Farm Days: Planning

Farm Days: Planning - Small Farm Life in Alberta - Organic Flower Farm

 

Farmers talk about an “off season” and a “growing season”. And yes, it’s true that there is an “off season” of sorts, I’m finding with each year that our off season is still busy.

Daily Dose: Creativity

Your Daily Reminder: Do Something Creative Today

This is your friendly reminder to do something creative today! I often overlook the things I do that are creative. Long ago, I became more conscious of fostering daily creativity, in various forms. Now, I need to become more intentional about seeing that creativity again. Also, love that bit about connecting with God during creative times.

Here’s some of the ways I incorporate creativity into daily life:

  • adult colouring books {of course!}
  • mixing up essential oils concoctions
  • crochet
  • hand stitching for the Etsy shop
  • product//blog//IG photoshoots
  • free play LEGO building
  • making “happy mail” postcards//packages for our friends
  • playing with//creating flower arrangements

So, what are YOU going to do today?

PS ~ These wonderful reminders & prompts are from one set of Victory Cards from the All Things Good Collective

Wanted: Garden Gnome to work on a small Alberta farm

It’s true! On our farm biz side of life, we are HIRING! We are currently looking for a student*, or garden gnome, interested in working on our farm. We deliver product to Calgary and the surrounding area, as well as are opening a trust-based on-farm store in 2018.

*This is a grant supported job for students. Highschool or postsecondary. Trades and vocational schools work fine too, as does upgrading
