Shop of the Week: Kristyns Kreations


Kristin opened her Etsy shop in September, 2008. The original spelling of her name was already being used, so Kristin borrowed her sister-in-law's spelling, and Kristyn's Kreations was born!

Kristin is the proud wife of a US Marine, and mom to one daughter. She comes from a crafty family. Her mother knits, her grandmother crochets, and Kristin is busy with photography, scrapbooking, and learning to crochet.

She orginally started her shop as a means to help her grandparents. Crochet is something Kristin's grandmother loves to do. Every baby blanket and scarf in Kristin's store is made by her grandmother, and the profits help to supplement her grandparent's income.

Also for sale in the shop are beautiful eye masks, handmade by Kristin with designer fabrics. The eye masks are lovely and quite soft, perfect for those of us who like to sleep in a completely dark room and wonderful to take along on a plane trip.

If one handmade shop isn't enough to keep Kristin busy, she opened a second Etsy shop in February, Kristyn's Kards ( The card shop is full of lovely handmade cards, tags and other paper goods. There are also lovely postcard prints of Kristin's own photos.

Kristin is happy to work up a custom order in either shop; her turnaround time usually within a week. She will ship internationally, just send her an Etsy convo to work up a special order.

What does Kristin want you to know about her handmade items?

"Crafts and home made items have been in my family for generations. Its in our blood, and we love to share that with others. From our hearts to your homes."
