Finding Time for Crafting

BeadAndWireDec2013AndJan2014 (3)Finding Time for Crafting can be very hard these days. Even though Mom and I are retired we still have busy schedules with the volunteering we do at Florida State Parks and traveling around the state with each new assignment. Our volunteer campground host volunteer assignments only last anywhere from two to 4 months a piece before we have to move again. And living and working in an RV doesn’t really leave us a lot of room for our crafting supplies let alone our finished products.

But getting back to the subject of finding time for our crafts. There is only a few things you can do to make time for your crafts. One would be to make a schedule and commit yourself to certain days and/or hours that you will do your crafts. Once you make your schedule you will have to enlist the help of the people you live with so that they will know that you will not be available for carpooling, making snacks, running errands or doing household chores during these time periods. You have to be firm and stick to it. You may have to experiment with days and times because you may not be as productive late at night as you are in the morning or vice-versa. Of course, it is also nice if your crafting space is organized so that you don’t have to spend a lot of time looking for the supplies that you want.

For those who only do their crafts when inspiration hits may have to rethink their creative processes. Unless you have a very fluid schedule and very understanding roommates this working when the mood strikes is hard to do. With a little practice, patience and persistence you can create a schedule for yourself. In the end you may find yourself being more productive.

One final tip I would suggest is that you keep a notepad and pen with you at all times. You just never know when inspiration will hit. That way you can jot down a few notes to read over and create those amazing crafts when your crafting day comes around.
