For as long as I can remember, I have loved making things. My earliest memories are out the front with my Dad sawing and sanding wood while he was building something for the house. I remember going to craft days with my Mum and Nan and making Santa sleighs at Christmas time and making invitations for any celebration that we have. I like to think I have passed on my creative gene to my kids, but truth be told, my husband is just as creative, if not more, so I am happy to say they got it from both of us!
These days I find it harder to fit anything crafty in, but I try! The thing is, now I don’t have a lot of time, I like to find inspiration from the internet, but there is so much out there! So, this is why Craftly and Co was born. To draw together the best parts of art and craft from the internet to help you pass on your love for crafting to your kiddos.
I have always found it hard to buy art and craft products for my kids because they are going to use it and use it hard! So they need to be of a good quality to withstand what my kids throw at them, but not so expensive that I don’t want my kids to use them. This is always a fine tightrope for me because I know I always have a budget and it can’t always be spent on craft! With this in mind, I have tried to find products that suit the budget and will withstand the test of kids!
