Get to Know Creative Traveler FM
March 8th, 2023 I was asked to be on "The Mike Is Yours with Travis" on 95.9FM. Indira with Love Your Local FM was back to introduce the community to more small local businesses that we need to know about. I was interviewed first, followed by the owner of Kota Botanics. What a fun experience! Jump over to the podcast recording on Google or Apple and hear our stories.
About Creative Traveler
I always enjoyed being creative. From art classes in school, to projects for 4-H, and just playing around in my early 20's, painting has always been something I enjoyed. Prior to having children, I dabbled with plastic canvas and knitting, but never stopped creating. As with new mothers, I let my life be consumed by my children. I was a stay-at-home mom of two little kids and a cat in a tiny house. After they started school, time became more abundant, but depression and anxiety kept me from pursuing work outside the home.
In the summer of 2015, we purchased a new house with more space. I felt it was time for me to start contributing financially. I wanted something flexible so I could be involved in my kids' activities. Something that was no real pressure... I hated the idea of trying to get my friends to buy more things they didn't need just because I was selling jewelry, makeup, or kitchen supplies. In November, I was invited to a painting party - one of those paint & sip type events. It was so much fun! It stirred up that desire to be creative. I went to another party in December and I knew that was it! I was going to become an Independent Gallery Guide with Gallery On The Go!
Gallery On The Go is a mobile painting party business that was started in 2010 by some stay-at-home moms in Colorado who were looking for something fun and affordable to do with their friends. Over the first 7-1/2 years they grew from three guides in the Denver area to nearly 160 guides across 28 states!
