Michele Beschen, the host of HGTV’s 15 Fresh Handmade Gift Ideas, says her passion is to empower others to express their creativity and to take a fearless approach with do-it-yourself projects. She believes creativity is timeless and can lead to amazing discoveries, whether it’s a new technique, a new product or a new business.
After nine years working in broadcast television, Michele established Simply Michele, Inc. (SMI) — a multimedia company that helps empower people to explore, express and exchange creative do-it-yourself project ideas through a variety of content platforms. Soon, Michele combined her talent with crafts and her professional TV experience to develop her own television series, Michele Beschen's Courage to Create. In September 2006, the show evolved into B. Original, a craft series featured on DIY Network and HGTV.
In addition to her television series, Michele demonstrates her unique craft projects in her DVD collection, Courage to Create. In 2007, Multichannel News named Michele as one of the "On-Air Women to Watch." She is regularly featured in Do It Yourself magazine and also has made appearances on Good Morning America and the Rachael Ray Show.
Michele resides in Madison County, Iowa, with her husband, Jon, and daughter, Madeline.
