Meet the TEAM


Laura Greenfelder - Owner
Hi, I am Laura Greenfelder, owner of Creative Passions. I opened the first Creative Passions building in 2005, while trying to find a career that would fit my kid's schedule plus doing something I love. My passion is quilting with my Mom and our Piecemaker's Quilt Guild members, and scrapbooking with my friends. I have been married to Kent since 1991, during which we raised our twin daughters Mackenzie and Alexandra. Our daughters are now in college in New York, and we are filling our extra time remodeling Creative Passions Retreat Center.
Tamara - Business Manager
My name is Tamara and I handle anything from reservations and bookkeeping, to the design and maintenance of the website. I am originally from Southern California but have lived in Chesaning since 2009. My husband Keith is originally from Chesaning and we met while he lived in California for a few years. When traveling to Michigan for vacation, I fell in love with the old houses, big green yards, and small town fun. After I received my MBA from Cal State Fullerton, we made the big move. I was fortunate that Laura was in need of help when I moved and have been working for her ever since. I have 2 shelter dogs, a bird named Marley, a son named Xander and a daughter named Weslee. I enjoy digital scrapbooking, running, and outdoor activities. I have really enjoyed working with Laura and meeting such wonderful ladies. I look forward to seeing you when you visit.
