Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day Through blogging and Instagramming, I’ve been introduced to an amazing Virtual Sisterhood of Creative Ladies.

The Oh Creative Lady series is your chance to meet these incredible, kind-hearted, inspiring <insert ALL the happy, positive adjectives HERE> women.

Somebody recently asked me what motivated me to start the Oh Creative Lady series. I replied that it’s mainly because I’m nosy. I love getting an insight into the lives of others. I especially love seeing how ladies balance their creative callings with motherhood. It’s always interesting to see how these mummas then infuse creativity into the lives of their littles. Viv from @papercutmum embarked on the coolest project with her boys. I loved finding out that when she’s not cutting bits of paper with her boys, she works…. well, I’ll let her do the talking.

Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day Through blogging and Instagramming, I’ve been introduced to an amazing Virtual Sisterhood of Creative Ladies.

The Oh Creative Lady series is your chance to meet these incredible, kind-hearted, inspiring <insert ALL the happy, positive adjectives HERE> women.

Did you know that I originally started this blog as a part of my dream of becoming a picture book author? ‘Tis true.
I have a few manuscripts gathering dust, and Life seems to have taken my blog and I slightly off-course from these aspirations. I have taken so much inspiration from this interview with Australian children’s author, Zanni Louise.
Even if you aren’t an aspiring picture book author, I can guarantee that you will find beauty, wisdom and inspiration in Zanni’s words. (I’m IN LOVE with her thoughts on Motherhood and Creativity. Talk about a shift in perspective for me!)

Life / Oh Creative Lady

Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day Do you follow Catalina from Red Violet Studio on Instagram? If not, I’ll wait here with my cup of tea whilst you go and check out her feed. It feels as though each time I comment on her posts, I write something like “I wish you lived closer so I could send my kids to your studio.” I obviously need to work on the originality of my Instagram commenting, but Catalina’s feed is always filled with such glorious creativity for little people. She has just set up a home studio that makes me sigh with it’s loveliness.
It is a pleasure to introduce Catalina.

Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day I dream of, one day, going on a huge trip that involves visiting the art studios of some of the amazing ladies I’ve met online.

OH CREATIVE LADY: MEET JOANNA FROM THE BLUE BARN

March 9, 2017

Life / Oh Creative Lady

Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day Joanna from The Blue Barn and I have been Instagram friends from way back. I love her love-soaked tales and colourful insights into raising her brood of 4 in the countryside, fostering creativity in the Big Blue Barn on her property. I once asked her why it mentioned in her profile that she was an “occasional rally car driver.” She replied that it was an accurate description of the way she was often tearing around in her car, shuttling kids between activities. That’s when I knew she was my kind of lady. How fun it would be to hang out with her in The Barn, elbow deep in paint. One day.
Until then, it’s a pleasure to introduce this Oh Creative Lady, Joanna.

Oh Creative Lady - Oh Creative Day Brace yourselves.
This Oh Creative Lady has an incredible way with words. Her purpose behind what she does is powerful and humbling. I strongly suggest you go and make yourself a cuppa and perhaps grab a few biscuits or a sweet treat. Make yourself comfortable, settle in and let the eloquence and thoughtfulness of Rima’s words wash over you. I’ve returned to her words so many times as I’ve put this post together. So many of her thoughts had me exclaiming “YES! EXACTLY!”
