Design Custom Party Supplies for Your Holiday Gatherings

🙋‍♀️ Hi! I’m ClĂ udia, a graphic designer and watercolor artist from Barcelona who loves teaching other creatives how to make a living from their talents. After years working for design studios, I decided to quit and start freelancing under the name of Heartmade.es – where I also sell my own creations.

I’m clearly a multi-passionate person, and I love turning my hobbies into businesses. From handmade soaps to kimonos and online trainings, I’ve tried it all and more!
Now I mostly spend my days creating digital products that I sell through multiple platforms and bring me passive income, while I teach and mentor other creatives from all around the world how to make the same.
