Two Busy Women! The Story of Busy Box

 

 Busy Box was created in December 2008 by two ladies: Maha Ayass and Lina Hamadeh , who were friends in Saudi Arabia since1989.They both had porcelain painting lessons for several years in Saudi Arabia.

Maha graduated from AUB with a degree in Electrical Engineering, Art was her passion that got her involved in creating Busy Box. In her free time she enjoys porcelain painting, knitting and crafts.
Lina graduated from AUB with a degree in Arabic literature and education. She decided to combine her teaching back-ground with her love for painting to help kids and adults discover their hidden artistic talents.

They both decided that it is high time for Lebanon to have a place for the whole family to come in and explore their artistic side! They also realized that being an entrepreneur gives them the freedom to express themselves and develop their concept in any way they choose, and having a goal, make their lives different and remarkably fulfilling.

This is how they created a fun and inspiring place called “BUSY BOX.”
