Feature Friday: Everything Etsy

Posted by Meghan Quinones
Check out our chat with Kimberly Layton of Everything Etsy.

Welcome to Feature Friday, a new Blitsy series where we chat with top craft bloggers about all things DIY! First up is Kimberly Layton of Everything Etsy.

Tell us about Everything Etsy and how you got started.
Everything Etsy is all about handmade and handmade business. We've grown to include pretty printables and easy DIY gifts. I started the blog with my husband 6 years ago, and we have been working at it ever since. At first it was to promote an Etsy shop, but now it's our main business.

What is your biggest #craftfail?
My biggest craft fail was just last month when I went to make a super easy pre-cut paper flower and it was falling apart before I could finish it! It was a major craft fail moment with my family laughing at me!

Cats or dogs?
Pets...we love them! Over the years (with boys) we've had everything from hedgehogs to a Galapagos Tortoise. Right now we have two awesome dogs and a gecko. Hershey is our 14 yr old Shar-pei and Sherlock is our rescue dog. He's a Plott Hound (a breed we had never heard of before, but it's the official dog of North Carolina.) We can't believe how lucky we were to find him as a puppy in a shelter last year! Isn't he cute?

Are you self taught crafter or did you learn from a class?
My mom did lots of crafty things with me when I was little, but I'm always learning something new. I read craft magazines, watch videos and devour craft books. If I lived alone my house would look like a craft store!

Thanks to Kim for chatting with us! Be on the look out for more profiles of our favorite craft & DIY bloggers, right here every Friday. Happy Crafting!
