 The Creative


Corrie-NDPhotoshootCorrie ‘Chip’ Sams has enjoyed creativity from a young age.  Homeschooled through all the grades with her sister, she had plenty of opportunity for creating, building, and crafting. She is still surprised her mother let her play with the sewing machine at such a young age.  Her early creations were anything but pretty, but laid the foundation and skills for further adventures.

‘Chip’ has done everything from leathercraft to writing fiction, sewing to web design, miniature horse tack to watercolors, and anything else that caught her fancy. She checked out so many ‘how-to’ books from the library that a librarian once told her she had checked out every oversized book in the system.  Eventually she decided that as much as she enjoyed variety, it was better to pick a handful of creative things to focus on.

Corrie-Photoshoot-3A huge part of Chip’s creativity is in her music. She plays and teaches both accordion and piano at Able To Play Music in Spokane, WA. Her musical journey also started at a young age, first with piano lessons that she disliked greatly, then with an accordion which her Father purchased for her at the age of 12.  She really had no idea what an accordion was at the time – but really loves the versatility and musical expression possible with the instrument now.

Chip is happy and blessed to be involved in ‘The Portatos | Modernized Accordion Band‘ and loves sharing musical creativity with those around her.  Because God is creative, Chip wants to share the creativity God gifted her with others in her life and online.  Chipmunk’s Corner is one result of that desire.
