Alaina’s Mosaics Give Away

This giveaway is now over. Please enjoy reading our reviews!

 

Jennifer Knowles is very proud of her daughter Alaina, who is currently a Freshman at South Burlington High School.

She should be proud! Just two and a half years ago Alaina’s creativity and love for art prompted this mother daughter team to open Alaina’s Mosaics. It all started with two parrots and a porcupine and has wildly expanded.

Alaina’s mosaic art pieces have turned into cards, books, and bags. She started selling them at church craft fairs, farmer’s markets, and at the beCAUSE Craft Show. Alaina donated proceeds from her sales at the beCAUSE Craft Show to a 10 year old family friend who was saving for a therapy dog.

The cards that I received from Jennifer and Alaina are bright, colorful, whimsical, and fun! My nieces and nephews will love to find them in their mailbox. They are not only great pieces of art, but they are inspiring to young artists!

Last year Alaina teamed up with the Vermont Clothing Company to produce her “Veggie Bag“. Alaina’s veggie bags are traveling around the world and staying connected via Facebook.

From Jennifer, “In the summer 2012 she {Alaina} won a postcard contest sponsored by Burlington City Arts and her postcards were given away at Vermont Welcome Centers”. I love this postcard she created:

Alaina has a big heart and gives a percentage of the sales of her cards to Irene flood relief in Vermont.

This busy teenage entrepreneur is also an avid skier and is a member of the Dance Team. She sounds like one of the coolest teenagers in Vermont!

  4. The tractor card stands out for me… we have three boys in the next-door Kindergarten who wear this symbol on their matching t’shirts, and it’s so adorable!!
