About

Welcome to Woody Woodworks!

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 former military career.

I enjoy making up my own children’s stories for my kids and since they LOVE it when I do that, I decided to publish my stories for them on another awesome website called, blurb.com where they print out your books for you, illustrations and all. This is why I call myself an "unofficial" author.

As I mentioned I also love taking photographs of the people and things that surround me. I take my camera everywhere I go because I never know when I’ll get inspired by something. My favorite thing to photograph…

Welcome to Woody Woodworks!

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 former military career.

I enjoy making up my own children’s stories for my kids and since they LOVE it when I do that, I decided to publish my stories for them on another awesome website called, blurb.com where they print out your books for you, illustrations and all. This is why I call myself an "unofficial" author.

As I mentioned I also love taking photographs of the people and things that surround me. I take my camera everywhere I go because I never know when I’ll get inspired by something. My favorite thing to photograph is nature which is funny because I am not a lover of the outdoors at all. I do however appreciate its beauty.

Now my true passion is this right here. I absolutely love and appreciate personalized and handmade things and truly enjoy making them.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 wooden. It brings me great satisfaction to take an unfinished wooden item, and with a little bit of paint, paper and a few other elements transform it into something totally different, awesome and new and to be able to say, I created that.

I do not 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 etc. Sometimes I want to crackle or distress something and other times I just want to make an item that is bold and fun. Whatever it may be, it's ALWAYS wooden.

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 shop as much as I enjoyed making each item.
Thank you so much for stopping by and having a look. I post things often so be sure to come back and take a look, you never know, you might find something you just gotta have.
