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!”
It’s a pleasure to introduce Rima.

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

I knew that Amy was my-kinda-chick when her intense love for emojis shone through in a hilarious Instagram message chain at the start of our e-friendship. Things progressed quickly and we moved our relationship onto emails. We essentially solved all the world’s problems from our phones and desktops. Amy is authentic. Passionate. Creative. And funny. I wish she lived around the corner instead of across the country. Her life in the Outback fascinates me and how she does it all with 4 little people…. mind-boggling. Meet Amy. Read More
