Craft Therapea {review + giveaway}




I feel that as a writer for the Ivy Twines, it is my duty to familiarize our readers with not only impressive hand mades but also with individuals who are just trying add a bit of enjoyment to life with their hand mades and would love others to join in on their felicity.


Thus, I introduce to you Craft Therapea.






Craft Therapea was originated by the all delightful Kelly. Kelly works as a mental health therapist but felt that she needed a little therapy of her own. In turn, she found crafting for a release. Kelly purchased her first sewing machine around this same time last year and the rest is history!






Her nifty shop includes prints (as you've previously seen of the flower, barn and starfish) and Kelly loves to add that exclusive touch to her products personalizing hand towels, pillow cases and children aprons.


And lucky, lucky me! I got to sample one of Kelly's custom aprons. She let me choose from her plethora of fabrics and was more than willing to work with any suggestions I had for my daughter's very own apron. I was anxious to see the final product and was certainly please when I quickly recieved it in the mail!






Kelly is such a joy to work with, I am absolutely certain that if you had an idea in mind that you would like to see come to life, she would be beside herself to help you make it happen!



The upbeat and delightful Kelly is offering a personalized childrens' apron to one lucky reader of the Ivy Twines!




There is a catch: Kelly likes to keep life exciting and fresh; therefore, her giveaway will be short and quick ending in exactly 7 days! So, don't wait! Hurry and get your registries in ASAP!
