Kim's Crafty Apple Giveaway



Kim's Crafty Apple is a super cute Etsy shop I found through Twitter. She has a ton of really fun and funky jewelry, as well as some adorable baby and kids' clothing, quilts, and more!

A bit about Kim and her shop, from Kim herself:
I have been creating things for as long as I can remember. When I was six, I sewed my brother a "quilt" using my mom's rags... including a furry toilet seat cover. He loved it, of course! I love to sew, bead and make things you wouldn't expect out of everyday items. I have a degree in engineering because I thought solving problems was fun. I also own and operate an apple orchard with my husband and his parents (hence, Kim's Crafty Apple). [You can read more about this if you are interested at http://www.LapaceksOrchard.com and/or http://www.lapaceksorchard.blogspot.com.] After I had my first baby girl I went back to work, but once I was pregnant with my second, my husband and I decided I would stay home with the kids, do the orchard thing and try to make my love of crafts support my love of crafts. I started my Etsy shop five days after my second child was born. I try to make a mixture of 'standard' items along with some more unique things that the right person has to come along and fall in love with. You will find a wide variety of items from original quilts to funky earrings to fun rings to ACEO's to beautiful hand-dyed clothing to our original 'Apple-tizing Recipes from Lapacek's Orchard' Cookbook to vintage Candy Land Magnets! I hope you enjoy browsing my shop! To read stories behind the things I make or the happenings of a crafter's life, make sure to check out my blog.

  23. I absolutely love the bright colors. My bathroom's motif is neon colors like this; very 70s psychedelic. I have strings of bright glass beads hanging in from of my bright yellow sheers. My shower curtain is a white background with neon orange, lime green, blue, and yellow polk dots. Its wild but really nice. A big change from my previous rose colored bathroom.

    Back to the jewelry now. My preferred piece on the site are the Golden Pink Glass Art Earrings.
