I dropped the next podcast today. It’s all about Burn out…. what causes it and how to deal with it when you feel burnt out. I also give you ideas for finding inspiration. And lastly, there is a creative exercise for you to complete if you choose. I’m really excited about this one.
You can listen to the podcast here or become a subscriber on iTunes.
This is the last part (at least for now) of the series about raising creative kids. I loved this conversation with Kerstin Zurbrigg. We talked about how to make room in your daily life for creativity. And you know what? This applies to fostering creativity in the children in your life as well as your own creativity. And of course, there is a new creative exercise.
There are just a few days left until 2022. It’s been quite a year. I keep thinking how each time we think that “normal” life is right around the corner, we find out that the goal line has been moved.
Each year, I select a word or words that reflect my aspirations for the year. My words for 2021 were Resiliency and Choose Health. And so each time a choice came up, I would decide my direction based on these words. And for sure, I was resilient. Flying Goat Farm was resilient. We pivoted to provide better online access for customers. We had zoom meetings for groups of friends and knitting groups. We even took our in person classes and put them online. Each time there was a surge, we chose health by asking customers to mask up and to socially distance. It was important to us to provide a safe place for ourselves and for our customers.
My words for 2022? Well my word is Create. This means that I will continue to create beautiful yarn and roving. I will continue to create educational content, like these blogs, my podcast, my FaceBook LIVE Thursdays and classes that are in person and online. I promise to make that content relevant to you whether you are a knitter, crocheter, spinner or even any other crafter.
Do you have a word for 2022? I’d love to hear about it!!
in this part 2 of the mini-series on raising creative kids, Lisa talks with Annie Marshall, owner and founder of Veggie Annie, a catering company. We talk about developmental stages, cooking with kids and talking to children about what they have made (or not)!
This season is all about Creativity. As I was planning this season, I really wanted to include some conversations about raising creative kids. As a public school teacher, I’ve seen kids with lots of creative energy and some who would avoid any creative task. So I asked some friends to talk to me about raising their creative kids.
In this conversation with Dalis of Dancing Leaf Dyeworks, Lisa and Dalis talk about raising creative boys, being part of a creative family and as usual there is a fun exercise for you and your family can try to build your creative muscle.
You can listen here or subscribe on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
What is holding you back from your creativity? Lisa talks about the obstacles to your creativity and how to get past those obstacles. There is, of course, a creative exercise to build up your creative muscle.
Have you said this statement to yourself? I know that I have. I never thought that being creative is your human nature. It is embedded in our instincts and in our DNA. Only through society have we now lifted up artists to a heroic stature. Listen to this podcast to find out the truth. Do my suggested exercise to train your creative spirit. And as always let me know what you think….

I took a hiatus from the podcast so that I could really get my head around this new season. In this season, I will be talking about creativity. And not just talking about it, but also giving you an exercise with each episode that you can complete to feed your creative spirit and to let it rise within you!!
