Creativity & Design

Sometimes you need a creative outlet. And sometimes you're not creative enough and need some help. Here's businesses for both!


Day 3 | Wine & DESIGN

Day 3 already of our #COVA30in30 series of small businesses on the Peninsula and we're getting a little more creative with Christy at Wine & Design!! It's a fun and stress-relieving experience for anyone who wants to participate in step-by-step painting to create some awesome designs with friends and family. If you find yourself a little bored of the minutia of work or your kids want to release some creative energy, this is a great place to come decompress from the stress of everyday life.


DAY 17 | AR Workshop 

Day 17 of our #COVA30in30 has us getting crafty in Port Warwick with AR Workshop Newport News!! This awesome DIY Boutique offers classes and private parties to build tons of different home decor from scratch. Everything from pillows to oversized wooden panels are fair game - in any colors you want and with any design you choose. Come in, customize and create it yourself, or send them a design you'd like to purchase, no crafting required!

Check out their website for scheduling and info!

DAY 24 | Southern charms

It's Day 24 of our #COVA30in30 series and today's local business is shining bright with its beautiful custom jewelry. Southern Charms is a service that allows you to mold fingerprints (or paw prints!) and turn them into gorgeous, sentimental and truly one of a kind pieces of necklaces, bracelets and keychains. This is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to keep a little bit of their loved ones with them forever.
