The Artsy Craftsy explores & shares all things creative. It doesn't fit in ONE specific box. Our intention is to inspire creative wellness & living through DIY crafts, creative arts and handmade.

Becoming The Artsy Craftsy

Started off as a blog in 2008, Shia Lynn was determined to start The Artsy Craftsy after noticing there were no Malaysian website or blogs on DIY arts and crafts niche. The aim was to document Shia Lynn's exploration and to offer the platform as a support to those who are embarking on a similar self-discovery journey. She covered assorted creative topics, while sharing her thoughts on how creativity helped her with her self-development. As the blog grew, Shia Lynn continued to empower people to combine creativity and wellness through the joy of making. Shia Lynn also featured like-minded people in the scene, mainly Malaysian artists, crafters and makers. 

In 2014, Shia Lynn entered The Artsy Craftsy in the DiGi WWWOW Awards Malaysia and was selected as one of the Top 10 finalists in the content category. Finally, in 2015, The Artsy Craftsy became a full-fledge platform to cultivate creativity through content, community engagement and activities. 

At The Artsy Craftsy, we believe in small wins everyday! Thanks to the pandemic, the year 2021 marked as an awakening for us as The Artsy Craftsy evolved and embraced its calling to becoming a community-first platform. Our next milestone is to make sure that we turn the pioneer T.A.C name into a resourceful platform of content and listings.

We give thanks to the support of some of our fans-turned-friends, because of them The Artsy Craftsy remains one of the most go-to names in the Malaysian arts and crafts community
