CRE­ATIVE LIFE ___________________________

Chic & Country - - Book Mark -

Amanda Blake Soule’s lat­est book, The Cre­ative Fam­ily Man­i­festo, is her homage to cre­ativ­ity and charts how it has been the hall­mark of her fam­ily’s growth and love. Rais­ing 5 chil­dren in Maine has been quite an ex­pe­ri­ence for Amanda, and the im­pact of cre­ativ­ity, na­ture and the sim­ple plea­sure of her sur­round­ings has been pro­found. Amanda ex­plains how to nur­ture the cre­ative mind and to be re­source­ful in so do­ing. She ex­pands on the im­por­tance of fos­ter­ing imag­i­na­tion and sup­port­ing the tra­di­tion of hand­made. She shows how it is pos­si­ble to be cre­ative about al­most ev­ery­thing.

She tells us to en­cour­age cu­rios­ity, to em­brace the mess, to share your pas­sions with the world and to play, play, play (no mat­ter how old you are). Her in­struc­tions to seek beauty, to be still some­times and to love fiercely are pow­er­ful re­minders of how to live the jour­ney of life.
