Maker Monday: Meet Carla Foster, Carson Bryce Trading Company

Maker Monday: Meet Carla Foster, Carson Bryce Trading Company

Today’s Maker Monday is extra special because we had the chance to catch up with Carla Foster of Carson Bryce Trading Company.

Fun fact: Carla was our first-ever artisan partner back in 2013 and we have carried her Atlanta Love, formerly named White Peach Vanilla, soap since. She creates some of the most divine smelling bath & body products.

Find out more about this lovely maker below.

1. Who is the inspiration behind "Carson Bryce Trading Company"?
Carson Bryce Trading Co. Is inspired by my infant son of the same name. Carson Bryce Johnson lived for 30 days. He was born premature. It remains the most traumatic event of my life. However, his life lives on in such a bigger way. Everything I do and make is in his honor.

2. How have your product creations helped you over the past several years?
Making products is a healing process for me. I feel my son encouraging me every step of the way. My process of creating is rooted in the love I have for him and my other son Chancellor Troy Johnson. Everything I make is rooted in love!!!!

3. What has been your all-time favorite type of product to make and why?
Hard to choose. So much of Carson Bryce Trading Company is also curating antiques and found goods for the home. I adore that as well. I love making soap and candles but I also live making sugar scrubs. Lip balms and body butter. Bath bombs i make with Chance. That's really fun!!!

4. What are some new scents/products we may see in 2022?
I recently debuted my healing energy and big money energy soaps. Omg!!! Divine I tell you. Divine!!! I am also working on the most scrumptious body butter evah! By Spring it will be done. Can't wait to share it!!!

You can order your very own bar of Atlanta love soap by Carson Bryce Trading Company on our website, georgiacrafted.com.

Maker Monday: Meet Briana Carson, Crave Pie Studio

Maker Monday: Meet Briana Carson, Crave Pie Studio

Who doesn't love pie?! We are big fans of this delicious dessert especially when it comes from Crave Pie. On this Maker Monday, we caught up with Briana Carson of Crave Pie Studio to find out more about how she became a pie master and what flavors she loves most. 

  1. When did you start on your journey of pie-baking? I began baking pies in 2010 after being laid off from my 20 year corporate job.  I attended culinary school to begin a new chapter in life, and had to bake an apple pie for the Baking 101 final.  I fell in love with the craft, and more importantly, with how pies make people feel.  I dropped out of school to pursue pie baking as a full time business and opened my first location in 2012.
  2. What is your all-time favorite pie? That depends on the season! Spring: Strawberry Rhubarb; Summer: Peach; Fall: Roasted Pumpkin and Winter: Spiced Cranberry Apple Pear with Walnut Streusel.  I guess fruit pies are my favorite!
  3. Can you give us a sneak preview into some new flavors that may be coming out in 2022? We are always developing new pie recipes that showcase our Georgia grown pecans, peaches and blueberries.  Our menu of specials changes daily and with the seasons.
  4. What do you love to do for fun (besides bake delicious pies)? I love shopping at farmers markets and attending art festivals. I also enjoy cooking and dining.  
  5. If someone isn't familiar with Crave Pie, where can they go (besides Georgia Crafted) to get their hands on a delicious pie? We have two physical stores: 3107 Main Street, Duluth and 360 Commerce Street in Alpharetta City Center.  Both locations are in walkable retail/dining destinations. Custom orders can be placed online at cravepie.com.  You can follow us online and check out our daily specials menus at @cravepie on Facebook and Instagram.
