We walked into the light and airy studio of Rosa Clifford (featured on The Martha Stewart Show and Tampa Bay’s Daytimeand though the morning was slightly overcast, I don’t think we could’ve felt any warmer, the room any brighter. What amount of sun that shone through the misty clouds, poured into her large west facing windows and the light sparkled off of her racks of glitter and pretty, dainty things. We were there to capture a tutorial for one of her beautiful handcrafted cards, of which orders come to her from across the globe, for Martha Stewart’s The Craft Dept. blog… and we left her studio feeling like we’d just had lunch with a dear friend. Although, yeah, lunch with a dear friend happened, because that’s just the kind of person Rosa is––a great hostess, an inspirational artist, a caring mother, a dear friend and a good cook too.

Take a look at our totally crafty and smile-inducing shoot, and then visit Rosa at her online shop… though I will say, mind your wallets, because I left the shoot with an order of my favorite pieces of art.

On second thought, don’t worry about having to save up for the perfect pieces, you can easily score your own, and at a great price too!
