Four times a year, we here at The Crybaby Club create a subscription box full of art and products that creatives in our very own community have created. Our hope for these boxes is that it spreads not only love, but also helps promote the wonderful souls among us.
For each Crybaby Subscription Box, we think that it’s very important to highlight the makers and the movers that made each box happen. (The newest box just went on pre-order TODAY in the shop!) The purpose of the box is to spread support and love while also supporting creatives and their endeavors. These are their stories.
Phaedra first found The Crybaby Club on Instagram and knew she wanted to get creatively involved in some way because the dialogue of embracing your emotions stood out to her.
"Being in the creative industry I think is a very cathartic way of dealing with feelings," Phaedra said. "It's nice to be able to approach them in a way where you get to express yourself through your work without having to have the conventional sit down, serious chat."
For the subscription box itself, Phaedra wanted to create a print that lifted up other women's senses of self worth, so she created a mermaid print that reads, "Plenty more fish in the sea--but I'm a mermaid."
"i just wanted to make something that kind of resonated with girls and their self worth," Phaedra said. "it's a bit of a 'good luck replacing me!' vibe."
Phaedra just launched her new clothing line, which has been an interesting transition for her to make from the art she's been working on for the past few years.
"It's lots of fun, vibrant and slightly creepy prints that are totally empowering," Phaedra said.
