Hi, my name is Camille.

I'm a doctor who likes to make things! Part doc, part craft.

In medical school I had very little time for “creative endeavors”. Forget crafts, forget poetry. Writing? Nope. Reading? Only if it was a medical textbook. I was so involved with medicine and so in love with what I was doing that I really didn’t miss crafting. Or so I thought.

When I finished residency I had a lot more time on my hands; no more
80-hour work weeks! I became a little shadowbox-making machine! If it was your birthday you were getting a shadowbox. Just had a baby? Here’s your shadowbox. I even made all the centerpieces, party favors, invitations and décor for my friend's birthday party…

I developed my website www.craftsbycamille.com (still “in progress”) as a way to showcase some of the things I’ve made and to teach others how to do the same-if they like.

I never intended to sell any of my items, but I’ve gotten such positive feedback on the shadowboxes and keepsakes I’ve made, that I decided to open myself up to creating them for others as well.

All of my crafts are custom made by me. Being somewhat obsessive-compulsive (can’t help it, most doctors are like that), I take great care in producing a final product that is well made. I make a little bit of everything, but I’m willing to explore more avenues. If there is something in particular you would like me to make for you, I would be more than happy to do it, even if I’ve never done it before.

Despite my love for crafting, I still work as a doctor full-time. I find that balance is extremely important. I absolutely love my career and I've worked hard to get where I am, but I also let my creative side play.

So, let’s play!

Camille
