S: Who is Lindsay?
L: I am a busybody, Jill of all trades, who is always hungry for more creative endeavors. I love textiles, adventure, going to the beach and spending time with family and friends.
I manage Lindsay Robinson Studio and also work as a part-time chef and love being able to cater healthy food to my clients. What I love the most about my business is the opportunity to connect with more folks in the creative community.
S: Tell us what a day in your life looks like.
L: After dropping off my kids to school, I spend some time in my garden - drinking coffee, watering the plants and taking out the weeds. I get most of my cooking and work related stuff done while the kids are at school. These include things like replying to emails, shipping, taking pictures, creating content. I aim to accomplish at least 2 - 3 work related things everyday.
After picking up the kids from school I hang out with them, take them to the park or their classes and run errands.
Evening rituals include dinner, cleaning up, spending some down time with the family and my glass of tequila.
S: How do you replenish your energy?
L: Gardening – growing plants and flowers and taking care of them. I also love going to the beach and spending time in nature.
