Hello and welcome to P i p a C r a f t s !
My name is Filipa, I’m 30-years-old, I’m from Lisbon, Portugal - I'm a portuguese who calls United Kingdom home since 2012.
I started studying Arts when I was 14, at Antonio Arroio Secondary School of Arts in Lisbon and between 2006-2010 I finished my Fine Arts Degree at the University of Fine Arts in Lisbon.
I'm also a mum to a wonderful 4-years-old daughter and married with a great guy I met almost 13 years ago!
I've worked in retail, I teached Arts for a year at a primary school while studying for my (unfinished) Master in Education until I've decided to leave everything behind and moved to London with my husband (boyfriend, back then).
I'm a paper lover, a social media curious, a small business owner and a casual lifestyle blogger and in this beloved little space shares all things handmade from personalised Greeting Cards to Watercolour Portraits featuring Children, Families, Couples, Pets and also Planners, Diaries and Calendars designed by me.
PipaCrafts concept was sketched after my daughter was born in 2014 and I finally jumped on it with all my hopes in 2015.
PipaCrafts is bit of a chaotic yet positive, fun, creative 'homemade' place dedicated to unique keepsakes specially designed for your special occasion/celebration.
To finish, let me take a deep breath and welcome you to this very home-and-handmade beloved project.
