Hello and welcome to PipaCrafts !
My name is Filipa, I’m 31-years-old and I’m from Lisbon, Portugal - I'm portuguese and the United Kingdom is 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 started and completed my Fine Arts Degree at the University of Fine Arts in Lisbon.
I'm also a mum to a wonderful 5 1/2-years-old daughter and married with a great guy I met almost 14 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 very casual blogger in this beloved little space where I share all things handmade from greeting cards to watercolour portraits of children, families, couples, pets and I also create planners, diaries and calendars designed by me.
PipaCrafts concept was sketched after my daughter was born 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.
