I met Karri years ago through a parenting message board. During my first trip to Wisconsin we got to meet up, have lunch and she showed me around her gorgeous neighborhood! Last spring my family got to meet hers and we all hung out over a couple of dinners. Seriously fun people. And, my kids loved her kids. We might even be neighbors one day.. if Matt could ever find a job in WI.
Recently Karri opened up her Etsy shop, Green D Designs. Really, really cute stuff. But, instead of continuing to ramble, I'll let Karri tell you a little bit about herself and her shop..

Do meat (that includes fish/sea creatures). Or any cheeses that remotely smell (I have a name for these)
If we spent an afternoon together, you'd learn that I....
You'd also learn that I am biased toward all things Apple. And have strong feelings against fast food.
I think you'd also walk away thinking that I am real.
I initially started my blog years ago when my kids were wee ones, simply so I could share their sometimes silly, sometimes frustrating antics with my family. Eventually, I decided I wanted to try and reach out to others in the blogging community...others who dabble in everything-parenting, crafting, photography, trying to find their place in life...
What inspired you to start up your shop & blog?
I started sewing about a year and a half ago. I would see all these cool things and think, "I can make that." After making so many shirts and skirts for my daughter that she started rolling her eyes at me, I decided I needed to branch out. So I started making them as gifts. And then friends and family started asking to buy them. So I took a leap and opened a store.
