If you’re anything like us, you probably get a bit antsy or grumpy if you spend too long away from creative pursuits. A night in front of the sewing machine fills your well, scribbling a potential quilt design on a napkin gives you a creative fix. At MM, a rough day is always soothed by equal doses of chocolate and EPP. It always astounds us when people say they aren’t creative. We firmly believe everyone has the innate ability to be creative. We were so excited to get the opportunity to talk to artist, quilter and creativity enabler Carrie Bloomston,
