Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m Shruti Bhat & I live with my family in the garden city, Bangalore in India. I am passionate about children’s art and creativity and want to share that passion with you.
On the Artsy Crafty Mom blog, I share ideas, information, and inspiration to encourage you to enjoy and share art & craft with the kids in your life (whether in your home or your classroom). I post several times a week on kids art ideas, seasonal crafts, and family fun activities.
You can expect:
- EASY and FUN kid-friendly arts and crafts
- Unique Mom Tried-and-Tested activities for kids
- Home projects, easy recipes, parenting tips, and more.
It is all about being an Artsy-Craftsy parent – Sharing fun things do with your kids!
A brief background:
I drew and painted my way through childhood, my mother being my biggest inspiration. An expert crocheter and artist, I saw her weave magic with her hands. From painted bedsheets, to hand embroidered table runners, pretty artwork on the walls and beautiful rangolis at our doorsteps, we connected over our love for art.
Somewhere along the way, my interest in art took a backseat and life took over. I studied to be a software engineer, immersing myself in lines of code instead.
After my daughter was born, my interest in art was revitalized and I realized that I wanted to raise her in an art-rich environment and to encourage her creativity and imagination as much as possible.
I started ArtsyCraftsyMom partly to chronicle and share my experiences crafting with my then 3-year-old and also as a way for me to focus more on what it means to me to be an Artsy Craftsy Mom. I want to parent in a way that encourages creative expression, imagination, joyfulness, and a love of learning, not just in my daughters but in our entire family. I wanted to welcome others to join me as I attempted to be an Artsy Craftsy Mom.
