About Chelle

Hi! I'm Chelle Perea, owner of The Lemonade Store! I have been creating and crafting for as long as I can remember. I have a passion for vintage items and have recently opened up an eBay shop in order to share some of my treasures! You can find me on Instagram and there are lots of tutorials on my YouTube. If you are looking to take my beginning classes on lettering, please visit my Skillshare lessons

At a very young age, I started with the idea of drawing letters, and I loved to color in coloring books from beginning to end...in page order...ha! I then moved on to learning how to do beading and jewelry making while I worked part time at a local bead shop down by the beach. I was only 15 years old, and I absolutely loved sorting the beads and helping customers make amazing pieces. One of my favorite things about working at the bead shop was all of the gems and crystals. I still love and collect beads and crystals.

In February 2016, I was sitting down with my two young children and started coloring again. I immediately became enamored with modern hand lettering and calligraphy, started an Instagram feed, and practiced every single day. I learned tips and tricks along the way, and love sharing them on my YouTube! 

I currently homeschool my kids and spend lots of time selling vintage items and things I find cool on my eBay. When I am not doing that, I have been learning how to quilt and cross-stitch...always creating in some way!!
