Hi! My name is Amanda, I am the mother of four beautiful children. The youngest of which is my only little girl and I LOVE to dress her up! Recently we have discovered how much fun we can have with tutus and I learned to make them.  It has quickly developed from a new love, into a hobby, into a small business making custom tutus for friends and family.  I hope you love them as much as I do!

Spring 2012 Vendor Feature: Saee Designs

Hi there. It’s Tiffany Brassard of Saee Designs and Emma’s Pettis. I have included three photos–one is my family: my inspiration and my reasons for needing a hobby. LOL! And I included a picture of my jewelry display and one of my pettis in action!

I started making jewelry about 8 years ago when I saw a necklace in a movie and really, really wanted it. I found it online for $175. So I found the stones and I made it! An obsession was born. I am a stay at home mom and making jewelry and sewing has saved me (and maybe my kids). I love creating new and unique pieces. Almost every piece is one of a kind. You can find me sitting at my work table several times throughout the day making whatever creation is fighting to get out of my head. I have a relationship with every piece I make. I find myself utterly surprised when certain pieces don’t sell as soon as I list them.

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Alphabet Pony ~ The Kills

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? “Be nice, for everyone that you meet is fighting a harder battle” – Anita Roddick

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Sour Cream and Onion pringles

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? ~ Is there anything else? Umm…hate to be cliche but when I get freetime from crafting I hang with my kids. 

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Metal smithing

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? Creating a foundation for non-surgical scoliosis treatments.

What are you most looking forward to about this Spring’s Homespun Chic Marketplace? Hanging out with Amy whilst doing something other than a WOD!

What’s your favorite Central Florida Food Truck? I have never eaten from one :/

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? Jo-Ann’s Count? No, well then I guess it’s Epcot.

Holiday 2011 Vendor Feature: DALLA LUNA

Dalla Luna
shop | blog

Hi! *waves* I’m Crystal, a SAHM to two.  I grew up watching my mom create amazing things but never made anything of my own until my daughter was born. My daughter no longer lets me dress her up but I still like creating fun outfits during holidays & special occasions, and you’ll find some of these creations in my Etsy store! I am also an avid reader & review books on my blog, Reading Between the Wines, which led to creating hand-beaded bookmarks & jewelry. I love being inspired by a great book to create something fun!

Get To Know Crystal of Dalla Luna

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Well, I don’t have an iPod but I have other fun devices! Lol My #1 song right now is Staind “Not Again.”

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? As I said above, I am an avid reader and I run my own book blog which is more time consuming then I originally thought LoL! I review the books I read but also have authors drop by almost daily, run weekly features and giveaways, and I love being able to read the books I am anticipating most before they even get on store shelves!

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to learn how to make my own soap!

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition? Loading up the kids in the car to see the live nativity scene a local church does every year.
