Meet our featured shop for this week, Krafts by Kondrot, and owner Elizabeth.
I love paper. All kinds of paper. Every aspect of paper. When my daughter went away to college, I was so lost. I decided to turn my love of paper, from a hobby, into a full blown addiction! I love to do shows, home shows, craft shows, farmer's markets. I have been doing those for over 20 years.
My favorite hobby is to cross stitch, but my kard making keeps me the busiest. I find that, if I don't create for 2 or more days, I get grumpy. It is scary to me, that I am moving in a couple of months and probably won't be able to play with paper for a while. I have some cross stitch set aside for this.
The most challenging aspect of business is keeping up. Trying to keep up with housework, family and crafting. I work on my kards about 8-12 hours a day, depending on my order log.
I LOVE FOOTBALL! Michigan State University is my team!! We are the 2014 Rose Bowl Champs and I will be saying this as often as possible until the next Rose Bowl Game. Go GREEN! I am also a Chicago Bears fan and that won't be changing when I move!
I spent from April, 2013 to March, 2014 fostering sick kittens. I had 10 all together and we ended up keeping one! It was the most gratifying thing I have ever done. I love my dog. He is my "best guy ever."
A crazy little ditty..... I can't make my kards sitting down. I have to be standing up, for the most part.
You can find Krafts by Kondrot on Facebook and Storenvy. Elizabeth is generously offering one fan a set of 6 surprise kards. They will be a coordinated set, yet each kard will be a bit different. All kards are blank on the inside.
