Through blogging and Instagramming, I’ve been introduced to an amazing Virtual Sisterhood of Creative Ladies.
The Oh Creative Lady series is your chance to meet these incredible, kind-hearted, inspiring <insert ALL the happy, positive adjectives HERE> women.
I’ve got another amazing 2-for-1 offer for you today! Presenting the 2 Creative Ladies behind the amazing Instagram account, Wonder and Awe. Brea and Karen share oodles of simple, fun and colourful Early Learning activities for your little ones. So much inspiration that is easy to execute at home. Welcome, ladies!
We are… Brea and Karen. Mums. Teachers. Friends.
We became instant friends on our first meeting at Mother’s Group, bonding over the crazy whirlwind that is babies – being up to our eyeballs in milk and nappies, sleep deprivation and our entire lives now being dictated by a tiny human. Between us there are now 5 little monkeys all under the age of 4 and a half!
We find inspiration… being in the presence of small children, surrounded by their chaos, their joy, their wonder and awe… 😉
We are inspired by the ordinary becoming something amazing – and this happens so often when you are with little ones.
We are excited about… the time that is right now.
Life with small kids is chaotic, exhausting and doesn’t always look ‘Insta-worthy’, but we know we only get this time once. They are going to grow so fast and we are just trying to enjoy the crazy ride of little ones under our feet.
When in a creative slump we… sit back and follow the lead of the kids. It is inspiring to see the way they create, imagine and play!
We are really proud of… what we have created with Wonder and Awe. We started it as a way to keep motivated as mothers and teachers and have enjoyed connecting with like-minded people who are also surrounded by the chaos and fun of little ones.
Someone once told me… Being around small kids is hard. Really hard.
- If you wear black, they will have a runny nose.
- If you wear white, they will have muddy hands.
- If you change their nappy, they will immediately poo in the new one.
- If you mop the floor, they will spill something.
- If you say it, they will repeat it.
- If it’s important, they will forget it.
- If you’re tired, they will not be.
- If you love them, you will see the beauty in it all.
Our advice to you is… life doesn’t always look like the colourful feed on Instagram. However, childhood (and the craziness that comes with it) is precious. How lucky are we to be a part of it?!
