Rhoda Woehlke

Creative Owner
Santa Mailbox Shaker Card

Rhoda has always loved to create things from paper (and play school). Colors make her world go round. The paper crafting adventures got serious in 2000 with the birth of her daughter. Making scrapbooks of her cute little face was the best feeling ever.
Rhoda learned to sell her creations on eBay while pregnant with her son. Making a little extra cash made it so she could stay home with the kids until they were in school.
In 2007, Rhoda used her degree in education with a minor in art to teach elementary school, high school art, and technology.
The purchase of a Cricut and the discovery of Adobe Illustrator brought all her crafty passions together. Now, she gets to design fun paper craft files to share with the world, work from anywhere while living in a 26-foot Imagine camper, and play with all the colors of paper!
