Welcome to Shabby and Distressed!

I'm Raquel an "unofficial" author, a photographer of nature and a very happy crafter.

I was born and raised in the Bronx N.Y but have lived all over the U.S due to my husband’s military career.

My son provides me with lots of funny and relatable material for children's books, so every now and again I'll write a kids book to read to him at night. I also love taking photographs of nature But my true passion is this right here. I absolutely love and appreciate personalized and handmade things and truly enjoy making them as well. I have been doing this for 6 years now. This is my hobby, my stress reliever. Whether I am happy, mad, anxious or sad, this is what I turn to.

Welcome to Shabby and Distressed!

I'm Raquel an "unofficial" author, a photographer of nature and a very happy crafter.

I was born and raised in the Bronx N.Y but have lived all over the U.S due to my husband’s military career.

My son provides me with lots of funny and relatable material for children's books, so every now and again I'll write a kids book to read to him at night. I also love taking photographs of nature But my true passion is this right here. I absolutely love and appreciate personalized and handmade things and truly enjoy making them as well. I have been doing this for 6 years now. This is my hobby, my stress reliever. Whether I am happy, mad, anxious or sad, this is what I turn to. When I am feeling down, this lifts me up and when I am feeling happy, this keeps me on cloud 9. Needless to say I spend a lot of my free time painting and decoupaging on anything I can get my hands on.

It brings me great satisfaction to take something and with a little bit of paint, paper and a few other elements completely transform it into something totally different, awesome and new.

I don't really specialize in any one thing in particular. I just go with what I feel like making. Sometimes I have an idea for a nice jewelry box, and other times I want to paint a birdhouse, or hanging frame. Whatever it is it's always made with passion, love and care.

I have fun with ever piece and put a lot of love, time and care into each item I make.

I really hope you enjoy my items just as much as I enjoyed making them.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look. I post things often so be sure to come back.
