About me

Hi, I am Chelsie! I am so happy you are here! I have always loved working with kids and have been a teacher for over 11 years. As a child, I was always interested in cooking, baking, and any crafts I could get my hands on. I would make "potions" with the neighborhood kids using random ingredients from other neighbors, most of them just turned into a mess, but we sure had fun in the process! I still have the mini sock monkey I made as a kid and a cross-stitch piggy bib I made. I could not get enough of crafting and cooking, anything I found to make with my hands I would try. I am still that way today, I love spending my free time quilting, sewing, knitting, baking, pottery, and learning new crafty skills! When I’m not crafting or learning something new you can find me and my husband camping and hiking in the mountains! I am so excited to teach your child all that I have learned over the years!

why i created elevation handmade

I created Elevation Handmade for kids that were just like me, kids who love a variety of crafts and love to learn but may not have someone in their life that can teach them all that they are interested in. My membership provides skill-building foundation courses, and projects with easy-to-follow videos, written steps as well as pictures for each step. So no matter how your child learns they will be able to succeed with my courses. I provide downloads for supply lists, instructions, and templates for all of the projects so that it is easy to get started. Best of all your child will be able to review the ad-free videos and  project materials as much as they need while they are a member, they can come back again and again. The videos are meant to be self-led so parents don’t have to monitor every step of the way unless you want to! I would love to have your child join me in learning and creating new projects in a safe supportive environment. Elevation Handmade is your one-stop-shop for all things that creative kids love! Let’s get started!
