About Us

Why collect something if you can’t enjoy it. From your photos, art, jewelry, stamps, money, sports memorabilia or items passed down to you, picked up along the way, or bought on a journey, everything looks great in custom frames. How about that box of items you pull out of the closet or from under the bed every few years, just to look and reminisce… Then put back to look again in the future. Well, bring us that box!

We will design a conversation piece or display, which you, your family and friends can enjoy forever. Yes! We just stopped time. Now, generations not yet born can enjoy what you had hidden in a box. That’s the beauty and reason for framing something. 3-D or flat, it doesn’t matter. That is what we do. WELCOME TO THE CREATIVE PLAY!  

I, Lonnie Voss, President of the Creative Play, would like to thank you for visiting our site and welcome you to come visit us here in Costa Mesa, California – part of beautiful Orange County. If you don’t live nearby you can take a virtual tour on our website, or mail us the items you’d like to have framed. We are a sports memorabilia store and a custom picture framing store, all in one. Truly a one-of-a-kind store. We have been in business for 27 years and were here to serve you. From custom frames to display boxes, we make the best! We work with many athletes in and out of the store.We are friendly and we like our customers to make themselves at home. We also have a little dog named Isabella to greet you at the door. I also would like to invite you to visit my wife Patricia’s full-service VOSS SALON right next door. So call us, email us, fax us or just stop on in and take a look. We are here to greet you and help you with any questions you might have. We also offer gift certificates for both The Creative Play and Voss Salon.

Thanks for visiting,


Our Mascot Isabella
