MADISON – For the Madison Street Festival, Mavis Butts and Jessica Butts-Harrell with Mother Daughter Crafts will help shoppers to personalize their homes in a customized motif.

“I’m the mother half of Mother Daughter Crafts,” Mavis said. “My daughter Jessica is the business entrepreneur and the other half. Our business was started from a love for crafting.”

Mother Daughter Crafts offers a large supply of handmade products, including wreaths. “Our initial letters are our largest line,” Mavis said.

They buy top-choice, premium hardwood from home improvement centers, hand cut the custom letters with a jig saw, sand the letters and then embellish. The mother/daughter team complete each piece by hand and seal the items for hanging on a wall or door.

“We are looking forward to Madison Street Festival to share our products in this area,” Mavis said.

They have made the business a family affair by including Mavis’ husband Eric Butts and Jessica’s husband Ben Harrell, who both have experience in woodworking. “Jessica, Ben and Eric all have full-time jobs but still find the time to help me create our line of products,” Mavis said.

Throughout her life, Mavis has been interested in creating crafts. “But I haven’t had the time before to devote full time to crafting on the scale as now,” she said.

“I’ve never considered myself as an artist, although crafting is an art,” Mavis said. “I feel I am blessed in being more of a crafter. When you purchase our products, you are buying a piece of our hearts.”

“God has given us the talent and ability. We consider it a blessing to share our products with others. It is our ‘ministry,’ if you please,” she said.

Mother Daughter Crafts attends numerous craft shows around Birmingham, South Alabama, at the “Calico Fort” in Fort Deposit and “Santuck” in Wetumpka.

A job opportunity with a major defense contractor brought Mavis’ family to Madison eight years ago.
