While having a fabulous time at Julie Q’s Nintendo party, we met one of our readers, Kristen. One of the first things we noticed about Kristen was the super cute tote bag she was carrying on her shoulder. She happened to mention that she didn’t buy the tote bag, but that she actually made the bag herself. Yes, she made it herself. She went on to tell us that she loves sewing purses, making jewelry, etc. and that she and her friend even have their own Etsy shop. Their shop is called We are Kindred Spirits and she runs it with one of her best friends, Sam. Since Chels and I are clearly sort of kindred spirits ourselves this is definitely an idea we can get behind.

We wanted to share a few of our favorite pieces from We are Kindred Spirits with you:
We love the simple, but fun styles. And the low prices for such unique bags and jewelry! Just another of the million reasons why we have an Etsy obsession.
