creative addiction, and help put milk on the table. Kiser Krafts has added Woodland sock creations of a foxes and owls!! And more new things are in the works!!

I love having my own shop because I can stay home with my children and feed my creative need, which helps me remember.

I am branching out into doll making and hopefully soon be able to have them available in the shop! As well as Kremlin( sort of a sock gremlin - cute and fun) and Emotion flower stems! :) The Emotion flowers have been helpful with my 3 year old to express her feelings when she cannot find the words to tell me. She shows me the smiley flower side for happy or the frowny side for when she is sad. I hope to get more of those produced to add later on this year.

I love making my sock lions! But my sweet bunnies are the best seller. Which, I don't mind as I love to make those too.

I did reach my goals of 2013...and am very excited about the few goals I have in 2014. So far, I have reached the goal of 600 Facebook fans. Which was so humbling. That goal has been changed to 700 now. And I am hoping to make the goal of 50 sales in my little shop this year. And then add 3 new products by the end of the year.

Random facts about me:
1: terrified of snakes and spiders
2: I suffer clinical amnesia and short term memory loss
3: Green is my favorite color
4: I would love to visit Ireland
5: I own a sock collection of over 600 pairs of decorative/character socks that have never been worn and 100+ in addition to that for wearing
Just a little of the randomness that is my life, there are many more but we'll stick with those. :)
