Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: BIRDS AND BLOSSOMS GIFTS

Birds and Blossoms Gifts

DSC_8235edMy name is Mandi King and I am the owner of Birds and Blossoms Gifts. I enjoy doing many different kinds of crafts and am constantly learning new techniques. Most of the items in my shop are made of new and recycled fabrics, vintage wools, wood, paper, and found items. I make fabric bunting banners, decorative wooden blocks, picture frames, altered notebooks,  gift  tags and other one-of-a-kind items. I am inspired by many different designers and styles, and my designs incorporate a blend of vintage, shabby chic, cottage, and whimsy.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I love photography and playing outside with my kids.

My name is Gabriela and well, I’m the goddess of InYourBones. lol!! I am so lucky that I can do what I love. I live in Mount Dora, FL. with my lobster. I spend most days sewing, whether it be indoors or outside by the lake (Lake Dora). When I’m not sewing, Jeff and I are on our BMW going from one end of the country and back. You can follow our trips at our little website (in-your-bones.com). All the while I take photos and use them in my shop to sell my bunting and other handmade items. I am always kind to the planet. I am into the 4 R’s Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, and RECYCLE.
