About Us

Hi! Welcome to KDHandmadeDesigns! Our team consists of 2 best friends that have come together to share their love for crafting. 


Karrisa Dean
I'm Karrisa Dean (former owner of twogirlsandsomecups) originally from Kansas and a HUGE lover of the Kansas Jayhawks. I moved to Arizona in 2012 where I met my husband, Chris. We have 1 toddler, Chris Jr. (CJ) and 2 adorable yet terrorizing puppies. I currently handle all silicone mold, wooden home decor, and some seasonal orders. 
Deserie Simpson
I’m Deserie’ and I am a stay at home dog mom… just kidding; I wish. I work full time as an Executive Administrator and volunteer as a director for Sunshine Dog Rescue. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Arizona State University and went on to graduate school at Grand Canyon University Mastering in Criminal Justice. My passion is animal rights, advocacy and making people smile. I enjoy creating custom handmade items to inspire the heart and home. My specialty is apparel, home décor and seasonal designs.
