I recently came across a wonderful new shop on Etsy and wanted to share her talent. McKenney's Keepsakes specializes in scrabble tile sized wood pendents. She offers a wide range of designs and is happy to help make a custom orders to meet her customers specific needs.
Tell me a little about yourself:
I am mom and wife. We are a blended family with 4 kids between us. Recently we moved from the big city of Fort Lauderdale Florida, to the tiny town of Stafford Springs, CT. Our kids range in age from 16-10, 3 boys and 1 girl.
Why did you start making your items?
I've always been a fairly crafty person. I started making these pendants as gifts for other people. Those people responded very well to them so I thought I would try selling them.
What is your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from all over the place. My friends, my kids, my intrests, my family...they all inspire me in some way, shape, or form.
What else would you like to share?
I hope to expand my collection in the up coming months include not only pendants, but magnets, pushpins, and book marks. I have been experimenting with all of those things and hopefully will be able to get them introduced soon. I also have experimented with personal photos. I would like to offer this service as well. I find that the photo gifts are always great for grandparents and extended family.
