I think often it’s hard to find time to create because we think creative pursuits are meaningless, that even if it may be beneficial to us it seems like a time waster. BUT for all you fellow lovers of efficiency, creativity CAN be practical as well! For instance, are you having people over? Bake a special cake or delicious cookies the day before. Are you home all day and your bare walls are bugging you? Spend a couple hours making a gallery wall or painting a picture for the mantle. Love crocheting? Make scarves or a hat for Christmas gifts!
Creativity can be practical. I know sometimes we have to make this switch in our mind. Creating and beauty can be practical. It’s a win-win!
