Who sparked your love of making?
Both of my parents are creative and they continue to encourage all my arts passions. My 7th grade art teacher Ms. Fleming was a big inspiration to me, she taught me many artistic mediums and was a huge supporter as was my favorite college Art professor, Nanette Wylde.
What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?
I’ve been working on a house ornament craft that I can do with my kids classes at school. I’ll bring some to the show if people want to make one. You can assemble a cozy house from pieces of salvaged wood, discs from branches, buttons, circle punch-outs from old snowy scenes and more.
What inspires you during the holiday season?
I love the change in weather and in our minds turning towards thinking of others for the holidays.
What other vendor are you excited to see/shop this season?
I’m excited to see the on-site marbling that Craftopolis does and I always find gifts at River City Sass.
What is your favorite holiday food or recipe and why?
I go nuts for soup once the temp drops. I made this Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup on Halloween and we’ve had in again since because it’s so easy and tasty. We are also big fans of this broccoli soup that my kids actually ask for frequently (it’s full of veggies)!
Join us for a unique spin on craft fairs where you can craft some of your own holiday goodies. Make a commitment to the environment, your wallet, and creative diversity by purchasing handmade gifts from local entrepreneurs this season.
