Yours Truly

Shela-Lyn BoxbergerLife is a surprise party every day for a sanguine like me.  (It is why I started a party planning business by default, or better said, “funfault”, nope, not a real word.)  Every day I look forward to those I will meet and the opportunities that await to inspire and serve others!  I have a passion to encourage people along my life’s path through simple, yet “clever creations”.  (Yep, the reason for my company name).

My college degrees are in Interpreting for the Deaf and Education (Go ASU Sundevils!).  Mom said as though my mouth didn’t move fast enough and I didn’t have enough words already, I had to add my hands/sign language to the mix.  If you meet me in person you immediately know I would never need to kiss the Blarney Stone for the gift of gab.  My heart is to use a combination of creativity and play-on-words to embolden others, as well as teach how the words we choose and the things we do make a difference in others’ lives. (Embolden is a thesaurus word I had to look up and yes, I know it is weird I read a thesaurus for fun (oh yes, I really do).  However, teachers are often the best students and I didn’t want to keep repeating the word encourage.)  For the past 15 years I have been in a classroom inspiring, enjoying, and educating students of all ages K-12.  I have also enjoyed teaching audiences on television, at churches, retreats, and civic groups, in homeless shelters, and in people’s homes on a variety of subjects.  I would consider myself a creative spirit and repurposer (another made up word ).  As a result of using items in two to three ways other than their original intent, along with combining a creative play-on-words with simple products, I was encouraged by my clients and the recipients of my gifts to write a book so others could have it as a resource (See Inside the Pages tab on this site).

I love my husband of 22 years, two daughters, two dogs, all things autumn, parties, porch swings, peonies, tulips, and hydrangeas, books, books and nothing more than the Good Book, and everything ice-cream and sweet.  It would be my delight to pass on some creation inspiration for you and others in your life.  So let’s get started shall we?
