I am so excited to share with you one amazing and oh-so-fabulous woman here on the blog. If you don't know Chamel, you should!. She is not only awesome, but one of the most sweetest ladies I have gotten to know! I decided to ask Chamel some questions and of course, she was super sweet to answer all of them.
So I introduce to you Chamel of Chamel's Creations
:::: Getting to know all about Chamel ::::
I have to say, your name is beautiful. How was your name inspired by your parents?
My mother named me after a DJ....yep! I guess she loved their music and the name! LOL I must say that I'm very in tuned with music and dancing.
What got you started in blogging?
I started blogging February 2013 to capture my journey as a woman of God, wife, mother, and entrepreneur. I must admit that I'm still learning about this whole world of blogging and I struggle with being consistent. I've always seen my blog as an extension of my business and a great way to encourage and engage my customers and followers!
My goal is to be transparent and use my time God has given me here to make an impact on others: share my faith journey, encouragement through scripture, and capture my life and business adventures. As I mentioned, I'm not where I would like to be with my blogging but I'm looking forward to learning more and growing in this area!
I have always thought of myself as a creative person and through the years have created many things for myself, family, and friends. So I decided to share my work with others and started Chamel's Creations. My initial business ventures began more as a hobby/part-time selling custom handmade hair bows and accessories while working full-time as an computer engineer. However, it has been a long time heart desire and dream to run my business full-time so that I could spend more time with my family, raise my children, and successfully run my own business that would help my family financially.
In 2011, through the premature birth of my youngest son (25 weeks and 1 lb and 9 ozs), jobless, and a new stay at home mom, God blessed me with the vision to use Chamel's Creations to encourage, inspire, and empower women through His word! So my sewing adventures began and I started my Christian line of products.....I like to say...."handmade for his glory!"
My sideways cross bracelets have been my best selling product and I love how the uniqueness of the hammered cross against the three coordinating silk ropes. A great way to wear and share your faith! Checkout available color options here
In your shop, what would you say is your most favorite item and why?
My new favorite right now are my "Grace & Polka Dots" collection of wristlets! These colorful and functional beauties are great for on the go and to carry all of your must-have accessories! The simplicity of the one word "grace" embellished wristlet reminds you that “[God's] grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” 2 Corinthians 12:9. I must say that these lovely ladies are pretty sweet from the detailed top-stitching, designer polka dot fabric, metal brass YKK zippers, and satin lining! Remind others of God’s grace and be fashionable doing it Grab yours here
When you aren't behind a computer brainstorming your next post or your newest creation, what do you like to do?
I love spending time with my family! I so love waiting for my hubby to get home and showering him with love and seeing my boys run to give him hugs! Many of my days are filled with running behind two little energetic boys (5 and 2) and attempting to not step on toys! I’m an SVU watching (Tuesday marathons), Sprite drinking, and chocolate addict! Besides being creative, I enjoy Zumba or anything related to dancing.
