We were in the same room for the third time ever for our first (and hopefully not the last!) creative retreat. And we decided to record an episode all about how we made it happen, what our plan was, and what we accomplished while in a valley near LaCrosse, WI with no WiFi for 48 hours.
Resources We Mentioned
We first heard about creative retreats from Jennie Moraitis back in episode 12 of the first season of Chasing Creative.
Ashley was making a sweater as part of the 100 Day Project which ends in early July.
