makeme Makeme is a DIY studio that offers classes, camps, and private events for kids & adults. Less pinning - more making! Makeme studio is Tampa Bay's FIRST DIY Studio!

It is with a heavy heart that we were forced to close our physical location due to Covid - however we're still at it with crafty kits, virtual lessons, mobile parties, and other arty shenanigans!

Happy Friday makers!

We know, we know, long time no hear! I wanted to take a moment to bring you all up to speed as to what is happening in makeme land.

As many of you know we were unfortunately forced to close the doors to our physical location May 2020 amidst the pandemic. Ever the optimists, we then dove head-first into translating our Summer Camp plans into virtual lessons and art crates. Without missing a beat we immediately transitioned into making well over 500 masks while releasing Halloween & Christmas Craft Kits. Needless to say, it was about time for a bit of a break to breathe, process the devastating loss of our studio and heal some heartbreak after closing the magical physical location weโ€™d worked so hard to bring to fruition.

After teaching in a few different capacities (first at the amazing Indi-ED and later with the fabulous Shorecrest Preparatory School) I, Melissa (the crazy person behind this makeme madness), have finally found a wonderful new home. Iโ€™m super excited to announce that Iโ€™m now the Education Manager at the new Museum of American Arts & Crafts Movement (MAACM) right here in beautiful downtown St. Pete!

I have been settling in since August and helping to develop amazing programming and events for the young (and young at heart) in conjunction with the museum. Speaking of which, it just so happens our first Family Day event will be kicking off TOMORROW, October 2nd. Iโ€™m reaching out to personally invite you and yours to my new โ€œhome base.โ€

MAACM Family Days include fun artmaking and learning extension activities in the Education Studio, guided family-oriented tours of selections from our incredible collection, and specially scheduled performances in our lovely auditorium (puppets, magic shows, and more!) I'll include an eventbrite link below so you can find out allll the info.

Let me tell yโ€™all - the Museumโ€™s Education Studio is absolutely STUNNING. It is fully-stocked with the same kinds of wonderful supplies you knew and loved from our studio, but with a gorgeous โ€œpenthouseโ€ view of Downtown St. Pete. Each time you visit weโ€™ll be debuting something more to see. Speaking of which, the museum itself is a work of art not to be missed.

Makeme as a brand, a concept, and a love for sharing artmaking is far from over - but rather in โ€œhibernationโ€ mode until I settle into my Museum responsibilities. Plans in the very near future include the much-awaited (and much-delayed) roll out of our virtual studio (a subscription-based streaming service of over 150 of our favorite lessons) AND return to in person artmaking. Our cutie pie camper, Miss Clementine, has been blissfully slumbering until we once again feel safe offering parties and events within the close quarters of her vintage awesomeness.

Soโ€ฆ now you know! Please know that yes - we miss you too! Terribly. Hugely. Muchly!!!

Thank you for continuing to keep us in your hearts and top of mind when you need a little sumpinโ€™ crafty in your life. We hope to be back at it very soon. In the meantime โ€“ come see me at the Museum!

Love, glitter, and googly eyes,

Melissa

I had the most fantastic ugly cry this week. If you look closely you may see a familiar logo within these amazing upcycled totes!

They were gifted to me by one of the sweetest and most talented makers in St. Pete - Danielle LeTendre of Spring Green Handbags. Iโ€™d donated some of our large market banners to her after the studio closed thinking I couldnโ€™t bear looking at them anymore. Danni turned around and made them into items Iโ€™ll use and cherish - and canโ€™t STOP looking at.

Thank you sweet lady ๐Ÿ’— for the most thoughtful gift.

And thank YOU to all of the sweet customers whoโ€™ve queried about โ€œwhatโ€™s nextโ€ for our little studio. We have some exciting things percolating and hope to share more very soon.

My daughter loved painting her masterpiece from the #1 Fan Kids Painting Kit. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful experience and sharing it with your non-Florida friends. Highly recommended--great materials, perfect pricing, & fabulous customer service!
How do we coordinate a pickup for the items we purchased in May?
This is a sad post, as we say goodbye to several of our local businesses that have already closed their brick-and-mortar locations, or are about to close tomorrow/this week. ๐Ÿ˜ข There are a couple that will live on online, or in another guise (details about them below). Even though we're optimists, and a force for positivity, we're also realists. The reality is that more of our local businesses will be closing. ๐Ÿ’” We're about to head into summer, the toughest time of year for them (even without COVID-19). We understand that times are hard for everyone, but we ask that you please ๐Ÿ‘‰ Think Local First ๐Ÿ‘ˆ whenever you spend any money you do have. ๐Ÿ‘Š We thank all of the following for all they've done to make our city even more amazing! ๐Ÿ™ โค๏ธ makeme - They've closed their studio and will be pivoting to mobile & kit-based instruction. Learn more here: ๐Ÿ”— www.makemestudio.com/ttfn ๐Ÿ”— (Camp crates are 20% off if you order before Monday, June 1st) โค๏ธ Roots of the Sun - They've closed their tea house & apothecary shop, and have transitioned to online: ๐Ÿ”— www.rootsofthesun.com ๐Ÿ”— โค๏ธ Salt-Light ART - TOMORROW, May 28th, is the last day they'll be open on The 600 Block of St. Petersburg (20% OFF everything but jewelry + an additional 5% OFF if you wear your mask ๐Ÿ˜ท). Some of Mary's jewelry will be available at neighbor, MISRED Outfitters, and she may sell some online here: ๐Ÿ”— www.saltlightartboutique.com ๐Ÿ”— โค๏ธ Thread Appeal - FRIDAY, May 29th is their last day - 50% OFF everything in the store before they close their doors for good. Not pictured, but now also closed: Brew D Licious (Purveyors of No Name Java Coffee) | Peace of Yoga | Starfish Food Truck (stopped operating on May 1st)
Weโ€™re so thankful for Melissa and her amazing team at makeme. We just picked up a ton of arts and crafts supplies for our program. Itโ€™s a sad day as they close up shop, but we know this Boss Babe is going to come back in the most amazing and unique way! **this action shot was pulled from the awesome photo gallery from an event many moons back.
I know it is an understatement to say you ladies are swamped right now, but are there any plans to ship (mail) the summer camp kits?
We have two community shoutouts in one: Weโ€™ve always Lโ™ฅ๏ธVED the art supply wall at makeme, so we jumped at the chance to have some team photos shot with that backdrop. Makeme was founded at the same time as NOMAD, and Melissa Mudd, the owner, has always been so supportive of our work in so many ways. Sheโ€™s one of the most creative people we know, and sheโ€™s making lots of changes at makeme right now, so weโ€™re really excited to see what sheโ€™s got up her sleeve! Todd Bates (of Todd Bates Photo) is who we call when we need great photos. Heโ€™s so easy to work with, produces consistently stellar work, and has a great, big community-focused heart. We are grateful to have him in our circle. Thanks Melissa and Todd, from the whole NOMAD crew!
How itโ€™s made: LEGO Minifigures. The LLAMA!!! ๐Ÿฆ™๐Ÿ’›โ—๏ธ Thanks, makeme!
