Cupcakes & Creatives is back this month and ready to kick off the Fall season! Join host, Taryn Jerez of One Crafty Miss and Guest Speaker Tabi Falcone of Annabelle Beet for a special night connecting with each other and building a creative community like no other!
September's topic is the The Unapologetic Side Hustle and Tabi is ready to share her perspective of running a successful side hustle while working full time in her career as a senior technical designer for a local corporation, being a mother to her two amazing/crazy little boys and fur babies- oh and having a social life and practicing self care (drinking wine and watching Netflix). Tabi's answering the question, "What if I'm happy having a side hustle?" and how to stop apologizing for not wanting what every #girlboss "should" want. She'll be sharing her secrets for creating her line, launching an art business, managing an online shop and attending craft fairs while maintaining ALL THE THINGS that make up her constantly moving life!
Meet this month's Speaker:
The creative and driving force behind Annabelle Beet, Tabi Falcone, is a coffee loving mom of wild ones, wife to a bearded man, and curator of her rainbow house.
Painting is something I have always enjoyed, but took a break from after I finished college and got settled down with a corporate job, husband, expanding family, and more responsibilities. One night (fueled by wine and sleep deprivation) I threw together a few pun related water color paintings and this business was born. Thankfully my kids love doing art, so I started having more art time with them, which has allowed me to grow my inventory of fun food related paintings.
Since then I have spent a lot of time experimenting and expanding my brand into inspirational and sassy pieces, as well as jewelry and acrylics. I am loving this experimentation and can't wait to see what else comes out of it.
The name Annabelle Beet came after I entered a beet painting into my first art show at our local library. In speaking with one of the librarians, she gushed about my work and mentioned that I should 'write a children's book about eating vegetables, you can name the main character Annabelle Beet or something cute like that!', and I absolutely fell in love with the name.
These paintings have added a lot of fun and joy to my life, and it is my most sincere hope that they do the same for all my customers!
