As a mother of two children and a wife in North County, San Diego, I live a fulfilling and happy life. But, when people ask about my passion, I always answer the same...I am an extremely creative person that enjoys bringing creative art and design into everything that I do.
I have had a passion for art and design my whole life. I graduated from Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise (FIDM) where I spent years learning design, composition and the use of space. After graduation, I worked in various fields of the design industry and went on to become a family photographer. I have used my creative calling to capture the beautiful moments of both children and their parents. It has been my personal privilege to watch the silly and innocent personalities of beautiful children all over San Diego County. Working with children has helped me become more patient and has allowed me to see multiple ways of accomplishing a beautiful outcome. And the perceived “right” way is not always the best way.
Since I became a mother, I have been organizing original birthday parties for my children and helping friends out. As my parties became more creative I realized how much I loved coming up with new ideas and putting everything together. I noticed there was a lack of original party options and observed that many parents just did not know where to begin or have the time to plan something special for their kids big day!. I began to dream of hosting colorful birthdays that would be different then the rest. One day I had an "AH-HAH" moment and thought how amazing it would be to put all my passions together and teach children all the crafts and projects I have learned over a lifetime. This is how Create Art, A Party for Kids began.
As a small business owner and party planner I have been offering unique and colorful craft parties to families in San Diego. I knew I found my true calling and loved every moment working with all the amazing families and creative kids. We made amazing projects such as fairy garden’s, dream catchers, painting canvases, creating clocks, painting pillows and was able to cater to any theme a kid could dream of.
. When the pandemic hit, life changed drastically for everyone. Sadly, I was no longer able to host parties and run my business the same . I made a decision to transition my business model hoping to help parents make their life easier by sourcing the best materials and taking the stress out of what to do for your child’s next party. We created projects that can empower kids to create and explore with hands-on activities. Rather than prepping to throw parties, I started creating craft boxes for kids to complete at home or at p. Through trial and error and many hours of research I have made each project special and unique. Kits include glue, paint, and high quality art materials. Thus, making life a lot easier for parents when kids want to create art and have fun.
Create Art is a concept of bringing art and celebrations together. We have enjoyed throwing art parties immensely and would now like to offer curated birthday parties and craft kits delivered directly to your front door. We will supply all quality materials, including step by step instructions, timelines and tutorials to keep a party running smoothly. We will do all the shopping and sourcing saving you time and money. Kids will create personalized works of art while having a fun engaging activity to keep their creative minds stimulated. All parents will impress their guests with these crafty DIY projects. With one party box we will provide everything to complete beautiful art projects and entertain your children along the way!
