As a boy, crafts and decorating guru Stephen Brown found himself in post-holiday doldrums after every big celebration, but he learned that through crafting for the next upcoming occasion he could

turn those feelings around and literally "Make every day a holiday!"

After working as a costume designer for television and film in New York City, Stephen launched Glitterville, his successful line of giftware and holiday decor. He is the author of Glitterville's new holiday how-to book series and can be seen in Hollywood as a judge on TLC's Craft Wars hosted by Tori Spelling.

Today, the Glitterville brand sparkles brighter than ever with thousands of products, books and television notoriety dedicated to Stephen's whimsical and cheerful design aesthetic. Stephen makes the original piece for most of Glitterville products, then he travels to Asia and Europe to work with local artisans who reproduce his designs using the same techniques he used to create the original. This style of manufacturing insures every Glitterville product truly represents the quality that Stephen desires when he starts designing each piece.

Stephen also loves to share his love of crafting with others, and he's bringing the joy of Glitterville to Denver this September.
