House of Ra - Cara

Interesting, high quality, unusual accessories for the interesting unique lady. My designs illustrate that the rough and unusual can be just as elegant as the highly polished stone. The bags capture a playful, bohemian spirit and are made of genuine leather. Everything is made from high quality stones and leather just for you in my Miami, FL studio. As a Dayton, OH native I'm excited to share my products with you at Not Your Mama's Craft Market.

Touch The Edge Studios - Anita Haines

My family and I are excited to be a part of the upcoming Not Your Mama’s Holiday Craft Market.
"Touch The Edge Studios" has come together as a true family effort of sharing our love of all things creative by using our artistic talents and gifts to inspire, encourage and enrich our lives as well as the lives of others.
It combines all of our family member’s creative endeavors; My "Stamp With Anita" part of the studio focuses on creating, teaching and selling hand stamped cards, papercrafts and products. Along with the creative efforts of the rest of the family we've added studio classes, mixed media art, painting, unique handcrafted and re-purposed wood and furniture items. The products we offer have evolved as each of us have grown artistically.
The appreciation and love of the visual arts, music, dance, written word and theatrical performance have always been a part of our family's life. It's brought much love, joy, friendship and even healing. Our desire is to offer beautiful inspiring pieces that bring joy and touch the lives of others in a special way. We would be honored to have one of our pieces find it's way into your home and look forward to seeing you at the show.
Blessings, The Haines Family

Chelsea - Glitteracy

Hey there!
First of all I'm so excited to be a part of Not Your Mama's Holiday Craft Market this year for the first time. Due to also being an elementary Art Teacher creating watercolors has become a hobby of mine to continue making art of my own. When decorating my own apartment, I began to think about what kinds of artwork I would want to hang that were special and also narrative.
My work consists of silhouettes of all kinds filled with watercolors left on their own to swirl and come together to create an image. Creating an abstract artwork held together with a single image is beautiful in its simplicity.
Recently, I have delved into creating artworks that show my love for my hometown in Columbus, Ohio! Born and raised here, I have always been drawn to showing love for my city and thought why not show that love visually for all the other CBUS lovers out there! I've gotten a lot of interest and am really taking off with new ideas as well as revisiting the same images again to paint them in a ever changing color schemes!
I can't wait to share my work with you over the Thanksgiving Break that is creeping up on us! Thank you for your time!
614 Love,

Helena Demacopoulos and Li Cai of Addie's Pup-Cessories

Hi! My name is Helena Demacopoulos and I’m the founder of Addie’s Pup-Cessories, a fun line of unique, hand-sewn pet accessories. I am 22 years old and a recent graduate of The Ohio State University, where I met my close friend and business partner, Li Cai. Also an animal lover, Li volunteered to assist me with sewing and has since become a core part of the business, specializing in production. Although Addie’s Pup-Cessories was launched very recently, we are very excited to grow and expand in the Columbus area and meet other pet parents who share our passion for animals.
Addie is my 4-year-old shih tzu and is the inspiration behind the business. Addie was adopted from the Franklin County Animal Shelter during my junior year at Ohio State and has become my closest friend. Li also has a pet - ​a rescue cat named Puddin, whom he acquired very recently. In honor of our furry best friends, we will be donating 10% of our earnings to the Franklin County Animal Shelter’s ‘Friends of the Shelter’ program to help the sick and injured shelter pets. To learn more about the program and how you can help the animals, please visit for more information.
Addie’s Pup-Cessories specializes in hand-sewn pet products, including collars, leashes, harnesses, bandanas, ties, and more. We use quality materials and unique patterns to create fun, durable products that both you and your pet will love. We are happy to accept custom orders, and you can personalize any of our products by adding your pet’s name or some bling. Stop by to visit us at the show for an even bigger selection of pet accessories. We look forward to meeting you!

Pennant collects used vinyl banners and retired signage to construct beautifully unique, bags and purses. We repurpose these materials and change them from something industrial and temporary into a useful and loved belonging.
Every bag is handmade and unique. We love experimenting and creating new uses for potential refuse. Vinyl is not an easy material to work with, but it is durable, tough, water resistant and an exciting challenge.
We have come up with several bag shapes, sizes and uses and are thinking about more every day.

SPONSOR Brittaini Pulver of Long Mountain Art

My name is Brittaini Pulver and I make custom burned silk screens for the DIY enthusiast! My screens are inexpensive and are directed toward the very small business owner, hobbyist and crafter! Its very easy to silk screen and you can pretty much print on anything you can think of! Most common uses are of course t-shirts, art, polymer clay, pottery, glass, and anything else you can imagine! I really enjoy providing a service for others to get creative.
When I started out I was actually printing on organic onesies and tshirts inspired by my son, Santiago. After I had my daughter, Adelina I realized I didnt have the time to devote to going to arts and craft shows and needed something I could do from home. An etsy blog about how to increase sales actually gave me the idea because one of the suggestions was to provide a service or product that most people can't or don't want to do themselves. I thought, "Hey, I can make silk screens for people to do own printing!" and so I kept the name and changed the product.
Im originally born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan and came to Columbus for college at Capital University. After graduating in 2002 with a degree in Art Education I started working for Columbus City Schools. I currently work at Beechcroft High School and enjoy teaching Ceramics the most! My partner Aaron and I just celebrated the birth of our third child, Cayo in October. I feel lucky that I can have a family, a career and a side business that I can still feel creative in.

Patrick of Painted Patchwork

The goal of this is to let you into my world for just a little bit. It’s hard for me to express why I do what I do. I know that my art isn't the type of art that is going to change the world. If I can spark interest and conversation among those that enjoy my pieces, that makes it worth it for me. For me it’s a need! I wake up every morning and I need to create. It drives me, it consumes me and it is my passion. Conceptualizing an idea, growing it, watching it flourish and then stepping back and looking at something that was only previously a thought, is the best feeling in the world to me. I love the feeling of free handing a line from start to finish, the way the blade sounds against wood, and the smell of that freshly cut wood. I love matching colors to create different moods, cutting patterns to create texture and giving my illustrations life.
I create images that are multilayer, expressing texture with each different layer. I take great care in choosing patterns and matching them with the right image. I use a combination of vintage maps, wood, ink and spray paint. I create my own canvases and frames using new and reclaimed wood. I like to be present in every step of the creative process and from this I form a connection with each piece. Everything I do has a piece of me in it and I am so glad when I get to share that with other people. "All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day, put the pieces back together my way" - Aesop Rock
