Meet Lauren Phifer of Mustard Seed Bowtique. Lauren makes adorable infant and child headbands and accessories.
How long have you been creating your art? A few months
What are you favorite colors to work with? I love them all!
How do you find inspiration? Through my daughters.
What time of day do your creative juices get going? That all depends on my two beautiful girls.
Do you listen to anything why you create, or do you prefer peace and quiet? I normally hear the sound of cartoons in the background.
Is there a special meaning behind your work? I am a stay at home mom and student. I wanted to find something to do while still being able to spend as much time with my girls as possible.
Do you create with an end product in mind, or do you just see where creativity leads? I like to create holiday and collegiate headbands the most. However, I love being able to make a custom headband!
Has your work been featured anywhere? No
