Hi there! Welcome to This Creative Life, a creative lifestyle shop and blog. We’re all ll about color, creativity, community, planners, small biz tips, and inspired living. We love sharing art, design, handmade, planner girl, geeky, and pop culture finds.

Bear Hat Sass

My name is Renée, founder of This Creative Life, and designer/owner of Travel Bear Bureau. I work part-time, year round for Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, am board chair for Chula League (the nonprofit that produces Cherrywood Art Fair), and a former Co-President and producer of Austin Craft Riot (ACR) and ACR handmade shows.

I love doing anything creative and sharing my experiences to help others grow their business. I obsess over social media, Doctor Who, planners (you can never have too many, right?!), and cute things. I enjoy good bubble tea, cute pastries, yoga, music, gaming, and roller derby. You can often find me in bear hats. Let’s have tea sometime!
