I just love being awesome.
It’s hard though. Being awesome, that is. I mean, I’m a designer and a color fiend, but also am a reformed musician and mom… this basically means I’m really creative, have a really messy house, and know who all the hot guys are on Nikolodeon (score!). I love creating, crafting and I try to inject personality into all my projects. I am a firm believer in making each wedding, event or party unique to those throwing it, and the best way to do that is through the details!
After marrying Hubber I started my business, Chantal Claire Collections. Like many other brides, I posted my own DIY wedding invitation online and to my surprise I received lots of positive feedback and requests from other brides. When my company downsized a few months later and I found myself out of work, Hubber and I decided to give this creative side project a real go. I lost my job on Wednesday morning, we launched that afternoon, and on Friday the largest national industry magazine called to interview me for their latest issue. I realized very quickly that pursuing my creativity was the right choice for me. It’s funny how things work out sometimes, isn’t it?
A few years later I had my babies, the Divine Miss A and the Kamikaze Kid, and decided to be a full time mom while they were at home. During that time we relocated to a different country – goodbye Canada, hello US of America! and have settled in. Now that the kiddletons are both in school and I’m all green carded up, I have jumped back into creative work full force. I paint, decorate my house and help make your wedding or other event truly personal and beautiful. I hope you’ll check me out at www.chantalclaire.com.
