Creatively Yours was officially "born" in May, 1992, but its roots began more than 40 years ago when we began making original Christmas ornaments for friends and relatives. We have worked with all kinds of media--fabric, wood, pompoms, ribbon, rhinestones, paper--and lots and lots of glue! From ornaments, we branched into gift items, candles (made our own), floral arrangements, miniature scenes on penny match boxes and magnets. These were sold at local Holiday Sales called Boutiques. We continue to participate in the Boutiques today.
When the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, opened in 1992, several stores consigned our handmade items and magnets, farm/tractor magnets and notepads, and purchased sports magnets. We have also been selling our products wholesale at the Minneapolis Gift Mart since 2002.
We are a family-operated business. Our daughter Amy Jo and her Jon (yes, we have two "John's" in our family) help us with new products, marketing and computer "stuff" in their off hours, evenings and weekends. We also have two other very special family members, Christie and Jason, who often help and who call us Mom and Dad. Their partners, spouses and children help make our lives full and gratifying. The inspiration and support of friends, fellow crafters and sales professionals have provided us with the opportunity to grow our business into our own website (thanks Dick and Todd and Jeff)!
As a small family business, we are pleased and proud to offer our products to you-whether you are an individual or a business looking for new and different products. We work directly with you to make notepads, recipe cards, and magnets for a special occasion, or a look that identifies your team, town, region or state. If the product is from Creatively Yours, it has been proudly made in the USA!
Our primary goal is to keep our customers happy with our quality products and to produce and deliver them in a timely manner. You must be satisfied with your purchase or we will "make it right". Our existing customers are special and we work hard to keep their business.
Many of our products can be customized and/or personalized for you at no additional charge; either from scratch or using your logo, artwork, photos, etc. Proofs will be created and emailed to you for approval. Let us know how we can help you create products that just can't be found elsewhere!
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you'll visit us often!
