LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A craft studio is helping families find just the right little project for those looking for activities during the pandemic.

Laurie Evans started Cut & Paste Craft Studio almost five years ago after her kids went off to college.

"We specialize in providing suppplies and helping with technique for the people that want to be walked through it," Evans said.

Normally, the studio works with individuals, facilitates birthday parties and offers summer camps and field trips. However, all that is off the table right now during the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Evans had to get creative.

"We put a lot of the crafts on our website under a category called 'kits' and there's another category called 'classes.' We're doing some online painting classes," Evans said.

Online, you can find wooden crafts for kids to paint, door hangers and welcome signs in a variety of themes. Not only are customers purchasing online for themselves, but also for others during this time.

"Out of the blue, I've had people contact me who want to donate money to buy kits for families who are struggling," Evans noted.

Until Cut & Paste can welcome back customers inside, she will keep being creative in her ways.
