A Punkin Card Company is paper, stationery, and life. Started in February 2007 by Amie Needham, a Houston area artist and designer, the collection emerged as simple card creations to enhance one's life. Soon the collection rocked into the modern realm of bold colors and fun, retro patterns. All the while taking Amie Needham's designs to the next level. In the Fall/Winter '09 issue of Brides Houston Magazine!

Enchanted Photo Design
My signature style with Enchanted Photodesign offers a luminous, ethereal view of a widely diverse array of subjects, from personal portraits to hard-edged urban views, from wildflowers to vivid graffiti. Far more than a business name, Enchanted Photodesign describes my approach to photography itself, a highly characteristic expression of my worldview, which creates a unique and immediately recognizable body of work.
Cammie's Handmade Soaps
All natural, handmade designer soap bars with great designs and scents. Also, exfoliating sugar scrubs and wonderfully scented body and linen sprays. Don't miss Shampooch, my all natural dog flea shampoo bar, and SCRAM!, my all natural insect repellent.
I work with a medley of mediums to make jewelry. I create a diverse range of body art to give the client a variety of opportunities to experience the beauty and satisfaction that can come from body ornamentation. My favorite medium to use is polymer clay. It allows me to make dramatic statement pieces that are wearable art. Many of these pieces incorporate beads that I have also handcrafted. These are my favorite pieces of jewelry to create. These pieces require a good deal of confidence to wear by the owner because they will wear you if you don't wear it like you "own it". These pieces have attitude! I also make pieces that are more conservative and whisper confidence.

I create dichroic glass jewelry of all kinds; pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings. My newest collection of jewelry is hand etched dichroic glass ... small canvases of wearable art.

Artist and potter John Delafield makes a wide range of wheel thrown stoneware pottery
using rich earthtone clay and glazes designed for everyday use.
I'm an artist from Holland and have a passion for giving a message through my art.
I paint in a post-impressionistic style using vivid colors, thick application of paint,
distinctive, vibrant brush strokes, real-life subject matter and use of unnatural arbitrary color.
KnottyByNature Designs features handmade, one-of-a-kind wood pendants, rings and
painted wood blocks from Houston artist Erin Bordenave.
Art Clay is my primary medium. It starts out as small lumps of gray clay and kiln or torch fires into pure silver.
Although I do make molds from antique buttons and jewelry, many of my pieces are one of a kind incorporating
semi-precious stones, copper, brass, or other metals like corborundum and titanium.
Due to a slight tendency toward masochism, I sometimes make my own silver chains incorporating chain maille patterns.

Colorfly Studio Art by Jennifer DeDonato
I love paper! My technique is all about paper! I enjoy the simple hands-on techniques that is considered “old school” today and simply consists of paper, scissors and adhesive (yep, that’s pretty much it). I have a Ooh La La collection of paper that inspires me and cutting freehand is my thing. I also like vintage matchbooks and antique print letters. I use old discarded matchbooks and give them a second life. All my matchbook designs are created with the same “technical” way my paper designs are…you guessed it, scissors and adhesive.

vibrant colored acrylics to create beautiful paintings on canvas with varied floral and botanical themes suitable for any décor.
I create contemporary furniture, wall sculptures and other decorative items out of wood.
When the design calls for it stone and metal accents are used. Most of my current work contains
curved and shaped elements that draw the eye and create a sense of movement. My works are created
using mostly traditional woodworking and power carving techniques but I will use any technique
that will help me execute my ideas.
