Guest Blog Post by Roanna, owner of CreativiTee and rofe designs

Have you been struggling to find ways to reconnect with friends since the Pandemic began? Is it hard to remember how to we used to socialize pre-Covid? I totally feel you! Sometimes it’s hard to come up with something to do that will help give us that little push we need back into our social world. But, we are all seeking out our community and wanting to find those sweet connections again.

That is one of the main reasons we created our little creative space downtown: CreativiTee and rofe designs. We wanted to have a place to bring people together where they can put their phones down and really connect while creating something that will help them remember all the fun they had together.

We are a creative space based in downtown Salem where you can just walk in anytime we are open to create your own t-shirts. That means that if you have an idea for something you have always wanted to put on a t-shirt, you can walk in and spend some time creating it just how you want. We are a perfect place to reconnect with friends you haven’t seen in a bit and you can nab a table to create and chat.

Host a ladies night, or team-building activity for your work crew.

Need a place to bring your girl gang to for a fun ladies night out? We do that too! You can reserve an evening where we are open for just you and your friends and we will carve the evening around how you want the night to flow. Or maybe you need to get your work team to reconnect after having worked so long just virtually. We are a perfect space for your team-building as well. And you will even walk out with t-shirts that you can wear for casual Friday! Ha! Or possibly you have a friend and you want to throw a memorable baby shower for them – everyone can come in and create a sweet personalized onesie for the new arrival. The options are limitless and it is something anyone can do – ages 2 to 92 – come one come all!

Sometimes we hear adults saying they are “not creative” or “not artistic”. But you don’t have to worry about either of those things – there is no perfection in art – and there are no mistakes either. We are here to help you figure out how to reach into your ideas and let go a little bit. We all could use some time to unwind and tap into a side of ourselves that maybe needs some attention!

Hi there! My name is Roanna and I am the owner of CreativiTee and rofe (pronounced roe-fae) designs. I have been drawing and making things for as long as I can remember – always trying to find new ways to bring people together and get them to come out of their shell. I love meeting new people and being a catalyst for some community time. Come say hello if you are hanging out in downtown Salem.
