You are never too old to start a new adventure – in life or in business!

Meet Debbie

What if I told you I never owned my own business or made an apron in my life until I turned 45 and hadn’t sewn since I was in high school! Three months after quitting my corporate IT job, I was bored and asking myself, is this all there is?! I needed something to challenge me and give me a purpose to get out of bed every day.

I loved the business and creative side of my previous jobs. I just didn’t love the long and grueling hours, time spent away from my husband and 4 kids, and the lack of flexibility to pursue other interests and travel with my husband.

Thus began my search for a new business venture, something to keep me from shopping online too much–a bad tendency when I’m bored! I started a photography business where I learned to use a camera and later did freelance graphic design for paper scrapbook companies where I learned Photoshop and Illustrator — all self-taught. All of this before I started Creative Chics making aprons.

But friends, the most important thing I’ve learned is that everything I have done up to this point in my life has given me the skills needed to successfully run my own business. Skills that came from raising 4 kids while working full time and managing a household.

Bottom line, we all have skills and creative gifts we’ve been given or learned. And if you have a desire to learn, I am here to help you put your creative talents to use in a way that financially blesses you and your family. I can’t wait to see what you can accomplish!
