This week’s spotlight feature is Rebecca who is an amazingly talented woman! Not only is she the brains and creativity behind Corks and Colors Studio, she also designs and creates hand painted wine glasses in her Etsy Shop Wine Glass Chic! I had Rebecca tell me a bit about herself.
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m a wifey, a mommy of two, a craft-a-holic and business owner. My free time is spent thinking of ways to decorate wine glasses and how to expand my art studio, Corks & Colors Studio. I’m originally from Costa Rica, but Gainesville is my home in the U.S. I also work full time as a job coach for individuals with disabilities. Although I am always crazy busy getting everything done, I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t change it for a second.
- What got you started in your business?
I really wanted to offer hand decorated wine glasses at my studio. I started a Birthday giveaway where we give a free wine glass if you come to the studio to celebrate your birthday. As I looked for wholesale vendors to supply the glasses, I decided to give it a shot myself. I started painting wine glasses and then I saw the option of using vinyl to decorate them. So, now I make our own glasses to give away and I also sell on etsy for bridal, team fan, birthday or any special occasion. Our bridal collection is one of my faves because it makes for the perfect gift for your wedding party. I love that I can customize names, bridesmaid dress colors and titles. We even have mustache beer mugs for the groomsmen!
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have three things what would they be?
My family, sunglasses and an ice cold jug of margarita mix (the one with tequila already in it!) Might as well make a vacation of it
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years I see myself working solely for my business. I hope to expand my studio to other areas and in different ways, so I expect to be making a lot of Happy Birthday wine glasses! I also hope to have my bridal collections sold through Bridal Boutiques.
Tell us about what you are giving away:
I’m giving away a hand decorated Bride-to-be Wine wine glass. It is very shabby chic, with a cute wedding dress on a hanger surrounded with accent swirls. There is nothing more exciting than waiting for the day you say “I do” and as you wait you can sip from your super cute glass! I’m also offering $1 off each glass ordered during the giveaway. You can contact me through etsy and I’ll create a custom listing for you including your discount.
Isn’t this glass adorable?!
