Welcome to My Crafty Side

Photo of Karen Jahns, owner of Crafty Side of Karen
For as long as I can remember, I have always had the desire to create art and crafts. At an early age I began to draw and took as many art classes as possible while in school. One of my favorites was watercolor painting and I wanted to incorporate my love of baking and cooking into my art. Being self taught at crocheting, I wanted to create some fun practical pieces. When I am not painting or crocheting, I enjoy traveling with my wonderful husband Justin around the world, or you can find me reading or baking some delicious treats!

With my background in Art and love of all things Arts & Crafts, it has been a dream of mine to start a business creating things I love! I hope you enjoy these items as much as I enjoyed creating them.
–Karen Jahns
