Interview and Giveaway With Enchanted Cupboard

Comments on this post are now closed.


This week’s giveaway is coming from Beccijo of The Enchanted Cupboard. Let’s take a peek into her magical world and get to know her a little better.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am a passionate artist who loves to be creative with toys. I am a work-at-home-mom who homeschools my 4 children while running The Enchanted Cupboard. My family now lives in a small town in Central PA. We are enjoying the country life and all it has to offer. This year we also opened a store in town with the same name as my etsy shop, The Enchanted Cupboard.

What inspires your creations?
My own childhood inspired many of my beginning series of toys like The Fairy Ring, and Mermaid Tales. I had a large imagination as a child and am a lucky adult who never lost it. As I started to create more items, my kids inspired me with what they like to pretend and how they liked to do hands on learning. Over the last 3 years I have added many wonderful items in my shop. This past year I have worked on adding many educational toys as well as adventure toys that appeal specifically to boys although any child can enjoy them.

What are your favorite materials to use?
I love working with wood but my first love is painting. I put a lot of details into my work, each item is it’s own work of art. I have started working with material and felt as well as needle felting as a way to expand my playsets.

How do you balance your family life with creating?
Living in balance is always a goal for each day, but not always something that happens. Some days I need to work more and other days the family needs me and I don’t get to the studio. Being okay with both is the really key to keeping it all working smoothly. I am very organized and love the process of keeping everything “just so.” This year I am working on simplifying my life and house… It is a work in process. Every box of items that goes to charity brings a freeing feeling to my soul.

When did you start creating and how do you encourage children’s creativity?
I have always created things and can’t remember a time I was not doing so. When I was 8 yrs. old I took 4 boxes that were the same size and stacked them with tape. My mother got me an outdated book of wallpaper samples and carpet samples. In no time I had made the best Barbie house! I used recycled items as furniture and house accessories. From there I moved on to making smaller versions out of cigar boxes. My mother really loved to feed my creative side. I loved working with different media but always had a passion for painting.

I want to give that same opportunity to my children so, like my mother I make sure I offer lots of encouragement and support for my kids creativity. I keep lots of art and craft supplies as well as recycled items for my kids. My husband gives the children the scrap parts from cutting out my creations, I love seeing what they turn them into! I keep everything in the kids reach so they can get to it with little help. This also keeps my day running smoothly and my kids happily engaged in activities. We are a very creative family!
