Hi my name is Melissa and I am the owner of Crafty Divas.
My love for papercraft began in 2004. A friend of mine asked me if I would host a scrapbooking party for her to help her launch her party plan business. I said I was not really into cut and paste but after being involved with the party I soon became hooked.
In December 2004, I moved to Darwin with my husband and 2 children (both boys), where I made some great friends who also shared my passion for scrapbooking. I call these girls my ‘Crafty Divas’ as they are amazing women who are not only some of my best friends but my inspiration. The Divas introduced me to stamping and card making which was the point of no return. The Divas and I reguarly spend half the night scrapbooking. We learnt together, messed up together, laughed and cried together.
As our knowledge grew so did our desire for top quality products. The Divas and I soon became frustrated with the lack of availability and quality of craft products in Darwin. My friend approached me to teach her and her daughter some scrapbooking and card workshops. The word quickly spread and I soon began teaching these workshops on a weekly basis, the need became more apparent for a affordable quality products.
My husband suggested that I open up an online scrapbooking store and on 26/08/2011 my site went live on the internet.
My aim is to offer friendly and excellent service, a fast turnaround from time of purchase to delivery and competitive prices! I am not a big business, just a mother that works fulltime who craves scrapbooking
My dream would be to create enough income from my online business that would allow me to open up a store right here in Darwin.
I hope to find time between working fulltime and raising a family to keep my customers up to date by adding inspiational video clips (posted via YouTube) of techniques and maybe even my own scrapbooking projects.
Thanks for visiting my site and remember
Do it with a smile
In Diva Style
Unleash your creativity
Just because you can!
