During the summer here in Phoenix, it’s hot. Like…triple digits HOT. We try to find things to do indoors or things involving water if we are outdoors. So when I hear of fun new places to try out around the valley, we jump at the opportunity. Over the weekend, we had the chance to visit a place where community meats creativity. A DIY studio space where people of all ages are artists! Here are Three Reasons to Attend Pinspiration… because it is a MUST.
1. The monthly rotating Pinspiration projects.
Each month the crafts and projects at the studio change based on top pinned projects on Pinterest. How cool is that? When you first walk in, they are all on display for you to choose from. Enjoy painting, jewelry making, up-cycled decor projects, clay, children’s crafts, and more…
All materials are provided for the projects and crafts offered at Pinspiration. So there is no fuss, no mess, and no excuses. The Pinspiration team sets you up with an iPad so that you have access to the Pinterest projects… meaning the directions for the projects come from the actual blogs themselves. LOVE that!! Way to promote Crafty DIY bloggers, Pinspiration.
2. The atmosphere and staff are top notch.
When I first walked into Pinspiration, I was blown away by the eye candy. I’m talking all the heart eyes. Beautiful inspiration (or “Pinspiration”) everywhere you look. It is absolutely beautiful inside. I’d have to say that my three favorite pieces were the hanging paint brushes, the penny counter tops, and the wine bottle water fountain. Just gorgeous.
I’ll be honest when I say that I have pretty high expectations for customer service. Probably because I worked in the industry for years, but regardless, the bar is high. The girls at Pinspiration were awesome. They were friendly, helpful, attentive, fun, and it is obvious they love their job. That speaks volumes to me. Not only were they attentive to my needs, but they made sure my daughter was taken care of as well. They spoke to her at eye level, made her giggle, complimented her crafts… really went above and beyond. I can’t tell you how much my 7 year old enjoyed herself.
3. It’s the perfect place for friends and family of all ages.
Pinspiration caters to both children and adults. There are a variety of crafts and workshops offered every month to satisfy anyone’s preferences and skill levels. Pinspiration has an open studio plus a private event room and Arizona’s first splatter room. They offer creative workshops, DIY kits, Splatter Parties, Summer Camp, birthdays, milestone events (baby showers, bachelorette parties, etc.), corporate team building, schools and community (non-profit group event, Girl Scouts, Teachers Night Out, etc.), and more. They also have a beer and wine bar where you can order drinks.
Have I convinced you? Isn’t it awesome?! We honestly can’t wait to go back. I can see future Girl’s Nights with crafting and even homeschool group field trips in the spatter room!
When we attended Pinspiration over the weekend, we were lucky enough to be apart of the Cheers to the Ears (Disney) workshop. I can’t even begin to tell you what an awesome time my daughter and I had. The workshop was held in the private event room and was decorated so cute with all things Mickey. No detail was skipped! The cost of the workshop was for one adult and one child and included a tea party with snacks (adorable Mickey sandwiches, popcorn, and tea), 3 crafts (Mickey/Minnie ears, a wand, and an autograph book), cupcake and cookie decorating, and a special visit from Tinkerbell herself! She even handed out Pixie Dust and gift bags and signed the kids’ autograph books. It was a super magical evening and well worth the cost. Before leaving, my daughter told me she wasn’t ready to go because she was having SO much fun. We can’t wait to go back!
