The One with the Junk Art Gypsyz Feature!!!

I am soooooo excited about what we have going today! Thank you so much for joining me. Before we get started on this week feature I wanted to announce who won the Twine & Tape Giveaway!!!


Congrats to 5 little chickens!!!! Please email me at shannanoelatgmaildotcom for your prize pack! :) 




Shop 

When I was at the Renegade Craft Fair a couple weeks ago with my husband, we both fell in love with this adorable booth. It was filled with re-claimed treasures, painted wood signs, metal marquee letters and arrows, REALLY I felt like the booth was MADE for me!!! On top of all the the owner - Chandra- was one of the sweetest people I have ever met! We walked through the rest of the fair with are ampersand tucked under our arm and nearly EVERY person who saw us asked where we got that, and how could they get one!!! I knew you all would love my find as well which is exactly why I asked Chandra to join us today! :) 








These JunkArtGypsyz are just a couple of moms that have been friends since the old High School days that started junkn, then craftn, then design'n, and from there it snow balled in to these fun, funky lighted Marquee Signz In JUne 2012.  I am doing things that I have never before done in my life (I sat behind a desk and ran a company for most of my 20's and part of my 30's), I would have NEVER in a million years thought that using drills, sanders,, cutting machines and being covered in dust and paint head to toe on a daily basis would be my DREAM career path.  I truly count my blessings daily that we have been able to turn our creativity in to a career!  Anjanette is an artist in the true sense of the word, she grew up using tools with her dad and doesn't get why just the mere sound of a power saw makes me jump (those things can take a hand off!)  Anjanette truly is the most amazing artist (though she doesn't think so) she just blows me away on the custom logos and designz she comes up with and executes for our clients. 

What is your most popular item? Our Most popular items are our letters, the metal ampersand just like yours and arrows!  The marquees make such a fun statement from baby rooms to bathrooms!





What is your personal favorite pieces of all time?Hmmmm I would I have to say our lil Piggy & Cupcake, they have been with us since the beginning and I think they just have so much personality!



You have such an eye for color and design, can you tell us a bit about your creative process? What inspires you? How do you stay so on trend?  We both have a different style that we bring to our JuNk; I am more inspired by old, vintage, industrial, shabby designs where Anjanette goes with the clean lines, bright art, bohemian flavor.  We get most of our ideas from flea markets, garage sales, and magazines.

What trends do you see being popular as we head into fall and winter?  Recycled and Up-cycled is really in for furniture and home furnishings.  This autumn I see raw materials being used like sticks, branches, stumps, with rusty reds / oranges with a POP of gold finishes for a more elegant look.




Thank you so much Junk Art Gypsyz for sharing a little bit here about your process and your favorite items! Make sure to check out their site, and follow them on social media (listed above!) As a special gift to my blog readers Junk Art Gypsyz is giving ONE LUCKY READER an ARROW MARQUEE!!!! How awesome is that?!

  2. Hi Shanna! OOOH I love this giveaway! What I really love about fall is decorating my home with DIY wall art. I know im silly. I love cutting out images and framing them. Most importantly I love when all my kids are at my dinner table. The fall season brings us closer. We share funny moments of when they where younger. I hate that they are growing up but I love who they are becoming. I now have two young adults! Crazy! Thanks for letting me REMINISCE! have a beautiful day!

  6. Awesome giveaway - thanks for the chance! I love your ampersand. What I love most about fall is the cool weather which can't come fast enough - it's 96 degrees here in Santa Barbara today. Ugh.

  7. Oh my Lordy, I've been waiting for this!!!!!! As soon as I saw the Ampersand on your Instagram, I've been itching to have one as well. I could only wish to have the talent to make these myself but alas lol. Thank you so much to the ladies and yourself for this generous giveaway :).

    Fall is one of my favourite seasons (apart from Summer of course!). Although I quite like my flip flops, I also love my knits, the possibility of layers, flannel, turkey and the smell of those neighbourhood fireplaces (I live in Canada).

    Good luck to everyone!

  13. Fall is.. Crunching leaves, shades of amber and gold in the vineyards, the smell of the first fireplace being lit, pulling out gloves and scarves, and mayyyyybe a pumpkin spice latte or two. ;-)

  14. What a great shop with amazing products!!! What a sweet giveaway, too!!!

    I love Fall- I love the colors (I think I buy most of my clothes in the fall because I love the colors!!). I love Pumpkins and pumpkin flavored anything! I love the spices that come to play- cinnamon, all-spice, cloves, etc.....for some reason, they are everywhere this time of year. I love Honeycrisp apples. I just love the transition from hot summer to cooler temps (not so much in Texas, though) and then to cold winters. I love scarves! Fall is my favorite...hands down!

  15. I love pumpkin spice lattes. Yup. My favorite thing about fall

  16. My favorite thing about fall is the crisp, cool air. It makes me get my sweaters and long sleeve t-shirts, coats and scarves out and get to bundle up a bit-- it makes the leaves dry out and crunch in a satisfying way when you walk on them -- and it makes people have fires in their fireplaces -- I love that smell coming from the chimney. And it also makes me able to drink Chai Lattes and Hot Apple Cider, which I really don't want in the hot summer. I love fall, it's my favorite season.

    Very cool products!! Thanks for the chance to win! :)
