I specialize in designing on-trend projects that will make your gathering a hit! Your guests will leave with a finished project they will love to use, display, or gift.

I have taught crafting and DIY projects in the Chicago area since 2013, helping to bring people together, create connections, and build confidence through creativity.

Everything needed for a successful project, including supplies, tools, friendly instruction, set-up, and clean-up is provided.

Types of Projects

  • Jewelry making — earrings and necklaces

  • Affirmation crafts — collages and paper crafts

Margaux created a splendid affirmation craft activity for a Singers Day Retreat I hosted. Its blend of simplicity and beauty was both relaxing and affirming for the attendees. Margaux’s calm and assuring demeanor made the activity fun and engaging. I look forward to doing more crafting events with her in the future!

Thanks so much for hosting yet another amazing topic for the Enrichment Course series–everyone had a blast! You have such a patient and compassionate way of guiding these courses and I really appreciate your willingness to share your talents in this way. Thanks for your extra attention to help me with my own challenges today too.

I had the pleasure of working with Margaux for a private crafts event hosted by me and a friend. We wanted to do something special for our combined group of girlfriends that would be both unique and fun for everyone. Margaux was flexible, allowing us to have snacks and wine. She worked closely with us to help put together an event that fit our budget and location. Margaux is professional and passionate about creativity and sharing her knowledge with others. Her instructions were easy to follow and she is super helpful and encouraging. The ladies left with beautiful handmade earrings and hair/shoe accessories. We really enjoyed ourselves! Thanks, Margaux for making our event a success! I would recommend for bachelorette parties, girlfriend get-togethers, sorority outings or book club.
