A little about me...


K I N D R A

I am a wife of almost 7 years now and a mother to two beautiful children. I have a wonderfully imaginative 6 year old boy named Kambel and a crazy red headed daughter names Kamryn (loving referred to as "Big Red") who is almost 11 months. We live in the Midwest area along with our 2 dogs and 3 cats. I work almost full time and run my website and etsy store on the side. I have been in love with everything crafty since Elementary school. I was an art geek in High school and would love to at some point pursue it in college. I started scrabooking when I was in High School and have been hooked every since!!

My inspiration would have to be... EVERYTHING! From plane tickets to postcards to old letters... I love to keep and display everything. You know you are a hardcore scrabooker when you get some cute embellishments and have to take pictures just to match your materials! I love colors as well! Many of my items are pretty vintage but I find the colors of the Earth... browns, greens, grays, and black to be just as inspirational.

Well, it's no surprise that I love to use paper! I love to shade it, stain it, tear it, crumble it... you name it! I also love fibers such as twine, lace, ribbon, and yarn. I've been expanding lately to incoorperate more. I recently did a project on canvas and have started to use fabrics and tulle. That's the great thing about crafting. Anything goes!

I use to have a great big work area that was cluttered with more items than I could possible use in a lifetime. It was Heaven!! And then... my daughter came along and I had to do something I NEVER thought I'd have to do... Organize! Now I have a huge cabinet that stays somewhat clean. I'm holding out for a larder space here in the future!

My husband and I both come from "K" families. I'm Kindra and he's Kerry. Just in our immediate family we have: Karon, Kris, Kaye, Kevin, Kolby, and Kaylene. We decided to carry on the trend in naming our kids, Kambel and Kamryn. I know, I know, how "Korny" =)
