I love how Abbi encourages creativity in our everyday lives. (Even those of us who may not think of ourselves as creative.) The podcast is fun and there is always something practical to take away and apply right away. One thing I really appreciate is that the podcast is the perfect length with helpful/encouraging content that I can listen to while doing the dishes or running errands.
Fresh and Inspiring!
Whether you are a seasoned artist or just someone who’s creativity comes out in little bursts here and there (like me), this podcast is super relatable and enjoyable to listen to. Not too long or too short - perfect for that 20-30 minute drive. Highly recommend!
I’m not even a fan of podcasts, but this is one voice to hear if you want inspiration and encouragement! This is good stuff not just for mamas, but also for anyone who has dreams and ideas that have taken a back seat. We’re all creative in one way or another, and Creative Mama helps you find ways to express that creativity and not lose yourself in the day to day busyness of life.
