Editorial Reviews

“Amanda Soule has been a beacon of light for so many of us creative, full-hearted women. Through her blog and her books she inspires, teaches, and shows us how to bring creativity into the every day. The Creative Family Manifesto is gift to us all.”—Carrie-Anne Moss, actress and founder of Annapurna Living“The work of Amanda Soule has weaved its way into so many of our homes, and what was a pioneering proclamation ten years ago, The Creative Family Manifesto has circled back once again to restore its rightful place on our nightstands . . . motivating us to live more fully.—Ashley Yousling, creator of Woolful“Amanda’s original book, The Creative Family, was my blueprint as a young mom. It helped shape my approach to parenting and our value system as a family. Her simple projects and activities became part of our daily lives and helped us start our own traditions. My kids are entering their teenage years now, but their unplugged, imaginative childhoods set the foundation for the thoughtful, creative people they've become. In this new version, The Creative Family Manifesto, Amanda gets to the heart of how to cultivate creativity and togetherness. If I had to choose one book to gift new mothers, this would it. I am so excited to watch as the next generation is shaped by the wisdom in these pages.”—Erin Benzakein, author of Floret Farm’s Cut Flower Garden“When The Creative Family was published ten years ago, I was a mom of two young children. At that time, Amanda’s lovely words inspired a new level of appreciation and discovery that helped guide me through those simple (at times monotonous) days I spent with my little family. The simple prompts reminded me to stay present and curious. My original, dog-eared, bookmarked copy, along with this newly released version, will be passed on to my son and daughter as they begin their own families.”—Blair Stocker, author of Wise Craft Quilts “In the face of technological advances and endless child-raising possibilities, it’s easy to lose site of what matters most. The Creative Family Manifesto brings us back to the basics with a grounded reminder that creativity starts with family connection, play, rituals, and a focus on the handmade. When I was a new parent, this was the book that set me on my creative parenting journey. If you’re looking for direction on how to gracefully weave creativity into your family life, look no further than Amanda Blake Soule as your trusted guide.”—Rachelle Doorley, author of Tinkerlab "A delightful book for all readers with an artistic bent."—Library Journal
