Hey all

I just wanted to create a page with everything in one place for my Arts Council Funded project Creativity Island for Mums.

It’s been a BRILLIANT 12 months creating content and experiences for mums both online and in person.

I’ve called it the ‘Everything in one Place’ page. I feel like our brains are often scrambled enough with ALL the things…so hopefully this is a super simple navigation of where to go if you want to take part.

It’s also to help me make sense of navigating the final phase of the project; creating the journal. The journal is a REAL passion project and a lesson for me in letting go of perfectionism. I simple don’t have time for it as a mum of two… more on that soon.

Feedback so far…

Firstly, I definitely give your project 5 stars!

Secondly, I think this project is one of the things that has brought a little light to each of our days. I like how all of the exercises in the journal/ the Facebook group etc are all quite small and manageable. The exercises just for me were helpful on those days where I felt like I was exhausted and drowning. And the tasks such as the Halloween/ Christmas window were great for taking away that – ‘Sh**, what am I going to do with the kids all day?!’ feeling. My one year old loves the kitpas crayons now and we actually regularly wash off and reinvent our window now. Thank you Claire!
