The world as we know it today has become so fast paced that we don’t get to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life. We don’t get to relax and explore our creative side, since we are always swamped with work. Although even with all of these changes, crafting or arts and crafts has become more and more popular.

Crafting, as defined by Wikipedia, is a pastime or a profession that requires some particular kind of skilled work. In a historical sense, particularly as pertinent to the Middle Ages and earlier, the term is usually applied to people occupied in small-scale production of goods, or their maintenance, for example by tinkers. The traditional terms craftsman and craftswoman are nowadays often replaced by artisan and rarely by craftsperson (craftspeople).

There are a lot of benefits to crafting. Highly repetitive activities such as knitting can be akin to meditation in their stress-relieving properties, according to Herbert Benson, MD, the world’s number-one expert on the relaxation response and its benefits. Also, you get to save since you need not buy something that you can actually make for half the price. Another benefit is that crafting provides a creative outlet for individuals. It can also serve as a bonding time for parents and their children. And lastly, you get that sheer satisfaction of making something.

Memory Crafters

A new craft box brand is in town and I think this is the first of its kind here in the Philippines! The box is from Memory Crafters and they want to bring all of those benefits to you. Each box will allow people to explore their creative side and provide outlets for their creativity. The service is basically sending you a box that contains a crafting project every month so that you enjoy the benefits of crafting!

Wait for an email on the payment instruction. Memory Crafters is currently developing their site, but as soon as it is up, we will notify you! Please visit them at http://memorycrafters.com.ph/ once it is up.

What month of subscription am I paying for?
We follow a “First Pay First Serve” policy in Memory Crafters. The sooner you pay, the earlier you are subscribed to your crafting box.

Will I know the content of the box I’ll be receiving?
Nope, you won’t! The Memory Crafters Box is supposed to be a monthly surprise for you! We won’t disclose the projects that will be featured every month prior to shipping them out.

How do you create the box for me?
Every month, we would have a theme. It could probably be in line with the holidays or events of a particular month. If you have any ideas or suggestions, you are free to send us an email via founders@memorycrafters.com.ph.

How do I reserve boxes in advance?
Each user account is differentiated by one email address. This means no ONE email address can have more than ONE Memory Crafters Box in a month’s time. However, if you want to purchase in advance you can simply pay upfront; the payment will be applied immediately to the next crafting box available (that you’re currently not allocated with). If you want a specific month – like your birthday month or Christmas – do email us at founders@memorycrafters.com.ph so that we can adjust your assignment, as long as it’s not yet sold out. :)

When can I expect my first box?
Memory Crafters Boxes are released monthly, generally within the 2nd and 3rd week of the month. Our first box will be released in April! You will receive your Memory Crafters Box depending on the month that you have been subscribed. Generally, because of the limited quantities of the Memory Crafters Box, subscribers have paid more or less one to two months in advance before receiving their first box. Thus, to ensure you get the box you want, do pay around 1.5 to 2 months before the month you like. Following our FIRST PAY CONFIRMED, FIRST SERVE policy, we will allocate you the box accordingly. Check your order confirmation for an estimated shipping date. All Memory Crafters Boxes ship from our Manila facilities and should arrive an estimated 1 – 3 business days (i.e., excluding weekends and holidays) after they ship. You will receive an email with a tracking number so you can follow your box’s progress.

How do I know which Box I’m subscribed to?
You can login to your memorycrafters.com.ph account and check the Memory Crafters Box tab for your Box subscription. Also, you can email founders@memorycrafters.com.ph to ask.
