Mady Sunshine

Ladies, ladies, ladies. I've got to introduce you to one of the artisans that will be at the Spark Handmade Market this year!


Her work is amazing and creative and just plain adorable.  




Hey everyone!  My name is Marci Welcker and I am so excited to be a part of the Spark adventure this year.  I live in a small town in Utah right under the big beautiful mountain that you will all see when you come to Spark.  I have lived here my whole life and have decided that it is where I am meant to be. 


My 3 beautiful girls keep me busy and bring so much spunk and wonderment to my life. I am married to my best friend, who also is my craft show cohort.  We started a little business, Mady Sunshine Stitcheries & Such 10 yrs ago.  My oldest daughter, Mady, and I have stitched our little hearts out while my husband has made wood frames, painted, and put together many a picture. 


We have done shows as far away as The Farm Chicks in Spokane, Washington,which was a dream of mine, and spent time together doing shows in Bear Lake, Utah as well as St. George, Utah at the Dickens Festival.  He recently retired from the craft show circuit and told me he would be happy, however, to help me do one at our little farm, Fallow Field Farm.  So we have had two marketplaces at our house and that has been awesome! 




I recently added some new products to my line-up and am trying my hand at selling a few old things here and there.  I drive a big yellow school bus part-time as a substitute and love to work in my garden.  Plants are my passion....as well as fabric, art journaling, Christy Tomlinson's online courses, scrapbook paper, ephemera, all things old and rusty...the list goes on and on.  I love my life, it's a great one!


I am easily sparked!  I find my creativity mostly shows itself when I am just laying down to go to bed.:D  I am inspired by fabric, blogs, the sky, anything old, wood, color, books, magazines, paper...it comes at the oddest of times and the weirdest things can trigger it.  All I know is I love to use my talents to create things that make people smile.




Marci is giving away a $50 gift certificate to her shop, MadySunshine.com.





Please leave a comment on this post and a winner will be picked at random and announced next Friday.

Happy weekend girls! Do something creative!
