The Key to Staying Creative Beyond Quarantine

Posted on: May 20, 2020

Remember when creating consistently felt like a pipe dream for so many of us with relentlessly busy lives?

And then, COVID-19 happened. Beginning in March, many of us started baking bread, dusting off our piano, and painting for the first time in ages.

Stay-at-home orders forced us to dabble in new ways, and we found that even though we missed our friends and family, we really liked having time to express ourselves. 

So: What’s next?

What will become of the creative renaissance that has blossomed in our lives post-pandemic? How can we hold on to the creative practices we cultivated while in quarantine—or finally push past self-doubt to get started? 

On episode 28 of She Made It, Clara and I are coming to you from our closets to share a sneak peek of what we’ve been creating during quarantine and all of our best tips for embracing (and maintaining) your creativity in this unique era we’re living through.
