Hi there! My name is Kristen Stansell. I am originally from Dallas but spent the past four years living in Orange County, California. My husband and I decided to move back to Texas in 2016 and found out we were expecting our first child in May 2017. All in one year we moved across county, built a home, welcomed our first child, and I started teaching lettering workshops. I love to letter but even more than that, I find so much joy in teaching others lettering. 

I started lettering before I understood that lettering was a “thing”. When I learned the alphabet as a child, I loved creating my own unique letters. In my twenties, my brother strongly encouraged me to do something with my love for hand drawn letters. He showed me others that had turned their passion for hand lettering into a business and it made me realize that I could do the same. Lettering has been a great creative outlet for me as well as a business that has provided extra income for our family. Whether you are interested in starting a business or wanting to hone in on your lettering skills, I would love to be a part of your journey! For monthly challenges and lettering inspiration see @CraftedByWorkshop on Instagram.

I also love to write and encourage others with scripture. Typically anything I write is coming from an area that I personally need to be encouraged in. For lots of lettering and encouragement see my @CraftedBy page on Instagram.


Take a look around my site and let me know if you have any questions! I love the opportunity to collaborate with others so if there is a custom project you have in mind please let me know by emailing me at kristen@crafted.by 

Thanks for stopping by!
