Pull up a chair, friend!

A Creative Mess is a website for creatives. Here you’ll find resources, printables, inspiration, DIY and tons more for your creative adventures.


Hello there, & welcome!

Let A Creative Mess be a source of inspiration for you!

I’m Michelle (pronounced Michelle) —design enthusiast, trained visual merchandiser, mentor, and founder of A Creative Mess, a Dutch based creative website dedicated in providing inspiration for like-minded creatives —just like you!

My creative journey began in San Francisco where I studied Visual Presentation and Space Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. In my last year at FIDM I spent many of my evenings at the community college in Santa Rosa studying floral design. In the years that followed I worked with some of the best in the industry as well as working as a freelance florist in the Wine Country of Sonoma, California. In 1995 my daughter Cierra and I immigrated to The Netherlands where we now live, in Enschede.

With passion, ambition, and a strong work ethic at the core of all I do, I am honored to have the space now to do what I love —creating! In the beginning of 2018 I made the decision to help people out with their WordPress websites & blogs —for free! Helping others achieve the lifestyle they desire with a well-designed blog that works for them is at the heart of what I do. Together, we will translate your story and goals into tailored designs that are a clear reflection of you. More about the web services coming soon!

xoxo, Micheile
