Tara has been working on the shrines since her dad's death about 7 years ago. It started with a couple of fabric boxes in remembrance of him and grew from there. Now she likes creating little stories about the people in the pictures that she uses when she creates. Most of the people are family members long past. She also uses various religious icons and symbols in her work.

Diane and Madeline Tompkins
"Tag Team Tompkins" spent time this summer developing some of their first 2-color work to be printed by Skylab Letterpress. They have tried to keep the simplicity of their early black on white work, but have added some color accents. A few of the original designs appeared in Better Homes and Gardens Halloween special interest magazine recently. Debbie Dusenberry, of Curious Sofa, produced this 10 page spread in her amazingly creative fashion. They were honored to be included in her "Mad Tea Party" feature.

Tabitha and her husband Brandon get creative together to make screenprinted pillows and onesies. Each design is original and screen printed by hand with lots of time and love. Once designs are crafted, much time is spent mixing emulsion and ink colors, cutting fabrics, drying screens, burning impressions, pulling the ink, and sewing the final products! Tabitha also began sewing clutches recently, and she is always looking for new ways to expand her creativity! This is the couple's first year as a Crafty Chick, and they look forward to finding homes and bodies for their unique designs.
Sharon Milleret and June Brock
You never know what these two chicks will be bringing for the show. They have the most wonderful antiques and pre-owned treasures. To round it all off, June adds to the mix charming ornaments that were created using small antique butter molds. Come by and see what they have new this year!
