MMB Episode 5: Clara-Nicole from She’s Crafty Too
We are excited to showcase Clara-Nicole today. Clara’s story really demonstrates how you need to be willing to utilize adaptability in business as your business experiences grow. Just because you started your business journey one way doesn’t mean that’s your only path or option.
Clara-Nicole is the creator of She’s Crafty Too, an online shop that specializes in beautiful wreaths, teardrop swags, decorative garlands, and floral centerpieces. After successfully growing that business, she opened Creators’ Clubhouse, LLC, a physical arts & crafts and women’s clothing boutique storefront in San Antonio, TX.
Finding her passion to create at a young age, she was always making things with her hands for her dolls, herself, and for others. In 2013, she tried making her first wreath for her own door, which turned into another and then into many more!
Through her businesses, she was able to leave her 17-year corporate career in 2016 and became a maker full time while fulfilling her dream to be a stay at home mom. Since then, she has made and sold unique home decor items while also teaching others how to make their own.

How to Adapt Your Business Idea
One of the greatest contributors to Clara-Nicole’s success is her adaptability in business. When one business strategy doesn’t work as well as she hopes, she pivots and adapts to something that works better. I guess you could say that adaptability in itself has been a successful business strategy for her!
And if that’s not interesting enough, some other things that she chats about that you’ll want to hear:
- Don’t be afraid to…
- Take the time and the leap to become a legitimate business
- How TikTok helped her traffic
I had a great time talking with Clara-Nicole and appreciated the time she took to chat with us about her business strategy pearls of wisdom. I am looking forward to seeing what’s in store for her and what other pivots she may make in the future as she continues to grow her businesses.
