Meet The Gals





our story

Four women looking for a hobby. Donna, a retired banker and retailer, Kerri, a hair stylist, Helen, a retired cost analyst, and Debbie, a retired project manager. We enjoyed each other’s company and loved creating décor for our homes and for gifts. Thus, we became the Checkered Past Gals.

We enjoy what we do. We hope you enjoy it too!
