Although I work with a lot of creative industries, I never considered myself a creative person. That is until one of my clients reminded me that being creative can come in many forms. Now, there’s no escape from cutting a few corners when it comes to meal planning if you’re a “momtrepreneur” and I’ve done it quite a bit over the past few years. However, when I began to think about what type of activities inspire me to be creative, my mind wandered right into the kitchen. Of course, starting from scratch was key, and what better way to honor my Italian grandmother’s legacy than by teaching Marcy how to make homemade pasta, just like Grandma did for me.

The busyness of life often gets in the way of us slowing down and creating something meaningful in our lives. What’s something you do that gets you out of routine, away from the screens, and into creative mode?
