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

10 years ago, photo shoot for the @ocweekly cover story with the Long Beach Craft Mafia! I made bags and wallets then and what better timing for this 10 year challenge thing since people are asking me to make bags again. #tbt #10yearchallenge #handmade #kelsodoesntdance #longbeachcraftmafia #craftmafia
