CRAFT WITH ME

OUR CREATOR

IMG_9720.jpg

My name is Caroline and I am 14 years old. I created Craft with Me because I am very passionate about helping others. It brings me such joy to watch children connect through art. Craft with Me is so rewarding because it has created a platform that allows me to impact children in a positive way.
