Maker Monday: Meet Jana

Behind every successful person, there’s a wingman.   Someone who sees the vision and believes in it, and is right there by your side, willing to help make it happen.   Someone who doesn’t want the spotlight on them, and often times cringes at the thought of it.   That person for me is Jana. […]

Maker Monday: Meet Beth

Who is this rock star? When I first heard of “Beth Costello” I was working on some Women’s Ministry social events at my church that involved scrapbooking.  This was back in 2006 or 2007?   I kept hearing about the fabulous scrapbook pages this gal was coming up with.  And let me tell you, Beth’s […]

Maker Monday: Meet Kailey

After opening Plume in November 2013 and surviving my first Christmas season I started learning more about what customers were looking for in a little shop like mine.   While my original vision was to mainly have locally repurposed painted furniture and home decor, it became clear that my customers were also looking for, and […]

Maker Monday: Meet Brooke & Nick

Brooke & Nick Bartlett first met on a blind date.  According to Brooke, it didn’t go so well, but eventually they hit it off.   You can probably tell by looking at these pictures what a joyful, fun-loving and quirky couple they are.   I have so enjoyed getting to know them. I don’t know […]

Maker Monday: Meet Lacy

Meet Lacy Stroessner, the creator and maker behind Madre Beads.   When I first met her in 2007 she was Lacy Donaldson, bright-eyed college girl on her way to becoming a teacher.

Maker Monday: Meet Brady

Remember that blog post a few weeks back where I posted about how I decided to open Plume?  All those mom’s on Facebook I was buying stuff from?   Meet Brady…she was one of those moms.   Who knew that me buying my kiddos a couple of capes would lead to such a friendship and sweet partnership.

Maker Monday: Meet Tia

When Tia Berg was a little girl in Blue Springs, MO she wanted to be an orthodontist.  (It’s no wonder she has such a beautiful smile.)   But in 10th grade she met Ms. Schnakenberg, one of her high school teachers, a Chemical Engineer and Mizzou grad.  Tia took science classes from her for three […]

Maker Monday: Meet Carrie & Connie

Meet the girls of Sew Darn Stitchin’, Connie Miller & Carrie Brixey…a mother-daughter traveling sewing sensation. …and their vintage 1972 Shasta Camper “Tillie”…pulled along by “Susian”, a 1964 International Travelall.   Have you ever seen anything so stinkin’ cool and adorable?  Did you even know vintage camping was a thing?  The girls even dress the part.  Every […]

Maker Monday: Meet Dari & Mike

There is so much to say about these two…where do I start? Dari Cranford was one of the very first people I met when I moved to Columbia in 2005.   We had been attending The Crossing Church {back when it was in RBHS} and in September of that year, I felt spurred for the […]

Maker Monday: Meet Chris

I hope your Monday has been the best start to your week.  I’m finally sitting down for the day to relax, let my fingers do the talking and tell you about my friend and maker Chris Creasy.   I remember the first time I met Chris.   She was one of my earliest customers in […]
