About

Hey there, awesome artists and crafters! I’m Mel, the mastermind behind Creative Makes, where the magic of imagination comes to life! 🎨✨

Imagine a world where messy hands, vibrant colors, and endless giggles blend together to create pure joy! That’s exactly what we’re all about here, and I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome you to our whimsical art wonderland!

From the tiniest specks of imagination to the boldest strokes of creativity, I’ve always been captivated by the beauty of making things. Even when I was little, I couldn’t resist the urge to dive into messy masterpieces and witness the sheer happiness it brings. And guess what? The fun doesn’t just stop at the final masterpiece – the journey itself is a delightful adventure!

Now, picture this: a symphony of colors, laughter echoing off the walls, and a hint of magic in the air. That’s what I experienced when I embarked on a journey with my preschool littlies during my Early Childhood adventures. Watching those little minds explore, create, and conquer without any limits reminded me of the awe and excitement I felt as a young artist.

And so, the idea of Creative Makes was born – a place where my passion for art and the boundless wonders of young minds meet. 🌈🌟

But hold on, our world of creativity isn’t just for the little ones. Nope, not at all! I’m all about proving that EVERYONE can unleash their inner artist. Trust me, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard, “I’m not creative” from grown-ups. Well, I’m here to challenge that notion! 🎉

At Creative Makes, we’re not fixated on the end result. Nope, we’re all about the thrill of the process. There’s pure magic in feeling textures, mixing colors, and losing track of time as you create alongside friends or family. It’s not just a project; it’s a memory in the making, a chance to bond, and a reminder that art is truly for everyone.

So whether you’re a tiny tot or a seasoned explorer of life’s artistic wonders, come join us at Creative Makes. Let’s dive into a world of mess, laughter, and endless possibilities. Because here, every brushstroke is a step towards happiness, and every moment is a memory waiting to be painted. See you in the world of imagination and creativity! 🎈🖌️🌟

Our Values

Joy Connectedness Sharing Adventure Creative Freedom

JOY

I’m all about that uncontainable JOY that comes from making art, and I’m here to share it with you.

Picture this: a space where trying, failing, and trying again are not just allowed, but celebrated. We’re all about embracing the process, smudged fingers, wonky lines, and all. No need for fancy degrees or picture-perfect outcomes – just a whole lot of enthusiasm and a willingness to dive into the colorful world of creation. So if you’ve ever thought art wasn’t your thing, think again! Join me and let’s sprinkle a little more joy into our lives, one brushstroke at a time. 🌈🎉

CONNECTEDNESS

🎨🗣️ Let’s talk about the amazing vibes that come from diving into creative chaos together. I’m all about those hands getting busy, the giggles that can’t be contained, and the words that flow like a colorful river.

Think about it: a mix of young and wise minds, all hanging out, sharing ideas, and getting crafty. It’s like a recipe for epicness! From grown-ups learning to let loose from the pint-sized pros, to kiddos soaking up all the wisdom and experience, it’s a whirlwind of knowledge exchange. We’re talking heart-to-heart discussions about art techniques, epic wins, and hilarious oopsies – all while having a blast.

For me, this whole creative shindig is where the real magic happens. It’s not just about the project itself; it’s about the connections we forge. I’ve always been about the “make it, give it, spread smiles” philosophy. There’s nothing quite like crafting up a storm and gifting someone a piece of your heart, all wrapped up in glitter and good vibes.

And guess what? I’m totally game for you to pop in, say hi, and share your latest creative escapades. We’re building a space that’s all about those impromptu chats, high-fives, and “Hey, check this out!” moments. Let’s turn that big Creative Makes table into a hub of inspiration and awesomeness. Because when it comes to crafting and connecting, it truly takes a village! 🎉🎈🌟

SHARING

We’re all about having a blast while making magic together.

Imagine passing the creativity torch between ages and experience levels. We’re talking a knowledge party where everyone’s invited!

Let’s embrace the playful spirit, cherish the journey more than the destination, and share the joy of creating without a worry in the world. It’s all about sharing curiosity, wonder, and the pure thrill of diving in headfirst.

Think of it as a space where sharing smiles, ideas, and artful adventures is the name of the game. 🎨🌈🎉

ADVENTURE

Kids have this amazing superpower called boundless curiosity and a knack for turning everything into an adventure. They couldn’t care less about what stuff is “supposed” to be used for. They just dive in and create their own magic. I have to admit, it’s quite entertaining to see adults scratching their heads at this fearless approach. The thing is, as we grow up, we’re bombarded with instructions and rules, and sometimes breaking free from that can be a real challenge.

That’s where Creative Makes comes in. We’re creating a zone where adults get a ticket back to that carefree childhood wonder. Imagine embracing your inner kid, exploring without any “shoulds” or “hows,” and simply having a blast. It’s like becoming a kid again, but with a twist of grown-up wisdom. So, let’s reignite that spark, unlearn some rules, and rediscover the art of adventure alongside our pint-sized partners in creativity! 🎨🚀🌟

FREEDOM TO BE CREATIVE

Calling all grownups (and kids, you’re invited too)! Quick question: have you ever thought you’re not creative? Well, I’ve got a creative twist for you. Imagine this: forget about the final masterpiece and think about the joyful journey of crafting, painting, sticking, and gluing. Yep, that’s the real deal of being creative – diving headfirst into the process itself.

Let’s be real – I’ve had my fair share of “uh-oh” moments resulting in creations that resembled a certain canine’s breakfast. But you know what? It’s all part of the fun, the adventure, and that magical thing called being creative.

Now, here’s the thing: many of us shy away from trying because we’re scared it won’t turn out “right.” But hey, who sets the standards for what’s “right” anyway? That pattern, that picture – they don’t hold the secret formula. The real magic happens when you just give it a shot, explore new paths, and let colors, textures, and lines dance on the canvas. Even if it doesn’t turn out as planned, that’s just a cool story about the journey you took. So let’s give failure a high-five and let our creative spirits roam free! 🎨🎉🌈
