Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: AUTUMN & EVERYTHING AFTER

Autumn & Everything After
shop

Kasey is the creative brain behind Autumn & Everything After. You may have heard of people refer to her as “The Burlap Lady.” All of her items are great for accessorizing any home, office, party or fun-loving girl! She creates fun, one-of-a-kind accessories for all seasons, event and occasions. From hand-painted banners and burlap pillows to chic tote bags and yarn wreaths, you are sure to find something to love.

Autumn & Everything After officially started when Kasey began posting pictures of her personal seasonal home decor on Facebook. Her friends (and their friends) fell in love and asked her how much she was selling the beauties for. With much coercion from her friends, she opened her Etsy shop. Autumn & Everything After has been featured at all five Homespun Chic Marketplace events and she’s looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, December 9.

Get To Know Kasey of Autumn & Everything After

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? “Learn the scripture, love the author, live and die for both.”

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Popcorn & M&M’s with a Diet Coke.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I am a huge fan of blogs, however I, myself am not a blogger.  My favorite day is Thursday because that is when one of my all time favorite blogs (www.theshabbycreekcottage.com) has a linky party.  I love seeing what other projects fellow “crafters” are working on.  I also admit I have a slight obsession with Pinterest.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would like to learn how to do graphic design and maybe take a course in Adobe Illustrator.

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? I’d love to finish my gallery wall in my house…I have it all “pinned out”…I just need to make it happen.  I’d also like to make a pendant light made out of burlap.

What are you most looking forward to about the Homespun Chic Holiday Marketplace? Meeting other vendors and checking out all the other great items that will be showcased this year. I am also looking forward to another new venue.

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? Does Hobby Lobby count?

What’s something you’ve done that you think no other vendor has done? I have painted an entire wall in my home office with black chalkboard paint.  I thought, I will either love it or hate it.  If I love it then its worth the leap, if I hate it, its nothing that 10 coats of primer can’t fix.

Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: SWEET SERAPHINA

Sweet Seraphina
shop | facebook

183535_285824378190646_51819755_nAs a kid, my little hands and mind were always busy. You could often find me in my room cutting butterflies and ladybugs out of cardboard and painting them, or creating collages and gluing them to walls, tables, doors, or anything else that stood still.

Things aren’t much different now. My hands are always busy and it kills me to sit still most of the time. I love creating things that bring a smile to people’s faces or just make the world a bit prettier. I love making things for children because it is a genre of retail that everyone always seem to be so happy in, whether they are buying for their own children or for a friend’s.

Sweet Seraphina was created in 2010 and I can’t wait to see how far she goes! You can find Sweet Seraphina creations in Tugboat & the Bird in Winter Park, FL and probably hundreds of babies and kids around the world!

Get To Know Lindsay of Sweet Seraphina

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Ellie Goulding – “Anything Could Happen”. Love her!

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? Probably children’s headbands. Kinda obsessed with them at the moment. Next month it will probably be a new obsession!

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Probably some sort of cereal w/ milk. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten this breakfast food at breakfast time. It’s usually a 3am snack.

What’s something you’ve done that you think no other vendor has done? I think my versatility is something different. From graphic design of onesie stickers to feather headbands or bibs, I liked to always try something new and different to keep myself motivated and creative.

Omoo Rose
shop | facebook

Omoo Rose is a shop that has a story. Omoo and Rose were shopkeepers grandmas. One a city girl dressed to with pearls on to sit at home all day and the other farm girl who could make something out of nothing. Omoo Rose is a fusion of them both. Every item I make is a story they told me when I was little or a memory I have with them.  I only make one of every item. Not one item is the same, just like everyone in this world. Everyday it’s important to write your story. Enjoy life and enjoy what you do. And be sure color is involved everyday.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? If I could learn how to do anything it would be how to stay up 24 hours a day.  I really think I would be good at it. LOL.

Spring 2012 Vendor Feature: ADDY&TABBY

Addy&Tabby
shop | facebook

Addy&Tabby is a collection of custom, handmade, unique & stylish girls clothing. My pieces are modern, sassy, sometimes a little funky and very fun. I am the sole owner of Addy&Tabby and create each and every piece with love and care.

A year and a half ago I decided to leave my job in corporate America as a web designer and pursue my passion. I was no stranger to a sewing machine but I had never sewn children’s clothing before. I was terrified and thrilled all at the same time! Its been a wonderful journey to get to where I am today. I’ve met so many amazing and inspiring people along the way…. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Get To Know Dawn of Addy & Tabby

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Anything Adele. 🙂

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Ice cold green tea, I tend to drink a LOT when I’m working.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?  I enjoy so many forms of art, but dance has a special place in my heart. I attend many performances by the Orlando Ballet through the year. I can’t wait to see Black Swan in a few weeks!

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I’m a homebody. I love to work out in the yard and decorate my home. I follow Ana White, she is a furniture DIYer, and I’ve got a very long to-do list!

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? My kids’ rooms. They have elaborate bedroom themes selected and completing them is going to take quite a bit of time, not to mention a lot of mommy’s crafting and decorating skills. It would be amazing to just devote my time for the next year to their spaces!
