I have always wanted to be more artsy and craftsy. I actually know how to sew by hand, to do cross stitch, to do embroidery and knit, but I only know the basics. I am very amazed at those who can really and I mean “REALLY” do it and create things with these skills. I also love scrapbooking. I started scrapbooking even before I met my husband. One of the gifts that I gave him before was a scrapbook of all our pictures.
I love the idea of creating cutesy art pieces using craft materials, but i’m afraid that I’m not that artistic. I’ve seen the work of my friends, and you’d be amazed at how artistic they can be. Even my sister is far more creative than I am and she’s techy-er, too. But, I do realize the importance of including creativity into our lives. I think it makes us happier people! 🙂
As a mom, taking care of the children, doing errands for the house and work can get to you. You can do activities that help you relax and I’ve noticed that arts and crafts activities help me relax. These activities can even be a shared activity with your children. You can do arts and crafts projects together.
How Memory Crafters Started
My sister and I have fun organizing parties and creating concepts and making these concepts come to life. Memory Crafters started as an events coordination business, where we help you think of unique themes for your children and find ways to execute them through the help of suppliers.
But we had to put a halt to this business model since parties are normally done on Saturdays, and I had workshops to run under Manila Workshops on Saturdays (especially). Both of us were busy during weekends. We could only count the Saturdays when we did not have anything to do. We then thought of another business model. We both loved the idea of doing something that would promote crating and creativity. We thought of the many subscription boxes that are in the market right now, all concentrating on beauty products (my sister is a blogger from ManilaShopaholic.com so she gets to notice all of these). We then thought why not concentrate on creating boxes for arts and crafts.
Our market is actually individuals who are 9 years old up (and by “up” meaning even those who are retirees who are looking for something to do) who love crafting or those who want to get into crafting, but don’t know where to start (non-crafters like me!). Our instructions are written by our business partner who is a former pre-school teacher, so she really knows how to make it simple and very easy to understand. Our activities are thought of by her and by another partner who is an interior designer. Both of them create the activities that we include in our box.
We really think of the activities that we can include in the box and we really make it special for each one of you! We see that our measurement of success is when we see that each customer is contented and wow-ed by each of the box that we send. We are excited for the next boxes, which are supported by different brand partners. If you are a brand that would like to partner with us, please email us at founders(at)memorycrafters.com.ph.
