If you seek to create creativity in your life, there are five areas/activities in your life that Amber Cowie can help you identify and cultivate to find space for your work. Nurturing these spaces and moments could turn a glimmer of an idea into the work you’ve been waiting to create. It’s not about making space in your home or your life. It’s about making space in your mind.
