Hello everyone! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my company. I am Michele Bischof and I am 31. I married my best friend on May 15th, 2016 in Winter Park, Florida. My husband’s name is Tim Bischof and he is also 31. We have known each other since middle school but did not start dating until 2012. He has an amazing job with ESPN where he travels to game locations and sets up and produces audio for the audience watching from home. As for me, I was a manager of a successful salon called Great Clips where I also cut hair. I worked for Great Clips for 15 years. I loved my job, my coworkers, and my clients. I became a mommy in Novemeber 2016, his name is Timothy and he is my pride and joy. He has these beautiful big eyes and lips and always smiling. I love kissing all over his cute face! Once Timothy was born, my husband and I decided it was best for our family for me to leave my job and stay home with our son. It was a very difficult decision for me because I loved my job, but with the night and weekend requirements that come with the cosmetology career and a husband who travels a lot, staying home was the only option for us. Although I had to give up my career, I love being able to stay home with my son and watch him develop into this amazing little person. While enjoying staying home, I discovered a machine called Cricut that cuts everything, paper, vinyl, foam, leather, you name it and it probably cuts it! I decided to start with paper because it was a cheap material, if I messed up it would be a cheap loss. My first project was a bachelorette banner for my sister in law. Everyone loved it and encouraged me to start an Etsy business doing party decorations. I started my Etsy page in March 2017, with the same banner I made for my sister in law. After 2 days on the market, I got my first sale and a sale every week after that. I started receiving 5 star reviews on my Etsy page with very nice compliments from my customer that said they loved my banner, great quality, bride loved the banner, etc. The positive reviews gave me the motivation and confidence to fully invest into the business I created Chele B Creations, and create more banners for my Etsy shop. As I gain confidence in operating my Cricut machine, I am trying other materials for other products like wooden signs and shirts. I am excited to see how far I can go with this business and the cool new creations I create with my Cricut. In the mean time, I am sticking with custom party decorations as my main product until I gain the confidence to move into other areas of the business. I created this blog to show case my work and to help inspire others who are starting a crafting business. I love crafting and running a business so I thought I would start a blog in hopes of motivating and inspiring other crafters. I love helping others with their craft projects or starting a craft business so please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am glad to help. I also love receiving feedback on my posts and projects. it helps me develop and grow so I am open to any suggestions or feedback you may have. you can email me at chelebcreations@gmail.com Thank you so much for your support and following me! Happy Crafting!
