Who are you?
I'm Koryn, wife to Air Force hubby 21 years and mom to four teens, one in college and the rest all in high school!

What is your Etsy Shop Name?
I have two etsy shops, actually, Mothers Precious Gems and The Taffy Box

What tag categories do you specialize in?
Jewelry and Accessories

Do you create for children or adults, women or men?
Women and children

What do you like about Etsy?
All the great artistic support and mutual promotion, plus wonderful ideas and ability to use mini's on web pages.

What do you like about creating?
It releases the real me, allows me to experiment and makes other people happy too.

What do you love about your business?
I can do it at home, where I am most happy and at peace

What is your favorite product right now?
That's a hard one, but I'd have to say (right now) Christmas themed earrings. It's putting me in the mood for the holidays!

What makes you unique at Etsy?
I've been making jewelry outside of Etsy for a very long time and all of my pieces are made with strict attention to detail and quality both in materials and wormanship. My customers have returned to me over the years whenever they've needed a special gift for someone or when they've added children to their own families. I will add additional strands to mother's bracelets at a future date for cost only, as my congratulations on the new addition to your family!

What makes you unique as a woman?
Hmmm...I guess we're all unique. I'm a good loyal friend, I feel. I don't take that for granted, friends. I'm blessed to have so many.

What do you love about Kids?
Their sense of humor and ability to not take life so seriously - they live in the moment.

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
Well, you can always check out my favorites inside my shops! I love browsing around Etsy and finding other creative artists. I always look up the links of new shops in the forums, especially at Etsymoms!

Spring Break Craft Activity ~ Felt Flower Hair Clips


These Felt Flowers were a lot of fun to make. The girls (ages 5 to 12) enjoyed stitching their flowers together and love their finished products. We cut wool blend felt into cute shapes, then sewed them to Hair Clips, Elastics and Head Bands with embroidery thread.
Thanks Friends for the fun Craft Day!

If you are interested in purchase felt flower hair accessories or felt pieces cut in shapes to make your own flower hair clips, check out BeadedSocks.etsy.com there are lots of cute styles available.

Please leave a comment if you use the pattern. I would love to hear from you!

Crocheted Cradle Purse measures 5 x 6 inches when closed. The top turns down to reveal a baby in the cradle; when your done playing turn the sides up for a pretty purse. This cute little cradle is patterned after one my grandma gave me years ago. My girls still play with my original; this Christmas they each received their own. :)
