About Me

Working for The Crafty Hen is so much fun, it doesn't feel like work! I love meeting different people all coming together to having fun creating crafty pieces and happy memories that the bride can treasure forever! Especially true with memory book making- it's amazing seeing people come together to share their stories and create beautiful memory books that the bride can keep forever.
