Hi! My name is Ivy and I am the owner of Get Crafty Designs. Thank You for visiting my website. I would like to tell you more about myself.
I grew up in the Philippines, but I’ve lived in US for the last 18 years and I became a citizen 15 years ago. I live in Washington State with my husband and our 14-year-old son. He plays baseball all year long. We love baseball in our family!
I have always loved arts and crafts ever since I was a little girl in Manila. It’s like my meditation. It brings me peace. When life gets a little too busy or crazy and I need time for myself to keep my sanity, I go out with a good friend to grab lunch or dinner. But for the most part you’ll find me in my craft room doing something. I could be playing with paints, beads, paper, glue or even Corel Draw or Photoshop! I don’t really plan what I do during my ‘me time’, I just do whatever I feel like doing at that time.
My husband has been encouraging me to sell the arts and crafts that I make for a long time, but I’ve always been hesitant because I’m not really professional or had any formal training at making these crafts. I just do and make what feels good to me at that time.
Why would anybody want to buy my stuff? My husband has explained to me multiple times that there are wonderful people out there that actually prefer handcrafted arts and crafts made by crafty people and small businesses. So I took the leap of faith a couple of years go and decided to sell some of the crafts that I love making.
I now have a commercial sublimation printer, four heat presses and a large commercial laser engraver cutter. I’ve been practicing, learning, and having fun using all of them! Some of the designs I have are paid licenses that allow me to sell commercially, but most of the designs are my creation.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope you’ll find something that you like from my website, but most importantly, I hope that you get a chance to Get Crafty today. Being crafty can be messy at times but it’s a whole lot of fun. So let your inner craftiness free!
