Well that didn't work. We sent Jess to Florida for a much needed vacation. She came back, packed up and MOVED there! Don't worry, you'll see Jess again, she works
remotely on the computer and will fly in to teach occasionally!
We love you! ..... Mom

Real wine glasses, not those plastic cups (that's no way to serve good wine!)
Soft & cushy swivel stools, better for your butt !
Funky playlists, our sounds are 2nd to none, Jess makes sure of that by mixing it up regularly
The sing off. Who says you just have to paint and sip here? You get to SING, too!
A 40 foot long, curving stainless steel bar - so cool, you gotta see it to believe it!
The 50 foot long Graffiti Wall where you get to do your 'thang'.
The famous Yay! magnets! What's your Yay! thing?
THE cute and whimsical Flying Pigs! Need we say more?
Artsy Aprons - find the saying that resonates with you and WEAR it for the evening! Bitch! Hunk! Betty 'Boop! Queen Bee!
Strings and strings and strings of Christmas lights, when it's not even Christmas!
Online registration, making it easy to sign up for classes and convenient, sign up when you want to!
The 'drying' station. Let's keep paint off your car seats!
Order in pizza - when your tummy says 'feed me' !
Whimsy, always thinking outside the box...for your painting and sipping pleasure!
Whimsy's GRAFFITi Wall !
Only at Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Studio
in Historic Downtown Erie (Colorado, of course)
can you WRITE on the WALLS!
Paint/Draw/Sign the 50 foot long wall.
Leave your mark, your art, your tagline,
your favorite saying, your wit or even
your phone number. Leave your one liners,
your drunken confusionisms or just the date you
came to paint, sip and play at Whimsy. The wall
is YOURS to do with what you want!
(no profanity, please, this is a rethpekable,
respethicalbe, respectable place) :)
Soon, Whimsy will have regular 'Open' hours! You'll be able to walk right in, look around and book a painting event right there at the counter. We have spent the last three days moving our offices into the back of Whimsy to make this possible! Just another change in the long string of changes being made to constantly improve to better serve you.
The drink and eats menu continually is being improved and updated, too. Terry & Tammy are considering adding edible flowers to the martinis and Terry has decided to occasionally make the smoothitinis. Yum! Adding the new and various Absolute Vodka flavors keeps them interesting as well.
Our many clever and talented artists continue to bring paintings from flowers to fru-fru and sea to mountains. If you have something you've always wanted to paint, tell us on facebook or write us an email. We'll entertain any idea!
Oh, this blogging is fun! :)
We're working every day to make Whimsy to best possible choice for evening entertainment. The art is improving (thanks Jess & Eileen), the martini list is improving (Thanks Terry & Tammy), the facebook presence is improving (thanks Jess) and the website is continually being updated and improved (Thanks Terry & Jess). What about me? I'm 'supervising'. LOL
What's the BEST part of owning Whimsy? The people and the art. I just love to walk down the aisles at the end of a painting event and see all of the variations for that evening's painting. The artists blow me away with their creativity and clever ideas, making it their own! I've even stepped back, watching the gifted-ness come through, getting tears in my eyes, watching everyone have so much fun. That's what it's all about. That's why we created Whimsy. Thanks People, YOU make my day! Raye
Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Studio just opened in Historic Downtown Erie in January 2011.
Today is April 13 and THIS is our first blog! We hope you will find our blogging helpful, informative and fun....oh, and whimsical, too! We were mulling over the idea of a opening a paint and sip art studio when my daughter, Jess, surprised me one evening of just that, painting and sipping. We had so much fun that we couldn't stop talking about it,at least I couldn't. It was the best surprise ever. (Thanks, Jess, for a very fun night out!) Plans to open began fervently in October, practice events were held in December and after the bugs were all worked out, we opened in January. The bugs are STILL being tweaked - to make this the most fun and enjoyable experience, memories to last a lifetime.
More next time. Raye
