Maker Monday - Meet Our Newest Member, Megan of Michaels Crafty Momma

We would love to introduce you to our newest vendor, Megan!  We know you are going to love what she brings to the shop.  Lets get to know her a little better...

Megan began creating with resin about six years ago.  She started small, with tumblers and other small projects, experimenting with different colors and techniques, creating unique and eye-catching designs. But as time went on, she began to see the work of other artists who were taking resin art to a whole new level.

Preserving the Beauty of Flowers

One day, Megan came across some resin art pieces that featured preserved flowers. They were absolutely stunning. The flowers, encased in the resin, looked as fresh and vibrant as the day they were picked. She was captivated by the idea of being able to preserve the beauty of flowers in such a unique and lasting way.

Determined to learn this new technique, she embarked on a journey of discovery. She researched different methods and experimented with various approaches until she found the perfect formula for preserving flowers in resin. It wasn't always easy—she had her fair share of failed attempts and sticky situations—but with each mistake, she learned something new.

Custom Work for Weddings and Events

Fast forward to today, and she can proudly say that she can now create custom resin art pieces for weddings and other special events. She works closely with couples to create one-of-a-kind pieces that capture the essence of their love and the beauty of their wedding flowers.

Whether it's a bouquet preserved in a pendant, a centerpiece adorned with delicate petals, or a set of coasters featuring pressed flowers, each piece is a labor of love. She pours her heart and soul into every creation, ensuring that it is not only visually stunning but also a cherished keepsake that will last a lifetime.

A Loft in the Shed

Now, you might be wondering where all this magic happens. Well, let me tell you—She has a loft in her husband's shed. Yes, you heard that right. Her husband, being the supportive and creative soul that he is, built a loft in his shed for her to work in. It's her own little slice of heaven, where she can let her creativity run wild and create resin art pieces that bring joy to others.

Having their own separate spaces allows them to pursue their passions without getting in each other's way. It's a win-win situation, really. He gets his shed, and she gets her loft. And together, they create a harmonious balance of creativity and craftsmanship.

You can now find Megan's creations on the first floor of Ugly Glass & Co.
