About "the Craft Shop" and Priya Sivaraj
I have been sharing little tidbits about all the sponsors in the respective giveaway sponsor posts but words actually fail me when I have to write about Priya...I feel whatever I write won't be adequate!
Priya is actually a brilliant software engineer and gave up her career to concentrate on her son...we became friends on blogger as crafty pals who had similar tastes in crafting and kids the same age !
That was way back in 2010 when getting papercrafting supplies was like treasure hunting! Priya started her business in a very small way by selling supplies from her blog...yeah facebook was not too popular back then!Her business has grown over the years and she has a full fledged website thecraftshop.in and an amazon presence to sell craft supplies at competitive rates and having an uncanny way of stocking unique supplies which are "in vogue" and which sell out fast if you dont grab them quickly!Priya now stocks supplies for not only for Card Making , Scrapbooking, Decoupage, Quillingand Punch Craft but also Sosopeso, Clay/ Fondant molds, cutters , Thai clay , Mixed media, Parchment craft and art supplies
I feel very happy to say I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing her progression from a simple housewife who crafted as a hobby to one of the most trusted , loved and top sellers of craft supplies in India..and all by single handed effort...I say hats off to you woman!!
And through it all she has remained a small town girl at heart!
And what all is she giving away [ as seen in the photos above]...crafting goodies worth nearly 4000 rupees!
