Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: SWEET SERAPHINA

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.

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!

Spring 2012 Vendor Feature: SWEET SERAPHINA

Sweet Seraphina
shop | facebook

I hail from both an art and business background where school was concerned, so creating Sweet Seraphina in 2010 was a natural transition for me. She has been a whirlwind ever since and always keeps me busy and constantly creating (and working!).

My shop features everything your little one needs to make them the most stylish kid on the block, from personalized bibs and burp cloths to tie onesies, pacifier clips, football bloomers and blankets to snuggle up with. I am so passionate about Sweet Seraphina and can’t wait to see how far she goes!

Get To Know Lindsay of Sweet Seraphina

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Currently obsessed with “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monae.  O b s e s s e d.

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? “Whoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”  Vincent van Gogh

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Current obsession is Lucky Charms. Channeling the 8 year old in me.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? In another life, I think I was a cake decorator. I would love to learn how to decorate cakes. If only there was enough time in the day!

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? I have ADD when it comes to crafting. I always want to try new things as the ideas come, so I would say nothing! I need to always be trying something new.

What are you most looking forward to about the Spring Homespun Chic Marketplace? This is my first craft show and am excited to interact with potential customers and hear their feedback on my creations. Also excited to meet other vendors that can understand my crafting obsession!

What’s your favorite thing about summer in Florida? When the flowers are blooming and you just feel happy to be outside because the weather is spectacular and everything is beautiful.

What’s the last great movie you saw? Book you read? Kind of cliche at the moment, but my last obsession was the Hunger Games trilogy. A friend turned me on to them before it became uber popular.

Dwight Howard: should he stay or should he go? Who that? Just kidding… I have no opinion where sports are concerned =)

Holiday 2011 Vendor Feature: PAPERLY

Paperly
shop

I am so excited to introduce Paperly to the Central Florida area. Since I was a little girl, I’ve been passionate about stationery. Yep, I was the girl who had dozens of different writing paper and note cards – my stationery was an extension of my wardrobe! While I may have grown older, my passion for fantastic stationery designs hasn’t changed and it has now extended to a passion for strengthening personal connections. Paperly offers me the perfect opportunity to bring these two passions together.  Paperly offers a wide variety of designs – fun or formal, feminine or kid-friendly – to express just the right sentiment. And we are much more than paper…our personalized gifts are perfect for any occasion. Holidays, Family and Friends, Teachers, Coaches…whatever your need, I can help you find the perfect unique and memorable gift!

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Superwoman – Alicia Keys (it’s my Mom theme song!)

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses?  I collect quotes, so this is really hard!  Favorite quote is “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right… and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” — Marilyn Monroe

Favorite Bible Verse – Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? Spending time with my husband Stephen, two daughters (Stephanie, age 8 and Gracie, age 4) and Rascal, our Cocker Spaniel; shopping; reading

Yours Truly
blog

Hello there! I’m Anna Pryor and I can’t wait to meet you at the Homespun Holiday Market! I’m thankful for sunshine, my husband, and my family. I’m inspired by anything that makes me smile – and I find that there’s a whole lot to smile about!

My shop features stationary and paper goods of my hand-painted watercolor illustrations. I think mailing someone a thoughtful handwritten letter is one of the warmest and kindest ways of showing how much you care.

Also this holiday I’ll be featuring some other items that make wonderful gifts! Fish print note pads make a great gift for fathers and uncles and I’ll have some lovely lavender filled sachets for the ladies!

Besides crafting, what are other things you like to do? I love to garden! Weeding, pruning and planting soothes my soul to no end! Gardening also inspires a lot of my illustrations. I love painting flowers and foliage.

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition? My husband and I buy unique assorted beers and wrap them up in brown bags. On Christmas day after lunch we pass them out to everyone and the whole family gathers around the fire to enjoy new brew flavors. Drink and be merry right? Grown up Christmas is fun!
