More for You Monday Giveaway-Underground Vintage Studios!

I get really excited when Monday rolls around and I can showcase a wonderful handmade business. Today's guest is Darby with Underground Vintage Studio (you have seen some of her products on Casey's blog).
Darby and my sister Megan are the crafty, vintagey girls in their area of Illinois, which is how I've gotten to know Darby. Not only is she gorgeous, but she is insanely talented. I can see it run through her veins. Love how she adores vintage and crafties, and how she often ties the two together.

Let's hear more about Darby's journey...did you know she works FULL time, is a momma, and runs Underground Vintage Studio?From Darby: All of my life I have loved creating. I grew up crafting and gained my love of sewing from my Grandma. I was raised by parents who had a love of all things old and had many collections. I spent my childhood going to antique shows, flea markets, junk shops, and garage sales and it comes as no surprise that I still love doing those things and am now bringing my own daughter along for the ride.

For quite a few years I had really gotten away from crafting and it wasn't until I drug out my trusty old sewing machine to make a handmade gift for a friend that I realized how much I had missed it. Over the next few months I was sewing like crazy and soon realized that I could turn this love of creating into a business. It became apparent that it was time to invest in myself and make time to do something that I love. I now spend my days balancing motherhood, a full time job, and a full time side gig making some fabulous goods for your pleasure. I share my studio space with a super cool little girl who takes crafting to a whole new level for me. We love rocking the glitter, glue, buttons, and anything else to embelish our crafty goods! I have a passion for repurposing vintage textiles and books into fabulous goods for you and your home.

It seems as though each new week holds exciting things for my future and I am so thankful that I have regained my sense of "craftiness" and am doing something that I love. I am blessed to have such a wonderful group of people that continue to support me and ride along on my adventure.

aren't these ornaments fab? i bought them. :)
