No stranger to unconventional creativity, Charmelle Clark has been creating since childhood. Using her imagination to create items ranging from scrapbooks to cross stitching, there is not a creative thought that goes undiscovered! Charmelle has used her self-taught gift to start Creatively Charming, a customized stationary and scrapbook business. The artistry placed into each handmade item is a gift within itself, so what is needed now is the gift of business resources to assist Charmelle with moving forward. An art studio that gives Charmelle a space to work freely and even hold workshops would be much appreciated. Assistance with marketing techniques and website development would do wonders. Or being connected with art festival organizers would put Creatively Charming on the right track! EWI’s 1st Annual Holiday Gift Marketplace is the perfect time to purchase Charmelle’s beautiful stationary and offer your resources!
