A motivational book to encourage overwhelmed moms find time to be creative again in order to be her best self.
If you are a momma with kids at home, you need to read this book and learn that this is not just a season to survive, but this is your time to grow and thrive.
As a new mom, I struggled to balance my new role as ‘Mom’ with the need to take care of myself. Creative Momma empowered me to let go of the mom guilt and set aside more time to fuel myself through creative pursuits.

I’ve heard so many times that the chaos of motherhood is “just a phase” as if we’re supposed to be okay living in survival mode.
Enough is enough.
Twenty months ago I had my second little girl and life was tough. I felt like I was suffocating, my life felt worthless, and every day was the same. After a tough six months battling PPD, I finally realized I couldn’t do it on my own. I got on medication and began seeing a counselor regularly, but the true healing started to come as I got out of the fog and realized I had lost myself.
I was no longer Amanda, a recovering perfectionist, introvert, and creator who likes to feel accomplished.
I was a mom. From sunup to sundown I poured my everything into my girls and I lost myself.
As I worked through the details of my life and how to move forward, I realized I needed to make myself a priority and do something fun every day. I committed to taking time each day to be creative in some way—and to say it helped would be an understatement.
I found joy again. I found laughter and abounding creativity. I cherished my girls. I loved my husband better.
Let’s stop just “surviving” and instead focus on THRIVING. As we explore in Creative Momma, self-care and creativity are a necessary and crucial part of being a momma.
You're a Mom.
Struggling, overwhelmed, loving life, exhausted, happy... If you're a momma with school-age kids or younger, this is for you!

This is a self-empowering book for mom’s to reclaim their lives through creativity. As someone who almost buckled under postpartum anxiety, I applaud that Amanda is raising her voice to talk about how important it is to value mothers as individuals.

I felt like Amanda was talking right to me in this amazing book! I was reminded that it is MY job to take back my creativity and get back to who I really am. Exhausted mamas with shirts covered in spit up, you need to read this book!
