is a website devoted to equipping mothers and care-givers with inspiration to get creative with their kids.

Samantha, writer of WhimsyRoo blog and owner of the WhimsyRoo Etsy shop, is a mom of one. Her daughter, referred to as “Roo,” is four years old and loves to craft.

Roo is the inspiration and motivation behind much of the content. Crafting together is their favorite way to bond and spend special time together, though the benefits of crafting go far beyond that!

Crafting has many benefits for both kids and adults. And Samantha firmly believes it is accessible and essential for everyone to craft regularly. She wants to call people from all walks of life to a creative lifestyle, regardless of talent or time constraints.

Samantha has always been a creative individual and is constantly growing in her crafting skills. She loves to try something new and immerse herself in a project like sewing a dress, painting a landscape, or hand-lettering a thank you card.

When she is not blogging or crafting or chasing her four-year-old, Samantha is a dance teacher. She has been teaching dance since she was 15 years old and teaches styles including ballet, jazz, contemporary, and tap. She lives in Dallas with Roo, her husband, two dogs, and two cats.
