About Carabas Crafts

Hi there and welcome on my Patreon-page!

My name is Brigitte, and I am the creative mind behind Carabas Crafts.

Born and raised in a crafty family I always had an affinity with all kinds of crafts (knitting, sewing, building stuff etc). Since I was able to hold a pen I draw. But life happened - as all of you know - and after school, I tried to make money out of my beloved hobby. I applied for a design and graphics course in big universities but never reached the final round to get selected and permitted to register. After all I chose to study in my home city and worked until I got my master’s degree. In this time, it was hard to find time to draw every day or just occasionally, so I worked less and less on my hobbies.

Some say, “everything changes when you become a mom”, and this is true. Since I have my little daughter, I work from home and try harder than ever to make things I love – not only for me, but also for my child to learn the worth of handmade goods. In my opinion, handmade gifts have a higher value not only because of the hard work someone spend making the present but also because of all thoughts and feelings which went into the process.

These things I wanted to share with others, so I founded Carabas Crafts – an online-shop where you can find fairy tale and story inspired gifts, illustrations and many more not only for children. The name-giving fictional land here is the home of the baron of Carabas in the fairy tale “Puss-in-Boots”, my favourite story. So “Puss-in-Boots” is the main inspiration of my work, but I don’t want to exclude all the other beautiful and fantastic tales. Therefore, I love to make products hinting to certain stories, fairy tales or literature – gifts made in Carabas.

So why Patreon?

I want to share my handmade gifts to spread happiness and positivity. But that is not always easy. Primarily my patrons should be able to contribute to the store. This way I want to build a little community. The income via Patreon would be spent into shop material, new product lines (I always wanted to make my own washi tape) and eco-friendly packaging.

In return you will get exclusive insights to my store-life, see me grow, get special items and much more.

If you want to get to know me and my work first, feel free to visit my Instagram, Pinterest or Carabas Crafts.

Until then I want to thank you for your visit, and I hope to see you soon in Carabas!
