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.

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Penny on the Train Track by Ben Kweller

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

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition? When I was little, my grandmother used to send me an advent calender every year for Christmas. Ever since then, I have always enjoyed picking out a new calender.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would LOVE to learn how to crochet.

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Slow Like Honey by Fiona Apple

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. – Marianne Williamson

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? Cooking! Playing Angry Birds. Relaxing with family. Reading. Dancing.


Visit A Flavored Life and see what you have to look forward to at the Homespun Chic Holiday Marketplace on Sunday, December 4.
