What inspires me...

 "It is up to you to see the beauty of everyday things." This quote really encompasses my inspiration. I like to make useful things that are also beautiful. After all, if we use it often, shouldn't it also bring us joy? 

My medium...

 I'm currently working with my sewing machine a lot. I prefer to sew cotton, flannel, and fleece. I also enjoy making beaded jewelry, working with sculpey clay, and painting on a miniature scale .

On a personal note...

 

My father taught me that nothing in life is too big to conquer... 

You can always eat the elephant, you just have to do it one bite at a time.

What inspires me

 When I was a little girl, my family had a big backyard with a slope that was perfect for tumbling down. I loved doing somersaults down that hill or simply lying upside-down on it and viewing the yard from a new vantage point. It's fun to see how the world changes when you just tilt it a bit! My designs are inspired by fun and whimsy, and I hope you'll come play with me. 

My medium

 I think *everything* has crafting potential, but I love working with fun print fabrics, polymer clay, and grosgrain ribbon! I love a challenge, so custom work is my jam..

On a personal note....

 When I’m not sewing, sculping, or crafting, I’m working my very satisfying day job in nonprofit communications. Crafting is a way for me to squirrel away extra cash for my daughter’s eventual college education, so when you make a purchase, you’re helping my­­­ family in a very real way!

John Hutton

What inspires me...

  

I enjoy creating items that make people happy.

Be it a personalized miniature for a Role-playing Game. Customizing the game pieces of a board game. Or creating a custom diorama that has personal meaning between two friends. I am honored to be a craftsman that can help create personalized gifts to share with others. 

My medium...

 Miniature figure painting, dioramas and graphic arts in general including Photography and Illustration. I love working on the details of a project to give each piece that 'wow' factor.

On a personal note...

I stopped drawing/painting back in 1997 I wasn't very good and I didn't seem to progress. In 2008 I was in a long work meeting. At the end of the meeting I notice my handout was covered in doodles. That is when I decided that art would be a hobby for me. About a year later I rediscovered miniature painting and I continue onward creating and learning.

Deborah Camp

What inspires me...

  

Great writers, artists, and musicians…creative people worldwide doing brilliant things. I’m inspired daily by global diversity in all of its persuasions, and how cultures are articulated by art, words and music.

My medium...

  

My keyboard, and a vast library of books! I write pet-themed material for articles and a monthly pet column, which is sometimes distilled into quotes for my framed artwork. More often, I draw upon the works—prayers and poems—of people ranging from Abraham Lincoln to St. Francis of Assisi to come up with just the right artistic quotes to charm, amuse and fill the heart of animal lovers and pet guardians.

On a personal note...

I thrive on creativity and learning new things. There are never enough hours in the day to learn and do everything I want!

Sweet Southern Soap USA

What inspires me...

  

I have a servant’s heart. I strive to help others feel good about themselves. My inspiration for this product started with someone very close to me that suffered from a skin condition that she could not find any relief from. One day she tried Goat Milk Soap. She had tried every over the counter moisturizer with no relief, however; Goat Milk Soap quickly became the only product that gave her total relief and satisfaction. So I began researching how to develop and produce this product for her. After two years of R&D I perfected the formula and she now lives a happy life because she is not suffering from chronic dry and bumpy skin. So I turned this venture into helping others that suffer from skin conditions as well as those that just want a high moisturizing soap without all of the harsh commercialized chemical filled products that are on the market. 

My medium...

  

 I currently use 7 basic ingredients (palm oil, coconut oil, castor oil, Shea butter, sodium hydroxide, distilled water, and titanium dioxide (for color) to produce my high moisturizing Goat Milk Soap. I produce all of my soaps in my home in order to control cost which enables me to offer my soap at a very affordable price to anyone who is looking for relief or soft skin with a great fragrance.  

On a personal note...

 The only person who can keep you from being successful is you. If you have a desire to do something, then don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way from being successful in life.
