Season 2 – Episode 4: Noelle Libby, farm lady, rescue mom, photographer, crafty maker-of-things, homeschooler, and just a generally badass wild soul mama

A woods-witchy chat with Noelle Libby, farm lady, rescue mom, photographer, crafty maker-of-things, homeschooler, and just a generally badass wild soul mama.

We discuss hiding from our children (in trucks…or barns with witchy goats), tiny house living for chickens, accidental homesteading and sustainable families, adventures in homeschooling, fighting SAHM boredom with creative outlets, making creativity work FOR you (so you don’t have to work for someone else), not knowing what you’re doing (but doing it anyway), the magic of creative flow when it’s “on”…but also respecting when it’s not, and focusing on what feels good.

Season 2 – Episode 3: Lindsay Torrey, baker extraordinaire and cookie decoratrix, all around crafty lady, and one of those “outdoorsy moms.”

A mouth-watering chat with Lindsay Torrey, baker extraordinaire and cookie decoratrix, all around crafty lady, and one of those “outdoorsy moms” that I aspire to be.

In which we discuss the artists’ compulsion to make ALL THE THINGS yourself, the truth that yes you really do suck at first (but you DO get better!), how someone else’s faith in your abilities can light your spark, the cult cookie scene of Portland (ME), pregnant women addicted to sweet/salty treats, creative journeys taking WAY longer than expected, the great side-hustle debate continues (sometimes it’s the goal, sometimes it’s not – AND THAT’S OK!), a pep-talk for “indoorsy” types on how getting the kids outside actually makes parenting easier, the constant marination of the artists’ brain, and digging out from our hoarder piles of “potential” craft supplies.

Water Witching – My SheSpeaks Story

MelissaMullenPhotography-SheSpeaks-7915
A few months ago, the unstoppable Lael Couper Jepson of SheChanges asked me to be a part of her annual (and extremely popular) SheSpeaks women’s storytelling event that came to pass just two weeks ago, in early December. Of course, I said yes – because I KNOW about the power of women’s stories (and I also know that it’s a good thing to get out of our comfort zones every now and then #introvert). The official blurb for my story – Water Witching – below:

How have I disconnected from the ability to access the creative depths within myself? What is it about becoming a mother that has caused me to lose sight of the most powerful portals into my being? Corinne is grappling with these questions as she finds her way back to her energetic source—where she used to swim freely with unapologetic entitlement. Corinne’s story will lift the veil on the ways we honor and abandon ourselves in this thing we call life.

Now that the dust has settled (and my nerves have mostly gone back to base level), I wanted to share the LIVE audio of my SheSpeaks story here, as it’s really the story of my journey to starting Who’s Your Mama Media.
