Create Whimsy shares the stories of makers to inspire everyday creativity.
Our approach to content inspires creativity in several formats. Interviews of makers share insights into their creative processes, give us sneak peeks into their studios and share some of the products that enhance their work. Curated content and guest posts share details into a specific process, technique or project to inspire our audience.
