  • Description


    New ocean view location (previous workaway was at a different location). I am Cheryl and I'm here in Samara with my 7yr old son and our blind/deaf sweet shih tzu. I am setting up this new space to get it ready for guests and massage clients, repairs and creative touches.
    We are on a hill, which gives us a gorgeous view...and exercise! Walking distance to town. Looking for someone that can make some small repairs and is handy for different tasks to get a rental ready. Painting, an eye for design, carpentry, furniture building, gardening/garden projects and murals considered as well. What are you passionate about? What are your gifts to share?

    Samara is epic, the black hole of happiness. You are a downhill walk to the beach. 5 min walk. An uphill walk back from the beach and town, good exercise.

  • Help


    I have a variety of creative projects!! From general maintenance/tlc of a beach/mountain home, carpentry, interior design/ furniture creation to organization concepts to online endeavors.

    Web design and SEO and marketing, sign making, painting, and digital marketing, graphic design/vectors, creation of digital art, filming, video editing, website /photography, passive income creation) Are all possibilities.

    Artists! I have a few projects going on simultaneously and I could really use your help. Illustrators for Children's book projects. Also graphic design, text, or formatting. Artists that can collaborate on digital art for a collaborative online store.

    I would love to have art lessons for myself and my son!

    Your artwork in exchange for living at the beach.

    I am open to hearing about what skills you may bring.
    I have a Pinterest board of projects in case you want to see what you would be a good fit for.

    Creative/Educational kid - Science Experiments, Art Projects, (my son wants to make a rock tumbler, etc)

    Important details about this work away. You must be self-motivated. While I'm pretty chill and flexible I'm also a working single mom. If someone is excited about a project or has a vision, I like to let them run with it...I may give some input, however, I'm not going to micro-manage. If you see an opportunity to help feel free to pitch in. There's always food in the fridge help yourself. We may also have some planned meals or if there's something you like to make, or I may spring for going out occasionally to show gratitude.
