I had been following Morgan on Instagram before meeting her in person at @thesouthernc. She takes the glamorous side to motherhood next level with her fashion sense, brands she carries, and now her very own labels she has created from scratch.

 I only just met Heather in person last summer as an attendee to our floral workshop, but I have seen her work around for a while. I ADORE the aesthetic and concept. We are excited to get to know Heather more when she comes to our shop as a vendor...

Surely to most of you, Kalin needs no introduction? From someone who considers herself comfortable in her own skin, Kalin blows me out of the water. I have only met Kalin online thus far, but I feel like I've known her forever and that we would have been great cabin...

I first came across Elizabeth's work at LaFontsee Gallery in Grand Rapids when I used to live there. It sucked me in immediately! It reminded me of one of my favorite artist's Fairfield Porter with a feminine twist. Serene with great color, and I've always wanted to learn how to...
