take great pride in the items that I create,
and I want each and every customer
to love their creation as much as
I love making them. ~ Crystal ~
it all began
name is Crystal and I discovered my love for art when I was
just 9 years old. You could say that God took a very difficult
situation and through that, the seeds for Crystal's Creations
I was just in 4th grade, Doctors discovered a mass on the
membrane of my heart . While everyone else went on Christmas
vacation, I went to Children's hospital, to undergo surgery
and have the mass removed.
all parents know, it's pretty difficult to keep a 9 year old
entertained when they are confined to a bed for over a week.
I had always loved to color and draw, but during my hospital
stay, I discovered that I actually had a talent and a deeper
love for art.
spending the week drawing my favorite cartoon characters and
other "masterpieces", I told my parents that I wanted
to be an artist
.my love has grown from there.
began studying Graphic Design at Auburn University in 1998.
It was through this program that I discovered a way to meld
my artistic abilities with the fields of Marketing and Advertising.
In 2002 I received my degree from the School of Business at
Auburn and continue to find a way to mix my passion for art
throughout my professional career. It was a very exciting
and productive time for me as I spread my wings and took flight,
sharing my enthusiasm, energy and artistic finesse with each
job I held.
the love of my life, my daughter Addison, turned 3 however,
I realized I needed to make a change for myself and my family.
This was a time I knew I couldn't miss, so I quit corporate
America and came home to be a full-time mother and wife.
began to paint, create wreaths and other home decor for friends
and family for extra income and after their encouragement
and support, took the plunge to turn my "little hobby
I enjoy so much" into Crystal's Creations.
truly am living the best of both worlds as I am here every
day to see my daughter thrive and grow alongside my own art-driven
business. I take great pride in the items that I create, and
I want each and every custom to love their creation as much
as I love making them.
wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support
of my husband Michael. He is my biggest cheerleader, and without
his uplifting support, my business wouldn't be what it is
you to my customers who have made my dream become a reality!
I hope you will continue to love and allow me to create beautiful
creations just for you!
