Mimosa :: Handmade Holiday Vendor Feature!
How cute is this Yeti!?! You can find him amongst robots, penguins, hedgehogs and other original illustrations on cards, prints, onesies and tees at Mimosa's booth at Handmade Holiday.
Here's a little bit more about Mimosa...
Describe your studio. Holly: It looks remarkably like a cluttered bedroom! Ariel: Part studio, part music room, part laundry room.
What is your favorite thing about the Holidays?
Ariel: Driving around checking out Christmas lights with my daughter.
Holly: Baking with my family, and walking home with our children and our Christmas tree in the cold night.
What's your newest crafty creation? Is there specific item you'd like to feature for the show?
Ariel: Yeti! He's super fuzzy and sweet and lives in a little snowglobe. Available on organic onesies and tees, and letterpress cards on cotton paper, all printed in Richmond!
Is there a story behind your shop name?
Holly: I love the way italian mimosas smell, and I wanted something from nature. Plus, to be named after a fantastic cocktail doesn't hurt either.
What's your soundtrack while you're working?
Holly: Public Radio or the Moth Podcast.
Ariel: Lately, Avett Brothers and Decemberists. But looking forward to cranking up the holiday music!
What are your influences?
Holly: I am a sucker for cute. I love modern art, folk art, Scandinavian design. I love Wayne Thiebaud and Charley Harper, and I am really into vintage children's illustration. And my favorite color is rainbow.
