My name is Rachelle. I am a mother to 2 grown sons; 20 and 35 and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren.
I was a 6th grade teacher for 7 years and highly active within the community and my church. I completed higher education at the master level in early childhood and special education. I was told, "I had the heart of a teacher." I loved to educate our young people. God gave me the talent of being a wedding decorator and floral designer.
My journey took a sad turn when I was no longer able to stand and walk. I became physically disabled and had to be cared for each day in my home. Now I am wheelchair bound all day and keeping busy was my goal.
I wanted to be creative keep busy so I took PSP classes [paintshop pro]. I became a tag designer on ning sites.
I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. My passion quickly turned into addiction. By then I had to have more and learn more. Thus, here I am today enjoying my passion as therapy.
My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, shabby chic, clean and simple, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I pay close attention to my design and elements I select for each project. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my designs.
I like creating using various styles:
Clean and Simple
I like majority of the techniques and always trying to learn and create what is the latest and trendy.
God Bless you now and always
