There are some days when things just fall into place. I was so star struck when I met the co-owner of Raised In Cotton that I could barely talk! And to think that she will be the guest speaker for our event in September is really so exciting for me!
Carol is passionate about encouraging women to embrace their dreams and live creatively. Yes…one of my passions as well! Her Dream*Create*Shine mantra could not be more fitting for The Gathering.
Please enjoy her bio and by all means subscribe to her blog, be inspired & come and meet her at The Gathering!
Growing up on her families farm in Arkansas, Carol Spinski learned the
beautiful art of arranging every day elements to enhance her surroundings.
A talent for design assembly was forged from those early childhood
experiences on the family farm which echo’s in the work she does today.
Carol’s career path as a Photographer and Editorial Stylist has been a
natural progression that has allowed her to share her inspiration with
others. She is the co-owner of
Raised In Cotton, a business featuring Home
Decor and Event Styling in a century old farmhouse just outside of Kansas
City, Missouri. Carol’s signature style is romantically atmospheric,
multilayered and textural, flavored with the vintage aesthetic she adores.
She and her work
have been featured in Artful Blogging, Somerset Life,
Somerset Life Calendars, Romantic Country Magazine, Romantic Homes
Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, Kansas City Homes and
Gardens and Spaces Magazine
. Most recently the circa 1865 farmhouse
that she and her husband decorated and renovated was in the book
Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O’Neill. Her upcoming projects include a
collaboration with Matthew Mead that will be featured in the Winter 2012
Holiday With Matthew Mead.
