Using strands of soft, fluffy, natural fibers as her medium, she combines and arranges a rainbow of colors and textures to form an image, much like a painter applies oils to a canvas. Then with a little soap and hot water, these colors meld together to produce a strong piece of fabric that brings to life the myriad of natural landscapes that surround us. Trees, meadows, lakes and mountains - inspiration can be found at every turn.

Hi! My name is Michelle Falardeau. I am an animal lover and the founder of Maizey B.
Maizey B was inspired by my own rescue, and here is my story.
When I was looking to add a four-legged fur baby to my family, fate took over. I was given the opportunity to adopt a dog who was located in a high-kill shelter. I could not help but feel lucky to be permitted to adopt her. This was a match made in heaven.
What began as adding a dog to my family resulted in my launching Maizey B in 2015, a business based around animal themed gifts. I acquired a sewing machine and started sewing dog bandanas. I have since added a wider variety of items to my collections for both animals and humans. From bandanas and bow ties for my four-legged friends to cup cozies and fleece scarves for those of you with two legs.
I have also made it my mission to help others who help animals whenever and wherever I can.
With a mountain of creaivity and copious amounts of imagination, Shirley delved into the world of Steampunk.
Steampunk can be defined as a "retrofuturistic subgenre" of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th century industrial steam-powered machinery.
Once upon a time, Shirley made her debut into the Artisan world as a very talented card designer. Overtime, her small business began the transformation into more of a Steampunk look. This was when her obsession with mixed media grew. Becoming more and more inventive as she perfected her abilities (getting messy was half the fun), her product line evolved into something pretty amazing. Using old, found, or recycled items in combination with items such as machinery gears, beads, metallics, paints and lots of adhesive, Shirley loves to create a little something different with each and every item.
GÂTERIES WOUF BOUF
Made with love, each and every baked treat that comes out of the oven at Gâteries Wouf Bouf, has been created to perfection.
What began as Les Délices Chic, a home-based Cake and Cupcake business for humans transformed into a flourishing baked goods business for a clientele of the canine variety. Realizing that the ingredients in some commercial dog treats were unhealthy and contained preservatives and food dyes, Darleen set out to begin her own bakery. This is where her story began.
After weeks of research and test-baking, Gâteries Wouf Bouf began to roll out the very first batches of dog cookies. Of course, taste testers volunteered to sample each sweet treat. To Darleen's delight, the volunteers helped her to select the best recipes. Today, these cookies and so much more are available for your fur babies.
THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL
Linda Piette & Melanie Duffin
The dynamic duo that make up The Writing's On The Wall are none other than Linda Piette and Melanie Duffin.
Bitten by the crafting bug when Linda took an art class with friends, her love of creating art grew exponentially. It all began around 2014, Linda delved into the world of mixed media. Learning the techniques and applications that she would need allowed her creativity to shine. Taking a leap of faith, Linda then tried her hand at rustic designs. In learning to work with wood allowed her knowledge to expand and she could now overlap the many different mediums to create her very own works of art.
In 2019, Melanie joined this ever growing and ever popular small business. She brought with her a knowledge of all things "crafty." She has an energy and enthusiasm that ignites excitement when they begin their creative process.
Together, the ladies of The Writing's On The Wall continue to design and bring to life not only their own artistic visions, but yours as well.

Her illustrations can be found on a variety of items. From peaceful winter scenes on bookmarks and journal covers to stunning note cards and magnets.
