So many things to create, so little time to create it!!

I have been designing and creating things for as long as I can remember. I have a huge appetite for learning new things and trying my hand at creating them. Many years ago, I would participate in craft shows, etc. Over the course of raising my children, all born in a 3.5 year period, they were my main priority. Being the industrious type, it didn't take me long to bring my children into my creative world and started making items with them sitting at the table with me making their own items. Now that they are grown, my grandchildren have taken the place at the table where my children once created. I am always surprised at how capable even the tiniest hands can be. My oldest grandson was using the scroll saw at around 6 years and made his own wooden puzzles. He is now 10.

I am married to a very talented artist in his own right, an airbrush and oil painting artist. I am also very fortunate that he is so tolerant of my, what I call "creative A.D.D". He loves everything I do and never complains about all the clutter and chaos that monopolizes our Studio. He laughs and says, "That's my Corner, by the window." He's so great, He is never surprised when I start on a completely different project than I was on the day before.

As technology has progressed, especially with the intro of online sales shops such as Etsy, I have become increasingly active with my creativity. Although, after all these many, many years, I have still not settled on any one creative outlet. I still continue to learn all I can and attempt new things all the time. With the help of online tutorials and videos, it has become such a wonderful way for me to delve into many things I would not have had access to before.

"Out On a Whim" so accurately describes my method of creating. I remember my mother saying all the time, "There she goes again, she's out on another of her whims, wonder what she'll come up with today." This is where the origins of my Business and Shop name come from.
