To best allow mamas to (Re)Discover Creativity with intention, I chose to first offer this workbook in “good old-fashioned” paper format. However, since we all absorb information differently I also created Video Lessons, with companion Worksheets, for your viewing pleasure!
** In the interest of SERVICE, I am offering the full set of Video Lessons for FREE **
Just follow the YouTube links below (and if you still want to throw some bones my way, scroll farther down for the “But Now” button).
NOTE on Companion Worksheets: Follow the link to each, download, then open on your computer’s PDF-reader to fill out.
NOTE on Actions/projects: General Materials Needed – Journal/paper & pen, Word/similar computer program, voice memo, or follow the links above to my Worksheets on Google Drive. [Additional materials needed for mini-actions/projects listed below.]
