Hi, I’m Michele from Monkey’s Creations. I’m an Air Force veteran, wife, mother, and grandma (monkey is my grandson).
As a nurse and mom, I never had much time to make anything creative. Then I quit my 9-5 nursing job, and found I had too much time on my hands.
Scrolling through Facebook one day, I came across a video of someone making a wreath. I thought, I can do that! Little did I know it has a lot harder than I thought. But I kept making and creating, and finally thought, I CAN DO THIS! And Monkey’s Creations was officially a business.
I love to inspire others, and to think outside the box, there are no limits in creativity.

Hey Friends! I don’t ever find it easy to talk about myself but here’ goes …
I’m Brian (a husband, a dad to 3 children and grandfather!) I grew up riding horses and competing all over USA in the hunter and jumper disciplines, which led to opening my farm Oakvale Ventures in 1994. Oakvale has changed through the years from a training/showing farm, to now just a few horses that my daughter and I compete.
I crafted as a kid with my mom and grandma, helped them set up and sell their creations at local craft shows. The farm and horses moved me away from creating for a long time and my family also developed a Commercial Real Estate company developing and building properties.
Somehow I stumbled across the wreath making community which brought me back to creating. I have only been making wreaths and decor for a little over a year now and I opened my Etsy Shop OakvaleWreathsDecor.Etsy.com in early 2022. Stop by my Facebook page of the same name and say hello!
I love creating horse wreaths as well as farm life inspired wreaths/home decor and helping people add something unique to their homes. Looking forward to meeting more wonderful people in the wreath making community!

Hi I’m Sharon from Sharon’s Door Decor.
I’m a wreath maker, designer, planner, social media manager , financier, & packaging & shipping & handling coordinator too.
I was a one-to-one aide for special needs children for 4 years and then a kindergarten aide for a 1/2 a year before Covid hit. I do miss the little ones but after that, I started to really focus on making wreaths.
Now I run my small business from start to finish everyday full-time. I love feeling creative and coming up with beautiful designs for you all! It’s a lot of work and I’ve completely taken over my small home!
I’m so thankful that my husband supports and encourages me as I try to make my business successful. He’s always telling me, “ it’s ok to buy more, you need to spend money to make money”! Thank god because I shop a lot. 😉
My kids are also very supportive, always helping with my tech questions, all social media advice, and being my videographer too. I hope my friends and family always want to hear more about my wreaths!

My name is Jackie Blewett. I have been making wreaths for over 14 years now. What was once a hobby turned into a part time business in 2012.
For years I was able to keep up the pace of working a full time job, taking care of my daughter, grandfather, and making wreaths part-time. In the spring of 2017 I brought my grandfather home from the hospital to pass and lost him and my job within 5 days.
I was left wondering what I was going to do for a job now. As I sat at my table making a wreath, a light bulb went off, I already have a job. The previous year I had made over $62,000 just making wreaths alone. The best part was I could finally be home for my daughter.
In October of that same year, after my third back surgery, I opened my group Inside Jackie’s Design Studio. I guess this would be the point where I tell you about all the amazing things I have taught my group, but I would rather tell you about how amazing the people are in my group. It’s the things that they have asked me to teach that have made me a better designer and person.
My group has enriched and blessed my life so much, it made me work harder to give back to them everything they had given to me. Every chance that I could possibly get to meet them, I took. It didn’t matter if I was invited to participate in an event, bought a ticket, or hosted the event, I wanted to meet every member of the group that I possibly could.
Over the years I have had 4 back surgeries, a constant battle with Lupus, and most recently been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome. Despite my battles with health issues, I can still make a wreath, sew, and craft.
I have the most amazing support group ever: God, my husband Greg, daughter Tiffany, and friends. Because of them I have done things I have never dreamed of. While my health will prevent me from being multi-millionaire in this business, my health didn’t prevent me from being rich in family and friendships.

Hi. I’m Kathy Dyer and I’ve been in the wreathing community for about 9 years. I started making wreaths after I went to a craft show and saw a beautiful wreath that I had to have. I wanted something pretty on my door for all seasons. Then it occurred to me that to do that and afford it, I would have to make it myself.
Back then, there were not many videos on wreath making. I had to gather as much information as possible, which was trial and error. My first wreath was not good! But I continued to make them and evolve my style. I sold to friends and neighbors and eventually got on Facebook, did lives, and made my hobby a small business. I’ve made and sold well over 1,200 wreaths! I am retired in Florida with my husband Bill and have 3 beautiful grandkids!
