Crafter Highlight - Charla!

We do pull this boutique together, but we also love to put our own creations into the show! Charla is an amazing artist who not only does plenty of her own artwork, but has been teaching art classes in her home and in local elementary schools for for many, many years. She does the funnest custom watercolor family portraits you'll ever see. Her home includes a great studio in the works complete with easels, paints, clay, glazes, pottery wheels, kilns, etc. with a cat or two or three keeping watch at all times. For our boutique she does hand-painted Christmas plates that literally fly out of the show in the first few minutes every year. People come specifically to add them to their collections. This year's aren't ready for picture-taking just yet. She also does beautiful watercolor note cards
that any one would be proud to send. She also creates wonderfully whimsical Christmas ornaments, traditional nativities and more. Aside from being so incredibly talented, she's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet!
