Lisa Jameson of Redheaded ArtiTude is excited to be participating in the Crafty Chicks Show for the first time this year. Lisa comes from a scrapbooking background and has always wanted to try another medium. Inspired by an art store sales clerk's suggestion to try mixed media since ANYTHING goes, Lisa was on her way to creating art where even your mistakes are cool!
Lisa now spends weekends at garage sales or thrift stores seeking items to paint. Her evenings are spent in the studio painting her finds with bright colors, big-eyed whimsy and a tad of folk art flair. You can find out more about Lisa and her artwork on her facebook page or her blog.

Bootheel Gourds is a family endeavor. Father, Ted Brogden, a farmer for over 60 years, grows all of the gourds for the business in the bootheel of Missouri. Daughter Alicia Thomas and brother John Brogden help with the harvest, clean the gourds, then create wonderful birdhouses, feeders, ornaments, and more.
This is Bootheel Gourds' third year in a growing business and second year at Crafty Chicks.
