About

Sweet Girl Crafts started off as an idea motivated by frustration with social networking and the inability for scrolling up and down Facebook to capture long-standing concentration. Sometime in 2012, a college student’s boredom leads to an idea that quickly bloomed into fruition; one of crafting joy. Rachel Blenkle, the founder of Sweet Girl Crafts was born in Utica, Michigan in May of 1991, and is now 21 years old. She graduated in 2009 and has lived in Ortonville for most of her adult life. When asked what captivates Rachel with crafting, she’ll respond simply “anything that sparkles has my attention” and this can be seen in her craft, with her persistent use of fine glitter that is much more entertaining to look at than it is trying to clean up.

Sweet Girl Crafts started off as an idea motivated by frustration with social networking and the inability for scrolling up and down Facebook to capture long-standing concentration. Sometime in 2012, a college student’s boredom leads to an idea that quickly bloomed into fruition; one of crafting joy. Rachel Blenkle, the founder of Sweet Girl Crafts was born in Utica, Michigan in May of 1991, and is now 21 years old. She graduated in 2009 and has lived in Ortonville for most of her adult life. When asked what captivates Rachel with crafting, she’ll respond simply “anything that sparkles has my attention” and this can be seen in her craft, with her persistent use of fine glitter that is much more entertaining to look at than it is trying to clean up. When it comes to crafting, she looks for projects that turn the simplistic into the unusual, turning everyday objects into ones of beauty. She enjoys creating custom orders, and exudes pride when she can spread happiness with her craft. When Rachel isn’t crafting she works three jobs as caregiver and pizza connoisseur. She attended Eastern Michigan University in 2001 before returning home to Ortonville to finish her schooling which she continues at Wayne State University as a full time student where she pursues a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and well eventually continue on to Graduate School in a little less than ten years, which was a main motivation for the progression of Rachel’s crafting from a hobby to a small business—college is expensive! Rachel also enjoys writing and plans to become a novelist in her retirement once she can afford to pursue such lofty dreams. When asked, Rachel would define herself as a people person and looks forward to a professional future working with others and fighting for social justice. She hopes to work simultaneously with the very old and the very young, improving quality of care in not only assisted living facilities but also educational constructs. Most important of all, Rachel believes that everything visual deserves to be admired even it does not appear to be beautiful at first glance.
