Finding Creativity and Clarity with Christy Sing Robertson

Episode 21 of the Soft Focus Podcast

Creating something beautiful requires talent, humility, and grit. In our digital world, we often want to gloss over the less glamorous parts of the process, and focus exclusively on the end-product, the perfected image of a job well done. But, underneath any craft or creation is a story of a maker, and how they developed their unique gifts.

Christy Sing Robertson, today’s guest, wasn’t always a hatter. In fact, the decision to create custom hats came later in life by way of an intuitive pull. Since starting on her journey, Christy has created not only a custom hat company focused on premium-quality bespoke hats, but also a new way of life and flow for herself and her family.  

On today’s episode, Christy generously walks us through her journey in finding her creative passion, her commitment to timelessness and quality, how she overcame adrenal burnout, and all the ways that connecting with her boundaries and non-negotiable needs have driven her to grow personally and professionally.  

Christy and Corinne discuss:

  • What’s the ethos of Sing Hat Company
  • Christy’s intuitive nudge to take a hat making apprenticeship
  • How Christy chose to trust her process in making a big pivot and developing her craft
  • The humility to learn something new, and put the time in to learn

  • Christy’s choice to have her business revolve around her family life, and not the other way around
  • The ways mothering and motherhood can reflect internal healing and personal growth
  • They ways Sing Hat Company has taught Christy how to mother
  • Christy’s experience with adrenal burnout

Mother nature provides all things for us. Nature does not ruin our plans. We feel this way when our systems are not resilient enough to exist with nature in harmony.
