In case you are unfamiliar with this line, Lilly Pulitzer is an international fashion brand that is known for its tropical prints and colors. Lilly Pulitzer, a socialite turned designer, was the creator of this line. She never intended to be a fashion designer, but similar to a crafter she made her first tropical shift dress out of necessity. She created the dress while working at a juice stand. The vibrant colors and tropical fruits were cleverly chosen to hide any juice stains she would get on herself, while tending the juice stand.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your site Handmade Charlotte. How long have you been crafting and when did you start Handmade Charlotte?
I’m a mother to five wildly talented children who invent things and inspire me everyday. My husband and I were married 15 years ago in a tiny courthouse outside of Atlanta, and we didn’t tell anyone. Some people call that eloping Handmade Charlotte went live in 2009 and we’ve been in a love affair with our audience ever since. I’m a child of the 70′s and the craft explosion that wrapped that era hit my mother hard. I grew up with candle making, basket weaving, pottery, and knitting. I’ve crafted my entire life!
