Being creative and being a mom- the two can go hand it hand, but often we moms feel like we have to neglect our creative selves in order to keep up with the demands of motherhood. How can we combine the two?
Each Monday Creativity Solutions for Moms will focus on how you can find time and make space for creativity, and how to incorporate creative practice into your everyday life.
I’d love your input for this series! What are your obstacles to creativity? How do you combine motherhood and creating? What works for you and what are your creative blocks?
I am not some creativity guru. I am working on these problems myself. To help you feel at home I made short video that shows you my biggest creative obstacle:

you can we can get creative!
