We turn the tables today and Sondra interviews Tammi. The OG Cali girl, Tammi talks about being very driven and a need for gold stars, opting for a career path but how her love of Martha Stewart sparked her creative flame. Always a seeker, even when her drinking amped up after a divorce, she eventually found herself blogging and journaling to find the good things, “I wanted proof of life”. Getting into recovery opened the door for going back to school for art and then led to all of the creative things that Tammi currently pursues (and that we love her for). “If I didn’t have that journal and that pen, I would have bolted.”
The ladies share their top three things in their recovery-slash-creativity toolbox for the week: Sondra’s 3 fave things: Her kids’ improv, embroidery on a rainy day and old family photos. Tammi’s 3 fave things: The Good Life Project podcast from 3/23/17 titled “Don’t Just Ship It”, her Instagram girl crush Tracy@shutterbean, and the slim cans of Perrier Sparkling Mineral Water.
