We're often asked how we came up with the idea of painting and sipping. Here's the scoop:
Jess (daughter) asked Raye (Mother) on a Mother-daughter date. The 'outing' was a surprise.
Raye had heard about this painting and sipping before and had always wanted to try it, being
a closet artist herself. So, when Jess pulled up in front of the Denver art studio, Raye was
elated. She was so surprised and delighted that she almost peed her pants. (not really, but almost).
They had soooo much fun! Raye didn't stop talking about this surprise date that Jess had taken
her to for months...then space became available in the quaint historic building in Historic Downtown Erie,
a perfect place to begin the journey and Raye called up Jess and presented the idea of creating their own paint and sip art studio!
The name was chosen from over 100 possibilities from their brainstorming session.
Here's how Terry became involved:
Raye need a 'little' help with setting a few things up...that only a guy could do...you know what those are...
He agreed to ONE WEEK.He's been here ever since.:) Lucky us! He handles, not only the guy stuff,but the web stuff,the internet stuff, the social media marketing stuff,the paintbrush stuff etc.He's the go-to guy....everytime.
Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Studio opened in January of 2011. We LOVE it. So will you!
Oh, so in a nutshell. Jess took Raye on a Mother Daughter date, they had so much fun that they
opened their own! Mission here is to bring ART to the masses!
