Alexa, the creator behind Foamy Water, is returning to Urban Craft Uprising this December with old favorites and new creations in tow!
UCU: Pick a song that gets you in creative mood or you think would make a great addition to a "UCU Winter 2010 Soundtrack".
Alexa: Patrick Park "Something Pretty" or a semi-Holiday addition Guster "Donde este Santa Claus?"
UCU: What’s one thing you wish you had known at your first craft show?
Alexa: Winter 2009 was my first craft show and I wish I had taken advantage of the Friday load-in (amongst many other Freshman missteps). I'm really excited to mark my one-year anniversary doing craft shows to see just how far I've come.
UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!
Alexa: Sadly not pets :(
UCU: What item are you most excited to be offering at UCU Winter 2010?
Alexa: I have scaled down my original "constellation" necklace design and will have a collection of "petite constellations" available at UCU.
UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
UCU: What gift are you most excited to give this year?
Alexa: I am included in the 2011 CRAVE Seattle Guidebook, so all my ladies will be getting a copy.
UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
Alexa: I'm a tea drinker. I love when its cold enough to drink tea all day long. I just tried Flying Botanical's Red Chai. Yum!
UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
Alexa: I have a thing for pug dogs. Having said that, my friend Jamie knit a hat for me and stitched a felt pug face on it complete with heart-shaped buttons for eyes. It is my absolute favorite handmade item I have ever received!
