Local Artist Spotlight: Eight29Design

9.30.2014

A few weeks ago, I participated in my first Art Fair; it was a GREAT experience and I’ll tell ya all about it soon! Today, I want to introduce you to a talented local artist I met at the Market; Page of Eight29Design.

Like so many of the talented makers I know, Page is a work from home mom. With the support of her husband, she creates hand painted signs from reclaimed wood. Her signs are well crafted and on trend. I love that many of the signs she paints are inspired by local life here in Michigan.

At the Market, I purchased this sweet sign for Ethan’s nursery -
Handpainted Nursery Art for Modern Boys Nursery

It fits into this gallery perfectly! Modern Baby Boy Nursery Art Gallery DIY tips

Eight29Design also made this great little October 31 sign. It is a beautiful addition to our Halloween mantle!Halloween Mantle with Framed Art and fresh twigs


The local makers community here in Michigan is amazing; so supportive and encouraging! I was thrilled and honored when Page asked me to make custom buntings for her Eight29Design tent and a one of a kind vendors apron for her to wear at her shows. Here’s a peek at the custom pieces I created for her:

I’m thinking of wearing my vendors apron every day, for real. This mumma could use the extra pockets to tote around all the stuff my crew needs/constantly misplaces… would that be too much like a fanny pack?

Check out the Eight29Design shop at Etsy  //  Like ‘em on Facebook for upcoming show dates and please, Tell Page how awesome her work is! Be sure to mention that  Daydream Believers sent ya!
