ABOUT  Crafty Chicks


I have loved every minute of this journey....



Crafty Chicks

Hi everyone my name is Wendy Reaux, lover of all things crafty.  I am originally from Texas and moved to Louisiana to attend college.  I loved it so much that I stayed!  My degree is in Hospitality Managment and I also studied for a teaching certificate.  I believe those degrees got me ready for all that life had in store for me.  

I first started my career at the Lafayette Convention and Vistors Commission, which is how I knew to find such a wonderful event center.  I've also worked at the Hilton as a Corporate Sales Mgr., I started a small business where I taught preschool computer classes for 12 years and on the side I taught scrapbook classes for about 8 years.  I also worked at Disney, the happiest place on earth and this job is where I can say I learned my work ethics!  I was born to put on a party and this event allows me to do just that!  I also love creating scrapbook kits with Toadilliy Scrappin Kits and own Southern Silks LLC where I create beautiful flower arrangments for brides!


Everyone says when one door closes another will open.  I have been so blessed to create these wonderful events for the last 9 years and I am happy that I get to continue my dream by providing a wonderful crafty experience for you all.    I think my work ethics have been proven over the last 9 years designing and creating these themes and spending countless, but happy hours making this a great event.  When starting this event I always planned to go big or go home, I was ready to work and ready for what each event would bring....things will continue to be BIG even with some changes that will be taking place.  I thank you all for your continued support!

Past Events​


I did not know if this would work or be successful but it was! It has grown from 1/4 of the building to the whole building being rented.  How excited I was that so many ladies trusted me  to provide them a great place to scrapbook for the weekend.  Then the following year it grew to renting the whole facility! And grew and grew until now we have 258 wonderful ladies attending the event.  I am so honored!!! We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for coming to our event.
