About

About

Kelso Doesnt Dance is eco accessories, handmade for real life! Everything is made to be good looking, functional and practical for everyday use.

I design and handmake upcycled wallets, notebooks, totes and more using a collection of office/school/library themed things I find.
including map and book page wallets, book cover and card notebooks, dress shirt purses and totes

AND I’ve also started making alternative gardens!
Succulent Picture Frames: living succulents growing vertically out of wall frames
and
String Gardens: hanging foliage and succulents growing without a planter from moss and string balls

Hey LA, this weekend is the last show of the year! Come check out 200+ makers and designers and support small businesses for the holiday in downtown LA. If you ask me, this is the biggest and best makers event in southern CA. It’s right next to the Chinatown train station and def. worth the trip. Come visit me! #smallbusiness #handmade #craftfair #craftshow #renegadecraftfair #makersgonnamake #hustleeveryday #dtla

For the last several years I’ve been hand making plant hangers and holders for cactus, succulents & airplants so this #cactus kit is PERFECT! In January this #smallbusiness I’ve been running all on my own will be 10 years old! 😱😄I can say without question that this is the hardest job, both mentally and physically, I’ve ever had but I feel so proud to show people the work I do so it’s all worth it. And when I need to, I also like to just pedal it out! 👧🏼🚲💪🏼 Also, I’d love to win this kit cause I don’t even own a proper one & just the other day @breakawaymanny told me I need a kit! 😂😄👍🏼🚲💗 #heavypedal #theheavypedal #merrykitmas #whenindoubtpedalitout #hardwork #smallbusiness #cyclingkit #cutestuff #HPkitmas
