It used to be easy to find time to be creative. When I was in high school, I used to paint or sculpt as a daily past time or just a way to relax and relieve stress. Now, I'm very lucky to find moments where I can sit down and see a project through. Usually I have the time to start a creative work and then maybe revisit it in a week or month or more...but I wouldn't trade the precious time I get to spend caring for our beautiful children and my wonderful husband. My creativity has been mostly redirected to the culinary arts, and attempting to make a clean canvas of my home. When I have the opportunity I usually try to put my artistic creativity to use constructively in our home like refinishing furniture found at yard sales, sewing All Hallows Eve costumes, or helping our children explore the world of art. Some windows for personal creativity open now and then. Usually they are late at night after everyone is sleeping...as should I also be.
