Craft Junkie ~ Distressed Wooden Crafts {giveaway}

Country Mouse, City Mouse is happy to introduce an amazing Etsy shop called Craft Junkie.

Craft Junkie is where you will find all sorts of holiday home decor for all seasons of the year.


Getting to know Crissi, the artist behind Craft Junkie....

A friend of mine taught me how to do primitive wood craft about 10 years ago. I had tried painting on wood before and never like how my projects turned out. But I absolutely loved the results of making things the prim way. I got a few little tools and made some things then the excitement died out and other hobbies took over for a few years.

Then about 2 years ago I was reminded of how much fun this was by another friend who has an etsy shop (which I had never heard of before!) I saw that she had found a way to make money out of her wood crafts, so I thought I'd give it a shot. My husband bought me a band saw for our anniversary last year and I've been cutting ever since! It started out slow but over the last year and a half it's really picked up and here I am now being able to support my 5 kids and helping put my husband through college.

What will we find when visiting Craft Junkie?

Upon entering my shop you can find all sorts of holiday home decor for all seasons of the year. My letters are all cut from 2" pine so they are all self standing. I have a passion for mixing the distressed with the glam. I LOVE glitter and sparkles :) I also do some decorations with wood and vinyl.

Family was the very first set which Crissi made. This is where it all began and she became excited about designing.



Crissi had so much fun designing this one! She just loves glitter.


What can we expect to find in your shop in the coming weeks and months?

Right now I am working on a few more holiday items to add to my shop but I am also getting ready to participate in the North West Arkansas Boutique Show Fall 2010 Nov. 19-20. This will be my first show so I am REALLY excited!! On the top of my list of new tools to buy is a vinyl cutter so as soon as I can cross that one off my list you will start seeing MORE of those type of decorations!


I have longed to own chunky letter cut-outs, as I have admired them for some time. But, never found what I thought was perfect...until now. Craft Junkie adds personality to her letters, with glitter and embellishments, that makes them come alive.


I received this set of FALL letters from Craft Junkie. They are beautifully crafted and finished professionally. There aren't any rough edges, and the choice of colours really brings the beauty of the season inside. Crissi has made them just the right height (not too small and not too large). Using the maple leaf as the letter 'A' is so cute and makes it special and unique.

I have mine sitting on my front window ledge. They are facing into our living room, but anyone walking up to our home (from the outside) would know that it says Fall. I think they are really cute here, but can see they would be just as great on mantles, an entry way table, or as a table centerpiece.

Craft Junkie offers fantastic pieces at great price points. There is something for every season. The workmanship is tops, and what you receive is a unique handmade treasure. These blocks are a great way to add a seasonal touch to your home, or they make great gift ideas! I will enjoy this block set for many years to come, and, I can't wait to see what Crissi comes up with next.


Thank you Crissi for being a part of Country Mouse, City Mouse and sharing with myself and my readers your lovely Fall splendor!
