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!
