Meet Richelle | Project STIR Spotlight

Aren’t those necklaces gorgeous?

When I started choosing perks for the Project STIR Kickstarter I knew I wanted something that felt personal and heartfelt. That’s why I asked Richelle to create custom necklaces as a Kickstarter reward. I was so excited when she sent me these examples!

The little girl in the necklace above is Anndi (a Project STIR participant who will be learning Bestemorkake from her mother-in-law in Norway.) Just seeing a photo of the necklace brought a tear to her eye.

I love how Richelle’s creations capture emotion and memory and love. 🙂


Meet Richelle

I first discovered Richelle through April Bowles-Olin’s blogging course on Creative Live. Then we ended up in the League of Supers together and became real life friends during April’s second CL course. I’m so glad we connected and excited to introduce her to you.


What is your favorite kitchen memory?

My favorite memories are cooking with my kids. We make candy at Christmas time and I always make a huge deal of it.

Cooking Christmas Candy with Family


Have you had any kitchen disasters over the years?

Yes, all the time. I step away “just for a second” and burn dinner at least once a week. Once I was making chicken and dumplings and when I went to add salt, the cap came off and before i could stop it, the salt shaker emptied into the pot. I tried scooping it out, but it was unsalvageable.

What is your favorite family recipe?

Portuguese donuts (filhos), made with the dough for sweet bread. At Easter, my grandparents would always make a little extra dough when making loaves of sweet bread and fry it up for us. Yum!

What is your favorite kitchen tool?

My KitchenAid mixer!! i use it all of the time. Or maybe my crock pot. Do I have to choose one??

  • Richelle, I love my Kitchen Aid mixer, too! I just haven’t used it in … way too long. I don’t know about you, but this project is sure STIRRING up some emotions in me — the need to bump some things off my plate (so to speak) and spend more time in the kitchen.

    It’s so nice to meet you today and hear your story.

    • I’m itching to do some baking too! Once this month is over I may have a social media hiatus so I can spend some more time in the kitchen.

      • I hear ya! And fall is the perfect time to heat up the oven and bake some goodies.
