Shayla enjoys repurposing old items and creating new treasures in her free time. A natural go-getter, Shayla believes in “creating opportunities where they don’t exist to do the things you want to do.” In 2018, she developed a weekly web series called Let’s Craft and produced half hour specials for television and web. She edits, writes, voices and (mostly) shoots the series and specials herself. Popular episodes include Grandma's Pound Cake Lesson, How to Make a Shark Tooth Sifter and How to Make Clay Stems for fabric pumpkins.
She finds stories, schedules interviews and looks for creative ways to visually engage viewers through her work. She always remembers “people remember how they feel more than anything” and works to create content that emotionally connects viewers to experiences outside their own.
She shares creations with more than 1500 followers on her Shayla’s Creative Side Facebook page and produces videos for a Shayla’s Creative Side YouTube channel. She also uses her talents to help others. Learn more about Shayla's interests on Instagram.
