Hi! I'm Sharon.
Hello! I'm a wife to an incredibly supportive husband and mom to two wonderful daughters (who married two wonderful men we are privileged to call sons-in-law).
After graduating from college I worked in administrative settings and eventually applied my appreciation for marketing to major projects. Working hard with flexibility and creative freedom is something that has always motivated me to excel.
The last ten years have been a journey through cancer (twice), finding the healing and recovery options that God opened for me to pursue (I've been clear from cancer since 2013), and watching the Lord kindly shepherd our family into a place of peace and hope-filled joy. We are expecting our first grandbaby and that's amazing.
My favorite hours are spent at home with family, walking in the woods, taking photos of wildlife and nature, and using the gift of music in our local church. Creating DIY decor using words has grown on me since my family gifted me with a Silhouette machine; it was to learn how to make custom signs for my youngest daughter's wedding. I dreamed about opening up a shop to share "words", but really, who does that??
Chalk Couture found me in 2019 and I haven't looked back. They offer reusable silkscreen transfers and chalk pastes and inks (for fabric!) that work beautifully on their boutique chalk surfaces for any occasion. And, the pastes and inks don't have to be used just on chalk board surfaces - they work on just about ANY surface! I joined as a Designer with this amazing company and added high-end home decor to my business, The Savvy Rose Shop located inside Your Needful Things in Binghamton, New York. The ease of use, the simplicity of the process, and the stunning finished projects are truly a joy to share with others. Now I am able to teach others to do the same through chalk art workshops and wholesale designer memberships.
I'm so glad you're here!
