Hi! I’m Chanti (pronounced Shan-tay), Visual Storyteller for Completely Crafty by Chanti.
I am a wife and proud mom of four adult children. I love making things for people and seeing the smile on their faces when they know it was handmade with love. My colleagues would always anticipate what I would be making them for Christmas and I couldn’t wait to start planning for the next year.
I always decorated my office door for all holidays and a colleague said, ” I would love to have one of your wreaths for Christmas.” We happened to be a a staff meeting and others starting to chime in that they wanted one too. I know I couldn’t make 28 large wreaths, so I made mini ones instead. My oldest son saw my production and said, “why are you selling these? ” Owning a wreath making business was never my plan. I have sold real estate part time for over 15 years and that is where I saw my life headed.
In 2019, with the encouragement from my husband and oldest soon I started researching and watching videos on wreath making. I happened to be recovering from foot surgery so I had some time on my hands. Fast forward to 2020, the world was turned upside down and I really needed an outlet. I started making more wreaths, joined few creative and business groups and the rest…it’s just beginning.
I am blessed and thankful to have met such wonderful people in the crafting community. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my talent and look forward to what is next.
