Who is Artsycraftsymom?

Well, hello there! It’s time to come out from behind my brand name and introduce myself.

I’m Shruti Acharya, also known as the “mom” who is “Artsy Craftsy”. Crafting has been a passion of mine since I was a kid, and when my daughter was born, I couldn’t wait to start crafting with her and relive those joyful moments.

After years of craft blogging and sharing my ideas with parents all around the world, I’ve come to realize that I’m not just creating fun projects – I’m providing valuable content for parents who want to bond with their children through crafting.

But don’t take my word for it! In today’s fast-paced, digital world, our children need more than just screens and devices. They need to learn the joy of creating with their hands, and the earlier we start, the better.

That’s why my mission is to spread the joy of crafting, one child at a time.

So come on in and explore the wonderful world of Artsy Craftsy Parenting with me! Let’s make some memories, learn new skills, and have fun together!


Why Blog?

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.

The inspiration and inception to start the blog was my zeal to spend more time with my daughter and engage her in a meaningful way. Even though it is called Artsy Craftsy Mom, the blog is not just about making crafts with and for children. You will find handy parenting tips on everything from throwing a birthday party to book recommendations and recipes along with plenty of pictures and video tutorials on making fun crafts with paper and colours. Holiday craft posts are very popular.

ArtsyCraftsyMom is an award-winning blog …
