*ETSY* Mama Runs with Scissors {review & giveaway}


I have a serious addiction to collecting leg and arm warmers for my kids. They are more than just a fashion statement, they are a must have essential in the wardrobe! If you haven’t caught onto the buzz you should know that these are really easy to use! To wear, simply slip them on arms or legs and you are  ready to go!

There are numerous reasons why I love arm and leg warmers and I’m going to list why!

  • One Size fits Most!
  • Makes Diaper Changes Easy
  • Makes potty training easier!
  • Great Protection for crawlers
  • Versatile Fashion for boys, girls, and adults
  • Keep wearers warm
  • Offers protection from the Sun

Recently I was introduced to Mama Runs with Scissors on Etsy! She has a  huge selection of patterns and styles perfect for both boys and girls in leg & arm department of what she calls “Kool Kid Legs”!

I was pretty happy when I was given the opportunity to review a pair of Kool Kids Legs for both my son and daughter! The hard part was deciding which ones to review as there were so many cute designs from silly monkeys to dinosaurs! We finally chose the Yar Matey Red & White for my two month old and the Chic Chic-A-Dee Birds Kool Kid Legs for my daughter.

The Kool Kid Legs I received were packaged just perfect for gifting ! It’s always nice when sellers go the extra mile to present their work to you with such a personal touch.

About the Kool Kid Legs I received, I’m very impressed with the quality and the fit! I tried them on both my children right away and took lots of photos which are totally going in the scrapbook!

I’ve washed both pairs of Kool Kid Legs a few times and they still look brand new. There was no shrinking or over stretching at all compared to others brands I’ve purchased before.

I enjoyed getting to know the Mama behind Mama Runs with Scissors with my Etsy meet and greet questions and hope you do too!

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

I started this wonderful Esty adventure in January 2008. I was a stay at home mama to two boys then 5 and 2.  As much as i enjoyed staying home with my boys i also really felt that I needed a project that was just for me.  Out of those feeling developed Mama Runs With Scissors and although it has been super challenging at times it has also been a great learning process and creative outlet.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?

I really enjoy the process of cutting and sewing the pieces together.  I spend the time day dreaming and thinking about the little ones who will be wearing my creations.

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

I love to run, take family bike rides and camp at the ocean.

4. What inspires you?


5.In five years you’d like to be…?

I’d love to be sewing some place besides my basement that does not have windows.  Maybe a little studio with lots of natural light!
