Today we’d like to introduce you to Kellyann Alvarez.
Hi Kellyann, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
The journey of starting Kreative Kreations by KK started from buying a toolbox to make jewelry out of resin for my daughter. Yes, it sounds crazy, but after playing with it, I looked at my husband and said, “I should open my own business!”. That same day we started looking for names for the business and ideas of what we could do. With my husband’s support, I bought our first piece of equipment: a cutting machine. Later a friend helped us buy our first heat press. What I thought was a “crazy idea” started blooming! We started selling coquitos (a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas drink), ornaments, and t-shirts for the Christmas season. This is when Kreative Kreations by KK started growing and evolving into what our main business is today: creating tangible memories with customized gifts for any special occasion. We specialize in customized services such as t-shirts, baskets, lodging decorations, wood signs, and much more. I never thought we would be at the level that we are right now! We have bookings for services up to November! We are so grateful for the love and support everyone continues to show us.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Definitely, this has not been a smooth journey. As a mother of a nine-year-old and an infant, it certainly has been a challenge to juggle starting a new business while ensuring my family remains my first priority. However, seeing my once small vision becoming so much more than I had imagined brings me much joy. The continued support from my husband and family, my background in customer service, and tenacious spirit have been instrumental in the success of Kreative Kreations by KK so far. I am definitely excited to see how it grows and evolves.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Kreative Kreations by KK?
After being laid off as a Cast Member at Disney, I really missed being able to “make magic”; I knew I had to find my own way. Kreative Kreations by KK has become my vehicle for making “new magic.” We work closely with our clients in creating the perfect customized gifts. We love to listen and take care in making the vision of our customers a reality. We don’t think of an order as a transaction. Each customer is unique and special, and we treat them as such. We want our customers to return and recommend us because we listen and exceed expectations. That is what sets us apart: our customer service and special attention to detail. We are the creators of “pencil box baskets” for kids; one of my top sellers right now. These are personalized kid baskets filled with snacks and a plush toy or a coloring book inside of a pencil box. Another service – and one of our favorites – is our themed room/door decoration service. Imagine taking a vacation to Orlando and, upon arriving at your lodging, surprising your family with themed/customized decorations and personalized baskets to celebrate the special occasion. It makes us so happy when our customers share the excitement their family experienced from the surprise and how this became the highlight of their vacation experience. I’m truly humbled by how priceless this is.
