Hello! I’m Ilyssa and I’ve been a crafter for as long as I can remember.  Although I’ve graduated from making snow globes out of pickle jars, my love of making things by hand has never wavered; I have a craft project on me at all times. From balloons to paper crafts to pom poms, I enjoy using a wide variety of materials and love playing with color. I live in Chicago with my husband and our two young daughters, Raia and Adira. Here you'll find a collection of past projects as well as upcoming craft kits.

For sneak peeks and current projects, be sure to follow me on Instagram @madebyilyssa.
