Hey y’all, I’m Michele Reding from Monkey’s Creations.
I’ve been married for 29 years and I have 2 children, 23 and 24, and a 3 year old grandson who’s the LOVE of my life!
I served in the United States Air Force for 7 years as a nurse. Was deployed to England to serve in Desert Shield/Storm. Those 7 years shaped the rest of my life, and I would do it all over again. I have lived in many places, but moved back to Texas 16 years ago, and we’re not leaving!!!
I quit my 9-5 nursing job 2 years ago, but knew I had to do something to keep busy. So after a few months I happen to come across a video of someone making a wreath, and decided right then that’s what I wanted to do. So last November I started making wreaths for family and friends, not as a business but just to stay busy and have fun. One day a friend said, you need to start selling these, I laughed...but after some coaxing I officially started my business at the end of January 2018. What a roller coaster it’s been, and I love every minute of it.
I started seeing these roses popping up everywhere. I thought, I’m not jumping on that bandwagon. But the more I saw, the more I knew I had to make one. I ordered the boards and the tutorial from Unique in the Creek, and have been making them every since. These boards are so amazing, and you can do so many things with them. So have fun, create, enjoy and think outside the box!
My comments: Michele and I hit it off right from the get-go! She reminds me of myself alot and I think that is why we get along so well. We have never met but chat a lot with messages and I know she has my back! Michele is a FABULOUS wreath maker and I really Love the way she comes up with such different ideas to use with our boards! I know that Michele is definitely going to make a name for herself in the wreathing industry and I am glad to call her my friend Y'all ;)
