“You’re So Creative!” Fostering Creativity When it Feels Like You’re Faking it

Just because it’s your job to be creative doesn’t mean you have an endless fountain of good ideas — and the motivation to execute them! How can you nurture your creativity so there’s enough for your home, family, blog, sponsorships and even your “day job” without feeling like it’s forced?

Lori Byrne, of Farm Fresh Style, is an interior designer by day, and a mom & wife, a creative, a blogger, and a writer by night and weekend. Her artist grandmother, whom her eldest is named after, is her biggest inspiration. She lives on an acreage in rural North Shore Nova Scotia where they take their sassy pony for walks, create beautiful messes in the studio and where they love hard. She loves to create, whether it’s through upcycling furniture, photographing their life, writing a story or baking a yummy treat to share. Lori’s life is best summed up by this goal of hers — creating a country life in full colour.
