The First Day of Artsy

So how did Artsy come into being?

Brunswick’s own Carrie Sullivan of Sheabella Tutus, having participated in similar evening events in Boston, knew the concept would work in Brunswick. Carrie sat down to coffee with Heidi Boyd of Heidi Boyd Designs and together they made the commitment to bring Artsy Affair to reality. The two enlisted the help of event planner, Amanda Similien of Maine Street Events, who has been the key to creating Artsy’s success. They have been so impressed and inspired by the creative talent in the Mid-Coast Maine area, and thrilled by the amazing reception and support of the local community to this unique handmade marketplace!

The Inn at Brunswick Station in Brunswick, Maine is the host of this year’s Artsy Affair. This festive evening provides a unique opportunity to shop for cool, locally-crafted items, grab a delicious bite at the Tavern and relax with drink by the Inn’s cozy fire.
Each day leading up to Artsy Affair you will meet some of the talented artists joining us the year.

The Twelve Days of Artsy
On the FIRST DAY of ARTS…meet Sheabella Tutus and Heidi Boyd Design

Sheabella Tutus features "handmade twirls for little girls" – tutus in a rainbow of colors and designs! Dress-up fun abounds with Sheabella’s mermaid tails, wands, crowns, aprons and (yummy) necklaces, as well as the popular flower rings (crafted by Shea herself) – a great stocking stuffer!

Heidi Boyd is the author of more than a dozen craft books, her latest Stitched Whimsy has just been released. Along with a selection of her books, Heidi will be filling her display with adorable sewn toys, a selection of handcrafted jewelry, and painted reclaimed wood creations she makes with her husband Jon. She’s especially excited to debut her new line of Whimsy Kits at Artsy. Sweet little felt stitching kits that make it easy to create your own little softie.

Tune in tomorrow for more Artsy Affair Designs from our Holiday Marketplace participants!
