Creating Room for Calm

Creating Room for Calm

Throughout several years of working alongside creators, we've discovered seven distinct reasons why we are driven to create—joy, calm, connection, energy, growth, expression, and renewal. We call these the creative intentions. 

In Step One of the Create Room Journey, you can learn about the different types of core creative intentions and their meanings. During each of your creative sessions, you can choose which intention you would like to fulfill. This month, we invite you to focus with us on creating room for calm!

Create Room For Calm  

Are you someone who finds crafting to be therapeutic? We hear this often from members of the Create Room community and have experienced it ourselves. There is something about using your hands to create something that is grounding and comforting.  

What helps you feel calm? 

While you may feel a sense of calm by sitting down to create without distraction, there are other activities to consider adding into your routine this month as well. Tapping into the five senses through sounds and smells can bring more peace and relaxation into your creative space. 

The Create Room Speakers and Aromatherapy Kit (pictured below) are a great option for easily integrating these concepts into your workspace. 

Another activity you may find calming is journaling. The Create Room Planner gives you guided prompts to explore your creative personality, plan your craft projects, and more! You can start anytime with the undated pages. This month may be the perfect time to jump in. 

From our Founder

We asked our founder, Yvonne, to share with us how she experiences calm.

"I can’t talk about “calm” without mentioning my husband, Wayne. His loving influence and encouragement over 33 years of marriage is priceless to me. He has always supported my crafting crazes, sewing messes, and JoAnn’s shopping trips.

So many of us can create more calm in our homes through our chosen craft. Music helps me feel calm and focused! What helps you?"Yvonne, Create Room Co-Founder

Our team has handpicked a playlist of songs that help us achieve overall calm. Go ahead and tune into this playlist as you craft this month! 



Sometimes, it can be difficult to remember your intentions amidst a busy schedule. To help you remember your intention on the go, we've created calm themed wallpapers as a consistent reminder of your commitment to focus on calm throughout the rest of this month.
