Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Stacie Bloomfield. I am 25 and I live in Springdale, Arkansas with my mathematician husband, Nathan, and our 3-year-old girl, Violet. I am expecting my second daughter, Lucy, any day now! My husband and I grew up in Springfield, Missouri. We met when we were 11, got married when we were 20, and moved to Arkansas four years ago so my husband could work on his PhD. I am a former Starbucks coffee shop manager, a full-time momma, a part-time artist, and a constant doodler.

Apart from creating things, what do you do?
Currently I work as an Administrative Support Supervisor at the local university. Sounds fancy, but I really do a smattering of clerical work.

I am also the design editor for La Petite Magazine, a lovely quarterly online children’s magazine. My degree is in design and fine art, so I get to use a bit of my graphics background for this gig.

I live a happy, simple life. I love to upholster furniture, drink coffee with friends, go on walks with my family, and cut my husband’s hair! And perhaps I watch a lot of television….maybe too much?

I also write daily on my personal blog, GingiberSnap, where I document my life, work process, and artistic inspiration.

What would be the title of your memoir? Why?
Caffeinated: The Story of a Girl, Her French Press, and a To-Do List That Never Ends! I tend to spread myself rather thin, moving from project to project. I like to squeeze as much productivity out of every day possible. Relaxing is not my strong suit, and my possible dependence on coffee doesn’t help matters much!

Where does your inspiration come from?
Usually my best ideas come when I am not thinking about anything in particular. I love to doodle on the margins of notebooks and on napkins in restaurants. I do my best work when an idea materializes rather quickly. More inspiration: simple color palettes, geometric patterns (especially quilt patterns) and my offbeat family!

What does handmade mean to you?
Handmade objects are the product of time and love. I love receiving handmade gifts and purchasing handmade items for people, because the artists that created them have poured little pieces of themselves into every detail.

Who has been most influential in your craft?
My husband is 100% my biggest support. He instills me with confidence when I am feeling overwhelmed. He makes time in his busy schedule to watch our daughter so that I can sneak away and work on my art, even though he is still pursuing his PhD. I feel like we are “Team Bloomfield” and he is the unseen partner in Gingiber.

When did you know you were an artist/maker?
I’ve known I was an artist since I was a little kid. Growing up, my parents would give me crayons and a piece of paper and I would sit quietly for hours! I was hand-sewing clothing for my dolls when I was 7 and drawing my own little comic strips when I was 9. Being an artist is all I’ve ever wanted.

How would you describe your creative process?
Creatively, I do my best work when I don’t put pressure on myself. I am constantly drawing and thinking of new product ideas. Sometimes I get a decent idea and just run with it! I’d say the majority of the illustrations I create never make it into the shop, but it’s the practice of constantly drawing that keeps me feeling fresh!

If you could peek inside the studio of any artist, designer or craftsman (dead or alive), who would it be?
I’m not a painter, but I am pretty smitten with the work of Fairfield Porter. I love his use of color, especially when depicting landscapes and portraits! I would love to see what his studio looked like.

What handmade possession do you most cherish?
Can I borrow something from my husband? He has a quilt that his grandmother made for him as a child. It has been used and loved so much! I love that it is still his favorite blanket, even with its stains and small rips. Now my daughter likes to snuggle in it, too!

How do you get out of your creative ruts?
Oh, I agonize a bit. Then I try to do something just for me, like cooking a new recipe or rearranging a room. A lot of times I find being around other creative people pulls me out of a rut!

Where would you like to be in ten years?
Are health and happiness specific enough? All I want is for my family to be still pursuing their dreams. Ideally my husband would be a math professor at a university and perhaps I could be pursuing Gingiber on a full-time basis! I’d love to have a few more kids, and be living in a bigger city. (Portland sounds just lovely!)

    Congrats on the feature and on your new little girl too! I bought one of your prints ages ago and sometimes it's really lovely to read the story of the maker behind the piece even after it's been hanging on the walls for months! I still love the print as much as on the day I bought it. Good luck with the shop and your gorgeous family in future.

    thebuttercupbasket said 5 years ago

    I love how you said that your inspiration comes when you're not really focused on anything in particular. I always find that when I am recreating an item for a customer that my mind fills with new designs and color combinations. I think for myself, jotting down new ideas as they come is a great way to keep things fresh. Enjoyed your interview:)
