Bobos’ Blankets

At Bobos’ Blankets, I make handmade quilts, blankets, burp cloths, and bibs.  I also make tote bags and aprons.  I call my two boys my “Big Bobo” and my “Little Bobo” and they LOVE to carry around burp cloths and blankets.  They, plus my mom, aunts, and grandmother, inspired me to create my items and joy to share with others.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? When I’m not creating for Bobos’ Blankets, I am a girls volleyball coach. 

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots; the other, wings. – Hodding Carter

What’s your favorite holiday beverage at Starbucks? (And, are you a fan of the red cups?!)  A venti peppermint mocha, no whip!  And I LOVE the holidays so I don’t mind the red cups.

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?  We get on our pajamas and make hot cocoa (or chocolate milk) and get in the car and drive all over looking at Christmas lights.  My boys have a hard time falling asleep after that.

Spring 2012 Vendor Feature: SNUGGLEBUG COLLECTION

Snugglebug Collection
shop | facebook

I’m the mother of three amazing little ones, and my husband and I couldn’t be happier. I love being creative! I opened my shop in October 2009 after several moms asked where they could get a baby sling of their own. I decided I needed to create a local marketplace for other moms. I began to grow my collection with my favorite test market: my own babies. I love providing other parents with stylish products that are practical and durable. It’s all about quality, style, and convenience ~ baby products that are as beautiful and unique as your little one.

Get To Know Christin of Snugglebug Collection

What is the #1 played song on your iPod? I love anything by Jesus Culture! I have a playlist called “Fav Christian” and it consists mainly of their songs. I love filling my house with worship music, and my little ones are starting to sing along now.

What is one of your favorite quotes? “Having a child is to forever watch your heart walk around outside of your body” – so true!!

What are you most looking forward to about this spring’s Homespun Chic Marketplace? I love the crowd this show draws. We get to meet our wonderful customers face-to-face. The interaction is so much fun.

What’s your favorite Central Florida sight? Being a growing family, my husband and I always try to find inexpensive or free activities that our little ones will love. We enjoy taking them to Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs. The kids enjoy playing by the fountain, running around on the grass, and making new friends. Each night, there is a fountain show that is choreographed to lights and music. This park attracts a lot of young families, and the kids have a blast. The best part – it’s absolutely free!

Spring 2012 Vendor Feature: SWEET SUMMER BABY

Sweet Summer Baby
shop | facebook

I’ve been in the business of creating since I was a little girl. I’ve always found time to sew and try new crafty things like woodburning, jewelry-making, and painting. When I left my job in publishing after my daughter was born, I took a leap and decided to make a go at selling my handmade children’s clothing and accessories online. Everything I make is inspired by my family, and I love sharing my creative style with other kids and their families. I hope to meet a lot of new people at the Homespun Chic Marketplace and share the creative energy!

Get To Know Lisa of Sweet Summer Baby

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Rainbow Connection, the Sarah McLachlan version.

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? Live the life you’ve always imagined.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I’m a Martha want-to-be. I love cooking, doing home improvement projects, and working in my garden, especially in my vegetable garden.

What’s your favorite Central Florida Food Truck? Sweet by Good Golly Miss Holly.

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? I love the Winter Park Farmers’ Market. There’s always a good crowd, and I usually wind up buying something I hadn’t planned on.
