The longing for a peaceful creative retreat at a cabin in the mountains is probably high on the wish lists of creative people everywhere. But the fact is, our mountaintop creative moments don’t happen all that often, and we probably need to dream a little closer to our own backdoors if we’re ever going to make creative retreats happen in our own lives. Today we’re chatting about those retreats, the dreamy ideal ones and the real ones.
Thanks to sponsor Jennie Moraitis and her Creative Retreat workbook!
In the Creative Retreat workbook, there are activities to get your creative juices flowing and blank pages to do idea dumps when you need them. It’s a planning resource + coloring book combined, and it’s full of Jennie’s signature adorable doodles. If you struggle to make the time that you have for your creative projects count, this workbook can help. It’ll walk you through why you want to take a retreat, how to get started, and how to keep the magic flowing even once you come back home.
