Welcome to Morning Glory Emporium. My name is Wendi and I like to occupy my free time with random acts of creativity. I feel life is to short not to learn as many things as you can. My quest for the creative arts started at a young age when my mother taught me how to crochet and sew and my father taught me photography. Now I have a wonderful supportive husband who has the patience to support my creative whims and even shares his workshop with me.

Welcome to Morning Glory Emporium. My name is Wendi and I like to occupy my free time with random acts of creativity. I feel life is to short not to learn as many things as you can. My quest for the creative arts started at a young age when my mother taught me how to crochet and sew and my father taught me photography. Now I have a wonderful supportive husband who has the patience to support my creative whims and even shares his workshop with me.

One of the first random acts of creativity I learned on my own was the art of scroll sawing. We were in a local shop where we came across some scroll sawn ornaments and I glibly commented... "I could do that" and the next day he brought me home a used scroll saw from a friend at work. My first items were a frog and a whale. As I got better and made my first "candle boxes" I brought them into work to just to show my coworkers and they wanted to know how much I would sell them for and it all began from there.

The next act of creativty was to learn to spin yarn. That caught my curiosity when I was looking for information on a spinning wheel my sister-in-law has. I came across some YouTube video's on spindle spinning. I watched them for hours and was intrigued and thought "I could do that". I found some instructions on making a spindle and asked my husband to make one for me. Once he did I gave it a try. That took some practice and a lot more YouTube watching. Then one day my husband surprised me with an antique spinning wheel in my kitchen. We worked on it to make it spin-able and I was hooked. Then my birthday came a long and my husband bought me a new Kromski Minstrel. While I still have a lot to learn about the art of spinning I'm am getting better at it and am having a lot of fun.

There are many other creative arts I have yet to learn so I have to get busy now.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop and read my story.
