Artist Spotlight: Gina Marquis

Written by: Kaitlyn

Every few months, The Crybaby Club creates a Subscription Box featuring a large amount of creatives that have made something special just for our members. (The next box just went on sale in our shop for a discounted price! Pick one up before they're all gone!) A huge part of this club is supporting other women and artists. This is one step we can take to do just that. 

As we are putting together our next batch of boxes, I wanted to introduce you to our featured artists and tell their stories. 

Our first artist is the eager and lovable Gina Marquis, a knitter and crocheter that creates her adorable goods from her living room. 

Gina stumbled across The Crybaby Club on Instagram and instantly fell in love. 

"This is a great group of women who promote other women to just be themselves in a world full of people trying to to tell others to fit into ridiculous standards," Gina said. 

Gina believes that it's important to be comfortable with your own emotions because that's when you can truly understand who you are. 

"You're human. We all have emotions," Gina said. "Whether or not others let their emotions show doesn't dictate if they have them." She said that holding your emotions in hinders your ability to live life to the fullest. 

Gina quickly became involved in the club and started creating her own special items for our next subscription box. 

For the box, Gina created crying fox head pins because she adores foxes and embraces tears. She crotched the backs and created the felt foxes herself."Wear these little fox tears on your sleeve, by your heart, or on a bag. Just don't be afraid to wear them!" 

Even though it's easier said than done sometimes, Gina hopes to have more time this year to create patterns for all the items she currently sells in her shop. 

 

 

 

Crybaby Bio: 

What She Created: 

Felt fox patches

What Makes Her Cry: 

Disney movies (especially The Fox and the Hound), body image, life-goals, daily struggles

Her Message to Fellow Crybabies: 

It's okay to be emotional about anything you want! Don't let other make you feel bad for being yourself. Life's too short to pretend you're someone else to the world.
